My self-summary
Intelligent, curios, generous, open to trying a wide variety of experiences. Very level headed and easy to please. Like many Jews, I like to discuss things. As the comedian said, "I am not arguing, I am Jewish." I love new ideas and people who can just wander off into strange new mental landscapes with me. Terms that apply to me: autodidact, sapiosexual, vegetarian, atheist...

Divorced. Still friends. No kids.
What I’m doing with my life
As a serious hobby I study evolutionary psychology. Specifically my interests are human group evolved behaviors which are active in the psychology of war. I also investigate the evolution of virulence in multiple systems - biological, political, and economic. In general I am a "systems" big picture kind of thinker (http://theroadtopeace.blogspot.com/). Often I have some job or something too to pay the bills. Your life is more than your work, and your work is more than your job, to paraphrase Charlie King.
I’m really good at
Saying what the hell and trying. Disagreeing with my previous views. Disagreeing with everyone else's views. Singing. Back and foot rubs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am short and have some remaining curly hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a)Barbara Kingsolver, Edward Abbey, Shakespeare, E.O. Wilson, David Sloan Wilson, Tolkien, Jorge Luis Borges, I mostly read academic books related to my ideas these days.
b)The Yes Men, Eternal Sunshine, Gladiator, Team America, Monty Python, Searching for Sugarman, LoTR, The Godfather, I just am not into horror movies.
c)How about types of music instead: big band swing, opera, Andean, Russian choral music (sang with the Russian Chamber Chorus of New York), world music, reggae, klezmer, folk, '60's garage psychedelic, blues, broadway musicals...and then the greats of Rock like The Who, Janis Joplin, Beatles, Hendrix, Devo, Talking Heads, Ramones...I am not into '80's pop, country music, anything where the "singer" does not know they are screaming and/or is mostly screaming (unless it is some good old school Punk). If it is auto-tuned it is auto-off.
d) I am a vegetarian, I love cheese though. Allergic to soy, yes it sucks, so I could starve to death at Lovin' Spoonful. Love Mexican and Indian food among others. Not judging meat eaters but it is super gross to me.
The six things I could never do without
I am a bit too addicted to the internet...I have at times had not much more than a bicycle, some clothes, a toothbrush, a cooking pot, a bowl, and some silverware.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to solve all of the problems. How to end war, stop Global Warming, end the American political nightmare, make the most awesome bicycle ever, reduce inequality, perfect a soy-free veggie burger patty, get big money out of elections, convince everyone that I am right while actually being understood, stop PETA from being such huge assholes, and how to find out what the secret Jewish plot to take over the world is, so I can help.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to go hear good and interesting music, might even dance if the mood strikes. Always up for live theater too. Sadly, not my typical Friday at the moment, just not really enjoyable going alone, so help me out OkCupid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have three nipples. Yes, really.
You should message me if
You are willing to change your legal last name to "Puppet" while I change mine to "Corporate" so we can run for President/Vice President on the Corporate/Puppet ticket, 2016. Seriously. Or because you think you might like me/be able to tolerate me.
