My self-summary
My greatest fortune is ending up with a brain wired for optimism.

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, a flighty hermit, 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.

Emphasis on the hermit part, though. As of writing this I've stepped outside of my apartment once in the last two weeks. I just ordered popcorn off amazon despite having a grocery store two blocks away.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Making surveys, proto festivals, and porn.

I just moved to Boston. I am originally from Idaho, though, where I was homeschooled until adulthood by professionally religious fundamentalists and spent my time memorizing the Bible and shooting unlicensed firearms.


pooping out a scifi story or two
I’m really good at
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:

Wild Seed
The Hobbit
Permutation City
Name of the Wind
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), Westworld, 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.
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

inconsistent punctuation.

Soylent, the universe's breast milk, without which my only sustenance would be tree bark and handfuls of shredded kraft cheese
I spend a lot of time thinking about
definitely not zen

Everybody naked.


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

how to interact with an attitude of silence

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

the way it feels to think

The neolithic period

Is academia actually just bullshit?

Nonviolent Communication.

Why I'm attracted to status more than anything fucking else, no matter how sensible

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 pitchforks and spears and spiked maces
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

you can convince my pussy you're high status

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.

also bonus: image collection of all okc messages received over a 1-week period
The two of us
