Well here I am, so where do I go?
Urrrrrm, I suppose I'd better write a little more about myself, or else.
old enough to vote by 2.77777777777777777777777777777778 times, got to the age where I convieniently forget birthdays. Employed professional (Uniformed, but not armed forces, anymore), red blooded, heterosexual male, and part time ultra distance endurance eventer - marathons are for eating (or is that Snickers now) - think Sahara marathon etc. Though I really ought to give it up at my age, my body is finally having it's revenge for all the years of self abuse by falling to bits on me!!!!!
Anything else, please feel free to ask.
I am the only sane person in a world of mad people.
Having been provoked by stimulating discussion (There are some very clever people on here), I feel it is time to be semi serious and state why I came here in the first place.
Stimulating discussion, a mild aside from day to day routine at work and relief from when I've had a very physical and confrontational day, also at work.
My primary aim is to learn a little Spanish, which the language forum first led me to this site, gracias. The rest of the miscellaneous chat is just light hearted fun and unleashing my sense of humour from the constraints of political correctness.
My politics lie slightly to the right of Gengis Khan, but I respect the views of others and, most importantly, respect their right to be different. I expect no less by return.
My sense of humour is best summed up by the film "Dark Star" edited by John Carpenter and, if you get past the Calafornian accents, dodgy props (It was originally a 'B' movie) May be you would understand why it became a cult classic.
My mind set is best summed up by the film "Angel Heart" with Robert De Niro. If you watch it for the first time and understand the significance of the 'Lift', you will know how my mind works. It took me several weeks to explain it to friends.
Before anyone asks "Why films", it's the modern day medium for people, easy to access and easy to view. If I referred you to my favourite Shakespearian knight, Sir Toby Belch, most people would lose interest almost immediately. However - Sir Toby does say to the Puritans
"Dost thou think because thou art pious, there shall be no more cakes and ale"
Me - mostly harmless. That is all.
