Darren Peets

Darren Peets is a remarkable guy. I met him when he was a grad student at UBC and I was an undergrad. He was the guy who lived in the computer lab who knew all the unix commands. but he also did other amazing things like: ran a fire hydrant in several elections and singlehandedly killed an attempt to put a high-rise condominium complex in the middle of campus down wind from the chemistry chimneys (he was the only one who noticed).

Darren has more fun than everyone combined. maybe if you are lucky, when you die, you will be reincarnated as Darren Peets.

He’s an expert on superconductors and studies magnet stuff as a postdoc at the Max Planck institute.
