    What about IQ the movie? and Proof the movie?

    The main characters in those are female nerds.

    Also on the TV show Bones.

    I suppose these are more rare than the Sci-Fi male-nerd (anti)heroes, however.

    For the next 5 years I'd live like a pauper, using my whopping financial power to accumulate enough to enjoy the following *next* 50 years in any manner I saw fit. That would certainly include a lot of travel, reading, writing, and taking classes on whatever subjects I felt like at the time. At 45, I'd probably be doing the same types of things, perhaps settling down a bit or going into public service.

    Star Wars, Please Understand Me, ... can't really think of a third that qualifies.

    No, I don't see any evidence that God(s) exist(s), and prefer a more scientific approach to life in general. I believe that appreciation of curiosity, wonder, love, beauty, etc. are simply part of being human and can enrich us.

    Politics, Truth, and the Status Quo in America: An investigation of what it takes to get elected to high public office in America, how policy decisions really get made, and who benefits most directly and indirectly. (I don't pretend to know all of this myself, but I would like to.)

    2. If money wasn't a problem, what would you do with the next 5 years of your life? Where would you be at age 45 in this same scenario? (paint a picture for me) (6 sentences max) Money isn't a problem for the enxt five years of my life because I'll still have the financial support of my parents to some degree, but I'll answer anyway.

    I suppose I'd like to do a veriety of things to gain experience and enlightenment to help me write novels, songs, ect. This would involve education (not neccessarily formal), travel, experience, love, no-strings-attatched sex, ect.

    At 45 I'd like to have a family and otherwise be doing the same thing (except the no-strings-attatched sex would have strings). I can imagine myself maybe being a cool ENTP style professor, too.
    3. What 3 books and/or movies had the most impact on your life? (one line) Chronicles by Bob Dylan, Don Quixote by Cervantes, Art of War by Sun Tzu, and... a friend and teacher of mine (ENTP) who, although not a book or movie, has had a large impact on me. KRS-One (INFX?), too. Not a book or movie, but he's inspirational. These things don't have huge influence on me, they just give me ideas to think about.
    4. Do you believe in God? Why/why not?(2 sentences max) I'm agnostic. I think there could be a god, or several, but I am not in a position to decide that there is or isn't.
    5. Pretend you had to film a documentary. What would it be on? Doesn't have to be an area of your current expertise. (2 sentences, include title)
    Great question...

    I'm not really sure, but I think it would probably have to be something that would inspire people.
    Good questions!

    4) No. I'm going to need to see some evidence.

    The same, but. . .

    1) Not 24, and not female.
    3) They did impact my life (they did for her as well, she just doesn't want to admit it).
    5) I'd make sure that documentary had sex scenes and a lot of bikini's.

    1. 21/M/NC/Single
    2. Considering I'm bound by a contract to the military to stay put where I am for the next 2 years, I don't have a lot of options. If the military wasn't an issue, I'd be back in the bay area, CA or Seattle, WA making friends, playing music, learning hockey, going to shows, camping, taking some college classes, being stupid etc. Would also like to get over to Europe and explore. At 45, I'd like to be settled into a career (preferably in law enforcement), have a couple kids and happily married to a beautiful and awesome lady.
    3. Star Wars, Star Wars, Star Wars (haha)
    4. A thinking force more powerful than humans, possibly. The compassionate/loving god depicted in the Bible, no.

    earlier various bad jokes about Asians and eating dogs


    Please refrain in the future from making unnecessary ignorant comments. Save it for people you know will find it funny (e.g. your RL friends) I now officially have ZERO PATIENCE for unwittingly walking into inoccent looking threads and having to read bullshit like that.

    Alrighty, back on track.

    2. If money wasn't a problem, what would you do with the next 5 years of your life? Where would you be at age 45 in this same scenario? (paint a picture for me) (6 sentences max)
    S1) First off, I would go to Europe and study-travel and revel in being a snobby European trained polygot.

    S2)I would be a full-time epicure and get private topclass training in self-defense, rock climbing, equestrian riding, dance...and weaving aka 'textile arts'

    S3)I would be a full time performer (at least for a little while), go to LA and be a make-up artist/stylist and then go to NYC and get a degree in fashion design and start my own line of clothing.

    S4)Then I'd write, direct, and produce my own films -- hell I'll start my own studio.

    S5)Somewhere in the middle of all this I'd live a life of such excess, debauchery, and unbridled hedonism that I become physically disgusted with myself, go to a celebrity rehab spa, and find religion.

    S6)By age 45 I would be living a richly creative and rewarding life surrounded by a wide circle of loving friends, family, and pets and working on a memoir.

    3. What 3 books and/or movies had the most impact on your life? (one line)
    Some Disney read along collection? That's how I learned to read. My momma really wanted me to master English and I did.

    Yes.

    Veganism through a cross-cultural and medical perspective. It's a controversial issue as more people of color become visible in the old school 'green movement' and hippiedom gets mainstreamed.

    Is also an Asian woman.

    Has an urge to rattle cages.

    Feels tempted to make a joke about Asians devouring man's best friend.

    2. If money wasn't a problem, what would you do with the next 5 years of your life? Where would you be at age 45 in this same scenario?

    Continue on with my education through grad school. Travel around the world. Overcome procrastination once and for all ( ). Stay healthy. Keep an open mind, learn and challenge myself whenever possible.

    Age 45: Hopefully, I'd be well into the career I desire. I might think about adopting a child - by then, I would probably have explore enough of life to want to become a parent.
