High school biology. Critical thinking skills. Questioning everything, especially when the word "truth" is used.
Meeting people of like mind, attending events without having to fake believer status. TAM pretty much convinced me to get more politically active, too.
A fair amount of sarcasm, a bit of banter, and a drama-free zone.
Skeptic, atheist, writer, stand-up comedy nerd, and sometime karaoke enthusiast. Attended my first TAM this year.
