I’m a person who loves novelty and learning new stuff, so I’m always on my RSS feed reading about whatever is happening in the world or in tech or politics or video games etc.. One of my favorite blogs is called "Now I Know," and it's just interesting facts and stories about the world. I also love learning about the people I meet, because new people are always into at least one really cool that you’ve never heard of or paid attention to. I’ve never ridden a horse or baked anything in my life, but now I know all about them because I’m friends with people who have. Also I really don’t take myself too seriously, because what fun would life be if you couldn’t make fun of it?
So let’s see… I’m into healthcare, advocacy, psychology, tech, media, books, politics, video games, adorable cat pictures, economics, and pretty much anything else that catches my eye. I’m that guy who’s always getting super excited whenever I hear about new 3D printer technology, and is always talking about that Paul Krugman or “What If” article that was just posted. I read sci fi/fantasy novels by the pound, but I also love non-fiction books on behavioral economics. Currently I’m working my way through NPR’s list of the 100 greatest sci-fi/fantasy novels of all time.
Also, it was pointed out to me that I have a ludicrous number of explanations in my question/answer section. Apparently that says a lot about me, though I'm not sure what. I do know that I felt compelled to provide explanations for all those basic IQ questions. Mostly it's because I assume that everyone shares my need to have correct answers to everything, which may or may not be foolish. But, if one of mine were wrong, I'd be happy to come across an explanation in someone else's profile that made me realize it, so there you go.
Wiki-Wars (Synesthesia to Stone Fish in only 5 clicks! I rule! Also that is totally a cool and hip way to spend your time.)
Running my own MST3K commentary on movies
I give awesome massages, especially scalp massages. I have busy fingers that always need to be doing things
Reciting movie lines
Calvin and Hobbes quotes
Recalling worthless and obscure bits of information that fit into situations. (Yes, I’m that guy who’s always saying, “Actually I just read a really interesting article about that….” And yes, I’m completely aware that I am the only one who finds it interesting to know that Capsaicin is the chemical responsible for spicy foods, and that it has major potential as an analgesic, that isn't going to stop me from boring you to death with it.)
Convincing people that they really do want to trade wheat for sheep. I mean, you could use it to buy a development card which could be totally worth it! And don't even worry about that wheat, I definitely won't use it to build a settlement exactly where you were planning to go..
I love me some high fantasy, Raymond E. Fiest, Philip Pullman, Patrick Rothfuss, George RR Martin, and Brandon Sanderson are all amazing. As are Kurt Vonnegut, Orson Scott Card, and Neil Gaiman. Loads of other stuff as well, those were just the first few to come to mind.
Also, if you haven’t read Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, I cannot recommend it enough. Trust me.
I like the same suite of shows that pretty much every nerdy guys loves: Community, Futurama, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Dexter, Avatar: The Last Airbender (Korra I haven't quite made up my mind on yet), Game of Thrones, Firefly, etc etc.. I'm a sucker for talent-based reality shows like Top Chef or Face Off. Stewart over Colbert, always.
Top 5 movies: Shawshank, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Dark Knight, 50/50, 500 Days of Summer, things that say Pixar on them, Good Will Hunting, Paprika, Miyazake films (Mononoke Hime in particular). That’s more than 5 and I don’t care.
I love way too many board, video, and card games to list them all. Suffice it to say I buy way more games during Steam sales than I can actually play, but I keep coming back to things like Civ V, Arkham City, Bioshock Infinite, and Mass Effect. I have a ton of indie games like Bastion or Antichamber or Thomas was Alone. I also never quite got over the old SNES classic RPGs, so I still replay Chrono Trigger or Earthbound every once in a while.
As for music, mostly I just let Pandora play on a Mumford and Sons channel, but I’m always happy when they play something by Passion Pit or Miike Snow or Phoenix.
And food. I like food...
Books (Ebooks are better for reading on the go but holy god do I love a house full of books)
Good conversation with smart people
How I would go about ingratiating myself to a medieval-era king using my advanced knowledge of science and technology, should I ever find myself accidentally sent backwards in time. Given time and some medieval funding I'm pretty sure I could build a simple generator from a water-wheel.
You feel like attempting a home made pizza recipe this weekend
You think these 53 terrible jokes are funny
You're generally clever and witty and need someone to appreciate it.
You can toss the conversational ball back. Ladies, I understand you get a lot of crappy messages on here, but if you don't want to reply to me you don't have to. There's no reason to send a one sentence reply that leaves me with nothing to continue the conversation with.
You had an interesting thought recently about the wider cultural implications of class and income distribution in America, and you'd like to discuss it with someone.
You could really use a co-op partner.
Really, if you're looking for someone who will be happy whether we spend an entire day without getting dressed, playing video games having sex and ordering chinese food, or we're plotting a cross country tour of every roadside attraction we can find, I'm the person to call.
And now, to fill space with nerdy jokes
Two bacteria walk into a bar. The bartender says, "We don't serve bacteria in this bar!" the bacteria reply, "Don't worry, we're staph!"
René Descartes is sitting at a bar. The bar tender walks up to him and asks if he would like another drink. Descartes replies "I think not" and vanishes.
Schrodinger's cat walks into a bar..... and doesn't.
