I sat in a cube for a long time - a stifling, drab, and unimaginative prison. One day I had had enough and planned my escape. I used what was available around the office and I ended up making a paper airplane to use as a distraction and an old fax machine to knock out one of the guards. I pulled off my daring escape at 2 in the afternoon, never to return. I'm not doing that ever again. I split my time between running two websites, school, and research. Specifically as applied to artificial intelligence.
I'm a cinephile. I programmed a major film festival in Colorado a couple of years ago. I won't be doing that again because I got into a fist fight. I also taught last semester which was incredibly fun, but they're not letting me do that again.
I love to cook and eat somewhat healthy.
Tolle is my spiritual kung-fu. I won't kill things but I eat meat. My love language is touch. I value loyalty.
Two of my favorite quotes: Bukowski - "It's not that I don't like people, I just fell better when they're not around." McCarthy - "McCarthyism is Americanism with it's sleeves rolled." Eat shit pinkos.
I love art and wish I could draw... But alas, I am only creative with words. I also do not drink or do drugs.

.. wishing I had more time to read things that aren't textbooks.
