About Me:I am an Embedded Systems Engineer in my late 20's. I am Scottish and have always lived in Scotland. I am a University Graduate and obtained a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Computer and Electronic Systems Engineering. I have tutored, worked at one of the biggest computer game developers in the world and I still don't know what I want to do in terms of a career. I have been learning Danish for close to 5 years and if I didn't study engineering then I certainly would have enjoyed studying Languages, History, English or Music instead. I have played guitar for around 14 years and would say that music is an important part of who I am. I am very open to changing my mind about something, but always require evidence or very convincing arguments. I like to think that I am happy to say I believe in, agree with, or disagree with something based on some form of research I have taken beforehand. I won't pick a side if I know little about the subject matter, such as U.S. politics.
Activities:I love to go to the cinema, but I think that most material released today is complete nonsense. I enjoy reading and if I find a world interesting enough then I can spend months or years learning more about it. Listening to music is a big part of my day and I also like to write music...though I rarely write lyrics. I have played computer games since I was a young child and my Dad brought home an Amiga 1200 and let me play Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight, a heavily violent game for such a young child! Since then I have always loved gaming, especially PC gaming. Adventure games like Monkey Island and Full Throttle have been a passion of mine for close to 20 years and I am currently trying to make my own. I have a love of electronics and technology and I like understanding how the piece of technology I use actually works. I collect blu-rays and do enjoy TV shows on blu-ray, but I do not actually watch any TV channels at all. I enjoy debates, from religion to a band's best album.
Beliefs:As an anti-theist I believe that all organisations related to any religion should not be exempt from the same laws that apply to non religious organisations. Self-policing, tax exemption and a say in national politics should be completely abolished. Religion is an important part of history and should be discussed in history class, but creationism and religious studies should be removed from schools. I do not believe in respecting another persons beliefs just because they adhere to that persons chosen religion. If you are homophobic, racist or sexist then I will not accept it just because you are religious. I am anti-monarchist and a major supporter of Scottish independence I am against affirmative action and do not feel white guilt over the actions of past generations. I believe all races can suffer from racism (including white people). I fully support equal rights for all sexes and support the right for homosexuals to be treated in the same regard as heterosexuals. Misanthrope.
Books:I am a massive fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and have read The Lord of the Rings 15 times (so far). Books such as The Hobbit and The Silmarillion are obviously excellent, but it is The Lord of the Rings that offers me something new every time I read it. While I do enjoy The Lord of the Rings movies, they offer nowhere nothing close to the experience of reading the story. I am also a fan of H.P. Lovecraft and while I don't think he was technically an absolutely fantastic writer, I love the imagination and intense horror that is always present in his works. Cosmic horror is great and as a self proclaimed misanthrope I do enjoy reading stories where humanity isn't considered the most important thing in the Universe. I also enjoy the works of Edgar Allan Poe, H.G. Wells, Richard Matheson, Michael Moorcock, Orwell, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick and Frank Herbert. As you can tell, Science Fiction is particularly enjoyable for me!

The process of delving into the black abyss is to me the keenest form of fascination. - H.P. Lovecraft
