The 'Three Things" meme...

...infected this space while I was gone. I don't see why I shouldn't subject you to it just because I was off in sunny Mexico...

But I'll put it below the fold, so you'll only suffer if you want to.

It's in the Flash Traffic/Extended Entry.

Three things that scare me:
-Being wrong - on important matters
-Bad guys that aim.
-Deep Fried Twinkies. I won't touch 'em. I might like 'em.

Three people who make me laugh:
-Ambrose Bierce

Three things I hate the most:
-Beets. In pretty much any form.
-People who treat their children as lifestyle accessories (h/t, BCR)
-Politicians who think lying to me is "business as usual" or a "good idea"

Three things I don't understand:
-Quantum Physics
-The presumption of Higher Moral Purpose and Stature to the UN.
-People who would rather be ruled by oligarchs than themselves.

Three things I'm doing right now:
-Plotting out a book
-Wishing my SO was here.

Three things I want to do before I die:
-go on an interstellar cruise
-Pick up the remaining continents I haven't visited: Australia and Antarctica
-Have sex. That would be... *more* sex.

Three things I can do:
-Compute straight HE data with only a TFT/GFT, MRE box, and a protractor.
-Torture people by posting out of context pictures of obscure military kit and ask ya "Whatizzit?

Three ways to describe my personality:

Three things I can't do:
-Suffer fools gladly
-Keep my mouth shut

Three things I think you should listen to:

Three things you should never listen to:
-TV news, except for inherently visual events, like sports. War is *not* a sport.
-Politicians, unless they're talking about your money. Remember - it's *yours* not theirs.
-Kossacks and DU'ers.

Three absolute favorite foods:
-Good beef

Three things I'd like to learn:
-Play an instrument
-cabinet carpentry
-gun making

Three beverages I drink regularly:
-See Above.

Three shows I watched as a kid:
-Star Trek
-The Price is Right
-I lived in Germany without US TV for most of my kidhood. That's about it.

Three people I'm tagging:
- Nobody, because that's tiresome, and the meme is aging, anyway.
