Mr. Philstivus, aka Philip Bonifonte, has led a life of quiet desperation with brief periods of sheer terror and ultimate joy thrown into the mix. He has been a martial arts instructor, chemist, industrial safety manager, strip club bouncer, construction equipment mechanic and all-around great guy (depending upon who you ask).
He is the author of T’ai-Chi for Seniors, How To Buy Weed and his latest book, The Great Hamster Land-Speed Record, along with several thousand articles, blog posts and forum commentaries. Not that that all really means anything, but it sounds impressive, doesn’t it?
Mr. Philstivus is currently semi-retired and spends his days writing, drinking coffee, spanking his cat and dreaming of moving to a trashy single-wide on the East coast of Florida.
