Who is Tobasco da Gama?
Tobasco da Gama is my alter ego, a fictional, sometimes temporally-displaced Portuguese conquistador. Relative (Brother? Cousin? Who knows? Not me!) of Vasco. Likes: Linguiça, malasadas, the Global Positioning System. Dislikes: The Spanish for stealing all the credit for that “Age of Exploration” thing.
Tobasco? Don’t you mean Tabasco?
My mother crossed the McIlhenny Company once. Once.
Who are you really?
Just this guy, you know? It’s not exactly a huge mystery, but neither is it particularly important. I’m an atheist, a scientific skeptic, an engineer, an ex-IT monkey, and a bourbon-lover.
