Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My component parts were all forged in the hearts of enormous
nuclear furnaces that violently died eons ago in cataclysmic
explosions. That about sums up my existence.
I sometimes wish this "My Details" section --------->
gave us a little more freedom. For instance if we had the option to
put "Has kids but doesn't want any," or "Drinks desperately but it
doesn't matter," wouldn't that be just splendid?
Looking for those prone to spontaneous adventure and always willing
to try new things. Found a new beer bar? Need a plus-one for the
marriage ceremony of your lunatic aunt’s dog and cat? ...Hit me
Yes, I play guitar. I don’t play it to pick up chicks. I don’t play
it to gather around a campfire and play everyone’s favorite song to
sing along with. I play it for myself. I almost exclusively write
and record original songs: catchy tunes in non-standard time
signatures with the ultimate goal of creativity and uniqueness. If
you play an instrument, we can send each other messages about
I play with words, I make stupid jokes, I solve problems, I build
things, I fix things, I learn for the sake of learning, and if
you’re open-minded, I will get along with you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being a senior badass hacker engineer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm real good at grammer and spelling.
I have recently discovered that I'm really good at racquetball and
that it may just be the best sport ever. I am always looking for
I have a killer sense of direction. I'll never get lost.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Dashing good looks, statuesque figure, eyes as deep and wild as the
ocean itself. Everyone tells me this. Everyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food is fantastic. You would be hard pressed to find a food I won't
eat. I tend to prefer (extremely) spicy or savory over sweet.
Favorite cuisines are sushi, Korean bbq, sichuan, Mexican, Indian,
and Thai. Worst food ever is the potato; it's nothing but the
absence of flavor, an anomalous void of taste.
I prefer music that exhibits skillful instrumentation and
composition; this usually falls under the genres of progressive
rock, experimental, classical, or jazz. And electronica beep
If a movie focuses more on special effects than acting/plot,
chances are I'll mercilessly mock it. This explains why the old
Star Wars films are so good and the new ones are so terrible. My
favorite movie is The Sting. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
is up there too. I generally dislike horror movies but 28 Days
Later was brilliant.
I am a fan of most Adult Swim shows. Tim and Eric awesome show
great job and Tom Goes to the Mayor are the pinnacle of humor and
tickle my absurdist sensibilities in all the right ways. I enjoy
Arrested Development, HIMYM, the wire, the office, futurama, flight
of the conchords, firefly, BSG, Venture Bros, Xavier, Dr Who,
Walking Dead, Archer, and the League. Watched Game of Thrones and
now I'm reading through the book series cause I'm not gonna wait
until next season to find out what happens. :P Really the best show
ever is Cosmos.
There was a period in my life when all I had time to read were
scientific papers. Now I'm back to my usual cycle of: pick up a new
book, read it enthusiastically for about a week, then slowly finish
it off over the next decade. The books I am currently creeping
through are Infinite Jest, Game of Thrones books (duh), Godel
Escher Bach (mind-blowing, but a million pages long), Demon-Haunted
World (Sagan is a hero of mine), God Delusion (Dawkins too), and
Romance of the Three Kingdoms (translated to English).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the internet - it makes doing research a million times
easier. It also makes NOT doing research a million times
burritos - especially the chipotle kind, the wet kind, or
the 3am kind, preferably smothered in copious amounts of:
hot sauce - I have a small collection going. Most recent
addition is a wicked ghost pepper sauce. As much as I'd like to say
I could never do without flavorful food, we all know encountering
bland food is inevitable. Hot sauce makes that bland food
palatable, and thus I could never do without it. That said, not
even hot sauce can fix a potato.
craft beer/wine/single malt scotch - After all, alcohol
should be enjoyed for its flavor. I grouped these together because
I noticed my list is becoming very food/drink oriented (did I call
hot sauce a drink? you decide).
guitar - it's a huge stress reliever and awesome fun to
an inquisitive mind - because beer and burritos alone
didn't get me through grad school (but they did help).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to say to you that will distinguish me from the numerous other
weirdos that are probably filling your inbox.
Research, philosophy, current events, consciousness, the cosmos,
morality, mortality, technology.
If you could travel close enough to the speed of light, you could
circumnavigate the universe within a human lifetime
(thanks to relativity)! Of course by the time you got back to the
solar system, the sun will have been long dead and the earth would
no longer exist (damn you, relativity!).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
bored. Let's find something to do, damnit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love to watch large airplanes land. It's satisfying and relaxing.
