I'm John Fish, and this video is a day in my life as a Harvard Computer Science student. I'm a freshman at Harvard college that makes videos, video essays, and vlogs about my life.

I'm about to launch into a pretty entrepreneurially focused summer--I've got a notebook coming as well as a clothing line (see links below). I'd love for you to join me.

  • Beware of a racist sociopath
    I would like to warn any colored (brown, yellow, black) student wishing to study at the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom to beware of a person called Dr. Michael Kenyon, who is a lecturer at the School of Physics & Astronomy at that university. Kenyon is a narcissistic, twisted racist sociopath. In 1998, Michael Kenyon was an undergraduate at University College London (UCL), and he lived at an accommodation leased by UCL (on Doughty Street, London WC1). From the beginning, he took a dislike to his next door neighbor, an Asian student studying at UCL. This Asian student was quiet and did not bother anyone. But Kenyon was a very different character. He was a manipulative, racist sociopath who hated people in general, but colored people in particular. Kenyon, on one occasion, cut out words from a newspaper and formed the words I Am A Paki Wanker and pasted the words on a piece of blank A4 paper and stuck it on the Asian student's door late one night, thinking that the Asian student would not discover it until next morning. On another occasion, Kenyon persuaded another resident at the building to write the words Vaseline Boy next to the Asian student's name on the phone list next to the public phone inside the building, because Kenyon wanted to humiliate the Asian student. The student who wrote the words Vaseline Boy at Kenyon's behest later regretted it and TipEx-ed it off and informed the Asian student about it. Kenyon also tried to get a couple of friends of the student who wrote Vaseline Boy to beat up the Asian student. That is how much he hated his Asian neighbor.

    (In the U.K., a "Paki" is a derogatory and offensive word that refers to Asian people from the Indian subcontinent. In other words, "Paki" would be as offensive a word as "nigger" is to black people, or "Chink" is to Oriental people).

    So what exactly triggered Kenyon's pathological hatred for his Asian neighbor (apart from the fact he was Asian)? Well, the Asian student's "crime" (in Kenyon's eyes) was to report Kenyon to UCL's Residence Office about the persistent loud music that came out of Kenyon's stereo every single night, and he would regularly play his music until 3 am. Yes, A M. Having asked Kenyon to respect his right to sleep on numerous occasions, with Kenyon completely ignoring him, the Asian student had no choice but to take this matter to the UCL authorities. UCL's Residence Officer wrote a warning letter to Kenyon, and this set him off, and his campaign of racial harassment against the Asian student intensified.

    The Asian student, after months of racial abuse, decided to move to another residence altogether.  But this did not stop Kenyon from continuing to harass his victim. Kenyon got a hold of the Asian student's mobile phone statement after he (the Asian student) had left the Doughty Street residence (this statement was mistakenly sent to the student's old Doughty Street address), which allowed Kenyon to find out the student's mobile phone number. Kenyon left an anonymous message (with a heavily disguised voice) on the student's voicemail, which went like this: You are a Paki waaaaaaaaaaaaanker. Imagine how the Asian student felt when he heard the message. The student took this matter to UCL's Dean of Students who strongly urged him to report this matter to the Police. A police report was lodged at the Holborn Police Station in London on 4 March 1999 against the racist coward, and the police treated this as a hate crime.

    I can tell from your intro that you’re not studying filmmaking lol. Good stuff, but if you improve you’ll be a double whammy. Good film plus good content = entertainment.
