My self-summary
Call me Ishmael. Screw it, call me Eric.

Renaissance man is the best term to describe me. I was born blue-collar, so I grew up installing carpet, hammering nails and fixing cars, and my dad and I earned our motorcycle licenses a few summers ago at a school upstate. Since getting out of grad school, I started work as a technical writer/trainer at a local railway company, then came down to Jersey to work with you fine people. Spare time, when I can comprehend the idea, is spent working toward a black belt in karate, running, and destroying every bar and club on Alexander St. Suit coat and fedora required. I'm a master of contradiction.

What I like:
- Finding new ways to present information
- Creating things
- Making new and unlikely friends
- Debating the mysteries of the universe
- Exploring (the woods or the streets, either is cool)
- taking a second to look at the stars
- kicking a hole in something : )
- Chuck Norris facts
- Samuel L. Jackson movies
- bulleted lists, apparently

What I don't like:
- Social Media (I didn't say I don't use it, I said I hate it)
- Dating Sites (see above)
- Modern BS
- Postmodern BS
- Posthardcore (screw it, I hate anything with post in front of it)
- Drama/Games/Lies/Assorted BS
- Not having dreams or goals
- Excessive negativity (if you enjoy complaining about everything, please hit the back button...now)
- Excessive use of parenthesis...wait, um...

*FYI: The handle "HeavyFuel" comes from the song "Heavy Fuel" by Dire Straits. Go listen if you're interested.
What I’m doing with my life
Winning. Working. Pursuing writing interests, with a wad of programming thrown in to make things interesting. Working to make that paper, cuz I ain't no scrub. Living on my own, place and car included (and good fedoras ain't free). Kicking ass in Karate and running until my legs fall off. Taking my mom to the grocery store, cuz I'm a good Italian boy. Petting kittens and walking old ladies across the street.
I’m really good at
Misspelling words I actually know how to spell, for dramatic effect. Again, winning. Doing anything that can be done Like A Boss. Mostly, I'm pretty good at being determined and finishing what I set out to do. I'm also good at balancing right and left brain. I've helped clear a hay field one day, then went and designed a web site the next. Golly, what will he do now?
The first things people usually notice about me
One of my exes said I had cute eyes and a nice smell. Need anything else?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
An English degree basically means I read, watch and listen like a fiend. Listing everything I'm into would probably crash OKC's bandwith, so I'll limit everything to my top five.

Nothing's in order : ).

- Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- The Gunslinger by Stephen King
- Lightning by Dean Koontz

Movies:
- What Dreams May Come
- Terminator
- The Karate Kid (Old and New, which should have been The Kung-Fu Kid...)
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine
- Aliens
- Inception
- The King's Speech (Yeah, that's seven. Whatever.)

Shows:
- House
- Pretty much everything else sucks. How am I doing on this top five thing?

Music (Warning: injuries resulting from how random this is are not my problem):

- Five Finger Death Punch
- Tech N9ne
- Jimi Hendrix
- Eminem/Bad Meets Evil
- Owl City
- Bullet For My Valentine
- Boston
- Tesla

Food:
- Fried Chicken
- Couscous
- Broccoli
- Brussels Sprouts
- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups/Bars/Pretty much anything with Reese's on the label

Drinks (can't forget this category):
- Tequila
- Jack
- Captain Morgan
- Guinness Draught
- Blue Moon
- English Snake Bite

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Humanity. Way to be specific right? I sometimes think about that Match/Friend/Enemy percentage thingy. Is it right, and is the girl of my dreams really a 95% match? Should I message a girl with a 96% friend just to only be friends?

If you're an 89% friend match or above, let me know what you think...
On a typical Friday night I am
What? You mean I get one of those? Actually, my first normal Friday in about a year and a half is coming up this week. I'll tell you how it went.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
During study abroad in England in '07, my Russian friend and I stopped into the Tate Modern Art Museum on our way down the Thames. No that's not the private thing. After admiring the signed urinal, the slashed canvas, all that stuff Jackson Pollack did, and every other shining example of modern artistical fortitude, we stopped into the gift shop on the way out. There, I picked up a copy of 101 Things to Do Before You Die by Richard Horne, and since then I've made it my life's goal to complete the list. There's some crazy s*** on there, but I'm down. Some things are more fun with friends. Or a girlfriend...
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–39
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
The above didn't scare you off. The 101 list, I mean. The excessive use of bulleted lists and parenthesis didn't drive you up the wall. You don't think I look like a deranged greyhound. Actually, I'm the guy so I'll probably be doing all the messaging. But just in case you feel like making things a little easier.

You actually plan on dating in meatspace a.k.a the real world. I'm not out to make anyone uncomfortable, but I don't date online. I date in restaurants, movie theatres, coffee houses and wherever the hell else I feel like taking a date. Capice?

You have either a life or a goal. If you're down on your luck, I feel you but if you have no intention of getting back up, you can't keep up with me. That said, I'm pretty tolerant. I like older women but age is more based on mind than birthdate. I want a family one day, so kids don't bother me. Aside from the above, I'm cool with most other stuff.
