Computer Scientist. Vegetarian. Homebrewer. Musician.
Introduction
I'm a Googler and a computer scientist whose dissertation was on coordinating autonomous vehicles at intersections. I've been a vegetarian since 2004 for basically all the reasons except flavor and religion. I play the guitar and am a music lover with a very eclectic collection. I also like to run, make my own beer, use American Sign Language, and play with my kids.
Bragging rights
Have 2 kids and survived 7.5 years of graduate school. You can trust me, I'm a doctor.

Always seemed like BS to me. I guess now I can rest easy knowing I'm not missing out on something.

http://www.scienceofrunning.com/2010/07/compression-socks.html?m=1 is a good article on this topic. I personally find that they are good for recovery, not so much while running.

Pappy Kurt's Olde Tyme Root Beer
I've always liked root beer. Even as a kid, I (mistakenly) considered myself a bit of a root beer connoisseur. In college, I was introduced to both Henry Weinhard's and Thomas Kemper's root beer, and realized that root beer could be  even better . It wasn't...

An amazing buffet of VEGAN Thai food! Kids under 4 are free and they even brought us some sliced mango for the little ones, which was some of the best mango I've ever had.

Some excellent vegetarian options including a butternut squash enchilada, and some excellent tamales. Flan was also quite good.
