Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I retired from the toxic American way of life at age 30, moved to
Vermont with wife and child to escape the madness of NYC. The North
East Kingdom of Vermont with its like minded drop out agrarian
youth was a wonderful learning phase in my life. I now live on 9
acres in a log cabin in Kentucky, travel incessantly, and have a
daughter and grand daughter living in Australia. I am seriously
anti American government, love reading non fiction, value the sport
of tennis like a religion, and am an atheist.
My daughter has made a film and written a book, subject the two of
us, and both entitled the same; Bruce & Me. The film is shown
from time to time on the Sundance channel, and the book is
currently sold only in Australia. The book and film have to do with
my daughter's back and forth between Australia and the US between
the ages of 7 and 30, visiting her criminal father and then
returning to her transcendentally oriented mother, the latter
living on an
Aussie farm in the out back which served as a gathering center for
new age meditation folks.
I am world wise, cynical, and easy going
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Traveling to Cuba, Australia, Europe. Taking care of my Kentucky 9
acres and taking most of my inherited money out of banks, realizing
that cash is king. Trust no one in government or banking. I do put
some cash in Australian banks, regarding them as less of an evil as
the US type. Also the 6.3% on their term deposits beats hands down
the US interest rates.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tennis, playing classical piano. languages, (German and Spanish)
conversing with a minimum of persiflage and formulaic phrases;
serious conversations appeal to me.I find loathsome the type of
persiflage of that imbecile on TV, Glenn Beck. He, Sarah Palin,
Limbaugh and Hannity are the perfect barometers for judging the
intelligence quotient/political awareness of the American public,
ie, the Boobus Americanus.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A seriousness in my emotional responses. Notwithstanding this, a
wry sense of humor, being appealed to by Monty Python routines. The
alleged humor of a Jerry Seinfeld I find totally without value and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Kawasaki 800 bike both in Ky and in Australia, Cuban friends,
Greek salads, books, visiting Australia, CDs of Schubert's
impromptus for piano. Needless to say, I could do without any of
those if I had to. Going to Cuba illegally has been such a hassle
that I don't do that much anymore. Been there 36 times since '93.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Eros, the criminals in the US government, what their just
punishment should be and how wonderful were that to occur, the
absurdity and toxicity of organized religion. Becoming an atheist
was so easy. All I did was review all the ludicrous beliefs in
supernatural entities down thru the ages to understand that the
human mind is so vulnerable to such adult fairy tales. One can
easily recognize examples of the toxicity of organized religion,
examples being the malignant stupidity of the church of England in
their suppression of Darwin's monumental work on evolution, the
innumerable religious wars down thru history, and currently the
emotional plague on the part of the Boobus Americani in their
insistence on the notion of intelligent design worthy of being
taught in high school science classes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, traveling, playing tennis under lights, thinking. Maybe
looking at Orion or Scorpio constellations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was known to be a bank/insurance company scammer in my youth,
before the inheritances occurred. No need for that now. (I had to
support the family some how, having dropped out of the rat race)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can relate to my type of personality and values. I'm
sufficiently open minded to be able to listen respectively to most
held ideologies however bogus. I created the bio truthfully and
controversial to separate the wheat from the chaff amongst the
other Cupids, keeping the responses at a low number. The enemy
rating of almost all the members I've contacted is rarely lower
Keep in mind that those who write Never! re drug experiences seem
as absurd and close minded to me as do those ancient priests who
refused to look into Galileo's telescope which would have shown the
heliocentric nature of the solar system. Those who are the never!
writers should realize that they have become victims of the fear,
greed and ignorance of the anti drug cabal. Certain drugs can be
one's educator par excellance. This never! crowd would improve
their mind set markedly by reading some of the literature by the
pro drug authors such as Aldous
Huxley, Tim Leary, Alan Watts, Terrence McKenna and Baba Ram Dass.
