We live in Ashburn now! Fairfax was kind of expensive, though we hated to leave all of our friends, OKC-made and otherwise. :( Do you want to be friends with us? We're cool, I promise. If you're potentially down for hanging, toss a message to myself or BMinor.

Hey, read this, too! I'm married to BMinor, and she's a wonderful lady to whom I am exclusive. It's a textbook OKC success story, in fact. Don't let that stop you from messaging me! We are here for friends, and we love doing things in the so-called "real life" with other OKC users.

Rationality is the one value from which most of my others are derived, which is not always a good thing, but hey. Like most people, I'm no paragon of sanity and good decisions, but I try to keep level-headedness as my primary virtue. I'm an agnostic in the purest sense of the term; the idea is that you should question everything in your life, not just your religion. My biggest flaw is that I'm too analytical, in a soulless kind of way, at the wrong times.

I've got an INTP personality, and demonstrate most of the textbook INTP qualities. I am so INTP that it hurts. If you are an INTP or INTJ, I guarantee we'll get along, if only to further our secret dominion over the less analytical personalities. (What chumps, amirite?) I like people who are genuinely kind and understanding, people who challenge me, people who are smarter than me, and people who eschew traditional roles, genders, jobs, and conversations.

I really like learning. Anything. I'm pretty sure it's leaking out, and a good chunk of my earwax is actually congealed information. True facts! I think that Wikipedia is the eighth wonder of the world, and that for living in the age of the Internet there's an awful lot of ignorance around. Also, yes, I will probably agree with your stance on income inequality and the class war.

I can be straightforward in that INTP sort of way, which is a positive way of saying "tactless". I am hard to offend, and often make the mistake of thinking that others are the same way, which goes great with my habit of assuming things too quickly. Rest assured; that horrible burning rage you feel is completely unintentional. For all my flaws, I try really hard to be compassionate, friendly, and reliable. According to BMinor, I haven't fucked up too badly yet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
No more college! I work for Aol in Ashburn (yeah, that AOL) and quite like it so far. I lived in the Midwest all my life before moving to NoVA, and it's a bit...different. There's so many of you fuckers in such a small space! Hardly any of you are corn.

I'd like to end up working on games, whether electronic or physical. I had a great games industry internship in 2009, but I had a severe attack of The Real World and had to get an unrelated IT job. The current plan is to work for a few years, get a bunch of money and experience, and then fling myself at games development. Or maybe I'll become a hugely successful indie developer! (*audience laughtrack*) Ah, you guys are the best.

When I get the feeling that my career is a stagnant cesspool, I try to dabble in other stuff. I've been writing and singing since I was a larva, and would love to make a career out of either. I try to stay involved in the Rock Band Network (putting bands' music in Rock Band directly), both as an author and a playtester. I used to operate a small crafts business online, and may or may not try some more entrepreneurial things in the future.

One of my favorite things to do with BMinor is geocaching, which is effectively real-life treasure hunting. (Read: "Finds tupperware in the woods for fun.") Geocaching is super awesome! If you like the outdoors at all, we will totally geocache with you.

Domesticated animals are fuzzy and adorable (or scaly and adorable, or whatever) and I want to touch them. Touch ALL the animals.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music games (Rock Band, DDR, etc.)

Being rational / analytical (for better or worse)

Seeing both sides of a disagreement (also for better or worse)

Accepting people's flaws

Trying too hard

Not trying hard enough

Making lists
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My size. I'm tall (6'4").

I could put something thought-provoking here, but no, I'm 6'4". Anything else you notice is probably going to take a back seat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Terry Pratchett's Discworld series; the His Dark Materials series; Stranger in a Strange Land; the Song of Ice and Fire series; Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance; Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality; lots of random sci-fi and fantasy; even more completely random entries from other genres; Terry Pratchett, Robert Anton Wilson, Neil Gaiman

Food: I won't insult other users of OKC by trying to list foods I like here. I have the palate of a 7-year-old, much to BMinor's chagrin.

I always hate that there's not a "favorite games" part of this:

I will play any game you set in front of me, electronic or otherwise.

Let's do webcomics too:

Webcomics: Questionable Content, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, MS Paint Adventures, Girly, Templar, Arizona, Gunshow, xkcd, Kid Radd. There's tons of good webcomics out there that I've read incidentally (i.e. linked to specific strips on Reddit), but I haven't settled down and bookmarked yet. Please recommend them to me!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Knowledge

2) Games (video, card, board, tabletop, etc.)

3) The company of intelligent, genuine, and funny people

4) The Internet

5) BMinor

6) Music

7) The ability to question everything
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I don't know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
About 50/50 odds of:

1) Being lame at our apartment. This means Rock Band, Dance Central, trying to slowly work my way through my huge unplayed Steam library, dicking around on Reddit, or otherwise wasting time. I am the most interesting man in the world.

2) Hanging out with cool people JUST LIKE YOU! Oh em gee, we should, like, totally do stuff, for reals!

I am comfortable with my gender and sex, but would rather be female. I don't get depressing levels of dysphoria about it, but if I could choose...
