I'm a Cell and/or Molecular Biologist by trade, and I love it.
I play video games, I love sci-fi and fantasy books, and read too many of them. I wish I had more local friends to play card games and boardgames with. I think comic books are sweet. I wish anime had higher standards, because the animation can be mind blowing, but generally isn't (props to FLCL). Same with the stories (props to FLCL, again)
I am a bleeding heart liberal, and am perfectly willing to argue with you about how amazing food stamps are, even if you disagree with how people use them, or why welfare is amazing. In fact, I'm a big proponent of a Guaranteed Minimum Income. Socialism is the best!
I love to cook for other people, but will sometimes forget to eat if I'm by myself. I am perfectly willing argue with you about the benefits of GMO crops, doubly so if you arguments 'against' GMO crops are actually arguments against pesticides, without understanding the difference between the two (there is a wide, and significant berth between round-up ready crop and every crop that is genetically modified). Especially when double blind studies show that people prefer the taste of non-'organic' crops to their inferior, non-genetically modified, counterparts.
I'm generally in an amazing mood, but sometimes I have my down days. Whatev.
Also, Ice Hockey is the best, and only good, sport. Go Penguins!
