Ah. Then I'm probably not your guy (pacifist [:3] ). I'm also not as far Left wing as you. but the left-wing-iness is nice.

I've begun to swing libertarian, which is quite interesting. I'm quite the strange "libertarian" given how much I advocate for the unwinding of business interests in Congress, advocating for war in Iraq, and hating the guts out of both Ayn Rand and Johnson. I personally would vote Clinton, one million times over any other candidate. And, isidewith seems to validate me there, giving me a 92% agreement rating with her.
Although, to be honest, my political views waver from one day to the next. Sometimes, none of the candidates would get above a 60%, and other days Hillary takes the lead.

A lot of my views are libertarian too, but sometimes I find libertarianism goes too far to the point of having no safeguard against tyranny by the majority. Their answer to everything (in the U.S. at least) seems to be "let the states decide", even if the states make unfair and oppressive decisions. Obviously they'd be limited by the Constitution, but sometimes it seems like libertarians aren't willing to take much of a definitive stance on many issues and it comes off a bit amoral and non-committal.

Definitely.

The scariest thing on isidewith is seeing the words "I side with x% with Pence" where x is greater than, or equal to one.

I like to update my information every couple of years or so, so here we are again:

Alias(es): Sangi39 (you can find me online occasionally as Wikim3, but I don't use that at all now)

Location: North Yorkshire, England, UK (if you know the McDonalds just of the A1, you know where I live)

Date of Birth: August 2nd 1989

Gender (or "sex" if you prefer): Male

Sexuality: Bisexual. Outside of close friends and strangers I meet on nights out when visiting said friends, I'm still not completely "out". My family still don't know, and overall, only 1 person I know within about 25 miles of where I live knows.

Marital Status: Still complicated. I'm still married in a legal sense, and still friends with my "ex"-wife. As for other relationships, that's also somewhat complicated. I'm sticking with "roughly single, more or less" [:P]

Education: BA Archaeology 2:1

Occupation: Finally promoted to shift supervisor. It only took 3 years, lol

Political Ideology: I'm still saying "social democrat, sort of". As always, my political positions on a given matter continue to change, as well they should [:)]

Religion: None, atheist. Generally speaking, though, it hardly ever comes up.

Interests: Hmmm, conlanging, obviously, archaeology, history, linguistics, astronomy, physics, anthropology (specifically kinship, marriage, social structure and the like), drinking (mostly with friends, but I will, sadly, drink alone), board games, generally nerdiness really.

Favorite Music: Metal... Black, Death, Groove, Thrash, Doom, Folk, Symphonic, but nothing like Iron Maiden or Metallica and I'm not a huge fan of Black Sabbath either (they're the three bands people have said "oh, like..." most often when I say "Metal"). I also like NDH and NFH, Industrial Metal and even some industrial music in general as well as SOAD and RATM.

Favourite TV Show(s): The Big Bang Theory, Firefly, recently started watching Ash vs Evil Dead, overall though I've kind of fallen behind on watching TV.

Favourite Film(s): Star Wars: Episode IV (can't really go wrong with it), pretty much all of the recent Marvel films and Serenity. Oh, and almost anything by Tim Burton.

Favourite Book(s): I almost exclusively read non-fiction (relating to my interests above), but I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld books (favourites being the Death books and the Watch books) and some of Neil Gaiman's stuff as well.

Natlang Education: GCSEs in Russian (a*) and German (b) (now watch as I remember a total of two words of each [:P]), some Welsh in primary school in southern Wales and two years of French in high school alongside German. I'm currently attempting to learn Icelandic in preparation for Eistnaflug next year [:)]

Favourite Natlang(s): Possibly Old Norse, Faroese and Icelandic as well as Finnish.

Favourite Conlang(s): Purely on the basis of its amazing script, Naduta [:)] Sal's Rawang Ata also seems pretty cool, oh, and Ahzoh's Vrkhazhian

Conlangs: Massively fallen behind on working on them, but the languages of Yantas

Where do you see yourself in ten years?: I'm still struggling with this question. I wanted to do archaeology for so long, but it's been 6 years since I graduated and I can't find the time to volunteer given the hours of my current job. So job-wise I have no idea. Same for relationships, really. Generally speaking, I try not to think about it.
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.

