Recently I've been buying padlocks to challenge myself, ever since I bought a lockpicking set at DEFCON (INFOSEC/hacking convention).
My general interests include reading, programming, figuring out how something works (and why I broke it), fixing things, learning about history, finding out what I do not know about the world, and scuba diving!
But that's not my only life goal, not by a long shot! The goal I am working on now is to find a girlfriend, someone who I can talk to, and laugh with. Someone who can help make my life, my world outlook, feel deep and meaningful.
Movies and Tv-shows.... hmmm.... so that's tricky. I have seen a LOT. Serenity, geeky as it is, is one of my favorite movies. Anything directed by Guy Richie. All of Mel Brookes movies. I am currently watching Elementary.
In terms of food: Sushi is awesome. So are steaks. Southern cooking, Indian food, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and a whole lot of "American" food.
But in the spirit of this section, I couldn't do without my two cats, annoying and anti-establishmentarianism as they are ("bite the power"). They are not comparable to my human friends, but they are important nonetheless.
I'd still need books, and a computer. Not to mention the internet. Oh, and of course, my family. We don't always 'like' each other, but we love each other, and apparently that's enough.
Oh, and also how to improve a technical project or piece of code that I'm stuck trying to fix.
I do often wonder how things work, and enjoy figuring new problems out. After all its an engineers job to know how to solve problems. When no problems are available, they'll create their own in a pinch.
