Ugh, fine. 


1. Field of work. 

          College Student / amateur writer. 


2. Hobbies. 

          Everything. I'm not even kidding. If something peaks my interest, I devour it. 


3. Goals.  

          Finish my book before graduating (It's already halfway done, so that's looking likely.)


4. Favorite ship class. 

          Cruisers. I murder in them.


5. What annoys you most? 

          ____________________. (In other words, it depends on the situation.) 

 

 

See if you're gonna answer 2. like that, then I have to sit here and force you to list everything:P 

And for 5. so you hate the world? What a lovely outlook for a writer, lul.

 

On another note, I wanted to ask if you've heard of Inkitt? I saw that your book is posted up on another site, but I personally like Inkitt since if enough people like your book, the site's owners and administrators can potentially come up to you and offer a publishing deal. Of course, I'll probably get around to reading your book regardless, when I have time (or when work is slow), and judge you thoroughly and enjoy your work!

*sigh* Fine, for number two, I can include drawing, archery, horseback riding, guns, writing (obviously), lockpicking, sailing, taking walks, model making, fencing (western and eastern variants included), D&D, reading, forum-sh*t posting, anime, manga (I count them separately), listening to music, playing the bass & cello & piano & violin, a little math, and crazily enough—studying. There are probably other things that I spent months at a time obsessing over, but have since forgotten.   

 

For number 5, everything annoys me in small amounts. I guess if I had to point out some things that annoy me more, it would be a person not able to see more than one perspective—whether willingly or as a consequence of upbringing.

 

I have not heard of Inkitt. I will check it out. Though, my story is being put up in weekly installments, and is very likely to end up being quite a bit longer than a typical book. It's already 320 pages long, and isn't likely to end anytime soon. (Pls don't judge me too harshly....)

Torpedoes don't have any friends. So they will kill everything in their path. To prevent team kills we should all watch out where we fire those fishes. That means each and everyone of us, DDs of the second line!

No my name does NOT refer to those things from Odysseus! They refer to those loud things attached to a fire truck. Not to beautiful girls singing on the Ocean.

On another note, which instruments did you learn in order? I used to play Cello, then I went on to Alto Saxophone and tried to self teach a little bit of piano which never stuck to me... Because I only have your avi, I keep imagining Ryuu playing the bass and cello and it's just...

Well let's see...

 

1. Field of work. Semi-retired truck driver.  Not working at the moment but if the right gig comes along...

2. I really enjoy MMO's, fishing, hiking, (outdoors in general) and rock and roll from bubble-gum pop to most forms of metal.  The screechy-growly stuff where you can barely, if at all understand the words I find boring but the rest of it I love.

3. I want to walk across the US, do the PCT in one shot, (done it in pieces already but not all at once), same with the A.T..

4. Cruisers mainly, love almost all ships at T4 though.  If I could only play one tier it would be 4 hands down

5.  I promise not to start a political debate here and so will not single anyone out but...

 

What annoys me the most right now is the current group of jack-holes running the country in Washington D.C.  In my entire life I have never been as embarrassed, depressed, discouraged or cynical with regard to my government than I am at this very moment and that is saying something.

 Who are we? I'm dying to know.

 

I'm actually very curious too, +1 for the thread.

 

I'm not sure if I'm surprised by how young the demographic is... sometimes I get the sense that there are a lot of older players, but maybe it's only because other games are really skewed to the younger end. It's still very little data so far, but the second age "peak" at 55-59 is also interesting. It looks like a disproportionate number of the survey responses (relative to the polled size of the age group) are students though.

 

As for the survey:

 

  1. Software engineer
  2. In order of dedication: drawing, LEGO, computers, various other building hobbies like modeling, various video games but mainly this one
  3. Eventually I want to build and design my own car and my own house
  4. BBs, Russian and USN DDs not too far behind
  5. When residue hardens along the edge of like a ketchup bottle or something... just gross

 

EDIT: I used to care about not giving out my age on the Internet, but NSA already knows I'm 28.

What sizes are the Cello/Bass/Violin? I assume full size, since you know.... Amazonian. :P

I want to get a general idea of the sorts of people here on the forum. A diversity survey, if you will, so that we all have a better idea as to the average population.  

 

So, just answer the poll as the top, and maybe these questions: 

 

1. Field of work. (Job, student, retired, etc.)

2. Hobby, or free-time activity. 

3. Maybe a major goal or something. 

4. Preferred ship class.

5. Something that annoys you.

 

 

Please, keep this poll nice and clean. I want to be able to use the findings as a reference in the future.   

 

1. Factory worker putting together Vacuum Cleaners

2. WOWS , For Honor (I joined the Vikings), Playing electric guitar on a huge amp blasting the whole house >:D just look up the guitar solo scene from Cheech and Chong's next movie (1979) to get a rough idea, and finally listening to George Carlin.

3. I gave up smoking Tobacco a year ago, I used to chain smoke 2 packs of Marlboro Long 100's a day, and smoked full size cigars for roughly 9 years.

4. anything USA, Japanese, or German.

5. Taxes!

 


 

Disclaimer to toxic players: Not everyone is a pro-MLG gamer, so stop pretending you are and go nerd rage somewhere else. Better yet, return to your foul realm of World of Tanks, and/or Call of Duty. -Signed EVERYONE
