I like adventure, travelling to new places and seeing and doing new things.
If we have some common interests then I can probably talk your ear off, but I've never been good at small talk.
At the moment, I have a few goals I like to work towards
- I want to learn to fly
- I want to visit each continent at least once and ideally each country within a few regions. So far I've seen some of the US and spent about a month in Europe. South America next maybe?
- I want to learn a new language, though I've never been good at this for some reason
- At some point in my life I want to have something to do with space development and/or exploration
I try to keep in shape when I can, though I do miss being able to walk to work. I particularly like hiking, especially in mountainous terrain
- I know tons of useless trivia on all sorts of random subjects, particularly anything science related
- Listening & thinking
Lord of the Rings, Dune, Ringworld, Uplift series, Wheel of Time, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (and a lot more, these are the just ones that instantly came to mind). Recommend me some good ones!
The Godfather, The Usual Suspects, Lethal Weapon, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Quest for the Holy Grail & Life of Brian, Spaceballs, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz
Mad Men, Blackadder, Flying Circus, Whose Line is it?, Family Guy, Futurama, HIMYM, Babylon 5, The Daily Show, Parks & Recreation, Rome, The Office, Burn Notice, Top Gear, Arrested Development, QI, etc
Classic rock mostly, so the Rolling Stones, Dire Straits, The Who, Queen, Chris deBurgh and others. Nightwish is a favourite. Some more recent music is pretty ok too, though it really depends on the song. I dislike rap and country in general, but there are some songs I do like.
Not a big fan of seafood (except lobster!). I love spicy foods, Indian in particular; Thai is also quite good. Interested in trying different cusines.
