Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I should clarify at the very front, that this profile may sound
more witty and less boring than I am in real life. And that is
putting it mildly. Seriously. In the interest of truth in
advertising I should perhaps totally remodel my profile, but I
somehow grew emotionally attached to it.
When this site still had the three adjectives I was testy,
grumpy, and lazy. Actually, I'm still testy, grumpy, and lazy,
but now I'm not showing it in large letters.
Another of these "I'm here for the tests" accounts. And for the
journals (they no longer exist, sigh). And for the interesting

In some sense, I'm easy to convert: Any well laid-out philosophical
argument can get my agreement. Only my inertia counters this
tendency. I've converted from socialism to communism to cynicism.

materialism to radical constructivism to

To give an idea what I've learned at university, I'll name drop the
book "PCT, Spin and Statistics, and All That". But I wasn't very
focused. During dull lectures I may have read "Anti-Dühring".
Now, what I'm doing since then to pay my bill is just software
development, as everybody else, so to say.

Butt groping. Talking about Epikur, Gödel, Schrödinger's cat, and
Wigner's friend. Fine print alert: depends on my mood and how
much I feel intimidated by you. But having my hand at your
butt seems to catalyze my talking skills. Did I mention butt
groping? Fine print alert: Safe, sane, and consensual. In fact
it may be a good idea to explicitly state consent to butt groping,
as I can be shy at times. And don't hold back to grope my butt

What I was thinking about previously:
I guess you don't want to know. Not because it is a deep, dark
secret -- I wish! It's just that most of the time I think about
rather boring, everyday things: How to get my day work done, how to
pay the bills, whether I suck at parenting, why the hell I ended up
with so little time and energy left to think about more interesting
At the rare opportunities I think about less boring things, I may
think about V=L, mathematical Platonism, the multitude of "r"
phonemes, whether language really is an instinct, or how much
