Here is some interesting stuff:
Hi there, I'm Erik.

Below is some information that I feel is important:


About Me: I'm a programmer, statistician, math dude, student and an all-around okay person. I'm currently going to university to achieve dual degrees in Computer Science and Statistics, then I plan on getting a master's degree in Statistics. I'm currently working on a research project for my university using the Perl and Python programming languages in conjunction with molecular modeling. I have [some] experience with Java, C++, C, Python, MATLAB, Julia, and R. I have interests in mathematics, chemistry, weird facts, history, data science, machine learning and information about Half Life [the game].

I used to be involved in a variety of fandoms, but I have gone away from a lot of that now because of how busy I tend to be. When I do get the chance to play games, I usually play with Garry's Mod, Team Fortress 2, Half Life (1 and 2) and Grand Theft Auto IV. I am a techie and I love to collect weird electronics. Probably the weirdest thing I own is a 1956 Friden STW-10 calculator that weighs about 40 pounds and can only do basic arithmetic. I especially love calculators, like the Friden. I also own a TI-89 Titanium CAS, TI-84, TI-nspire CX, Casio fx-9750gii, Casio Personal Mini, Casio fx-260 Solar and a Casio Wristwatch Calculator. I have a small GameBoy collection, including the original GameBoy, GameBoy Pocket, GameBoy Color and GameBoy Printer/Camera. I'm working on trying to get a GameBoy Light. I like to fiddle around with Raspberry Pi's. I also like to collect weird books, such as "Radiation Protection" by Jacob Shapiro and "Multiwavelength Astrophysics" by France Cordova, as well as a growing college Textbook collection. Some textbooks I own include Calculus, Physics, Spanish, Chemistry, Java Programming Language, Organic Chemistry, iOS App Development, and a Physics pocket manual. This will definetly grow. I think I have a problem.

I love music, and I'm very eclectic when it comes to genre. Some of my favorite artists/bands are: Led Zeppelin, The Avalanches, The Wiseguys, Lenny Kravitz, Childish Gambino, Duran Duran, Renard, Radiohead, Soundgarden, The Smashing Pumpkins, Yoshida Brothers, Fatboy Slim, The Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett, Collective Soul and many, many others. Music is the thing that really gets me going, so it's great to do most kinds of work to. I'm a Formula 1 fan, and I've been to a few Grand Prix's. Valve is my absolute favorite gaming company. I enjoy rock climbing and cycling.

I understand that these paragraphs don't really flow well, but I did not want to have a massive run-on paragraph. I had that originally and it was just too big and bulky. If you haven't noticed, writing is not my greatest trait.

PC Specs: Since I see a lot of people giving these, I'll give mine:

Messaging: I'm ususally avaliable to converse with when I'm online, but if I do not respond in a speedy manner or I'm in a game, please don't persist with sending me messages. I'm not ignoring you to be rude, I'm likely just busy.

Adding me as a Friend: Apperently some people cannot read the information box above this. Please leave me a message about why you are adding me as a friend! I know this can be really annoying for some people, but it's just as a way for me to clear spam accounts. However, do be advised that this does not instantly mean you will become my friend. If you don't want to friend request me because of the hassle, please feel free to join my group "Santa Heavy's." I occasionally go on to post updates.

Trading: Unless you have a golden frying pan or you are somebody who I've talked with, I don't want to trade anymore. Sorry, but those days are past for me.

Name Changes: I change my name frequently. I recommend pinning a nickname to me if you add me, as I do not usually announce to people that I have changed names.


That's basically it. This list is subject to change if I feel the need to change it. I hope you have a good day.

I deleted all of the comments that recently asked me for trades. From my suspicions, I believe they were scammers, considering they had private backpacks and links to "their" backpacks. Do not fall for these types of people, as they have been all over the place recently.
