Education: - Associate of Science in Electronics Technology 1980 - Bachelor of Technology in Business Administration w/Management option 1991 - completed pre-Dentistry coursework (including the less-required Molecular Biology course) 2004 - Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene 2006 - Bachelor of General Studies in General Sciences 2010 As the well- rounded individual one becomes by age 58, I embrace many identities and have a few years work experience in the construction field (installing communications infrastructure as a Low-Voltage so-called Technician thinking it would be real technician work) while not embracing that identity. Among my identities: - God fearing man - a "believer", if you will, and I emphasize "believer" as opposed to most Christians, believers in name only - highly skilled experienced Electronics Technician greatly enjoying circuitry and software design and development - software developer specializing in what I call "office automation programming" (MS Office, etc.) - computer network administrator - CDL class A with the 3 popular endorsements and 16 months OTR - RDH in Colorado, but soon retiring that license Why I joined this forum: I googled "troll free forum". This forum was named by some random person as being one. I wish to bring my discussions over here that I started on a couple other forums. The topic is what is popularly called "primary perception". One of Mythbusters's episodes, entitled "Deadly Straw", air date 9/6/06, mangled their chance to demonstrate objectivity examining this subject. This world will benefit from utilizing this phenomenon, and I want to contribute to that end.
