    I have started reading the Sherlock Holmes

    stories since seeing Sherlock on the TV. And I have managed to record a few of the Jeremy Brett programs too, he is so good, I have him and Watson - the second one not the first one with Brett - in my head when I am reading them. I never thought they would be so good.

    He's the reason why I took psychology

    and criminal justice and got degrees in college. Other than his modern media reincarnation - Dr. Gregory House - there is no other philosophical and fundamental genius. I'm his biggest fan; I've adopted his logic of deductive reason as my main source of functioning in our messed...
