My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Existentially, I may be.
Quantum mechanically, I am very likely.
Physically, I am.

I look at the world very differently than everyone I know. I am neither chauvinist nor feminist, but I do not believe that men and women are equal any more than I believe that civility is equal to the color blue. The comparison does not make sense. Equality is a property that belongs in the realm of mathematics, not social sciences. If one truly believed in equality, there would be only unisex bathrooms, and marriage would not exist because no person would have any greater value than another, thus all people become interchangeable. I may be composed of interchangeable subatomic particles, but how those particles are arranged makes a significant difference.

I believe that although physical beauty is not the most important thing in a relationship partner, it is not nothing, as it will have some bearing on long term happiness.

I am a citizen of the world. Ideas should be free to flow anywhere for the betterment of humanity. Money, goods, and labor should not flow freely for exactly the same reason.

I believe that most of the world's problems could be solved if people kept in mind the long term consequences of their actions.

I believe that no child should be born unless there is at least one person willing and prepared to take care of it until it can be a happy and productively contributing member of society, and the birth mother is willing to go through the ordeal of pregnancy.

I believe that people who live in or near the habitats of non-reasoning carnivorous animals have a valid reason to own a firearm. I don't believe that anyone else does. This does NOT mean that I am trying to take yours away or that I dispute your right to own one.

I believe that when two people love each other, and they believe that their lives are better together than apart, they should get married.

I like to solve problems. It is one of the reasons why I chose to be an engineer.

I enjoy science fiction because it offers new sets of problems to be solved and new constraints by which the solutions must abide.

Don't let my list of beliefs scare you off. This is just my way of standing out amongst the sea of profiles on OKCupid.

I am loyal, honest, and electric.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I design microchips, and the work is enjoyable. I volunteer with a service organization. I sing in karaoke bars.
I once derived a property of prime numbers on my own without any reference to mathematical texts. At the time I did not know if anyone had previously documented this property. Some Google searching proved it was a special case of a more general property already known to exist. Oh well.
I put solar panels on my house in 2006. It would have cut my electric bill by 85% had I not picked up some house-mates who use about as much juice as the panels put out. In 2011 I added solar hot water and a radiant barrier in the attic for additional energy savings.
I've visited 17 countries so far, plus the one I live in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Acting as a translator when both people are speaking English, but can't understand each other. Karaoke. Being Kermit the Frog. Behaving ethically.
Giving and receiving massages - I have no formal training in this area, but most people who have experienced one of my massages would have guessed I had.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm standing in their way, unless I'm singing, in which case they notice my voice and my strange taste in music. That I seem to know something about everything, though I don't claim to be an expert about most things.

It is not the first impressions that matter, however. People who take the time to hang out with me appreciate my twisted literalist sense of humor, and the lengths I will go to take care of my friends.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Remember, people, this section is about FAVORITES, not a list of everything you have liked.

Books: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Gödel Escher Bach, Winning the Oil Endgame, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.
Movies: Sneakers or Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. I recommend Gasland and Gasland II.
Music: The Art Of Noise, the Best Of Collegiate A Capella, The Uninvited. Anything I can sing in karaoke.
Food: several Ethiopian Wats, fresh lansones from the Philippines. I'll eat almost anything, though I've found I don't enjoy apricot, broccoli, fresh tomatoes, borscht, licorice, chunks of ginger, pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, or butterscotch.
Live shows: Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure. If his show ever comes to your area GO SEE IT!!!
TV: The Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Shameless, Defiance. I wish Dexter hadn't ended, but I understand why it was a requirement to maintain the reputation of the writers. Eureka was fun while it lasted, as were Battlestar Galactica and Stargate SG-1. I was given a DVD containing the 1st and 2nd seasons of the BBC sitcom "Coupling". I don't know when I have laughed so hard. I bought the 3rd season for myself. I am actively trying to prevent myself from becoming a fan of new shows so I will spend less time watching TV at all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

1. Existence (fundamental constants of the universe taking on their present values, corporeality)


2. The requirements for life (temperatures between the freezing point of CO2 and the limit of human heat dissipation, atmospheric gasses in atmospheric proportions and pressures, a place to rest without drowning, fresh liquid water, food)


3. The requirements for sanity (sufficient sleep, an appropriate balance of vitamins and minerals, occasional human contact and conversation)


4. sanitation facilities (roll of toilet paper and a shovel, or any modern restroom, a means to wash myself)


5. modest wages (a means to ensure that needs 3 and 4 will be met long into the future)


6. Some level of comprehension of the world around me.


Ask a literal question, get a literal answer. Perhaps you would rather ask me what are six things beyond these necessities that I would most strongly prefer not to do without?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

... why Democratic politicians seem to think that they were elected only to compromise with those who voted against them and Republican politicians seem to think corporations are people, money is speech, women are property, and skilled human labor is a commodity.



The original question here was "With whom would you trade brains?" The answer of course is whichever brain trading merchant had the best rating at the Better Business Bureau.

If the intended question were "If you could choose to have a copy of all someone else's memories overlaid upon your own, such that after the period of the trade, you could access both sets, whose would you choose to copy?" Perhaps Tony Robbins, as he seems a happy, well adjusted achiever. Perhaps some happy, beautiful lesbian, just to see what life is like on the other side.



More recently, I have been trying to figure out why there seem to be so many more bisexual women on OKCupid than offline, and why my match percentage seems to increase with distance rather than decrease.

What is the mean and standard deviation of the match score at the top of everyone's match list? At the moment, my top match is 99%. Are most people's top matches that high? Back when my top match was 89%, I found out that someone I know had a 99% match with someone else. In her opinion, he was a jerk. (Update: In 2009 OKCupid changed its algorithm to err on the side of matching when it does not know anything about one match participant in a personality dimension. This boosted many of my matches above 90%, but most of them have answered fewer than 50 questions. In late 2010, something else changed because suddenly I have much more in common with my top matches.)

xkcd does a good job of expressing how I feel about this.


Lastly, I have been wondering why someone would accept a first date, then choose to break that date without ever meeting. This has happened to me multiple times, on and off OKCupid. If you don't want to date, don't accept the offerred date in the first place. If you do want to date, but aren't sure about this particular person, at least reserve judgement until you spend 5 minutes alone together. Isn't that the point of dating?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Singing in a karaoke bar, or in transit to an event for my service organization. Failing such opportunities, probably catching up on the stack of shows on my DVR.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had not realized that my status had been listed as "seeing someone" until OKCupid sent me a birthday message implying that I did not need new matches.
I need to check my profile more often. Apparently I had not realized OKCupid thought I was looking for just "new friends" when "long term dating" would be closer to accurate.
