My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an optimist. I believe the future will be awesome. Colonies on Mars, nano robots, nuclear fusion and, of course, fewer pandas.

Some asshole reported the pictures of fractals I had on my profile. Nice way to go, you morrons ! Not only were they totally cool and über awesome but they also provided nice conversation starters.
I am now devoting my life to finding you, hunting you down and killing you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After five years in Belgium I'm back in Strasbourg ! :)

During the day, I draw maps. During the night I put my underwear over my pants and fight crime using my superpowers of topology and some kick ass gadgets like linear algebra. Or most likely I'm either at home reading or in a bar explaining why the Platonists are assholes who burnt the work of the atomists and other rational philosophers.

Also I'm trying to break the okcupid matching algorithm. I still don't understand how 99% compatibility profiles can be so unappealing, while I had some lovely chats with 70%-80%. I mean, I did find a 99% profile who said she didn't like maths nor sci fi. If you have some ideas on how the god dam things work and want to exchange datas with me, please, by all mean, do.

Plus I don't think dating sites work for one simple reason. What they sell is users. If a user find a real match the website losses a consumer and a product. Twice.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
opening stuffs to see what's inside. Not so good when it comes to putting it all back together...
Asking questions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My charming good looks?

well people say I talk too much. Or too fast. Or both.

Someone at my impro class called me "vertical" because I could switch from quoting Marcus Aurelius to telling fart jokes with absolutely no middle ground in between. That is the nicest compliment I have ever heard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I believe fiction deals with man, and science fiction with mankind.

I'm reading almost anything fantasy or Sci Fi related. I love The Lord of the Rings, a Song of Ice and Fire, the Chronicle of the Black Company, the Wheel of Time,...

I've read all of Discworld's novels and can't wait for the next one. my favorite character being Lord Vetinari. I'd really like a full novel centered around him and not just as a supporting character.

I Think Asimov is a semi god sent to Earth to deliver a message of hope and teach me how to pass physics. He did 50% of the job. I've read all of his work in French when I was in high school and now I'm completing my English collection. I've also read nearly all of Clark's work and most of Niven and Dick's works.
The awesomest (yes firefox, I know that's not a word. Screw you !) thing about Niven's ringworld is that he wrote a sequel after fans from the MIT pointed out all of the engineering's errors in his first book.

I'm also reading science books for the fun of it. I can never recommend Penrose's "The Road to Reality" enough. It's like a Stephen Hawking books, except with Maths. And Maths make everything better. Also Isaac Asimov's "Understanding Physics" is the best book anyone can ever read. If Earth were to be destroyed in the next minutes and all we could save from mankind was one book, I would choose this one. If you haven't read it yet ; read it. It is your life's new highest priority. Stop everything you are doing now and go buy and read this book.

Also I like French Classical Literature. The "Grand Siècle" : Molière, Racine, Corneille, Cyrano. So many great read. XIXth century also is quite fascinating : Balzac (<3 the best French ever written) Hugo, Dumas,... For some reasons I didn't enjoy Zola. His style is too heavy to be enjoyable.

Ok that should cover a small part of the "books" section of the things I enjoy. I will try to be quick for the rest.

I've watched Star wars a gazillion times and all of Star Trek TOS... :)
I'm also a huge fan of Cosmos. I still have the VHS back home. ;)
Doctor Who can get me on his TARDIS any time he wants. I always trust a man who asks me to come inside a windowless box for candies, as long as he has a British accent.

Music : Simple. Classical and Metal. I hate rap and don't consider techno to be music but rather the proof you don't need talent to sell, only to fall asleep on a keyboard and maybe sometime, move your head a little.

food. Yes. Please insert food inside me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I use it all the time at work, when choosing the shortest path to go on a trip, to know how much holidays will cost, to know If I'll have enough time, to choose which algorithm to implement... and sometimes just for fun
I'd like to paraphrase my personal hero, Richard Feynman :
Math is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it.

I can't go a full week without reading.

I get sad if I don't get to dirty my shoes

I can't start working without my cup of coffee and my Dilbert comic.

my sense of humor
I get sad when I don't joke.

Come on! I'm French! What do you expect ?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What will happen if I pull this lever ?

hmmm... I wonder if that happens every time.

Continuum hypothesis. It seriously keeps me from sleeping at night.
Seriously. People. This is mind blowing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking beers with friends or reading a book at home.
Getting away for the week end

Wondering if I should leave it all behind, just board a boat and sail around the world, probably killing myself in the attempt because I'd much rather use the sextant and spend hours doing tedious spheric trigonometric calculation than use a GPS.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still play with LEGOs. I once asked the store clerk to put wrapping paper around the box because I felt like she was judging me. But I needed the firetruck to add to my awesome spacecraft. What kind of spaceship doesn't have a ladder ? What if there is a fire in space ?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
if you live within one hour of driving distance from me and want to invite me to a RPG or a board game night.
If you are a true redhead. I already want to marry you.
If you want to go hiking.
If you have a favorite map projection and want to tell me about it.
If you want to go have a couple of beers with me.
If you love maths.
If you want to cook with me.
If you want to leave it all behind, just board a boat, sail around the world and prevent me from probably killing myself in the attempt.

If you're looking for an ice breaker here are some ideas :

-What is your favorite dinosaur and why ? (warning there's a correct answer)
-When the robots will rise and try to take over in which side will you fight for ?
-Once we've colonized Mars, what should be our next move ?
-Imagine a conversation between Marc Twain and Jules Verne. A conversation that I could continue.
