I recently lost a camera drone in a tree. If you would like to help me get a camera drone out of a tree, that would be cool.
I go to the Central Park petting zoo kind of a lot. More than average.
I won money on Cash Cab.
I used to get in a lot of reddit arguments about transgender rights, gender equality, and racial bias. "Maybe Hispanics are just worse with money and that's why they can't get loans, you ever think of that?" was something someone said to me, someone without exploding from the buildup of chronic redneckery.

A new Russian place opened up in my neighborhood and holy hell, who knew stroganoff could be so divine? I tend to love on anything with some heat to it-- Ethiopian, Thai, curries of all shapes. If you don't want your pickle, I will take it.
A bed. I don't mean the whole mattress-pillows-sheets ensemble; I mean the actual frame. Is there anything sadder than a mattress on the floor? Sarah McLachlan puppy commercials notwithstanding.
Peeling the film off a new piece of electronics.
When not nitpicking movies, I get in a lot of heated discussions about how just because gender inequality and racial bias are no longer blatantly displayed by high-profile bigots, that does not mean they have vanished. I recently took a hiatus from reddit after hearing that: a) women are not being discriminated against in the tech industry because they don't even WANT computers made for ladies anyway, and b) white people do not have any more special privilege than blacks because they, too, go to jail.
If anyone has any tips on how to stay positive against wave after wave of that kind of ignorance, I'm all ears.
...you've ever wondered what it feels like to be bitten by a parrot.
...looking at a ridiculous amount of nerdy tattoos appeals to you. (6/15/15: Recently added Scott Pilgrim head, which brings the total up to 7 and a sleeve)
...you find comic-book stores almost painfully full of promise.
You shouldn't if...
...you've ever said, "I don't watch television." Cutting yourself off from such an enormous source of culture, education, and entertainment is not commendable. It's kind of depressing.
