My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I came here in a time machine that you invented.

Polyamorous, pansexual person primarily pursuing parallel, principal partner. Translation: I'm way more interested in a pretty face than any other part of anyone's biology, and I think it'd be fun to find someone who wants a 'main' partner but likewise thinks the world offers too much to be completely exclusive.

My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is "No."

I tend towards the quiet when left to my own devices, but never shy away from a crowd or new people. I'm a big nerd, love cats, and think most profiles are served better with shorter summaries.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I build websites and maintain databases for a charity which raises funds for research into multiple sclerosis treatment and provides programs and services for people living with MS, their families, and healthcare professionals. This lets me work from home, which is great, except that everyone I support is in the Central Time Zone, meaning my alarm is set for 7:00am. (I might stay in bed til 8 though, shhh.)

I want to publish a video game and I have designs on a JRPG-style one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard. I get random compliments on it all the time. I have been variously referred to as Abraham Lincoln (obvious), Ulysses Grant, and Brigham Young (?!), none of whom I think I look like.

Also, my wicked neck scars.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In no particular order, and not necessarily all-inclusive:

Books: How to Win Friends and Influence People, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, anything by Dave Barry, The Sword in the Stone, The Invisible Man, What Do You Care What Other People Think? and everything else Richard Feynman ever wrote, The Three Musketeers, The Hobbit, House of Leaves, Yotsuba&!, others I have likely forgotten to mention. I mostly prefer reading nonfiction to fiction, though.

Shows: Top Gear (UK), Mythbusters, Good Eats, Blackadder, The Venture Bros., Q.I., How It's Made, Haruhi no Suzumiya, Monster, Steins;Gate, LeLouch, Welcome to the NHK, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Reboot, Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, Lucky Star, Dirty Jobs, Father Ted, Wakfu, Kill la Kill... others I've probably missed. I've gone a good stretch of time without any TV at all (not worth the fees to me) and thus get most of my media these days from the internet, such as via PBS Idea Channel, SciShow, Crash Course (all of em), and augh so many more. YouTube complains about the size of my subscription list. And that doesn't even count podcasts... Welcome to Night Vale, Freakonomics, Good Job, Brain, Stuff You Should Know, and more.

Music: Flogging Molly, Metallica, The Beatles, Malice Mizer, symphonic and operatic pieces in general, video game pieces in general, Green Day, The Offspring, Pink Floyd, Queen, many Disney tunes, Gorillaz, Blackeyed Peas, Weird Al, Pendulum, System of a Down, Tenacious D, Cake, Cheb Mami, the music of Cirque du Soleil, Counting Crows, Enya, Franz Ferdinand, Hank Williams, Sr., Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Nat King Cole, Panic! At the Disco, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Styx, Weezer, plus many, many, many others. Only thing I don't like is country after about 1970.

Food: Everything! Except nattou.

Why isn't there a favorite games section here, too? I am a huge fan of board games, card games, video/computer games... some of my favorites include, among board games: Scrabble, Ticket to Ride, Battlestar Galactica, Settlers of Catan, Munchkin, Chess, Go; among card games: Cards Against Humanity, Cribbage, Oh Hell/Estimation, Texas Hold'em; and among video games: The Legend of Zelda series, the Super Mario Bros. series, Final Fantasy 4/6/7/10, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Earthbound, Goldeneye 64, Dynasty Warriors 4, Bully, Xenoblade, the Ace Attorney/Gyakuten Saiban series and spinoffs, the Dangan Ronpa series, Persona 3/4, The Secret of Monkey Island series, Wing Commander: Privateer 1 & 2, Portal 1 & 2, Far Cry 3/4 & Blood Dragon, Analogue: A Hate Story, Mass Effect, South Park: The Stick of Truth, The Stanley Parable, Saints Row 2, SanctuaryRPG, TIS-100, Cities: Skylines, Faster Than Light, every Civilization game, Worms: Revolution, Shovel Knight, and others I've certainly forgotten to name.

This section got long!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• The Internet (early adopter here -- who remembers Prodigy for MS-DOS?)
• A computer way more powerful than I need
• A car (nothing fancy, just the freedom a car affords)
• Music (all of it except modern country; bring back the Hank Williams and Patsy Clines of the world!)
• Games, so many games
• My job -- seriously, the bizarre forces of luck which landed me my current gig are nigh unfathomable; I love what I do and that I get to do it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of the Universe, Minecraft, programming, music, people generally, persons specifically, the world inside my own head, the world of tomorrow
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Don't usually plan these things, so whatever. Let's go to Hopworks and have some pizza and beer. Or play games at home while drinking wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have idiopathic musical hallucinations, constantly -- i.e., my secondary auditory cortex is continously firing (unless overridden by the primary cortex). Brains and bodies are weird!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Anyone should always feel free to message me. BUT, I will ask you to message me if one or more of the following statements applies to you:

• You're actually using OKCupid as a means to find people with relationship intent
• Your profile is full of things you like, not things you complain about
• You want to share music or videos with me (here, I'll start: ); my tastes are wildly eclectic and those aforementioned musical hallucinations will thank you
• You like studying logic and having debates about anything to exercise your thinking
• Whether you use textspeak ironically or not (or not at all), you have decent grammar, are reasonable at spelling, and appreciate the clarity the Oxford comma brings.
• You are a Node.js expert and want to tutor me
• You're a fan of Nintendo even after all this time
• You're more introverted than extraverted
• You're shy and you want to message me but you don't know what to say (there, now you can cite this as your reason for messaging me -- problem solved!)
• You have something in mind you'd like to go do together
• You think kissing might in fact be the most fun thing two people can engage in, but aren't 100% sure about that.
• You're the kind of person to write love letters regularly to the person you're actively seeing
• You think I'm cute and you like to flirt shamelessly and a bit aggressively
