Now I work in the medical device industry.
My name as defined by Urban Dictionary:
A form of South African slang. Used to express joy or satisfaction at something or someone
Guy 1: Hey man, how is everything with work?
Guy 2: Everything is Luka.
Also, Scrabble. Bring it.
Also, the soft, inviting presence of my beard.
I also love late night coffee. Really, I love any kind of coffee and usually have 4-5 cups a day.
what I should do if I'm sitting in the middle seat on a full subway car and most of the car empties, including one person next to me. Should I move to the empty seat? The person beside me might find it insulting. But if I stay where I am, s/he might wonder why I don't move one seat over and give us both more space.
how far away does a person have to be for me to not hold the door for them? If they're 15 meters away, see me going inside and holding the door, they'll usually pick up the pace so as to not inconvenience me. Well, then, what's the point of me holding the door for them in the first place if I'm making them run?
I also have a bucket list that I'm constantly amending, crossing things off when I achieve them and adding things when they come to me. The following is my current, but no doubt not permanent bucket list.

- Attend a tomato festival in Italy
- Attend the ketchup festival in Idaho

- Swim with dolphins and not be attacked by them
- Complete a zumba class
- Have my hands registered as weapons

- Swim with a manatee
- Spearhead something metaphorically
- Eat manatee meat
- Incite the Amish to violence

The semicolon intimidates me; I still use it, but have no idea if I'm doing it correctly.
"We are evolving every year, every decade. That’s a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels."
- Gary Goodyear, Canadian Minister of Science
Also, if you agree with this Stephen Fry quote:
“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."
"I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them."
- Andrew Bernard, The Office
