When I'm not teaching/studying I spend my time biking, rock climbing, cooking, and camping.
I also seem to be decent at keeping old cars running. It's become a bit of a hobby.
I love to watch documentaries over anything. Actual movies might include Requiem for a Dream, Fight Club, The Insider, Dr. Strangelove, anything that was ever shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and anything by the Coen Brothers.
TV: Daily Show, Breaking Bad, X-Files, Battlestar Galactica, Twilight Zone, Frontline, Sherlock, rewatching Cosmos
Music: Boards of Canada, Lamb, Styrofoam, Massive Attack, Tuatara, FC Kahuna, Zero 7, Nine Inch Nails
I'll eat just about anything, but I'm a big fan of Thai and Mexican food. Lately I've been on a kick of smoking meat and making pecan pies.
Health care reform, the government shutdown, the Higgs Boson, cycling, the financial crisis, the impending collision of the Andromeda galaxy and the Milky Way, the evolution/creationism "debate," rock climbing, camping, public perception of statistics, the most recent episode of Frontline, or any related topic.
