Christian, 20 year old student, visual artist, stoner and misanthropist.

Buddhist (heh), 25 year old Electrical Engineer from India, been in USA for about 6 years, and am going home for good in about 6 months. I am a full time engineer for an electrical contractor, and a part time live audio guy, which means I get to work with many of the bands we discuss here when they come through my city on tour. I have been visiting this site for about 8 years now, and have been on the forums under various handles, because I either forget them or get banned. I am here to have fun, and to learn. I may not agree with all the views held by those here, but try and take what I can and apply that to my own life.

my name is Glinda, been visiting this site on and off for a coupla years,. 26 years old, 150 plus credits toward my psych degree, still working in the nursing home, i'm one of the underpants gnomes. But I truly respect the elderly, simply because they made it through it all, for 80, 90 or more years. I have been doing nursing assistant work for 5 years and still give a shit, so next stop LPN. I have recently moved from my classical training in music to makin my own electronic stuff, still kinda baffled and humbled by the software end, but slowly gaining an understanding and making some decent compositions. I also came back from the dead after contracting swine flu while pregnant last year(seriously, it sucked) and gave birth to my second child last year, so I don't do as much writing or as much lurking as i used to. Ever since I moved to PIttsburgh been all into the Science Center, Natural History Museum,, and the great outdoors. West Virginia is a half hour away, and the mountains are freakin awesome. Also VNV Nation came here a coupla weeks ago and rocked it, and there's acutally a bit of a metal scene, which I did not get in AZ. I have a really down to earth way of talking, as I get used to oversimplifying for the people I tend to talk to in a normal day, so I'm usually not actively trying to be ignorant, sometimes I forget my big words. . .

Using big words is overrated.

Saying something clear is underrated.

I liked your message.

Using big words is overdone.

Saying something clear is underdone.

Unnecessarily.

I am Barbarossa.  I am a 23 year old disenchanted attempted scholar from Nebraska.  I've been a troll here for quite a while now (5 years off and on) and finally decided to jump on the bridge.

It's amazing how many people lurk for awhile before starting to play. Well done, and good pick of nickname.

Hello, I've also been lurking here for years and finally decided to get an account. I'm twenty years old and working on a BA. I like to write. I love art and especially enjoy drawing and painting landscapes. I draw portraits and still life drawings as well. I also enjoy photography. I love children but don't have any yet. Another passion of mine is learning languages. Right now I'm learning French and German, and I plan to learn Latin and Sanskrit next.

The number of students here is impressive, though slightly worrying, given that "students" generally remind me of liberal leftist hipster faggots trying to campaign for even more socialism in their countries.

I too am a student, and at least at my school you are correct.

I must respectfully disagree with the contention that we need more balkanization. People learn. If the basic person is of good quality, and given a good resource, they rise above the social conventions of their age.

Hi. My name is Ben, I'm 27, I Just moved to Albuquerque, Mexico.  I'm a civil servant who calibrates test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment.  Once I'm settled in here, I plan on hitting the books and getting a degree in forestry or wildlife management.  I enjoy music, I hope to find a group of individuals who share interests in music and ideology and start a band here.  I found this site a few years ago while looking for music and found more then that, I'm sure the minds behind this site don't needs pats on the back, so I will offer my gratitude instead.  This site is a beacon of unpleasent truth in an age of pleasent illusions.

Oh and it has some pretty good music it promotes as well..

OSW's posts reminded me of something I had thought about adding, now I will.  I think the reading recommendations are great.  Contributions to this site will compound if literature congruent with reality is consumed and digested by people of good quality.  I can only imagine, given my own experience, that given the proper literary material, minds will blossom.. and it's not just one sided, this site provides and balance of ideologies to test as long as you're willing to search.  Branching off into multiple sites is something that is relatively new as far as I know, but I'm sure It's bound to expand at an exponential pace.. it's how ANUS reached me 5 years ago, and look what the internet is now.
