When Dr. Oleg C. Kalapushkenitz recently heard of the crisis facing America's schools he realized he had no choice but to swing into action. Reaching out to the copy crisis team at the Robert Moses Middle School in NY where symptoms of the strange, contagious disease affecting school photocopy machines and contributing to global warming were first discovered and offering to lend a hand with the diagnosis.
Of course, he's no ordinary scientist. Rather, he's an internationally renowned expert in rare diseases, and brings his considerable expertise to the task at hand. He's purportedly of Russian descent; though he's offered few such details so far. And while details of his background are somewhat incomplete, references at the Animal Disease Center on Plum Island where he's been helping scientists discover a cure for some of the most contagious diseases on Earth indicate he's the type of guy you want on your side in a crisis.
Now luckily for schools everywhere, he's moved quickly to set up a lab in Room 210 at the Robert Moses Middle School, where some students have begun affectionately referring to him by the nickname "Dr. OCK". And recently he offered TreeHugger an exclusive peek into the inside world of a scientist so reclusive you won't find him listed in a phone book or internet search engine anywhere.
Of course if your school photocopy machine is exhibiting symptoms of a strange, contagious disease that's making it chew up trees at an amazing rate while contributing to global warming, "Dr. OCK" is quick to point out that it's imperative you send an email to the copy crisis team to register a "Confirmed Case" by the April 15th deadline and help solve The Great Copy Machine Epidemic of 2008. The planet you save may be your own.
