I'm Eric, and contrary to popular belief, I am not a spambot.
It symbolically goes without saying (paradox-averted!) that I am a big fan of xkcd. I am here because I am a hyper-nerd and want to have nerdy discussions where I'm not the only one saying nerdy stuff.
My interests: Science of all kinds. Especially biology (I am all over evolution like something that has a high affinity for elegant science). From the cosmic scale of evolution right down to the mindintercourse that is ATP-Synthase (guys! it's a protein, but it's also a motor! duuuude!), it's all good. Also like physics and chemistry, though I've not been keeping up with that stuff as much as I'd like. Anyway, yeah, lots of nerdy-sciencey stuff. Oh, and guitar, that's my other big thing.
Here's some random info, for s's and g's: I have a habit of compulsively whistling the circus/clown music (yes, that one). For some reason I like to take the opening bit of Goldfinger (Gold-finger (mwah mwaaah wah) He's the man, the man with the Midas touch) and replace it with whatever events are currently happening or on my mind (surprise buttsex (mwah mwaaah wah), it's the buttsex, the buttsex that you don't expect). I think Phosphoric Acid has a particularly aesthetically pleasing chemical name. Oh yeah, I'm British, currently residing in the East End of Lahndahn (you slaaayg!). I have yet to find an ingredient that you can't combine with cheese. I have a number recognition/fascination which stops just short of OCD. I bite my nails. Depending on how I wear my hair, I alternately resemble Jerry Garcia, Frank Zappa, and/or (apparently) Saladin's Mom. Despite being British, I've not had a proper (propah!) cup of tea for a good few months now. And of course, I do indeed think Dark Side of the Moon is transcendent.
Erm, yes. That'll do for an introduction.
You look like Saladin's Mom? How do you know this? Have you met her? Is she hot? XD
