Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Apparently I'm supposed to write a fucking book in this
space.....I'll just copy and paste something.
Boric acid was first prepared by Wilhelm Homberg (1652-1715) from
borax, by the action of mineral acids, and was given the name sal
sedativum Hombergi ("sedative salt of Homberg"). The presence of
boric acid or its salts has been noted in sea-water. It is also
said to exist in plants and especially in almost all fruits (A. H.
Allen, Analyst, 1904, 301). The free acid is found native in
certain volcanic districts such as Tuscany, the Lipari Islands and
Nevada, issuing mixed with steam from fissures in the ground; it is
also found as a constituent of many minerals (borax, boracite,
boronatrocaicite and colemanite).Boric acid is soluble in boiling
water. When heated above 170°C it dehydrates, forming metaboric
acid HBO2. Metaboric acid is a white, cubic crystalline solid and
is only slightly soluble in water. It melts at about 236°C, and
when heated above about 300°C further dehydrates, forming
tetraboric acid or pyroboric acid, H2B4O7. Boric acid can refer to
any of these compounds. Further heating leads to boron
Boric acid does not dissociate in aqueous solution, but is acidic
due to its interaction with water molecules:
B(OH)3 + H2O ⇌ B(OH)4− + H+
Ka = 5.8x10−10 mol/l; pKa = 9.24.
Polyborate anions are formed at pH 7–10 if the boron concentration
is higher than about 0.025 mol/L. The best known of these is the
tetraborate ion, found in the mineral borax:
4B(OH)4− + 2H+ ⇌ B4O72− + 9H2O
I'm bored. So very bored. Yep, bored. I enjoy non-boring things
like movies and live music. Unless it's a boring movie or a boring
band, and then I don't really enjoy it.
I am Insomniac, nerdy, and I need a haircut
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fighting heredity, one day at a time. Being angry. Caffeinating.
Balding. Falling off of roofs. Breaking ribs. Missing my dear
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Jeez, I dunno. Smoking? Making coffee
? Playing video games poorly? I
used to be really good at drinking too much, but I had to stop.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My cheery disposition. My ears(they stick out a tad). My lack of a
moustache. The fact that my typical footwear
bears a striking resemblance

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - George R.R. Martin
though he's probably gonna croak before he finishes "A Song of Ice
and Fire") Speaking of GRRM, I'm torn by his new popularity. I
mean, good for him that he's finally getting his due, and that it's
gotten a few people to actually pick up a book(or
e-book...whatever). But I'm also sick of people who watched the
latest season on HBO and are complaining about having to wait "a
whole year to see what happens next", but apparently not enough to
crack a copy. Seriously, fuck you
. Try waiting 5(and then 6)
fucking years between books. "Books are expensive"...fine, I'll
loan you my copies. "Books are a pain in the ass...theyre big and
"...fine, I have the
e-versions, in 3 convenient formats. "I have trouble reading, my
mind wanders"...fine, I also have audio versions. But no, they just
want to sit back and have the story poured into their heads. Enjoy
your incomplete version, assholes. Biographies. The Hardy
Movies - Blazing Saddles. The Toy. Adam-12. The Last Detail. The IT
Music - Not country. Lately, "Jesus Christ Superstar" has been
stuck in my head. MOTO. The Clorox Girls.
Food - No hummus, please.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The past. I have a lot of regrets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I guess I'm supposed to say "Out at some douchey fucking bar,
watching some fucking shitband" or some happy horseshit like that,
but I'd be lying if I said that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sigh....I STILL have a huge crush on Liz Phair. There, I said it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Ummm.....how about this: You SHOULDN'T message me if: You fancy the
lads who wear girl-pants. You wear sandals with socks. You own a
pair of crocs. You dig popped collars. You don't find Pedobear
funny. You're a preachy vegan. You have a grapefruit
shooter on your car.
Ya know what? You prolly just shouldn't message me.
And when the fuck did "message" become a verb?
