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 also like history, leaning towards armed conflicts. Not because of the killing, but because of the technologies that were developed and used. WWII is my favorite bit and I am fascinated with the carrier war in the Pacific.
English was not my best class, primarily because I couldn't generate enough filler material to meet paper length requirements. (Come on, if I've made finished my argument, and my argument is sound, why do I need to obfuscate my points just to add two pages of length?) Despite that, I know enough to be able to go all grammar nazi on things that I look at. So, I'll be distracted from the content of any message by how it is presented.
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. I'm also willing to try pretty much anything once, as long as I have the right company to prod me.
