My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Yes it's long. Don't make that face.

If you take a random sample of Woody Allen quotes, you'll have a rough idea of who I am. The following one is a prime candidate for summarizing it all: " I have no idea what I am doing. But that never stopped me from plunging in with enthusiasm".

Which means I have awesome talents of course. Unfortunately though, I am not even close to being a rock-star. The closest I ever got was when I ventured onto the treacherous waters of Karaoke in Ljubljana and caused lasting wounds in the hearts and minds. I think I am still a wanted man over there.

On to more serious matters, I tend to think of myself as a person of thought, a true Libra I suppose. I often find myself playing devil's advocate for the least likely causes as I find instances of broad agreement inherently suspicious. On the other hand, I am not a huge fan of routinized order in my everyday life, I like to bow to the power of pure randomness every now and then. Que sera, sera.

I often oscillate between details and the big picture. I can get lost in long processes of thought by musing about people reading the news on the crowded tube with such a twisted body posture that I struggle to see how any of that information ever makes it to the brain. I like to discern the absurdities of human interaction, the “nice to meet you”s, the “let’s catch up sometime”s and the “can I buy you a drink”s. I am a keen observer of social formulae. At the same time, I equally enjoy those occasional epiphanies when you come up with the Grand Theory of Humanity, only to be proven wrong by those annoying little details on the ground. Details can hurt as much as satisfy.

I never quite grew out of games. You show me a chessboard and put a monkey on the other side, you just made my day and made me a new friend (the monkey, not you). If we are on opposing teams in Diplomacy or Risk, do not trust any alliance you have agreed upon with me. You give me a deck of cards and I either show you a lame trick or play the game you name. Bridge is my passion. You take me to a bar with full of dartboards or pool tables, you have just trapped yourself in the land of no return. You tell me a logical puzzle, you have just caused me a sleepless night. You challenge me for a tennis/squash game, well that would be great!

I highly value originality, repulsed by mindless conformism, skeptical of conventions and dress codes, have a deep compassion for underdogs, I have a solid moral framework where certain individuals just don't fit in, I like single-malt, I despise bigotry of any sort, I don’t mind ignorance as long as it is supported by healthy self-awareness and a good heart.

At the end of the day, however, what really matters is whether we can have a laugh and strike a chord. If you are still reading, we probably can.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am teaching and researching political economy at uni. Please don't ask me what that is because I am not sure myself. If you are one of my students, this stays between us.

In the meanwhile, striving to become a wiser and better person. There is plenty of room for improvement.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seriously? Let's do this the other way around.

I am pretty bad at :

Brevity (scroll up for evidence), tasks involving bureaucratic non-sense, winking, singing, drawing, accents, the pop-culture part in pub quizzes, fine-motor skills, using semicolons; and probably a lot more but I don't want to commit a profile-harakiri.

I am pretty good at everything else obviously. Especially if there are balls, cards or snow involved. Snowballs, yes!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"You must be French". "You must be Italian". "You must be Roberto Benigni".

No. No. No.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:

-Joke or Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
-Moonlight by Antal Szerb
-Lord of the Rings - anyone who has read it and doesn't list it here is either a snob or a liar or probably both.
-Robert Merle's futuristic works
-Love in the time of Cholera by Marquez - now that he passed away I can say this: 100 years of solitude is overrated
-1984
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Movies:

-Incendies ( haven't heard of it? It is grossly underrated)
-Pulp Fiction
-Fight Club
-Dr. Strangelove
-Last King of Scotland
-Burned After Reading by the Cohen Brothers - yes, you've heard me, NOT the Big Lebowski
-5x2 by Francois Ozone (especially its main song)
-12 angry men

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Music: Really depends on my mood, but a more or less representative snapshot would be:

-G N' R
-Bob Dylan/Leonard Cohen
-Jazz in general
-Rodriguez (aka Sugarman), the ultimate underdog

And the list of my guilty obsession with trashier stuff - Placebo, Cranberries, James Blunt, Bon Jovi, Kings of Leon, Greenday, Coldplay, Nirvana - would be endless.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shows:

-The Ali G show. "So Victoria, does you want your child to become a famous football player like his dad, or a famous singer like Mariah Carey?"
-Dance shows, especially Tango
-Breaking Bad and I still feel guilty for remaining loyal and sympathetic to Mr. White until the bitter end
-Big Bang Theory

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Food:

-Brassói Aprópecsenye. I bet you all know what that is. Otherwise, google it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

And my favourite quote: "Life is like a metaphor. Sometimes it's shit."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Google/Wikipedia

2) Double-macchiato (No Sir, I believe it is NOT the same thing as a double-espresso with milk, but please do keep the change)

3) Irony

4) Spell-check. Or is it spellcheck?

5) An objective opinion

6) A second chance

6+1) My legendary luck
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make the best argument ever that will land me millions of references among future generations of social scientists.

Why people vote the way they do.

Whether every human emotion and instinct really just boils down to some chemical reaction.

How on earth has camouflaging come about in evolution. For this dude, for instance : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckP8msIgMYE

What goes around, does it really come around?

Have I already put sugar in my coffee?

Endogeneity

Selection bias

Is Messi a human?

...whether I think too much?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reinventing the wheel over a beer or two. Maybe still laughing at a joke I heard on a typical Thursday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I have an impostor-syndrome, ie. a highly skewed perception and self-reflection on your achievements and failures. And thanks to the medical profession for giving it a name, it's cool to have a syndrome!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you don't want to spend two hours over a drink talking about the weather.

If you think the Ministry of Silly Walks by Monty Python is hilarious.

If exchanging a few written words doesn't cause you physical/mental pain because I would feel terribly responsible.

If you have a healthy dose of critical attitude towards the conventional axis of power in society.

If your vocab is amazing so that I can learn from you. Which makes you amazing, by extension, of course.
