15th level Australian geek with 18 ranks in Knowledge (Geekery). If you got that, you at least possess a fraction of my geekiness.

I'm prone to pointing an invisible gun at TV screens with a cry of "[[{{Warhammer40000}} Heresy begets termination]]" and remarking that [[SummerHeightsHigh Chris Lilley]] will be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

If you read "[[BrainBleach I didn't need that]]" anywhere...sorry, that's probably me.

Philosophically, I am an atheist with slight NayTheist tendencies; politically, I am Vaguely Left; sexually, I'm a straight CelibateHero (although I would sleep with Kamina given a chance.) I'm also TheNicknamer to a degree.

Alignment-wise, I am LawfulGood; in ''MagicTheGathering'' terms, I consider myself blue with a small trace of white.

I have a [[http://onlysanemadman.wordpress.com/ blog]], for reasons even I don't fully comprehend. I also run a [[http://yourphysicsiskarkatrocious.tumblr.com/ tumblr]] in-character as Karkat from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', in which I answer science questions and dispense personal insults, so if you want something explained with extra shouting, go ahead. I am also the official [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCId2RFqN9bkha7DoetapW8w/videos?view=0&flow=grid Misadventure Gurus]] advertising director, which means basically putting links in sigs occasionally. And I have a [[https://twitter.com/CountDorku still embryonic twitter]].

neglect! Go me! I mean, seriously, it's been so long since I updated this thing that [[SummerHeightsHigh Chris Lilley]] will be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

* BerserkButton: You can believe in whatever deity you want, but if you buy into HollywoodAtheist or claim intelligent design theory is better than evolution because LOL STRAWMAN, I will give you a dressing down you will not forget. (Generally this applies to the letters page of a local newspaper and the dressing down takes the form of letters to the editor that will point out, numerically, in what ways you are wrong.)
** I also tend to flip out when "realism" is brought up in a context where nothing works according to the premises of the real world, such as most cartoons and some tabletop games.
** More recently, I've learned that most of the things AynRand has said really, really piss me off.
