Remembering stuff from reading it years ago.
Formalizing arguments. Clear and sharp thinking.
Puns. Especially lame and bad ones.
Being an asshole. (A mild case of Gregory House)
And apparently, joking.
Films. Last time I checked, I had rated 563 films on IMDB (list is public). Add to that the films I did see but forgot to rate. Favorites are talking films with good dialogue such as: Conversations with other Women (2005), Interstate 60 (2002), 12 Angry Men (1957), Whatever Works (2009), Jeux d'enfants (2003), The Princess Bride (1987).
Music. In short, a lot of different stuff, but especially old rock music (think Pink Floyd and Rolling Stones) and modern electronic music (dubstep, tech house, minimal), and lots of instrumental music (because it is good for reading, lyrics interferes with my concentration). Lastfm profile.
As someone else wrote, it is of little importance whether one has similar tastes in film and music. Books, probably pretty important. Although I can live with people that read fiction. :P
Contemplating what to write about next, and read. I read very much, and pretty much only nonfiction.
I have three blogs, which I don't use that much anymore. In Danish, English, and Esperanto.
I run an academic-ish site about drug legalization legaliser.nu. I am a strong proponent of legalizing and regulating all drugs. The drug war is way more harmful than are the drugs, and much of the harm of the drugs is directly caused by the current prohibition policies. Think about what alcohol prohibition did for alcohol and society in the US. The same it does for other drugs and society in countries all over the world today.
I run an academic site about reforming the Danish orthography lyddansk.dk. Basically, the Danish spelling system is horrible and is badly in need of a reform. The number system is also fucked up. So my interests are definitely spelling reform and language reform.
I also have a bunch of smaller projects some ongoing, some completed, see the main site for details.
Some of my other interests. I have tried to group them a bit by relatedness.
Improving humans: transhumanism, eugenics of the non-forced kind/liberal. Especially embryo selection, which is the act of extracting a number of eggs from the female. Mating them in vitro with sperm from the desired male. Then separating the fertilized eggs, and letting them divide once or twice. Then freezing them and taking out one of the cells for genetic testing. Do this for a large number of cells (say, 100). Select the cells with the best genes (for health, intelligence, attractiveness), and implant it in the female. No government coercion is necessary for this because parents really do want healthy, smart, attractive children already. Indeed, that is the whole idea behind discriminating between potential mates...
Other linguistic stuff: constructed languages, Esperanto (obvious).
Understanding humans: evolutionary psychology, intelligence research/IQ research/psychometrics, cognitive epidemiology, personality research, human nature. Humans are animals exactly like the other animals, and they evolved as well to fit their environment. This environment has included other humans for a long time, so naturally humans have cooperation and hostility adaptions, and a bunch of adaptions related to the mating game. The obvious ones being women's relative preference for high status+rich males, and males relative preference for beautiful+young females.
Politics/improving society: meritocracy/political theory, nuclear energy, evidence-based policy, copyright policy, patent policy, justice policy(not the right term?), internet policy, sex trade/sex work (I'm pro-legalization) and in general public policy. Lots of other stuff. Overall I'm something of a socioliberal (use the market for efficiency, regulate to correct for market failures), meritocratic democrat (decisions should be made by intelligent, informed peers in some kind of democratic way, e.g. liquid democracy with a libertarian social policy bent (legalizing a lot of things currently illegal for various health or morality 'reasons').
"I don't understand why prostitution is illegal. Selling is legal. Fucking is legal. Why isn't selling fucking legal? You know, why should it be illegal to sell something that's perfectly legal to give away? I can't follow the logic on that one at all! Of all the things you can do, giving someone an orgasm is hardly the worst thing in the world. In the army they give you a medal for spraying napalm on people! In civilian life you go to jail for giving someone an orgasm! Maybe I'm not supposed to understand it..." (George Carlin, Napalm and Silly Putty (2001))
Philosophy stuff: logic, formal logic, modal logic, non-standard logic, philosophy of science, philosophy of physics. I haven't been too interested in this for some time, especially after reading and agreeing with Paul Graham about philosophy. While philosophy can be useful, armchair philosophy is generally useless and in excessive amounts even harmful to one's understanding of the world. One will not learn how the brain works if one sits around reading, say, phenomenology all day.
Somewhat recently got a renewed interest in the area, because of the recent interest in theory of mind, and the reasoning complexity behind such inferences. To study the complexity one needs to formalize the reasoning, which of course requires formal logic. :)
Various other science stuff: physics, biology, evolutionary biology (I started studying this because I wanted to know why the creationists were wrong), psychology, metascience/scientometrics. Specifically what makes a good scientific field. Paul Meehl said it well about social social, specifically social psychology.
"Perhaps the easiest way to convince yourself is by scanning the literature of soft psychology over the last 30 years and noticing what happens to theories. Most of them suffer the fate that General MacArthur ascribed to old generals—They never die, they just slowly fade away. In the developed sciences, theories tend either to become widely accepted and built into the larger edifice of well-tested human knowledge or else they suffer destruction in the face of recalcitrant facts and are abandoned, perhaps regretfully as a “nice try.” But in fields like personology and social psychology, this seems not to happen. There is a period of enthusiasm about a new theory, a period of attempted application to several fact domains, a period of disillusionment as the negative data come in, a growing bafflement about inconsistent and unreplicable empirical results, multiple resort to ad hoc excuses, and then finally people just sort of lose interest in the thing and pursue other endeavors."

Computer stuff: programming, python, data mining. I like to do data mining studies of stuff... Like studying the sex ratio of TED speakers (73% male), or the spammability of skills in DOTA2 and LOL (much more spammable in LOL).

polyamory is a plus. It will never work in a long-term sexual exclusive relationship (as in, I will cheat sooner or later). There are too many nice women for that to work. I like variety. :)
If you don't have a Myers-Briggs type in your profile. Personality psychology is cool, pseudoscience isn't.
Of course, if you think we would get along for non-dating purposes, feel free to write me. I can always use more interesting people to talk with! :)
