About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try as many things as possible, if we cant laugh about everything, then, we will laugh about nothing.

ABOUT ME

See that geeky, lazy fat student ? Could be me.
(No photo available because i couldn't find one on my computer...)
I'm a being full of paradox. As i love nothing more than trying new stuff and cant live far away from a computer for a long time, i still shave myself with a straight razor and listen to vinyl. I studied a wide range of subjects back in my "prepa" days, from maths to sociology. I'm quite curious about averithing, and that's why i love encountering people with which i can talk about various subjects. As i dont do much sports, i got a lot of time to read, watch films, search random stuff on the internet and hang out with friends.
I'm not a fully social animal but this helps me fitting in almost every social background.
I'm often ironic when talking. I love giving people a shock. When shocked, people just express their feelings, and that's a good point to start talking and thinking about the real bases of their beliefs. But never take it to seriously, life is made to have fun, and even if serious things can be a way to have fun, dont be bothered too much by them. I never mean harm so if i did harm you by any mean,just say it to me and it should not happen again.
Dont take the previous sentence as an imperative, if i'm atacked, i can be as violent as the next man, be it with words or something else.

PHILOSOPHY

Laughing is the only univesal panacea, so i think we should wiew the universe as a big joke, be it created by god or by nature, proofs of humor are everywere, and only it will save us from despair when we look at human behavior.
The world is a big thing, and we got things to discover everywhere, be it on the next corner ot 10 000 Kms away from home. Meeting people and trying new stuff is a great way to fill a life up to the top.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfing and hosting if possible

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Never couchsurf with strangers before, but that's a new thing, new people, I got to try it !

Interests

Eating, that's one of the best things in life. Nothing best than a good meal with some local alcohol and some friends to share all of it. I love discovering new things and i can eat almost everithing (the only things i cant stand are some kind of seafood, a few cheeses and diches based on vinegar) and i love cooking. As an host or a couch surfer, be sure i'll cook some exquisite meals for you, just because i like it.
Reading, mainly sci-fi and fantasy, but also theater and poesy.
Music, a wide range of music from japanese traditional music to death metal.
A lot of geeky/nerdy interests as RPG, wargames, boardgames, specific tv shows and stuff

Music, Movies, and Books

Any books written from : Terry pratchett, Douglas Adams, Hp Lovecraft, Victor Hugo, David and leight Eddings, Peter F Hamilton, George RR Martin, Robin Hobb, Tim Powers, and countless others i cant remember at the moment.
Your music collection cant be complete without some Led Zeppelin LP's, one or two Black Babbath (paranoid and Black Sabbath, for example) and maybe, you should discover Judas Priest music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've done some crasy things in my short life, but my two favorite are the folowing :
-Being dragged at the end of a leash by a girl in one of the most touristic street of Paris while dressed as an S&M sex Slave as a result of a bet and doing it again in Montpellier when trying every pub and bars of the town.
-Spending 3 days in deep amazonian jungle to see wildlife.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm ready to learn whatever people want to teach me.
I could teach you French cooking and a lot of little useless things that could cross my mind.
I'm willing to share as much as YOU want to.
