My self-summary
I build and turn wrenches (construction and professional mechanic). I find it rewarding to see my accomplishments at the end of a project. I can get cabin fever if left to my own devices so finding someone to get out and go on adventures with is important to me. I am hobby collector? I enjoy trying new activities would be another way of putting it I guess. During the summer you will usually find me in my inflatable kayak or piloting my Raft, full of hapless victims, down class 3 - 4+ rapids and running around aimlessly in the wilderness with a large pack full of gear strapped to my back. I thrive on the energy of those around me and would love it if you had adventures to invite me on.
What I’m doing with my life
Not enough! Gotta start cramming in more fun since I only get one right?
I’m really good at
"Hold my beer and watch this!!!............"

BOOM! CRASH! BAM!

"9-1-1 what's your emergency?...."
The first things people usually notice about me
My "In your face" interface!

I am Jack's malevolent discontent for the structured social order of modern society....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
SHOWS Netflix... I watch Archer, Dexter (used too, lame end though grrr!), Walking dead, It's always sunny in Philadelphia, Futurama, Family guy, South park, House (love that smug bastard) documentaries.

MOVIES ALL documentaries, B-grade horror is AMAZING, Horror in general, anything with zombies and anything mindf#@%k-y like Shutter island, fight club, memento, apocalypse now, One flew over the cuckoo's nest, Clockwork orange, Full metal jacket etc.... so pretty much all Stanley Kubrick?

BOOKS I don't read as much as I should but I do love Me some Chomsky, Zinn, Tom Clancy, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Lincoln Child, Terry Goodkind, Kalle Lasn and I have found myself reading textbooks for fun lately as well...

MUSIC This is where my honesty will probably lose you... Old school punk, metal and dirty/punk ska are the favorites but generally if its not country, pop, rap or techno it's cool. Also love grind, crust, thrash, metal.
NO, Green day, Blink 182 and Avril Lavigne are NOT punk, sorry to break the news to you.
The six things I could never do without
1) My left eyebrow
2) Scarlett begonias and a touch of the blues...
3) SQUIRRELS! I don't own any (you can't own a skwerel, they gotta be free man!)
4) Anarchist cookbook. Yum!
5) Wild mushrooms!
6) C6-H12-O6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to break the ties between corporate greed and political power. Thinking of ways to escape the monetary driven, disposable single use item paradigm of modern society while keeping some of the fringe benefits.

The modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive duractance. This video might help if you would like to see what I'm talking about.

On a typical Friday night I am
Deploying my R.e.i. instant home in an extravagant location. Adventuring in my Vw in the woods.
Having a beer with my bro's!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Zapp Branaggin is my idol and I am the "Nightman"... I cometh...
You should message me if
You aren't religious, this is important because I'm not just an atheist, I'm anti organized religion. Spirituality is wholly encouraged if you don't use it to distort your world view and judge others. You like beer but don't have to drink everyday. Seriously people, moderation is good, try it.

Messaging goes both ways, prove you believe in equality.

Are you brave enough to take it?
