I like this graduation speech: http://bit.ly/uHdo1, I felt the Guinness Book of World Records showed poor judgment when it featured the world's most litigious man without considering the consequences (http://bit.ly/DrztV), and I like ending sentences with links to supporting evidence (http://bit.ly/cS5YEO).
I find brains and fitness/athleticism very attractive (tastes which would make for exhaustion and disappointment if I were a zombie). Make-up is a turn-off, not for any particular reason, just a physical taste. I'm a little too likely to trip over my untied shoes to call myself athletic, but I'm in shape and do crossfit or play something almost every day.
On an unrelated note, I hope my obituary is this exciting:
Recently finished: On Chesil Beach, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. The Fly Swatter (a biography of the economic historian Alexander Gerschenkron - he used to challenge his Grandson to read passages from history books in under 2 minutes, yell out time splits as he was reading, and then quiz him on the contents - his grandson wrote the biography), Foucault's Pendulum, Slaughterhouse Five.
Some books I like (these were my favorite books when I was a senior in high school and since then I haven't bothered to reconsider what my favorite books might be now):
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Foundation trilogy, Dune, Ender's Game, How The Mind Works, and Up Your Score: The Underground Guide to the SATs (2003-2004 edition).
My favorite TV shows are The Wire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under (especially the final episode), Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, the Daily Show and Colbert Report, and the first three seasons of The Office (and if this were 10 years ago Seinfeld and The Simpsons).
I used to have a pretty neat math problem here and the time series evidence suggested that it: a) increased unsolicited messages and b) had no effect on response probability for messages I sent. But time series evidence can be misleading and I'm happy to chat even if you have no inclination to do a math problem.
