i like people who impress you on several levels, like being both smarter and funnier than yourself. then again, if everyone was like that, it'd be pretty depressing.

He's great. Seriously. I could go on and on about how he's totally awesome. So, I will.
Legionnaire (that's not his real name) is the best boyfriend ever. He's really nice, and really cute, and super-fun! If he were an animal, he'd be a flying squirrel. That's how awesome he is.

I do believe legionnaire is trying to convert me with his great SGNews articles. Great job and keep them coming. smile

legionnaire is one of my favorite people here. It took me months to be courageous and comment on his journal. It is more than obvious that he is smart as hell. And yes, adorable. Most of us scientists are not nearly as well rounded as legionnaire, so he is pretty refreshing. He is the reason why geeks are the best damn people on the planet. *cough* my current internet crush for the longest time. wink

ps, best tattoo EVER!

You saying good things about me behind my back? wink

Seriously, though. Great guy. Hoping to have a beer with him one day.

From hellynn

Not only is Mike cool as hell but he is smart and he gives GREAt advice.

Once, they hooked Mike up a machine to teach the machine things, but there's was so much stuff in Mike's brain that the machine exploded and caught fire.

True story.

-if you can't tell from his journal entries, this guy is probably the smartest cat on this site. but he's not afraid to slum it a bit and throw back a bunch of beers with a community-college dummy like myself. he is truly the man.

legionnaire has the uncanny ability of using the most intelligent, well researched, and well spoken ways of telling you to shut the fuck up without actually making you mad.

And as long as he keeps the profile pic featuring him looking totally hard and me looking totally dumb, he can do no wrong by me.

From skryche

What hasn't already been said? He's one of them smart mofos, and an incredibly nice person. I let him play with all my favorite toys!

LEGIONNAIRE is extremely well informed and can expound intelligently on subjects both inside and outside of his area of expertise (neurobiology). Definitely the type of guy one would like to have as a friend on or off line. He's great to have on your side in an argument because he is NEVER WRONG.

Better than sliced bread, sexier than a first kiss on a rainy day, and more fun than nailing jello to a tree.

i mean, he's a *scientist* what more do you need to know? except that maybe i know i've rarely encounted someone who can write so well on so many interesting topics. legionnaire always has a great story or a compelling idea - and he presents it in a lucid, accessible manner that makes him the envy of all the hipsters.

Anyone in a state of seeking can never be happy. Only those who are constantly finding are fulfilled. And finding is not something that happens to us- it is something we do.

Very glad to have found you or you me, however that worked. smile kiss

One of the smartest people I know, as well as funny, sexy, thoughtful and incredibly down to earth. I really value his opinions and I am so pleased to have met him. I look forward to many many brunches together.

How is Legionnaire the coolest member on this site (besides my boyfriend who will go unmentioned)?
I will tell you.
1) Because he is genuine. He will not lead you around and make you feel important, cared about, or at all worthy of his attention without meaning it.
2) He is shorter than me, which is something I can deal with. wink
3) He is an amazing writer, editor, and political incindiary device.
4) He knows how the brain works! And if you don't think that's sexy, you have something very wrong with you, and should seek help.
5) He was my first SG Friend. And that says a lot. I am happier every day that I stumbled across his first journal update. He is the coolest.
6) He has a DNA tattoo. Geeks rule.
7) He is super rad in that old 1989 arcade game way.

From rxqueen

Legionnaire are going to drool over Miss Siouxsie Sioux together. I can't wait!

From sean

One of my favorite members of all time, he has helped us create a new section of the site and has really set the bar high for everyone else involved in the section. A truly intelligent, reasonable, skilled and interesting writer.

From liv3

probably the kindest, most down-to-earth person i've come across on the site thus far. smile
