My self-summary
Odds are you're visiting my profile due to some sort of random message I sent you, in which case past me also greets you. If you didn't come to my profile because of a message, are you some sort of creepy stalker? If you are, please feel free to send an essay regarding your motivation, techniques and procedures so this can be aggregated into a copra of data for later analysis.

I'm honest and I enjoy arguing, both serious character flaws I know, but they make life more fun. So, I plan on keeping them for the time being. I'm an incredible cynic, but so far it's been an asset for me so I plan on staying that way.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in the Information Security field and getting into frequent political and philosophical debates.
I’m really good at
Amusing myself, the internet makes it so damn easy these days.
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I'm a geek.

and on here:

The fact I IMed you because I was bored.

Six things I could never do without
1. A distraction
2. Internet
3. Amusement
4. Imagination
5. Food
6. A distraction
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things of no great importance. Here are some examples:

1. Apparently the root for octopus is actually Greek so the plural should technically be octopuses. Also the fact that octopuses have a lifespan of only a few years at most and produce hundreds of offspring every generation would seem to make them ideal candidates for selective breeding as part of an intelligence experiment. The one major downside is the high cost to keep them alive, which is where rats win again.

2. Given the fact that it's already been established that the internal gut load of bacteria that most people possess can greatly affect vitamin and calorie absorption how long it will take for a new breed of plastic surgeons to show up who don't just do tummy tucks but also perform gut load replacements.

3. The sheer audacity of some of the New Age scams out there, and what these teach us all about proper sales techniques.

4. Given the fact that polar bears and grizzly bears can interbreed if climate change just result in the two species merging.

5. As technology acts as a force multiplier and computers allow us to multiply the effects of skilled labor thousands of fold, what implications will this have on the middle class as a whole?
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping or having a good time doing something else... what I like sleeping. It's not my fault you're one of those unfortunate folks who never figured out how to enjoy it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The fact that I'm not hitting on you. I'm a crazy hermit, and I'm sure my pictures of the rest of my profile prove it. :)

Also that I sort of hate the term, "Big Data". While some problems require non-standard solutions the term "Big Data" is so bloated it's become nearly meaningless so it is almost always used incorrectly.
You should message me if
You want to spam someone else instead of getting spammed yourself? Either that or if you want to share an amusing story or hear a schadenfreude inducing story.
The two of us
