My self-summary
Summary? I'm a mammal. With hair. lots of it. It has a name. It is
Mongo! Mongo is his own person so be careful. I suppose I should
say more. Well, I like the outdoors and the indoors equally. I'm
prone to philosophical musings as well as idiotic rants. I want to
become truly immortal but that's a project for the future. I'm an
Atheist and very satisfied with it. You can have your giant
invisible man in the sky. I prefer to think that my actions and
compassion have meaning. Altruism can't exist if you honestly think
you'll be rewarded for your good deeds. I tell anyone who's being
overly pushy with their religion "Religion is remarkably like a
Venereal Disease: I don't dislike you for having it but I want you
to keep it to yourself".

I like reading, hikes, drives, stimulating or weird conversation,
word games and old fashioned RPGs. I'm good at making friends,
not quite so good at keeping them. The little switch in my head
that let's me tell white lies or lies of kindness seems to be
broken. Unfortunately this means I also rarely hold my tongue.
Fortunately, this means I can rarely hold my tongue. It's slippery
after all.

I believe you've got to challenge your beliefs to make them
stronger. I have a difficult time being patient with twits,
halfwits and the willfully blind. I'm getting better though! I'm
smart, loyal, and some say I'm almost charismatic(*gasp!!*). I
enjoy many things and I want to meet new people(friends are
wanted). I want some people to have fun with in a variety of ways.
AND I'm magically delicious! (ugghhh, I taste like old
leather!?!?!?) Also as a matter of convenience I would also like to
point out something. If you are a christian or you believe jesus is
lord or that god plays an important part in your life: DO NOT
MESSAGE ME. Period. You might be the greatest person on earth. You
might be fun and kind and generous. However I will not respect your
beliefs or your religion. By the theory of reaganomics this lack of
respect will trickle down to you. Then again, if you can laugh at
your own beliefs maybe we can work something out. I'm acerbic But
not intentionally cruel. Well, not always.

Dracsweety1202 says: He's fucking awesome.

I am sardonic, poorly-designed, and wry

Oh hai! How's your sex life?

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence

I do not understand dancing or why people seem to think it's fun. Seriously, don't you have more interesting things to do?
What I’m doing with my life
Currently? re-evaluating it. Looking into going back to
school...wasted potential is the same thing as NO potential.
Getting back into some of my old hobbies. Also trying to find some
people I can relate to and hang out with.
Plus, he spends a lot of his time with his remarkably awesome
Sister...~Edit~ My sister, who was my best friend as well has died.
So, yeah, I don't spend so much time with her anymore. This has
left a huge hole in my life so I'm officially in the market for new
friends. I can't replace her but I'll need at least fuor or five
female friends to make a try at it. I just prefer the company of
unique and non traditional females to that of traditional women or
males. Tomboys and Metal chicks are a preference for my friends and
those who practice non conventional arts.
I’m really good at
Does it really matter? I mean seriously? Are you going to be looking at my profile and think to yourself "Gee. He's fat and hairy with a very cynical point of view but if he's good at fucking UNO I'll date him."? Though if you think like that I freely admit I need to meet you.
But on a more serious note I'm great at telling stories, Painting miniatures and a few other things. I have a lot of hobbies.
Also, I have NEVER had a net loss in Rock-Paper-Scissors. EVER. I will see into your soul and crush any chance of a net win you may have had and likely cackle while doing so. Melodramatic? Probably. Have I managed to make a basic child's game sound like a battle to the death between the forces of good and evil? I certainly hope so because THAT, my friends, is awesome.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair. It's always the hair. Or the voice. Or that I don't seem to like you. But these three traits grant me much power over minds of men. Oh yessss..... Such power....Ha. Haha. MWAHAHAHAHAHAA!! Seriously, I probably hate you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Song of fire and ice The Armageddon Rag, Fevre Dream, Dying of the Light(george r r martin) The hobbit, Villains by necessity(Eve Forward. It's out of print and hard to find but it's hugely funny>), Cats Cradle(Vonnegut) The Selfish Gene and the Blind Watchmaker(Dawkins), Origin of Species(Dar-You know what? If you don't know who wrote it you really need to die. In a fire. Please?)and many many more

Practical effects for the win, Also not the crappy prequel that managed to fuck up the mythos AND have special effects that look more dated than the 1982 version), Berserk almost anything directed by Terry Gilliam(Brothers Grimm was such the let down) or Tarantino ,The Dead(Dawn, Day, Night and the remake of Dawn. DON'T mention Diary of the Dead. That. Did. NOT. HAPPEN.) series. Really BAD horrors(ever see Bloody Mallory? Damn near had a seizure. The bat in the window just had me dying), Psychoville, Spaced, A Game of Thrones, Ravenous. Quite a few others

Games: Video games are a legitimate art form and storytelling medium. Not all games have artistic merit but then again neither do all movies or conventional works of art.

