Chris Yukna was born
in the antediluvian 50s,
had a paper route at 9,
sold Christmas cards door
to door at 11, and washed
dishes at 14. All these
enriching work experiences convinced him early on
that he was totally unsuited to working and
therefore should become a space cadet, mad
scientist, or teacher.
He has three websites that he tries to update
Science General (fun with science)
Business Emporium (Esl business lessons & quizzes)
Totally Unorthodox (where he puts everything else)
