Hello there. I am Plubbingworth. I am twenty, and I first caught wind of the delicious stench of Rationality all the way from where I was before, but only after I began to seek it. HILARIOUS COINCIDENCE: I read about the Less Wrong Community and read HPMOR completely separately without realizing the connection, how funny is that?!

Anyway. I was reading and absorbing and learning as much as I could from every facet of this wonderful website, when I realized, to my dismay, that there was not much of a concentration in the use of Rationality in this fine state of Tennessee. Which is a real shame. Maybe something should be done about that!

I can't say what I plan to learn from this. Time and effort will tell. But a sense of community is always nice. Also, I felt like a creeper.

Welcome to LW! Nice to see another Knoxvillian. But we've been talking via PM, so I won't continue that conversation here.
