My self-summary
Postive towards the world, its inhabitants and coincidences.

I absolutely hated learning languages in school and sucked greatly at it. But as it turns out I absolutely love learning new languages by direct experience.

I studied theoretical physics & philosophy of physics, mainly because I thought I should start my quest for knowledge somewhere I thought physics would be to hard to study on my own by reading library books... Now I'm working in the financial sector, mainly because I needed a job and like to work in a fast-past environment. I also wanted to get familiar with the financial system.

At the moment I would not be able to tell where I will be and what I will be doing in two years time, but being only 25 that's probably how it should be.
What I’m doing with my life
Asking big questions while laughing them out of existence.
I’m really good at
Physics, Maths, Puzzles, Cooking food the way I want it.

But I'm actually most intruiged by the things I suck at:
I absolutely love music in many forms but would never be able to produce it. The thing is, the reason I find things beautiful is often correlated with the unfathomable nature of their attraction. Beauty that appeal most to me always has a certain 'Je ne sais quoi'.
The first things people usually notice about me
Curly hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Crime and Punishment, Dark Pools, Watervrees bij een verdrinking, Gullivers Travel, Max Havelaar, 1984, ...

I'm also a great fan of non-fictional books, especially if they explore history through the stories of people whose lives were greatly twisted by it. I highly recommend 'Congo: A History' by David van Reybroek

Movies: Donnie Darko, Old Boy, The Shittyness of Things, C'est Arrivé Pres de Chez vous (Man Bites Dog), A Bout de Souffle!!! (Breathless), Gegen Die Wand (Against The Wall)... Suffice to say I often find international (apparently that's how they call non-English spoken) films mildly more intriguing than the average Hollywood blockbuster. However I absolutely condemn the German/French practice of dubbing those films! I'm a big fan of subtitles.

Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Serge Gainsbourg, Jaques Brell, Four Tet, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Two Gallants, Tom Waits, The Bony King of Nowhere (hence username) ...
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life, personal and general.
On a typical Friday night I am
Holding a beer in my hand.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm affraid of the dentist.
You should message me if
You have a crazy idea, Have something interesting to tell, want to play chess, want to have a beer, meet someone new.

Bonus: You like dark cynical humor without being a cynical person.
The two of us