Food: Simple. Meat. Cheese. And the mystical tuber of the irish.
Six things I could never do without
My sight. My humour. My books. New ideas. My silver tongue. Privacy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Way too much. From in depth musings as to the nature of life and powers that be, to What color are my socks right now and how did this get in my pocket. Seriously, what the fuck is in my pocket? Why is that even in there?! It varies wildly depending on company and situation. currently trying to figure out what I want do with my life and where I want be. I've gotten very bored with meaningless one sided relationships. [Humour]. New jokes and new ways of delivering old ones. Why the potato is perfect. Genetic alteration and the possibility of extending my life span three fold in the near future. Wondering when the next book in the song of fire and ice series will be released. I've also been devoting a lot of time teaching myself physics. I've always been terrible with math so in my spare time I've been trying to improve my skills with it so that I can have a better understanding of physics. I know it sounds really geeky but I love To learn and I'm developing a real passion for physics(classical, particle, Astro; The good stuff). It just never ceases to amaze me how easy and hard it is at the same time. There is no greater feeling the world than that of struggling with an idea or concept and then you get that FEELING, that sensation, as it finally clicks. I don't know why but it just feels so good and it's a lingering feeling too. It stays with you for hours.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. or reading. or figuring out something to do. Pretty even distribution.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got in bad trouble with an ex because it was discovered that I
had been reading a book during sex on more than one occasion. It
also occurs to me to clarify the book thing as so many ladies seem
scared by it. The sex was absolutely terrible and I really didn't
want to do it at the time but I was guilt tripped into it. Plus it
was the latest book in the song of ice and fire series. I mean come
on! You would have read it too!

Oh and here's an odd one. I invented my own origami pattern. I think I created it when I was fourteen and it's one of the few I can still do from memory. It's a bat! Hey! Not everyone has their own unique origami pattern!

I hate the word "Mad" except in the concept of insanity. I do not, nor have I ever gotten "Mad". I have become angry but never "Mad". Mad as a synonym for angry just rubs me the wrong way.

My mass can kick your mass.

Side note...I knew the girl..You would have read the book
too...Trust me...Now hows about you tell all the lovely ladies out
there about the time you were reading at the strip club?? That was

Oh, Come on! It was a good book and the strippers scared me. Why on
earth would I pay some strange woman to pretend I'm not scum?

He knows where the Higgs Boson is. . .
You should message me if
You want to hear a story.
You want to tell a story.
You find me Attractive/Interesting/The right kind of crazy
You actively slap people who say they are keeping it real.
You want to have a Swayze Christmas.
You know what I meant when I said a Swayze Christmas.
You love the serious AND the absurd.
If you can tell me whether a quark is classified as energy or matter would be a bonus. I'm currently holding with the theory that quarks are constituents of both and therefore neither. Kinda like how light is both wave and particle while being neither. Seriously if you know this one drop me a message.
You're not particularly fragile. I endeavor to be gentle at all(well, MOSTLY all) times but I'm not always aware of the amount of momentum or force that's at my disposal.
Also, not having a proclivity for stabbing me or injuring my right eye is a definite plus. I'm seriously getting irritated with how many times people accidentally injure it.

DON't message me if:
You're after me lucky charms. Fuck you they're mine.
You have no interest in knowledge for knowledge's sake.
Jesus is your personal lord and saviour.
You think that because I used to cut a lot that I am/was Emo. That gets you slapped. Sean Connery style.
You don't understand evolution. I refuse to say "Believe" because that's just absurd. You "Believe" in Faeries, Santa and Jesus. You "Understand" reality and fact. (Sorry if I hurt any faeries feelings. I promise I'll clap extra loud just for you.)
The two of us
