I recently re-read my profile after grafting little pieces on to it between relationships for more than half a decade. I came to the conclusion it sounded wordy and pretentious. Which, in fairness, is a good summary. I hear people like self-effacing humour, what's your take?
I'm a South African guy living in West Van - which, as it turns out, is where all the other South Africans live (mostly the kind that I cringe at being associated with) I live 2 blocks from work and 2 blocks from the seawall though , so my 3 minute commute and I will deal, even if I'd rather have a sweet place in East Van.
I'm a skeptic - I think that claims of fact should be backed up with evidence. I greatly admire the work of people like James Randi, Steven Novella, Simon Singh, Rebecca Watson, etc. I think that Bill Maher is a dangerous crank masquerading in skeptic's clothing.
My sense of humour tends to be dry, with a peppering of really, really silly puns & fart jokes. I often try (and fail) to combine them into a sarcastic retort that is both a pun, and related to butts. I suffer chronic l'esprit d'escalier as a result.
To save you time, here's my list of traits that people consider dealbreakers:
Geek/Nerd. Transhumanist. Pro-GMO (with caveats). Leftist. Omnivore. Non-Breeder.