It's been a while since my last update of such things, and a few things have changed, so why not.

Alias(es): vampireshark, bloodbath, and fluffyeel (depending on site)
Location: Grand Duchy of Luxembourg
Date of Birth: 8 June 1990
Place of Birth: Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
Gender (or "sex" if you prefer): Male
Sexuality: Probably somewhere between a 3 and a 5 on the Kinsey scale
Marital Status: Single. Very single.
Education: A.B. in Physics; M.S. in Chemical Physics
Occupation: Officially, I am a chercheur en formation doctorale, which is basically a Ph.D. student with a work contract
Political Ideology: Quite libertarian, with a strong dislike (of varying flavors) for most major candidates in U.S. politics
Religion: Agnostic (though I did put "atheist" on my Indian visa application, but that was because there wasn't a designation for "agnostic" available... yes, there was a question about religious affiliation when I applied for an Indian visa)
Interests: Conlanging/Conworlding, Travel, Numismatics, Languages in general, Delicious food, Foreign countries and cultures, and Designing stuff for conworlds.
Favorite Music: Rock (Fleetwood Mac, Heart, Guns N' Roses, Texas, etc.) into more melodic Metal (Nightwish, Opeth, Lacuna Coil...)
Favorite Film(s): Amélie is still probably one of my favorites... the music, the scenery, and everything about it.
Favorite Book(s): Jurassic Park and The Lost World, Carrie, Christine, the Harry Potter series, the Abarat series... I should start reading more for fun.
Favorite Travel Destination(s): Central France, Slovenia, and the UK
Natlang Education: I minored in French during my Bachelor's and am living in a Francophone country at present; also, I'm learning/have learned German, which is a bit of a long story as well.
Conlangs: Ilian and Telèmor are my most-developed, with Oshaharu and Mis somewhere on the sliding scale of development. Have a few others that've fallen by the wayside.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?: Ideally, still doing research, hopefully in a tenure-track position somewhere. Not really picky where, though Europe'd be nice.
And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise;
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thigh...

Looking for subjects to appear on banknotes. Inquire within.

I know it was only in November last year that I posted here, but I'd say I've changed just enough to warrant an update.

Alias(es): OTheB (and variations including 0TheB and OTʜᴇB)
Location: SW England
Date of birth: 10/8/2000 (DD/MM/YYYY)
Gender: Don't believe in gender... Biological sex is Male. I have a mentally scripted 30min rant on this topic...
Occupation: Y12 Student. I do a tiny bit of freelance bass-playing.
Interests: Computer Programming/Components, Music, Bass, Maths, Obscure punctuation, and definitely not Conlanging and Linguistics⸮
Favorite music: Classical/Modern Orchestral (I like my Beethoven and my Stravinsky), Oriental Electro (Recently discovered and I can't get enough of it), Chiptune, the better side of Dubstep, FUNK!, anything musically interesting that isn't too noisy.
Political ideology: Mid-far Left Utilitarian
Religion: I'd say Atheist, but I really don't care about religions unless someone is preaching either way. I'd side with the Atheist as that's the only side with any coherent case, and the scientific method has kind of shown that no God is the case until we have more evidence. I could rant about this for hours. Generally though, if the person doesn't go on about it, I couldn't care less.
Conlangs: Inyi (didn't work very well), Project Mimal (coming along very nicely)
Other hobbies: Where do I start? Music Playing (Classical on Double Bass and Funk on Bass Guitar)/Writing (I have a go at everything), Programming, PC Building, PC Gaming,
Where do you see yourself in ten years? My aspiration is not to be tied into any job, but instead to just have the time and resources to embark on my own projects. I invent a lot of stuff, but I don't have an income or any free time so I can actually properly research and make any of them :/

I'm continuously surprised by how young many people here are. I was so used to posting on other sites where I was often the youngest member, but it's cool that so many teens are into conlanging. I guess it does start in those years (or younger) for most of us :)
