My self-summary
I'm a serious young scientist, working long hours to uncover the neural underpinnings of behavior. Unfortunately my experiments require the cooperation of mice. It is very engaging work, but on account of the old murine attention-span can be frustrating. My animals are not of the same mental caliber as Mrs. Frisbee's acquaintances (lately of NIMH).

When not obsessing over recalcitrant rodents or my grad-school applications, I socialize with a small circle of friends, read about British history, play with my cats and practice Jiu-Jitsu and Karate. I am slowly writing the Great American Novel, a science-fiction epic about two small cats (one from a futuristic feline space colony based on Plato's Republic, the other a jolly English cavalier from the turbulent 1640s) who travel through time to combat Puritanism throughout the ages.
What I’m doing with my life
As mentioned above, I run behavioral experiments for a neuroscience lab in the City. We have several kinds of mutant mouse, and my job is to see if they have cognitive or behavioral abnormalities relevant to psychosis. I love it, and am applying to neuroscience PhD programs because I want to keep on doing this kind of work.
I’m really good at
-stats (for a non-statistician)
-the verbal sections of standardized tests
-spending hours reading about the neural substrates of 'X' or 'Y' in rodents
-making chili
The first things people usually notice about me
My mysterious, unplaceable accent
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
-Patrick O'Brian's historical novels
-British murder-mysteries, e.g. Agatha Christie's Poirot books
-David Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion and History of England
-other English histories (including Macaulay's, despite his smarmieness)
-Robert Massie's Dreadnought
-I've recently discovered P.G. Wodehouse (The chappie who came up with Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, don't you know?)
-Mark Twain
-classic tales of fantasy and adventure, e.g. by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne and H.P. Lovecraft (when he's not being racist)

Movies/TV:
- British people murdering each other, e.g. Inspector Morse,Poirot and the old Sherlock Homes with Jeremy Brett
-some animated comedies - American and Japanese - including Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Trigun (though it's not really a comedy) and The Venture Brothers
-British people in a more amiable and comic mood, e.g. Blackadder, Hot Fuzz and Red Dwarf
-I've enjoyed other things as well, e.g. All the President's Men and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
-Psych

Music: My tastes are eclectic. I like King Crimson, Cake, The Doors and QNTAL, for example.

Food:
-upscale beer
-upscale pizza
-real breakfast (meaning bacon and eggs)
-I have not yet grown out of swallowing pints of ice cream.
The six things I could never do without
-Ana* and Sir Oskar Warmuffin, my time-travelling Jacobite cats
-free public domain audiobooks (visit www.librivox.org)
-mice
-the bustle and amenities of a major urban center
-socializing with friends
-martial arts, exercise (I believe there's a Latin saying along the lines of "A healthy mind in a body that habitually shouts and kicks things")

*her full name is "Ana die kleine Zauberin, ueberhaupte Herrscherin der schwarze Magie"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-graduate school
-what side I would take in their Civil War if I were an Englishman in 1642
-brains; mice, mice and more mice (occasionally rats)
On a typical Friday night I am
If lucky, I am out socializing, or at least at home with my cats cooking and watching British people scheme to kill each other on the TV. In recent weeks I have been at the lab from 1 PM until 1 AM practically every day in order to finish an experiment before we have to move all our equipment in August. I hope to stop it before I turn into a mouse (they are nocturnal).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shadow-box when I'm alone in elevators.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–30
  • Near me
  • For short-term dating
You should message me if
You don't think there's anything unmanly about kittens. You think David Hume is bad-ass. You want me to lecture about how studying the inhibition of the startle-reflex by weak pre-stimulation can tell us about brain-circuits.
