Okay, thats basically a lie because really thats just the plot summary to the movie space camp. But if you found it interesting, you should check it out.
I consider myself to be an atheist, but if you really pressed me about it, I'd have to admit I'm technically an agnostic, which I think most atheists are, but then I heard Stephen Colbert ask "Isn't an agnostic just an atheist without balls?" So I'm an atheist.
I went to bible college because I wanted to understand why I believed what I believed. I left two years later having lost my faith (and my virginity) and spent the next few years coming to terms with that. It was painful and frustrating, but going through that process made me a better human being.
After that I spent the rest of my twenties owning crappy cars, having fun, watching bad tv, and making admirable but ultimately meaningless contributions to my 401k. I also spent a fair amount of time dicking around on the internet, which actually ended up working out pretty well as I was somehow able to parlay that into a software developer job.
I dropped out of both high school and college so I honestly don't know how I even function in this world. But I do work in a technical role that requires a bachelors degree. I think I'm good at the autodidactic/jazz approach to learning and just awful at academic learning.
Anyway, I'm a very friendly and like-able person. I make friends fast; if I'm out on my lonesome I'll befriend another group no problem!
Books are great. I read, often. I don't particularly feel like listing out all of my favorites - just trust that I'm well-read.

I also flirt with this idea that maybe I can find a plot of land in the middle of nowhere, reject capitalism outright, and just go totally off the grid. Solar power, rain collectors, weekly delivery of "Heat and Serve" meals. Not for political or environmental reasons, which at least would have an air of nobility; but because of the challenge of it, and the pride of being independent and self sufficient. And frankly, I think it sounds cool.
That, or on a sailboat. Sailboat or cabin. 'Cabin' sounds like it would have spiders. Sailboat or yurt.
