My self-summary
The real Floyd Collins was trapped in Sand Cave, KY, in 1925. He made the mistake of thinking competence is enough to escape any bad situation. I make the same mistake too.

Maybe I 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.

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.

(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 *pro* *sports* really aren't my bag.)

I am wide-awake, snarky, and vulgar by choice
What I’m doing with my life
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
Stretching metaphors until light shines through them. Explaining complex concepts in simpler language.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm so loud and boorish that there's no way I'm a native

I also have a large nose.

Actually, it was the side burns.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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
My fingers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My partners. Understanding how they think would make this life paradise on earth. Takashi Miike . Zombie-pocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Human. At home, cooking, thinking about movies. Or robots. Or sometimes, I'm depressed. Fridays are hard for me.

Weekend brunch mornings, OTOH, are a proof that the universe is anthropogenic

Where I'm not: smoky, crowded clubs, getting drunk, or Republican meetups.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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
Friends only. I have the awesomest partner that I met here, and my circle is closed.

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

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
