My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nerd, California native, scientist/programmer, gamer, Homo sapiens sapiens, most humble man that ever lived, never sarcastic, always tells the truth, self-identifies as a pattern of neurochemical pathways with control of an organic machine, 100% serious all the time, and a fan of run on sentence fragments.

Serious hat on: (ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง
Based on past experience, these are the necessary characteristics for a partner:
Above average intelligence and reasoning capability: I enjoy life more when I surround myself with intelligent people.
A strong willingness/desire to communicate: Mutual understanding is paramount.
A shared cultural background: IE, a college education and a western oriented upbringing. Without this, values are usually too far apart to be compatible.
A (reasonably) healthy body.
Spunk/Confidence. I'm looking for a partner, not a walking stick.
Not a huge party person: I don't drink, smoke, or do loud drunken parties. If you require that to have fun, I'm not a good fit.
Serious hat off: ( ͡ᵔ ͜ʖ ͡ᵔ )

Random thoughts:
I've known that "Winter is Coming" since before it was cool.
According to a pair of white women from the 1920s, I'm an INTJ. They could probably also tell a lot about me from my handwriting and my date of birth.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Programming + Math + Biology. I work in a biomedical informatics research lab. So far I've been involved with projects involving personalized medecine, drug repurposing, and feature analysis.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Awkward rambling.
Bad Puns.
Nerdy stuff.
Being enthusiastic about intellectual discourse.
Making lists. (not really, but...)
Self Referential Humor
Capitalization For Dramatic Emphasis
Seeing things better than a blind man.
Having better handwriting than a paraplegic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Whatever it is, they don't usually say it. If I had to guess, it'd be the giant bio-mecha standing behind me.

It could be that I'm only 5'5, but, aw, who am I kidding? It's definitely the knife dripping a trail of blood down the street.

A little kid recently told me I look like Danielle Radcliffe. So maybe it's the lightning bolt shaped scar on my forehead.

People occasionally compliment me on my eyes. I usually react in the most awkward manner possible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Not in order.

Movies: Lord of the Rings, Most of the Superhero movies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Princess Bride... and more.

Webcomics:

Games:
If it's long and complicated, there's a pretty good chance I'll enjoy it, but more to the point...
Europa Universalis 4, League of Legends, Civilization, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Mass Effect, some puzzle/adventure games, and a bunch of other stuff along the same lines. Also, Twilight Imperium is my favorite board game.

Generally speaking, I like stories that present interesting what-ifs, have really interesting characters, or both. Also, I'm a sucker for anything with spell casters and/or dragons.

Music: I'm not a big music person, but I like the Decemberists and Tchaikovsky. Folksy stuff and classical stuff in general, but I'm not a sophisticated consumer.

Food: I'm not sure why this is important. I like all sorts of cuisines. I don't have a sweet tooth, I have a full set. Oh, and I don't drink alcohol. This is not for religious reasons, but because I can't stand the taste long enough to drink enough to have an effect, and I never got peer pressured into getting drunk in college.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Bottom rung of Maslow's hierarchy?

The six things I would never WANT to do without are:
Computer, Internet, Friends, Gaming, Humor, Intelligent Conversation.

Six silly things I wouldn't want to do without are:
English subtitles on Japanese anime.
A society that valued science and learning over political convenience.
Protons. Because otherwise the world would be too negative.
Bad Puns and Science Jokes.
Self referential humor.
Making the same joke twice.
Flying cars.
Mechanical pencils. Because normal pencils are so inconvenient.
Exceeding the original parameters of simple questions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Realistic science fictiony near-future stuff. Like how automatic cars will impact society in the future (pro-tip - don't start a career as a taxi-driver or a truck driver). Bio-printed organs. Neural prostheses. Playing pong with your mind - and the implications that has for realistic human "telepathy". The technological singularity. All the ways the world can go out with a whimper.

The relative morality of utilitarianism vs deontologism especially with relation to the Marvel Civil War. Whether the problems with utilitarianism are really just people being short sighted - for example, the reason you don't leave a man behind is not that it's the right thing to do, it's to inspire morale and confidence in the leadership.

What I should be doing to make my life better. As opposed to actually, you know, doing it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ideally, doing something with friends, usually involving some form of gaming. Recently, it's been trying to figure out how to make new friends in NYC.

I don't like clubbing or "wild parties." They usually either make me feel bored, awkward, irritated or all three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I admit nothing. Well, delicious food. I'm willing to admit delicious food into my stomach.

I think your religion is silly. You're still pretty cool though.

I dissected a human cadaver once.
(As the main focus of a year long course on human anatomy, using bodies donated to science which were abnormal and not useful to the medical schools that got them)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You would like me to make some puns for you.

You would like to discuss something related to science, the future of society/the world/technology, politics, philosophy, gaming, game design, the meaning of re('\w*'), or geek/nerd culture.

You'd like to. As far as I know, straight men don't get a lot of messages on this site, so every message (that's not an obvious bot) is a delight.
