My self-summary
I'm kind of nerdy. I've never really understood how to deal with women. Here's an example. I saw a woman at work recently. I grabbed the nearest fire extinguisher, aimed at the base of the woman, and swept side to side. My supervisor saw this and said, "Doesn't, you idiot! That's a not a fire, it's a woman!" I felt super dumb. She grabbed the extinguisher and popped me in the face with it.

All my encounters with women end the same way, with me getting my face ruined. By fists, feet, drinks, mace, tazers, weapons of opportunity, car doors, and a boomerang once in Australia. I flirted with misogyny, but it punched me in the face too. I even tried men, but they just made love to my face, and that hardly seemed better.

So that's me. Female fist magnet. But I know that somewhere out there is the fist for me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work a million hours a day with a hardhat and giant torque wrenches. I'm also in the damn Marines. I drive a yellow Beetle to balance out the manly stuff. Most of my time is devoted to working and getting my face smashed in. For the rest, I do a lot of reading, in the hope of learning all of science. And I'm trying to cross over to the Navy because they have a free nuclear engineering school.

I want to write two books. One fiction and the other non-. I don't say I'm writing them, because I'm not writing fast enough to justify the present tense. At this rate, they'll get done before I die of natural causes. That's my minimum goal.
I’m really good at
Awkward silence.
The first things people usually notice about me
. . .
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Jumper (not the awful movie), A Deepness in the Sky, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, The Free Lunch

Movies: Aliens and Terminator 2. If you noticed the James Cameron trend, it ends there, let me assure you.

Shows: House and Firefly.

Music: My taste in music is beyond comprehension, but here are some brands I like: Rammstein, Electric Six, MSI, Regina Spektor, Eisbrecher, Disturbed, System of a Down, Apocalyptica, Metallica, Adele, Mark M.

Food: I eat noodles and cans of beans, for very extensive and boring scientific reasons. But you're probably concerned with whether I can cook tasty meals. That's why this question is really on here. The answer is yes.
The six things I could never do without
Reading material. I can't think of five more. I could pad the list with jokes like "air", but that's been done. I really don't need a lot of stuff.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to think of things others haven't thought of before, because the alternative seems like a waste. So I think about epistemology. But others have thought of that too, so I try to spice it up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeing what's out there, getting curb stomped.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My face has conducted more electricity than your local power substation.
You should message me if
