This blog used to be a commentary of my misadventures on Dereth, in the game,
“Asheron’s Call.” Now it’s an extension of my Twitter feed. Some things take more than 140 characters to say. First things first — the curious matter of my “name . . . “
“Tai Fung” is my handle from the MMORPG “Asheron’s Call.” It’s a lovely game, and has served as a nice pseudonym for online crapola. I use it because by day, I’m an attorney with the Feds, just an OK distance runner (shooting for a sub-4 hour marathon), and sucky triathlete. That sport is also VERY expensive, but I keep trying (to not drown)!
In mid 2010, I sustained the leading edge of a serious knee injury. I ran on it anyway. This resulted in me missing ALL of 2011, and 2012 was spent running short distances. I’m hopeful that 2013 will see me back, although I guess I’ll always be slower. Don’t run while injured. It will come back to bite you.
I was the CLASSIC high school nerd. I still am, but I’m no longer scared of Jocks or Preppies.
I am squarely pro-science, and anti-extremist. “South Park” often mirrors my take on an issue. Pick an issue, we usually match. And curse. A lot! If mere words can offend you, it’s your problem, not mine.
I’m a proponent of the Skepticism movement (think James Randi and the JREF). I consider myself “Agnostic,” as most would call it. I’m glad if you believe in God. I’m disinterested in the question. Science works. Let’s be clear: I am PRO-vaccine. 9/11 was done by Al-Q, not an inside job. Obama was born in Hawaii. And, because I can’t believe I have to say this, germs cause disease (wow).
On the right is a list of some of my own tweets. They are a pretty good cross section of who I am.
I delete @reply tweets very frequently. The full explanation why is in this blog. Nothing personal. I’m all about a clean TL.
FYI: The former “complete Twitter list” of everyone connected with the wonderful musical, “The Book of Mormon,” has been deleted. It’s a great show, but I am no longer a follower of anyone associated with it. The explanation why is in this blog.
