Just curious about the backgrounds of some of you folks!

 

I am an almighty beancounter. This wasn't my intended life however... I sort of fell into it from doing other jobs here and there. We got anyone working on a nuclear sub or something? Still got some whippersnappers left at school?

 

Doesn't seem like so long ago I was going on these sort of forums when I had my first win95 PC years ago as a teen... funny how time just seems to fly by!

Not one hundred percent certain if it is the correct name for it, but I work as a hostler

 

More simply put, I reverse semi-trailers

Afyer years of dominating the mid level beer leagues, I now dominate mid-pack triathlons. Sometimes I teach stuff, but that's just a hobby.

I spend my days trying to angle my monitor at work just right so no one outside my office can see I'm playing OOTP rather than working. When I'm not actually working that is.

I make my living as a developer (software). Been doing it for 25+ years. I always wanted to pursue biology, but that sort of never materialized.

I say nice things about game companies. I believe the professional term is "shill".

If I'm not about to kill customers, then I try to make it possible that hospitals, drugstores and patients at home are getting their meds, and food, and whatever delivered.

My actual job title is "Environmental Scientist" which I find amusing because it does not describe in the least what I actually do. Plus I think scientists are highly educated  people who make more money than I do and do more important things.

If everything is going well I do nothing. If everything is pear shaped I have to fix it.

I get paid by George Soros to undermine democracy, and occasionally the white race, by saying things on my twitter account.

Plus I think scientists are highly educated  people who make more money than I do and do more important things.

Well you're half right.

"Forum Moderator" is not a profession.

 

 

I do law stuff for the feds.
