My self-summary
I used to do a lot of neuroscience for the better part of the last decade. This involved a lot to time poking brains with electrodes. My life then would have been well described by this script:

Now I work in the medical device industry.

--------------------------
My name as defined by Urban Dictionary:

A form of South African slang. Used to express joy or satisfaction at something or someone

Guy 1: Hey man, how is everything with work?
Guy 2: Everything is Luka.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently writing an inspirational book and part memoir, titled "Shark Fin Soup for the Soul."
I’m really good at
I can tell what a cloth is made of just by touching it.

Also, Scrabble. Bring it.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm so woke.

Also, the soft, inviting presence of my beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sushi, thin crust pizza, deep dish pizza, pizza pizza, mixed berry pie, rare steak, oysters, all cheese, single malts hold a special place in my heart.

I also love late night coffee. Really, I love any kind of coffee and usually have 4-5 cups a day.
Six things I could never do without
Family, friends, my dog, coffee, my subscription to "Cat Fancy", Miss Vickie's Salt and Malt Vinegar chips.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people that say blowhard statements like "good for you", "pat yourself on the back", "define normal", "everything happens for a reason". Or "it's for a good cause" as opposed to what? 10K for the Hitler youth?

what I should do if I'm sitting in the middle seat on a full subway car and most of the car empties, including one person next to me. Should I move to the empty seat? The person beside me might find it insulting. But if I stay where I am, s/he might wonder why I don't move one seat over and give us both more space.

why do run-on sentences always sound better than rewording them to be grammatically correct.

how far away does a person have to be for me to not hold the door for them? If they're 15 meters away, see me going inside and holding the door, they'll usually pick up the pace so as to not inconvenience me. Well, then, what's the point of me holding the door for them in the first place if I'm making them run?

why do people insist on saying that they can't see "likes"? Is it not the point to not see them until you eventually match with someone who liked you back?
On a typical Friday night I am
Typically with a nice glass of rosé, gluten-free yogurt, and some Yanni in the background.

I also have a bucket list that I'm constantly amending, crossing things off when I achieve them and adding things when they come to me. The following is my current, but no doubt not permanent bucket list.

- Do a fire walk at a Tony Robbins seminar
- Attend a tomato festival in Italy
- Attend the ketchup festival in Idaho
- Hand forge a knife
- Learn taxidermy
- Start a cult
- Become a whistleblower
- Hug a koala bear
- Get thrown out of a casino for winning too much
- Swim with dolphins and not be attacked by them
- Complete a zumba class
- Have my hands registered as weapons
- Eat a scallop in its original shell
- Swim with a manatee
- Spearhead something metaphorically
- Eat manatee meat
- Incite the Amish to violence
- Donate my beard to Locks of Love
- Be the guest judge at a dance battle
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to watch Sex and the City.

The semicolon intimidates me; I still use it, but have no idea if I'm doing it correctly.
You should message me if
you find this bizarre misuse of logic and the English language a comedic masterpiece.

"We are evolving every year, every decade. That’s a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels."
- Gary Goodyear, Canadian Minister of Science

Also, if you agree with this Stephen Fry quote:

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."

and finally

"I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them."
- Andrew Bernard, The Office
