Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.— Winston Churchill –the reason I still play chess with David
My name is Luna, after Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. Luna means moon, so I'm good. Who in their right mind doesn't love the moon?
Anyway. I play chess, as evidenced by my having a profile on a chess site and fluctuating stats of wins and losses. One of the best things about me is that I never lose heart; I have lost nearly 4 out of 5 matches in the five years I've been here, most of them to a guy who is and has always been rated 600 points above me, and yet I keep playing. It's fun.
I'm a girl, despite there being none on the internet; this leads me to consider myself a pioneer of sorts, and all the other women I've met who go online (including my sister) to be figments of my imagination. I chose a unicorn avatar specifically for the purpose of being correctly identified as a girl, but apparently you can have Twilight Sparkles from My Little Pony as your personal picture and still be taken for a guy by any guy you encounter online.
General likes: unicorns, rainbows, Fantasy & Science Fiction books, language books, music that at least *sounds* interesting, Nostalgia Chick, Kindle for some reason, arguing with the guys over in The Atheist group, philosophy.
I don't have favorite languages per se, but right now I find Spanish to be the most interesting one.
Personal philosophy by category:
Metaphysics: Everything exists, unless it doesn't, in which case we can still think about it.Epistemology: The scientific method is really good. Now, if only Mike would agree that it was Roger Bacon came up with it, we could all live in peace, giving credit where it's due.Ethics: BIG fan of pragmaticism. If it doesn't work, why do it?
Said about me:
We should all study the Gospel of Fim: 'And The Lord said unto his flock... "Nah".' ~shahussainkcl
There was a small town in Crimea,
Where you could't drink whisky or beer,
But the Russians said right,
You can all go and shite,
we only drink vodka now here.
