Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This world is so weird, I think I'm in the wrong one!
I drift about like a raft in the ocean, pretending I have any
control over whether the waves are bringing me closer to that 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 -
recycling (exciting!), spending a Saturday night in an office
(exciting!), solving problems (excciting! .. wait, it is), making
myself cry smiling by watching Louis CK (I'm also part of the
world), making other creatures smile (I guess), or perhaps taking
the last piece of pie (as a noble act to save the next person from
the trouble of having to decide whether to eat it or not ofc;
happiness is tricky).
Needless or not to say, I'm some geeky
enjoying figuring out my own answers (then realizing a year later
that conventional wisdom had good reasons all along); analyzing
emotions&values and developing them for consistency (cognitive
dissonance is amazing); tackling unsolved practical and theoretical
problems (dopamine is a rush); demonstrating for some matter or
another (meaningful and social hobbies seem the most fulfilling);
making fishing nets but not for fishing (not really a riddle);
thinking about how I might raise kids as superhumans (aptly nameed
Test Subject 1 and Testie 2); 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 (apparently being a god is a lot like raising
kids, but the latter seem to involve a lot more effort).
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?".
Although since the theory seems a bit too far removed from the real
world, I am considering an explorative voyage to "the real world"
next; I've heard it's a bit of a life-term experience..
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.
My next goal (in the 300 step plan) is to make artificial humans
(because clearly I can do what a million scientists before me
failed at), so that the rest of the universe can be populated by
Einstein-on-roids robots and have humanity descend into "just
another step on the evolutionary ladder".
Humans, as you and I, and billion more, have looked in amazement to
the great expanse of the universe and wondered. Is there life out
there? What fantastic worlds hide, teasing us with but a faint
light in a sea of noise? Humankind has difficulties comprehending
the revolutions of the future, despite the countless we have seen
in but a hundred years; in a but a grain of sand in our planet's
book. What has the next hundred years in store for us? The next
thousand? The next million? In my imagination, there will be a time
where the beings of Earth look out to the stars, and they do not
need to wonder - they can smile in quiet wonder, because almost
every single star which meet their eyes will hold a dozen planetary
bodies of buzzling life; and at such a time of a truly living and
populated universe, there will still be a trillion more years to go
before the heat death. In all glory, humans are fantastic and
worthy of all love but whatever little token we leave behind to
such a future dwarfs our most amazing moments by an unimaginable
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 think I am good at taking systems and
figuring them out from all sides, offering my help to others if I
notice that they exist, not running for president, and seeing the
positive in everything and everyone (all the "accomplishments" or
"moral slights" of humans will be for naught in about 10^100 years
when the universe essentially dies - with everything gone, what is
it that really mattered in the end?).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would guess something like "Odd guy. Weirdo eyes. Who is he
trying to kill with his mind? He's got the same haircut as my six
months old niece."; followed by breaches to the standard protocol.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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... any goo/pot/stew. Vegterian food is easy
- just throw anything you see around you, season properly, perhaps
add some coconut milk, and eat to delight. No worries about whether
fish will go well pineapple or not; it all mixes. In fact, I've
been trying to disprove the hypothesis that Cayenne Pepper goes
well with anything that already tasted good - melons, ice cream,
cookies, I have yet to find something which doesn't work with
I'm curious, what does my taste in music say about me?
(Besides liking female singers for natural reasons.)

Silly comedies, fantasy/sci-fi, stories about intellect,
psychology, or personal growth. Most recently, the Speaker for
the Dead (just heartachingly wonderful; free as an audibook on
Youtube - check it out!), Assassin's Apprentice (so dark
and cruel), Death Note (matching my inner desires.. to be
a intelligent martyr; perhaps not his means :p), and Hikaru No
Go (such infectious passion), 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 which die every day to make what
I call hands, or "my" mind for that matter. Close runner-ups to not
losing my mind or hands, would be music and chocolate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Besides the "am I walking straight now? I feel like I'm more
unbalanced than others.. and dont walk so close to people, they
might think you're a robber.. and... why are trees?". yes, why is
the world the way it is - not the question "Why Whyyy does it have
to be this way *cries*" which seems to be one of the most obvious
reasons for unhappiness yet most people practice it daily; but
rather, e.g., why does this hill have a lone tree on it? 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... human
happiness and psychology is considerably stranger than quantum
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most just socializing with friends, unless I have to put an
all-nighter. One Saturday however, things like just walking around,
chatting, watching stand-up comedy, or basically anything where I
learn something new, watching shows, experimenting with food,
taking on projects; or, I suppose I do more than the rest combined,
browsing the web; chatting, again, checking out new findings,
spending too much time on "comedy" sites, or writing
narcissistically about myself on dating sites.
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.

you feel like talking and think we get along; there's not more to
it :p I interact with people from all walks of life, and it is
great to see what living in another mind is like. You do not have
to be romantically interested or even of a gender which entices me;
if you think we should share some time, go ahead
