My self-summary
Here's a question. Why are most my top percent matches in California? Do more people from California use OKCupid, or do I belong in California? Am I really a West Coast guy?

There was a fear I was going to be a pyromaniac when I was younger. But, I outgrew it, or actually managed to channel the remaining adult mania into the fire arts. You know, melting metal and casting it into various shapes and sizes; casting glass, and firing clay. I even used to blow glass, but the hobby got too expensive.

So, I guess I'm an artist. When asked about that, I have to resist the urge to tell the unvarnished truth, which is: "I like to make cool shit". Sorry, no deep social meaning, no obscure symbolism, no associational engine off the tracks, just like making cool-looking shit.

I'm also a teacher, teaching bronze casting. So, I'm a bronze age hero to some.

I'm also a very manly man. I gotta be, since, well, how many other men do you know can cut metal with electric fire?

Electric fire good!
What I’m doing with my life
Art! Makin' Art! And teaching it too, which pays the bills.
I’m really good at
Making material instrumentalities manifest.
The first things people usually notice about me
My spectacular manly buttocks.

No, but I am muscular, for being in average shape. I try to maintain a healthy, active, athletic lifestyle so that I can do my work.
The six things I could never do without
1) Me. (Too obvious?)
2) My Brain (I try to keep it in shape, but actually also...)
3) My Body (Can't do much without it, and I use more than my brain to think.)
4) My Friends and Family (Who may occasionally be a pain, but then I reciprocate. So it all works out).
5) Material Instrumentality (the whole culture/tech thing is better than just these pathetic teeth and claws of mine).
6) My Skills (I collect skills the way others collect knick-knacks. And we all owe society as a whole for these skills. Sorry, Ayn Rand fans, I prefer civilized company, so Shoo!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Fermi Paradox.

I made you laugh.
