I run a kinda weird partial hippy lifestyle that falls apart when I'm serious about science. I bike to work and walk most everywhere else, unless it's fearsome far. I like to be outside in nature - hiking, canoeing, whatnot. I embrace some things on the grounds of "naturalness" - it's a big part of why I call myself an ideologically committed omnivore. I refuse to shop at Walmart. But I eschew organic foods, which cost more, are a bad use of arable land when there are people to feed, and generally have a worse carbon foodprint (nevermind that certifications are pretty arbitrary), and yet embrace local food. I also have no use for holistic/natural medicine say - you just can't trust snake oil unless you know it's made from real snakes. I guess I'm a bit of a homebody; I enjoy both cooking and brewing something fierce, which dulls the impulse to go out. Sadly, this isn't great for meeting people. Merely yelling "I need someone to drink my beer so I can justify brewing more." into the street rarely works out well.
Hence, my presence here.
I am Goofy, Energetic, and Fun
