Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like coffee and I love my new house. I go to pubs not bars and I
can't dance. I cook and I'm a guy. I am a college dropout because
because a lifetime of learning is more valuable than 4-8 years of
being educated. And who really wants to spend their life in a
Dilbert Cartoon? Decaf coffee drinkers need not apply.
Actually I am pretty much in love with my house. I had roommates
for years. A couple of years ago I went on vacation and rented a
place on the Rio in New Mexico. And after only having my own messes
to clean and carte blanche with the hot water I decided to move on.
check that. Now I am really into my car. I bought an old Honda off
of a co-worker I was planning to resell at a profit. But once I got
it running I realized that I really like the VTec. So I put more
money into it and am considering rebuilding the engine.
I'm really a pretty self contained person. As long as I have books
to read and a kitchen I am at peace. I have chosen a life that
leaves me free to do so as often as possible. That is I do have a
hard hat and a blue collar but I also have an office and a bank of
computers. So instead of that Dilbert cartoon I spend the bulk of
my day studying whatever I want.
I get somewhat obsessive when an area interests me. Some folks read
Tao of Physics and decide that they understand the universe. I am
the sort that ends up reading original works by the theorists until
I know which interpretations I am skeptical of and which ones seem
elegant. so if I suddenly go off on a tangent about the Eastern
Roman Empire it likely has a lot to do with having a library card
when I was a kid.
I am completely tactless. Never picked up the habit.
I am erratic, intense, and distracted. I am honestly pretty
introverted but when I get comfortable and loosen up people can
mistake me for an extrovert.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work on a 60 foot chemistry set. I have a control room with
multiple monitors, a helmet, goggles, a device that shoots a laser,
and a tower that looks like a rocket ship that i climb around on. 8
year old me thinks I have the coolest job in the world. Modern me
appreciated that I spend most of my time on the job reading
whatever devastation Amazon wreaked on my bank account
Messing with my house.
Gahh finishing re-writing my profile.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Chess. Talking about anything. Figuring out problems (less they're
BORING). Building things or basically anything I do with my hands.
Analogies. Cooking. Eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think height. But maybe my hair. One ex told me that the first
thing she noticed was the way I deal cards (a weird little
one-handed half cut with a thumb deal)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I got Leon (The professional extended version) a bit back.
Restrepo was pretty awesome. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind,
Books: Mmmm books. Just reread a lot of Neil Giaman, Love Neil
Stephenson, RAW, how many characters is this string? Non-fiction is
pretty much economics right now. Was econ. Recently socioeconomics
and Idres Shah, or Gladwell. Actually at the moment I am reading
Leviathan on the Right from Cato but Some more Desmond Morris came
in. It changes.
TV: I actually don't own one, haven't for years. There are a couple
of shows I watch online. Breaking Bad, The Wire, Southpark, Game of
Music: Most of it, Follows my mood. Sometimes it's Jazz or
Classical sometimes I'm a rivethead. I have an amazing assortment
of white-guy rap. got to talking with a co-worker about Bad
Religion and so lately I am listening to the downloads that came
from that. Nope into Ska again this week.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee, books, power tools, electronic media, a knife and string.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Subject to change I am fascinated by bright shiny objects. Usually
two seeming unrelated subjects at once. Like primatology and
economics.Which are really pretty much the same thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Drinking something dark. Cooking something delicious.
Reading. Playing a game. Some Fridays all of the above?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was 4 I disassembled and reassembled the familly phone a
dozen times. I wanted to find out how it worked, I still do not
know how telephones work, I guess I suck...
