My self-summary
All I really want to do is enjoy as much life as I can. I don't care if it's watching Game of Thrones or learning yet another language, as long as I derive enjoyment from it.

I am a linguist and I love learning more everyday. I think it's infinitely easier to understand other peoples culture through their language. Go to Germany and speak German with a heavy American accent. Just the fact that you are willing to learn another language as an American instead of being a xenophobic prick will land you plenty of awesome friends. Also lots of free booze. I hear this does not work well in Paris.

I like to keep an open mind on most things but not so open my brain falls out. This basically means I respect boundaries of peoples beliefs. I however laugh at people who think gravity is a theory and is therefore arguably non existent. I will also just stare at you if you tell me about how Elvis is haunting your stairwell or 9/11 was an inside job.

My name is Paul, my fathers name is Paul, and likewise with his Father for four generations total. I was told we were too poor to afford a new name when I was born. On top of that I don't even have a middle name. I got shafted.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished 13 months in sunny Afghanistan. Going to rock out a degree now.

If the mood hits me I can dance really, really, really terribly. Unless I am in Europe. They seem to think I can dance there.

Also I go watch the Ravens play smashmouth football a lot.
I’m really good at
Picking up Languages, friends, and drink tabs.
I can rock most people at Words with Friends.
Being on time unless it's a party. Nobody shows up on time for parties.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall and bald and bearded. I get very loud during Ravens games.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like good old school suspense driven horror. Machen, Poe, Lovecraft. That type of stuff. I also read RR Martin and Steven Erickson.

I like a lot of movies. Cohen Brothers, Wes Anderson, anything with Daniel Day Lewis. Lost in Translation, A Knight's Tale, and The Life Aquatic top my list.

HBO has the best shows. Pretty much anything on that channel. Running Man is great and if America can assemble a cast with half as much chemistry, they will have the next big thing. Archer!

My music tasted are all over the place. Gorillaz, David Bowie, Deichkind, Seeed, NIN, Ludacris, The Seatbelts, The Pillows, Shiina Ringo.

I eat anything that tastes good save seafood. I am not afraid to try most things. I love foreign foods of all types.
Six things I could never do without
Meat, Passport, Books, skepticism, a series of tubes, and social lubricant.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people wear transitions lenses? They are like jorts for your face.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You may not know this but Flipper is not representative of dolphins in general. Whilst chilling on an island in Australia we had a nightly "feed the wild dolphins fish" shindig. I wanted to give it a go being somewhat adventurous despite the fact I can't swim for shit. I had the mandatory life preserver on, it would be fine. The marine biologist hands me a fish and lets me approach Bobo the semi-wild dolphin. I approach this monsterous mammal and boldly offer the fish. Bobo clamps down on my hand like a vice. Now this isn't necessarily bad as Dolphins have conical teeth. So yeah dolphin has my hand no big deal, right? I neglected to mention I was 15 at the time and weighed nothing. Bobo jetted off to open water with me in tow. I struggle as much as I could and finally worked myself free.

Sweet sweet Freedom! Oh wait...I am about 100 yards out in the middle of the damn Great Barrier Reef. I am terrified of fish let alone all the other myriad sea creatures that Australia is known for losing the occasional life to. So here I am a human buoy in the dusk of an Australian evening just bobbing up and down with no clue how to get back to shore.

Luckily it only took fifteen minutes for them to find me via jet ski.

So yeah, fuck Dolphins.
You should message me if
You have an open mind.
You realize there is more to the world than your own perspective.
