My self-summary
As you might have guessed from my name, I neither take myself nor OkCupid too serious. So why am I here? I guess I secretly hope to meet some new and interesting people here that I would never meet otherwise. And maybe even more :-)

Apart from that I like to think of myself as an open-minded (I suspect that's not the first place on okc where you read this word ;-)) and empathetic person. I have many interests but if I had to name one single topic then that would most likely be (natural) sciences. However, I tend to become more and more interested in politics and related topics these days.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I'm doing a PhD which takes up pretty much of my time. But there's (still? ;-)) a life besides that.
I’m really good at
I'm quite good at listening to others and giving them advice which doesn't work for myself though...
The first things people usually notice about me
Puh, I'd like to know that! Some might notice my deep voice, others maybe my laughter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
That's clearly changing, but at the moment:

books: recently started to read Tolstoi ("Anna Karenina") for the first time and I like it so far; Max Frisch, Hermann Hesse, Ray Bradbury,... and sometimes "real adventure" books (e.g. Tim Cope's "On the Trail of Genghis Khan", just impressive) or biographies

movies: lately, I haven't been so much into movies (even though I like them), so I skip them for the moment.

shows: don't watch shows recently, but I liked Community, Happy Endings, Danger 5 (ok, you have to like the humour); admittedly I liked the concept of HIMYM but a few seasons less would have been better (like it's often the case...)

music: Audioslave, Rage Against The Machine, Godsmack, Queens Of The Stone Age, White Stripes, System of A Down, Sentenced, Steven Wilson, Tori Amos, Metallica, Tool, Rise Against,... recently, also some classical music (Richter!) or stuff like Aloe Blacc
The six things I could never do without
Apart from the "obvious" things (like water, food, sleeping...):
friends and family
music (to keep me sane)
sports/motion in general
discovering new things
probably balls (not what you think, but for juggling for which I often don't find the time these days :-/)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, my studies (science in general), philosophy, our planet... And since we're on OkCupid: Can big data really lead to new friends or even love? ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
That really depends on my mood - in that sense there is no typical Friday night. Unfortunately, working weeks these days are a bit strenuous so I rather take it slow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm on OkCupid. (hihi)
You should message me if
You want to get to know me better, want to discuss "Gott und die Welt" (I just couldn't replace this German phrase :-)), go for a hike, on a concert,...
