    I'm right here. I look for smart people, and then I eat them. And I don't mean that sexually, silly.

    The real hannibal lived around 50 BCish on the northern tip of africa. He spent many a days ravaging the roman empire up and down the coasts of italy. *livin date is just a guess

    Hannibal Lecter, the eater of people, is fictional.

    My thoughts exactly.

    He's not real, but he's probably a composite character based off real people. If you do a Google search, you'll probably find out much more information than you'd want to know.
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.
