My self-summary
So, this is the famous OK Cupid, eh? I'm here because uh... well, I read about it and decided to join because I'm curious about it, and I like to try new things.

On a more traditional note: moved to Edinburgh a while ago, enjoying exploring the city, enjoy all kinds of awesome stuff such as cheesy B-movies and talks about the meaning of life blah blah blah.

I suck at summarizing myself, clearly.
What I’m doing with my life
I crack whips at computers to get them to jump through hoops and make money for people... that's me saying that I'm a computer programmer. I think it makes it sound more exciting.
I’m really good at
Answering questions about the big bang and the beginnings of the universe. I spent six years of my life studying the mysteries of life, the universe, and everything (or what is more popularly known as physics) so I like to think I've become somewhat good at that.

SPOILER: it's really all kind of like "how long is a piece of string?"... also it appears I'm good at being sarcastic to dating websites.

Also: computers. If I wasn't I wouldn't have a job so yeah, good at those too.
The first things people usually notice about me
That mysterious, enigmatic quality that only I have. Mysterious and enigmatic to me as well, as it turns out this is a daft answer because I didn't know what to put.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite books? Used to collect comics too and amassed a pretty huge collection. I have tried a few popular science books, but I find them mundane because of said studying of life/universe/everything.

Movies? I have a confession: I enjoy watching really trashy sci-fi flicks and laughing insanely at them, and The Room which isn't a bad sci-fi flick but might well as be. If I have to name something: Big Trouble in Little China, Insidious, Sharknado and... uh... The Avengers. Everyone likes The Avengers.

Shows? Doctor Who, The X-Files, Firefly, Dollhouse, Buffy... my tastes were once what could be called "cult" but are now fairly mainstream. Oh, How I Met Your Mother too... that's not involving space, vampires or aliens but is incredibly funny and well written.

Music? Well, a quick gander at the ol' Spotify lists indicate I like Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Massive Attack, U2, Kings of Leon, Faithless, Foo Fighters and a whole bunch of film composers and opera. So basically: I like whatever I like the sound of.

Food? Well, this is a tough one. I've been trying to develop a refined taste for foods but truth be told whatever I can find a) in the fridge and b) the Tesco's around the corner. I've got working on being a better cook on my to-do list.
The six things I could never do without
Six things I could never do without?

Well... my computer, oxygen, gravity, the sun, cat pictures and... the number six. There are six things I could never do without.

I can really be sarcastic at these questions... I like it!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thoughts. I'm meant to try and sound deep here, aren't I?

But yeah. I think thoughts a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing we do every night Pinky, try to take over the world!

On a more serious note, it depends. Could spend it in with a flick, could decide to go off to something interesting I've found on the net. Consistency on spending my Friday nights is not my strong point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm always dissatisfied with photos of myself. Others could say it's the best photo in the world and yet still I will look at it and think "meh".
You should message me if
Well, to be honest this is more of an experiment than anything else just because I'm kind of curious about what OK Cupid is.

But if reading through this amused you in some fashion, particularly either a) you feel it's a pathetic attempt to be funny or b) genuine enjoyment, feel free to say hi. I'll try and be amusing some more.
