I believe the greatest development in the history of mankind is ramen, followed closely by memory foam. I believe that military funding should be gutted, and given to healthcare, science, and education, in that order. Yes, I'm biased. I appreciate art, and music in particular, but I think the world would be a much better place if more people dreamed of curing cancer or developing renewable energy than of being successful artists. I think that it's important to test your beliefs empirically before you commit to them as fact. I think that evolution, sexual education, and how awesome dinosaurs are should be taught in school, from a very early age. I think that the only place for religious texts in school are in fiction and philosophy classes. I think that the world would be a better place if we all lived by factual evidence, and that to refute evidence as propaganda or fake news is immoral and destructive to society.
I have a fair idea of what I'm looking for in a partner in crime. Cleverness is my top priority, especially if it's in one of my fields of study (neuro, pathology, oncology, music). We'll probably connect better if you have some post-graduate education, or at least are very ambitious in whatever you do in life. If you're kind of geeky, we'll probably get along well. I'm nonreligious, and I'm not going to be capable of faking it for the purposes of a relationship. I will argue to resolve problems, but I try not to take things personally, and I think keeping score in arguments is unhealthy in a relationship. I'm well-trained in human anatomy, and I've been doing hand exercises for music for about 25 years, so as a result I give pretty awesome massages. I think that any two people can be happy together if they're willing to put in the effort. I think there is no true love without some element of self delusion, but that it's a benign form of insanity that makes us all better.
INTP. Chaotic neutral, bordering on chaotic good.
Is that a boring answer? I'm worried that's a boring answer.
Let's make the answer I send messages in Morse code that people pick up on their fillings, but are generally only understood by crazy homeless people on the subway.
Eventually, they realize that I take everything way too seriously.

Pandora says my favorite stations are Brazilian Jazz, Vince Guaraldi, and Van Morrison
Food - I'm pretty adventurous in this regard. I've found great restaurants with cuisine from every corner of the world in in the city. However, I do believe that somewhere in the universe is a perfect bowl of ramen waiting for me to eat it.

And seriously, who named a cancer gene Sonic Hedgehog? I mean honestly, now I have to put it in reports when someone has a mutation in it! It does make some beautiful tumors though...
You're looking for someone to go see the next Marvel and/or Star Wars movie with. Or you're crazy excited they made American Gods into a series.
You can deal with me having mild obsessive compulsive disorder. I'm working on it, but I know it will never be entirely fixed. As a corollary, I'm not great around pets, between my allergies and my anxiety around them. I know, I know... The upside is that the same parts of my brain that make me quirky also make me pretty entertaining.
You know that no relationship is perfect, and even with the best of intentions, conflict is inevitable, but you still think that trying is still worth the effort.
Your profile doesn't read like the very beginning or very end of Flowers for Algernon. But if you know how it reads without looking, we'll probably get along just fine.
I'll do my best not to be creepy. I hear that there's a lot of that going around from my gender on here these days.
