This Peeperkorn sounds like the ambassador who will unite all of the Atlas.  There's something in his interests for all us.

Hahaha, yeah, I'm kind of eclectic.

Hi, people. I'm from Uruguay, the unknown "Switzerland of America". I'm also an unseccesful student of International Studies and Political Science. As a freak of elections across the world (and "american" elections in particular), I've been reading the forum since a long time ago, incluiding the Atlasia funny nonsense (you should update the wiki).

My ideologý, if I have one, is very liberal in social issues (my country is historically the most secular in the continent) and kind of "third-way" in economics.  

I know I should sympathise with democrats (besauce of ideology), buy I prefer the republicans because they're nuts.

Forgive my poor english (I'm an excellent reader but a bad writer), and thank you Lief for your signature (any link with Uruguay or you just love Forlán ?). I will use a Massachusetts avatar 'cause my parents met and got married there.

Gender: Male (gay)
Race/ethnic compostion: Caucasian.
Religion: Agnostic.

Favorite Band: Radiohead, Pixies, The Smiths, The Cure, Belle & Sebastian, The Kinks, The Who, Genesis of Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and a long etcétera.
Favorite President: John Adams and Nixon.
Favorite Sports team: Peñarol.

Hey generic,

You're 24, German-Irish, a history major, a philosophy buff and a fan of Carl Sagen?

In my book, that run-down is all-win.  Cheers!

'Freedom Fighter', which means 'I approve' (roughly). The forum has its own dialect. 'Horrible Person' (or 'HP') is its opposite.
