My self-summary
Hello. You have found the profile of an introverted liberal atheist.

Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I grew to love the peace, quiet, and low traffic there. Then I moved to Baltimore, and I love the not-being-bored-senseless here.

I'm a quiet person until you get to know me. Then people notice my dry humor. But quietness and introversion don't mean shyness, nope; it just means that I have a lot of ideas and I just need time to capture and develop them. I'm outgoing, I'm very assertive, and I'll let people know what's up.

I'd much rather be on the road than in the club, and more willing to be in nature. I work hard and I play hard. And I dream big. Maybe idealistically big. I'm okay with this, though.

My passion is (land!) transportation. And engineering. And land transportation engineering. Highways, highway interchanges, intercity high-speed rail, urban underground metro systems (damned light rail), cycleways and rail-trails, and I'm a huge advocate of improving all of these at once because the solution to traffic problems is not simply "more lanes".

I'm car-free and plan to be that way for as long as possible. For those times that I need to drive, I have a Zipcar membership. For everything else, though, I bike. To work, to the store, to Philadelphia, my bike and I are inseparable (well... unless you crash into me, but please don't do that).

...I feel like I just went to a job interview.
Geez.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, trying to save up the money needed to get myself back into school, pretending to be a sci-fi writer, popping out a 100-mile bike ride a week, job hunting like hell, working with a group to rebuild and extend a bike trail in Baltimore City, going to meetings and presentations in my efforts to help improve bicycle facilities in Maryland and the United States overall, volunteering around the city on a number of things.

As for "get back into school", the plan is to be a transportation planner, particularly a bicycle and pedestrian coordinator.
I’m really good at
-writing, or so I'm told
-bicycling
-drawing
-forgetting negative signs
-navigation (the human GPS, they call me)
-striking up random conversations with strangers
-planning, because I plan to be a planner
The first things people usually notice about me
People think I look young. The most common guess seems to be 22.

They also notice my height.
It's cool, though; I'm fuel efficient.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the tomes
No specific preference, but likely science fiction, nonfiction, and autobiographies. I'm also terrible and read scientific literature more than novels. I've been trying to find new books to read, though, especially (again) science fiction.

the pictures moving around
Superhero films, action films, or horrible low-budget movies (because when you need to laaaaaugh...)

the intertubes
Whaaaat? I like reading things.
xkcd, Cracked, TV Tropes, Nostalgia Critic (TGWTG), Bikeyface.

the picture box the shameless streaming
Right now I'm regularly watching The Atheist Experience and The Legend of Korra.
In the semi-recent past, there was Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey and Avatar: The Last Airbender, because it was freakin' awesome.
...yeah, I don't watch much TV. I'm more of an interaction kind of guy.

the artful soundwaves
Metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Moonsorrow, blahblahblah etc etc many many more), rock, electronica, and various other odds and ends (like stuff from TV shows and video games... oh, you know you have some too).

the fuel for my ambitions
I know I love Chinese, Thai, and Italian food. I'm willing to try a lot of new things. Also, I fail miserably at becoming a vegetarian.
The six things I could never do without
1. My legs
2. My glasses
3. Access to knowledge
4. Freedom of movement / travel
5. SCIENCE!
6. Oxygen
7. Water
8. Gravity
9. Smartassery
10. Defiance
11. Rhyming
12. Original answers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
..."the future", the most original answer for this question ever
...what other major scientific leaps or inventions are yet to come, and what new discoveries will completely shake our current understanding of everything
...why no one here seems to like cats
...how anyone can cover ancient Rome's artifacts in graffiti; what's wrong with you
...when I'm going to find the time to train for a bike ride to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh already; York (Pennsylvania) gets boring after like six times
...why Stonehenge is closely surrounded by three major roads, wtf
...the day that I'll be able to dust off my passport
...the various major social issues in this country today: race relations, the horror that is rape culture, and the rising anti-vaccination movement; all very unpleasant things, but yes, they stay on my mind... and yes, I may or may not be a bit political
On a typical Friday night I am
Does anyone ever have a typical Friday night? I know I ain't the only one who's off doing a bunch of random things.

Maybe I'm out doing a meetup. Or hanging out with friends (or making new ones). Maybe exploring new places in the city? Or sitting at home doing all those things that us nerds be doing--taking wiki walks (or xkcd-walks... something), laughing at cat videos... Or I just go to sleep, to counteract the joy of waking up obnoxiously early, as I do. Or it's the last Friday of the month, and since this is Baltimore and I have a Bike, one can expect that there might be a Party or something like that piquing my interest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm Batman.
Shh, it's a secret.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you're an atheist or an agnostic, definitely. Pagans and wiccans also very much welcome.

Or if we have similar ideas.
Or if you think outside the box (nope, being a conspiracy theorist doesn't count).
Or if you know of some nice bar or place in Baltimore I really need to visit.
Or if you'd like to go ride bikes sometime.
Or for any other reason.
Or for no reason! That's cool too. I love surprises.

However...
If you're conservative (or libertarian) or super-religious, we're very likely to not get along. Anyone who has a bias against any group (anti-atheist, racists, homophobes, black separatists) is not welcome at all. And... if you're anti-science, then we are two fundamentally different people and you would be better off not messaging me... then turning off your computer and selling it, because HELLO
