Thread: Intro

  1. #1

    Default Intro

    How did you find CS?

    I lurked for a long while on cougarguard, then cuf, and now here, figured I would stop being creepy and actually introduce myself.

    How did you choose your moniker?

    That's a good question. It means "Rocketman" in German. lol

    What do you do (other than read CS)?

    I'm a psychologist by trade. I am into backpacking, hiking, outdoors stuff; I like to read good books; I like to eat, mostly meat and cheese; I waste time on the internet; play the occasional video game.

    How many time zones have you lived in?

    2. Mtn and Pac

    What are your sports loyalties?

    BYU football comes first. NFL- Raiders NBA- Jazz MLB- Braves EPL- Liverpool

    What do you like about CS?

    I like the quality and variety of emoji available.

    What don't you like about CS?

    Same problems that exist in all message boards, but I like CS anyway

    Are you looking forward to wuap's welcome question and what do you think it will be?

    I am excited for it and if one is indeed asked I anticipate something vaguely inappropriate

    Do you pee in the sink?

    I have peed in many places, including the sink. The chamberpot era was underrated by many.

    Did you ever consider an alternative career path?

    Probably. I'm sure I did.

    When your kids get older, will you do drugs with them in order to teach them a responsible approach to drugs?

    They'll figure it out. Good growing up experiences.

    What's your standing in the church? (this was originally meant as a joke but it stuck)

    Haven't been much since I graduated from BYU. I went on a mission and was a pretty solid believer until 5-6 years ago. I don't hold ill will towards the church, lots of people I love and respect are faithful members, it's a good force in their lives. I do like to complain about the church occasionally. That said I find John Dehlin deeply irritating in a way I find hard to describe in an articulate way.

    Why are you so creepy? How long have you been lurking?

    Literally like, a decade, so weird

    Do you expect anyone to respond to this thread?

    Probably a lukewarm/tepid response if any, but I'm cool with it.

    Welcome, Rocketman! Try not to be sehr langweilig (pretty much the extent of what I remember from high school German).
    Prepare to put mustard on those words, for you will soon be consuming them, along with this slice of humble pie that comes direct from the oven of shame set at gas mark “egg on your face”! -- Moss

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

    Whatever you do, don't state that you had a negative impression of CUF that one time you checked in eight 6.5 years ago.

    Welcome. I have a degree in Psychology--very interesting field.

    In your decade of lurking, have you been stalking anyone?

    It IS an interesting field. You accumulate lots of good stories that you're unfortunately legally/ethically obligated to never tell. But yes, interesting field. To answer the stalking question, I am a student of the posts of several prominent folks here. I miss Tex. He was funny. I sort of miss the 12-page arguments in the religion forum, those were awesome, but seem to be very much a thing of the past. Seems a different community now.

    I will say that the religion forum on CG/CUF/CS was the main factor in me losing my testimony. Lol- j/k. Go Cougars!

    So Rocketman, is that an allusion to any Disney film or a new German indy rock song?

    Welcome to our message board. I hope you find your testimony again. It will enrich your life and you won't have to live with the shame associate with freeriding your fine BYU education.

    And sifting through these 12-page arguments you never were compelled to log in and put in your .02 or tell Il Pad to pipe down? That's some Dr. Xavier-level willpower.

    Raketemensch, please answer the following question, but carefully consider your response, as our future dealings on this site may depend, in large part, on how you respond to this:

    Now that the date in the "future" when Doc Brown brings Marty to October 2015 to do something about his kids has passed, we're left wondering about the ethics of time travel and knowing too much about our own futures. Crispin Glover thought he knew enough about his future to argue with Bob Gale and Bob Zemeckis over the implicit insinuation at the end of the first film that money=happiness, and found himself subsequently left out of the sequels. 2015 came and went without hoverboards, although we have these annoying, self-immolating "hoverboards" (with purposefully used "") everywhere. My college recently banned them over concerns about safety, and safety is something that never factored into the plot decisions surrounding the Nordberg character in the Naked Gun films. My son asked my wife this morning, "what's sperm?" and while we didn't tell him what it meant, I was reminded that when I first watched The Naked Gun, that's when I learned the sexual meaning of "Nice beaver!" after Priscilla Presley hands Leslie Nielson a taxidermied castor canadensis. I'll be in Canada in July; we've booked a house on the beach on Prince Edward Island and I'm looking forward to bird-watching for hours on end, hoping to catch a glimpse of the aurora borealis the way Sean Penn recently caught a glimpse of El Chapo, leading to his being caught in a more literal sense. Sean Penn is a famous activist, actor, and wannabe journalist. His acting in some films, like Malick's The Tree of Life has brought tears to my eyes, but sometimes he's made me laugh until it hurt, "My dad's got a great set of tools, man." But, before he was famous, he played Groovin' Larry in the 2nd installment of The Beaver Trilogy, as did Crispin Glover in the 3rd. So, the question remains, which installment of the Beaver Trilogy do you prefer, and why?

    Those of us who are writing German are going to feel pretty dumb if he doesn't speak German.

    Haven't interacted much with you but from my 8 years of observation you seem like a bad person. Just being honest
