My self-summary
Ladies, please stop with the alluring shots and seedy offers. Yes, I know my geeky glasses and churchboy combover give you the moans, but I'm tired of the attention! So, no more lengthy prose about the weighty matters. No more enticing lists of worldly wonders too varied for one person to hope to enjoy.

JK! :P And I'll try to get some better shots. Use a little imagination. Now for the Wall of Text:

Disclaimer on Identity
We all struggle to define ourselves -- a struggle which I find largely unnecessary. I think identity is more a relic of our evolutionary past, when we had to fill roles in our social groups. This made sense at a tribal level, with few enough people and specific enough tasks that our brains could reasonably model the entire group. In fact, according to Dunbar's number (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunbar's_number) the size of our social groups is directly linked to the size of our brains. And our brains have not grown significantly, but we live in cities with millions, rather than tribes with dozens.

My point?
I don't neatly fit into common categories. I clearly tend geeky, but have had social circles including Church-going ultimate frisbee players (despite being an atheist), pothead Wiccans and anarchists (despite being incredibly studious and socialist), Vegas partiers, of course gamers and the oddball off here (I'm definitely an oddball). Lists are never comprehensive, but hopefully you get the idea -- I'm socially flexible.

My thoughts...
I tend to define myself more by my philosophical thoughts than my social roles. I will geek out over any scientific discussion, and doggedly pursue world news (with a rather damning view of humanity, but that's another story). Of course I have a passionate (scientific) understanding of politics and religion (the "weighty matters"), but find most of those social groups discussed earlier too fragile for such contentious topics.
What I’m doing with my life
What hopefully everyone is doing: exploring it. Like any good explorer, my first goal was to get a lay of the land. To that end, I climbed to a very nice perch in the heart of what I consider the most enticing city in the world. The tech capital and the most liberal city in the richest nation on the planet... and that's just the business card. That said, I haven't been to Europe yet, so...

In more mundane terms, I also program games for a living. I have dreams to share, but some of that is hush-hush... at least for public consumption!
I’m really good at
Aside from the obvious (computers)...
I will trounce you in ping pong, splash with you on a raging river, drink with you to tears (anybody's), smoke with you to just about any movie known to our brain-rotted generation (the smoking being necessary to bring out the missing philosophical gems everywhere). Are those all things that I'm really good at? Sure, and you can be good at smoking to movies too! I'm happy to help! ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
Some say I looked like Harry Potter when I was a wee bit younger. I've got a halloween outfit, and old pictures with some bulky glasses are uncanny...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a random list. I watch too many movies, and then forget them really fast... And frankly there's tons of options for rotting our brains, and I like most of them :P

Movies: Magnolia, Fight Club, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Big Fish, Waking Life, Requiem for a Dream, Pulp Fiction, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Primer, Kill Bill, Donnie Darko, The Big Lebowski, Saved, Dune, Evangelion (despite the ending), harold and kumar go to white castle, anything Monty Python, The Constant Gardener, The Matrix, Waking Life, Inception

Books: I'm illiterate. har har, no, I wish I read more. I used to read all sorts of fantasy books, back before school and work gobbled me up. Maybe I can remember some authors. Terry Brooks (The Sword of Shannara etc.), Terry Goodkind (both Terry, funny) (Wizard's First Rule etc.), blah it's been too long.

A snapshot of tv shows: Futurama, South Park, Colbert Report, Nova, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Planet Earth. The random history or discovery/learning show. A little Becker, Scrubs back in the day. The old BBC Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer when I catch it. Wow that's old. The Office, uhm... The Big Bang Theory...

This deserves some newer entries: Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Bill Maher

Some other activities I enjoy: soccer, frisbee, anything around beaches, hiking (especially in thin mountain air -- natural, healthy intoxication!), whitewater rafting, card games -- like hearts, double hearts, spades, poker, board games -- like risk, chess, even monopoly from time to time. Like anything listed here? Let me know and let's do something!

My family has lots of old school games, like Acquire, Venture, Stocks and Bonds, Careers... but they're rather obscure...

I've also been known to play a digital game or forty two...
The six things I could never do without
- A morning shower. Except when I'm camping.
- A computer. Even when I'm camping!
- Colbert. Despite his religion.
- Clothing. I guess, silly society. ;)
- My brain-rotting TV (but its so big and cool hooked up to my computer.. I can Netflix old star treks in up scaled HD glory! Well, it's still grainy...)
- Ok, enough technology... YOU!! I kid, you're a sentient being like me, we aren't things... Are we?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making my game. That's hush-hush though, so...

Writing a book. What would it be about? Why, Life, the Universe and Everything of course! ;) Chapters would seamlessly unite the cold and grand story of science with the tragic failure of humanity to understand it. Then I put down the 420 (who am I kidding, never!)

(I am serious though, even now scientific progress is needlessly slowed by being prioritized at easily two orders of magnitude less than any other major social expense -- particularly war. We could cure death itself within our lifetimes if we just funded science properly.)

(ok maybe I do philosophize too much)
On a typical Friday night I am
Not out with you. The shame, the shame!
Usually something with 420/drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to be too shy/quiet. I'm working on it!
(isn't that usually the way it works anyway? big ideas, small voice)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
- you like any of the activities I listed. I'd love more activity partners!
- you'd like talking about any of the "weighty matters" -- I'd love to proselytize secular humanism!
- you're attracted to me and are open to sharing, or consider that another "weighty matter" you'd like to discuss.
