My self-summary
Very personable, honest and caring (like everyone else here

Looking for a true best friend, partner-in-crime, and someone who enjoys being touched and touching.

Please feel free to message or IM me with whatever you would like to know or share.
What I’m doing with my life
I am translating Russian novels into abridged, more palatable editions. I change the character's names to ones like ‘Bill’ or Cathy’ and eliminate about half of them. It is a tough job, but I think someone should be doing it. (after a few thought I was serious I will admit this is not true and a reflection of my frustration with Russian novels)
Oh, and other stuff.
I’m really good at
Keeping confidences
Trivia ..not sharing which disciplines I am weakest in
Obeying the rules of the Witness Protection Program. Crap!....Sorta good at obeying the rules.
Cars, Computers
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am not as tall or thin as I appear on TV.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
T.S. Eliot

These are some of the things that have been very influential for me:
2001 A Space Oddessey
'Denial of Death' by Earnest Becker
'Does God Exist' by Hans Kung
'Connections' a television series for the BBC by James Burke

My favorite novel is 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. On the movie; If there exists a better motion picture adaptation of a book, I have not seen it.

Television: Star Trek, West Wing, Walking Dead, Columbo, historical and scientific documentaries,
Movies: The Great Escape, Casablanca, almost any 'last man on earth/living dead' movie, almost anything with Cagney or Morna Loy or Bogart, Kubrick (except Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut), Hitchcock, Fistful of Yen (from Kentucky Fried Movie), The Longest Day, Man of a Thousand Faces, Ghost, Little Shop of Horror (original), Pulp Fiction,The Thing (both original and Kurt Russel remake..have not seen the newer one), The Rathbone and Bruce Sherlock Holmes films, Fargo.
"Somebody's gotta go back and get a shitload of dimes!", "Ripley, she doesn't have bad dreams because she's just a piece of plastic.".
The six things I could never do without
The awe of knowing…
Coffee and conversation
The belief that Dave Barry and I are clones of James Thurber.
The book in my library I refer to often; ‘To Serve Man’.
…oh, and of course, my thermos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Free will and Determinism
Origin of values
The manifestation of human nature within economic systems
(insert some Milton Friedman here)
The phenomenon of consciousness and self.
Should I get a bigger tablet or a laptop?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am in therapy to accept that my long time goal of playing in the NFL is improbable.
You should message me if
you would like to meet me. Or just humor me.
