My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm here looking for fun, adventure, fortune, and glory. No, seriously.

True, I'm a little on the short side. But if that matters more to you than who I am or the contents of my head and heart then then I've got better things to do with my time than concern myself with your lack of appropriate priorities. You'd probably bore me to death in a week anyway.

If you're of the mistaken belief that education equals intelligence, I suggest you keep moving. I may not have the degrees or the crushing loan debt, (and how smart is that, really?) but I'll put my brain up against anyone you know or have ever met.

Pro and college sports are trivial, time and money wasting endeavors designed to enthrall the sheep and keep them from realizing their lives are actually devoid of any real meaning. Besides, if you don't risk death doing it, it's not really a sport, just a kid's game writ large.

I trust science over faith. I will go where the evidence leads, and I don't really care whether it's comfortable (for you) or not. The great thing about facts is that they are provably true whether you want to believe them or not.

I'm a veteran and inveterate government hater. I distrust the police as an institution and I've got absolutely zero patience for people who think that just because someone wears a uniform they're some kind of damn hero. It irritates me when people find out I'm a vet and they 'thank me' for my service. I would gladly trade all of the empty platitudes, the 'prayers', and the goddamned yellow ribbons for exactly what they are worth -- NOTHING. Donate to Wounded Warrior, gratitude fuck a combat vet with PTSD, maybe buy one a beer or three. But stop with the fake gratitude and child-like, weak kneed phony patriotism.

Pro-gun, with limitations. Pro-choice. Pro-gay marriage. Pro-legalization. Pro-live and let live. Pro-freedom and personal responsibility. Pro-education.

I think Doug Stanhope might be the Messiah.

Somebody really, really ought to put some chlorine in the gene pool. There's too much stupid in this country, and has been for about three decades now. The jungles of Belize look more and more appealing to me almost every day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it NOW. Creating the reality I want and enjoying it even when it's not perfect.

Avoiding the plastic people that seem to pop up everywhere in this valley.

Caring for people in real physical pain.

Building a new, better picture out of the complicated puzzle my life had been.

Rising from the ashes like the bird this shitty burg was named for.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing stuff. Figuring out the 'why' as much as the 'what', both in myself and in others. Listening. Keeping my perspective, even when things seem way out of hand. Making really loud, exciting noises with an electric guitar. Getting a joke in sideways when no one is expecting it. Listening to my gut, but tempering it with actual thought and not just an emotional response.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You tell me what you notice. It could be my confidence, in spite of my slightly awkward social skills. Or the beard... It's probably the beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For the last year or so it's been medical textbooks. The occasional philosophical treatise has crossed my bookshelf in the past as well. If it's not that, it's R.A. Heinlein, (Stranger in a Strange Land, Starship Troopers, Time enough for Love, etc. and always adding more), The Dark Tower series was pretty good, though I need to get caught up. TV wise, it's almost all documentaries. Unless it's Firefly, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Archer, and very few others. I am almost an authority on South Park, though my son is far more interested in it than I am these days. Musically, I'm game for almost anything with a guitar in it -- unless it's mainstream country. My internet radio mix channels run from classical guitar to black metal, and everything in-between.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Not necessarily in order)
My guitars
An amp to play them with
Air conditioning (seriously, why do human beings even live here?)
Electricity to run the amp and the A/C
Red Meat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Good metal and where to find it in the valley. Anyone have any hints?

Planning the next move in my continuous ascendance into legendary bad-assery. Coming soon to a college near you.

Quantum Physics. No, I don't really understand it. Anyone who says they do is lying, even the physicists who spend their whole lives studying it don't completely understand it. I do marvel at the implications, though, and wonder how I can best use the truths about reality those implications reveal.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Being atypical. 'Typical' bores the hell out of me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ummm, if I admitted something private here it would no longer be private. Get to know me and I'll be happy to share -- for people inside the inner circle, I am a completely open book. Well, almost.

You've managed to read this whole profile and realize that it's mostly tongue-in-cheek.

You've managed to read this whole profile and don't hate my guts without ever having met me.

You know what 'inveterate' means, without

You're interested in a guy that will give it to you straight, but actually understands how important tact is in meaningful communication.

You can have a conversation about something other than your religion, fashion, sports, or celebrities.

You can entertain a thought without embracing it.

You enjoy a dry, slightly wicked sense of humor.

You're bored.
