Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love playing games
of all sorts (video games
, board games
, card games
, whatever!). I also

catch anything), rock climbing

I love knowledge

I have a politically incorrect sense of humor. Though I've learned
to censor myself well, don't be afraid of offending me.
I'm passable on drums
and enjoy singing.
I built an autonomous robot using a Roomba for the chassis. Now 95%
of my ads on OKC are from iRobot.
I am a big nerd
all the best ways.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate Radiation Health Physics student at Oregon State
with a focus on Radioecology
. I'm working on a
radionuclide survey of the pelagic food web off our coast, which
means less free time but lots more Science
I've been getting some questions so I'll put this here: yes, I am
the Delvan of Amaragh Associates. I do some computer forensics work
when time allows, mostly related to torrent litigation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting along with good people from all walks of life. I enjoy
everything from the stupid, painful puns to horribly offensive
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't play most of the social games every seems to go for...I'm
direct, straightforward, blunt, and open in my communication with
other people the vast majority of the time. The downside is, I
usually assume other people are doing the same, so I'm terrible at
trying to read subtle signals.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some books I've read and enjoyed include The Long Dark Tea Time of
the Soul by Douglas Adams
(and of course the
Hitchiker's series), The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene
, The Prophet by Khalil
Gibran, Wicked by Gregory McGuire, and Spin by Robert Charles
Winston. A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore was quite enjoyable, I'll
probably try some of his other books soon. I also finally got
around to reading Watchmen. I was surprised just how well the movie
followed the book, but there were definitely some extra morsels in
there that I hope end up in deleted scenes for the DVD.
I enjoy movies
all sorts other than gory horror (just boring). I don't often have
the time to sit down and watch TV, these days I'm more likely
watching a Geek & Sundry episode on YouTube if anything. But as
far as actual TV goes, a few favorites are Mythbusters,
Survivorman, Reno 911!, and Family Guy.
: I enjoy a
broad range of music, but I tend towards the classics. I have no
idea who any of the up and coming artists are for the last few
years, and I'm pretty bad at remembering band names to begin with.
Here's a random selection of stuff on my playlist right now:
of the Conchords
, Pink Floyd
, The Beatles
, Tenacious D
, Frank Sinatra
, Miles Davis
, John Coltrane
, Damien Rice
, Led Zeppelin
, Howlin' Wolf
, God Lives Underwater
My favorite cuisines are good chinese
and good japanese
, especially sushi
. Also anything with garlic in
it, good hot wings. Yum!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
from arbitrary social boundaries, freedom to express myself.
Peace, peace of heart and peace of mind.
- What's the
point in going to work, or in having any free time afterwards, if
you don't have these?
- I enjoy a
lot of different music, though I'm finding my preferences are
rather outdated compared to my peers. I don't follow up and coming
band names, as I've found my more enjoyable music from the past
than on the radio.
takes a while before I joke much with someone, as I need to get a
feel for their taboo subjects.
Don't get me wrong, I love going out in the woods or even getting
together and agreeing to keep things low-tech and simple. It's nice
to get a peaceful break from all the input from so many different
devices, but I certainly wouldn't want to go long term without a
reliable computer and an internet connection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. My brain rarely shuts off. I often go off on strange
segues in conversation, and I have a tendency to over-explain
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days I drive down to Eugene most weekends. Nearly all of my
Corvallis friends graduated this term, so that'll still be the case
until I branch out to some new people here locally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't keep secrets about myself and I don't embarrass easily.
Literally any subject is open with me.

...you find me interesting. You need not be looking for a romantic
connection: If you think we'd have some activities in common, drop
me a line. I'd like to find a couple climbing buddies for Dixon,
and I'm in serious need of folks who enjoy board games or some
co-op video games.
