"No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk. What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it." ~ Thomas Sowell

I live in San Diego, California, but that is not my home. It is only a temporary place to keep my things and to provide a semi-permanent residence for my far-less-transient-than-me wife. I don't know if I even have a "home" anymore.
By day, I travel to exotic locales and repair exotic scientific instruments. By night, I play whatever electronic game has captured my interest recently, or read all those books that I was supposed to have read when I was in school.

I learn things recreationally, despite not being very good at it.
