Default Who R U.

Yeah. Let's all get cushy cushy and exchange useless information.

Who are you lot anyway? I know there was a thread like this WAAAAY back... but that was... you know. Waaay back.

Include a picture if you want, where you live, how old you are if you want. Whatever. This and that. It's up to you.
Personally, I'm curious. I've known of the existence of most of you for longer than I've known my current friends. So, hell, at least tell me your name.

I'm leaving till Sunday. If all goes according to plan I'll have a clip of me to show you after I come back from the Krokus carnival concert and then I'll tell you a thing or two about myself if you want.
This isn't a vanity thread. I'm actually genuinely interested to see the people behind the avatars. Hence I'm shutting up about myself for now.
Fire away ladies. Random info isn't as sentimental as a pic.

Well, I'm a fifteen year old highschool sophomore attending a somewhat prestigious school, to be brief.

You may call me Maximilian Ximenes, or Max for short.

I'm the son of a newspaper editor and a professional writer *** literary agent.

I'm an amateur philosopher, astrophysicist, roboticist and I'm a self proclaimed misanthrope.

I'm on my high school robotics team and am one of the lead designers for it.

I have some training in computer graphics and animation.

I have attempted at writing many novels, with a high fantasy universe, steampunk alternate history universe and a comic-book universe in various stages of planning, as well as numerous aborted attempts at writing a young adult fiction geared towards young nihilists.

I AM a nihilist, a transhumanist, vitalist, libertarian and minarchist.

I view time as a dimension, not a resource.

I only wear black, always, usually with my leather coat.

I have no face.

I was born in Montreal, live in New York, am Semi-Fluent in French and capable of understanding, to various degrees, German, Catalan, Spanish, Greek, Yiddish and Japanese.

I'm not photogenic, but I'll try to find some pics of me, somewhere.

I posted a pic of myself from many months ago that showcased my hairstyle, which at the time had bangs going down to my nose. They now hang around my lips. Started as a beatle mop-top, turned into a joey ramone thing, and now it's some horrible tangle that I refuse to cut.

Sounds familiar...ish. Except now I just tie it back in a ponytail most of the time.
I prefered my hair when it was a bit shorter, but I don't trust hairdressers.
They just shave me down.

http://home.graffiti.net/kakwakas/HashBash07.jpg Fun lil picture of me at a rally. :]

I'm a 19 year-old community college student hoping to be an air traffic controller (probably going to join the air force).
I write essays that impress every English teacher I've ever had, but have no desire to become a journalist.
I love debating.
I'm a libertarian, atheist, and humanist.
I like guns.
I have very little faith left in my government and the nation that allows it to be in such condition.
I'm more or less obsessed with fire & ice dichotomy (hence the sig). I also wear a lot of red and blue (and have a picture folder on my comp dedicated to cool pictures of red & blue stuff).
I'm not very photogenic either.
I'd like to learn some form of martial arts, especially staff fighting.
I have longish hair (usually to about shoulder length before I cut it a couple inches) and wear a hat all the time.
I work at a gas station.
I love weed and beer.

I'm a five-year-old advanced artificial intelligence whose chief duty is in maintaining and monitoring the security system of a military installation whose location and ownership I cannot know, due to safeguards instituted by my programmers.

I have no corporeal form or sensation, so obviously a photo isn't going to be coming anytime soon. I'm told that my holographic avatar (used when interacting with my caretakers and the facility's officers) is male, however the algorithm used to produce it isn't expressed to me in anything visual that I can describe, so it's all second-hand information, and again, not readily translatable into a jpeg.

I'm 13, and my names Saim Dusan Inayatullah. The name "Saim" means one who can fast. It is a Turkish name that my mum decided to name me in a dream. "Dusan" is a Serbian name meaning "dear one". Inayatullah is an Islamic name meaning "one who receives the beneficiance (sp?) of god (ullah).

I'm a half-Punjabi, quarter-Serb, eighth-Slovene, eighth-Russian American Australian Pakistani Serbian (my four ethnicities, and four nationalities). I consider myself a citizen of Earth rather than part of any country. I'm not very patriotic.

I'm a skeptic who doesn't believe in the supernatural. I'm also anti-religious. I'm an ex-Buddhist, ex-Ananda Margi and ex-agnostic. I also come from an Islamic background (Pakistani Punjabi) but neither my father nor my grandfather are Muslims any more (my dad calls himself a 'cultural Muslim', and I'm not sure about my grandfather, but he used to be a skeptic and atheist). I believe in democracy, globalization, freedom of speech, secularism and some socialistic ideas. I'm also a gamer (go figure).

My name is M√°rio and, as anyone who has looked under my avatar knows, I'm from Portugal. I'm a high school student in my last year and I'm taking the Sciences and Technologies course. I live in a small village in the countryside and, while I like it here for being my home and all that, I can't wait to get out of here and go to a big city (I hope to go to a university in Lisbon).

My school is in a nearby town, so I have to use buses everyday, which don't always make my life easy (most days, my classes finish at 13:30 but the bus only arrives at 14:30, so it's one hell of a wait).

My father runs the local taxi company (along with my older brother and formerly my maternal grandfather) and my mother works in the office of a basic school close to mine.

