My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Any personality that can be described in a nutshell belongs there. That said, here's a few snapshots.

I am patient and unrelenting as the tides, which might be the same thing as saying I'm in my last year of grad school.

I love plots. No, seriously. I have a collection.

I grew up in a crushingly conservative and small-minded little town out in the deep desert. I escaped to college, and haven't been back since.

I'm data-driven and empirical. I have strong opinions, but I like to think I change my mind pretty quickly when I'm convinced I'm wrong.

I've been pointed squarely at a career in science since about the third grade, but not just because the world is amazing and full of fun surprises and deep puzzles. I believe strongly in the power of human reason to do good.

Fairness is a big deal for me. I don't get angry very often, but watching one person exploit another usually does the trick.

When threatened by predators, I can inflate to three times my normal size.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm doing the academic thing -- I'm driven to find out how the world works, and I love being surrounded by interesting, quirky, intellectual people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I ask interesting questions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't own a television, and my reading tends to range pretty widely (though these days it's mostly nonfiction). Right now I'm reading How We Reason, The Spirit Level (a book with plots! about economic inequality!), and The Reactionary Mind.

I've been especially influenced by a few books. The ones that come to mind are Guns, Germs and Steel; Gödel Escher Bach; The Making of the Atomic Bomb; and Albion's Seed.

Dan Simmons, China Mieville, and Neal Stephenson usually don't disappoint me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...where everything in the universe came from, and how I'm going to find out.
...how the world got broken, and how it could be made (a little bit) better.
...whether a career in academia is a real contribution or a cop-out.
...how to meet women who are smart, sexy, and not busted on the inside.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you think you can hold my attention.

Note, also, that I am now spoken for. I'm always looking for interesting conversation and good company, but not, at this point, anything more.
