Getting things done.

Introduction
I write a lot here. I'm looking for people interested in ideas; I reach out to them by writing down mine.

I also reshare a lot of other people's images. Lots of people are funnier than I am, and I am totally good with that.

I'm a writer first, rugby player second, carouser third. After that, I'm an editor at an oncology journal. Oh, yeah, and I'm on the board of directors of American Mensa, which is part of Mensa International, the high-IQ society. 

See also: 

Fencing, writing, literature, cooking, fitness. 

N. Stephenson, W. Gibson, H. Melville, RW Emerson, W. Whitman, I. Pears, HP Lovecraft, R. Fagels. 

Fight Club, Boondock Saints, Iron Man, Groundhog Day, V for Vendetta, Porky's, The Hangover, Jackass, 300, The Matrix. 

Rock/dance. 

xkcd, Oglaf, Toothpaste for Dinner, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, The Oatmeal.
