My self-summary
Someone once described me as a nerd disguised as a normal man. I'm friendly, calm, intelligent, and humorous in some witty and sarcastic way. I'm a scientist working with cyber technology and computer security.
What I’m doing with my life
I like discovering new things. Travel through Siberia, diving in the Red Sea, walking through the old streets of Jerusalem, road trips in the US, motorcycling around small islands. Old ruins, historical places, endless views and abandoned old roads.

Complicated things are fun. I'm not into technological toys like smart phones and similar gadgets; my mobile phone sees very little use. It is more the complex systems and patterns that I find interesting. Some sort of artistic admiration about how everything is connected. I have no problems learning complicated rules of board games.
I’m really good at
Cooking spicy food, being silly, playing with my dog, identifying birds, making computers work and inspecting network packets.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I never wear my clothes inside out.

Some woman once said that I look like a farmer's boy the first time she saw me. She obviously had very sharp eyes, since it is true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I own and read many fantasy and science fiction books, but I'm not really an avid reader. More often I read newspapers and magazines. But if I have to mention some book that has made the biggest impression on me, it would be "Katanga: Svensk FN-trupp i Kongo 1961-62" by Jonas Waern. A combination of biography and history book about the military operations of the Swedish UN-troops in Kongo. Relatedly, I do own a dusty blue beret, acquired from my services in the UN Peacekeeping Forces.

I do like more adventurous, action and mystery movies, often with a science fiction theme. Like "The Island", "Avatar" or "National Treasure". Or thought provoking ones like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".

I don't watch much TV currently. British humour like "The Office" or "Black Adder", or military history like "Band of Brothers". Sometimes I get stuck a whole evening in front of historical documentaries or animal and nature programs.

I only listen to music when driving or dancing. Elsewhere it disturbs my brain.

I enjoy boardgames with some economic build up like Race for the Galaxy, Lords of Waterdeep or Hawaii. Some cooperative games like Mansions of Madness or Arkham Horror is also fun. Every week is an on-going role playing campaign: Pathfinder or Traveller.

When hungry: sauerkraut and sausages, pickled herring, Mexican taco pie, spicy Indian chickpea stew. I don't have the English names for all my recipes.
Six things I could never do without
From the "Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge",
animals are categorized into the following groupings:

1. Those that belong to the Emperor
2. Embalmed ones
3. Those that are trained
4. Suckling pigs
5. Mermaids
6. Fabulous ones
7. Stray dogs
8. Those included in the present classification
9. Those that tremble as if they were mad
10. Innumerable ones
11. Those drawn with a very fine camelhair brush
12. Others
13. Those that have just broken a flower vase
14. Those that from a long way off look like flies

-- Jorge Luis Borges
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have finally discovered what is wrong with my brain: on the left
side, there is nothing right, and on the right side, there is nothing
On a typical Friday night I am
This is a multiple choice question for you. What do you think I would do on a typical Friday night?

a) Turn on the TV, watch some sports and fall asleep in front of it.
b) Go out and party all night, wake up in someone else's bed and have no memory where I am or who she is.
c) Discuss with my dog about our weekend plans. Then endlessly follow links on Wikipedia, interrupted by short bursts of gaming. Feed the cat.
d) Call my mother and talk for two hours. Then clean the kitchen and go to bed early.

(Don't forget to mark this question as Mandatory)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I collect empty boxes.

My father was a feminist.
But not my mother.
My father wouldn't allow that. Definitely not! No way!
You should message me if
You have seen my black Pilot pencil. I lost it somewhere here on OkCupid, maybe in your picture album where I temporarily lost my fine muscle control.
