“Et on s'est tellemont assojetti, en la derničre, ŕ certaines rčgles et ŕ certains chiffres, qu'on en a fait un art confus et obscur, qui embarrasse l'esprit, qu lieu d'une science qui le cultive.”Translation “And one is so subjected, in the latter, to certain rules and to certain symbols that one has made of it a confused and obscure art that encumbers the mind, instead of a science that cultivates it.” - Rene Descartes, Discourse on Method* Although he's talking about math here, he might as well talk about philosophy...
To see a world in a grain of sand And a heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And eternity in an hour - William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

If the backlog* Read: my first post here, in AGoG's signup thread, is to be believed, I was linked to This Very Wiki (from Battle for Wesnoth's forums, quite possibly from this post ) sometime in November 2010 and became Known shortly afterwards.

I was shipped multiple times:
Pieguy of the PPCshipped me and ShatteredSanity of the same for the 2012 annual PPC Board Shipfest.
Himochi Is Awesome of the same shipped me and AnnaBee (of the same) for the same Shipfest. Most of the things she noted are quite true.
Phobos of the same shipped me with Makari for the 2013 annual PPC Board Shipfest, also featuring Sergio Turbo, Tray-Gnome, Ivan the Not-so-Terrible, and doctorlit.
Motor Mouth: Sometimes, especially if the subject is complicated and/or obscure.
Movie Making Mess: My Cinema movies all ended up as this, unfortunately. In the last one, one filming day was cancelled eleven times, six because of the rain and the rest because of the incompetence of the rest of the team.
Younger Than They Look: Take my word on it. People tend to think that I'm ten years older than my true age. Happens less and less though, since it's kinda hard to mistake the age of a soldier here in Israel.

“There are stars above me, and the cherry trees blossom. The garden is still, and completely quiet save for my steps and the sound of my breathing. I walk through the garden till I reach a door; I open it and stare into the very edge of infinity.”
