I want to connect emotionally, intellectually and physically (not
necessarily in that order). My hobbies are various if you must
know, spanning mechanical, communicative, and outdoor-oriented
ones. Bicycling, navigating, flying, percussion, museum hopping,
and good logical or evidenced arguments are some of my recurring
afflictions. I can be passionate about statistics too (long live
geekland!). I am a music addict - classical, jazz, latin, and
choral, and then some more. rumba is a plus. A worldly outlook is a
non-negotiable must. The US is not the world, just a part thereof.
Is the empire declining? I have discovered the secret of life. It
is rather simple and ubiquitous so I don't even have to assert it
(fun to look for it jointly). When I grow up I would like to be a
writer, and not just of walls....
What I’m doing with my life
I watch infomercials late at night. I try to live crazily. And
looking intently to that which seems familiar because it is not.
Wondering what happens to the negated moments with people you
appreciate. Riding my bike, and moving. Connecting to my childhood
dreams. Finding interesting ideas.
I’m really good at
Solving tomorrow's world problems, tomorrow if possible. I can
worry as good as the best. Eating. Stimulating my imagination.
Remembering old arguments while I read related accounts in the
liberal eastern media (NYT). Routines that make time for other
routines. Analysis. Paralysis. Finding rhythm in just about any
The first things people usually notice about me
My intelligence masquerading as a normal dude. Or my eyes. They
also notice the intense curiosity.

La Fiesta del Chivo
The Black Swan
Michael Keegan's book on Military History
Cien Años de Soledad
Physics for PResidents

Come, nene, come....
The six things I could never do without
6. Good friends!
5. Great music.
3. Imbibing fluids.
2. The sun.
1. A gorgeous and intelligent woman.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is quantum entanglement and its implications for my next life
adventure. How to apply statistics to optimize my decision making.
Where did entropy come from? How come self-help books dont? Can
someone explain to me how come some people answer that the
suffering of starving children concerns them less than the welfare
of animals?!? What am I missing here? Something is not right with
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends or sailing or enroute to some special
activity, perhaps even looking for Geritol (organic, of course).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I did. I wasn't abducted by aliens ever, I swear.
You should message me if
You would like to know more or if you need a sailing partner right
now or someone to carry your bags for an extended trip to los
Andes. Your pic looks like you, not a decades old FBI-lab
extrapolation (though time travel is not totally bad). Risqué
activity is strangely alluring to certain adrenoidally sensitive
parts of your central nervous system....
I am also looking for a few good extra friends (men or women)
