My self-summary
Right, here goes. I consider myself to be relaxed/lazy, open-minded and kind of scatterbrained person who likes to read about things and fully immerse himself with whatever topic he is currently interested in.

My interests include philosophy, playing games on my computer, chatting with friends in a quiet and solemn bar, playing airsoft, attending the weekly debate club at my old institute (I studied philosophy there for 1 year, see below), brew beer and ponder various things during long walks.

One hobby that persists is my willingness to learn about new things; I enjoy reading about all sorts of things, especially the unconventional, esoteric, strange and that which manages to frighten me; the former and latter often converge. My sense of humour is somewhat dry, dark and teasing.
What I’m doing with my life
I'll start studying philosophy again in September.
I’m really good at
I give all ideas, ideologies etc. an honest chance to prove their worth and rarely dismiss something without seriously considering it. Moreover, I'm great at rewriting lyrics and I make a wonderful chili.
The first things people usually notice about me
Frankly, I do not have the slightest idea; I have never bothered to ask anyone. Maybe my liberal usage of profanities in less "formal" occasions?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As for books, I prefer non-fiction generally. I'd rather read a report on the effects of ionizing radiation on cells than a horror story, a history book rather than an adventure story and an essay on normative ethics than a novel about moral dilemmas. There are, of course, a few exceptions to that rule; Catch 22, 1984, Good As Gold, Roadside Picnic, Metro 2033 and Slaughterhouse 5, to name a few.

Moving on to movies; Children of Men, The Way Of The Gun, Secretary, Primer, In The Loop, the Python movies, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, End of Evangelion, The Big Lebowski, Sukiyaki Western Django, Stalker.

Shows: Game of Thrones, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Big Train, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, The Thick Of It, Monty Python's Flying Circus, QI, The Office (UK), Cromartie High, Serial Experiments Lain, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Look Around You, Black Lagoon, Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

Music: Well, I should say genre preferences, but I -generally-listen to various kinds of music within the Stoner Rock/Metal spectrum (Electric Wizard, Earth, Kyuss, Nadja, High on Fire), Classical (Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, J.S Bach, The Red Army Choir), thing that fall in between (Anna von Hausswolff, Penderecki, Trummor & Orgel) and other various artists (Namco Sound Team, Frank Zappa, Shitting Glitter, Gogol Bordello, Tesla Boy). There's a lot of other things I listen to that I forgot here etc etc etc.

Food (& Drink): Anything with loads of garlic, soy sauce, onions, tomatoes, chilies or sweet potatoes. I'm a huge sucker for aromatic, "heavy" flavour explosions. As for drinks, I prefer Double IPAs and imperial stouts with the mouth feel and aroma of crude oil.
The six things I could never do without
Aside from mundane things that do not add anything new to the profile, interesting discussions, humour, music, friends, savoury food & drink, solitary walks, hedons (fuck the police, I can list as many as I want to), learning things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy( especially (meta)ethics, epistemology/metaknowledge, political theories and philosophy of science), winning imaginary arguments, various projects who will never be put into action, self-improvement, why people insist on wearing shitty hats.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually relaxing at home, listening to music and browsing the internet while trying out a new stout or IPA.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Eh, I have a thing for lasses with glasses I suppose.
You should message me if
If you feel like the various things mentioned above appeal to you, obviously, and you are an open-minded person with a good deal of brains, wit and/or a cocky streak.
