My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Primarily looking for new friends right now, new people and ideas and places.

I get along very well with people who are technically minded (a physics math chemistry engineering type). People who want to fix problems.

I like goal-setters and people with strong, actionable ambitions and opinions; who know where they're at and wanna talk about it.

I don't drink, and derive more enjoyment from hanging with people who do same, but this is totally not a requirement. I also have great times with ravers.

I like talking with people in technical, political, and philosophical realms. Let's talk about books you've read on queer theory, or economics, or non-pop-sci science.

I'm in favor of discarding traditions in favor of less limitations and restrictions.

I like riding bikes at night. I like playing games of the board and card varieties. I'm a touchy feely cuddle-type.

I am inquisitive, bodacious, and happy-go-lucky

I am also vegan, feminist, and intolerant of mysticism.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a tutor. I teach people how to think more clearly. I love watching people's faces as they dunk their head in the bucket of revelation.

The best thing about it is that revelations tend to come in waves.

I also work on learning new things, whether I can tutor them or not. Lemme know if there's anything out there you wanna help me learn.

03/2014 -- Since the start of the year I've been bungee jumping, contra dancing, swimming in hot springs, riding across desert sands in a vehicle without seat belts, at pub trivia night, at the goth club bunker (before it closed), been on the crew for a pyrotechnics crew, been at a blanket fort building competition, played too many board games to count, played some pick up ultimate frisbee, hosted some couch surfing germans, went to a party dressed up as a ring tailed lemur, been naked in a hot tub with people whose names I did not know before.. well the list keeps on going.

Point is, help me make every day an adventure, with many things to learn.

Also I don't drink or do drugs. It's fine if you do, but it's extra points if you don't.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to help clarify things in life. I like the fluidity of choosing when exhibit my rational side, but I also enjoy nonsense. I feel like I'm good at finding a comfortable spot to be at and letting my mood fit a spot on the aforementioned spectrum.

I feel like I have a reliably good temperament. When thing turn bad all around me (not common), my response involves figuring out a reasonable course of action and working towards ameliorating the situation.

I strive to be a clear communicator, and am working on my brevity.

I strongly seek people who can help me become more than I currently am; those who can offer insights and help me expand.

I do outdoor things occasionally, and have done more than 40 hours of each of the following: skiing, skating, biking, rock climbing, fixing bikes, hiking, kayaking, and canoeing. I tend to catch on quick to new activities.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get a lot of confused looks at first. I don't like rules I find unimportant. I do like openness, communication, and trust.

I'm pun friendly.

I am a touch slut and a cuddle bear. I like hugs and head rubs and the like. It's really exciting to be cuddly with new people. It's really comforting to be cuddly with friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A friend once told me "the purpose of art is to shed light the human plight." But from my interpretation of this, I feel like some pretty technical books meet the art requirements. Anyways, here's some buzzword soup:

Kafka, Daniel Kahneman, Steven Pinker, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, A People's History of the United States, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Nonviolent Communication.

These probably fit the definition of art much less, yet I still found meaning in these author and works:
Philip K Dick, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Asimov's Foundation Trilogy, Neal Stephenson, Jonathan Safran Foer.

When I watch movies (not often) or TV (a rarity), I most look for new ideas and connections between ideas. Miyazaki's The Wind Rises fit me, likewise the TV show Black Mirror.

I am not interested in most movies labelled "comedy", or any TV show with a laugh track.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Understanding intent versus literalness
- Other great minds around me
- Learning more, from you, from books, and from my mistakes
- A smile that says, 'I see what you did there'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A sample of things I think about might be:
gender issues, societal roles, veganism, physics, philosophy, math, language, function of governance and government, finding meaning without creating artificial meaning, food, how to bias my wording on OkCupid such that I automatically deal with the Dunning Kruger Effect.

I'm interested in all manner of life's puzzling questions, and can sometimes find answers.

What is the best way to convince people to change conterfactual beliefs for rational ones?

How to beat people in board games.

Below isn't something i think on often, but it's interesting and also the kind of thing I'd like people to show me if they come across. Here are the sounds of the Southern Ocean. I think they're glorious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Boring question. New question:
What's your favorite piece of internet?

Long term favorites have been
Tim Minchin's Storm 10 mins
The Greatest Speech Ever Made 3.5 mins
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My phone has about 3 days worth of audiobooks on it and about half a days worth of music.
