Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm several years into single life after 20 years of marriage and
raising my son. Actually, simi-single would be more accurate since
I have a girlfriend living with me. I like to shoot pool
, play poker
, and hang out with friends. I'm a
a conservative town, but i like a good debate so it works for me
most of the time.
Apparently I should move to Austin to be with my own kind. I get
along better with women than men, once it's understood I'm not
chasing anything, so this site seems like a good place to find new
I have an unusual opinion about religion, or what passes for it now
days. I prefer science and hope quantum mechanics will eventually
explain why positive thought works miracles and good triumphs over
evil (for lack of better terms).
I am progressive, philosophical, and pragmatic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do research work for the University, dragging imaginative designs
into the real world by whatever means necessary.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Miniature machine work (like watch makers), pool and poker, and
making other people feel good about themselves (unless we're
playing pool or poker).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone told me I have a way of smiling inappropriately, or
something like that. It's sort of a possum grin at that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All time favorite, probably the Hobbit. Favorite authors are Kurt
Vonnegut, Tom Clancy, Dean Koontz, Michael Crighton.
Movies - Forest Gump may be all time favorite. Sci-fi and special
effects are my usual, like the first Star Wars, Star Trek,
Armagheddon, The 300, IronMan. I like the new animated movies too,
like Wall-E, Shrek, even Toy Story, mostly for the technology
behind the effects i think.
Music - Rush is definitely all time favorite, and other progressive
rock bands like Tool, System of a Down, Staind, Disturbed,
Nickelback. I also like classical, especially the more dramatic
stuff from Tchaikovski, Holst, Beethoven, Vivaldi.
Food - I can appreciate a really fine meal but I'm satisfied with
almost anything. Definitely an omnivore. Steak is a favorite,
shellfish the least, except shrimp.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could do without almost anything, although losing my son would be
the most devasting by far.
It would be hard to do without clean water, food, electricity,
transportation, companionship, and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The need for society to grow up and learn to sustain itself and for
today's inhabitants to start caring about tomorrow's. Also, a
scientific definition of consciousness or sapience, and the
"Singularity" (google it).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Shooting pool or laughing with friends, and drinking beer.
