* Playing/writing music - my current band is called Silhavey (http://silhavey.com).
* Working with computers - I am the guy everyone always begs to fix their computer (you have no idea how much porn I accidentally find on people's computers). I am a professional programmer!
* Math - published author in the field of computer science (Erdos #4).
* Not being a huge nerd all the time - OK, I am obviously a huge nerd, but there's a lot more to life than that.
* Cooking - I can make a braised short rib that would make Morrissey renounce veganism.
* Debate - I love arguing politics and public policy, but I'm not stupid enough to bore people that don't give a shit or bring up politics when inappropriate
* Japanese - I spent two years working in Japan (in IT) and gained a conversational level of proficiency.
I literally have a bookshelf full of books I haven't read yet. I am kind of a bibliophile: I have a nook, but I generally buy the book and just pirate the e-book for easy reading at night.
