I believe in freedom of speech.
I believe that censorship needs to be fought, wherever it may occur.
I believe in coincidences, as opposed to fate.
I believe in evolution.
I believe in the free will of mankind.
I believe in human rights.
I strongly (and vocally) object against religion, and its proponents.
Now, the about me:
I work with IT, by choice, because I happen to be good at it.
It's been something of a hobby of mine for many years, so I thought "Hey, why not make a career of it?". So I did.
Stereotypically enough, I'm into games, TV shows, movies and whatnot, but I have other interests too!
For example, I'm very much into philosophical ramblings, fixing world problems, photography, cars, and testing out new candy that I find in stores.
I have many senses of humour, some of them good, while others are hilarious -- I manage to cater to most social settings without upsetting anyone, though. It's a gift, truly.
I wish to one day boast about my literacy, because I really do love to read. It's just that I have a (growing) backlog of must-reads. My favourite books, currently, are like the Discworld Novels, or The Wheel of Time series. I also have to get started on A Song of Ice And Fire some day soon...
I haven't ready Tolstoy, Austen, Beckett, Defoe or Dickens. I haven't read Kafka, Solzhenitsyn or Joyce. Yet.
I thoroughly enjoyed George Orwell, and would like to get around to the others some day, but for now they're in the "to read"-bin.
Oh yeah, and Richard Dawkins has some great reads.
What I do find time for these days (besides work), is games, certain TV shows, and lots of hanging out with my friends, possibly just chilling at the cabin for the weekend. Also, reddit.
I tend to never plan my weekday evenings, but I'm out of the house more than I'm in. I don't know how it happens, it just does.
Activities and day planning are totally subject to change depending on who I run into. I rarely decline offers to hang out, even though I sometimes should.
It's also worth noting that I am an INTJ.
If you know what such an acronym means without having to google it, I implore you to message me - You're already interesting!
I absolutely love figuring out how stuff works, be it mechanical or software - and I am ever inquisitive about way, way too many other topics to list here. But here's a short list: Philosophy, Anthropology, Sociology, Linguistics, Medical Science, Physics (including Nuclear and Quantum), Space, World politics, Law/Legal debacles also intrigue me greatly. The thing is I have a working (or better) understanding of so many topics, and find all of them utterly fascinating - and I also love expanding my knowledge on these (and other) subjects. Some day I hope to become an encyclopedia. I already have my Thesaurus badge, and am the go-to person for anyone that can't recall a word, or its meaning.
I realise I haven't written anything about music, but just take my word for it that I'm very passionate about it - though I don't currently play any instruments. I used to DJ (Still have the vinyl), and listen to a wide variety of musical genres - though I have a penchant for electronic genres, and rap/hip hop. But I also listen to so much else, so I kind of hate bringing it up - I never get to finish listing stuff before someone objects.

I am articulate, witty, and sometimes very pedantic.
