My self-summary
I'll just put down some facts that do nothing to really define me (even if they are true), and you get to be like Nicolas Cage's character in that movie where he uses clues found in inexplicable places to find money or patriotism or whatever. Here goes:

I wear shorts year-round, in all weather.

I live as an Atheist, if you put a gun to my head (why would you do that?) I'd say I'm Agnostic but at the end of the day I found that the word Apatheist describes me very well.

I don't seek out museums or art on my own, but I enjoy experiencing them through the lens of people who do.

I have a degree (from a school ranked 248 out of 256 liberal arts schools) in philosophy and religious studies (you're not surprised.)

I love parentheses (again you don't seem surprised)

I try to find humor in all things, this has in the past gotten me in trouble, but I just think that's funny.

I have a blue-eyed border collie named Lady that is my life.

So... yeah... that's a lot of "I" statements. Did you crack the code? There's not really a code.
What I’m doing with my life
I've worked with iPods, robots, modular electronics and now I'm bridging the digital divide... Long winded way of saying "I work in tech" but hopefully also a little more interesting.
I’m really good at
Almost anything I put my mind to, but I can't say I'm great at anything. Jack of all trades, master of none (people tend to forget the second half of that saying.)

Complimenting you on your nails (when they look good).
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a big smile, I laugh all the time and I'm loud... so loud.

Most recently a friend just described me as "Clifford the big red dog, but in real life"... I don't know if that's good or not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Watership Down, Kafka on the Shore, The Stranger, Invitation to a Beheading, Brave New World, The Little Prince. I spent three years reading all 14 of the "Wheel of Time" books, get at me for a synopsis.

(Comic) Books: The Walking Dead, Preacher, The Boys, Y: the Last Man, and an assortment of Batman comics.

Movies: Big Fish, Jurassic Park, Children of Men, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Memento, Reservoir Dogs, Shaun of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy. Get Out and Moonlight most recently.

Shows: Futurama, The Twilight Zone, Breaking Bad (and also Better Call Saul), Adventure Time, Steven Universe, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Quantum Leap, Parenthood, Summer Heights High, Extras, Being Human (British version), South Park, Terriers, Red Dwarf, Black Mirror, Fargo.

Music: Chance the Rapper, Pink Floyd, Sia, Calvin Harris, Against Me!, Presidents of the United States, Junior Senior, Weird Al, Ween, Pixies, FKA Twigs, Summer Camp, PHOX, Chance the Rapper, RJD2. Oh and Chance the Rapper (I think he's wonderful)

Food: I have a gutter pallet and I love Mexican food and pizza. I've more recently been on the biggest ramen kick of my (or anyone's) life.

I know there are more, these are just off the top of my head and I feel like represent the breadth of my tastes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

I just spend a lot of time thinking.

The nature of time, space, time-space, causality, causation, society, justice, social justice, the macro and the micro... If you can indulge me in conversations about any and all of these things I think we'll get along.

By the way, don't you hate that "a lot" is two words? Feel like we've all been lied to or something. We don't say it like it's two words.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm probably out at a bar with my friends (even though I don't drink, bars are some of my favorite places) or at an apartment party, or maybe just hanging in and catching up on the never-ending list of things I want to watch or read or play.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My name is Patrick, I'm tired of forgetting to introduce myself in messages.

Also if you've caught me looking at your profile several times and not saying anything, I'm probably trying to craft a unique and witty first message, and deleting several drafts. Please feel free to message first.
You should message me if
you want to ride bikes.
you feel like having a good debate (pick a topic, you can even pick which side I'm on.)
you want to have deep conversations about heavy subjects.
you think that we would get along.
you cracked the code (no but seriously there isn't one)

If I messaged you first, even if you're not interested, a polite decline is nice (even a not so polite decline normally makes for a funny story later).
The two of us
