Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a quiet sensible guy. If anything I'm boring, and don't like
people all that much. I know way too many things... from how to
solve a rubic's cube, through to a bizarre variety of paper plane
I'm the type of person that would prefer a rainy afternoon sitting
in front of the fireplace reading a good book, or solving a
particularly interesting puzzle. However, I do like walking
(hiking) about, and don't do it nearly enough as I'd like.
I am fractal, anatidaephobic, and Lagrangian
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in the process of starting a business. It involves writing
software, so I'm in front of the keyboard typing away a large
fraction of the time. If I'm not doing that, then I am pacing round
in circles thinking about what exactly to do next. This
unfortunately, leaves very little time for anything else. (Which is
why I deliberately have not uploaded a photo here. There is no
point getting too many matches right now.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at right-brained things like math, physics, and
computer science. Unfortunately, this means I can out-nerd nearly
anyone. These extreme powers tend to be used for good instead of
I can be extremely funny from time to time. However, the drawback
is that the humour tends to involve obscure high-brow stuff like
Austin Powers movies. Having to explain jokes leads to the inverse
problem of superlative unfunniness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have too many Stephen Baxter books, and wish they didn't all have
depressing endings. Greg Egan is a nice author as well, but his
characterizations aren't quite as strong.
I used to read non-fiction books for fun. However, I haven't had
quite so much time recently, so I don't read them nearly as much as
I used to. (Browsing the pages for obscure chemical compounds on
wikipedia is just too addictive.)
I'm not exactly a movie buff... but do like the common ones you'll
see mentioned in most people's profiles.
Music is a different story. I listen mostly to a collection built
from the hitlist from a certain Australian radio station. It plays
all sorts of things some good, some bad. However, it tends to find
good new artists before anyone else does. The result is I listen to
stuff a few years before it hits the main stream.
I cook. Usually in a boring way... I am a guy after all. However, I
am not a vegetarian, and would not consider being with someone who
is. Been there, done that. Sorry. If you're nice, I will cook for
you quite often and would like to actually make the things I like

like this one.
Yes, this is a stupidly silly answer. However, I've picked myself
up and jumped all around the world so many times now that all the
important things for me just exist in my head. I can recreate them
whenever I wish, I guess.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of reality. Unfortunately, most people tend not to
understand octonionic tensor fields so this is problematic.
Studying the nature of time and space was once part of my job

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home watching TV or a movie, reading, or programming on my
software. I don't drink, and find the bar scene extremely boring,
so you'll rarely find me out and about. When I do it tends to be a
special occasion of some sort or another.

intellectual in some way or another. However, if your only topic of
