WikiLeaks guru Julian Assange's bizarre SF-themed dating profile

The WikiLeaks mastermind—currently in a British jail, being held on rape charges—joined the OkCupid dating site looking for some very specific things and painted himself as a discerning geek.

It's been a while since Assange visited his profile on OKCupid, since December 2006, to be exact, but when he created the profile under the name Harry Harrison—also the name of the sci-fi writer who wrote the novel Make Room! Make Room!, which was turned into Soylent Green—he put forth something of a nerd persona.

Assange opened with: "WARNING: Want a regular, down to earth guy? Keep moving, I am not the droid you're looking for. Save us both while you still can." He then went on to describe his ideal woman, a "siren for [a] love affair, children and occasional criminal conspiracy."

Perhaps he should've also mentioned that he was psychic.
