My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
We both know I will never be what you think or say you are looking for. Instead, please take a moment to see if this man is some you would enjoy having as a friend.

I was born in St.Paul MN, and have called Madison WI, home. I am a contractor, I install networking and test it. I spent most of last summer flying to many huge tourist spots, but this summer I spent home in Madison. I am also an experienced computer technician, and Electrical Engineer in training. Update: I hoped to return to school, but with two weeks to go I was purchased by a company, and so I now develop for a fortune 500 in St Louis. I am now looking to get know a few people here in the area, because I left behind all my friends in Wisconsin.

Note: If you see me in your visitors list, that's not an accident. I have paid for the extras package. Incognito is active, and I only leave footprints when I choose too. What this means to you is entirely your own choice. Hello, I am Raymond, and yes you can google me, I have nothing to hide.


I am a geek, but not a nerd. I am a square, and a strait edge. I don't drink or smoke, and I cannot stand the stink of weed, to me it's like burnt tires and crushed stink bugs.

I am looking for good conversation, kindred spirits, people who want to chat or hang out, people who share interests in technology, science, politics, games, ect. It would also be awesome to meet a few people to get together for hiking, bowling, mini golf, tennis, video games, etc versus simply sitting around talking.

I tend to talk a lot and if I am not paying attention to this, it can get out of hand. Those who are not experienced in -pushing in (bantering) or have little to no patience for talkers need not apply, been down this road. Best served are those who can keep up verbally, and we can share rapid fire. Maybe it's a learned skill, but it gets out far more info than waiting turns like dogs holding a biscuits on their noses. Have something to say, just say it! Like the difference between Old school 10/100 non duplex Ethernet, and 100/1000 Full Duplex. I am Full Duplex, and waiting for the other side to stop sending is forever, so i dont wait and neither should you.

I win games with my mind, not my fists.
- I have been able to make some pretty big tough guys (who were most certainly able to hurt me) drop to their knees, without a single fist thrown.

I always speak the truth, about what I think, how I feel, and what I saw, even when egos and emotions are on the line. Many people look at this like some kind of gift, a thing that is an ideal. But when faced with living like that, they eventually freak out. I think most people actually hate honestly and truth even though they all ask for it, and its quite pathetic really.

I am a pessimist. But I manage my stress better than most. My heart rate is text book, and my blood pressure too. Have made more than a few women jealous of my hair (no joke), and a health nuts grumbled about my good blood pressure, good health, low heart rate. But it's hardly magic. I just don't let things eat me alive like some people do, and yet I also do not lead my life oblivious to reality like some bubbly air head.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
if you play minecraft, plug into your multiplayer and say hello. Rules are simple. The server is vanilla. Language is Pg13. Server is broken into several worlds to fit your interests. Have fun. I am a guest too, not the owner. Keep in mind I am casual, so not always on.

Every day learning new things. Asking questions. Helping others with their questions. Learning new ways to do things. Finding or creating new tools so that I may do a higher quality job. My employers loath me for going out and buying higher quality tools than they are usually willing to invest in.

I study so that I can do more than I can do now. So that I can be a better inventor, and a better technician, a better Engineer! So that I can help others like myself create what they see in their minds eye too. I embrace that feeling within to make stuff work and make new stuff. I embrace others desire to make the stuff they see in their minds work too!

Working on designs for new tools, that technicians use. Redesigning stuff the original creators were two absent minded to get right the first time. Looking for ways to create real upgrades to my engine and other devices, that aren't just simple patches to fix stupid mistakes. Designing my own personal air craft and a few unique parts. Looking at ways to redesign traditional transmissions to make more efficient use of the engine you already have. Working on designs for vehicle launch systems for space travel, and more efficient engines for our aircraft. I also take great interest in Mechanical and Biological engineering.
-I look forward to the day when we are able to code our own virus to repair damaged DNA, cure diseases and eventually help us all to evolve to the next level. No this isn't fiction, they have already cured Leukemia.

