Let me start by stating: No, I will not cheat on my wife with you because if I did my girlfriend would get very angry with me.
I'm a geek G, double-E, K, geek. I like role playing games, hardcore science, reading, and motorcycles. Currently I'm a grad student in experimental physics at FSU and I'm working in the field of condensed matter physics aka electron abuse for fun and profit. To be more precise, the interface between electrodynamics and quantum physics. Or to be more glib, the part of physics that gives you bigger hard drives every year the part that is working tirelessly to make Moore's law come true every 18 months. As much as I love to joke about working on a death ray in the lab or some other diabolic creation to allow me to unleash my terrible will upon the world and make them "Rue the day" Rue! I really like that word its very fun to say. I work in a part of physics that does not bring rays or bombs we bring joy! We are making your phone fancier, your tv bigger, and seeing to it you can have an ever increasing stock of porn on your hard drive. I'm a condensed matter physicist and I help make the world a better place.
And woe onto to him that fuck with science in my presence. I'm partisan about science I believe the universe is driven by physical law and that all of creation can be comprehended. I'm an atheist when it comes to religion but not a prostelitizing one like Dawkins. There is no point in trying to prove a negative in my mind so I'm not going to bother. People are free to believe whatever they like as long as they keep their religion out of my science. If you want to believe god created all life on earth I'm fine with that but if you want to tell me that evolution therefore is invalid because it contradicts a document that at best should be taken allegorical we are going to have words. For that matter if you want to tell me that all of my colleagues in meteorolgy are wrong about global warming because it doesn't meet your political ideology we are going to have words and some of those words may number four letters and include f,k,s,t. I may even say insulting things about your shoes if you get me worked up enough even though I pride myself on being able to argue calmly about things I'm passionate about. Though if you try to claim aliens built the pyramids I will lose my shit. This has been established on a number of previous occasions. If you actually believe this I feel sorry for you and am deeply frustrated you would take this accomplishment away from the human race and are taking for granite all of the blood, sweat, and genius spent on those magnificent and foolish hunks of stone. We humans did this and we should be proud of our great works! To give those great accomplishment to some nameless alien overlords makes me want to throw fists and I'm quite arguably the least violent person I know.
If you haven't guessed already I love a good argument. I will given a willing and eager partner argue about any subject I can speak with any knowledge of. Being that I'm a socialist, transhumanist, polyamorous, I love debating the merits of SF and fantasy literature, movies in said genres, and think the Matrix movies worked much better as fashion adds than SF. Please for the love of god when you make a movie about solipsism through computer slavery make the reason the computers are doing it at least follow the laws of thermo-fucking-dynamics. Yes the clothes are pretty, yes the action is fast paced, and yes the camera work was a revolution. But humans as batteries what the hell man!?! Also I'm a recovering curmudgeon and have to watch out for the urge to dislike something just because everyone else likes it.
Disclaimer: It has been pointed out to me by a number of my friends that in person I am no where near as angry as my profile her implies. Hopefully this will not dissuade you the reader from contacting me.
I am geeky, intellectual, and perverse
Also there are perks:
I work with wonderful and intelligent people and have the pleasure of doing a job where results are more important than appearances. Where as long as I spend 80 hours a week in the lab no one cares what 80 hours those are. Ok maybe not quite 80.
I get to know the secrets of the fucking universe! Even if the bulk of the people out there are uninterested I still get to reach up under the skirt of the universe and know its hidden naughty bits.
Wow this sat for a while unfinished.
Its always tricky on where to start with this kind of thing but the main revelation I spend my life experiencing over and over again is the way simplicity can give birth to complexity. To give an example there is a classic problem in math called the three body problem... and no it has nothing to do with how to get two of your classmates in bed with you thats a different problem. Its in description much simpler than that. We start with a completely empty space going out to infinity in any direction to give us the most simple of backdrops. Into this void we add three bodies, they can be planets, your favorite fruits, idealized platonic shapes its all good. To make it even easier lets even allow these bodies to freely pass through each other the only characteristic we will give them other than location is mass. Now let go of them and let them interact only through mutual attraction.
This problem seems to be unsolvable except for a number of very specific initial conditions.
When I saw this problem demonstrated to me in a math class it boggled my mind and filled me with wonder as suddenly the world could be both known and unknowable. We can know all the rules and still be surprised by its behavior! Suddenly everything was filled with wonder for me. Hell it still is when I take a moment to look.
More to come... lets hope its quicker than the two months it took me to get around posting the above.
You have something you'd like to teach me! I'm a sucker for that.
You are local and are looking for people to go out to movies and other social type activities with. Currently I'm trying to rebuild my social life after mainlining a bit too much science.
You are okay with the fact that I'm polyamorous and married.
