My self-summary
Im Paul. I'm an ISTP. In case you somehow miss it a lot of what's on my profile is trains. They have always been a big interest of mine (legend has it that it started while I was still in the womb), and are a major part of my life. I'm also a bit of an anime and sic-fi fan too, although I don't get quite so worked up about it as a lot of folks do. I love to travel, but don't get to do it nearly as much as I'd like to.

I also enjoy hiking and climbing. It would be awesome to find someone to do either or both of these with.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a machinist at the Strasburg railroad. This is pretty much a dream job, since it combines my two major interests; metal working, and old trains.

Otherwise, either working on my house or, this time of year, exploring Lancaster for trails I haven't been to. (being relatively new to the area there seem to be a lot of those)
I’m really good at
-Anything mechanical
-I'm not really conventionally artsy or creative, but I channel my creativity into the above two things, and I'd like to open my mind up to more artistic type stuff.
-Looking up obscure YouTube videos
The first things people usually notice about me
How quiet I act, but I do warm up to people. *I know - everyone says that :/
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Set Up Running, The Locomotive Up to Date (1927), Machineries Encyclopedia (1917)

Movies: Emperor of the North Pole, Sucker Punch, Fight Club, It Happened One Night, Danger Lights

Shows: I don't watch a lot of TV these days, but BSG, Firefly, and Doctor Who are a few favorites. Also Welcome to Nightvale. Guess it can still be a show without the video element eh?

Music: Huge fan of Industrial/EBM/synthpop type stuff, KMFDM, VNV nation, and Imperative Reaction just as a random few, but the list goes on and I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite. Also beginning to get into post-punk and that sort of thing. I listen to all sorts of other stuff, but if someone picked up my iPod, they'd probably think I was way more of a hardcore Goth/rivet head than I really am. Mainly I just enjoy the music.

Food: Italian, stuff with too many carbs, occasionally sushi
The six things I could never do without

Just kidding. Seriously though there's not much I can't do without besides basic needs. Over the last few years at some point or another I've gone without most of the things I would normally think to put on this list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How fine the line is between beautiful and wired, and that the line is covered in jelly fish.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends if I have the opportunity. Otherwise its just like any other night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like cuddling. I guess guys aren't supposed to say that, but fuck gender roles.
You should message me if
Just do it ;P

Bonus points if you're into trains or anything mechanical.

Also if you want to go climbing or hiking or something. Seriously, it doesn't have to be more than platonic if you don't want it to be :)

Also, if you like my profile, but suck at greetings, I understand how you feel. I have no problem if all you can come up with is "hey" (I know some other people hate that).
