    It seems we don't know (or maybe it's just me) too much about eachother. So a few details about yourself would be good. You know, like credit card information, PIN, social security number, etc. :biggrin:

    Me:
    Well, I'll be 13 on May 6, (I'm one of the young ones)and I'm in seventh grade. I like physics, cynicism, making fun of country music and wannabee persuasive people. I like humour, and I collect knives (odd hobby, i know)

    Aw Shucks. Can't I just paypal you some money instead. Wait a minute, you didn't mention Paypal. Better luck next time.

    Hey, that's totally fine. I can do paypal, or you could just mail me the straight dough. Whatever works for you to send that money is fine.

    Just remember: Your cash is our cash.

    When I was a kid I collected knives...I always appreciated the craftsmanship in a quality knife. It started out with Boy Scout and hunting knives, but then I started buying them just because they were cool.

    I also learned that I should never spread mayo with a good knife. :frown:

    I too was fond of knives. I used to have a butterfly knife or commonly referred to in my country as the Balisong, similar to the one The Punisher was holding on one scene. I used to apply oil on it to make the joints looser thereby making it easy to perform neat tricks on it.

    I'm really getting into those tactical knives from places like Cold Steel and Spyderco. The neighbors must think it a bit odd when I go in my back yard to practice with throwing knives. It all gets a bit expensive after a while though, especially if you appreciate steel quality.

    Oh yeah, and my name is Corey bytheway. Or Corky if you want.

    I'm crotchety, set in my own ways, I don't have a life, I work way too much, I'm all alone and unloved, and my cat vomited in my shoe this morning and I didn't notice until it was too late. :eek:

    hey, at least you have a sunny disposition and nobody is ever alone when they have PF in their life and when you are a part of PF you are never unloved. The only problem I see is that your feet smell so bad they can gag a cat.

    I'm 31 years old, my favorite color is blue, and my turn-ons include long walks on the beach, candlelight dinners, and jello wrestling.

    Got my BS in Engineering from RPI [sarcasm]in wonderful Troy, NY[/sarcasm] in 1995. Liked the school so much I stuck around to go for my PhD in theoretical subatomic physics. Unfortunately, my thesis advisor died and I lost my funding, so now I'm on leave of absence (anyone want to send me 27 grand a year so I can finish?). Now, I'm teaching math as an adjunct at a local college, and it looks like I'll get hired as a full professor. If that happens, I'll get the funding I need to change my userid to "Doctor Tom". Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    My favorite subjects are the Standard Model (no kidding!), mathematical logic, and analytic philosophy. I am also making an attempt to learn string theory and LQG, thanks to some handy online resources I found.

    My gosh Evo, I thought that after the Academy Awards you were on your way to New Zealand. :eek:

    We all love you. The cat vomit is just kitty's way of saying "think of me today...I'm with you mom". :biggrin:

    Never underestimate the importance of personal hygeine. In fact if you are looking for true love I have only two suggestions: personal hygeine and oral sex.

    I've been avoiding making that decision. I've got less than 2 months to decide. Bad timing. :frown:
