My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First and foremost I am a herper. For anyone that does not know, herper is short for herpetologist, either professional or amateur. I have a small personal zoo's worth of reptile, amphibian, invertebrate and fish pets. My collection includes venomous snakes (California native rattlesnakes). I prefer the above types of animals over mammals, partly due to fur allergies.

I collect rocks/minerals, shells and fossils. I am a SCUBA diver (with an interest in marine photography and archaeology, particularly 17th century Caribbean marine archaeology.. [yes, I do mean pirates]). I own firearms, a bow and a collection of swords and knives. I enjoy camping, hiking and backpacking, road trips, bouldering, spelunking (though I prefer caves that don't involve much contorting myself to squeeze through gaps, the feeling of getting stuck is the one thing that triggers claustrophobia for me), fishing, hunting, archery and target shooting. I would like to get into whitewater kayaking, rafting or canoeing (I have experience with whitewater canoeing), off-roading, falconry (eventually.. it is a huge commitment), mountain biking and paintball/airsoft.

I have been described as what hipsters strive to emulate but are able to turn off when they need to fit in to go to work. Without being able to read the mind of the person that said that, I can assume that they meant I am my own special kind of weird. I don't think that comment was in reference to this specifically, but I am also somewhat socially awkward, likely having to do with my social anxiety which for anyone not familiar with it (and since it can be caused by multiple things), is somewhat similar to having gotten PTSD from severe bullying (at least in my case).

I am an outspoken Atheist and Gender Egalitarian and I prefer to distance myself from people who's views do not change given new information. I make a habit of criticizing religion and certain forms of Feminism as being utterly ridiculous and harmful. If you have ever spent any time on Tumblr you probably have some idea what I am talking about. I should also mention that I dislike the very concept of political correctness and feel it is harmful to the principles of free speech.

I would say that I am mostly left leaning/libertarian (with the exception of libertarian economics).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am breeding roaches and reptiles to sell at reptile expos, as well as working on starting a small business making decorative terrariums and paludariums. I am trying to find a day job to help fund the process but my social anxiety has been a significant enough barrier that so far I have been unable to find a job.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am an exceptional driver (which unfortunately means I have a very short fuse for bad drivers), I am good at educating people about reptiles (and plenty of other mostly useless information such as WW2 tanks, 17th century pirates and naval vessels), I am good at talking people's ears off on sociopolitical topics (such as issues with police brutality, why circumcision is a human rights violation, men's issues that go ignored by everyone but MRA groups that nobody can stand, how broken and corrupt the US government is, the latest feminist foolishness, and my [utopian] solutions to many of those issues), and I am good at explaining things through the use of analogy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my red beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I enjoyed the Halo series and quite a few Star Wars books. Other than that, most of my reading is on controversial topics such as gender issues and religion.

Movies: I have a hard time remembering the specific movies I really liked because there are so many and I consume so much digital media. I mostly go for sci-fi/fantasy, action/adventure, comedy and the occasional thriller/horror. Since it is the only one I can think of at the moment and is, in my opinion, one of the most quotable movies, Step Brothers is by far one of my favorite comedies.

Shows: I have watched so many shows that is would be pointless to list them all. My preference is for sci-fi/fantasy, comedy, drama and crime drama. Some of my all time favorites have been Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, South Park, Futurama, Family Guy, Revenge, The 100, Primeval, Eureka, Chuck, Better off Ted, Doctor Who, Continuum, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, Supernatural, Parks and Recreation, Hell on Wheels and Dead Like Me. Like I said before, I have watched so many that it becomes pointless to list them all, though I doubt I even could if I wanted to.

Music: I listen to some top 40's stuff, early 2000's punk rock (like Bowling for Soup), some soundtrack and colonial/folk music (some literal sea shanties), and some classic rock. I am very selective about it but will occasionally listen to country (stuff like Beer for my horses).

Food: I absolutely love sushi (though I have a strong preference for the kind that is cooked and has salmon, cream cheese, avocado, and whatever else the particular sushi place puts with their variation of that roll, usually tobiko and some form of sauce.. though I will also go for a Philadelphia which is the raw version minus tobiko and sauce. I also apparently have a significantly higher tolerance to wasabi than most people, though I have almost no tolerance to pepper based heat.) I also like pizza, BBQ beef ribs, burgers, sea food, wild game, and salad. I like other stuff too but those are the main things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My flip flops and hiking boots.
My favorite hiking hat.
A solid internet connection at home.
A cellphone that can take a beating, get wet and has apps like tide charts or a compass.
Friends and family.
My big LED Mag-Lite.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How awesome it would be if someone started cloning miniature dinosaurs and they got into the pet trade.
Plans for the zombie apocalypse.
Crazy business ideas.
Video game and movie ideas.
Hair brain inventions.
Gender and social issues in the US.
How I want to decorate a tank.
What reptiles I want to add to my collection.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually Netflix and relaxing at my computer.
What I would prefer though, would be having friends over for a BBQ, a beach bonfire, camping or going on a cross country trip..
Or out in the desert road cruising for snakes around dusk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a bit of a geek and would like to get a collection of costumes to go to Renaissance fairs and Star Wars conventions with. I already have a set of Stormtrooper armor, but it needs some fixing up and I haven't used it since high school.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if we share a respectable number of interests and you think we might hit it off.
Some specific traits I am looking for:
-Outdoorsy

-Atheist
-Left leaning
-Not super politically correct
-Gender Egalitarian or Feminist (except the victim Olympics, constantly looking to be offended by everything and convinced that there are no men's issues type.)
-Like guns (or at least don't mind that I have them)
-Enjoy traveling, road trips and camping
-Don't mind that I am not a dog/cat person
-Intellectual
-Don't mind that, at least at the moment, I have no real income
