If you know anyone in Egypt, pass to them:
Egypt : To bypass gov. blocking of website names, use numerical IP addresses:

soak rags in lemon juice and wear on face! It alleviates effect of tear gas
To protestors- Leave artifacts, museums, ALL buildings alone if you must use violence. There is nothing to be gained in destrying beauty. Only attack if you're attacked first.
HI. I love history and reading and was always the "old farty" or geeky one in school. Don't look at the age or sex or race on my profile- it will only mislead you about who I truly am. I am mature yet goofy. Mature meaning I don't make reality-show based remarks about people based on age or sex or such, and am always working and keeping useful. I am not some kind of conservative Christian, but I am a bit old fashioned and I don't like the callousness and shallowness of modern society. Doesn't mean I can't have fun, though!
I don't tell anyone my age or stuff like that, so don't ask! You won't find out until I decide! I like people to know me for myself first.
I am a SELF EMPLOYED book dealer, with my father, also trying my hand at writing (mostly philosophy, but fiction as well).
As much as I like this site, I don't think it really does the users justice in the way it matches people up or compares their profiles- it always seems as if the people they say you are most like are not like you, but the people you are least like are not so bad.
I am very intersted in finding a travel buddy or partner who likes to travel and am very interested in finding a way to get a book published, even if by a very small company. I hate to use other people to get the lifestyle I want but would like to humbly request that education and culture-loving travelers and intellectual bookworms message me.
I am intelligent, creative, and very friendly
I hate those indie "open-minded"hippie guys with the beards and artsy hats who talk about "philosophical" things and always vote Democrat- i.e. those people who want to be "different, just like everyone else". The kind you find crawling around Thayer St. I also dislike people who are very drab and grey and are always saying "Life is suffering..." (WHOSE life?). This person is often identical with the first.
As for politics:
I don't really
like Barack Obama...GASP. Ron Paul is awesome
"Rahm Emanuel is the biggest d*****bag that ever lived. He is a walking talking piece of horse sh** and he deserves to be ****ed with a wine bottle." Okay, so maybe I'm only quoting a YouTube user, but still, I mean, come ON!
