My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I write in English, because, well, a lot of travellers around that might be fun to have a drink with. I am, however Dutch by nature.
----------------------
I think we could be great friends (++?) if you like any of these (one or two will do, I'm not addicted to sny):
Weird thoughts spoken aloud; doing stuff because you feel like it; technology and/or science; LEGO (and/or the First organisation); Games (table-top and/or computer); light or moderate, sarcasm; thoughts that may sometimes be a few steps ahead of words; being impulsive, sometimes even if there's not that much time; buying something, just because it made you think of someone; brains that have no "off" setting; helping people because it feels good.

And if you like animations, that secretly explain stuff: https://twitter.com/SciencePorn/status/517043875316506624/photo/1

And many, many more.

Also if you think OKCupid used to be a lot more interesting before Match.com bought it.

To prove I'm not scared of hearing from you, I'm happy for any of you to attempt some cyber stalking:
(even if this website suddenly wants you to pay $5 because you might be a year older or younger than what I set in my search options - why I decided to expand my age range, hope it doesn't turn out to look mega desperate, but I'm not for extortionism).

Enjoy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I cycle. Often and far, but irregularly.
I am a freelance engineer, puzzle solver and recently also engineer in part-time payroll. My brain is good at seeing patterns and lack thereof.

I also sometimes ride off on my motorcycle going nowhere in particular, to get away from stuff.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think:
1. Thinking/puzzling.
2. Solving/helping.
3. Mechanics.
4. Fine motor-skills (Finger-spitzen Gefühl usw).
5. Boolean thinking/machine thinking.
6. Driving a motorcycle.
This was the one where you needed six right?

By the way: They are in arbitrary order, it's hard enough to think them up, let alone sort them by level of skilfulness.
P.S.: 7. Subverting OKC questions for my own dark enjoyment... Sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know.
I think maybe that I'm witty, think straight and sideways at once and never fear giving my opinion when needed or asked? (which is not to say I always have strong opinions, may even have less than average, but when I do, I want to be honest)
I'm told I can be intimidating, which sucks, because I can be insanely shy about first contact from time to time and don't quickly think less of people with different skills or interests if they can hold a conversation (I'm only half a Sheldon).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Generally in my life I try what intrigues me and I try to remember what I enjoyed. Although with some subjects it's a little daunting.

I cook. I do it well. But I like many kinds of food in all kinds of situations. Especially if it's lovingly cooked, you'll be hard pressed to make me something I won't eat.
After a while in Lao I can confirm: There's stuff I find very hard to eat. Luckily even there they're only a very tiny part of a meal of loads that I will.

Books: Good stories, with above average plot lines. Preferably something Sci-Fi/Fantasy-ish. But I greatly Enjoy Kathy Reichs' Tempe Brennan stories and such as well.
(Yes, she wrote the books first...)

TV: Before reading this list: I have some kind of TV or show on all day when working from home, because I work better in a "living environment" (random sounds or voices) and I seem too stupid to trick someone into staying. So... it is a lot, but I'm just an awesome multitasker (<-- this is a lie I need to explain live):
Anything from the UK with any number of the following: Richard Ayoade, Jon Richardson, Stephen Fry, Bill Bailey, Phil Jupitus, Noel Fielding, Dara O Briain, David Mitchell, Richard Ayoade, Chris O'Dowd, Hugh Laurie (If you don't know he's a Brit, you need to borrow some of my DVDs), Frankie Boyle ("Racist Door"), Sean Lock ("Spine in a sack"), Rob Brydon, did I mention Richard Ayoade? Also just about anything originally hosted by Angus Deayton. And John Hannah, yesss! to A Touch of Cloth! And Karen Gillan is starting to proof herself as well. (I do also like most of the Doctor Who, but that cast keeps changing)
*I removed Jimmy Carr, because I feel I've seen all his looping jokes by now*

But also many non-UK based shows, amongst which: X-Files, Better off Ted, House, Chicago Fire, ST-TNG (Deal with it! I'm awesome, but also a nerd), Body of Proof, American Dad (usually), Family Guy (often), Futurama (See ST-TNG), Californication, Dead Like Me, The Finder, Fargo, Franklin and Bash, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Late Late with Craig Ferguson, Modern Family, The Daily Show, New Girl, Orange is the New Black, Firefly (again, see ST-TNG).

