My self-summary
Let's have a platonic relationship. That is, I want to tie you up in a cave and communicate with you through hand shadow puppets only.

Self summaries are bit tricky but here's an attempt:
Interesting if half baked ideas, nihilistic compassion, off-the-wall silliness, blunt honesty only partially softened when wrapped in truth-laden jokes.

I like to believe that my awkward moments are endearingly adorkable and definitely not ever cringey whaat that's impossible (cringy? is there an agreed upon spelling?)

2016 has overall been a clusterfuck of sad and stressful shit. I struggle to not fall off the mental health tightrope at times. It doesn't define me but it is a thing that happens, it's probably better to mention it early
What I’m doing with my life
My main project right now is learning about thinking techniques for banishing unwanted feelings, dissolving procrastination, unpacking and rewriting subconscious beliefs... basically fixing the brain bugs that hold us back. I'm just starting this journey, and sometimes it feels like DIY brain surgery, where my surgical tool is a sword. And the sword is covered in bacteria.

I'm pretty much a wantrepreneur. All I've wanted is success and meaningful work outside of the mainstream hamster wheels, but I'm still trying to figure out how to make that happen.
I’m really good at
Pseudo intellectual smart assery to pretend I'm clever, faking modesty to pretend I'm humble, faking faking modesty to pretend I have confidence, lying (not really I'm lying), ironic meta, weird self referencing chains of sentence fragments, stretching jokes too far.

ok ok real answer lately I've been pouring a decent amount of time into making songs with a program called LMMS and they're starting to not suck which is pretty gratifying
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Science audiobooks I can listen to and reclaim the time spent sitting in traffic or doing boring shit. Thinking Fast and Slow was pretty good. I don't get through whole books often

My favorite shows are the ones I consider quality comedies with sharp writing, examples are:
It's Always Sunny, Archer, Community, Arrested Development, Party Down

Food: seared tuna (mmm delicious heavy metals)
I also worked out a way to make ice cream that's almost nutritionally complete. Most people would improve their diets by eating it every day, and it tastes like dark chocolate with an undertone of nuts
The six things I could never do without
Wine and tits

(5 tits so that the math checks out)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Exactly how I want(ed) to phrase something
Imagined futures, remembered pasts.
Stupid scenarios or premises
Wordplays (If Microsoft had a statistical supercomputer AI in China for handling search queries, it would be An Asian Bayesian Beijing Bing Being)

Brains, biology, psychology (it's too fun to apply in an armchair anecdotal way, especially through the lens of evolution), dynamics in a society, living well (both how and what does it even mean)

Is much of our fiction consumption to the subconscious end of filling empty dunbar slots?

Do chess knights know they don't move in straight lines? Or are they otherworldly beast fighters with a totally alien sense of geometry?

This section wants badly to expand out of control. I am a thinking addict.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm probably being anti social. Working out alone, reading internet, or maybe drunken philosophizing over the phone. I barely drink anymore but I've had phenibut and it's kinda the same thing without the dehydration, impairment, or ruined sleep.

You should message me if
If you have a high enemy percentage with me and want to challenge me to a duel (if you're male) or offer angry hate sex (if you're a female)


If you're analytical or at least have tolerance for some sarcasm and occasional philosophical rants

If you value cool conversations. I like silly ones, intellectual ones, real ones, vulnerable ones where people connect.... let's not stay stuck in the box of boring chit chat, essentially

Honestly if you're still reading that alone makes you cool in my book
