My self-summary
Hi. My name is Ben. I am a liberal, a realist, and a bit of a cynic.

Let's see... interests include: activism, political reform, and issues of social justice. I love science in general, though physics, astronomy, and biology really peak my curiosity.

Technology. I'm obsessed.

I play a little guitar, I'm a decent (but somewhat out of practice) artist.

I'd rather watch documentaries than sports.

I’m a problem solver- it’s what they taught me in college, and now it’s what I do at work. So I see problems. Some of them don’t even know that they’re problems… I see them all the time. They’re everywhere. (extra points if you caught the 6th Sense reference).

I really don't have a "type" when it comes to women, and I'm absolutely looking for friends too, so don't hesitate to message!
What I’m doing with my life
The company I work for relocated me to Denver, I’ve been here for two years now- but haven't met a lot of people yet. I studied Information Science and Technology in College (I went to Penn State) and I am now a Software Engineer.

It’s mentally stimulating enough and it pays the bills. What I’m really looking for are things to occupy my time when I’m not at the office.
I’m really good at
1. Computer stuff
2. Solving problems logically.
3. Keeping organized.
4. Being mediocre at guitar.
5. Drawing.
6. Debate.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair I think...I've never asked anyone?

I also sift through the top 100 stuff on the cheese radio stations during my lame commute. I'll listen to whats catchy, and wonder how the other 90% ever got on the radio in the first place...

I love Chinese and Mexican food, and breakfast. I could eat only breakfast food, three meals a day, it would be amazing.

11. Logic. I love to know things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What’s at the edge of the universe.
What is beyond the event horizon of a black hole.
Whether or not time is real.
How counter-productive religion is to the advancement of the human race.
If I should buy a PS4 or an Xbox One.
What type of badass secret technology the government has that they won’t show me.
A new hobby to take up.
How and when American society will break down.
The proper greeting for a first-time meeting off OCK. Still can't figure that one out... definitely not a handshake... are we supposed to hug?
The multiverse theory.
The systematic deconstruction of the United States government.
If pi is really non-repeating.
A startup website to launch that would make me super-rich.
What people mean when they just put the " - " in the Drugs box. I think there should be an "If you've got'em" option.
Why I can’t have a pet dinosaur.
On a typical Friday night I am
Stealthily administering vigilante justice in the streets of Gotham City.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every time I read "Don't just message me 'hi'" I think "hah, I'm messaging you high right now."

I run out of clean spoons and end up eating yogurt with a fork at least once a week.
You should message me if
One or more of the following apply:

You love to learn.
You want to practice guitar with me (i know the basics).
You want to get outside and do something active.
Your are cannabis friendly.
You like gaming. I really like 1-up.

Or if you just want to- I'll chat for a bit, maybe we'll click. If you took the time to check out my profile and you think we'd get along, that's the least I can do!
The two of us
