@Doc? There is no viable alternative to learning by doing, so keep up the self-teaching!

Bananas are naturally slightly radioactive, an actual fact...so if you're lookin for some superpowers forget about rolling around in toxic waste, just eat ALOT of bananas.

So lets get this over with I guess:

Tell us about yourself. What's your story?

Well bsb are my initials, my first name being Benedikt. I'm 17 years old and come from Austria and live pretty close to Vienna the capital. I still go to school and I'm currently in my final year. After school we either have to go to the military for some months or instead (what I will do) do community service. I personally will try to get a job at the ambulance because I guess some education on first aid can never be bad thing to have.
After that I want to study at the Montan University, which is a rather small but supposeably really good one, focusing on Resources, Energy and the whole process of finding, manufacturing and recycling them. I'm interested into petroleum engeniering, but since you don't have to decide till after your first year there I guess I still could change my mind on it and study geolgy or material sciences or something else instead. I for sure don't wanna just have a boring office job thats for sure!!!
For my past I don't know what to tell you other than that I have been on exchange in the US and lived there in Plainfield Illinois which is pretty close to chicago. This was probably one of my decisions of my life and I am planning to study in Australia for one year while I'm in college, because living in a different country just rewards you with so many experiences and you just meet so many new people :)

What are some of your favorite things?

I really like games and music (play the sax myself) but I guess I've already talked about those things on other threads.
I also do enjoy doing sport (not watching them though) and did cross country in America which kinda ruined running for me, because although not to being too bad at it, I hurt myself doing it and I guess I just feel like I ran enough for my life now ^^
I also love reading books (especially fantasy) and just finished reading the first book of the king killer chronicles. I'm also anticipating the next Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) book but I guess I still will have to wait for that some more time...


What's the one thing in the universe that you just can't stand?

I guess all the things that just make us not get along with each other, like greed, racism, egoism, stubbornness in the sense of not being open minded. All stupid things like that...
... and also Latin. Especially since I have a two hour test next week and I probably gonna/ or should revisit all the grammar and translate some stuff this weekend :(

What are you working on these days to make yourself a more amazing person?

-Getting off my butt and working out more often again
-And stop being lazy and finishing off my VWA (somewhat like a bachelor/master thesis, just that I have to do it inorder to graduate school) ... another thing I don't like (it' just too much writing)

And thats about it ... :)

@bsb333 KINGKILLER IS THE BEST HOLYMOLY. I've been waiting for that last book. The second one is even more nuts. Good choice.

Tell us about yourself. What's your story?

Hello, Bscotchers! I guess this is the best place to put my first post. I'm Krys, born and bred in the Philippines. I'm 29 and I'm getting married June of this year (yay). I'm a nursing graduate because (at that time) demand for nurses was sky-high and my relatives had this idea that I *had* to go to *insert first world country here* to have a better life (just so you know, my life is pretty darn good, if somewhat boring).

I'm not into sports and I know nothing about programming. Like I said, boring.

What are some of your favorite things?

Books, games, music, and anime/manga. Oh, and randomly non-geek-related, makeup.
Books - Neil Gaiman and Stephen King
Games - Final Fantasy series, Diablo, DOTA and League of Legends. Currently working on Shadow of Mordor while dreaming about Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Music - Nirvana, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters
Anime/Manga - Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto, Darker than Black, Noblesse, The Gamer.

What's the one thing in the universe that you just can't stand?

Prejudice.

What are you working on these days to make yourself a more amazing person?

I'm trying to get back into writing prose again. I used to be a pretty emo kid and wrote a lot of dark stuff. I blame it on my fiance.


Anyway, that's pretty much it. Oh, and I don't like bananas, but I occasionally use it for scale. (9gaggers will know)

@IsisEden? Welcome! And congrats on your upcoming wedding! Not liking sports or knowing programming doesn't make a person boring (in fact, being into either of those things has a proven track record of making people boring!).
