Sounds harmless enough.
Location: Currently in Boston, MA for school, but my heart is still back at home in Maplewood, MN (near St. Paul).
Marital Status: Single
Religion: Christian, Protestant I guess, but I don't think it's really important whether you're Protestant, Catholic, or Orthodox. I think it's rather unfortunate that politics and personal rivalries have made such divisions, but I think most people are able to get past these differences most of the time.
Drink/Smoke: Can't stand the taste of alcoholic drinks and I find smoking repulsive.
Likes: Music, music, and music. I may be on an anime forum, but I spend way more money and time on music than on anime. I mostly shop for used CDs since they're cheaper although I guess that doesn't support the artists. But most of the bands are broken up or something anyway. I still buy new CDs frequently, though. More often newer releases by bands that still exist. These three links should be able to give you a good idea about my taste in music if you explore them thoroughly enough. I also like to be very precise and over-analyze things. Well, maybe it's not so much something that I like as it's just something that I do. See? I'm being precise! I think this is why most of my recent posts have just been correcting factual errors. I like reading sci-fi and fantasy novels too I guess.
Dislikes: Bad music. I won't be any more specific so we don't need to start any ugly arguments or debates. Also, seafood.
Favorite anime: Full Metal Panic! & sequels
Favorite game: I'm not really much of a gamer. I tend to prefer real-time strategy Japanese style RPGs.
Fun facts about one3rd: Fun facts? I'm not so sure if there are any. I played in a band, now broken up, for about a year called Arsenal Of Venice. I don't feel bad about plugging it since the band is broken up! I left the band so I could attend music school in Boston and I should be done in December.
Pictures: I don't really have many pictures of myself. Here's one of me that looks like a disembodied head. I suppose it's fairly obvious that the picture was altered with some photo editing software.
Location: Inn of the Last Home
Well, why not. If Bamboo says she thinks it would be fun I can play along. I'm a sucker for cute women in authority. I'm the same as Delta, wanna know anything else (not sure why you would) just ask. Pics may or may not follow, gotta find some first then determine if I wanna embaress myelf that much.
Name: Redbeard, Mario Batali, Iron Chef Psycho, or just Sean
Location: Maryland (USA)
Marital Status: In a relationship with a beautiful and wonderful woman.
Age: I'm 28
Ethnicity: About 60% Irish and 40% Scottish. It also seems someone in my family got into the Navajo wood pile.
Blood Type: I am O+ and I donate at least once a year, usually twice.
Pets: I live with my gf's 2 cats Sammy and Boo. My dog Frosty lives with my parents. When I moved out the last time (3rd time lol) I left her with them as they could use her company and vice versa. I live 10 minutes away so I see her plenty.
Drink/Smoke: I drink all the time but I'm not an alcoholic though. I just like to drink my liquor. Lots of people love soda, I love rum, vodka, and lots of other drinks. Don't smoke cigs but sometimes an occasional cigar.
Likes: Anime duh lol. I also like drinking, bowling, shooting pool, watching movies, collecting all sorts of junk (I'm a packrat), going to concerts, hanging with friends, making money, and my number one thing to do is cook. Pretty good at it too.
Dislikes: Arrogant people, back stabbing cheating people, alcoholics, any sort of bigot or racist, animal abusers, bugs (god I can't stand bugs), and people who needlessly waste food. Also dislike people who thrive on and love putting down others behind their backs but won't say anything to their faces. Like my ex gf Andrea for example.
Favorite anime: Oh My Goddess, "X", Haibane Renmei, Vampire Hunter D:Bloodlust, Fatal Fury, 12 Kingdoms, You're Under Arrest, Samurai X, Ninja Scroll, Ai Yori Aoshi, Getbackers, Black Lagoon, Kurau, Witchblade, Hellsing Ultimate, Claymore, Shuffle, Tehxnolyze, K-On, Clannad, and Street Fighter II V

Fun facts about the Psycho:
I wear pretty much nothing else but Hawaiian shirts in the summer and fall.
I have a fairly good sized historical weapons collection.
I love to cook and can make almost any kind of dish from any country.
I would love to one day learn Gaelic and Latin.
I plan to travel to a new spot around the world every 3 years once I turn 30. I wanna see the world (or what's left of it at that point).
I am an avid anime figure collector. Mostly resin and PVC models. My collection has expanded over the years to the point of needing it's own room.
Photos: So the old photo of me is no more. This one however is from a week ago at my friends wedding, I'm the second on the left. The one who looks like Mario Batali.
edit--- So after several years I figured it was time for an update.

