I like finding knowledge bombs on the Internet that detonate in your mind, creating massive explosions of insight and laughter. Other things I like besides torturing bad metaphors: warm laundry, social movements, and making your bar chatter more interesting. Like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter to make creative chipmunk insults at my expense.
