My self-summary
Wow, you put up a picture and suddenly you get more attention than... well, you get a lot of visits. Guess I should try to make my profile better.

New to the area, recovering from almost seven years in the city that never sleeps. I like to sleep. So it wasn't a good fit. Went there for one of those jobs that takes all of your time but pays you a lot. Well, enough to pay back the loans you had to take out to qualify for the job. After a few years at that job, I got another that was supposed to enable me to get whatever job I wanted at the end of the year term. That didn't happen. At least the loans are gone. So now we'll try to get into academia or government... other suggestions and opportunities are welcome. I'd also make a great house husband - I can cook, clean, design, stay really fit so you can show me off, etc.

I don't swear, use tobacco, or drink, and don't believe that a crowd of a hundred thousand in a small space is a good thing. I cross streets at the cross-walk when the walk signal is in my direction (its only fair - you want cars to stop for red lights, why shouldn't you be expected to stop at a red hand?).

Oh, and I do not put pictures of my face online. Even on Facebook. I have several reasons. Yes, it is completely fair for me to not have one up while you do - you chose to put one up, I did not make you. Personally, I would rather not have the crazy people be able to recognize me on the subway, and would rather not have this website own my likeness. If we're just going to be friends, then what does it matter what I look like? If we're going to be more than friends, then we can discuss. I WILL SEND ONE TO YOU IF AND WHEN WE SET UP A MEETING. If you ask before then, I will assume you have not read this and will be disappointed. Plus by not reading this you will have missed out on my witty banter.

Now, for orientation/who/what I am into. First, what do all of those orientation options even mean? I don't know, but I like the option "I don't want to be seen by straight people." If we had such options in real life.... So what am I? If we like each other, who cares what the label is. A rose by any other name... aww, so sweet, he can quote Shakespeare. And is it ironic that there are like 20 different sexual orientations to choose from, but the only pets you can have are dogs and cats. Putting that aside for a moment, if you could be an Abercrombie model from the early 2000s, hit me up.

And hello people from around the world! I'm not sure why you are messaging me, but tell me about life in your country. How do you view the United States? What do you think about the populist surge claiming power in Western governments?

Finally, lets try for something more than "you're profile is interesting." Great, glad I could provide amusement. Now give me something of substance to work with.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Trying to figure out the next steps. Trying not to get into trouble. Occasionally succeeding.

I'm regularly told that I should do stand-up comedy. Probably would be good at it.
I’m really good at
Debate, analyzing, finding dress shirts for under $20. In fact, I had to dress up for work (a/k/a "grown-up costume") and I realized that everything I was wearing was either a gift or had been purchased on sale. It made me very happy.

Otherwise, sitting on my couch.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm raising my hand to ask permission to speak. Makes it easier when they all stop to look at me - might think I'm crazy, but at least they're listening. Or maybe the cowboy hat on my desk. The desk at work. (Being "professional" is dumb). Or that I have Batman hanging off my wall.

Also, a very dry sense of humor/wit, precise use of language and critical (as in objective analysis) opinions as to everything. I don't really have one of those filters, so if you ask me what I think about something, I'm going to tell you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well written things. I don't care what the critics say - don't tell me what a masterpiece is - if I like it then it is good. For example, The Fountainhead, Catch-22, Dogma, and The West Wing are great; Jane Eyre... not so much. Mr. Rochester can grow up.

I don't read for pleasure much since all I do is read all day. I wish I read more because I feel like there is a lot I do not know. I tend to like history and some biographies. I read some sci-fi fiction in Spanish to try to study.

I have watched the entire series of the following: The West Wing, MacGyver, The A-Team, Knight Rider, Highlander, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Merlin, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Ultimate Justice League and every other similar animated series on Netflix, every Transformers series on Netflix, Huntik, Troll Hunters, Dark Matter... and others I can't recall right now. But you can probably see the pattern. Currently working on The Originals, The Librarians, Legends of Tomorrow, The Iron Fist, and Supergirl. Again, patterns... The Great British Baking Show, Escape to the Country, and another British house building show are/were great.
Six things I could never do without
Air, Water, Food... see, I'm very literal. Also very analytical.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You. Just kidding, that'd be really creepy.

Life. Work. What's for dinner. Why there are no flying cars or hoverboards yet. Where are all the famous people. Where are all the people with super powers (including mutants). How much longer until we get warp speed and the Vulcans contact us. Why can't I be a model with an Abercrombie body (still have the teenage longing for physical perfection). How to save the world, and why I put the weight of the world on my shoulders.

Not sure that list is any less creepy.
On a typical Friday night I am
On one of these stupid websites chatting with people while doing work. Lame answer? Hence the profile so I can meet you and have something else to do!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a profile on this site.
You should message me if
You want to chat aimlessly while I'm doing work, or you know where the famous people are. Or you are a famous person! Or you have other suggestions as to fun activities.

I DO NOT DRINK COFFEE so don't suggest that. If you do, I'll assume you haven't read this and will be very disappointed. And tea is stupid too. Sitting around a small table drinking hot flavored water that cost $5 - boring.

Additionally, if you ever use the word "gurl," "boi," or if you have multiple photographs of yourself and alcohol on your Facebook profile (excepting weddings, graduation celebrations, family dinners, religious holiday gatherings, or similar special events), then we likely will not be a match. If getting very drunk is more than a once-a-year occurrence, then no.

I'm going to go watch my cartoons now. I mean real cartoons, not C-Span. Unless it is Wednesday, then I am watching Prime Minister's Questions.
