My self-summary
Unlike evidently everyone else on this website, I'm incredibly simple and can be easily summarized in a tiny box. Challenge--wait for it--accepted.

I'm a strange combination of Oscar Progresso, Mad Jack Churchill, Malcolm Reynolds, Davan MacIntire, and Joseph Stilwell. See? Simple. Don't get it? That's ok. Neither do I.

Wait, that's too vague for you? Damn you're needy. Ok, let's try this again. I'm:

A study in contradictions: very intelligent, yet often makes stupid choices. Firmly principled, but refuses to take life seriously. Honest to the point of being rudely blunt, but bends over backwards to be kind. Whimsical and eccentric, with a dark sense of humor. Yes, there is a line, and it’s more fun to dance on the other side of it. Chivalrous—holds doors and tips hats—yet sometimes an asshole. Not proud of it, but there it is. Passionate and calmly observant. Idealistic and exceptionally cynical. Holds a Bachelor of Science, majoring in International History. A soldier and an artist and a scientist and a philosopher and a writer and a huge nerd, all wrapped in one.

Dances. Sings, though not particularly well. Cooks. Practices martial arts. Meditates. Does community service. Firmly believes animals and small children are usually better people than most grown-ups. Studies history and economics and psychology and geology and everything else, too. Reads, writes, and enjoys talking. Watches TED Talks. Listens to the Great Courses. Speaks in various accents as the mood strikes. Plays the tinwhistle (well), French horn (very well), and the guitar (not so well…). Sometimes wears a kilt. Sometimes wears a top hat. Because. Collects quotes and funny pictures.

Abides.

3 adjectives: esoteric, anachronistic, incorrigible.

ENTP, if you must know. Though I usually score about 50% on the E/I scale.

See, I told you so. Simple. Grok?
What I’m doing with my life
Adventuring.

I'm a lieutenant in the army. As of April 2014, stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. Just moved here from the Pacific Northwest (yes, I am a beer snob). I owe the army another 5 years to pay for my education, unless I get kicked out for insubordination, which is fairly likely. (I have a problem with authority.) Then who knows? I'll be starting a Master's of Science program in Economics this autumn, so maybe I'll work on a Ph.D. after getting out of the Army. Maybe teach high school for a bit. I'm currently working on a couple novels. Wandering the Earth aimlessly strikes me as a damn fine way to spend my life.

(.....you can't take the sky from me.)
I’m really good at
Writing. Martial Arts, historical debates, philosophical debates, conversation, shooting guns, eating cookies, dancing, lifting heavy things and putting them back down. Not so good at running distances quickly or swimming. And I really like singing, despite not being particularly good.
The first things people usually notice about me
that I'm on fire. Well, that's when I'm on fire. Which happens more often than one might think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to have a series of long lists here, but I got bored with that, so now you just get the absolute top handful in each category.

Books: Memoir from Antproof Case (Mark Helprin). The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress (Robert A. Heinlein). The Name of the Wind (Patrick Rothfuss). Reaper Man (Terry Pratchett). The Left Hand of Darkness (Ursula K. La Guin). The Hobbit (JRR Tolkein). Anything by Feynman. Anything by Gaiman.

Movies: Secondhand Lions. Children of Men. Stardust. A Knight's Tale. Way of the Gun. The Big Lebowski.

TV Shows: Firefly. House of Cards. Doctor Who. Californication. Sons of Anarchy.

Music: Tom Waits. Lana Del Rey. Warren Zevon. Chris Knight. Dropkick Murphys. Dan le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip.

Food: Thai. Indian. My mom's chicken lasagna. Pizza. Steak.
The six things I could never do without
Sarcasm, laughter, intellectual stimulation, music, books, and Red Bull.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
pandas (and how my former roommate kinda looks like one). Unusual hair colors. Medieval Ireland. International diplomacy. Philosophy. How nifty my phone is. Mathematics. What my next tattoo will be. Hats. Fantasy and science fiction. How much I read on a nightly basis. How much hipsters annoy me. Grammar conventions, and amusing ways to defy them. xkcd. The pale blue dot. How amusing it is that Thomas Crapper invented a device called a ballcock. And everything else, too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Adventuring with friends. Or playing poker.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was the nerdiest kid at band camp. Seriously. I was the asocial French horn/mellophone player with the round glasses who sat off by himself reading science fiction and fantasy, and when I DID talk to others it always sounded like I was lecturing them.

I was essentially raised in various theaters for the first decade or so of my life, so most of my early childhood memories revolve around stages.

My nickname in middle school was Harry Potter for my then-eery resemblance to Daniel Radcliffe.

I was a practicing Wiccan for several years, until I realized that I had no desire to be associated with the vast majority of those who call themselves Wiccans. Now I'm somewhere between a Ch'an Buddhist and a non-denominational Pagan/Occultist with Odinist leanings. And yet my dad's a lapsed Irish Catholic and my mom's an Agnostic Jew who sang soprano in the Catholic Choir. And I enjoy going to Mass on the extremely rare occasions I do so. Go figure.

In high school I was simultaneously in a performing ballroom dance troupe AND a breakdance crew. Yeah. I'm just that cool.

I have a completely irrational yet powerful hatred of koalas and all that they stand for. Smug bastards.

  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–35

Any (preferably multiple) of the following applies:

You are also a wayfaring anachronism with a dark sense of humor and you feel like going on an adventure.

You've read and understood both Dostoevsky and Kerouac, but don't think that makes you better than other people.

You've read and appreciated both Feynman and Gaiman.

You're not a hipster. (Corollary: You're neither stupid nor boring.)

You don't use "lol" anywhere in your profile. Even ironically.

You acknowledge the genius of both Vincent Van Gogh and Auguste Rodin, and think Andy Warhol is a hack.

You know how to ballroom dance and want to help me de-rustify my skills.

You drink Scotch and Irish whisk(e)y, Russian vodka, and/or good beer.

You read xkcd and/or SMBC.

You were previously aware (prior to reading this, I mean) that George R R Martin's books are known as "A Song of Ice and Fire," and not the "Game of Thrones series," and it annoys the hell out of you when others call it that.

You've heard of Wharton Esherick.

You know how to play the fiddle and want to jam with me and my tinwhistle. Or teach me to fiddle.

You split your infinitives and end sentences with prepositions simply because you can.

You recognize that smartassery is truly an art.

Or if you make really good cookies. Like, mind-blowingly good. And want to give me some. That'd be cool too.
