Hi. This is the part where I'm supposed to tell you some stuff about me. Let's think about this for a moment. I don't know you, probably never will, so I'm particularly inclined to divulge a lot of personal info. I'll let you have a little bit.

I'm a college student with an interest in mathematics, history, and political science. I'm a Midwesterner, and I rather like it here. The east coast is a dump (too many goddamn hippies), and don't even get me started on the west coast. I like cold weather and can be rendered effectively non-functional by temperatures over 85 degrees.

Politically, I'm a die hard believer in Chicago School capitalism. The ideology I fall closest to is classical liberalism (think of it as lite libertarianism). I'm generally against the regulation of individual rights (some issues are more complex); I let you hippies have you drugs, so stop trying to take my guns.

Philosophically/religiously, I'm a deistic Protestant and believer in compatibilistic determinism. For those of you who've never heard that term, it means that I don't hold determinism (in the more general philosophical sense, not just religious) to be mutually exclusive with free will.

"Conformity and rebellion... both are simple-minded--they are only for people who cannot cope with contradiction and ambiguity."-Neal Stephenson

"There are no dangerous weapons, only dangerous men."-Robert A. Heinlein

"Anyone who clings to the historically untrue - and thoroughly immoral - doctrine that 'violence never solves anything' I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee."-Robert A. Heinlein

"Those damn commie bastards hate everything we stand for: freedom, liberty, apple pie... did I say freedom?"-Red Alert 3
