I am a knowledge fiend. The day you stop learning is the day you die. If I hear about something that I want to learn more about, I will look it up on google or wikipedia. So much time gets lost looking up one thing in wikipedia, opening up 3-4 related entries, and getting caught in a vicious cycle. The discovery channel is like candy to me and I must be careful to watch it in moderation.
I'm not into clubs or noisy bars. I prefer to drink with friends in a quiet setting where we can have a good time together - usually with a couple board games from my decent-sized and growing collection. I'm also willing to try pretty much anything once, as long as I have the right company to prod me.
Movies: Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Serenity. I'm actually fairly behind on current movies as I prefer watching movies at home instead of in a theater.
Music: Classical, jazz, rock, techno, almost anything besides rap, music without lyrics (words I'm reading and words I hear tend to get jumbled together, and I rarely am just listening to music). Favorite artists include Maynard Ferguson, Chuck Mangione, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, and The Brian Setzer Orchestra.
Food: Pizza, Mexican, Chinese, steak, chicken, strawberries (especially chocolate-covered!), almost anything. I love food and I consider myself to be a decent cook.
TV Shows: Simpsons, South Park, Lost, Heroes, Stargate, superhero cartoons (Batman:TAS, Superman:TAS, Justice League, Batman Beyond), Firefly, Mythbusters, Invader Zim, Game of Thrones, The Office, The Walking Dead, random things on Discovery, the History Channel, or Food Network.

- You think we have some things in common.
- You can say more than "hello" at me (if I messaged you, I've put some thought into what I've said)
