I am a linguist and I love learning more everyday. I think it's infinitely easier to understand other peoples culture through their language. Go to Germany and speak German with a heavy American accent. Just the fact that you are willing to learn another language as an American instead of being a xenophobic prick will land you plenty of awesome friends. Also lots of free booze. I hear this does not work well in Paris.
I like to keep an open mind on most things but not so open my brain falls out. This basically means I respect boundaries of peoples beliefs. I however laugh at people who think gravity is a theory and is therefore arguably non existent. I will also just stare at you if you tell me about how Elvis is haunting your stairwell or 9/11 was an inside job.
My name is Paul, my fathers name is Paul, and likewise with his Father for four generations total. I was told we were too poor to afford a new name when I was born. On top of that I don't even have a middle name. I got shafted.
If the mood hits me I can dance really, really, really terribly. Unless I am in Europe. They seem to think I can dance there.
Also I go watch the Ravens play smashmouth football a lot.
I can rock most people at Words with Friends.
Being on time unless it's a party. Nobody shows up on time for parties.
I like a lot of movies. Cohen Brothers, Wes Anderson, anything with Daniel Day Lewis. Lost in Translation, A Knight's Tale, and The Life Aquatic top my list.
HBO has the best shows. Pretty much anything on that channel. Running Man is great and if America can assemble a cast with half as much chemistry, they will have the next big thing. Archer!
My music tasted are all over the place. Gorillaz, David Bowie, Deichkind, Seeed, NIN, Ludacris, The Seatbelts, The Pillows, Shiina Ringo.
I eat anything that tastes good save seafood. I am not afraid to try most things. I love foreign foods of all types.

Sweet sweet Freedom! Oh wait...I am about 100 yards out in the middle of the damn Great Barrier Reef. I am terrified of fish let alone all the other myriad sea creatures that Australia is known for losing the occasional life to. So here I am a human buoy in the dusk of an Australian evening just bobbing up and down with no clue how to get back to shore.
Luckily it only took fifteen minutes for them to find me via jet ski.
So yeah, fuck Dolphins.
You realize there is more to the world than your own perspective.
If you know the originator of the phrase "Rock over London! Rock on Chicago!"
