My self-summary
I used to think that Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers once conspired to project my life onto screen. Then I realised that some of the self-inflicted absurdities (missing two independent flights in one day, anyone?) defy the wildest immagination of the human mind.

Other than that, this is supposed to be a self-summary so here it goes:

The creature, the feature
The social science teacher

The reader, the dreamer
The accident-prone skier

The restive, the festive
The centre-left progressive

The jokester, the fraudster
The urban roller-coaster

The tactic, the hat-trick
The professional skeptic

The grumbler, the gambler
Friend of the bartender

The pliant, the tyrant
The occasional migrant

The fighter, the writer
The Wizzair frequent flyer
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching/researching political economy while trying to rescue every piece of my humanity from the jaws of academia. If you are one of my students, the fact that you were on my profile stays between us.

I am also learning to accept that there are a few things in life I will never understand. You know like wormholes, Middle Eastern politics or why I am desperately craving for Dunkin' Donuts every time I visit New York. Sign of wisdom I suppose.
I’m really good at
Well, I do have some awesome talents: Being a rock-star is not one of them, unfortunately. The closest I ever got was karaoke in Ljubljana and predictably caused lasting wounds in the hearts and minds.

My real talents mostly involve things that bounce and fly around. Tennis, ping-pong, squash, pool, football, foosball, cards (bridge and poker), ski/snowboard and clash of ideas.

Last but not least, I am amazingly skilled at popping bubble-wraps at an incredible speed. I consider the invention of the unpoppable bubble wraps the greatest tragedy since the H-bomb.
The first things people usually notice about me
The fountain of eternal wisdom in my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Don't you dare judge me by any of that. I share my favourite quote instead:

"Life is like a metaphor. Sometimes it's shit."
The six things I could never do without
1) Google/Wikipedia

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

3) Sarcasm

4) Spell-check. Or is it spellcheck?

5) A counterargument

6) Spare keys

6+1) My legendary luck
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How on earth Uncle Scrooge obtained all that gold.

The perfection of camouflaging skills in nature. Check out this dude, for instance : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckP8msIgMYE

Why "has kids but doesn't want them" is a missing option from the offspring status box.

Why people vote the way they do

How bloody our next political revolution is going to be

Have I already put sugar in my coffee?

Endogeneity and selection biases
On a typical Friday night I am
Cleaning up the mess left over from a typical Thursday. Metaphorically speaking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My bank details. Just ask.
You should message me if
If you find this Nietzsche quote inspirational: "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music".

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

If you have actual thoughts transcending the first few levels of the Maslow pyramid.

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

If there is something great that I can learn from you.
