My self-summary
My greatest fortune is ending up with a brain wired for optimism (in a vat, on a shelf?).

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

I am non-hierarchical poly, libertarian, aspergery, hermit queen, devoid of outrage, and skeptical of the whole social justicy fad that seems to have soaked through boston like cat pee on my laundry pile.

The best way to meet me is to show up at a group event I'm at, and then carefully approach sidelong while avoiding quick movements or eye contact.

I filter out messages from people below 85% match. I won't see or read your message if we're below 85%.
What I’m doing with my life
I do porn, surveys, and proto-festivals. Also working in startups!

I just moved to Boston. I am originally from Idaho, where I was homeschooled until adulthood by professionally religious fundamentalists 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
not leaving my house
typing inhumanely 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
Tao Te Ching
Permutation City

Ender's Game/Shadow/etc

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

TV/Movies: The Fountain, Before Sunset, Star Trek

Music: Stuff that goes "bwahru" and "bloop CHA bloop" and "swEEEee"

Video Games: Journey, Overwatch (Symmetra-Zenyatta-Torby), Cities Skylines

I also like Lesswrong and Slatestarcodex, Reddit and Tumblr.
Six things I could never do without
Social dancing (ballroom/blues/fusion), but fuck lindy hop

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

My bidet, financial independence, soylent, and inconsistent punctuation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
definitely not zen

Everybody naked.

dying

Cultivating compassion

how to hold an attitude of silence

the nature of meaning/information and dat tight infinite regression of understanding tho

the way it feels to think

classical motherfuckin antiquity

Is academia actually just bullshit?

Nonviolent Communication.

Why I'm attracted to status more than anything fucking else, no matter how sensible. convince me you're rich/prestigious/accomplished and my vagina will be like hello, goodmorning, who do we have here?

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

Religion and cultures as evolutionary bodies

what would happen if I gave 50 different okcupid people the same date and time to meet me at an open field, but upon arriving they find only a pile of spiked maces
On a typical Friday night I am
plucking strings or pubes
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.
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.
