About me:I'm a cartoonist, with my first minicomic on the stands, and the self-anthology book LICENSE FARM shooting for a third quarter 2008 release into the wild. As a person I feel I'm someone worth knowing and, dare I suggest it, knowing well and, in certain cases, knowing biblically. I have my peculiarities; some people enjoy them, others can't cope. Your results may vary, but understand that no impressions exist in a vacuum. I do my part to bridge the gap, but I'm not going to build the whole damn thing myself.
And now for some ready-made, frighteningly accurate self-analysis:
56 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 52% Dork
|For The Record:|
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.
Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).
Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Who I'd like to meet:You know who I'd really like to meet? The girl from the future with the half-purple, half-green hair and the crazy spandex from the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure who I fixated upon when I was a kid... as an adult, of course. Oh, and non-fictional. (Oddly enough, I feel like this may have come to pass, and she kinda gave me a cold shoulder. What does that mean?)
I'd like to meet anyone who'll buy me things off this Amazon Wishlist. If nothing else, it's a peek into the bizarre miasma of interests in my mind, more than can be contained here. (Fair warning: there's over 1500 items on this now. I don't seriously expect to get them all, but you may wish to browse it by item type and/or priority for easier digestion.)
One more rating for the road:
PS: Who don't I want to meet? Spammers. Not that I figure they'd read this, but just in case: let me assure you, I know who you are without even needing to open your profile, and I report you every time. I've been online since 1992; I don't get fooled, period.