I make no secret of having a strong desire to fly. I would like very much to very soon construct an air craft of my own design. -I find it annoying that most, are so heads screwed on backwards that the idea of a man building an aircraft instantly makes him seem insane. We are so brain washed into thinking it's so difficult that no one dreams it themselves, every one simply looks down on others who pursue it. The reality is, nearly everything a man needs to fly is already on his computer or smart phone, and the hardware is easily acquired at Menard's, Home Depot, or eBay... silly superstitious humans! The only other thing preventing us from taking to the air is the FAA who are more like the Men in Black, if you dare to try to fly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
• Invention:
Some people use a hair pin to pick a lock. I use hoop earnings to test electronics. I design tools to fit difficult jobs, and find the flaws in time tested designs that have been overlooked by their engineers. This one is hard to explain in simple terms unless you share the interest in engineering or invention too.

• Not getting sick:
I think it's been maybe 5 years since the last time I was really sick. It feels strange to think that it has been so many years since I had the flu, or a real cold. Not that I can afford to be sick... And no I am not bullshitting. Really the only thing I do different than any one else is take time to make sure my hands are washed properly, and not just rinsed and casually wiped like so many disgusting slobs practice.
-09/15/13 my first head cold in a very long time. I have not missed the pains, sore joints, and sore everything, never mind the intense allergy feeling of having just stuck my face into cat...

• My hands:
Assembling, Fixing, Disassembling, Creating, cooking, sewing, ironing, washing, etc. Clean hands keep me healthy. Strong hands make me money. Fast hands make my employer happy. Sadly strange pains are creeping in, maybe its age...

• Talking:
I will never complain you talk to much. To me there is not much more important than good communication. It solves problems, prevents problems, shares knowledge, and in general insures the survival of friendships and couples. People who talk are successful. People who don't talk, sit alone in empty key less towers of their own design.

• Survival:
People think they know what it means to survive, but do they really? Could people survive as well as they think. Could they use the same stuff for more than a year? I do, I can save better than any one you know because I am so good at survival. When the end comes, I don't think I'll outlive every one, I know it. -However, if you think I own nothing but garbage, it shows just how little you know. As before making assumptions.

• Cooking:
When you have a nonstandard situation how do you cook? Depend on a Microwave? -Don't make me sick. I can bake goods, fry, roast, and every good thing, without a stove, without an oven and yes, without a Microwave. When you have to survive with minimal cash, you learn new ways to do old things, or you die, it's that simple. Those who have been where I have, and lived to tell are fit to be the kings of the world. In terms of what I have learned to do without a microwave, stove, oven, or campfire!! I shall lead armies!! lol
-But don't get me wrong, I don't think I am nearly creative enough to be a cook on Iron Chef.

• Hidden Talent:
Causing visitors to convulse before they have even clicked on my profile. If you dont convulse then you are lucky and we should talk. Also, I have Liked You and you like me, I will probably try to say hello. If you ignore that, I will unlike you. In fact I wonder why any one would keep me flagged as liked, if they wont even reply to a message. If I stink, then stop liking me, it's not going to offend me. It's more offensive to be ignored.

I am complimented on my patience, my kindness, desire to help, very real work ethic, wanting to work, and that I care when no one needs to.

People ask, how are you single? Women twice my age ask why I have no one on my arm. I think I simply do not extrude that Greek god charm and charisma. Though I feel I am too old to really care what people think any more, and truth be told I really just want good friends to talk to and do things with, far more than I want a physical partner.

honestly I don't read nearly as many books as I should, as it seems every one else has time for so many books. I do not much more than read all day, just not in books or fiction. I read all day as it is, nothing but reading. Face first in the computer all day. People who think that you have to spend your day reading only from a book in order to for it to count are simply snobs. I am sorry I do not have time for audio books and spend most of my free time reading something even if it is not a story book.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
water, air, sun, pencils, screw driver, magnet

thunderstorms, snow, ice, warm sunny days, flowering trees in the spring, birds

computer, 8GB, 2.5Ghz Quad Core, Canvas 8, Multisim 10, Open Office
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
They we have discovered proof of aliens. That they came raining down from a passing comet. Micro Organisms from another place, not Earth. So what now? How long will it take us to come to terms with what we have learned? So far it seem most of the world is still in denial. They have determined to ignore the finding and proceed as if they had never been observed.