Also, in the case of music: Anything that isn't easily replicated by slamming one's head repeatedly into a cheap late-90's keyboard. Examples? Postmoden Jukebox (YouTube), Ingrid Michaelson (YouTube), Maria Mena, Regina Spektor, Enya, Anouk, Elton John, Ilse DeLange, Yello (Yello? Yes! Yello!) and most others that fit that pattern.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There's a lot I really, really prefer to not do without.

But with just water and basic foods that nourish I'll make it anywhere eventually.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All. None.

It includes thoughts like (for your own sanity, I advise you skip this list, but for full and open honesty, I'll keep it for now):

- Am I changed a lot in the last year? Should I let people know?
- Where can I best hide my thoughts, once they have foolishly left the front of my face?
- Who keeps stealing my fresh air when I'm not home?
- For people looking just for friends in the range of 20 to 29, would it be acceptable if I promise to never act any older than 20?
- Would cookies taste better baked vertically?
- Should I make time to invent vertical drip cookies?
- What can I do to further improve the coffees that I make?
- If you colour everywhere outside the lines, are you not just colouring inside the lines again?
- Would my walls look better in Crayola colours?
- Can you be accused of having lost your mind if you know where you left it, but just refuse to use it?
- How many cordless drills would I need to turn my motorcycle into a zero-bike?
- How many coffee beans can one guy ever need in his life and why do I have twice that amount? ((Update: I recently found the answer: They keep making more flavours to blend with and I can't finish bags quick enough on my own...))
- Would there be people that want to invest in an electronic shower tap that helps you be more economic with water and energy?
- Kicksketball!
- What?
- Duck faces belong on ducks, not women. Maybe little girls.
- Fact!: Gouda Cheese is coloured using refined mango juice.
- Fact!: Richard Dean Anderson has an irrational fear of pocket knifes.
- Fact!: Stephen Root is allergic to post-its!
- Fact!: Every pencil wanted to grow up to be a crayon!
- Fact!: Milk is bleached cheese suspended in water!
- Fact!: Clocks used to run the other way BC, but Jesus didn't like that, because years should count up!
- Fact!: Good hugs taste of milk chocolate!
(Having seen some Dwight Schrute will help appreciate those facts more)
- Should I be less honest? Is honesty overrated?
- Does anybody care that "You don't know what you've got, until it's gone" is a temporal inaccuracy?
- Should I just become a full time bartender?
- How long are you allowed to stare at someone much younger?
- Should I stop trimming my facial hair? Should I shave it all off again?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
very disappointed about finally having established "a typical Friday night".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really try not to, but I read a lot of user names in the worst way possible.

I like touching hair and having it touched. Shh! (Not in a creepy way! I think... Or I'm too creepy by nature to see it .. >.< )

I honestly like giving massages. It's a very well kept secret too.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
First and Foremost (new note): You understand that I recently re-adjusted my "I'm looking for" age range, because I found that the greedy bastards at Match have now decided to ask $5 of people that fall outside the range by more than a year or two and I like to make new friends.

There isn't an angry goblin preventing you from clicking the button.

Or if there is, but you have something to tell me.

And if you are aware that growing and/or shaving off of facial hair is something relatively easy to do for a man. I don't understand this whole "you may not currently have facial hair" or "you have to have..." thing some of you have going on. It's not an incurable urge to kill anyone you meet, it's hair... Although once I have not trimmed for a while I can see the confusion, if I'm honest.

You are not allowed to leave without sending a message if you can laugh uncontrollably about the tiniest things, have an engaging smile, like to try a different path once in a while and/or have dazzling eyes -- I'm sometimes amazed at how unique eyes can be --. I'm buying you a drink!
