Hello from me. (you don't know me yet but you will)

    favorite fish: halibut

    my name is actually joel. i work as an automotive technician currently. i went to school for it. (huge mistake) i like the wrc, brazillian jiu-jitsu, and dogs. married w/ no kids. wife is currently finishing up her undergrad for physical therapy. i love long walks around the kitchen and beer snobbery. i hate my job and generally annoying people. i have recently revived my love for physics and intend to go back to school once we know where my wife will be going to med school. but for now i'm dusting off all of my old books and pouring over them feverishly. i'm not very intelligent so it may take me awhile but i just don't care. so please, bear with me.

    Hello from me. You don't know me yet, but you will. I hope you were able to clean up whatever it was that you were pouring over your books.

    Let's not flounder for puns. Arowana derail this thread with red herrings, it's already bream-ing with them. And turbot...oops, I mean turbo, hasn't even got in on the action yet.

    Chum off it, we know you were always fishing for trouble. This is a crappie thread anyway.


    OK, I confess, I had no idea till now that "crappie" was the name of an actual fish. This will be very helpful in skirting word bans in future flame wars. :tongue2:
