Do you make it to many Hurricanes games? My dad and I just picked out our seats for season tickets next year.


No, actually I don't... We (typically my dad, brother, and self) go to about one game per season. I used to watch the games on TV all the time before the lockout but don't so much anymore.

And of course some mod-who's-not-me didn't add it in red text sometime in the recent past. Don't make silly assumptions like that.


To be fair, it says "you don't have to", and then the following question ("does that mean it's preferred to not?") hasn't been addressed. And reintros seem like the popular thing 'round here. So why not? Sure we get to know the newbies, but it'd sure be good for them to get to know us (and for other regulars to get to know us better!).

I do not wish to perish! To that end, I'm introducing myself to avoid inducing wrath.

Hi, my name's Scott. You may guess that my screenname is a slight portmanteau of my first and last name. I'm currently a student at the University of Illinois in electrical engineering, but I'm at home (Michigan) for the summer.

Interests include high voltage (I've built a Tesla coil, and I'd do it again!), jazz (especially playing it) and making chainmaille armor - a nice way to keep the hands busy and the voices quiet.

I'm a bit of a Linux fanboy and am working on becoming a proficient C programmer - expect me in the coding forum from time to time.

*eeeh huuhhhh* Any questions?

Anyone?

Wow, um. I kind of have been ignoring the new Intro thread. Oops. :/

Anyway, a few of you probably might know who I am, that being Thefiddler (or Caitlin, if you are comfortable calling my by my name). Resident music whore, indie guru, and "I-know-the-real-origins-of-emo-and-will-debate-it-all-day" queen. Bow to my music knowledge!

...Haha, not really.

I'm 17 years old, 18 in July. I share a birthday with Hugh (GermanSausage), though he is a year older than me. And it comes to him earlier than myself because he lives in Australia, see, and I don't.

I live in Illinois, which is a part of the United States. And that happens to be in North America, Earth, The Milky Way, The Universe...

I can sometimes be a sarcastic asshole. I'm on the forums a lot but don't post much anymore. Parts of my life story are strewn throughout the forum; good luck finding it and piecing it together.

Oh, and I'm a camera whore. I like pictures. :D

Uhh... and I've been on here for a while. I am, I believe, no longer a n00b. :D

Yay for introductory posts!

Also, to all the new folks: Welcome.

EDIT: Why the hell did I reintroduce myself? If you really wanted to know about me, you'd go find the old intro thread. XD

Hi, names Matt. I'm a semi-long-time xkcd reader, signed up to respond to the picture pwnage thread. I'll probably lurk otherwise.

Reintroductions! great!

Hi all the new people! I'm Matt, from melbourne, 17 years old, turning 18 in october and I'm in the first year of a computer games course at uni. As for music I like piano rock, metal with good melody and songwriting (JT Bruce is awesome, check it out) and some other wierd stuff, like that band gregorian. Check them out.

I mainly hang around the general forum, although I look at other forums, posting in general takes long enough so I don't put much in there. The exception to this is the logic puzzles forum, because I have developed an extreme dislike for mental masochism, far too frustrating to find answers to questions that the posters don't know the answer to themselves.


I used to like maths and be really good at it, but once it got to uni level it started to get less interesting. What I know will be good enough for any programming I come across, and if I see a practical use I'll learn other stuff for graphics and 3d modelling etc. whatever.


I get alot of really wierd ideas, and post some of them here. any hypothetical situation has the ability to multiply repeatedly in my head

say... what if suddenly a hypothetical burst out of my head like that comic? would it be aliens or raptors invading? and where would I run to? would i have a bow with me so i could shoot them? and then we could all hide out in military bunkers and steal the raptors space ships and fly to their home planet... except thats stupid... lets go to... a planet covered in awesome terrains that look cool and support human life while being raptor defensible... and then we could set up the internet again with the backup we took, and broadcast it to the raptors who die from the sheer overwhelming stupidity coming from most parts. heeheehee. oh, and we brought cats, and bioengineer them to have random captions which become their names.

EDIT: posted early to stop myself from continually typing.

I also go slightly nuts after 11 pm if I have had too much sugar and caffeine. I may post pictures of towel day soon also.

@Toeofdoom: Well, wouldn't you be responsible for the invasion of our old planet? You'd better think up a hypothetical raptor destroyer and pop that one into existence.

oh, I suppose you could say that. But, hypothetically is it really a problem if all those pesky politicians, emos and ignorant types get eaten while we're on our way to a new planet? It's like xkcd island extreme! Only with a few more people, cause we like bring all our friends and family... or those we want to bring. or... hypothetically the raptors could just sit around watching tv?


wait a minute... I already thought up a raptor destroyer:
and then we could set up the internet again with the backup we took, and broadcast it to the raptors who die from the sheer overwhelming stupidity coming from most parts

:P Humans have +25 stupidity aura resistance already which is why we're still (mostly) okay.

Three things have emerged from the latest bout of intros.

I feel old. (Which is odd at 25)
Hockey is awesome. (I'm a Penguins fan, you'll come to know our wrath in the next 10 years)
Music is great. (Though I fear there are several definitions of "indie")
Even Richard Nixon has got soul.

Re-Intro!

