I dislike: reality TV, Android phones, cilantro, overlarge pickup trucks, and the Myers-Briggs personality test (don't get me fucking started).
My two annual charitable contributions are to a Manatee rescue organization and the ACLU.
My favorite patients to get at my job (paramedic) are older folks who lived through WWII and will tell me about it, and kids (I worked in the pediatric ER/trauma-center before I got on the ambulance).
Some of my heros are Richard Feynman, Atul Gawande, Carl Sagan, Kurt Vonnegut, Urdnot Wrex, and Max (from Where The Wild Things Are).
Fair warning: Don't ever bring up the Oxford comma when I've been drinking.
