Also, imagine this entire profile in the voice of Alec Baldwin.
I'm here to compare tests and match/enemy %s with my friends, many of whom are from SE++. I enjoy reading, playing video games, rockwall climbing, swing dance, college football, writing, and philosophy.
I'm a little shy with people I don't know, but I become very outgoing very fast the more I get to know people. I'm a good listener, and generally prefer to listen to what people have to say before I get to know them.
I am very opinionated about things and very stubborn. I am not afraid to speak my mind about things. I tend to be polarizing: the people who like me really like me, the people who don't really don't. But who cares about the latter group? They're not winners, like you and me. (NOTE: If not actually a winner please ignore this paragraph)
Yes I believe you're a winner. You don't have to believe in yourself, just believe in me who believes in you! (Also this one)
I always try my best in anything that I do. I refuse to give half-assed efforts. I firmly believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well. As a result, I tend to be competitive about a lot of things, and I love good competition. Occasionally I like to kick ass and chew bubble gum. However I have been without bubblegum for quite some time.
I love excuses to dress classy or wear a suit (given my career interests, I'd say that's a good thing).
Someone made me take one of those online Myers-Briggs tests. It said I was Mr. Darcy. I AM NOT MR. DARCY.
More recently, I graduated law school, passed the bar exam, and now am an attorney.
As for games, I'm also partial to the Phoenix Wright series (Edgeworth is my hero), Fire Emblem, Smash Bros., Super Mario RPG, and the Walking Dead.
Favorite movies include Snatch, Ocean's Eleven, Memento, Emperor's New Groove, Django, Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels, 300, Avengers, and Ironman. Was a big fan of Thor 2 as well.
Favorite television shows include Game of Thrones, Sherlock, the Venture Brothers, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Myth Busters, Archer, The Wire, and Burn Notice (the early seasons).
I have never once looked at a person's profile and thought "Oh man, they couldn't live without THAT? That's a dealbreaker" or "Oh man that is so cool they couldn't live without that AWESOME we should be best friends."
So I guess here's the dealbreaker bits: I need spelling and grammar to survive. I don't know how some people get by on food and oxygen but not communication! I die a little on the inside when I see a message "tbh i rotfl'd at ur wall hth"*
*Translation: "To be honest, I rolled on the floor laughing at your wall, hope this helps."
I also like to think up strategies. Doesn't matter for what, specifically. I just like to theorycraft about the best way to approach problems.
Oh, and whether to keep the beard or go clean shaven. The constant question of my life.
I'm probably hanging out with friends, playing smash brothers/poker or working. Saturdays I am either at a football game or watching a football game.
I just started playing Magic the Gathering with some buds on Sundays.
Also I said "meatball" instead of "b-ball" in the last section.
Finally, I have had Crohn's for about 16 years, which basically means I am a GI doc.
Now you know my terrible secret. Italics.
You want to talk about books, movies, games, college football, comic books, just about anything nerdy. I enjoy a good conversation.
You enjoy debating for fun. I'm willing to defend everything in this profile!
Oh, and if you know R+L=J ;0
But please note that I am extremely lackadaisical about everything. That's right. Lackadaisical.
Finally, if you want to see the photo evidence that I stood my gat dang GROUND against the nado that hit Tuscaloosa. Can't post that here for raisins. Oh and you want to date, or be coy about dating. I suppose that's natural for this site. Friends apply too!
