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.

These things are precious to me:
The Love and Support of my Family and Friends
my Health,
and Learning.

All else is Glamour.

Happiness cannot be bought. It is earned by the relationships we have with our fellow creatures rather than measured by the goods that possess us.

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. That 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.

Barring my love of gadgets, I prefer to live an uncomplicated life and am no slave to fickle fashion or popular opinion. I have come am looking for friendship, as the hours I work, my lack of a car, and reserved nature make it difficult for me to find people with similar interests and/or values, particularly in the small and fairly conservative city I live in.

Books: Primarily science fiction and fantasy,both comic and serious, with a smattering 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.] 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.

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.
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. [One does one's best not to dwell on it.]
