My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"My self summary." Who am I, you mean to ask?
...
I hope that not all of the questions are this difficult.

Where to begin? Well, among the things that I love to talk to people about are philosophy, politics, theology and science; subscribing to aspects of rationalism and stoicism, but also believing heavily in compassion and empathy as vital guiding principles; I adhere very firmly to the ethical principles that I hold. I try, at the very least, to be thoughtful when dealing with any given issue.

Outside of those high-minded, and quite possibly rather pretentious interests, are the usual more mundane ones. I spend probably a disproportionate amount of time each week sifting through my YouTube subscriptions list. I'm a gamer, and a sci-fi fan; which is why the primary means I have to defend my home is the lightsaber sitting on a shelf in the living room. So far it's been a great deterrent; as of yet no Sith have even attempted an incursion.

I don't drink, but I am well accustomed to those around me doing so, and I nonetheless do have an affinity for bars and pubs as places to hang out, possibly because I lived in a pub for a few years as a child. Besides, I just traded alcohol for a Dr Pepper addiction to nurse.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Resitting a module for the politics course I did at uni before I graduate in the summer; working at Subway to pay bills in the meantime.

Allow me to preempt your next question if I may; yes, I can get free sandwiches. That is simply the scale of power which a man in my line of work wields. I'm very much a modern Ozymandias.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Understanding multiple sides to an issue, which is also a part of my being pretty good in a debate, I think. It's also a skill which helps out when advising friends on various issues. That said, I'm also pretty good at parsing information and decisively coming to a conclusion, whilst allowing for the possibility of being mistaken.

I'm not a bad writer, though I wouldn't go as far as to say "really good".

Oh, and not sleeping. It's 3:45 as I type this, and I doubt I'll be asleep for another couple of hours yet. Because my internal body clock is either massively faulty, or just kind of a dick.

And I'm seemingly pretty good at making folks laugh, once I know them a bit. Though to be honest I really only tell jokes for my own amusement - other people laughing is just a bonus.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm at work, then I presume it's the glasses and my overly polite demeanor. If I'm not at work, then I presume it's the glasses and the overly shabby jacket I usually wear.

Seriously, it's like something from Steptoe & Son at this point. But, there's sentimental value in that jacket dammit, so continue to wear it I shall, 'till it is naught but thread hanging loosely from my shoulders. Or until I find a replacement jacket I like. Whichever comes first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For the sake of brevity, I will try to stick to three for each category. Otherwise we would be here for quite a while.

Books

- The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. A book which is not only excellent in it's own right, but when I was younger really helped me to think about what I believed, and continues to be valuable to me today.

- The God Delusion. An imperfect book, perhaps, but on this list for similar reasons to the one above. Challenged me and, indeed, caused me to alter my position on the subject.

- The Fault In Our Stars. Because it's just a lovely book. Funny and sad all at once, and devastatingly effective at both.

TV

- The West Wing. Simply one of the greatest shows ever made. Phenomenal in just about every way.

- Star Trek. A franchise that probably did more to raise me than my parents, which I do not say lightly. Long before I was reading books that made me think about who I was and who I wanted to be, there were these shows, asking me those same questions, and inspiring my answers to be better than they otherwise would have been.

- Firefly; browncoats for life. 4 lyfe, yo.

Music

First of, I should note that I mostly listen to hip-hop. Most people are rather surprised by this. I'm not sure why.

- The Cool, Lupe Fiasco. The Cool is simply my favourite album of all time. Wonderful wordplay, deep meanings and themes including the multi-song, multi-album story of The Cool, and it's easy to see why Rap Genius called Lupe "The Proust of Rap". Took me years to feel like I actually understood all of that album.

- Late Registration, Kanye West. Yes, he's an asshole. And an egotist. But also a genius. And this album was simply wonderful. "Drive Slow" in particular uses a saxophone sample that just shoots straight to the soul.

- The Marshal Mathers LP, Eminem. I assume that the reputation of this one precedes it, and that I need say no more, yes?

And finally, Games

-KotOR 2. Ugly, even for it's time, incomplete and buggy as hell. I loved this game despite all that. It's the game that first taught be that games could really be meaningful, and have something to say, and even allow you to say something in turn.

-Time Splitters: Future Perfect. On the other side of the coin, the finest silly, camp and funny shooter ever made. Simply brilliant fun.

- Journey. Simply the most beautiful game ever made.
