I am a citizen of the world. I seek to understand (people, ideas, stories, nonsense, et al) and participate, preferrably in that order. You'll no doubt agree that the best tool to achieve this is an OKCupid profile, so here I am. Hopefully there are some interesting people to get to know here.
I'm fond of doing nontrivial things on the spur of the moment, such as cycling to a mountain early on a weekend morning and enjoying the view from the top when nobody else is around. Or taking a day trip out of town to map roads and hiking paths for OpenStreetMap. Or going out for a run with no planned route or duration. Or whatever silly and/or arduous activity a friend suggests, if it's fun or meaningful.
I'm pretty easy-going, optimistic, and relaxed. It's pretty much impossible to get me angry, upset, or offended. If you murder a friend of mine or commit genocide or something, I might make an exception. Maybe.
Some traits I value in people: being willing to joke about anything, curiosity, intellectualism, open-mindedness, perseverance, romance, idealism, kindness, not-too-stuck-up-to-joke-about-most-anything-ness, always-ready-to-get-up-and-go-do-(even-nontrivial)-stuff-ness. Feel free to suggest better adjectives.
I read that OKTrends blog post which says that the answers to the following three questions are the best indicators of compatibility. Here are my answers:
‣ Do you like horror movies?
I like the ones where the horror is secondary to a good plot or narrative. The first thing that comes to mind is movies like Cube. They're interesting puzzles. The second is zombie movies, which I like more for the whole apocalyptic-changes-in-the-way-society-works aspect (and occasional absurd humour) than the sheer survival horror aspect. The Alien movies were pretty good too.
‣ Have you ever traveled around another country alone?
Yes, but not very extensively, unfortunately.
‣ Wouldn't it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?
For a little while, yeah, it could be. Good company would be crucial, though.