I'm bookishbunny, or Catalina in RL.
I'm 33 and getting sick of 25-year-olds in these fora saying they feel old. They should just wait until their first 2-day hangover.
I have a wide range of interests, but I also can't concentrate for long on anything, including trying to figure out what to write for my interests. :)
I'm an aspiring actor and I want to move to New York in December (I currently live in SC).

I reckon there should be a rule- no-one under the age of 30 should say they feel old.

Personally, I am 30 and do not feel old in the slightest.

Edit: Crossposted with bookishbunny (that's what happens when you have several websites open at once). Well, at least I know I'm not the only one tired of hearing 20somethings say they feel old.

We're doing re-intros? I posted my intro just before the last thread closed. So really can't be bothered with the re-intro.

Aren't you 22? At that age, I think you can legally use the term 'dated' only in terms of your romantic life. And in the case, stop bragging.

I are am malfunctioning Humorbot with slowly crashing software in my wetware. The part of my brain that tells me to stop talking or typing doesn't work.

Otherwise, I'm 27, fleshy, and live in a city that devotes far too much time to equine speed trials.

The 26th. It's somewhere on the forum. One of those "When's your birthday" threads, ages and ages ago. :)

@ Spaz Funbag - Hey, buddy, sarcastic asshole is mine. I do not appreciate you encroaching upon my territory.

Jordan, you are SO not allowed to say you feel old. I, however, can whine about being young all I want. :D

You can find out a lot less about me in the old Intro thread, page... I don't know, I think it was 17 or 18. :) ...Wow, that feels like ages ago. ><

Hey, you cannot kick me out! *pouts dejectedly*

Also, wrong. I think most the college freshman for this fall were born in 1988 or 1989. I was born in 1989, and am one of the younger ones on my class.

@ Geekner - Hello and glad to have you. Please do not use fire/guns/bombs in the Pic Pwnage thread. It's been done.

@ Age discussion - The first birthday that felt old to me was 26, last August. At 25, there was still a chance to be a kid. I'll soon be 27 and I can't believe it.

My worst was 25. It completely freaked me out. Now I feel great, and I lie, lie, lie like a rug when I audition, so age doesn't matter anymore!

I was referencing the incoming freshman classes, of expected 2011 graduation. But I have a lot of experience being "one of the youngest in my class", having been born in late August (plus, I never got to bring cupcakes in to school for my birthday).

And perhaps "old" was a poor way to describe it, but more accurately "entirely unready to be as mature as is expected".

In my head I am 24. I thought that for about a year before I actually turned 24. I still think that, 3 years after the fact.

I have no idea why.

So was I. I start college this fall. Actually, I start in a few weeks (yay summer classes), but the school year starts in the fall. And I will be a college freshman. Born in 1989. :)

Okay, if you wish: neither this nor my previous post were in any way meant to be sarcastic, especially towards thefiddler. Also, I will try to never claim to be a sarcastic asshole, as this is thefiddlers territory.


Might have been a little sarcasm there...

I'm going to stick to my guns here, and say that I can find at least a couple students here who never saw the 80s.

Actually though, my sister just finished her first year and was born in 87. I think. Perhaps the ability to do simple subtraction is the first thing to go.

2007-1990=17

It'd be possible, then, for an isolated few. The average, however, will be 1988-1989 kiddies.

Well, I ran a quick list and 4.6% of our incoming class is 1990.

So yes, average is the more reasonable but that seriously weakens my original lament.

I saw something that looked like "pics of the Tesla coil or it didn't happen". Also, sorry about the long response times, but I'm sick and need my sleep.

Links will be provided in lieu of inserted images, 'cause I don't want anyone to hate me.

And as far as the avatar goes, it's not my favorite...I'll make a new one soon. Promise!

Without further ado:
The whole setup
The best spark I could really manage
The coil, lighting a flourescent bulb
Me with a flourescent bulb. That's my physics hat.

As far as power rating, etc., I don't really know...I'm not yet an expert. The base tranformer was 15kV, 60 mA (I think), and when I did the bulb thing, I could feel my wrist twitching, but it didn't hurt unless I drew off a spark with bare skin.

Ah, I forgot to mention before...I, also, am a big fan of the photographing of things. But taking pictures of people sucks.

Oh, how lovely!

First picture: I assume the black thing is your transformer, and the white thing your capacitor. Crap! Where'd you get those????
900 Watts of blasting lightning power! Ach, nice, mine was only like 10kV 30mA *sigh*
What kind of freaking capacitor is that? Where'dya get that...oooh, i am melting...

Also, that ultra-plug on the floor is pretty "hawt", as some might say.

I enjoy the fact that you wear a science hat, way to go! Need that myself (although I might need a non-flamable kevlar-padded steel helmet that checks my pulse and calls 911 if my heart stopped beating or something...)

I must admit, you have a very fine Tesla Coil.

I...that's the longest, most bizarre spam message I've seen in a long time. Excellent disguise until this point, though it feels as if you let yourself down by not putting any links in...

Hey, I was born in '90, and I'm sort of a college sophomore :) That does make me feel happy, to know I've got about a 1-2 year head start on my fellows of the year 1990. I'll be done with my masters by the time they finish their bachelors. Plus, college has been free so far (and hopefully will continue to be).
