My self-summary
I'm James.

INTJ, heavy emphasis on the "I". I'm kind of turning into a recluse, and wouldn't be worried about that except I don't have someone to be reclusive with. I used to be the kind of person to like long, in-depth conversation, when such was available to me, hopefully I still am. Lifelong nerd, especially interested in science fiction and space/spacecraft, but never could find an interest in comics.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm not really sure at this point. Keeping things stable but uneventful.
I’m really good at
I really like working with my hands. Making, building, fixing, etc. When I need anything fixed, I try to do it myself. I value finding new ways to become self-sufficient.

I'm quite excellent at explaining things far too much, and surviving mock zombie apocalypses until the last moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
Few people deem it necessary to divulge their first impressions of me, but historically I've been rather quiet in new encounters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Primarily science fiction. Frank Herbert, George R R Martin, Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Orson Scott Card, Frederik Pohl. I've read Tolkein, but he wasn't my favorite.

Movies: Scifi stuff. Star Trek tickles that fancy pretty well. Interstellar was an immediate favorite as well. Other stuff too. Various other movies in any genre that focus on smart or engrossing plots and engaging characters.
TV: Rick and Morty, Star Trek (are you noticing a trend?), Black Mirror, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Code Geass, Ghost in the Shell. Too much Gundam, The Expanse, Stranger Things, Archer, etc.
Music: Nine Inch Nails, Philip Glass, Dimmu Borgir, Hiroyuki Sawano, Born of Osiris, Hans Zimmer, Maynard James Keenan, John Williams.
Food: Salty things. Sweet things. Not spicy. Specifics don't really matter, at this point I just kind of eat to get it over with.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, the world, the state of things, myself (introspection), my hobbies, rights, liberties, science, logic, religion, the future...things like that.

On that note, I consider myself an agnostic atheist (I don't know whether there is a god, but I also don't believe there is one). I used to be very combative with religious people, but my zeal has been tempered with time. I'm happy to let religious people be as long as they see fit to return the favor, but when confronted by them I have no qualms sharing my opinions.

I'm also the kind of person that thinks the world would be made better by making everyone smarter, instead of nicer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing of import, or any interest. Things are either private or not for me, not any more or less so, and I don't make anything private unless it's important.

It's not private or secret, but this seems like an appropriate section to acknowledge that I have lately gained weight that is not reflected in some of my photos (though I now have several very recent photos, they're organized newest first). My current job is more sedentary than my last, but recent efforts have started proving successful in ameliorating this.
You should message me if
If you have even the most minor motivation to do so, I don't bite (unless you ask).

I'm petty much done sending messages first though, unless we match, at least for now. Return versus effort on cold messages just doesn't make sense to me anymore. Besides, it's 2017, women are allowed to message first now.

Yeah, I said "match". A lot of people apparently don't realize likes work the same as Tinder here; when two people "like" each other the app tells them. The "DoubleTake" feature even mimics the functionality of Tinder with left and right swipes. So don't let me hear any more of that, "I'm not paying so I don't see likes" shit. Nobody pays, they match.

And yeah, I put stock in the percentages.

But definitely message me if you want to hang out and heckle shitty scifi/horror movies.
The two of us