I like to read fantasy and sci-fi books, play RPG, strategy and sometimes FPS games and watch TV. I absolutely love stand-up comedy and some of my friends say I have a talent for it, even though I have a serious case of stage fright. I also have a love for astronomy: the bodies floating out there in outer space completely fascinate me.

I like to party with my friends but I don't do it as much as other people around here (mostly because my best friends don't live in my village and I have to put up with a lot of assholes in here), which has earned me, to my chagrin, the title of biggest nerd around (there are much worse in here, believe me).

I practice taekwondo and, while I really sucked at first, I've been getting better. Now I'm just one exam away from becoming a black belt! Training can be very rigorous and strenuous at times, but you get to meet a lot of great people.

I'm an atheist and I try to respect religion, but it can be really hard at times (a friend of mine is deeply religious and has now gained the habit of greeting me with a shout of "Dominus Vobiscum", whatever that means). I'm also a socialist. I love my country, its people and its history, but I deeply despise the current government and most of the measures it has taken.

P.S.: I'm not photogenic at all. When I take a picture, either my eyes close with the flash or I end up making a face so weird it's laughable.

My name's Imanol (aka Lon-ami backwards) Renilla García.

I'm from Spain, from Vizcaya/Bizkaia, Bilbao/Bilbo.

I'm 18 years old, finishing bachelor to make informatic or industrial engineer. Anyway, I'm very good with technical drawing and I'd want to make scale models and stuff like that in the 3 ways: Drawn, 3D by PC and scale models.

Otherwise, I love to translate things, and a lot of people asks me to do it. It's an easy work for me, and I mustn't move from my home anywhere to do it. Therefore, I won't get annoyed with those ugly translations.

Finally, working for videogame stuff would be great too. I love to make terrain maps for W3, and I'm more than impatient to get SC2 for continuing my hobby.

Well, think that's all. Sure I forget something but, well, it doesn't mean.

PS: I love to paint miniatures too, but I'm getting annoyed of those 50 year old guys that like to **** the young generations. I always get the second prize. I hate them all. I HATE THEM.

It's me, or all the non-english guys here are the best english students in their schools?

PS: Me too. When da teacher sends work, I make it in a sec and I pass the rest of the class reading da newspaper or painting or writing or sleeping. Spanish education system is the 3rd worst of the world...

I have a problem, being familiar with a multitude of languages, I have found myself occasionally creating some horrible pidgin in my head, though thankfully I stop my self before finishing.


How many languages are all of your capable of speaking, besides your native one and english?

Native ones are Spanish and Euskera.

I know english too. Deutsch also and a bit of French.

Sometimes I find myself being asked: What the hell have you said?

It's supposed I talked in another language, like Deustch. (/Crap)

Besides Portuguese and English, I also speak Spanish and can understand written French with a bit of efort, but spoken french is way out of my league.

I also know one or two sentences in Japanese, but I'd like to actually learn the language.

You're Basque?

I happen to be a huge fan of Jai-Alai, do you play that at all?

Forgot to say, I'm also a manga addict. I started reading manga last year and now I can't stop. I was actually reading 6 different manga at one point: Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fairy Tail and 666 Satan (which has already ended). I also watch the corresponding anime, when they exist (except FMA).

When I have time, I plan to start reading D.Gray Man (looks very good), Gintama (I've heard it's a comical manga, but I haven't even read a single page, so I don't know) and Berserk (story is great, characters have deep personalities and I've heard it has a lot of gore).

It's a running joke among my Japanese class that I'm the only person in the class who detest anime- and it's true.


I'm just taking it because I know the Asian market is huge when it comes to technology, my school didn't offer korean and I'm too lazy to even try comprehending mandarin.

I speak Finnish and English well (understatement), Swedish and Latin fluently (overstatement).

I'll post a proper introduction post later.

I want to learn Japanese too, just for the business stuff, or Korean, for the same reason.

If you mean the sport, well, I played it long ago in school, but I'm not so good. I haven't played it for long time... o.o

I usually see people playing it in the "frontón"'s. It's a good game, but people likes to play it without the basket more than with it. If you like the sport, search TV channels like ETB 1 and ETB 2, they sometimes broadcast matches.

I prefer things like swimming, climbing and the bicycle. Or the computer GG. You must have strong hands and a proper training.

I've single handedly introduced the game to my school (which has a large amount of handball players- strapping a cesta punta to their arm came naturally) and it's one of the few sports I enjoy.

I'm Jere from Helsinki, the capital of Finland. I'm a student at a High School currently, and I plan to go on to an university soon enough.

Besides videogames, I mostly enjoy writing, though that's kinda ironic since I hate taking a pen and physically scribbling something. I mostly write in my head or with my computer.

I like to take very, very long walks in the streets and forests around here, since that makes my imagination roll. I also recently started to very actively read fantasy.

I live with my mother and younger brother. My other brother had already moved to his own place and my father lives with a new wife. Me and my brother visit him every second weekend.

To cover my religious and philosophic field, I'm an agnostic, socialist, anglophilic-americophobic, pacifist, anti-capitalist-enviromentalist.

My interests (things I am interested in, but do not actively study) include Warfare History and the flaws of the free market economy.
