That is you in a nut shell. Unpredictable, unimaginable, something the world didn't know it needed to fear until now.

помидор (pomidor)

This pronunciation sounds similar to the hairstyle pompadour and therefore leads to an interesting tomato/puffed up hair combination which would be horrific in any interpretation.

As the Russian word for tomato, you are a highly creative individual with mastermind capabilities.
