My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The world is highly amusing and I drift about like a raft in the ocean, frantically steering towards the one simple goal in life: adding what little I can to make Earth the happiest planet in this solar system (integrated over time in subjective expectation), through whatever means achieve this - making creatures smile, fighting consumerism, ferociously hitting my head against the wall trying to contribute scientifically, or perhaps taking the last piece of pie to save the next person the trouble of deciding whether to eat it or not; the world is tricky.

Needless or not to say, I'm a geeky philosopher/mathematician/scientist/gurgel/programmer/humanitarian/some kind of life form spending my time questioning everything and finding my own answers; analyzing emotions&values and developing them for consistency; tackling unsolved practical and theoretical problems; philosophizing to no end; running around demonstrating for one right or another; making fishing nets but not for fishing; thinking about how I might raise kids as superhumans; getting lost in woods; getting lost without identity; and writing computer programs to generate music, stories, and in the end, simulate the entire world so that I can be god! Yes, god! A very sneaky god that occasionally hurts people just so that they won't take things for granted and stop appreciating life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fulfilling my childhood (and adult) dreams of making scientific contributions to the world. My field essentially tackles problems such as a mathematical formulation of "is there any difference between mechanical instructions and creativity/intuition?".

Well, if I must admit, my childhood dreams were more along the lines of "correcting all the mistakes Einstein made". I fell short on that one so now my dreams are a tiny tiny bit less grand.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making your world a better place! I hope... I might be completely misguided. Perhaps I should be fighting veganism rather than promoting it. That aside, I am good at figuring things out, coming up with weird ideas, seeing something positive in everything, liking people for who they are, offering my help to others if I notice they exist, and not running for president.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would guess something like "Weird guy. Weird eyes. Stares angrily into the distance when thinking. Happy. Comes with strange but interesting opinions. Got the same haircut as my six months old niece."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food
Pretty much just things that didn't live of other things that lived of things. Weekdays... bread, pasta, and rice. Maybe a tomato or two to spoil myself; preferably eaten as an apple, without the Youtube drool. Weekends... gooes/pots/stews, pesto, chili, anything potato.

Music
I'm curious, what does my taste in music say about me?
(Besides liking female singers for natural reasons.)

Home, In Control by Nemesea; Teardrops on my Guitar by Taylor Swift; Amaranth, Sahara, Bye Bye Beautiful by Nightwish; Rock, She, 7 Years & 50 Days by Groove Coverage; Afterlife by Avenged Sevenhold; When Love Takes Over by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland; Sweat (A La La La La Long) by Inner Circle; Paid in Full by Sonata Arctica, Wish you Were Here by Blackmore's Night; Storm by Theatre of Tragedy et al.; Watching Over Me, Burning Times by Iced Earth; You Gave me a Promise, Wrapped In Your Arms by Firelight; Don't Stop Me Now, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

Fiction
Silly comedies, fantasy/sci-fi, stories about intellect, skills, or personal growth. Assassin's Apprentice (so dark and cruel), Death Note (matching my inner desires), and Hikaru No Go (such infectious passion), The Big Bang Theory, The Holy Grail, and Terry Pratchett (obvious funnies) to name a few.

I really prefer making and generating stories over indulging in existing ones. Haven't had much success on the writing part as it takes a lot of time. I'm working on having my computer assist me by filling in the details.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The billions of lives called cells that die every day to make what I call hands.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I can do for the world. How I might improve myself. My research projects. Why it is that the world is the way it is - not the question "Why Whyyy does it have to be this way *cries*" which bother so many, this one merely has to accept - but, e.g., why does this hill sport a single tree? There's not even any saplings. If it was because of nutrition or water sources, shouldn't it either be no trees at all, or saplings growing half-way before dying? Mysteries all about...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Socially, things like just walking around, having a beer/wine, and talking/debating, museums, stand-up comedy, basically anything where I learn something new, the forest, watching shows together, experimenting with food, taking on projects. I love geeky and volunteering activities.

When I do not have plans with friends, I tend to mostly work on some projects, like evolving fish or simulating landscape erosion, occasionally reading, watching a movie, or writing narcissistically about myself on dating sites. Honestly, I need a fair amount of lone time to make up for social activities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Fire away, I'm an unfolding book. Understanding and acceptance is key, and it should come gradually.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are somewhat geeky, reasonably sane - but not too much - and do not mind that I don't know the last digit of pi. I enjoy meeting new people so despite this being a dating site, I'd happy to meet as just friends, or let things develop that way (as long as one is careful to avoid torture). You can just send a wink or whatever, I'll pick up the ball. Also, I got a spare kidney. Any takers?
