My self-summary
I'm a pretty unique person. It takes a certain type to be compatible with me, so I'll just state upfront that if what you're looking for is well within the mainstream, "it ain't me, babe," to quote a Bob Dylan song. My particular brand of quirk is pretty hard to describe though. I might pass for being normal for a little while. Hopefully, this profile will disabuse you of that notion. ;)

I'm not religious. I lean pretty far left when it comes to social issues like gay marriage or trans inclusiveness. (For instance, you won't hear me use pejorative words for homosexual people or homosexuality even those are very common.)

I'm not really shy, but I'm not super outgoing either.

I've got a very sarcastic sense of humor, self-depreciating where appropriate, and often delivered deadpan.

I have zero interest in any sports. I play a moderate amount of video games. Sometimes I go for months without playing, sometimes I play one or two times a week for several weeks.

I like science. I like learning about things in general.

I fool around a bit on the guitar, but I wouldn't say I play great. And you don't want hear me accompany it with singing!

I don't drink often, never smoked cigarettes. Smoked marijuana when I was younger, but don't anymore.

I don't believe in astrology or any of those kinda things.

If there's one thing I hate, it's a rush to judgment. I love thinking things over carefully and exploring different angles.

Don't worry about messaging me if it looks like I haven't been online in a while; I'll get your message in my email.
What I’m doing with my life
Boring part: I'm a non-traditional student, going back to school to major in electrical engineering. Did you know that Euler's Formula allows you convert sinusoidal oscillations in the time domain to equations using imaginary numbers in the frequency domain? Well now you do!

Interesting part: I'm seeing how long I can grow my beard just for fun. Boy howdy, I do get a lot of comments about it. I can't leave the house without being told that it's, "awesome." As you can see, ladies, I'm a man who knows how to set ambitious goals for myself, goals that will challenge me to achieve the level of excellence that I know I am destined for.

Also, how's your sarcasm detector working? Need a calibration?


In a more serious attempt at self-improvement, I've taken up strength training with barbells recently, and, surprisingly enough, I actually enjoy it. I've also added yoga and jogging to the mix as well to round it out.

Aside from that, what am I doing with my life? At my age, growing older by the minute, I guess. I'm trying to write a novel. My expectations about how well it will turn are realistic, but I'm giving it my all. I really enjoy the process of writing, imagining the world, the details, the connections, the characters. Bringing it all to life in words is a slow process, but rewarding. And if (or perhaps more likely, when) the novel doesn't turn out to be grade A material, ready for publication, I'll take what I've learned from the experience and start again. (And, yes, it's sci fi. I'm a dork, I know.)
I’m really good at
Observing what others miss. Offering unconsidered perspectives.

Pretty good at computers too. Used to get paid to fix 'em. Have built a number of them myself. So yeah, tech support, every woman's dream, right?
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard is a different color than my hair. No, really. It's amazing how many people will tell me that. You get a gold star for observing the obvious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Dostoevsky, Goethe, Bertrand Russell. And sitting on my nightstand as I write this are: Naked Lunch, Godel Escher Bach, Don Quixote, Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, The Consolation of Philosophy by Boethius, Anna Karenina, and the Brothers Karamazov. What a pile! UPDATE: Just read through the entire ASoIaF series. Liked it quite a lot.
Movies: Blade Runner and here's why, Throne of Blood, Barry Lyndon
Shows: Babylon 5, Star Trek
Music: Progressive Rock, Electronic, Classical, and much more
Games: Mass Effect. Seriously, this like my favorite thing in the history of ever. If you're looking for a way to my heart, it's through Mass Effect.
Food: The spicier the better. Asian food is a favorite.
Six things I could never do without
Six? A person can live without a whole lot of things, but they can't bring themselves to get out of bed without meaning. An unthinking sponge can live without meaning, but human beings cannot. As long as things are meaningful, I can do much with little.

OK, so that's the corny "Viktor Frankl" answer, but you wanted a list, no? Here, knock yourself out:

A source of easily accessible knowledge like the internet.
The freedom to be strange
A Western standard of living

Wow, I sound really corny. :/
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The plots and characters concerned in the story I'm writing, but you probably already guessed that, because you're such a smart cookie.

I spend a lot of time thinking about the future, on a grand not personal scale. What will it bring? I often ask myself, "why is there something, rather than nothing?" And that question always manages to fill me with awe.

Asked myself this question the other day on Tumblr. Cause I'm like an intellectual or something. *puffs his pipe, adjusts his tweed jacket, and nods condescendingly*
On a typical Friday night I am
Who knows? Going out with friends, staying in to write, altering the very fabric of space and time with forbidden blood magic. The usual.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I admitted it in this public space, then it wouldn't be private anymore. I call BS on this one.
You should message me if
You're looking for somebody WAY, WAY out of the mainstream. I'm not the vanilla experience, and probably couldn't fake my way through trying to pretend I am if I had to.

You can take that as a selling point or a warning based on your taste.

Or, you know, message me if you're a Time Lord or velociraptor or something cool like that.

You've just read a lot about me, tell me about you.
The two of us
