My self-summary
Note: In case you're reading this from quickmatch, my username is iamstickfigure. I don't understand why they don't show the usernames there, so it just occured to me to just say it here in the self-summary.

I'm a huge fan of stand-up comedy, horror movies, games, and YouTube.

I am a programmer by profession and by hobby. I've messed around with coding since middle school. I've made all sorts of random stuff (basically whatever seemed interesting to me at the time).

I got in to chess awhile back. It's been awhile since I've played. I was recently introduced to Go (Baduk), but I'm pretty bad at it currently. Perhaps I'll improve. My KGS username is iamstickfigure. I suppose it's been awhile since I've played that as well.

I haven't been playing video games very much at all lately. I do enjoy playing games, but I like to watch people play games more than actually play them.

I am in a polyamorous relationship at the moment (With nocturnal_raptur).
Feel free to ask about it. Don't be shy. :-P
What I’m doing with my life
I was recently in Austin for a Summer software development internship. Now I'm back in Houston at UH.

During the school semesters, I'm studying Computer Science in college. I've kind of on-and-off worked at office supply stores. I also freelance with various computer/tablet related odd jobs.

Between/after classes, I usually hang out at UH's LGBT resource center where I've met the large majority of my friends.
I’m really good at
Communication, cuddling,... Cartesian coordinates... Uhh...

Crosswords? Cannibalism?
Castrating cassowaries, calibrating can-openers, conjugating croissants.

Ok that was dumb. Just the first three things are true on that list.
Also alliteration.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard I guess. Depending on the state of things, my beard is sometimes trimmed like in my profile picture, or it's huge and bushy.
Lately I've been usually trimming it as it is shown in my profile picture.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: DAT Politics, The Morning Benders, Balkan Beat Box, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Twink (Pretty much everything except country music)...
[Edit]: Actually, it turns out that it's only nashville country music that I can't stand. It's just that nashville is more common.
I used to get a lot of my music from a recently shut-down radio station KTRU 91.7, the Rice University radio station. I enjoyed the eclectic nature of their programming. In fact, I even attended the protest rallies to help the station stay afloat, but it was unsuccessful. What a shame. :-(

Books: A Clockwork Orange, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus, A Brief History of Time, Eugene Mirman's A Will to Whatevs, The World of Karl Pilkington, ... (I love the insane ramblings of Karl Pilkington. XD)

Movies: Watchmen, The Thing, The Fourth Kind, Orphan, Kick-Ass, Super, Pandorum, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Catacombs, I Spit on your Grave, Leprechaun, Paranormal Activity, The Last Exorcism, Seed, Dawn of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, A Serbian Film (Huge horror fan)...
I also love weird, badly made, or campy movies. I get a real kick out of stuff like that. I think Troll 2 is FANTASTIC!

Shows: Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, South Park, Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Ugly Americans, The Ricky Gervais Show, The YoGPoD, some Science Channel/Discovery Channel programs (Especially documentaries), Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, (I'm also a huge fan of stand-up comedy)...

YouTube: SSoHPKC, Ethoslab, Zisteau, SethBling, Numberphile, SixtySymbols, PsychicPebbles, OneyNG
(I have quite a few subscriptions)...

Games: Minecraft, Portal, Worms Revolution, Dark Souls, Half-life series, Speedrunners, Garry's mod, Antichamber, Perspective (Mainly PC Games)...
The six things I could never do without
My Laptop,
My Friends,
The Internet,
and two other generic things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It's interesting how "lol" seems to have evolved away from meaning that something is necessarily funny. It's often used to express empathy, but I usually use it to convey tone.

Also, I love to discuss grand-scale hypothetical scenarios. Lol. I've come up with some lovely thought experiments while doing this.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
Just do it. Lol. I often find myself unsure what to message people sometimes because so many people abhor messages like "Hey, what's up?" so I never know what to say to someone. I guess I'm just bad at messaging people. XD.
But yeah, I won't be picky about what you say. Lol. Just send what's on your mind or just say "Hey."

Or if you are just interested to know more about me. If there's something I didn't cover, ask away. I will not ignore your message regardless of what it is.
