Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First of all, can someone tell me why one of my pictures refuses to
crop properly and cuts my head off? Technology is hard.
I'm Max. I work at Amazon. Not the cool, corporate part where you
get free Kindles and use drones to do your maniacal bidding (I
assume), but the actual packing the stuff you buy and sending it to
you part. If you've bought a dildo in the past six months, I
probably packed it for you. And laughed.
In my non-work time, I'm basically obsessed with learning things,
including but not limited to: modernist literature, cosmological
physics, music of various genres (currently contemporary classical
and r&b), chess strategy, biohacking, and discrete (mostly
"visual") maths. I enjoy learning about pretty much
When I'm not spending hours reading or poring over Wikipedia pages,
I'm either writing a novel, playing video games, or getting
schwasted with friends. I'm currently trying to get schwasted less.
Or more. I haven't decided yet.
I also thoroughly enjoy sleeping. I also think sleep is a terrible
waste of time. This is a contradiction that I have yet to resolve.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Drinking kombucha and feeling pretty hipster about it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, I hope. Dear Lord.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm totally awkward. Like, middle-school chess club math nerd
awkward. Probably because that was me in middle school.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I used to make lists. Now I just make statements.
Lightness of Being
Mothertongue (2007)—Nico Muhly
But seriously, I do have pretty eclectic music tastes. Ask me for a
more complete list.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I assume this prompt isn't to be taken literally, as  the
obvious ones are pretty obvious, and  I recognize that I could
actually survive with very little (I just wouldn't enjoy it). So
here are the less obvious:
1. Technology (phone, wifi, etc.)
4. A cultural continuity, a conversational dialogue expressible
through art and language (including social media)
5. Physical work/expression of some sort, such as sex
6. Hygiene. I'm first-world spoiled.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Big Bang theory and the validity of Roger Penrose's conformal
Also: When is Joanna Newsom going to release another album?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading or writing. Being a nerd.
(I do have a social life, mind you, but that's usually on
Wednesdays and Thursdays.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be super into Ayn Rand as a kid. Like, obsessed almost.
Turns out, empathy is hard, and I was probably emotionally stunted
as a child.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can teach this half-Korean kid how to enjoy spicy kimchi so I
don't bring dishonor to my family. For real. It's gross.
Note: I answered most of the match questions on here like six years
ago. If you legit care if the algorithm likes us, tell me and I'll
just go through our shared match questions or whatever. Not
multiple-choice-testing again. I'm lazy.
