My self-summary
Tyr Anasazi: "What would you like, Jaguar?"
Charlemagne Bolivar: "The usual. Hundreds of grandchildren, utter domination of known space and the pleasure of hearing that all of my enemies have died in terrible, highly improbable accidents that cannot be connected to me"
- Andromeda, season 2, episode 9, "Into the Labyrinth"

After a decade of trial and error, I have learned the hard way that the number one predictor of compatibility is COMMUNICATION. It is the willingness to ask "did I misinterpret what you said or did you misinterpret what I said?" rather than say "anyone who would say X must believe Y, and anyone who might possibly believe Y is not worth my attention because they're more closed-minded than I am". You and I can disagree on EVERYTHING else, as long as we agree on this. If I say "DS9 > TNG", it means "DS9 > TNG", not "TNG sucks". When I describe myself as having "obsessive-compulsive tendencies", it just means that I have some personality traits that resemble toned-down versions of OCD symptoms; it does NOT mean that I actually have OCD. When I describe my diet as "mostly vegan", that means "my diet is mostly vegan". It does NOT mean "I only date other vegans" or "I expect the other person in a relationship to cook vegan food for me" or anything else. "Short-term relationship" does not mean "one-night stand".

Yes, those were all things that people have mis-read in my profile on this site.

My best attribute are my intelligence, sense of humor, selflessness, rationality, perseverance, emotional stability, and incessant drive for self-improvement. I'm a goth-geek hybrid (think Abby Sciuto from NCIS, but male) and my body mass fluctuates between 55 and 65 kg, but is always pretty much 0% body fat.

My all-time favorite hobby is digital video editing. You can see my most recent project at here (unless you're reading this on a phone, in which case GET TO YOUR DAMN COMPUTER). My next video will be either "Failure in Stereo", a radically technically ambitious project in which HD video will be generated from SD sources (specifically, Neon Genesis Evangelion) with no resizing, or a more traditional project using footage from Lost Girl and the song "Loves me Not" by t.A.T.y.

For all the World of Warcraft players out there: You should know that while I have no love for the Horde, I am fiercely loyal to the Forsaken and Blood Elves, and while I harbor no ill will toward the Alliance, I do have a vendetta against the Worgen and Night Elves.

What I’m doing with my life
I cannot be bothered to update this section frequently enough for it to remain accurate most of the time. Life has been pretty turbulent for me these past few years.
I’m really good at
Math (though I hate it), digital video editing, playing games other than sports, climbing shit, swimming, building computers, and minesweeper.

I've been told that I'm an excellent mixologist. I also have a fondness for mixing drinks in large batches, which requires a lot of imperial-to-metric conversion. I once got into an argument over how many fluid ounces are in a shot. If you want to know how your chemistry teacher likes to party on the weekends, I can show you.

I can take uncooked, not-ready-to-eat items from a grocery store and convert them to an edible form without burning the kitchen down. I don't consider this to be a particularly impressive skill and I never attempt anything complicated, but my friends and roommates have all told me that I'm an awesome cook. I also don't trust dishwashers, and if a dish or eating utensil needs to be cleaned, I will do it manually. I suspect that I will make a great housewife some day.

The first things people usually notice about me
One of my eyes was badly damaged when I was younger, and it will now no longer focus or dilate correctly, nor point at what I'm looking at.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Here are some of the TV shows that I've binge-watched in the past 2 years or so. It is by no means an exhaustive list, nor do I even necessarily like every show on it, but it should give you an idea of the sorts of things that catch and hold my attention:

NCIS - A bunch of cops and forensic scientists solve homicide cases

Bones - a team of scientists and one cop solve homicide cases

Perception - a schizophrenic college teacher helps his cop friend solve crimes related to mental illness.

Lost Girl - a bisexual succubus decides to become a freelance detective and help her werewolf cop boyfriend solve supernatural mysteries.

iZombie - a psychic zombie helps the police solve homicide cases by eating the brains of the deceased and absorbing their memories

Defiance - Main character becomes the sheriff of a town populated by humans and 5 different species of aliens and solves alien-related crimes while his adopted alien daughter gets caught up in alien-related mysteries

Once Upon a Time - Main character becomes the sheriff of a town populated entirely by fairy-tale characters, and finds some mysteries to solve.

Gotham - detective Jim Gordon joins the Gotham PD and promises to solve the Wayne murder case

Continuum - a cop from the future travels back in time to the present day, joins the Vancouver PD, and helps them fight time-traveling terrorists. Time-travel-related mysteries ensue.

Helix - a bunch of scientists from the CDC travel to various places, get their epidemiology on, and find that not all of the mysteries they encounter are disease-related. Oh, and a local sheriff shows up at one point.

I don't see any pattern starting to emerge here... do you? ;P

Also, I want to know where I can buy DJ Muffin's "Pruzhinki" album, which most people know as the album of t.A.T.y. + Rammstein mashups. If you know where I can buy this album, please tell me!
The six things I could never do without
You mean aside from oxygen, water, food, heat, shelter, and broadband internet access?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, religion, history, economics, science, science fiction, computers, computer games, video games, card games, board games, three-dimensional geometry, four-dimensional geometry, books, movies, TV shows, guns, fire, explosions, death, destruction, mayhem, Sarah Connor, small furry animals, shiny objects, eugenics, sex, drugs, rock and roll, libertarianism, transhumanism, the technological singularity, and 14-year-old anorexic Japanese girls who pilot giant anorexic Japanese robots (you Evangelion fans know what I'm talking about)... you know, all the normal stuff

I have a tendency to develop temporary obsessions with obscure subjects. One week, it'll be cladistics; the next, cymatics; and then I'll move on to signal-processing and interpolation. I've been described as an "encyclopedia of useless information" because I never stop learning.

On Facebook, someone posted an article about the possibility of "starivores" - space-dwelling organisms that eat stars. My response was "Wouldn't the correct term be stellavore (latin) or astrophage (greek)?" Yes, I am THAT much of a nerd.

On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing I do every night: trying to take over the world!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wasn't attracted to Halle Berry until she was pushing 50 in Extant, but I was attracted to Ariel Winter as soon as Season 2 of Modern Family. I also wasn't attracted to Angelina Jolie until I saw Hackers. But I have a total crush on Cat from Gotham. Basically, I'm not a pedophile, I just don't give a shit about age. That's probably a strong sign of being a sapiosexual... except that my cutoff point seems to be about 12. If there's no grass on the field, I won't play ball... not for legal or moral reasons, but because I just don't find girls that young to be hot. It's probably the reason why I didn't find Ariel Winter to be hot in the first season of Modern Family.

But there are plenty of 50+ women that I'd totally date/bang. Just saying, not a pedo, just don't give a crap about age as long as you're smart and mature.
You should message me if
- You know where Carmen Sandiego is, who let the dogs out, why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and/or how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

- You can humor my lab coat fetish. This is not a joke, I have an actual folder on my computer dedicated to pictures of women in lab coats.

Note: if you bother identifying yourself as a Feminist in your profile, I WILL ask what wave you are. If you're first-wave, great! Second is... okay, I guess. The third wave is a batshit crazy religion and I don't date batshit crazy religious people. Also, if you think a global temperature increase of one kelvin over the next hundred years is some kind of catastrophic scenario with the potential to wipe out humanity, you might be a member of a batshit crazy religion.
