7.5 out of 10 on the Nerdish scale.
Actually at the moment I am doing a degree in Maths and Statistics with the Open University. Largely to keep my mind busy. Did I mention the nerd word?
I also have a pretty broad general knowledge.
Opening tight jars.

○A computer of some kind.

○Laughing at myself
It is ironic that most things people say are ironic are not ironic.
The observable universe is about 91 billion light years in diameter. It is terrifying to think we are all alone and the only intelligence in that horrific empty vastness.
It is even scarier to think that we are not alone.
Can we avert the 6th mass extinction?
What was going through the mind of the Easter Islander (Rapa Nui) who cut down the last tree?
How did I end up here and did I make bad choices or good ones? Have I made the best of the bad hand or the worst of a good one. Luckily so few can see my internal dialogue but what if everyone else was as crippled with self doubt, they just cant admit it. Or may be you are just over thinking, that kind of thing is something we all probably spent a lot of time thinking about but should not go into a box about what you spend time thinking about because in the modern world that is an overshare, you are supposed to be making yourself appear profound not honest..... or is honest attractive? The paradox of internet "tell us about yourself" do people really really want to know?
Your are idiosyncratic and happy to share time with someone who sees things for a very different angle.
