I have recently taken up, with varying levels of enthusiasm and commitment: soccer, tap dancing, rock climbing. I am terrible at all of them but I don't seem to mind. Except for when I kick the soccer ball in what I am later informed is the wrong direction; then I feel a little bad.
I like science and math. Like, kinda a lot. I'm more comfortable making no claim about something than making a claim that isn't backed up by some sort of rigorous analysis. Unfortunately rigorous analysis is a lot of work, and I am fairly lazy, so this means my opinion on a lot of things ends up being "I dunno, someone should probably gather more data about that!", or "What are we trying to optimize again?" I am a big hit at parties.
