About Me:Hello, my name is Harder, and I also go by "Chris". I'm an extremely and ever-increasingly introverted person who does not like talking to people unless I've gotten used to them - and I generally dislike other people aside from those I'm used to being around. I like spending time by myself or with my closest friends. I've also become far more cynical and sardonic than I used to be. I'm an INTJ, and my greatest interests are politics and philosophy.
Activities:Not really much to talk about.
Beliefs:Apathetic agnosticism. Politically, I'm very left-wing and very socially liberal. I'm a socialist. Preferably, I'm an isolationist with foreign policy.
Books:Infinite Jest
Movies:Shawshank Redemption, Pink Floyd - The Wall, Goodfellas, The Godfather, Scarface, Mean Girls, Star Wars, Imitation Game, Eyes Wide Shut, Hell or High Water, Wild Strawberries, The Dark Knight
Music:My favorite genres are prog rock, psychedelic rock, and other experimental rock - but I dabble elsewhere sometimes --- Pink Floyd, The Roots, Rush, Radiohead, Genesis, The Beatles, Ween --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mKDvp7MavQ
Quotes:"If you define yourself by your power to take life, the desire to dominate, to possess - then you have nothing." -Obi-Wan Kenobi

"I don't think I'm very easy to talk about. I've got a very irregular head. And I'm not anything you think I am, anyway." -Syd Barrett

"I wasn't always this introverted." -Syd Barrett

"The parts of me that used to think I was different or smarter or whatever, almost made me die." -David Foster Wallace

"Beware the barrenness of a busy life." - Socrates

"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you." -Friedrich Nietzsche

"The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?" -Edgar Allen Poe

School only lets people stay bored , watch the time, *Tick* *Tock*. So we should at least shorten it. Kids have way too much homework so they should not have any. People have had more then 12 Years in school! You think that its wow, thats like jail. Mostly kids should learn at home. Thats great because you can have soup for lunch, play Fifa, MW3, Minecraft for recess too. Well teachers will not lose their jobs, they will get transfered. See kids have fun, less school, no homework because school...

Becuase the ISIS is evil and will edstroy America, we must stand up and fight. If Obama thinks we will just sit here and do nothing we will die. We must arm ourselves because the ISIS will bring Ebola here. But the dirty liberals don't want no guns here, no sir....
