You can't stay ahead of disaster forever, though, and I'm a different kind of guy now. Real liberal - everyone's more or less the same inside, you know? People draw false distinctions to make themselves feel unique, but if you've got a brain and a pulse, you've got a whole lot of the same things going for you as anyone else.
Which brings me to what I'm interested in: meeting people with a brain. I like thinkers, you know? Philosophers, sociologists, scientists, engineers, writers, perpetual students, that sort of thing. They've got a unique flavour to them that I just can't help but want to be around.
