My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I find myself looking for friends here because I am not the gregarious sort who revels in visiting bars [I don't drink],
nightclubs or other rowdy places where the more extroverted among us tend to congregate and do the social thing.

Being in the presence of large groups of people, especially those that are noisy, is tiring for me: I enjoy my solitude, or the company of one or two like-minded accomplices.

I am one of over six billion [and counting] jumped-up apes clinging to the surface of a minor rocky planet trapped in the gravity well of a Class G2 star somewhere in the outer reaches of an unexceptional spiral galaxy - one among billions of such islands of matter in the observable universe. I think that [as far as we know] we may be the only animals that feel the urge to pursue a life fraught with meaning, as if it must be so, and despair when it eludes us. I think that this is one of the pitfalls of having brains that specialise in pattern-recognition. [For more on this, look up "pareidolia".] I do not think that we occupy any special position in space and time or that homo sapiens is any more remarkable than any other creature, both extinct or extant, however much we may want to believe our disproportionately large brains set us apart. Knowledge, and technology, without wisdom and responsibility can be a dangerous thing.

I prefer to live an uncomplicated life and am no slave to fickle fashion or popular opinion, though I have been known to spend more than is probably sensible on my computer and consoles. In having an account here, am hoping to encounter someone with whom I can relate, and hold an virtual conversation with, wherever on this planet they may be. A real-world meeting is not obligatory: if ever there were an opportunity for that, it is not something I would feel comfortable rushing into.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Bobbing along. Trying to make the most of things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I wouldn't judge myself to be especially good at anything useful. I am not aware of having any special talents that would distinguish me from the those around me, at any rate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No idea. This is not something I would ask people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Primarily science fiction and fantasy,both comic and serious, with a smattering of simplified popularisations of military history, history and development of languages, genetics, prehistory, astronomy and modern physics [provided that the maths is explained to me from first principles. ANd without resrting to equations: I am terrible at maths.] Among the authors I enjoy are Isaac Asimov, Stephen Baxter, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, J.R.R. Tolkien, Guy Gavriel Kay, Tom Holte, Jasper Fforde, John Gribben, J.D. Barrow, and Raymond Feist.

There are a number of podcasts I listen to regularly, including [but not limited to] Skeptoid, Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, Bad Astronomy, Melvyn Bragg's In our Time, The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe, The Bible Geek, The Human Bible, Point of Enquiry, Mysterious Universe, BlenderGuru, The Higherside Chats :-P , Geekgirls Rule, and Secular Shethinkers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
To list more than what I need to remain alive-and sane, or refer to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, but that would be trite-possibly pretentious too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
From the age of 9 or thereabouts, I have spent a fair amount of time ruminating over the nature of the universe we live in,what Reality is, and whether we can ever know it, as well as what meaning we might reasonably hope to extract from our short lifespans.

I have heard it said that I am inclined to over-analyse my actions and motives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing my laundry, washing the supper dishes, trawling the internet for comic relief in the form of pseudoscience or harrowing the virtual dungeons of who-or whatever I do not owe any allegiance to, while collecting currency, rare items and experience points. [Yes, RPGs are my favourite gaming genre.]
Reading. [Of course]
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I dropped out a B.Sc degree course. It was a hare-brained endeavour from the start. Sheer folly. I was fresh out of school and more naive then.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel comfortable with that, and have something substantial to ask or comment on.

Saying "Hi" or "I like your profile" is unlikely to garner a response.
