I'm James. I write words and sometimes I say them with my face. Also, I'm totally off the market these days. I've been happily snapped up by the wonderful We_am_the_best. But I'm leaving most of my profile intact and here, even if it's largely just for posterity's sake these days.
I don't identify at all with the straight-edge movement, but you wouldn't know it from all the drugs and alcohol I don't take and sex I haven't tended to have in the past. It's not due to a puritanical moral philosophy, I'm just kinda lame. I've identified as heteroflexible since I first learned the word.
I'm a Bayesian, and I'm a real nerd for science and skepticism.
I can often be found bloggifying the interwebs at http://cubiksrube.wordpress.com/ , where I post about religion, atheism, science, skepticism, politics, feminism, and the like. I also twitter as @writerJames, if you're into that kind of kinky shit.
I'm frustratingly prone to anxiety and needless self-criticism in social situations and should probably be getting some help for that.
I'm politically confused, tend to be very small-l liberal, and find myself more persuaded by anarchism the more I read about it.
I was kind of a nerd at school, and studied maths for four years at University. My MENSA membership expired after A) I couldn't be bothered with the annual fees, and 2) I realised that the arguments about religion that filled the newsletter were identical to those going on everywhere else you look. I will fight you if you refuse to accept that zero point nine recurring equals one. I drink tea.
I've no idea whether penguins bounce. It's just something I came up with at short notice, when I was young and thought everything could be improved by making it kooky.
