SaltTheFries in one sentence: The quintessential nerd.
Full Bio:
Not really the quintessential nerd...
Somewhat cynical.
A fan of irony.
Very opinionated.
I spend the majority of my life off on tangents.

I find that I'm driven by curiosity above anything else. I always find myself looking at something and asking "how?" and "why?" whether I wish to or not. I can spend anything from hours to weeks trying to figure out the answer to my latest question.
I have a personality which some people find abrasive, but much less than it once was.
I'm ambitious, but I try not to allow my motivation for success to take over my life.

I've realized that some people don't understand my handle (SaltTheFries). It comes from an error message in the game System Shock 1. If you aren't familiar with either System Shock 1 or 2, you're really missing something; visit sshock2.com for more about this awesome game.
