My self-summary
Short and sweet: Either ya like documentaries, thought experiments, breakin some laws, going to a science lecture, watching Rick and Morty and then taking over the world, or you don't like me. ;) Blamo.

Longer: Ohhhh don't read this part, just skip to the oh-so-interesting sex questions in the question/answer section! :D Just kidding. Ok but for real, here's a little more about me: My Briggs-Meyers is INTJ. I am playful, kinda touchy-feely (I like my hugs and such), prone to say things that sometimes seem offensive (I am very objective in my thought process), sort of a "schemer" (I break some rules...) a humanist, bit of a nerd, and am constantly frustrated by all this untapped potential. (Explanation:) I find it very hard to do many things exclusively for my own sake. I.E. I am much more of a giver. A philanthropist. It is really a curse. It is also just my nature. Most of all, I am a person who loves change. New things. I am willing to take the chances, and try something I've never tried before. Ok! now that you're done reading this, just go ahead message me already and tell me how terrible of a person I am, or how wonderful, or when your next getaway is going to be so that we can have some fun together alreadyyy
What I’m doing with my life
For now, I work as a mechanic- but I have other investments that are evolving as well. Who knows what the future will hold. I'm excited. :)
I’m really good at
Fixing things. - Mechanic

Thinking things. -Prone to delving into ridiculous thought experiments.

Listening to people - I am pretty good at getting people to talk about themselves; and I believe it's because it's easy to tell that I'm a very genuine person. I luv everyone (even though some of them do legit need a clubbing)

Also, let me just say that I love the outdoors, and I am pretty big fan of outdoor activities. Running, hiking, canoeing, fishing. I'm up for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I make them notice themselves.

...or that I'm a goof. Take yo pick.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have kind of fallen off on my reading the last few months, but here is a list of media that I have enjoyed. Find any in common?? Name eight or more and you could be eligible forrrrrrr (just kidding)

My most memorable read yet, I would have to say, was Atlas Shrugged. It was harsh, and quite antithetical to my own views, which made the point that it conveyed all the more acute. Actually, because of time constraints, I take in almost all my books via audiobook.

Books I enjoyed:

Lord of the Flies
Brave New World
Enders Game
Speaker for the Dead (From Ender's series)
Catch 22 (Minus a few chapters :/ )
A Brief History of Time

Some Favorite Movies:

Rick and Morty!!! (T.V. Show)
The Great Gatsby
The Fountain (If you ask me who Hugh Jackman is, I won't say "The Wolverine" without also adding this to it)
Life of Pi
Journey to the West (Chinese)
Her
The Matrix
Princess Mononoke (of course)
The Princess Bride (had to list the other Princesses)
Hero (Jet Li. Possibly my fav movie ever)
Cats (The musical)
Mulan
Book of Eli
The Cube
The Sandlot!
What Dreams May Come
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?
Waking life (If you haven't seen it, you're not allowed to see it without me!)

...really, a ton. I think that list will give you an idea of the range, though.

Music:

I like some Oldies, like Sanatra, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Lionel Richie and all that. The 60's and 70's were awesome; but I'm always looking for good modern stuff. My favorite guys right now are Daft Punk, MGMT, Gorillaz, Empire of the Sun, Phoenix, a few others.
The six things I could never do without
1. Transhumanist hopes.
2. Truth.
3. Change.
4. Learning.
5. Someone to listen to all my nonsense.
6. The one who found out it's not nonsense at all. *wink*
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. All the time. Physics, morality, economics, psychology, history, social trends... Thinking is fun. I love the wacky connections that come parading out of my head.

Even more fun, is to find another person like me who doesn't get tired of analyzing the details. Even if the conversation ended up at a huuuge point of contentment, I'll still leave with a smile on my face! :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh who knows what schemes the evening will give birth to, given this brain of mine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to go frolic in a field of lilies.

No but really, the most private thing that I am willing to admit is that I have realized that I am really not the kind of person that can feel fulfilled alone. They seem to say that a person should be able to achieve a state of self-fulfillment/wholeness as an isolated individual; but I have realized that I just cannot do that. And I am finished pretending that its some kind of ideal state. I'm just done with all forms of self-denial/asceticism. I know I need to share life with another special person, it's not that complicated. It's just natural, really.
You should message me if
You can be practical, but you still have your dreams.
You can be cynical, but you still have your hopes.
Your heart is bigger than your faults.
And, most important of all, you still believe in love.