Thanks. I have been blessed/cursed with looking young. While in middle and highschool it was a curse, however once you creep up on 30 years old and still look like a college student.....it is my blessing and I hope to stays with me for as long as possible LOL
Location: China (Searching for Jusenkyo)
Thread hasn't been disproved of by mods and decided it would be fun to come up with my own bio, so I did, so I might as well post it.
Name: Past (who dislikes the name she was born with so we'll just use my forum username)
Sex: TG - MtF
Location: Nebraska, USA
Marital Status: Single never married, have dated but not in a relationship right now.
Sexual Orientation: pansexual (I'm attracted to people for their personality. Sex, gender and other physical attributes are irrelevant to me).
Age: late 30's
Religion: None (atheist)
Drink/Smoke: Likes tequila, beer, rum and drinks alot of Coke with or without alcohol. Non-smoker and annoyed by 2nd hand smoke.
Likes: All animals except for rednecks . Hobbies: anime, music (classical, techno. reggae, R&B, J-pop, classic rock, J-rock, goth/industrial, and others), singing, cooking (but I can't bake cookies to save my life), nature and am an avid treehugger.
Dislikes: Probably the thing I hate the most is waste, as in things like objects and money. It's all about the 3 R's. Hates all types of sports with a passion, except martial arts if you consider that a sport. Foods I dislike: pineapple, watermelon, mustard, beef, garlic, mountain dew, sweet things and cold things (except for cold beer or soda), yogurt, cream cheese, vodka (one of the few liquors I dislike - and I'm Swedish). Other dislikes: Country music, Christian music.
Favorite Rock Bands: Pink Floyd, Yes, Smashing Pumkins, Larc~en~Ciel, Journey, Def Leppard and Stabbing Westward. And the song I consider my theme song if there was a show about me: Enjoy the Silence by Depeche Mode.
Favorite Anime: Fushigi Yuugi, Angelic Layer, Hunter X Hunter (lots of others but these are my top 3).
Video Games: don't play much based on not having the time to do so, but I like RPG and puzzle video games and am a PS/PS2/PSP devotee (have never owned game systems other than Sony ones). Favorite game: FFVI. Next game: expecting to get Legend of Heroes III for PSP which will possibly make up the extent of my future gaming time. Also likes Blizzard PC games (but then again don't have time).
Favorite Foods I: Mexican, used to be Italian and Japanese food has always been a close 2nd or 3rd. I am another person who really likes chicken (most favorite meat), but I also love crab and most other seafood/fish. Plus I very much dislike beef and can't stand canned tuna. If it's fresh baked or smoked tuna it's fine but for some reason canned tuna I find repulsive.
Favorite Foods II: Sushi, orange juice, and tends to enjoy food best plain with few addons like toast and butter, cheese pizza, ham and cheese sandwiches, coffee black or with a little milk.
Things I dislike about myself: Tend to not respond or interact well with authority. That's pretty much why I have the job I have right now, I get to be a real slacker but I also have a good work ethic as long as I don't have to deal with actually reporting to a "boss" on an hourly basis.
Things I like about myself: Usually very forgiving of people who treat me bad, and end up making good friendships with people I originally started out hating.
Not so interesting or fun facts about Past: Originally from Hawaii, have lived all over the U.S. and got a degree in Environmental Biology from SUNY in New York. Although I have been to Japan and love Japanese culture I would have to say my favorite country is Spain and fell in love with it after visiting, and plan to someday live there.
Maybe interesting fact about Past: has a relatively high tolerance to heat and natural toxins, poisons, etc.
Sorry no photos of Past (coming soon maybe...)

Location: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Marital status: married
Drink/Smoke: Neither. I drink a glass of champagne at new year's, but I hate cigarette smoke. I can make a fool of myself perfectly sober, as you all know.
Favorite music: I listen to pretty much everything, except Country & Western (so sue me). At the moment I'm going through a big J-Rock phase.
Favorite sports: Don't watch any. Can't avoid ice hockey here though.

Favorite manga: D. Gray-Man, Loveless, Banana Fish, Monster, Naruto, Bleach, Antique Bakery, NANA (in no particular order)
Likes: Friends, hanging out with them and chatting about nothing and everything. Yoga, the spiritual and physical calmness it brings me. Cosplay and cons, meeting new people and being amongst fellow geeks.
Dislikes: Stupidity. Ignorance. Unwillingness to learn. Spoilers. Seriously, you know those.
Fun facts about kolibri: Although I'm a complete geek, work in an office and code for living, I'm also a qualified yoga teacher and I teach yoga and meditation part time. So maybe that fact is not too fun, but maybe it's interesting? Also even though I live in Canada I'm not Canadian - I'm actually originally from Finland, although I haven't lived there for ten years. Was that fun? No? Well, how about this - kolibri means "humming bird" in several languages, including Finnish. It's a nickname my hubby gave me because I'm "small and briliant" - aww? I'll shut up now.
Ooh, look photos:
Yes, Delta, summer comes to Canada too.
Blond? I can do blond!
And a mandatory yoga photo
