Hi, been lurking a while, finally decided to legitimize my presence with a login :) This username has been with me since high school. For those of you who don't get the reference, I took the name from a character from a Sherlock Holmes short story called "A Scandal in Bohemia;" she's the only person who has ever outwitted Holmes :) I'm a 27-year-old female based in Los Angeles, sometimes-scientist, full-time-nerd. I was a biology major and have been doing research for a few years, but I'm now more interested in network dynamics, emergent properties, and such -- though I'm a total noob at it. I enjoy reading a lot, and lately I've been soaking up some pop-science books on sociology and human behavior, like Freakonomics and Traffic. Right now I think my dream project would be to do experiments in decision theory and apply the data towards a network model of microeconomics, because human behavior is just fascinating, and the only way to figure out such a complex system as the economy is how biologists try to figure out the complex system of a cell: with computers!

And of course like all "good nerds" I have an addiction to MMOs and anime. I play two level 80 priests in WoW (holy/disc and holy/shadow), have bought every single game in the Dynasty/Samurai Warriors franchise, and am in the process of working through Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei. Oh yes and Sims. I loves me some simulated human life forms.

So, hello xkcd forums! Yoroshiku-onegaishimasu :)

If anyone ever asks me to donate to any sort of cause, whether I believe in it or not, I can't help but donate. Would I care to donate five dollars to the Let's Exterminate All Tiny Children fund? I would love to. Okay, that's taking it to an extreme, but seriously. Someone help me say no. I have found a new passion for baking within the past couple of months. Unfortunately, I've also been experimenting a lot and there's just something about muffins that are this color that plays with my head and I can't force myself to eat. I'm pretty laid back, maybe too much at times. The only thing that I can think of that bothers me currently are those Facebook groups that say, "If I get to (CertainAmountofMembers) then (ActionWillOccur)". Most recent example? "If this group gets to 100,000 members, my dad will quit smoking!"

I'm 20 and I sleep more than anyone really should. I take night classes just so I can sleep in until 12PM if I desire. I'm currently not majoring in anything because I find myself enjoying learning about everything and can't pick one or two things to focus on. I tend to dwell on the past and I miss high school an unbelievable amount. I want to learn how to Jerk.

Hi Irene :) . Sims is great. Which one do you prefer, 1, 2 or 3? It seems to fit well with your other interests 8) .

Hi turtle. Sleeping more than anyone should? Nobody should sleep less than 9.5 hours a night, says me.

I think I'll have to go with 3, because the whole town progresses while you're playing individual families, even though the EA system for the progression is totally lame and nigh unplayable (but that's what mods are for :)). It always used to really annoy me in Sims 2 that my sims would make friends at school, or get a boyfriend, and then they age up, and their friend/SO would stay a kid/teen. They tried to fix it towards the end of the Sims 2 series by adding in a functionality that let you age up your friends when your active sim ages up, but it felt kind of contrived. Also the new system where you can retexture objects in game is a huge plus. It makes the game a total memory hog, but it makes decorating soooo much more fun, though it's a bit of a mixed blessing, because I'm a really meticulous person so it used to take me upwards of 4 hours to decorate a medium-sized house. Now that I have practically infinite recolorable textures for every single object, it's pretty much an all-day endeavor.

I'm a 22 year old female who hails from Canada. I actually had issues signing up for this forum, as I clicked that I was underaged by accident when signing up and was sent a parental consent form in order to activate my account. :/ Had to make a new one. d'oh

I'm a bit of a video game nerd, been playing since I could remember. I also used to program websites. I mostly only know HTML and a little flash and css. I just recently finished my schooling in electrical technology, so mostly electrician's stuff and a little PLC programming. I've made miniature robots from kits. I suck at math unless it's physics. I also like to read a lot when it strikes me. My lastest book is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's not my favourite so far but it's good. I also love to cook. And I love Jimi Hendrix.

I think I saw that book somewhere once. I wasn't sure whether to be appalled or amused, but I was definitely intrigued. Though I've already read the worst possible travesty that is "Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife," in which an American housewife pissing on Austen's grave by taking the characters from P&P and putting them in a trashy Harlequin romance.

P.S. I actually find trashy romances quite entertaining for what they are, but to drag Austen's wonderfully subtle characters and setting down to the level of dime store prose and hackneyed plot points is just... no.

As long as I've got it right, it's the same book, only with parts about the ongoing zombie plague written in, as well as some twerking of the characters to allow for zombie fighting skills. I'm only on chapter 7.

Hey all!! Long-time peruser of xkcd, but just now getting around to joining the forums. I like it so far. :) So, just a little about me, I'm a college student here in the south and no, I've not found a strange attraction to my brother. Yet. ;P

Eh, I meant to write something clever and witty but I can't think of anything. C'est la vie. :oops:

Uh hi my name's Rob (duh), I've been lurking for a couple of weeks so I finally decided I might as well register. Anyways things about me, I'm in my first year of a mathematics degree at cardiff (when I'm older I can tell people I went to the best university in the country and because I'm British they'll think I mean Cambridge/Oxford 8) ). I found xkcd after my physics teacher showed the class this* about a year ago. Don't really have anything else to say apart from hi...again.

(I really hate making these posts.)

*Ok so I only just read the rules so since I don't have 5 posts I'll take out the link, I'm assuming this is acceptable though.

It's the best Welsh university :D On the British league tables it doesn't score amazing high, though I wouldn't exactly call it terrible.

Yeh I just assumed that one reason for the rules might be because I could quite easily do something like this xkcd.com only instead of linking to google I could link to some virus or something and people that don't check urls before clicking would be kinda screwed.

I think the rule is there to prevent people from registering just to post a link advertizing their website/product/blog, then never coming back and doing anything useful. And nobody would mind an xkcd comic being advertized :) .

The need for forum based interaction with sentient (and even sapient, woohoo) entities has lead me to register on this forum.

I will begin by giving some context to myself.
[context]
1. I spend a large amount of time reading these forums, lurking and learning. (Lurning... Ha...)
2. I have been home-schooled my entire life.
3. My age is 18.
4. My gender will not be revealed, I want people guessing on this one, In the name of blinded studies.
5. I live in the middle of nowhere.

Staving off insanity is my primary goal here.

Hallo!

I'm norsk_heks, I'll leave it up to you to figure out what that means. ;)

I'm a first-year linguistics grad student. I spent last year teaching English in China. My focus is in phonetics/phonology. I love tones. I love the Beatles, Harry Potter, and The Office (both versions but especially US). And I love xkcd. I don't always get it, but I love it. I tend to get frustrated when people file into rows haphazardly, ignoring the computationally difficult problem of seating for maximum enjoyment; I feel bad when an automatic door opens for me and I don't go in; I read on Saturday nights; I probably spent more time filling in bubbles correctly on standardized tests than actually answering the questions; and when somebody says "Punch buggy, no punch back", I punch them on principle.

I'm heading off to Otago University next year, funded by the NZ government and my saving from working in a electronics store for close to 2 years. Apart from work and hanging out with friends, most of my time is taken up lurking on IRC for an online political game I play.

Which political game do you play?


Cybernations. My girlfriend got me into it.
