My self-summary
"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." - Carl Sagan

Listen - no lies. I'm an atheist, a stroke survivor, and I'll never make enough money to raise a family.

That being said - I have a good sense of humor, and while I do walk with a cane I never let that stop me. I love joking around, watching tv or movies, playing games, and learning new things.
What I’m doing with my life
After surviving my stroke 4 years ago (apnea related), I finished college and graduated 2nd in my class sporting a 4.0 GPA. Kinda proud of that.

I'm currently working part time in Information Technology, fixing computers. I like fixing things, that's just how I am.
I’m really good at
I know how to repair and maintain computers. I've worked in the Information Technology field for the last decade.
The first things people usually notice about me
is how critical I am of modern thought and society as a whole.

Logic and science are really important to me. Carl Sagan is a personal hero of mine, without him I would have never grown to be the man I am today.

I'm an Atheist, a skeptic (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQOcdPohRKw), a pacifist, and I vote Green Party. I ask serious, logical, questions, and I expect serious, logical, answers.

I value honesty and sincerity above all else. I won't harm others just to make a buck. I'm here to help, and that means that sometimes I have to do so from the cheap seats. I've accepted that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MOVIES AND TV
Anything Sci-Fi, as long as it has good writing/acting (critical) and isn't too unbelievable. I'll watch bad sci-fi when none other is available, but I'll happily critique it afterwards. My favorite movie has to be 2001: A Space Odyssey, hands down.

I started getting into Dr. Who a few years ago, although I've always been critically curious of it (or curiously critical). My one wish is for a season that takes itself a little more seriously. My top pick for the next Doctor: John Noble (see: Fringe). My favorite doctor: Tom Baker.

I have a weakness for Hogan's Heroes. It has gotten me through some pretty tough times over the last decade.

I'm a Myth-busters fanatic.

I also enjoy science based television, such as Carl Sagan's (or NdT's) Cosmos.

BOOKS
My favorite books at the moment are The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut, the Mars series by Kim Stanley Robinson, or generally anything by Bernard Cornwell. I really enjoyed Andy Weir's "The Martian", and loved the movie adaption. I'm trying to get through two different books atm, but i'm finding it hard to find the time to finish them.

MUSIC
Generally anything from the 70's and 80's are choice picks. If I can't understand the lyrics, or if it mentions religion or war in a positive light, then I'm probably not going to enjoy the song.

FOOD
As far as food goes - I'm pretty open. If you want to get on my good side then suggest a trip to a good steakhouse. That being said, I also love a good salad. If steak wasn't so tasty, I could totally see myself going Vegetarian. ^_^
Six things I could never do without
1) Oxygen
2) Water
3) Food
4) Warmth
5) Encampment and
6) Company

Which I find ironic, of course, due to the fact that these are the very things I would need to survive on the surface of Mars.

I want to live on Mars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future of the human species.

How much longer can we maintain our current rate of population growth before the Earth is unable to provide the resources necessary to sustain us?

Few people are asking the tough questions - and that keeps me up at night.
On a typical Friday night I am
at home, relaxing with my dogs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm constantly worried.
You should message me if
you're looking for a friend to kick back with. If things evolve from there, great!
