You're reading my profile! Glory be. That means one of thirteen things: I either said something you kind of liked, sort of hated or felt marginally strong about. Or, of course, you think my profile pic's super pretty. Which would worry me. . .
Either way, allow me to explain myself:
I'm a cocky, genuinely psychopathic, highly intelligent (but you already knew that) computer geek of a cynical, nihilistic, cat loving, fault-seeking generalist/conman.
I'm politically, economically, linguistically, religiously and ecologically incorrect. So sorry if I offended you somehow, but you might do quite well to simply get over yourself.
A friend once tumultuously aired the ill-thought-through conjecture that I'm narcissistic, but I think he was just in a mood. An online friend once kindly informed me of the debatable fact that I'm one of the few intellectuals on the internet, but I would say that it's a sin to use the words "Internet" and "Intellectual" in the same sentence, particularly in that fashion.
You may think I'm a self-important ass, and that's partly true. The main reasons, though, are to either a) Get a point across or b) Teach you something. Given that the latter is basically my profession, thankfully sans any official classrooms, that's gonna happen. I guarantee you that if you reread that sentence three times, "sans" will start to annoy you.
PROTIP: Instead resorting to old-fashioned good-natured screaming, as most charming folk do, first think about what I'm trying to communicate with my approach.
I dislike spoonfeeding.
Being the ass that I am, many people ask me whether the glass is half empty or half full, as if its condition makes a difference in their lives. Since I was eight, I've basically told them, "Neither. The glass partially contains water." You most-assuredly needed to know that.
To me, leisure reading consist of books such as Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Der Fuerher, War and Peace (Hell, yes), The Republic of Plato, Nineteen-Eighty-Four, Hypnotic Writing, Psychological Subtleties, Guerrilla Marketing and Multiple Streams of Income. That sort of thing. Oh, and Poor Man's James Bond. All bad for my sanity, I know, but oh-so very much better than vapid drivel such as Twilight.
I particularly enjoy subjects of inquiry along the lines of history, business, mathematics, most all things computer, psychology, magic (the performance art), law, assassinations and most other such splendidly geeky crap.
I'm a Canadian who was living externally in Tanzania, but as of not too long ago isn't.

When I started thinking way too much about Zombies: I played Time Splitters: Future Perfect. *les nostalgia*
What started my zombie fixation: I read WWZ, watched 28 Days/Weeks later, then RE: Extinction followed by the original Evil Dead and the newest Dawn of the Dead, all within one week. Them's got me hooked.
Favourite Zombie book: World War Z (moar like everyone's favourite, amirite?).
Favourite Zombie movie: Too hard to decide, and I doubt that you really care, anyway.
Favourite quote from any zombie movie:
"What about the government?"
"There is no government."
"Whah? No, there's ALWAYS a government. In a plane, in a bunker somewhere!"
"There IS NO GOVERNMENT!"
Don't ask why I like that; I just do. No, I don't troll Che Guevara stencils on bathroom stalls.
