Mental Irregularities

Bio

uhh...

I am a 21 year old guy who still lives with his parents. I'm rather tall and find it pretty shocking every time I meet somebody who's taller than me. I am a Berliner (not like that fake-Berliner whatwashisname Kennedy but a real Berliner who was born in Berlin and lives in Berlin and will probably for his entire life because it's far too inconvenient to move from here). Berlin lies in Germany. It is, in fact, the capital of Germany. But this got nothing to do with me. I just want to educate you.

I study Physical Engineering at the TU Berlin.

I play tabletennis since I was about 9 or 10 years old, I can't really remember anymore, and it's quite shocking how bad I am regarding how long I played it. I'm volunteering (quite) to coach the children of my tabletennisclub, which can be pretty annoying, because children are annoying (I'm rather impressed at how most of the 14 years and younger ones at this site can act quite mature compared to the ones I know IRL, so to say)I also am a tabletennis umpire, licensed and everything. I draw tabletennis cartoons for the website of my club and a tabletennis comic, too. But only tabletennis players can understand them properly. And they have to speak German, too, I'm afraid.

I do not talk often but when I talk I tend to talk too much (there is a complicity between these two attributes of mine)

Sometimes my attitude gets rather arrogant without me realising it. Later, I will feel bad about it because I usually don't like arrogance.

I like sheeps. Their dumbness is just adorable.

I love reading books.

I also read many mangas.

I play many flash games.

I eat too much.

I procrastinate way too much (right know when I'm writing this I should really learn for an exam the next day)

mathematician jokes
(most of them do better in German(because my translation skills suck))

-How does a mathematician trap the whole world? - He draws a circle around himself and defines himself as *outside*.

-An experimental physician, a theoretical phyisician, a biologist, a theologist and a mathematician are going into a bar. There is a room in the back, which is entered by 10 people and after a time 11 people leave the room. *Ah,* says the experimental physician *no problem: that is the normal observational error.* *That would have been a tunnelling then*, says the theoretical physician. *It is natural for humans to procreate, afterall* says the biologist. *A miracle! A miracle!* claims the theologist. *Well*, says the mathematician *if now somebody enters the room, it would be empty.*

-There are three kind of people in this world: The ones who can count and the ones who cannot.

-How does a mathematician water flowers with an empty water can? - He takes the watercan, goes to a water tap, puts the can under the tap, opens the tap, waits until the watercan is full, closes the tap and then waters the flowers. How does a mathematician water flowers with a full watercan? - He empties the can and reduces the problem to something already known.

-An engineer, a physician and a mathematician stay at an inn. The inn catches fire. What do they do? The engineer takes the extinguisher, extinguishes the flames and goes back to sleep. The physician tries to measure the temperatur of the flames to find out if they are really hot enough to be a threat and burns up. The mathematician seeks the extinguisher, finds him and, there was a problem, there is a solution therefore everything is perfectly fine, goes back to sleep and burns up.
