My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you're too busy to read a long profile, please assume that I have written everything that would make me a desirable male specimen. Since I personally don't know what that would be, I'll aim for mild entertainment value.

Research shows that messaging me has been proven to maintain healthy skin, improve your mood and protect your laptop from viruses!

In recent years I have coached tennis, operated a battle tank, run a lasers laboratory, traded financial derivatives from an office in the middle of the desert and developed global marketing strategy for toilet paper. And those were just my jobs, wait till I tell you about my hobbies.

I do everything sincerely, nothing ironically. I'm honest past the point of tactlessness. I don't own a single possession for the sake of making an impression.

This is not my first country and not my first language. My accent is goofy and unplaceable. I do plan to hang around these parts for a good while.

My name is Jacob, and I'm a Tar Heel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting paid to do financial software, in turn paying to do stand-up comedy, play volleyball and soccer. In 10 years I'm equally likely to be a Wall Street millionaire, a modestly living PhD or a broke failed comedian.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making the inappropriate joke at the wrong time, putting top-spin on a serve, Excel, arguing epistemology, texting back the next day, cooking wasabi chili, playing with nipples.

I'm not good at: humility, keeping my answers serious.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I walk out of an office on Wall Street with bright red laces in my shoes because I'm still fuzzy about the whole concept of business casual. What the hell is "business casual" anyway besides an oxymoron?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - engrossing, movies - picturesque, shows - splendiferous, music - melodious, food - chili.

Look, I bet you haven't seen/read/heard my favorite movie/book/band. That's great! What's better than leading each other to discover wonderful new options?

OK, I'll give you five recent books I loved because if you've read any of them too you'll get super excited:
The Girl with All the Gifts (Carey), Thinking Fast and Slow (Kahneman), Open (Agassi), Straw Dogs (Gray), A Canticle for Leibowitz (Miller)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have done without almost anything, so if I had to pick six I'd guess my two legs, two eyes and two testicles will get me through most things. I do love my MP3 player though, I may give a testicle for that one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Improving myself as a rationalist by eliminating psychological biases in my thinking. Hey, everyone needs a hobby.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing volleyball at an old Czech gym with former pros and then drinking gin until 2 am. But I can do brunch on Saturday after 11 am or so.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have absolutely no secrets. You want a good idea for a first message? Ask me something personal.

Here's a weird one: I walked just over 1,500,000 steps last year. Because I love walking, but more than that I love Fermi estimation.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'll feel really dumb reading all the way to the bottom of this page and leaving without even saying hi.

You're kind hearted and also a badass.

I like people who are slutty, or at least wish to be. My brain doesn't process either jealousy or prudishness.

I'm looking for a woman with ideas and opinions: on the conflict in the Ukraine, on the NBA, on cool places in town. I can always be the one picking the restaurant and the topic of conversation myself, but it's going to be boring for both of us. Ideally, you have passion, ambition, and enough things to fill your day by yourself. But you know that everything will just be that much better with me around.

I have been on quite a few dates with some very judgmental ladies, no one ever had trouble finding things to judge me about. The ones who didn't care what music I listen to or what kind of relationships I was in or what I think about Obamacare had a much better time, and a few became close friends of mine. Come open-minded, you won't regret it.
