smbc, xkcd, abstruse goose... nuff said

I eat all of it.
1) My motorcycle Incitatus (Inky for short): She's a Frankenstein mid 80's BMW R bike. A bit long in the tooth and I'd miss her dearly if something were to happen.
2) A small brass statue of two bears humping... there's just something about it.
Economics: I am simultaneously fascinated and appalled at the audacity of their questions and the cleverness of their methods.
Statistics: it's amazing how, once you start solving problems in the real world, stats ends up being the most important tool for measuring how full of shit you are.
Sailing: I am determined to make the south pacific run between Mexico and Australia.
