My self-summary
A not-too-recent immigrant from the British Isles, but born in Mother Russia. I'm here for graduate studies in the science dept. It's very fun, and I wish I could be a student forever the way I'm feeling now.

An unmitigated and shameless introvert, I like people and usually get friendly with people quickly and people like me. But I'm drained quickly. Without sounding too much of an megalomaniac, I'm like Obama in that regard(okay, too megalomaniac).

So, you'll like me. But you won't see me all the time but when you do, we'll have kickass fun!
Only you'll be pissed and send me drunken (s)exts on weekends submerged with bitterness from time to time. Not for everyone! I warned you. So read on, if you're a masochist...
What I’m doing with my life
I wish it was Walter White-cool.
But in reality it's pretty dorky and nerdy.
Except that I love doing dorky, nerdy stuff and that will never change, man, ever.
I’m really good at
Not letting bullshit bothering me.
Also a pretty good street magician for a layman! Helped me out countless times when I was dirtpoor in foreign countries and needed the help from strangers.
You'd be amazed what a pair of hands can do to warm up a relationship, however fleeting. And that sounded way more sexual than I'm comfortable with.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not really that shy and kind of an open person.
You sort of learn have to learn getting over that, even as an introvert, if you are to survive when you're travelling with basically no cash in your pocket and no visa card to bail you out in a country where few people know English. (Which sounds horrendous but is actually quite lovely).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Orwell(and especially his essays), Joseph Heller, Eliot George, Andreas Roman. Lots of old Russian authors which nobody has heard of, unless you're a total book nerd. And if you are, I heart you.
The six things I could never do without
Getting retweeted by midsize corporations and artsy television shows.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots of technological stuff, crazy stuff, like how to extend life on Mars. Or the advantages or disadvantages of cloning as a replacement for sex for reproduction. In other words; sex as something purely for fun. Would it wreak havoc on society or free up sex as something without the "duties" of parenthood?

And if cloning is replacing sex as the primary means of reproduction, could it become acceptable to raise children with your friend? Would it even be possible or would our biological instincts say no?

I know that I have a great guy friend who I know would make an awesome dad, but I'm not gay. And I just have this instinct that I must be romantically involved with the parent of my child, if I ever were to have one. But is this instinct biological or cultural?

Also, in more contemporary terms, I'm also half-amused, half-scared of the amount of sexual privilege a young white college-educated man has in New York City. It used to be the case that women had the sexual upper hand up until about age 30. Past 30 it was even until about the early-to-mid 40s when men would pull ahead. (Women for whatever reason are far more likely to date someone 10 or 20 years their senior than a young man is, after all).

This is no longer the case. Men, at least my demographic group of men, have it easy from day one. I'm not sure this is a good thing. Am I prudish to say that? Sex-negative, even?
I don't know. I consider myself pretty liberal on much if not all issues. "Social conservatism" for me has always meant to restrict the freedom of women in order to create a web of social control that would benefit men, i.e. patriarchy.

On the other hand, the way some of the guys in my generation are acting in terms of committment makes me question the live and let live approach to life I'm generally in favor of. But I mean, what's the alternative? Roll back the sexual revolution? Start doing quotas on university admissions to graduate more men? None of those things sound very appealing to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Beating the world record on scrabble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am the secret force behind the birther movement.
I've gotten a bit lazy lately, though. Need a new anti-Obama meme. All the crazy ones are sadly already taken.

A minor point to add, although it's more lulz than private: when people say Calvin and Hobbes I usually thought, until recently, they meant the philosophers, not the comic book characters.
(I still prefer the philosophers. Sorry.)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–25
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
It helps if you:
A) Can handle a rape joke
B) Are not a rapist yourself.
C) Are as obsessed about pop culture as I am, and preferably a bit more than that, if that's even possible.
D) Can spot the intentional grammar errors I've laid out in my profile but be smart enough to understand that it was all a test.
(Note: this last point may or may not be total bullshit).

P.S. In all seriousness, we will click if you can accept me not even pretending to enjoy chick flicks("I have to admit, I never thought I'd enjoy this movie, but I did!").
