    My name is eNtRopY. I am a PF addict.

    Mentat's mom is wise. I will take her advice and leave. This website is devouring my very essence. I shouldn't be here. I spend too much time arguing with people about inconsequential bullsh:t. What have I learned from any of you? What have I taught any of you? I see now that the bad outweighs the good.

    The only reason I am posting this thread is to ensure that I won't come back. Don't waste your time responding to this message. I will not return to read it.

    Being a PF addict is dangerous. If I were a drug addict or an alcoholic, at least a support group might intervene. No one cares when you waste your life away online.

    See in you in another life, maybe. It's been... real....

    And another person has fallen victim.. shouldn't we put a disclaimer of some sort warning people for the side effects of joining this discussion group?

    This is the first site I've found that actually has worthwhile topics other that "what's your favorite flavor of jello?"

    I've actually learned a thing or two here.. I'm not leavin:wink:

    I live in the sticks with virtually no one around with common interests. [It turns out that Integral and I are neighbors and we are going to hook up]. Due to my work which I really love, I have spent years in isolation working alone through the night. I also have joined numerous other forums that are all ruined by flamers, zealots, the absence of moderators, or censorship.

    You are the first truly interesting people that I have had to talk with in almost ten years. Or course I have friends, and neighbors, and family, but for a very long time I have been completely alone with the things I really love to study and discuss. How long can a person pretend to be interested in the discussions of others without any reciprocation? I look forward to all of you every day.

    I know one person who went through a series of life crisis that had driven him to the edge of suicide. He credits a forum like this - one that focuses on personal problems - with saving his life.

    Sure I've gone overboard with my participation here. But, not only did I have ten years worth of stuff to get out, my life has also allowed the luxury of excessiveness for a time.

    Cheers to PF. Cheers to all of my friends at PF. :smile:

    No. I'm a private consultant and contractor. I write computer code and design control systems; typically known as a Systems Integration Engineer. I have worked on projects ranging from stealth boats for the Israeli Navy to LASER drilling systems for ESI; from the launch control systems for National Missile Defense program to potato chip production.

    At times I do real well, and at times I don't. Last year business was so good that I would have been hard pressed to do better if I had won the lottery. I worked over 4500 hours last year. I had another year in which I worked about 4000 hours and made less than before starting college.

    Meet for lunch.

    Gosh...I hope you don't mind me mentioning this Integral.


    Is it OK for Mentors to consort with the little people?




    I'm going to wear an alien mask so he'll recognize me.

    I'm in IT as well.. rode the whole dot com wave, and was aiming for systems integration, but never got that far due to the bubble bust- had been toying with my own business until that happened.

    Now that it's gone bust I'm heading back to school, and going to pursue my dream of being a doctor... so I'll be terrorizing the UCI campus before long:wink:

    Don't feel too bad.edit. The flood of '96 killed my first venture... made 50 cents and hour for two years of work.

    I used to spend time at UCI medical center.

    Fantastic! What kind of doctor? I hear proctology is hot!

    Meaning you knew people that worked/went to school there, or were you just the Tim Taylor of California and giving your insurance company nightmares?

    Ya I have always wanted to be a psychiatrist, but I may change my mind during medical school and go for something like neurology. Of course there's always gynacology:wink:

    UCI has an an excellent medical program, and I would do psychiatric rotations at LBVMA(vetrans hospital in long beach) and general rounds at thier orange facility.

    Of course not being 18 anymore, I have to consider the logistics of working full time and going to school full time, then giving up my not too shabby current career to go to medical school full time. Haven't worked out the kinks yet, but I have some people who are supportive, so where there's a will..

    hey, I wanna work with lasers too. Don't you need an assistant?

    PS: I'm pretty new to PF but I plan on staying here for a while....:smile:

    Hmmm, peculiar topic.
    Personally, I’m not leaving until I find out some more about aliens; What would it take to convince them God exists, their views on homosexuality, masturbation, and yeah, how old they are!
