Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So yeah, the name Helios was taken, so HeliosWasTaken seemed like a
nice alternative. It's because I have this thing for suns.
You see.. I'm sure as a kid everyone fantasized about running his
or her country. Well my fantasy political party was always called
Nova and it stood for intellect, education, justice and things like
that - a bright spot in the darkness, an all-engulfing guiding
light that purged people of their ugly human qualities. I like Nova
better than Helios, because it is more dynamic, you know, because
of the explosion thing.
I myself am less explosive in nature, so I guess I'm closer to a
sun than supernovae, but even at least I'm a mere lava lamp
peacefully going about its own lava-lampish business on your night
It's a fitting comparison, actually. I prefer reading an
interesting article to going to a bar or club or most of the stuff

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I'm not busy dealing with my imaginary citizens in Nova Land I
work for an international, big and blue IT company. I work with
resource planning systems, UNIX
systems and people all around the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, there are a lot of things. I'm really good at extracting
information out of the internet, solving problems, learning things,
practicing empathy. I have a strong grip on reality and a strong
sense of justice. At least my imaginary citizens never insisted the
opposite, how could they, it's unconstitutional after all.
Fun fact: I learned English by myself. I'm not too proud of it
though, because it's pretty flawed.
Fun fact2: I have a Mensa
that only one in many thousand humans
possess. It's pretty cool, but it does make you a little lonely and
people don't really give a damn about it.. that's where an
imaginary nation electing you their leader come in!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like smalltalk and I don't like it when my words are being
ignored or interrupted.
I do like to speak and I speak with enthusiasm when the words I
want to make heard are words of admiration and love, or when they
are intended to point the way towards reality lane.
I do joke around an awful lot and make fun of everything.
I don't like it when people are wrong about something. I usually
correct them if it passes a cost/benefit check.
