My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh hey there, you!

If you want to listen to something while browsing OkCupid, this This American Life episode is something I would recommend.

I amplify and explore peculiarities. My usual inclination is to take the absurdity in my current situation and calculatedly compound on it, managing to always stay within bounds of protocol. It is not by conscious direction, and it has two sides.

As far as fun goes, this is a huge plus.

Oh, it's a famous mathematician's birthday? We should totally bake him a cake with his epitaph, and make a piñata out the German secret code machine he cracked so we can "take a swing" at "cracking" it too.

Breaking Bad party? Blue meth jello. Indisputably.

Drawing a squid? It only makes sense if it inks itself.

Made s'mores in the fireplace? We should probably read about the history of s'mores. The next logical step is to taste test all published s'more varieties, appraising and criticizing each for their merits and demerits, charting them - and then it will be clear how to invent the best variety (graham with banana wedges and cocoa-coconut-brownie. ;])

Another advantage of this inclination is that this gets me into a lot of ridiculously fun eccentric hobbies like organizing and participating in competitive puzzle solving events, grappling tournaments and indoor aquaponic gardening.

A disadvantage, although they always end up being things to laugh about, is that I'm prone to misadventure - I once camped in a rainforest unprepared for it to rain. I get along with people who find thrill and fun in misadventure.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Saving the internet! No really. I lead a task force of researchers and engineers in a project devoted to fixing the internet's problems with privacy and surveillance. I love to evangelize what we're doing so if you're curious please feel welcome to ask.

During my day job I'm a professional computer hacker. Between this and martial arts, I've essentially fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming a hacker ninja. I suppose the next natural step is to acquire a super power?

I'm building my skill and knowledge base as I save for a long term goal of building a self-sustainable home, and a host of other goals.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Self-motivation. Handling stress. Finding ironies and peculiarities in everyday things. Finding new solutions to problems. Balancing towers of drying dishes. Mismatching socks.

Enthusiasm! Or maybe that I'm wearing mismatching socks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh god so much to say about books, although for a few years now I've had less time to dedicate. I rotate though a long queue that gets longer faster than it gets shorter. Hofstadter. Rorty. Right now I'm reading in parallel through some science fiction (Herbert's shorts) and science history (Turing's Cathedral). I hope to own my very own copy of the Codex Seraphalanus.

Documentaries. Favorites include "The Emporer's Naked Army Marches On", "Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.", "Grizzly Man" and "Heaven's Gate". I don't allocate much time for watching movies/film.

Music I keep for the background except when I'm dancing at which point it doesn't matter what's playing. Recent background music includes Royksopp, Stereolab, Juana Molina, Garbage, Tom Waits, Harry Nilsson, Of Montreal, others. What's in the background depends on what I'm up to.

I'm some form of vegetarian the majority of the time. Favorite veggie dishes include eggs baked in avocado, quinoa pancakes with blackstrap molasses, and seiten sloppy joes, although there's a simple joy to a simple well prepared salad. Also spinach. It should be added to everything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* A man
* A plan
* A cam
* A yak
* A yam
* A canal (Panama)

But seriously, a project. I divine projects from thin air.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Quirky stuff. Whether or not chimps can crack their knuckles. What it would cost to replace public transit with a network of roller coasters. Why don't tree climbing gyms exist? And sometimes more serious but just as zany stuff, like how to save the world.

Things like this delight me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home chemistry, researching, designing or building something, developing or solving a puzzle, out to a social gathering, trying something new, working in the sketch pad or taking a night to myself to store up energy for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My cat Star is allowed on the bed. I have plastic glowing dinosaurs on my ceiling. I know every lyric to the Spice Girls' "WannaBe."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are inspired with beautiful ideas, you have a deep passion, you can't describe yourself despite access to an immense vocabulary, you don't mind the mud, you want to challenge me to a friendly competition.

Looking for the Calvin to my Hobbes.
