Faster than a bull elephant seal on land; more powerful than a loco novelists' motive; able to travel to the top of tall buildings in a push button elevator; these are the adventures of Mean Man.
Born in a small convent on the former leper and convict colony of Norfolk Island to Sister Agatha of the Immaculate Conception and an un-named omnipotent father the babe who was destined to become Mean Man was christened "Lolygobbleblissbloms Adams" after one of sister Agatha's favourite sweets. This was quickly shortened to Blom due to contractual obligations and the space available on the birth certificate.
Blom Adams was a happy child, but when the English government resumed transportation of convicts in 1977, the order of nuns including Sister Agatha stationed on Norfolk Island panicked and ran like lemmings to dive off the high cliffs at one end of the picturesque holiday isle. Blom was sent to live with a foster family on the mainland - the Fosters. Marcella Foster worked as a tax accountant and Gordon Foster was a statistician with the national Bureau of Statistics. They treated Blom like one of their other twenty-six foster children that lived in the empty water tank in their back yard.
One fateful day, all was to change for Blom. He accompanied his father to work one day and while playing with the photocopier he received an innocuous looking paper cut on his hand as he was retrieving a copy.
"Ouch!" Blom cried sticking his finger into his mouth.
"There's a two percent chance that your paper cut could become infected and you could die a horrible death." His statistician foster father snapped, snatching the photocopied sheet from Blom and perusing the page.
