My self-summary
Thoughtful, intelligent, and kind.

Though under the appropriate circumstances - e.g., with my partner's enthusiastic consent - I can be downright mean.

You...probably aren't my type. I'm sorry. It's nothing personal. Mostly, it's statistical.

Also I'll be touring Europe and Asia until about the end of June, so yeah.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an investor with a writing hobby, and a hope that someday the two will switch.

I used to have a startup; it became a runs.
I’m really good at
Producing smiles; arbitraging airline rewards programs; not judging people for what they want; making toasts; staying calm; charming the staff; being honest; waiting for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
While travelling in the south of China, I ended up sitting next to a Chinese guy on a train. Though neither of us spoke the other's language in any usable fashion, we both had smartphones with translation apps. This allowed us to converse at a surprisingly high level of fidelity: we discussed hobbies, Japan's recent odious revisions of history, and China's methods of education, which he was dissatisfied with, especially, he confided to me, the sex education, which was pretty much nonexistent. At this, I asked his age. He told me: 22.

Ah, I said. That is a tough age. The women are beautiful, and the men don't know anything.

People usually first notice that I shave my head. Or that I'm wearing a hat. Or that I have large arms. This is a dumb question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This will be the long part.

Nonfiction, which is its own creature: Why I Write, The Selfish Gene, The Big Short, Under the Banner of Heaven, Half the Sky, Team of Rivals, The Bully Pulpit (I like Kearns Goodwin), The Bottom Billion, Bossypants, Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman, The Second World War (Churchill's), Hiroshima, The Better Angels of Our Nature, and pretty much every essay David Foster Wallace ever wrote.

Fiction, which is owned, at first: 1984, The Sandman, Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, Girl Genius, Neuromancer, Erfworld, The Great Gatsby, Nana to Kaoru, The Gods Themselves, Game of Thrones, Breakfast of Champions, The Windup Girl, The Old Man and the Sea, The Lord of the Rings, Slaughterhouse Five, A Christmas Carol, Watchmen, Hyperion (the book), The Forever War, Huckleberry Finn, White Fang, and NONE of the novels David Foster Wallace ever wrote.

Poetry, which is not in style, but fuck you: Not Waving but Drowning, Flanders Field, Good-by and Keep Cold, When You are Old, Daddy, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, An Essay on Criticism, On Seeing the Elgin Marbles, Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night, The Walrus and the Carpenter and anything by Emily Dickinson

Live, which is never as good read: The Merchant of Venice, Major Barbara, The Mikado, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, and any ballet with music by Tchaikovsky

Movies, which are increasingly difficult to distinguish from TV: Lawrence of Arabia, Ratatouille, Serenity, Pulp Fiction, The Muppet Christmas Carol (I am serious, the muppets did the best adaptation of this story to date), The Godfather, Casablanca, and anything by Miyazaki

TV, which I watch more of than I admit: Firefly, Mad Men, FLCL, House of Cards and all right all right Archer.

Music, which I sometimes feel I am the only person on the internet without strong feelings about: Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Debussy, Johnny Cash. The Beatles.

Food, which is an embarrassingly large line-item in my budget: Yes.
The six things I could never do without
“Will it blend?”
My passport
Google spreadsheets. (I'm really exciting)
It's a secret.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The astonishing amount of trouble people will go to in order to stay inside their comfort zones.

How that, whatever it is, it happened in Florida.
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing we do every night, Pinky.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once spent the better part of an afternoon reading The Economist's style guide. I regret nothing.

You like going to museums, eating delicious food, and things that involve dressing up.

You're smart.

You have written something more creative than "always up for the next adventure". Seriously, is this code for something?
