Blinding ignorance does mislead us. O! Wretched mortals, open your eyes! --Leonardo da Vinci
He lives vicariously through himself...lol
As long as I can remember I've been told I was a modern renaissance man. In elementary school my teachers called me "Indiana Jones" because of my interests in archaeology, anthropology, science, history, and adventure. In junior high I was honored at "the young authors conference" at the U of A for a short fictional story. My freshman year in high school I was honored at Pima Community College for a painting. I've always had a thirst for learning and experience. But don't get me wrong I've never been & could never be "all work & no play", quite the opposite. Play is very important to me, sometimes too important. Maybe that's why I still haven't finished college or maybe it could be the fact I can't settle on only one major? Eh, who am I kidding, I probably goof off too much or are on some pointless adventure depending on your perspective, lol, and yet I always have enough money for fun and for the future... I'm very easy going and passionate about all life has to offer. I get along in about any social setting, however I did once have an awkward moment just to see what it feels like. I still love adventure. I love camping and nature walks. My favorite sports are paintball, martial arts, target shooting, archery, sport-car racing, skateboarding and basketball. I'm always looking for new and exciting things to do.
I am inquisitive, exceptional, and carnal
What I’m doing with my life --
Always green and growing searching for unique experiences, knowledge and a happier more fulfilled life. I don't want to sound like a self-improvement freak. Well, I am a self-improvement freak! Deal with it! I love it that my life and how I feel about my life get better every day. I would love to make some significant contributions to the worlds of Art and Science. Maybe I'll write the next "Great American (Graphic) Novel". Maybe I'll create a new Unified field theory or other unification of physics(Theory of Everything) becoming the next Einstein/Hawking or maybe even the next Antony Garrett Lisi or at least work with him, lol.
I’m really good at --
"A jack of all trades and a master(s degree) of none!" at least not yet, lol, probably applies to me. I've always been very good at whatever I put my mind to.
The first things people usually notice about me --
I've been told often "How do you know that?" or "You know way too much!" I dunno, lol, 'was born w/ a good memory, an insatiable love and desire for knowledge and the uncanny ability to figure out how things work and fix them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food --
Too many to list; variety is the spice of life; I like a lot, probably even what you like! Almost everything but I'm partial to Queen and Mozart if that gives you a sense of my eclectic taste.
music: most everything except I'm not fond of most country and some rap, see above.
food: most everything... but especially fond of mexican, italian, seafood and sushi.
Everyone in this list is a author of books or has written things I like and many people in this list also have movies made of their books and or about them or even starring them and I probably like those movies too.
Everyone from Douglas Adams, Aesop, Dante Alighieri, Aristotle, Isaac Asimov, Marcus Aurelius, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Dan Brown, Arthur C Clarke,Samuel Clemens, Alexandre Dumas, T.S. Eliot, Ian Fleming, Benjamin Franklin, William Golding, Hemingway,Brian Herbert, Frank Herbert, Homer, Jung, Bruce Lee, Stan Lee, C. S. Lewis, Shirow Masamune, Nietzsche, Katsuhiro Otomo, Plato, Ann Rice, Sarte, Socrates, J.R.R. Tolkien, Sun Tzu, Leonardo da Vinci, Voltaire and Vonnegut to Zarathushtra ...
and that's no where near everybody...I told you it's too much to list, lol
The six things I could never do without --
beauty, imagination/intelligence, friendship, love, sex, and TV....oh you thought the last one would be profound, lol
I spend a lot of time thinking about --
Life, the universe and everything and why 42?
But seriously, besides the book turned PBS mini-series and now into a Hollywood movie (it used to be that this was kind of a vague and unique reference, lol) I really do spend a lot of time thinking about the meaning of life, animal life, other life, the universe, other universes, and just about everything else having to do with how everything came into existence and how, why, and/or how we should deal with or interact with everything lol
On a typical Friday night I am --
Hopefully w/ my loved ones. Shoot! Who am I kiddin' probably vegin' out on the TV at my home or at my parents' mooching on some of that home cookin', oh, I guess they are my loved ones, never mind, lol.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit --
I am a student of life, and degree or no degree, I might very well be the most intelligent person you have ever met and I might even know more than many graduates with degrees. As I kinda stated above, many people think I'm kinda a "Good Will Hunting" type -- wise beyond my years and sometimes knowing as much or occasionally more than my professors about the subject being taught. I'm not sure if I always should put a lot of value on "official schooling", I know I might need a "degree" to get certain types of high paying jobs, however a 'job' is not necessarily the best nor quickest way to monetary wealth. I even have one friend who always calls me "the genius" and he uses me like Google, ha ha, always calling me at odd hours just to pick my brain about something. Some say I remind them a little of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. I'm not exactly a genius, I have my strengths and weaknesses just like anybody else. I do have a high IQ but it's not like I'm Einstein or anything, or maybe I am, lol. I am very independent and live in my own condo and have some very big aspirations and goals, some say maybe too big. I guess I am a hedonist, but who doesn't love the pleasures of this world. Hey, if you don't want to have a lot of fun, while still being responsible, and you take yourself too seriously, then you might as well move right along to the next profile because we probably won't get along. Hmm, I don't know, I am who I am and I'm extremely unique and maybe that's not a good thing.
