I joined the site because I thought I would try something different and expand my horizon/meet people that I wouldn’t ordinarily meet in my day to day routine. I don't to take myself too seriously and frequently use self-deprecating humor just to get a laugh…OK, I’m a bit of a meat head. In the past I played sports (Rugby, Football, etc.). However, now get my exercise in the gym, and when I can get to more exotic places, I scuba dive. Would like to get to Australia to dive the Great Barrier Reef real soon. That doesn’t mean that Asia and Europe are out of the question. Bottom line is I still want to spend my days doing as much fun stuff as I possibly can.While my work is with computers, I am just as passionate about history (and politics); it just isn’t how I earn my income. I like the classic movies, with a good story. Most of the stuff produced today is rubbish. A movie that is all special effects and lacks a compelling story just isn’t worth the time. Most of my free movie time is spent watching old movies, but I still enjoy a good epic when it comes out. Like all guys, I like my toys…but not really a video game person anymore. Mostly power tools to build stuff. However, I tend to break stuff just as often as I fix it.
