I work in the bowels of a large academic research library. I am
increasingly moving into the world of atheist activism. Eventually
I hope we can improve the quality of public policy and personal
self-actualization by marginalizing non-rational beliefs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bending simple code to my aims. Leveraging tedium. Obsessing over
parmesan ice cream.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I tend to avoid having favorites, but I'll do what I can. Usually
my feelings about things sufficiently interesting to engage me are
too multidimensional for single-axis rankings.

The short works of Fritz Leiber are also really good, as I've been
rediscovering of late. Space-Time for Springers!! All hail the

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer. My cat. Some subset of humanity that's non-evil.
Books. Liberals. Poultry.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably out with friends, maybe getting an outing together. I
could be catching up with Netflix if nothing else is up.
Sometimes, however, my cat sends me on secret missions. I can't
