Interesting facts about Shane:
* He carried around a piece of gravel in his pocket for 11 years!
* Likes to bring up the time he bought cheap CDs in Bulgaria for some reason!
* He types about himself in the third person!
* The person he most often met while time travelling is Napoleon. Once he was in ancient Greece and there Napoleon was, buying a bouzouki. “What are you doing in Ancient Greece?” Shane asked. Napoleon shrugged and said “the exchange rate is good” in French. Seemed a bit embarrassed at being recognised, actually.
