Nice guy with great up-sides, but not perfect (surprise!) and do have real down sides. Recently visited Black Rock City, NV for the first time and WOW. I rode my motorcycle out there 2009 and did all the steel structual design and welding on a school bus art car that drove out and back to burning man in 2010 and 2011 was more chill but superflyly awesome. Lovin' that Black Rock City culture. I am a combination of blue collar and white collar: conservative Jew raised mostly kosher, went to private schools, played the french horn, pre-med at brandeis. However, I also make steel sculpture in my own shop – I am very serious about the art. I listen to heavy metal as well as pretty much everything else, and generally enjoy gearhead/blue collar culture although I am not consumed by it. I am also no longer a sports follower, although I enjoy the camaraderie around it and do go to/watch games when the opportunity presents itself. Here are some other random facts about me: I can be quiet as a little mouse - but frequently am not - inside voice exists, but is not a strong suit. My laugh prompts friends to occasionally request it for display - but my laugh is not for sale and you have to make me. It's not hard, though. Politically incorrect jokes (generally all the good ones are) are your best bet. I like to learn and listen and put things together in my head. I think too much. I feel self-conscious talking about myself this much on paper, although sometimes I lose track and do talk about myself too much. Ignorance drives me nuts. I am very tactile, and also a veritable fount of information you probably don't need 99.999% of the time. I am a pretty hardcore democrat, so if you are republican this could be a problem. I know a little spanish and raelly want to learn more but it has been hard to even maintain what little I have. I am searching for the answer and enjoying that journey. So long as I keep getting closer to the answer I will remain happy.
