Well, I wouldn't talk about computer science or electronics engineering right away. That might get the guys way too excited. Begin with your recent views on the world economy and stock market and how that it influenced by single interest groups, to start with. You can then advance the discussion towards psychology or metaphysics. Also it is always a runner to point out correlations within Kabbalah or equally funny esotheric concepts that make no sense. At that point he is probably trying to impress you with his Hebrew or Lojban skills and that's when you know that the date is a full success.1
