Now I work in the biotech 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.
This, unfortunately, doesn't translate that well on the internet (or life), but I try my best :)
I can tell what a cloth is made of just by touching it.
Also, Scrabble. Bring it.
I also love late night coffee. Really, I love any kind of coffee and usually have 4-5 cups a day.
people that say blowhard statements like "good for you", "is that right?", "pat yourself on the back", "how so?", "define normal", "everything happens for a reason". Or "it's for a good cause" as opposed to what? 10K for the Hitler youth?
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.
when you're in line at the grocery store, should you put that plastic barrier on the conveyor belt after you put your food on it or is it up to the next person in line to place it before they put their food on the belt?
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?

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
