Thread: Hello

  1. #1

    Default Hello

    The mandatory questions, things everyone wants to know about you:

    How did you find CS? Referred by a friend.

    How did you choose your moniker? Areas of research.

    What do you do (other than read CS)? Academia, social media, and living the good online and offline life.

    How many time zones have you lived in? At least 2. More than that depends on how long I have to live there for it to count.

    What are your sports loyalties? "Go Aggies, go Aggies, hey, hey, hey!" In all seriousness, I've attended USU, U of U, and BYU, and so those are my sports loyalties in approximate order.

    Are you looking forward to wuap's welcome question and what do you think it will be? Yes, but I can't even venture a guess.

    Welcome, Geo. To whom do we owe the referral fee?

    Who do we have to thank for your recruitment? Given events of the past few weeks I hope it wasn't your mission president.

    Is that some geology/archaeology interdisciplinary combination?

    Ouch bottom of the totem pole. However I'm guessing with that grouping none of your sports loyalties run incredibly hot?

    Seems like Wuap hasn't been on the ball with these questions lately.

    That would be SoonerCoug.

    Yes, geoarchaeology is its own subdiscipline, although I also have worked in both fields separately.

    That would be correct. I actually attended several games at USU and some at U of U, but even though I've been at BYU the longest I have never gone to a single game. >> << For professional sports, I do follow the Utah Jazz though. :P

    Do you handle the heat better, or the cold? I hate the cold, but my wife hates the heat.

    Welcome Geo!
    For your sake I hope you are at a top research university, publish in prestigious journals, and not participate in any press conferences about it!

    If you are indeed still female, I am also guessing you are single.

    LOL!!! Yes, I'm very female. It's too bad you don't know any of the many women out there who are scientists and into nerdy fandoms.

    That would be incorrect.

    To bad, I think you and Commando (besides the fact that you are female) would make a great couple.

    That depends on whether she'd be willing to cede her half of the closet to Commando's shoe collection.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Somebody's still angry that he got exposed in the 90s rap thread.

    Yeah what would that be like to work with female engineers that are nerds. I guess I will never know.

    If you're still posting in a fortnight, I'll give you a question. Until then, we'll see if you can hack it here.