Constantly thinking about inventions and electronics. Things to build, things to modify. How to do this how to do that.

Trying to figure out how to get off the ground. No joke, how to get a small air craft or to build one. There are thousands of small personal air craft, most private made and a few hundred commercially produced, the USA is a really big country with very few small aircraft. I'd like to change that with one of my own.

Working over plans and ideas for software should I ever manage to get some one willing to write it for me. I have many programs I would like written and even a few hardware controllers. Maybe even someday an air craft systems controller and interface.

I think about how in school, people put labels on introverts, they even feared them. Now people have begun to admit that Introverts, are actually something greater. But the masses always fear things that are different and what they don't understand or cannot control. I cannot count the things I was told I was insane for doing or thinking and a few years later, its normal and every one seems to have forgotten they called me insane... sigh. For what it's all worth I might as well have been born a witch in the Dark Ages, though it be true I have never been stoned or burned at the cross.

Why in general when people that say they are "open minded," they are most often are NOT. And why when they say they are looking for open minded friends, it's usually code for having an STD, their position on smoking weed, or they are transgender. Really, just come out and say what you mean. When I talk about being open minded I mean, can you handle different things without being scared or offended. However when I ask the question, every one says YES, they runs away crying they lied.

Those of you with children, you really need to be putting them first. No one says you cannot look for love. But if your love interests cost you time with your children, or worse, harm them, your kids will never forgive you. Your children, love them or not are here for life. If you can't see a way to put your kids no. 1 in your life then, you are probably unfit to have any at all. No this is not negotiable or forgivable. You have kids, be there for them, it's your job and yours alone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working to pay the bills. I wish I were comfortably wealthy, but I am not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Enjoy the stories. It's weird stuff even to me.
When I dream it's very often of magic or flying with the rare future events things. Those dreams are often long and vivid. I wish, I could fly like I can in my dreams. I really do. Just me exploring, everything my legs were not enough for! The dreams happened many times over the years each one like training in a classroom, until at least I had complete control.

For no apparent reason my dream training has taken on a new direction. I am developing telekinesis. It even hurts a little trying to force the thing to rise. Can't remember if it was a chess piece or a salt shaker but making something levitate is far harder than you might think! It felt like some one pushing it back down as hard as I was trying to lift it up.
Haven't had any future visions in a while. Least that I know of. Trouble with them, is I don't really remember them until they happen... So much for seeing the future. Really.

I have talked with my mother and she too says she has had similar dreams starting when she was about 18 or so. But from what I gather mine have gone farther. Others have also admitted to having premonition type dreams. Most refer to it as a dejavu thing but I am not sure that description really fits the events.

Had a dream about strange circles in the sky and when I stopped to look and watch, a tornado came down, but it wasn't a tornado, because the swirl of clouds broke open a massive asteroid was falling from the sky. I tried to get a picture of it and I yelled at my mother to drive the car away as fast as possible and then park behind some stone buildings. I woke to the phone ringing.

Separately I have dreampt that I had died no less than 5 times, and every time I died, I was alone. No one by my side, no one cared, to the world -I was already dead. I felt a deep sorrow, and I began to cry. I woke up this way, tears on my face.

I have also dreampt of my mother having died to and in those cases also woke up crying.

I dreampt that I had driven from St.Paul to Madison a couple time and wondered how I had forgotten this, even though I was sure it had never happened. Of course, it was a dream. But a memory of a stop at a gas station I was nearly stranded at... I know it happened but I no longer remember where I was coming from. Interesting that dreams are now bringing up real memories.
- Of course reading this now I have no idea what I was talking about when I wrote this. I have absolutely no memory of this posting.
