My self-summary
take one of these_surveys I made.

One of my primary goals is learning to be more rational, despite my penchant for hippie scarves and high doses of psychedelics.

I'm cripplingly absentminded. I will do everything in my power to avoid cooking food. Fuck food. I am domestically disabled in everything except hair braiding and cloak-making.

I am libertarian, non-hierarchical poly, a flighty hermit, feminism-skeptical.

I advocate equality for germs and am active in the germ community. I don't tolerate germaphobes. If you're one of those antibiotic supporters you can get off my profile right now.
#notallgerms
What I’m doing with my life
Making surveys, proto festivals, and porn.

I'm mostly in Cambridge (though in Vegas for the AVNs). I am originally from Idaho, though, where I was homeschooled until adulthood by religious isolationists and spent my time memorizing the Bible and shooting unlicensed firearms.

I’m really good at
miming
photoshop
morse code
reddit karma
leaving the country
typing extremely fast
solving those little toy puzzles
leaving the country again, surprise
making my hands sweat with sheer willpower
The first things people usually notice about me
If you had to predict my job from my streetwear, you might guess "Catholic schoolteacher" or "betrothed Amish woman" or "nanny for a couple with jealous wife". Actually, that last one is sort of close to the truth, through a certain lens and sufficient lighting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books that made me feel something:

Wicked
Elantris
Wild Seed
The Hobbit
Permutation City
Name of the Wind
Godel-Escher-Bach
The Tombs of Atuan
Man's Search for Meaning
Ender's Game/Shadow/etc
the Fifth Life of the Catwoman
The Metamorphosis of the Prime Intellect
Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

TV/Movies: The Fountain, Firefly and Serenity, LOTR, Amelie, Chronicle, GoT, Before Sunset, Only Lovers Left Alive, Star Trek (DS9, Next Gen, Voyager), and trashy reality TV.

Music: Stuff that goes "bwaaaaaaaaashhhruuu" and stuff that goes "bloop CHA bloop CHA tick ta" and also stuff that sounds like "swEEEeeeEEEaaaaEEEE"

Video Games: Journey, TF2 (engie-pyro-sniper), Overwatch (Symmetra-Zenyatta-Torby), Civ 5

I also like Lesswrong and Slatestarcodex, Reddit and Tumblr.
The six things I could never do without
Social dancing (ballroom/blues/fusion). Also I will do Lindy Hop if that's what you do. I will look like I'm enjoying it, say I'm enjoying it, and maybe even think I'm enjoying it, but I'm lying.

a minimal government that doesn't forcibly regulate nonharmful behavior or take my money-OH WAIT I GUESS I DO HAVE TO DO WITHOUT THIS

The internet, which is unfortunately illegal to marry.

Financial independence

inconsistent punctuation.

Soylent, the universe's breast milk and my sole salvation from a slow death on a diet consisting of handfuls of shredded cheese, dark chocolate, cough drops, leaves, and bits of greasy aluminum foil.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everybody naked.

What it will feel like to die. What it feels like to die.

How to more effectively demonstrate compassion and understanding to both myself and others. How to ask the right questions.

wtf does it mean to know something, wtf is meaning, wtf is information goddamnit, and consciousness what the hell, where did it come from, what the fuck

The neolithic period

Nonviolent Communication.

Why I don't have sex with everyone. I like sex. Not having sex with everyone makes zero sense and I feel weird and guilty about it. Is sexual altruism a thing?

Chesterton's fence-ing the fuck out of traditional gender roles.

Religion and cultures as evolutionary bodies
On a typical Friday night I am
plucking flowers, strings, or hair
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't wash my hair and I rarely shower. I do, however, regularly use soap on my hands and butthole in order to avoid being a walking poophuman. Don't worry though, if I smell bad you can tell me. Please tell me.
You should message me if
you're into rough conversation and choking out bias

If I don't reply to you, it's most likely because my life would be unfeasibly clogged with OKC if I responded to every message containing your level of quality.
