Managing Real Rums! - Anagramming rules!

Hello and welcome to my personal space!

I am Caiman raptor elk (not related in any way to "raptor elks" from Brütal Legend, I only found out about those later, after choosing the name from an anagramming session). I also have no relation to the Cayman islands, banks or otherwise. After 11 years of anonymous visiting of h2g2, I registered just before my 42nd birthday in 2017.

My Satnav says I live in The Netherlands, close to where the late Hiëromimus Bosch lived (maybe that is where I got my somewhat surrealistic sidestepping mind from)

My interest in the site has moved from the initial infinite improbability drive binge (I am interested in virtually everything) to the lounge, the post and peer review (Why wait for finished pieces if you can read them raw). So far I greatly enjoyed participating in the Najopomo 2019 and 2020 writing challenges, which resulted in the cooperative "30 hours in Hooverville" and my own short story

My real life interests include but are not restricted to: Rowing, my wife and 3 children, mechanical engineering, Douglas Adams / Terry Pratchett and other humorous SF and fantasy, walking, mountaineering, camping, roller coasters, musicals and music in general. (not specifically in this particular order). H2O(s)-hockey has gone out of favour. Singing in a pop-choir has been a rekindled interest, only to be hampered by COVID restrictions. My musical taste is the sum total of the musical tastes of most people I know and then some more.

My 42nd year passed and I can't say it enlightened me any more about the question to the answer.

Unless it is: What is 22! / (5173192640)?

I find it weird that my dedicated calculator can only get up to 69!, while my smartphone can handle up to 449!

My message to the world:  Turn snark to snork

At irregular intervals, I write a column "Caiman pacifying the offspring" for the Post, where I share my experiences of a dad of three, focusing on what you can do to keep them occupied / civilised and more things ending in -ed. Holiday setups at different ages feature heavily in it.

Alternate anagrams for my name include:

Mark el Tropicana
Tamara El Kipcorn
Prolactine karma
Panoramic Talker
Platonic Earmark
Panama rock tiler
American park lot 
Park into Caramel
Polar knit camera
Make cranial port
Catnap Marker Oil
Rank cop material
Manila retro pack
Erratic napalm OK
Minor alpaca trek
Crampon kilt area
Mean airlock trap
Knit palace armor
Pork Maniac Alert
Aromatic planker
Captain Lo remark

But that is just a selection of the English results. (Guess I have a suitable name for anagramming)

Adding my graduate title yields:

Inspect anagram blocker
Bricks neglect panorama
Sacramental Bong Picker

Or Dutch specific

Alpaca kirt enorm
Amicale portknar
Corrie klampt aan
Normale praktica
Cairo kamerplant
Cateraar in klomp
Arcana likte romp
Citroën klapraam
Micro alpenkaart
Nakaart compiler
Kernramp coïtaal
Proclamatie knar
Oma praat ‘n cirkel
