I admire a lot of people, or find them inspirational in one way or another. I find Julian Assange of Wikileaks
a really inspirational person. I am a fan of a lot content produced by Penn Jillette
and John Stossel
. I found the commencement speech by Steve Jobs
also really agreeable.
I find a lot of movements or organizations really fantastic. Some of them include things such as the Free State Project
, Open Source Software (e-commerce software, TAILS 0.8
, Forum software, WikiMedia, and of course Bitcoin) really intriguing and useful.
I a big fan of Pink Floyd, Modest Mouse
, and Tom Petty
. Pink Floyd is by far the best.
I like to garden. I grow plants such as Datura Inoxia, D. stramonium var tatula, Pereskiopsis spathulata, Echinopsis pachanoi, Argyreia Nervosa, Salvia divinorum, Nicotiana rustica, N. sylvestris, N. tobacum, Opuntia fragilis, and a few other plants. I try to change it up each year with other exotic plants which have an interesting alkaloid profile that gives them cultural significance. I am really interested in grafting cacti to pereskiopsis, and then growing them hydroponically.
I also like to grow and collect mushrooms. I have only grown a few types of mushrooms. I have recently grown Pleurotus djamor (Pink Oyster) and Lentinula edodes (
I have tons of different cultures of different types stored in my refrigerator, however. The cultures range from wildly collected tree oyster Pleurotus ostreatus, to things like Cordyceps and other parasitic fungi.
I think parasitic, or symbiotic fungi/endophytes in general are especially interesting as they have potential for medicinal use and could possibly produce complex organic molecules cost effectively in nutrient solutions. Checkout the endophyte in Taxus brevifolia that produces an anti-cancer drug.
I believe I am an ENTJ
or possibly a INTJ
, perhaps 50% each? Not too sure I even buy into the Myer Briggs personality stuff, but it is interesting to think about, I guess?
I want to have Asperger's Syndrome
. I possibly have it to a small extent. Global Warming is bullshit
I used to make nitrocellulose, black powder, fireworks/rockets, and other chemistry related things as a child (6th - 8th grade) but that become more interesting in medicinal chemistry, eventually getting an interest in liberty and entrepreneurial related endeavors. I have always
had an interest in biology.
I drink a lot of green tea along with taking vitamin B complex and D3
vitamins. I take piracetam
, and curcumin along with a V8 fairly regularly. I also ride many miles often on my road bike.
I would like for people to hurry up and cure aging. I guess if I ever get rich enough to do some serious philanthropy I will try to help cure aging.
I have an interest with Wasps. Likely because wasps are one of the most fascinating creatures in the world
, and are the ONLY true social insect. Bees and ants are not social insects when you look at them in an evolutionary perspective - and why would you ever look at an organisms from another perspective?
At some point I hope to get a large wasp colony and keep the wasps as pets. I had pet wasps before and they are MUCH more entertaining to watch than fish, and require about the same amount of attention. I would argue that they make better pets than most animals as you get to watch them and the colony grow, communicate with one another, share food, hunt for prey, and so on.
I've got a lot of interests and projects. This kind of makes me Jack of all trades, and master of none. :(
