My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

Note for Locals:



If I say "Let's Meet", it's because I would love to chat more, get a coffee or beer, nothing more nefarious. UI-failures make it very hard to message people when once they show up in Locals!

Current news:



October 25, 2012: learning how to be a new dad is going to take up my time for a while, but I am still glad to meet out for coffee from time to time.

Main profile:



The real Floyd Collins was trapped in Sand Cave, KY, in 1925. He made the mistake of thinking skill is enough to end any bad situation. I make the same mistake all too often.



I hate red tape, and bureaucracy, and should have lived in a corrupt communist state where my willingness to believe rules don't apply to me would have been a survival skill, instead of possible pathology.



Why is the tone of this so dour? Really, I'm your typical jaded ex-Green, ex-Democrat realist lefty. A lot of my professional and personal life focuses around sexuality issues, and not just because I'm a pervert.



I like good films, vegetarian food, and creativity. I hope that's attractive! Also, don't believe OKCupid when they say I'm into sports! I am fit and in shape, and do activities that keep me that way (mainly jogging around Powderhorn Lake, rock climbing at the Midwest Mountaineering Cave (FREE!) and cycling). I do not like team sports, or follow professional sports. Further note: My relationship is consensually (or responsibly) non-monogamous (google is your friend!), not "potentially open". It's all the way open. My partners know everything.

Btw, if you're quick-matching me, I'm floydcollins



(also: OkC says I'm into sports. I'm not. I like to be outside and bike, and go to the climbing cave at Midwest Mountaineering a lot (it's free!), but I *so* *hate* *pro* *sports*. I'm especially not that guy who bonds over sports stats, yuck!)

I am wide-awake, snarky, and vulgar by choice
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As always, too much and not enough.

In my biological family, no one ever mentioned that part of the task of adulthood would be *narrowing down* ones choices. There just isn't time for everything. Instead we sift and sort through the choices and options, trying to determine which are worthwhile, which are impossible, and which are too much to take on. I won't be famous, but I can be good. I will not be universally adored, but I can make a community around me. Meanwhile, we live the best we can, and enjoy the hell out of what comes along, when we can.

I have a great poly family of choice, and a very strong sense of rootedness and community, among the pervy anti-consumerist folks I know.

In the past, I've been a high-school dropout, an archaeologist, worked in public health genetics, and an erotic photography photographer.

These days, I work as a programmer (mostly in JavaScript Python), for a west coast tech non-profit, that makes a leadig web browser. I work from home, which is completely awesome. Programming democratizes knowledge, which I find totally hot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Stretching metaphors until light shines through them. Explaining complex concepts in simpler language. Demonstrating how not to have working non-monogamy, and advising others on kink and relationships. Spreading the sex-positive gospel.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm so loud and boorish that there's no way I'm a native
Minnesotan.

I also have a large nose.

Actually, it was the side burns.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
a. Don Quixote, Brave New World, Vox and The Fermata by Nicholson Baker

b. Schizopolis by Steven Soderbergh. But then again, I see it every year, so it's not a fair contest. Raiders of the Lost Ark, Army of Shadows, Man on Wire

c. Do they still come out with new music? I haven't even caught up with the stuff from 5 years ago. I like the Flaming Lips. Give me more stuff like that, k thkx plz.

d. Falafel, english muffins with peanut butter, bananas, ya li pears, Barbette pommes frites, Birchwood key lime pie, spicy soups.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My fingers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My partners. Understanding how they think would make this life paradise on earth. Takashi Miike . Zombie-pocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Human. At home, cooking, thinking about movies and kinky sex. Or robots. Or sometimes, I'm depressed. Fridays are hard for me.



Where I'm not: smoky, crowded clubs, getting drunk, or Republican meetups.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

That I can't fix everything that's wrong with me by myself. The lust for anger and rage dies hard, but it does die.



Also, I had answered every active question in the database [damn, they've added more!]

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a cool human boi or girl or *insert awesome gender here* looking for a loud, foul-tempered smartypants to spend some time with. I hope you like scientists and aren't afraid of math. If you don't mind leaving your victimization at home, and are excited more by doing than by talking. Let us increase our skills and powers together. You're into democratizing knoweldge, sharing power, consensus models of leadership, and all roles for all genders.

I'm not primarily looking for play, but if you're concerned about it, I have other partners, but we are open to relationships going where they will. If you're nice (or not so nice (tm) ), you can even meet them(charliecopper1).

And of course: friends, partners in crime, movie buddies and fellow resistance fighters against our robot (and other-) overlords.

Other things I like: murderball -- rules! polyamory ( though I don't self-identify that way), non-monogamy, archaelogy, genetics, public health Or, we have some other connection: Grinnell, Simon's Rock, Caving, urban exploration

Don't Message Me (ugh)

To all you fellas who are < 70% match, live far away, are closeted.... keep it to yourself that you find me hot. It's not respectful or sexy.

I am hot because I am smart and empathetic. I don't want your "hey, wassup" messages. I don't want your comments on my body.
