My self-summary
Nerd, muscles, dresses badly, not too bothered about material wealth, bit of a day dreamer, does not watch much TV, listens to lots of music.
Kind of sums it up.

Well it does not come close to summing it up. But given the media one has to craft the message for the prickly, sticky and ever misunderstood world of selling ones self online.

I come from a family of steel workers and coal miners. Was the first to graduate and now the first to get a post grad in my extended family. However I started off by bombing out of school then into the army, working as a post man and in factories before putting things into a different, hmmm bourgeois (questionable but it will do) pathway.

Have been in London about 8 years, dont really feel I fit in, most of my friends are a lot younger as in just turning 30 and tend to work in more minimum wage, zero hours contracts type work.

Been stoating around OKC for a couple of years now. Met some nice people, even some permanent friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to buy my own flat right now, which is taking way too much of my life and a pretty depressing in terms of physically watching prices rise month by month.

Went back to university a couple of years ago to get a postgrad qualification, now working my way up in the world of IT.
I’m really good at
Cylcing long distances is my weekend hobby. I have done up to 200 miles in one day, someone somewhere aught to be impressed by that.
I also have a pretty broad general knowledge.

The six things I could never do without
My bicycle.
A computer of some kind.
Books.
Toothbrush.
A map (maps are completely undervalued as sources of entertainment)
Laughing at myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I know enough to know I am not as clever as people think I think I am. That said, who is?

It ironic that most things people say are ironic are not ironic.

The observable universe is about 91 billion light years in diameter. It is terrifying to think we are all alone and the only intelligence in that horrific empty vastness.

It is even scarier to think that we are not alone.

Can we avert the 6th mass extinction?

What was going through the mind of the Easter Islander (Rapa Nui) who cut down the last tree?

How did I end up here and did I make bad choices or good ones? Have I made the best of the bad hand or the worst of a good one. Luckily so few can see my internal dialogue but what if everyone else was as crippled with self doubt, they just cant admit it. Or may be you are just over thinking, that kind of thing is something we all probably spent a lot of time thinking about but should not go into a box about what you spend time thinking about because in the modern world that is an overshare, you are supposed to be making yourself appear profound not honest..... or is honest attractive? The paradox of internet "tell us about yourself" do people really really want to know?
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering how everyone else affords a typical Friday night in London.
You should message me if
I can lick my eyebrows, this should be wildly tempting to someone.

Cant see likes so no point dishing them.
