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.
and on here:
The fact I IMed you because I was bored.
Movies: Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Dogma, South Park the Movie, The Boondock Saints, The Princess Bride
Music: I don't listen to much music. I appreciate the ambiance that it can create, but I have never followed bands, musicians or songs. I know this is pretty strange, but for some reason music doesn't hold my interest.
Food: Indian, Italian, Junk Food, Seafood, Sushi
TV: Anime, Avatar, Babylon 5, How I Met Your Mother, Kitchen Nightmares (UK), Mad Men, Master Chef, Penn and Teller Bullshit, The Simpsons
Manga: Claymore, Eyeshield 21, Kekkaishi, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, One Piece, Soul Eater, Tower of God and too many others to go through
Also, webcomics and XKCD because it always deserves special mention
6. A distraction
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?
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.
