My self-summary
Off the bat...I'm into intellects, mystics, minstrels, meddling minds, mindful meddlers, introverted vertebrates, extroverted invertebrates, virulent ventriloquists, bibliophiles, select extremophiles, fecund foreigners, scientists of both mind and matter, and big dogs. Sorry grabby Rabbis.

I put out for physicists.

I guess this can go here.
What I’m doing with my life
What does a man love more than life?
Hate more than death or mortal strife?
That which contented men desire,
The poor have, the rich require,
The miser spends, the spendthrift saves,
And all men carry to their graves?
I’m really good at
Avoiding mixing up your and you're. I.e., gravitas qua gravitas.

Being mostly vegan and strictly vegetarian for environmental and ethical reasons.

Hysterically explaining the hipsterpocalypse to hipstercrits.

Getting shitfaced and browsing LinkedIn...with your mom
