My self-summary
I am a geeky movie loving book reading shambling collection of contradictions bound tight around a core of silliness and a firm belief that life happens and we ought to take the time to enjoy it before it's gone. Some of my favorite activities; cycling, reading (mostly sci fi), watching movies, watching very bad movies and making fun of them, contemplating the heat death of the universe, prowling online for funny things, games, photography, nature walks, embracing my inner idiot, and pondering imponderables. If pressed I can have serious conversation and sometimes enjoy a good debate or exchange of viewpoints. My personal philosophy is largely similar to buddhist views which is why I select it here as a religion although I'd be hard pressed to elaborate on specific teachings and the like. Essentially suffering is caused by wanting although from my personal point of view wanting is fine it's simply a lack of balance in the wanting that leads to our misery. I do my best to seek the balance in my life and see reality as clearly as possible. I'm a huge believer in personal responsibility.

I am geeky, easily amused, and unlikely to combust
What I’m doing with my life
Currently grinding away at a new degree after the lovely economy clubbed me about the head quite savagely. Hopefully we're not all living in tents in a couple years. The schedule is a bit rough but I am enjoying the learning. Trying to hit the gym more but the class schedule makes that rough, still managing a few times a week though.
I’m really good at
Irony, seriously. Computer tinkering. Cycling, hoping to get up to 20 mile rides being easy this summer. Listening. Being silly. Being amused. Talking. Talking to myself. Reading. Thinking, sometimes. Feline herder. Evil plots for world dominion that ultimately come to nothing.
The first things people usually notice about me
The shaved head or the amusing selection of winter hats I stick on it! Who doesn't want to be warm and sport a hat that says to the world "Here is a man who is confident, or color blind!" I clean up nice though!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Classic sci-fi Asimov, Heinlein, Bradbury, Clarke, Niven. I could go on but if it's hard sf or space opera chances are I'll enjoy it. I also like fantasy. I love me some satire also, Terry Prachett is genius. I'm a history and science buff also so I enjoy articles on either one. For music I like a bit of nearly everything but country. Lately I've been on a huge coldplay kick.
The six things I could never do without
Feline overlord, internet, books, games, humor, a well honed view of the universe and my place therein.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. If something is worth thinking about it usually falls into a few categories. Either it's deeply personal and requires you to be self aware and honest, it's a matter of taste in which case what is right for you is right but only for you, or it's ethical in which case it can be argued ad nauseam and is rarely worth the trouble.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays I mostly like to stay in, recover from the work week and store up energy for Saturday fun. Some sushi, a good or bad movie and company are best!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am addicted to lolcats.
You should message me if
You're brave, can laugh even when the humor is a bit demented and want someone around who will make the day a little better.
