Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Incurable geek, information junkie, and space cadet.
I recently re-read my profile - I've come to the conclusion it
sounds wordy and pretentious. Which, in fairness, is a good
summary. I hear people like self-effacing humour, what's your
I'm a South African guy living in West Van - West Van is gross.
What I'm saying is - White privilege comes here to die and it's
time to get the fuck out.
I'm a skeptic - I greatly admire the work of 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, but deep down I think that puns
are the apotheosis of teh lulz. If that sentence hurt your brain,
don't worry, it was intentional.
To save you time, here's my list of traits that (some) people
Geek/Nerd. Transhumanist. Pro-GMO (with caveats). Leftist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've recently quit my job spending other people's money to pursue
education & entrepreneurship. As with all new ventures - this
has restricted my cashflow somewhat (read as: I R broke) - so
here's to frugal dates.
Awesome geeky stuff (going to cons, playing D&D, binging on
video games, Nerd trivia at Storm Crow, etc.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Data analysis, napkin math, guesstimating freight costs and forex,
eating pie, verbosity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty unkempt. I have a slouch. I'm reasonably tall. I'm
making an awkward joke (that might involve yelling). All of these
are valid first impressions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This section used to be long - it was in dire need of some
curating. I like the usual geek gallop of TV/Movie/Books from Adams
to Whedon and back - everybody does. Instead I'm going to write a
limerick (hey, it was good enough for Isaac Asimov):
There once was a guy named Ilan
It's Hebrew - please rhyme it with "pun"
With the tastes of a nerd
plus some stuff less-oft heard
Scale of relevance? Just about none.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people take online dating so seriously - human
interaction is the best kind of absurdism. Every time I send a
message, and I know I've suffered from foot-in-mouth disease, I
can't help but laugh at myself.
Why the organic, naturalistic fallacy bullshit industry is so
prominent in Vancouver.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've recently re-taken up internet dragonslaying.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I mansplain. Reflexively. It just sort of happens. I'm in a 12 step
program for it - Assholes Anonymous. All 12 steps are just "don't."
If I do it to you, please slap/stab me.
I don't take myself (or much at all, for that matter) very
seriously. Except the Anti-Vax crazies. They need to be herded into
a rocket and fired into the sun.
I find freckles extremely attractive.
