I no longer really frequent this site. Hell, it's been almost a year. Well it was great while it lasted.
Expanding to greater and more fascinating detail:
Ahoy thar! People call me Tom. Mainly due to the reason that it's my name, and because it gives a word to describe my handsome manly features, high intellect, and captivating personality. Among other things:
I'm about 5'10", although I could be 5'11" by now. I don't know because measuring yourself constantly while you're still growing requires effort - effort being something I tend to try and avoid involving myself with at all costs.
I have hazel-green eyes, and dirty-blond hair. Hyphens make me look as though my intelligence level is below normal and that I have simply acquired an immense vocabulary through memorization which often fools others into believing I am more intellegent than I actually am. However, my intelligence level is in fact far above the average, so the statement is invalid.
I played the cello for a year in 4th grade (expertly, of course). I never really got into it, though, and discontinued the usage of this instrument in 5th grade and chose instead to play percussion. The set was stolen about a week into 5th grade however, at which point I figured I would bow out from the musical industry.
In the political world I am Independent, although leaning towards left wing.
That being said, I am Pro-Choice until a certain time during the pregnancy, although I'm not sure where to draw the line. For sure, if the baby is at the point where it could be removed surgically and still mature as a human being, then I am, in that situation, Pro-Life.
I'm for gay rights, although I'm not sure about calling gay unions marriage. The main point in my reasoning is that the specific word 'marriage' (not the idea) came about in Europe when the Church controlled it. I'm not saying marriage itself should be limited only to believers in the Judeo-Christian God and those they decree to be fit for marriage, but that the description for that act as the word 'marriage' could be limited as such. I could be swayed in my opinion, though.
I am most definitely not accepting of religion, as it causes wars and has fought against equal rights since it was first created. Not to mention that Christianity and all other religions of today are just as probable as the Greek or Norse gods of yore. In case you were wondering, that probability is around 1 in 9000 bajillion. Obviously, I am an atheist. I won't go into full detail here, but I will share Russel's Teapot. Here it is:
"Many orthodox people speak as though it were the business of skeptics to disprove received dogmas rather than of dogmatists to prove them. This is, of course, a mistake. If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time."
Unsurprisingly, I am 6.9 on the Spectrum of Theistic Probability.
In the current time, society is prejudice to the standard white male.
Although recent updates have been moderately shitty, and it's become SpinScape, RuneScape is very agreeable. As a note of precaution, I'll lock you in the trunk of flaming car if you think you're better than me because you play codfish or WoW. (I has no idea how one crosses out stuff, but all of that should now be crossed out, RuneScape is mediocre at best for me, now.)
Other than RuneScape, the finest video game is Super Mario Sunshine. I used to play Super Mario Sunshine on my GameCube, but now I play Super Mario Sunshine on my Wii. Eventually, I will play Super Mario Sunshine on my WiiU. Sadly, I can't play Super Mario Sunshine on my DS or play Super Mario Sunshine on my computer. Pokemon is pretty cool, both basic game and competitive, and I would also beat you in a game of Arcanists. I also have a very nice Minecraft, here. Thankfully, nothing will happen to it.
Actually Team Fortress 2 is now probably the best video game. Spy is the best class, although I've recently been enjoying Rocket Jumper Solider to a great extent. I don't really want to reword the previous couple paragraphs, so I shall, instead, leave my gaming paragraphs in this trichotomy.
The Singularity is Near.
The Knight and The Wizard by Gene Wolfe are superior to other books in the world of fiction. Harry Potter is good, but it's infinitely overrated. Kind of like Superman.
I enjoy a wide variety of music, I think. My favorite band is Disturbed, but I also find a few songs by Ke$ha and the like to be considerably pleasing.
Naruto is a fantastic show and Kakuzu, Jiraiya, and Shikamaru are the best characters. Too bad at least two of them die.
Star Wars is great, but I know the whole thing word for word, so it's not very fun. Midnight Run is a funny movie.
My Jung Typology Test personality result is INTJ (Introvert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging). I've taken it twice (the times being at least a year a part) and both times this was the result. Try it out yourself, here: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp
Also, and I admittedly stole the idea for this from Hilary, my full name can be rearranged to read "Attack Trek From Rip Zip". As such, I am impressively cool.
I'm on a horse.
Update: I might have to consider going gay for this guy: http://www.youtube.com/user/NightmareRH
