I'm big on martial arts, movies, music, metaphysics, mayhem, megalomania ^_^ (j/k about the last two, really >.>).
As a final disclaimer: I don't believe a digitized compatibility test can determine everything or even anything. Love is strange and always new and it can happen between even the most unlikely of people. The possibilities are endless regardless of what the tests say.
For those wondering what my religion is, now that it's not Christianity...it's Deism, which isn't a religion but a philosophy on God. Perhaps if you are questioning your own beliefs we could have a discussion on what Deism entails as opposed to what religions present.
I am aspiring, utilitarian, and social
I guess you win some and lose some.
I do admit to liking The DaVinci Code to some degree.
As for nonfiction, I like Ideas and Opinions by Albert Einstein and I was inspired by numerous writings on quantum physics by figures such as Michio Kaku. Sun Tzu's The Art Of War was an excellent read as well.
B) The Matrix trilogy. There's so much to the trilogy that so many people don't see. Of course there's the mandatory movies from the Lord of the Rings series for their amazing production value.
I'll toss in Once Upon a Time In China and Fist of Legend. I'll also admit to liking (not loving) a few Disney Classics.
Also, Transformers was awesome! Optimus Prime reaffirmed his badass status by absolutely ganking Bonecrusher.
I also enjoyed The Terminal and a few chick flicks.
Thank You For Smoking was also a very clever piece.
Wall-E is just too cute not for me to include.
V For Vendetta was executed quite well.

I really have no idea how long my music list can extend for...suffice to say I can appreciate a lot of music, though my tastes tend to have certain focuses. Mostly situated upon vocal abilities and lyricism. A good beat and impressive instrumentals don't hurt either.
I've decided to stop updating the music list from here on. Too many new artists keep getting added and I probably should trim some off. Let's just say I like great vocalists and we'll see how that goes.
D) Erm...I like to eat...a lot. >.>
Sushi, steak, ooh there was that one lobster pasta (Olive Garden discontinued it v.v) I had...and the lobster wrap I had in Boston...mmmmm...and the Philly Cheese steak that I got in Philly, oh and I like my eggs over easy yup yup and bacon and hash browns mmm and OOOH Wendy's Bacon Mushroom Melt...
I've become a bit of a beer connoisseur lately as well.
E) Games: I'm a chess player, but that's not exactly what I'm getting at with this section.
Some day I would like to see computer and video games games hailed as a legitimate form of storytelling media enough that people could have conversations about them without being branded nerds/geeks or addicts or "weeaboos" or some other derogatory label. As of now though, few games can tickle the brain without being an appeal to a niche market. For me, I am a fan of the Shin Megami Tensei style of games, including the Persona series. The Final Fantasy series has had its bright moments every so often. Tekken and Soul Calibur are great as fighters and I'd prefer to see action games like Onimusha with the same technical combat system that a fighter would have. Games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill are more fun when I get to watch people play, mainly cause I'm a scaredy cat. StarCraft was definitely a revolutionary title for me. Guild Wars was innovative. ACE Online (formerly Space Cowboy Online) was a grand mainstay of mine and taught me many lessons in game design, both for its good and bad points.
Prominent figures that figure into the gaming world for me: Peter Molyneux may be a visionary, but he's got poor execution. Will Wright is a true pioneer. Shigeru Miyamoto is king.
My tools (mostly flash drives >.>)
Hmm...my best answer to this is that I spend a lot of time
thinking about the future: my future, the future of our world... I
worry about such things and dream about how it could be grand or
shudder how badly it could turn out and how I could contribute. I
think about family and someday starting my own and how my current
family is going to maintain.
This used to be a different topic...I think it was a good one so
I'll leave the response here.
"Who would you trade brains with for a day?"
Albert Einstein - There is no one I admire more.
Bruce Lee comes in at a close second.
There's there's a whole long list of strategists, philosophers, writers, leaders, physicists, and whatnot. I like my own brain but still it would be nice to know how those greats of history thought.
Just kidding, please don't kill me (unless you're a sorry-ass skinhead white supremacist/nationalist...in that case I invite you to try cause I'd love to kick you from here to ancient China).
Okay, what the hell, I might as well...
I think I have a Messiah Complex and I'm pretty sure it's destroying me.
Or if you need advice or just someone to pour out your frustrations on.
You can IM me on AIM at EterniaDragon, ytfROB also works on AIM, Yahoo!, Windows Live Messenger (with ytfROB@hotmail.com), but not ICQ (I don't use that much anymore anyways and I've lost my login info). BaiginLong on Skype. Why the hell am I on MySpace? I don't use it that often but I've finally been forced to be more active on it...albeit marginally. Wait, no I haven't.
For those of you who want to make me pay attention to my MySpace (though I probably won't), here it is.
Holy smokes! I finally joined Facebook too!
