My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There are some who call me...Jim?

I have a very unique sense of humor that ranges between sarcasm and absurdity. I keep a clown nose in my desk drawer at work and have been known to use it to defuse contentious situations. In short, I take things seriously--just not very often.

I can be a very good listener and I've been told I give very good advice. If you can make me laugh most likely we'll become friends (as long as you're willing). I'm also a history/useless fact buff, but I try not bore my friends with historical anecdotes. In the "real world" I have been directly involved in every single foreign policy crisis the United States has faced since 9/11 and it's been a very interesting an humbling adventure. I certainly haven't saved the world, but I keep trying to.

My favorite type of person is someone who is curious about the world around them. I believe that the difference between just being alive and actually participating in life is simply a function of wonder. What I mean by that is if you can muster the effort to ask the question, "why" about even the mundane things around you, it's likely that you'll be fun to talk to.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Creating interesting exploratory adventures for myself and others out west through some of the most rugged and beautiful country I have yet seen; inventing things; repairing antiques that didn't work and making them better; crafting furniture out on my balcony and trying to figure out how to create things without a full workshop. I've worked in foreign policy for over 13 years and I don't think I'll will be leaving public service anytime soon. I'm having a good day if I've done something to anger a dictator somewhere. One of Robert Mugabe's ministers called me a hamburger-eating imperialist.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things that are broken. Understanding people and their motivations, and mastering new technologies. Finding adventures...I can generally find a fork in the road and by luck pick the road not taken.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I look young. I usually get carded and on a few occasions have been accused of having a fake ID because the DOB doesn't seem right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of non-fiction, especially science and medical literature. I am currently reading the history of Encephalitis Lethargica and learning how Parkinson's Disease changes people's perception of time and space. I also just finished The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. I also blew through the Game of Thrones books and some other fiction. I loved True Detective and Boardwalk Empire.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, water, food, shelter, dry socks, my ipod (I have an iphone, but don't use it for music; I just heard that ipods will no longer be produced. Until they come up with a better battery for the iphone I think this is a huge mistake).

Everything else is pretty negotiable. As a kid I did a lot of long term camping and trekking so I've learned to do without a lot of things. When I was in 8th grade I walked 50 miles in 19 hours wearing duck boots. I didn't get an award for this, just a patch...and blisters...oh the horrible horrible blisters.

The only human-made product that I cannot seem to live without is chapstick.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How am I so lucky to be alive. When I was in fourth grade I survived a bus accident where the bus accidentally punched through a house. In 2008 my car was crushed by a falling tree while I was driving to Alexandria and once again I walked away.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If it's been a tame week at work, I'm going to bed a little earlier and hoping for a sunny day and an adventurous weekend. If it's been a crisis week I'm probably on my couch clearing my DVR out or better yet training my robotic vacuum cleaner to do tricks. So far I have only taught it to vacuum.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Don't tell anyone, but I'm the guy who knocked over a bunch of those head statues on Easter Island. Also Stonehenge used to look a lot more put together before I visited. Seriously, if you don't want a mess on your hands you shouldn't line things up like dominoes.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a random sense of humor and like to be silly. You are intellectually curious. You like to explore the world around you.
