I try to keep an open mind to new experiences. I'll try pretty much anything once. Fun fact- I went Ice Skating in Iraq on a business trip in grad school.
I really want to try wood turning, but my apartment complex would probably disapprove of that. I might have to wait until I have a garage before jumping into that one.
I've also made a few costumes (Dr Horrible and Fierce Deity Link from Majora's Mask) and have another one that is under way (Hint- it's from Stargate).
Movies- Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, The Lives of Others, Aladdin, LoTR, American Psycho, Roadhouse, anything with Jackie Chan, Run Lola Run, Amelie, foreign films (mostly German). According to Netflix I'm into dark cerebral foreign dramas but I like cheesy 80's action movies too.
Shows- Anything on PBS, Stargate, Firefly, Seinfeld, Futurama, Simpsons, Yu Yu Hakusho, Trigun, Game of Thrones, The Legend of Neil.
Music - I have a hard time with music. Sometimes I think my brain wasn't wired to remember music. If I had to throw out a few names though... Peter Fox, Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Third Eye Blind, Green Day, Lindsey Stirling . I guess Metal, Punk, Rock and stuff with violins.
A while ago I tried to get a grip on just how big IPv6 really is. So I was able to compute how many molecules of water it would take to use up the IPv6 addressing scheme assuming each molecule was giving a unique address, and then what that volume of water would look like.
Back of the napkin gives something like 4.87*10^15 L of water in Lake Michigan which should be around 1.63*10^41 molecules (55.51 mols per liter and factor in avogadro's number). IPv6 is only around 3.4*10^38 so it needs to be nearly 500x bigger to get the job done.
I hadn't been in a Museum in a long time- and they had Dinosaurs.
You want to grab brunch at Heidelberg Haus - Weisswurst and Bienenstich for desert is my goto. So good.
You want to play duck hunt (or some other NES games). I still have a tube TV around specifically for duck hunt.
