My self-summary
Hi there! I'm Ian, a mathematics senior at ASU (most likely going into statistics). I've lived in the valley most of my life. As such, I hope to move someplace not so hot (if I get into grad schools *crosses fingers*) I'm a bit of a nerd/geek (anime, manga, video games, science), but I'm also game for camping, nature walks/hiking, bike riding, seeing good movies, visiting museums and zoos, and seeing live music.

I'm also an ISTP, if that means anything to you.

Also, just to let you know off the bat, I'm being treated for depression, so education and work have taken a backseat to my mental health care. So, for the most part, I'll just be looking for pen pals until I'm in a better place.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a super senior at ASU :D It's funny how life'll hit ya upside the head and make you change your mind about your career path. What is it now? Prooooobably statistics. Probably.

And yeah, I just got that.

I’m really good at
making sick as hell jokes. It helps pass the long hours with my nose in a textbook. I'm also really good at petting my cat. I can also grill a mean steak. I'll also kick your ass at Smite. No joke.

I guess I'm also good at making people not reply to messages <:S

That, or attracting the attention of people living hundreds of miles away.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice usually gets me noticed. If we meet you'll see. I also wear flip flops during winter when it's raining.

For this profile, you might notice that it's turning into a library of web sites :S Ah well, peruse at your leisure

I just noticed that I put "computer" for numbers 3 and 6. Cool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the universe, the Big Bang, evolution, whether or not there is a reason to the existence of the universe, sound tax/environmental/international policies, internet memes...

-‎'Hertz did not realize the practical importance of his experiments. He stated that,

"It's of no use whatsoever[...] this is just an experiment that proves Maestro Maxwell was right - we just have these mysterious electromagnetic waves that we cannot see with the naked eye. But they are there." '
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Hertz#cite_note-huji-3

So remember, kids, science doesn't need application, and even if your research did have applications, you may not know it. Keep discovering for discovering's sake!-

Okay, so I'm pretty liberal and like "big government" things like universal health care, blah blah blah, but after seeing this, yeah, I suppose privatizing certain things, like space exploration, is a good idea.

So, to make my profile have 1000 words, here is the text from the wikipedia article on archaea (single celled organisms).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaea
The Archaea (/ɑrˈkiːə/ ( listen) ar-KEE-ə) are a group of single-celled microorganisms. A single individual or species from this domain is called an archaeon (sometimes spelled "archeon"). They have no cell nucleus or any other organelles within their cells. In the past they were viewed as an unusual group of bacteria and named archaebacteria but since the Archaea have an independent evolutionary history and show many differences in their biochemistry from other forms of life, they are now classified as a separate domain in the three-domain system. In this system the three main branches of evolutionary descent are the Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya. Archaea are further divided into four recognized phyla, but many more phyla may exist. Of these groups the Crenarchaeota and the Euryarchaeota are most intensively studied. Classifying the Archaea is still difficult, since the vast majority have never been studied in the laboratory and have only been detected by analysis of their nucleic acids in samples from the environment. Although archaea have, in the past, been classed with bacteria as prokaryotes (or Kingdom Monera), this classification has been described as outdated, since it fails to distinguish among the three phylogenetically distinct domains of life.[1]

Generally, archaea and bacteria are quite similar in size and shape, although a few archaea have very unusual shapes, such as the flat and square-shaped cells of Haloquadra walsbyi. Despite this visual similarity to bacteria, archaea possess genes and several metabolic pathways that are more closely related to those of eukaryotes: notably the enzymes involved in transcription and translation. Other aspects of archaean biochemistry are unique, such as their reliance on ether lipids in their cell membranes. The archaea exploit a much greater variety of sources of energy than eukaryotes: ranging from familiar organic compounds such as sugars, to using ammonia, metal ions or even hydrogen gas as nutrients. Salt-tolerant archaea (the Halobacteria) use sunlight as a source of energy, and other species of archaea fix carbon; however, unlike plants and cyanobacteria, no species of archaea is known to do both. Archaea reproduce asexually and divide by binary fission, fragmentation, or budding; in contrast to bacteria and eukaryotes, no species of archaea are known that form spores.

Initially, archaea were seen as extremophiles that lived in harsh environments, such as hot springs and salt lakes, but they have since been found in a broad range of habitats, such as soils, oceans, and marshlands. Archaea are particularly numerous in the oceans, and the archaea in plankton may be one of the most abundant groups of organisms on the planet. Archaea are now recognized as a major part of life on Earth and may play an important role in both the carbon cycle and nitrogen cycle. No clear examples of archaeal pathogens or parasites are known, but they are often mutualists or commensals. One example are the methanogenic archaea that inhabit the gut of humans and ruminants, where they are present in vast numbers and aid in the digestion of food. Archaea have some importance in technology, with methanogens used to produce biogas and as part of sewage treatment, and enzymes from extremophile archaea that can resist high temperatures and organic solvents are exploited in biotechnology.
