I have a very dry sense of humor, though you can tell when I am serious because I have to use the word "seriously". Fair warning, as dry as it is, I'm pretty much never serious. Also dumb jokes and puns are friggen fantastic.
I have one very general philosophy: Don't be a dick.
Treating half of humanity as less than human is being a dick. Racism is being a dick. yelling at a cashier because you're mildly inconvenienced by a slight wait is being a dick. Robbing a bank is being a dick. Making rape jokes is being a dick. Dicks need to be called out on their dickishness. Other than that, Im usually pretty Live-and-Let-Live. Do what you like, enjoy what you want. Just dont be a dick.
Now to get away from that bit of angry rant, Time fer other stuff!
what of ridiculous things do I enjoy, you may be wondering. Well, generally i let my interests display that. But for a brief summary i can name some stuff.
My goal in life is to adopt a cat and name it Potato, and I own a stuffed charizard.
Speaking of cats, i apparently like to torture myself by looking at cat pictures online.
I mean torturing. So much adorable.
I'm a fan of plastic models and whiskey, though i highly recommend never mixing the two.
I often spell "you're" and "your" as "yer" and say "for" as "fer". not because they're shorter to write, but because I tend to write how I talk. Grammar fun!
Aside from those past times, I enjoy making maps. not of real places.
I own a collection of silly hats. My 21st birthday gift to myself was an Iowan flag.
I like stories. Stories in games, stories in books, stories from people. All of it. Pretty sure that's why I'm a history major. Just never ask me names and dates. I am terrible with names and dates.
I tend to be quiet around people I don't know, but not so much around people I'm comfortable around.
Swear to god, the adorable gets to me. (see bit about cat pictures)
Serious note: I do take my beliefs seriously. I am a feminist and I do believe wanting equality falls under "Don't Be a Dick". So the rant i made wasn't exactly tongue-in-cheek. I feel it's basic human fucking decency.
Serious note over.
Long story short, My name is Dane, and I enjoy ridiculous things.
