∞ Endless Boulevard, Vast Multiverse.

The world is full of treasure and hidden secrets, intangible or tangible alike. I am always seeking these.

Somewhere outside of mainstream and rebellion, simply enjoying existence.
What I’m doing with my life
Among other things, tutoring. I'm also open to something new if it's related to the entrepreneurial and scientific passions I've cultivated as a natural result of my curiosity.

Recently I've been:
Bowling - which makes me think, how DID they set the pins by hand?

Removing water chestnuts from the Mystic River, of which there are many. Thanks, Harvard botanist who imported them.

Accepting free baseball tickets no one else was using (season tickets, I assume) and yelling out "sports!" whenever something happens.
I’m really good at
Attempting to be resourceful, either making the most of what I have or acquiring new things. I occasionally take pride in unconventional accomplishments.

Playing with pyrotechnics, including accidentally making fireworks. (Wasn't actually too crazy, but the popping noise was unexpected.) Recently: made a fiery cake for a friend's custom-metalworking project to slice in half.

Inventing spicy pulled pork pizza. Did you know the sauce doesn't always have to be plain tomato? That's the future, dudes.

Singing the 90s Mentos theme song whenever someone says "fresh".
The first things people usually notice about me
For lack of a better term, I flow. Overcoats and scarves when the weather allows, plus fast walking speed, combine into something like a slow blur.

So far I've been hard to faze (unless I'm made to laugh, which thankfully is pretty often) while also not shying away from most to all topics of conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
♫ Reggae, jazz, techno/electronic/stuff without lyrics. It all makes for fantastic background music. Try listening to smooth jazz 25-100% faster than usual, it can be very entertaining.

~ Pasta, pizza, chocolate. Pulled pork sandwiches, cheese-steaks, soft pretzels.

The description-defying Old Spice commercials of the last few years.

Stuart Little, The Phantom Tollbooth, any nonfiction that makes the mundane interesting.
The six things I could never do without
Real:
Love, freedom, amusement, knowledge and wisdom, prudence with money/resources, and something I can only put into words as "the amazing feeling of just existing."

Not real:
A bullet that fires guns, the ability to kick things and have them be on fire, a picture of myself from 10 years before I was born.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A world with more corrupted politicians, in the sense of 'software error' instead of 'self-serving and greedy'. Badly programmed presidents would be hilarious, yet unfortunate.

"The failure mode of clever is asshole", a phrase which makes the world a lot more understandable.

"There is time to be lost", initially used in a silly internet video but is actually quite profound. Similarly, wisdom in strange or accidental places.
On a typical Friday night I am
Keanu Reeves.

Woah.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am extraordinarily anti-bullshit (username is relevant) with the main exception of deploying it to break through other bullshit. There are so many things I wish the world would open-mindedly discuss more often instead of forcing outdated methodologies on everyone.

It would be great if I could do a better Nigel Thornberry impression.
I also want to be able to make the static sound generated by old television sets, because I've begun to find it hilarious.
You should message me if
You like to explore, whatever that means to you.

If you want to play a randomly generated game of TEXT ADVENTURE™,
I am experienced in generating surrealist landscapes with only a moment's notice.
