Name- King Draconias (As far as you're concerned).
Age- Between the time I was born and until the day I die.
About Me- I am unrepentantly sarcastic at the best of times and if you're someone I find enjoyable to speak to you will likely have to double check to know whether or not something I just said is meant to be a joke or if I was serious. My sense of humor is extremely dry and I have almost no filter between my brain and my mouth which can cause the occasional misunderstanding. My sense of humor can also take extremely morbid turns at the most random times and my gallows humor isn't exactly something for the general public. I also tend to regularly joke about my own death to the point of it possibly being unhealthy. I am a very honest person simply because I see no point in lies that needlessly complicate things. If I don't like you odds are I won't interact with you much at all in order to minimize any potential confrontation, but if I like you I will probably be that little voice on your shoulder that bares a distinct resemblance to a tiny devil telling you to go for it and screw the consequences. Despite that, I genuinely care for my friends and family even if I am probably at the heart of most of the craziness that happens with them. I am a veritable fortress of contradictory personality traits, but I always try my best to stick to my principles because I cannot stand hypocrites who abandon their principles whenever they feel like it.
"Fun" Fact About Me: I have Asperger's Syndrome/High Functioning Autism. I was originally diagnosed when I was very young so I grew up with this as a fact of my life. It's always been a subtle, yet overarching part of my identity and because of that I really have little tolerance for people who say vaccines cause it. It isn't caused by vaccines, it's all in the wiring of the brain and it's a part of who I am. While it can be difficult sometimes navigating social interactions, I would not be who I am today without it and no matter how annoying it can be I would not change it for the world.
Personal Philosophy- I am an Agnostic Theist. What that means is actually pretty simple. An Agnostic is someone who is in-between being an Atheist (believing in no God(s) whatsoever) and being a Theist (believing in a higher power), but there are at least four different types of Agnostic. For the purposes of my explanation, I will just clarify the version of Agnostic I am.
An Agnostic Theist believes in the existence of a God or group of Gods, but doesn't lay claim to know just what kind of higher power exists. To simplify my explanation a little more, I believe that there is most likely something around that could be classified as a God or Gods, but I don't really feel comfortable claiming to believe in one theology over another so I choose to split the difference and maintain my faith without directing it. Although, I do have a more specific belief system that isn't completely what I just described (just look over the next paragraph if you're curious).
As far as I'm concerned all God(s) that are spoken about throughout history, the ones spoken about in the present, and those that will be spoken about in the future, already exist, and the God(s) you worship as well as any God(s) whose followers you have grievously harmed or killed, for reasons other than protecting those you love or innocents from immediate danger and self-defense, are the ones who judge you after your death. Atheists are automatically reincarnated into what they deserve based on what they did with their life. Agnostics are judged by the Higher Beings that they believe in and are judged based on how they lived their life and if they lived their life by the principles that they truly believed in. The Higher World, also known as the Heavens, is divided into sectors separated for each religion's God(s) to exist as well as the afterlives that they rule over. There are two Lower Worlds, one is known as the Underworld and the other is known as Hell. Depending on the severity of the crime committed by a Mortal Soul and whether or not they made up for their crime while they were alive, a soul has four options after they leave their Mortal Bodies. If they have successfully made up for the crime(s) they committed in life, they will be allowed to choose between reincarnation or living in their religion's afterlife. If they haven't made up for their crime(s) while they were alive, depending on the severity of the crime(s) and the soul's emotions toward the crime(s) (i.e whether or not they feel genuine regret for committing it/them or if their reasons for committing the crime are understandable.), they will be sent to either the Underworld or Hell. If they feel genuine regret for their crime(s) or their reasoning behind the committing of the crime(s) is understandable, the soul will be sent to the Underworld for a personalized punishment for a specific period of time and once that time is served the soul is reincarnated into the Mortal World to try again or very rarely, depending on the circumstances, the soul may have their punishment waived completely and be allowed to choose between their religion's afterlife or reincarnation. This process has no limit and as long as a soul doesn't commit a truly irredeemable crime with no remorse or reason they will be allowed to try an indefinite amount of times until they succeed and are allowed to enter the afterlife of their religion. However if a soul commits a truly irredeemable crime and feel absolutely no remorse for committing it and they had no understandable reasoning behind it, the soul is removed from the cycle of reincarnation, is barred from entering the Higher World forever, and they are sentenced to Hell for all eternity. The truly irredeemable crimes that can be committed are best left judged by Higher Beings because they are far less blinded by Mortal emotions than any Mortal and other Living Beings.
Political Ideology- I really, really don't like politics despite it being my focus (I feel that it brings out the absolute worst in everyone involved). However, I feel it is my duty as a citizen to participate in the political process in order to make sure that my voice is heard as best I can. The beliefs I follow when it comes to politics average about center-left but range from left to center-right on the political "left-right" spectrum below.
Communist (Extreme-Left) Socialist (Far-Left) Progressive (Left-Wing Populist) Liberal (Center-Left) Moderate (Center) Conservative (Center-Right) Libertarian (Right-Wing Populist) Nationalist (Far-Right) Fascist (Extreme-Right)
Explanation for the Spectrum: Just to be clear, I don't believe that everyone fits in a neat little category when it comes to political belief systems. Instead I believe people fall into shades of some areas of the spectrum, as I do.
