I believe in the infinite potential of man; that we, as a species, can do pretty much anything we want, eventually.
Collecting titles - leg psych, PhD, etc., etc. Don't matter much in the end.
There's a diploma in Swedish massage somewhere with my name on it, and a bench in my house, but I don't get to practise nearly as often as I'd like.
Entertaining myself and others. Contributing to the fun around me is very important, for most definitions of fun, and by most means.
Movies/TV: Southpark (or The Matrix, if I'm in a bad mood) tells us where we are, Star Trek where to go, and V for Vendetta how to get there. Mofatt's Sherlock episodes for pure pleasure.
Music: Political Hip-Hop - Labyrint, mfl. Ska-P. Movie soundtracks.
Food: I make a mean tortellini di pesto with proscuitto, goats cheese and ruccola. (Sound awfully pretentious, but it is very nice and very easy)
Politics. Games. Play. People. Stories. The Trek.
