Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
, and annoying
. If you do not
like people with any of these traits, I suggest you look at other,
, peoples' profiles.
Wow, there are people who actually read past the first line? Shiny!
I recently cleaned out a bunch of kruft that had accumulated here,
so you're stuck with the typical vacuous few sentences for now. The
real issue is that anything that would go here is redundant in view
of the other information on the profile, or would be obvious from a
few minutes of discussion. Be that as it may, here are a few things
you might want to know:
* I am among the most laid back people you will ever meet. This is
not always a good thing.
* My religious views are roughly described as modern
* My political views are roughly described as Libertarian. This
categorization is rougher than that of my religious views.
* My social views are roughly described as, "What
do you Care What Other People Think?"
...more will go here if anything else of utility and relevance
occurs to me.
I am clearly not creative, quite disinteresting, and likely to bore
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm about to start my final year of undergrad; I'm looking at
graduating with a Math/Physics/Philosophy triple, although I
typically call myself a "Mostly Math Major", as the other two are
just hobbies. After that comes grad school, and a general
trajectory towards academia... unless I get distracted by something
else interesting like a software startup
. Still no clue
about specialization within mathematics, but I expect that will be
decided by my thesis advisor anyway.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm also reasonably good at computer science
, bridge, chess, and random other
stuff (including being random

(d) As a college student, the primary factor in my choice of food
is price. This means most of my meals are pasta, cheese, and frozen
vegetables. I do, however, appreciate well made food, and I bake
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(1) My towel
, or at
least a sarong
should always know where your towel
(2) Duct tape
like the force; it holds the universe together, it binds the
universe. And it has a light side and a dark side.
something is broken either it can be fixed using duct tape
, or you should get rid of it.
If it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape
. If it doesn't move and it
should, use WD-40
(4) Plastic bags. Because occasionally you need that air- (or at
least water-) tight seal.
(5) and (6) are irrelevant (ie, I couldn't think of anything off
the top of my head and will probably change this later...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The emptiness of the universe. That's while I'm staring at a blank
screen trying to figure out how to start my next paper.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Actually, I'd be very interested in seeing a decent effort at a
proof that I exist on a typical Friday night. You may assume that,
if you can prove that I think, then I exist.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

something I'm not willing to admit here.
Go Russell's Paradox.
Of course, there is no paradox if we think of "private"ness as
being measurable on the continuum under the usual metric (or an
interval of the continuum if you believe privateness to be compact
and connected), and we take "most" to mean the supremum instead of
the maximum. In that case, the statement merely asserts that the
set of things I'm willing to admit here contains no maximizer of
the function mapping things to their privateness value. Of course,
this assumes that the things I'm willing to admit here forms a set,
but neither you nor I wants to get into category theory over this