Hobbies- Watching sports (Football, Basketball, and Baseball in that order mostly), Playing video games, Reading (books and fanfiction), Watching TV (cartoons, anime, pretty much anything that catches my attention), Reading random things on TV Tropes (be sure to have a couple hours set aside should you ever go to that site, you will not finish quickly), Writing stories (when I have no homework and I am not suffering from Writer's Block), and relaxing (usually in the form of zoning out or sleeping).

Pairings I Like/Dislike
Pokemon (Anime & Games)
AshxDawn (I thought they were really cute together and I loved the Diamond & Pearl seasons. I feel the two of them really had some chemistry with each other.)
WesxRui (Admittedly, Wes didn't talk, but that just leaves things open to everyone's imagination. And that's partly why I like this pairing, because their are so many different possibilities with what can be done with the two of them.)
TakatoxRika (The two of them make a really interesting pairing in my opinion. Over time their relationship has evolved from being enemies to being close friends.)
HenryxJeri (Henry can be a very sympathetic person, and with all the trauma that Jeri has gone through, I think that they could really grow to care for each other.)
RyoxRika (Ryo is a flaky person at best. Him and Rika wouldn't really get along much and the fact that he's very self entered makes me doubt that the two of them would ever get along.)
Lelouch x Anya (I think that they were rather close when they were kids, considering the fact that Anya had a picture of a young Lelouch on her phone, and I think it would be an interesting pairing.)
Lelouch x C.C. (I really liked their relationship in canon and I found them to be very interesting, especially since Lelouch was probably the closest relationship that C.C. had in a very long time. I think that this pairing is something that has great potential and it is definitely something about it that seems very captivating.)
Lelouch x Kallen (Kallen's great loyalty to Lelouch, along with her feelings for him, make this pairing a very interesting one in my opinion.)
Lelouch x Kaguya (Kaguya is such a little hellion, not to mention the intellect she must have to run a corporate conglomerate at her age, and I think she matches up amusingly with a large ham like Lelouch.)
Lelouch x Milly (Since Milly is only one year older than Lelouch and her family sponsored his mother when she was one of the first Knightmare Pilots, I'm almost positive they knew each other when they were children and I think that their dynamic when they are in school is very funny. I think that this would be a very sweet pairing.)
Lelouch x Shirley (Despite Shirely's lack of knowledge regarding Lelouch's true nature, both as a Prince and as Zero later on, I just found her to be a very refreshing breath compared to many other protagonist love interests in that she truly did fall in love with Lelouch over time and she didn't just bend over and do whatever he asked. She had a really sweet and kind personality that, in contrast with Lelouch's cold demeanor, seemed to melt the walls surrounding Lelouch's heart away over time. I just find this pairing to be a very sweet one in my opinion.)
Lelouch x Jiang Lihua (I think that, after spending a lot of time around Kaguya and as long as she didn't end up with Xingke, Lihua could really grow to like Zero, and later Lelouch, eventually.)
Lelouch x Nunnally (Regardless of anything else about this pairing, I think that the love between Lelouch and Nunnally is something very beautiful and I just can't help but like this pairing.)
Suzaku x Euphemia (Despite their naivete, I think that the two of them were very sweet together and I really enjoyed the relationship between the two of them.)
Xingke x Jiang Lihua (Because Xingke is older, I don't think that he is necessarily romantically attracted to the young Lihua, who is only like thirteen or fourteen in R2. I think what he feels for her is a great devotion for her sparing his life, but he could definitely grow to fall in love with her once she matures.)
A couple from Minneapolis decided to go to Florida for a long weekend to thaw out during one particularly icy winter. Because both had jobs, they had difficulty coordinating their travel schedules. It was decided that the husband would fly to Florida on a Thursday, and his wife would follow him the next day.
Upon arriving as planned, the husband checked into the hotel. There he opened his laptop and sent his wife an e-mail back in Minneapolis. However, he accidentally left off one letter in her email address and sent the e-mail to the wrong address, without realizing his error.
In Houston, a widow had just returned from her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who had been "called home to glory" following a heart attack. The widow checked her e-mail expecting messages from relatives and friends.
Upon reading the first message, she fainted and fell to the floor. Hearing the crash, the widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother, and read the e-mail still on the screen.
To: My Loving Wife From: Your Departed Husband Subject: I've Arrived!
I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. It sure is hot down here!
The passenger tapped the cab driver on the shoulder to ask him something. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the sidewalk, and stopped inches from a department store window. For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, "Look mister, don't ever do that again. You scared me half to death!"
The passenger apologized and said he didn't realize that a little tap could scare him so much.
The driver replied, "You're right. I'm sorry, really it's not your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver. I've been driving a hearse for 25 years."
The Situation in Hell
The following is supposedly an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following:
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.
As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different Religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.
With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.
This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "it will be a cold day in Hell before I go out with you", and take into account the fact that I went out with her last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over.
The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct . . . leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."
