My self-summary
As you read the following, my sincerest hope is that you could find it in yourself to grant me the presumption of truth :)

Oh and if you don't like lot's of words or don't care for the pursuit of clarity, feel free to skim, there's a lot here lol At the very least I hope you can appreciate the effort :p

- I try to be a gentleman. I open/hold the door for people, say please, thank you and ma'am, not all the time, but certainly when I have the presence of mind to do so
- Above all else, I believe in living a good and moral life
- I treat everyone the way that I would like to be treated and expect the same....and if you want people to steal from you or stab you....please feel free to hit the back/delete button :)
- I'm a hard worker. I've earned all that I have from the sweat of my brow and the firing of my neurons
- I'm pathologically honest
- Optimist by choice, realist by nature and pessimist by necessity. Nothing is ever black and white, so my outlook on things tends to reflect the circumstances
- I don't do things expecting something in return
- I dont draw, paint or sculpt, but I consider myself a creative person, in my own way
- I'm usually up for anything except robbing liquor stores and snatching purses (see item above)
- I never went to college but I think I've done well for myself and will continue to improve myself despite the fact, I self educate :)
- It doesn't matter to me how much you make as long as you have a drive to improve yourself
- I believe that the only things aside from certain anatomical requisites to being a man are independence and decency....most other things just seem like macho bs to me
- I would like to meet someone who is open, honest and anything but judgmental
- I'm honest with myself and can/will openly admit my flaws
- I despise arrogance because I think society can function just fine without it
- When it comes to humor, I don't believe in comfort zones because I think humor should be boundless
- I love science and technology and learning how the universe came into being and how it continues to function (bonus points if you know who Carl Sagan is)
- I believe in living ones life without regrets, not because you wish to absolve yourself of all the poor decisions you've made, but because you've made your decisions wisely

I try not to describe myself in absolute terms. I've spent enough time with myself to know....myself and I can say with all honesty and humility that I do like who I've become. I think I'm awesome and my hope is that you will too, but I don't feel the need to tell you that I'm "wicked awesome" or "bloody brilliant". Everyone has a dictionary and can easily compile a list of flattering words, so I won't bother to do that. I try to be honest with myself, but I'm clearly biased lol. Really though, all that is for you to decide. Just make sure you know at least something about me before pretending you know everything about me :)

I recently came across this and found it to be pretty damn accurate. I've also made it a point to ask close friends who know me well to pick one of the 16 different roles that they feel best describes me without telling them which I think I am. More often than not, they choose this one, so I'd say this best describes me :)

So if you want to know more about the intangibles that make me.....me then this is a good place to start :)

And for what it's worth, I'm quite a lot like INTPs as well, which is the second most chosen type among friends. There are very few things described that don't apply.

Favorite Quotes:
"What screws us up the most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be" - Someone brilliant

"Science, because figuring things out is always better than making shit up." - ?

"We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams." - Willy Wonka

"It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." - Carl Sagan

"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." - Carl Sagan (bonus points if you know what he means :) )

"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do" - Apple Inc. circa 1997

"I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishments after I'm dead. " -Kurt Vonnegut
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm working at a small company in Long Beach and we specialize in making 3D models of automobiles for video games and advertisements. I've been there for about 10 years and I love what I do. Who wouldn't like checking out sweet cars all day?

In my spare time I'm either out with friends, learning something new, enjoying a good movie (sometimes a bad one), or catching up on a good TV show.

The main thing that keeps me busy is a 6ft tall 3d printer that I designed and built. Its still not ready for primetime but I'm steadily solving problems and inching closer to glory! Once its reliable enough I want to start my own business, but you can ask about that if you're inclined to do so lol
I’m really good at
Fixing stuff, making people laugh...even if they didn't want to, seeing things from different perspectives, run on sentences, listening, explaining things/communicating, ruining movies for people who haven't seen them yet, sleeping, computer stuff (yes, I can probably fix your computer), singing Black Keys in my car, and a bunch of other stuff....
The first things people usually notice about me
...that I'm not wearing any pants
The six things I could never do without
1-6: Carbon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If someone discovers the theory of relativity without ever having heard of Einstein, are they still as brilliant?

--------------------------------------------

How to survive in a post apocalyptic zombie world. Who hasn't thought of it these days?!

--------------------------------------------

What a perfect world would look like.....and not in a cutesy "It's fun to think about" kind of way lol. It has nothing to do with everyone having a mansion or cotton candy growing on trees.

I'm willing to bet you dinner or at least a coffee that we can easily spend 3 hours discussing this and not even scratch the surface. And, if you think this is silly/impossible/super lame, chances are that's a good thing, for me at least. I don't want to meet someone who doesn't at least ponder what this world would be like and wish to help humanity get there, on some level. I want to meet someone who like me, strives to be one of the crazy people (see quotes :) )
You should message me if
If Carl Sagan would approve of you :)

You're down to earth and modest.

Wanting to help other people you don't know has at least crossed your mind is always a plus. I don't expect everyone to volunteer at a soup kitchen or anything, but those who have a general concern for others well being tend to treat people in their every day lives with more dignity and respect.

If you don't rush to judgement but instead seek a deeper understanding of the people and world around you.

You like to have nice dinners out but are completely content with a night in with a special someone.
