Hello
« on: October 07, 2008, 01:05:08 PM »
Tell us about yourself... How old are you? Where are you from? What do you do (school/work)? Where do you work, if applicable? What kind of music do you like? Do you have a girl (boy?) friend?  Are you in any other clans? What are they like (if applicable)? Any friends around here (members or otherwise)? Why do you want to join? Have you read our rules?  What's your favourite tv show? Movie? Band? Country? Continent? Season?  Type of weather? Subject in school? Chemical? Food? Drink? Book? Author? Operating system? Phone company? Computer brand? Linux distribution? Sport? Sports team? Sporting event? Game? Style of game (board, rpg, card, etc.)? Bird? Animal? Pet?

I'm EcH. My real name is Eric, an 18 year old freshman in San Diego State University. I am American, of various northern European descent, with a height of ~6’2,” and live in East County San Diego.  I don’t have a girlfriend. 

I do have friends on this forum, such as Dan (leet_muffin), Hagen (bigazndaddy), James (Newby), and Zach (towlie). 

As for my favorite TV show: hell if I know; it depends on the day. 

Favorite movie: Once again, it varies.  Dark Knight certainly ranks up there.  As does the first Godfather. 

Favorite band: Meh, I’m into metal, though I do have tastes outside the genre.  Metallica (older stuff) is an old favorite.  And yes, much to the mockery of a couple choice pals who frequent here, I do like Korn. 

Favorite country: United States of America. 

Favorite continent: That really depends on in what regard.  North America is cool, I guess, though I would like to go to Europe some time. 

Favorite season: The ones that involve my life. 

Favorite type of weather: Basically anything not muggy and bug-ridden, though I also prefer to avoid tornadoes. 

Favorite subject in school: History. 

Favorite chemical: Au ftw. 

Favorite food: Going to have to go w/steak, though cheeseburgers rank up there (and if price is a consideration . . .)

Favorite drink: Sprite/Sierra Mist/7UP (there is no difference) would be my favorite soda. 

Favorite book: This is more difficult than favorite movie.  I could simply provide a lengthy list of the books that I have read which I felt were excellent, but no one would read that.  So I’ll just pick off a couple I’ve read recently.  Who Are We? by Samuel Huntington is a must read, and I am loving 33 Strategies of War by Robert Greene. 

Favorite operating system: Not picky; whatever I am used to at the time. 

Favorite phone company: Verizon gives me free talk to other people on Verizon.  Being cheap, I treasure that. 

Favorite sport: Gladiatorial combat.  This is, of course, assuming I am watching rather than playing.  Seriously, though, I’m not really a sports addict, and can just enjoy whatever is around.  Maybe paintball. 

I do support the local teams, though. 

Style of game: Flexible and intellectually stimulating, anything that allows me to use my strengths to full force—thus, almost exclusively video games.  Particularly strategy, though sometimes I dabble in shooters, RPGs, and online text-based. 

Favorite animal: Really depends on what regard the question is asking about.  All around, though, probably dog. 

Favorite pet: I’ve got two dogs, Rocky and Riley, who are pretty epic.

That sounds like a good idea. 

Actually, I forgot to mention that lately I have taken to laser tag.  I mean, I'm not yet skilled, but it would probably take the place of my favorite sport to play, being that I haven't done paintball in the better part of a decade.

I'll have to disagree there. Sierra Mist tastes like absolute asshole with all of the trimmings, the other two are good though.

Hello!  Why are there so many people here who like the Metal genre? :(
The once grove of splendor,
Aforetime crowned by lilac and lily,
Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.

Because there is a lot of it, and some of it is even good!
And like a fool I believed myself, and thought I was somebody else...

There are just way too many sub-genres in metal. We should start breaking them up.

Favorite chemical: Au ftw. 
Needs more BOOOOOOM! That said, welcome!

Because metal is popular among the geek/techie types. I suspect it's because metal isn't really mainstream, and neither are geeks, so it's kind of a rebellion against pop culture.

Or maybe it's jus that metal is so good. :)

Is it odd that I wonder why you quoted that first thing?

On the Sierra Mist note, I can’t tell the difference.  Perhaps it is that I have not tasted that other thing.  Nor do I intend to.

That’s an interesting theory, though I avoid the geek label, don’t deserve the techie label, and am not rebellious against the mainstream.  Personally, I have historically been disproportionately reasonable and levelheaded, even dealing with all the idiots who disagree w/me for no good reason; also, I have, until recently, been utterly uninvolved in physical activities resembling sports.  Thus, powerful, impassioned music is perfect to balance out my life. 

Plus that last thing you said.  ;)

On that last note, a very good point.  I should consider that.

Hi there.  Yeah, Hagen set me up.
