I dunno, lots of ways. Anyway. What do I do? I don't know. I was installing linux because loasn gave me a thing, and then I remembered there was a meeting. I like math, signals processing. What do I like? Physics is pretty cool. Pretty much anything that you hated in your childhood, that's what I'm about. I love brussels sprouts. You should pick better people than me.'
