My self-summary
I'm, evidently, pretty hardcore INTJ according to the Myers-Briggs personality test - If you subscribe to that sort of thing and care to know.

I don't drink alcohol very much anymore. Red wine on that rare occasion that I do. I'm not good at drugs, and alcohol is no exception. Pretty much, I just use caffeine.

I play video games. A lot, sometimes. I watch a bit of TV/movies most days. I'm a homebody. If I were rich, I'd probably be that mysterious recluse living in the big mansion on whose lawn the local kids do things that cause me to yell at them about getting off my lawn.

I guess I'm pretty sarcastic and I have a strange sense of humor. I'll laugh at anything. Nothing is off-limits. Nothing. Doug Stanhope is my favorite stand-up comic, ever. And if you can laugh at him, then you'll understand my humor just fine.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a cartographer by trade - over eight years, now. Sounds impressive, no? Well, a monkey could do my job. It pays bills, though. But, whether on the clock or not, I can be found giving no fucks about everything.

Trying to lose that last 15-or-so pounds so I can finally get my goddamn six-pack abs. That goal has been around for years, actually. Been between 180 and 200. I'm between 180 and 185 now. I figure 170 will put me at less-than 10% body fat. I've been losing again the last several months. Hopefully by the time this winter is over, I'll be as shredded as I could want... Jesus. See that? Don't get me started on weight/diet/exercise. I could talk about that shit forever.

And speaking of...

I keep up on politics and economics/finance quite a lot. And if you get me going on that, I won't shut up either. Well, I do. But only because people disengage when they realize that I'm playing a different sort of game with my politics than they are. Most folks talk left/right. I just talk freedom/tyranny. People don't want to have a serious discussion like that. So I drone on about "The Man", and "voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil", and "all interactions should be voluntary only", etc., etc., so on, and so forth. But, they just want red versus blue. Their team is better than your team, blah blah blah.
As for the economics and finance? Well... ain't no one got time fo' dat.
I’m really good at
I'm super analytical, logical, dispassionate, and objective when it comes to examining information. People hate it, actually. I think I may come off as a bit lawyerly. So, when it comes to determining the correct, or efficient, or easiest, etc. thing, I can figure it out - which is good. If you speak imprecisely, I'll want to correct it. I usually won't unless it's important to the discussion. I guess maybe you can now understand that I don't have any business socializing all that much. I guess the reason for all this is that I like Truth. It's so simple, symmetrical. It's a beautiful thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
The Market for Liberty by Linda and Morris Tannehill for non-fiction. This book changed my life.

The Stand by Stephen King is my favorite fictional story (not just book, but story) ever told. I love post-apocalypse stuff.

Some honorable mentions include The Most Dangerous Superstition, World War Z, The Dark Tower series, the Johannes Cabal series.

Movies:
My favorite film is Terminator 2. I know, it's a simple action film and is in no way epic or thought-provoking. I like it because it brings me back to my childhood when I used to watch it all the time. (Yeah, I had that kind of upbringing. No helmets, no seat belts, R-rated flicks, etc. It was awesome.)
Some others include, George Romero flicks (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead), The Road, Children of Men, In Bruges (how is this movie not more well-known?), V for Vendetta, Platoon, Sunshine, The Boondock Saints, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Cloud Atlas, Pandorum, Fight Club, A History of Violence, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit films.

Shows:
The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Z Nation, Vikings, and Rick and Morty are the shows I try to keep up on. I'll go back through and find other/older shows I never watched and blow through those in a few days/weeks, depending on how long it ran.

Music:
Metal. Metallica is my all time favorite band. I know. They're assholes but I haven't heard any other band that can write a hook as consistently good as theirs typically are. I like a bunch of others, too - Slayer, The Sword, Pantera, Dream Theater, Ozzy, Dethklok, etc. I also listen to a good amount of classic rock - Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, CCR. I also like some other more contemporary rock like Tenacious D, Alice in Chains, Nirvana. I like weird crossover stuff when I can find it, too - Epica, Eluveitie, Skindred, and Narjahanam for example.

Food:
I'm a caveman. Paleolithic diet and fitness. The general idea behind it is to eat meat, eggs, veg, nuts, seeds and some fruit. No grains, refined sugar or other processed junk.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy. Politics. Economics, somewhat.

And, though I hate to, I spend far too much time thinking about my job. I used to not need to think about it beyond when I was there, but now the nature of it has me keeping track of shit even when I'm not at the office.
On a typical Friday night I am
Video games, TV, or "Magic: the Gathering" with some friends. Obviously, I'm a real blast at parties.

Anyway, like I put before, I'm a homebody. I understand this is not all that appealing for many would-be girlfriends. But, I can't help it. I'd rather just be alone. Or with a small group of people I like, I suppose. Not drinking really throws a damper on going out as well. Because, yes, I do need to drink to tolerate the public. And it's not worth it to me to drink just to tolerate the otherwise insufferable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had a vasectomy. I did it for the children.
You should message me if
I suppose I'm ultimately looking for a serious relationship. So if that's something you want as well, and you weren't terrified by what I've written above, then hit me up.

Also, I send out first-messages sparingly (unless we "liked" each other). And they're usually shorter these days. I've found it's not worth putting a lot of effort into messaging females, who may or may not be interested, on here because the majority don't reply. Not to me anyway. You may be thinking, "Be persistent!" And I'd be thinking, "No, thank you. I don't play stupid games. You either want to talk to me or you don't. I'm not jumping through hoops, bitch." ;)

I guess I'm open to hook-ups, too... Though - shockingly - that sort of thing has never really panned out for me. I guess introverted nerd-types don't have a lot of game.
