My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Now with a new and improved profile!

I am probably a bit different than anyone you'll meet. I enjoy karaoke, coffee, and have been to known to engage in writing screenplays and stageplays. I like all kinds of foods, music, movies, and other types of entertainment. I am particularly interested in ancient Assyrian counterculture poets, trade policy between the Russian and Aztec empires, and the impact of Minoan sculpture on Imperial Japanese militarism. If you can hold a conversation about these topics, I would love to meet you. If you can't, then maybe we can still meet but we'll be missing out some serious nonsense.

I'm also a bit of an scientific renegade. I currently am trying to subsidize myself doing custom plastic and electronic work to pursue my desire to do R&D in science and mathematics which at the moment is focused on cheap and practical biomedical instrumentation. I refuse to teach or work in a corporate or academic environment. This gives me the freedom to evade budgetary, ethical, or other types of constraint. I find those environments highly corrupt and in a sort of creative straightjacket. It makes me poor but it also makes me resourceful and innovative. I also get kind of a high off of being able to build stuff that retails for thousands even tens and hundreds of thousands for next to nothing.

If you want details (nerd alert), it comes down to applying advanced mathematics to analog and signal processing circuits to create cheap and highly accurate instrumentation. In other words, corporate and academic environments, and these young engineers and scientists are overreliant on digital processing power to waste their time using old school analog circuitry and mathematics. If you're into this stuff or need an electric guitar amp, pedal, or custom car electronics, let me know. My current projects are a bluetooth enabled electrocardiagram that communicates with a car to use the music on the radio to modulate heart rate variability and a massively parallel computer using 100 <$5 microcontrollers to control and evaluate >10,000 cheap (< 1 cent) sensors to achieve the same precision as laboratory instruments costing 100-10000 times as much.

Besides all of that stuff, I'd like to think I'm usually humorous, provocative, and nonsensical. I'm a bit of a nihilist so no matter my own beliefs or self-appointed role as the defender of the faith in science, I still think it's all ridiculous. I've been a graduate mathematics student, a bouncer, an outcast, captain of academic quiz team, and a consistent iconoclast.

After all of that, it really comes down to two things. Can you enjoy a good meal with me and appreciate good movies? While it's a horrible first date, I think it's essential for anything long term. If you can see us eating at an Uzbek, Peruvian, Middle Eastern, or whatever country's cuisine I haven't tasted yet's restaurant followed by watching a movie by Kurosawa, Scorsese, Kubrick, or other autuer, it'll be a good time for me. I love books as well!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out what to do with my life and making sure I have some good stories to tell my grandkids.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing Lady Gaga at karaoke, learning mathematics and science, being very funny, having deep conversations particularly about epistemological, metaphysical, and ethical topics. I particularly like combining these activities to create the most absurd environment possible.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Blond hair, blue eyes, a very jovial countenance, strong build (a bit flabby but working hard on that one), intelligence, and culture.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A lot of math, science, engineering, and physics books that put blank stares on most people's faces, Russian literature (particularly 19th century), Faust by Goethe, Shakespeare (when motivated), Steinbeck, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dickens, Voltaire, Nietzsche, Lord Byron. Usually got a history book in the mix. As of this writing, the last two were King Leopold's Ghost and Forbidden History Shelf's Blowback.

Movies: Love classic movies, anything with Greta Garbo, James Bond, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Coen brothers, foreign and independent, anything by a great director, sometimes stupid comedy.

Music: virtually everything including opera, pop, some gangsta rap, classic rock, oldies, disco, etc.

I love food. Particularly Indian, Thai, Mexican, and anything I haven't tried before. I would love to try some of the stuff they would cook on the original Iron Chef. In general, if it doesn't make me sick and tastes good, I'll eat it.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
You have to really get to know me to let me reveal some of this. Not that it's lascivious or anything like that, but I think of things that people usually tend to find very philosophically objectionable. Other than that, I think about funny things to help people smile.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working or in some other situation where I am thinking that this sucks and I would rather be doing something with someone special that may be able to one day love and appreciate me. I'm assuming that's what most of us do on a Friday night.
