"From one "New Guy" to another, Welcome! I can really identify when you say "my path in live has meandered quite a bit". While I am not disappointed with my life, I do feel that I haven't accomplished anything. At…"
Nice to meet all of you. I am a native Southerner (although if you ask my family we'll say we're German) moving to Colorado to begin my Master's degree.

My big projects right now are learning to play the guitar, teaching myself German and Japanese, and writing a novella. I would like to start getting into better shape and learning some survival skills.
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, and Watership Down by Richard Adams are my all time favorites. There are far too many others that I enjoy to list.
I enjoy horror movies quite a bit. It's crass, but my favorites are probably The Devil's Rejects and House of 1,000 Corpses. The Poughkeepsie Tapes is also excellent.

Go forth and set the world on fire.

"I've always liked the definition that integrity is a perfect alignment of your values and your actions. There are limitations to that, though. There's the "yeah, but what if you're an asshole?" problem. So,…"
"When I think of integrity, I think of it as maintaining who I am: my morals, my character, my needs, my reputation. Integrity is damaged or lost when I let thinks, situations, or people take me too far from my center in any of those areas."
"What you say is true.... But the other alternatives are even more damaging. Socialist and communist economies concentrate the power even more than capitalism and democracy. What ever system you pick the outcome for the people you describe would be…"
