A few things that make me different than the average guy:
I've been vegan for about three years, and it's been several years since I've had a drink of alcohol. If your diet is different from mine, or if you enjoy a drink every once in a while, don't let my weird rules scare you away. I'm perfectly comfortable around drunk carnivores, and hopefully you'll be just as comfortable around a sober vegan. :)
The third thing that makes me different from your average dude is that I believe in one less diety than most people. I try to be respectful of other's beliefs, but if you put a higher value on faith than science, then I hate to say it, but it probably won't be a match made in heaven (pun intended).
One of my goals is to travel more often, even if it's just a weekend trip.
In the last few years, I've accomplished some major goals. The one thing that was missing was having a special woman to share in the adventures. I'm not the type that needs to be in a relationship, but for me, spending time with someone you care about, and that cares for you, makes everything a bit better.
This is sounding really cliche isn't it? Moving on then...
Photography, or at least I like to think I'm really good. The more complicated the assignment, the bigger the reward when it's complete. I love shooting panoramas.
I really like figuring out what makes people tick, why they think the way they do, and understanding their views. I should have gone into neuroscience.
And (over)analyzing things.
TV: Futurama, Derek, anything Seth MacFarlane, and any Nickelodeon show from the 80s or 90s.
Books: My Name Is Bill, Born to Run, The Demon-Haunted World, A Brief History of Time.
Movies: Dark City, Ted, Finding Forrester.
How America could put a man on the moon almost 50 years ago, but not today. And how a man can ascend 120,000 feet, jump, and land on the ground on his feet.
Why so many people believe things that to me seem totally batshit crazy.
Science, astrophysics, and how the universe works.
I've never seen Top Gun, and have no desire to see it.
Baseball, football, hockey, basketball...not into them.
You freakin' love science.
You have compassion for people and animals.
Your political views lean toward the left.
You aren't scared of fruits and veggies.
You don't need booze to have a good time...or can at least appreciate the reasons why someone would choose to abstain from alcohol.
