Technically, I'm an aerospace engineer, which also allows me to call myself a "rocket scientist". However, if you're hoping I have a pocket protector, I'm afraid I will disappoint you. I can acquire one though, if necessary.
I like all (okay, most) things British, including but not limited to: clothes, beer, music, and TV. Food? Ehh....well, fish and chips for sure.
I'm a big Flyers fan too, which really surprises people for some reason. They're always like "YOU like hockey??"
Also, as long as we're in bragging-about-myself mode, which is a rarity, I'd have to say I'm really good at being honest. I'm pretty convinced it's always better in the long run.
I listen to Car Talk every week, even though I know nothing about cars. Radiolab and Freakonomics podcasts. Update: RIP Car Talk.
Books: reading The Post-American World 2.0 by Fareed Zakaria. It's not all doom-and-gloom! Post-script: apparently, Fareed likes to plagiarize, which I found very disappointing.
Food: Indian. Oysters. Cheese (on a plate, with a side of beer). A good bacon cheeseburger. Cheesesteaks. Banh mi and pho. Tapas.
Le film: Almodovar (e.g., Volver, Broken Embraces, The Skin I Live In). It turns out, I only like Penelope Cruz when she's speaking Spanish. Quadrophenia. 24 hr Party People. This is England. L'Auberge Espangole. A Clockwork Orange. The Simpsons Movie. Slapshot. (500) Days of Summer. Airplane!. Lars and the Real Girl. Submarine. Random documentaries and foreign films I find on on-demand. According to Netflix, I like "Spanish language movies with a strong female lead". Ha! It's true.
TV: Any Anthony Bourdain-based shows, Locked Up Abroad. Air Disasters (yes, it's true). I've watched almost all of Season 1 of House of Cards in about 2 days, so I guess I like that too.
(Name that show!)
Also...I'm actually 5' 6 1/2". But, okcupid didn't give instructions about whether we're supposed to round off or truncate, so I took matters into my own hands.
