I believe I'm a good father, a good friend and generally kind. Within me the idealist and cynic wrestle for control, but so far the idealist seems to be the big dog. I have a long and fascinating history of mental interestingness which I won't go into here, but I'll be happy to bore you with upon request.
I have many opinions, most of which I'm ready to be challenged on and I love nothing better than a frank discussion; However I have a handful of opinions that I hold very strong and someone would have to bring a quite new perspective to the debate to make me budge on those.
- Girls and boys should have equal rights.
- Gay love should be equal to straight love in all respects.
- The penal system should be rehabilitative rather than punitive.
- Social democracy is a better alternative than market capitalism.
If you're against gay marriage or you believe that the death penalty is a great idea; Welp, I'm not saying don't message me, but we'll have some shit to straighten out before we move on.
I self-identify as a multi-faceted nerd. I love programming, neuroscience, astronomy, obscure and not-so-obscure pop culture, words, pictures, curiosa, movies, games, comics, books, music and pretty much anything that tickles my "Oooh! Interesting!"-bone.
I'm highly suspicious of religion. I truly believe the world would be better off without organized religion of any kind, and I especially want the church to stay the fuck out of politics. Have you really read this far? The secret code word is swordfish. It's always swordfish. If it was up to me it would be inadmissible to present any political argument on the grounds of religion.
Also: I am intrigued by your ideas and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

I guess I don't really have a lot of secrets. Try me.
I jest. Hook up. I'm easy.
