I'm twenty-five and a Macintosh systems engineer who lives in the northwestern Philadelphia suburbs. I enjoy a good conversation, particularly one that involves a good-natured argument. I enjoy talking, particularly to someone who enjoys some of the same things I do. I'm a bibliophile and read just about anything interesting I can get my hands on, especially when it comes to history, news, science fiction, and
a lot of other topics that would take too long to list. I also have a wicked sense of humor, love sarcasm and irony (the drier, the better),and have been known to appreciate a classical concert without nodding off midway through the performance. I'm also a bit of a workaholic (so I understand working long hours) self-supporting, self-cleaning and housebroken.

Ideally (and this is going to sound a little odd, but bear with me) I'm looking for someone who will argue with me. Not arguing over little things like whose turn it was to take out the trash or who flushed what while somebody was in the shower, but actual thoughtful good-natured debate. I'm looking for someone who uses their brains on a daily basis and isn't afraid to stand up for themselves. Being a geek (I don't care what platform you use, as long as you're good at using it) is also one of the things I'm looking for as I find intelligence very attractive. In the end, I want someone who I can talk shop with, yet also be able to get away from work and computers altogether. My email is up in my profile if you're interested.

I know the basics, but most of what I know is what I read in science fiction novels (David Weber and Niven especially.)

Particle physics is neat, but I have a tendency to want to apply things.  I'm the kinda guy who'll think about antimatter with an eye toward using it to make a personal single-stage Earth to Mars shuttle.  (If the cruise only takes a week, how much space, food or air do you really need?)

And how much reactor shielding. Gotta love an Orion for fast intrasystem traffic.

Seriously, my favorite "more atoms than brains" 50s science project had to be Project Pluto: http://www.merkle.com/pluto/

This one was particularly horrifying, inasmuch it was going to be a cruise missile powered by an unshielded fission reactor. They finally scrapped it when they couldn't figure out how the heck it was going to get from the launch point to the target in the Soviet Union without catastrophically contaminating everything in its flight path.
