I am a good man, not a nice guy; the character of Disney's Aladdin
had a profound effect on me growing up. I used to start a lot of my
sentences with, "... well actually" but now I just think it. I
think it's rude for me to go on talking about myself, but I'll
answer any direct question... almost.
The two greatest compliments I have ever received were, "You remind
me of Jon Stewart" and "You're not a guy. Guys are jerks, you're
better than that."
I have free climbed big rocks in Italy, had a cocktail in Qatar,
visited coffee farms in Colombia, and had more than three cups of
tea in Afghanistan; I've gone to the beach in Canada, had an
apartment in Germany, a traditional English breakfast in Brittany,
and really good wine and cheese in France. I have laid floors,
remodelled homes, painted walls and swung a sledge hammer. I've
fixed radar, made nylon, extracted DNA, and identified proteins. I
have purchased myself a POS Subaru, two motorcycles, a BMW, and a
Volvo. I've driven cross country, camped out under the stars, been
swept away by a big city, and sipped sweet tea on a front porch...
but I haven't met you yet. Here's hoping we can remedy that.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend most of my time learning things. If I learn all the things,
I'm sure I'll get a prize or something... like, some sweet bunny
slippers. That would be rad.
I’m really good at
I have travelled all over the world collecting quality people. I
can be the guy that does the thing, but more often I'm the guy that
knows the guy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't much care what people notice first. People worth spending
time with will notice the good stuff and forgive the rest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a very long list, in all of the categories, ranging from
the mundane to the pretentious, from classics to the esoteric. I
like art. I think it's pretty neat.
The six things I could never do without
Using a preposition to end a sentence with.
The Haber process
A dog whisperer
a nice MLT - mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton
is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe, they're so perky, I love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Big things and small things. Why it is when you think about eating
lemons, your body reminds you of the taste of lemons. Why can't NBC
keep a good show on the air? #sixseasonsandamovie ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
I’m an empty essay... fill me out!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm clever, I'm only slightly clever.
You should message me if
You think about things; if you ponder and ask questions. If you
value beauty and not the superficial, you should say, "hello".
