What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

I'm a grad student who works on that awesome intersection between evolution and animal behavior--not to be confused with an evolutionary psychologist, please. I like history, nerd stuff, and ladies.

This year has been pretty rough on me, and I'm tackling some mental health shit--like I bet lots of folks are right now. I'm therefore being really bad about timely responses to MeMails and emails. It's really not you, it's me, but I do read everything that I get! It's just--the nicer you are to me, the less likely I am to muster up the bravery to respond.

I have a Patreon now. And a Ko-Fi, if you'd like to buy me a drink.
