I'd be very happy to do research for the rest of my life. Hopefully, after graduate school, a post-doc and eventually a position at a university would be wonderful.
Movies: Back to the Future, The Rocketeer, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, the Disney Animated Canon, the Marvel Cinematic Universe
TV Shows: Firefly, Agents of SHIELD, Cosmos (both original and new versions)
Board Games: Fortune and Glory, Arkham Horror, Red Dragon Inn, Lords of Waterdeep, Chez Geek, Chrononauts
In no particular order,
Material: A good book to read, a notebook and a pencil (for recording thoughts and observations), good food, coca-cola (unfortunately), and pants (to keep some decency... you'd be amazed how many don't put something along those lines).
Otherwise? : A clear sky to look at in the night, good friends, sarcasm, my education, my life experiences and adventures, and something always on the horizon (metaphorically speaking).
However, other than work, I like to think about philosophy, literature, the future, and planning my next adventure.
