My self-summary

I mean...baah?

(You should not read much from the age range, over to the right. OKCupid has made it so you have to pay to message people who don't include you in the range, and I dislike this. I will talk to nearly anyone.)

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool geek. I love fantasy, science fiction, actual science, technology, and things that go bump.

I am into exploring urban, rural, and wilderness areas of all sorts, I try to get out to do some urban spelunking. I especially like abandoned areas.

Gloom makes me happy: Graveyards, swamps, overcast days (stormy weather is a beach day, to me), spooky settings, and old farms at night appeal to me.

I've been told I am pretty laid back. But I can be kind of a jerk when it comes to standing up for what I believe in. And I have some very strong ideas in the areas of ethics and social justice.

And yes, most of my pictures are recent.

I can be quite forceful.

To name myself, since I appreciate labels: atheist, poly, skeptic, scientist, INTJ, lover, fighter, gamer, feminist, geek, nerd, explorer, student, transhumanist, father, teacher, humanist, kinky, dominant, top, cisgendered, heterosexual, male, sadist, daddy.
I’m really good at
Finding solutions to problems, whistling, and rocking the boat.

If the boat's rocking?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Among my many categories I am a science fiction/fantasy geek. The Lord of the Rings is both one of my favorites in books and movies. I was a Lord of the Rings fan before it was cool. Does this mean I was a hipster before it was cool? I'm a hipster hipster? Strike that. I am, however, so hip I can't see over my pelvis.

I've read so much science fiction and fantasy I sometimes can't even recall what I've read when I pick it up. I will get through the first chapter in a book I think is new to me and think, "Oh. I've read it." But I read it anyway. And since there is a handy site for that kind of thing, I will point to it here:

Non-fiction includes anything that can teach me something about Math, Physics, Geology, Astronomy, etc. I used to check Algebra and Calculus books out of the library and work my way through them.

I am pretty diverse in my musical interests. Though I've found that if Dean Winchester likes it, I probably do as well.

I can't think of a type of food I've tried and not liked. I am willing to try anything within reason, food or otherwise.

For TV, I like Dr. Who and I've been watching since I was a wee lad. I'm a Tom Baker fan for life, but these new guys seem to be doing it justice. Examples: Supernatural, True Blood, Dexter (up until that last bit), and Archer are all good.

Adult Swim is awesome. Robot Chicken is pure genius.

All that said, my primary hobbies are reading, writing, D&D, video games, biking, and exploring. All of my best friends I have met through D&D and MUDs. I've met quite a few on World of Warcraft. D&D and other role-playing games (mostly D&D) have been prominent in my life since I was about four, so it's been there through all my formative stages, and I have been there through its formative stages.

I will have to include video games in this area, too, but there are too many to name. I've been all up on Diablo 3, lately, and I always go back to Yuri's Revenge, eventually. Master of Orion 2 is the only Master of Orion worth a damn. Zork was awesome. I cut my teeth coding C on a MUD called VargonMUD (Successor to MUDDog). The Fallout series has been a great love, from the first one to New Vegas. All good.
The six things I could never do without
1. To crush my enemies
2. See them driven before me
3. Hear the lamentations of their women
4. Something to complain about
5. Righteous indignation
6. Your mom

Seriously. What kind of question is this?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Weird things. Too many to list here. Heck I might be thinking about many things at any given time. Generally the contents of my thoughts might make decent premises for science fiction, fantasy, and horror anthologies. Or even a BDSM scenario or twenty.

I think about transhumanism and immortality a lot. I also believe that if we're not off this rock by the time the sun swells and swallows it, then we don't deserve to exist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Days of the week or the time of day seem to mean little on my schedules. But I love the resources the internet has to offer. I intend to go prowling more, especially if I can get someone to go with me.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a favorite fork.

Bonus experience: sometimes I just people on matching by enemy percentage and find out how terrible some if them are as people.
You should message me if
... you have questions or comments. Or maybe if you want to see if we'd click.

If you want a peek into what appeals to me, I have a tumblr.
I have more on Fetlife, if one is inclined to learn more in detail.

If you have any questions, comments, gripes, complaints, praise, or anything else, I would love to hear from you. I am quite diplomatic when approached with courtesy, no matter the views of the person approaching me. How am I going to change minds, win friends, and influence people, otherwise?
