Introduce Yourselves, MAKE FRIENDS...

Post  Cool Egg Sandwich on Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:16 pm

Hey guys as the title of the topic alludes, this is where we can get to know each other a little bit better. So just leave some basic information about yourself, your interests, and how you got involved in NationStates.

I'll get started.

Name - Dylan
Age - 22
Occupation - Student / unemployed bum

As far as interests go, first and foremost would be the 'real sticky-icky-icky Ooh wee'. I used to enjoy playing World of Warcraft, but I haven't played in several months. I also used to play guitar, but I haven't been able to muster the desire to pick it backup, although I was moderately proficient. I watch way too many movies for my own good, but I guess it helps in being able to reference stupid crap about Steven Seagal movies et al. I study History at California University of Pennsylvania, and I really enjoy European history moreso than other areas. I suppose if I were to have a 'specialty' it would be late 19th - 20th century German history.

I initially got involved in NationStates in 2006, but I had a hiatus from around 2008-10. Near the end of this past year, True Horde (Mark) reminded me about NS, and the rest is history...

If anyone wants to hit me up and chat about history, or ask me about my political views feel free to send me a telegram in-game, or grab my e-mail address on my profile page. I hope to learn a lot about my regional brothers and sisters. ;-)

Name: Ron
Age: 24
Occupation: Ph.D. Candidate/teacher

I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA, but now I live in London, ON Canada. I received a Honors Bachelor Degree from Duquesne University in Philosophy and a minor in German. I am currently a graduate student at The University of Western Ontario working toward a Ph.D. in Philosophy. My area of specialization is History of Philosophy, but specifically Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy. I plan to write my dissertation on Plato and what he thought about the nature of language.

In my free time, I enjoy (rather masochistically) learning new languages. My current project is learning French. I am just beginning. In general, I like all things nerdy, reading, writing, etc. But, I also really like beer and wine, probably too much. One vice is not enough, but two are too many.

I used to play NS, like eggs, a long time ago. So far that I do not even know where to begin in order to re-found that nation. I was reminded of the NS and here I am.

Hello everyone,
My name is Lauren and I am 24 years old. I graduated from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA with a bachelors in Psychology. I am from Massachusetts, but right now I am living in London, Ontario. I currently work in a really crappy call center job and I have been looking for a new job for quite some time now. I got involved in NS because my husband, the philosophy guy with the goofy David Hasselhoff flag, told me about it and said I should check it out, and I ended up really liking it. I like to read, travel, and go sailing in the summer. I'm really interested in art (I studied some art history at Duquesne and also enjoy drawing and painting) and I have learned a lot about philosophy from hanging out with my husband and his friends. I don't play any sports, but love watching football, hockey, and going to baseball games. I really like trying different kinds of beer and wine (I am also happy just drinking crappy beer and hanging out with friends).

Oh, and I am also a fan of Harry Potter.

Lauren, I am so glad you decided to post here. It's really great that you decided to start playing NS with Ronald. I hope you'll voice your opinion when we hold our 'Constitutional Convention'.

Yup, like Serenel said, this is an open forum where we can discuss just about any topic. While I won't sit here and talk about how awesome genocide is, I think you get the point: free flow of ideas are encouraged here.

Good to have you, dude. I am glad you chose TDS. Fun time abound.

Hello my fellow Canadian!!!

Post  Architektonikon on Mon Feb 14, 2011 11:32 pm

John Stewart Mill was confident that we should allow everyone, no matter how extreme, to voice their opinion in a public setting. Although he was from the 19th century, he would say that neo-Nazis should be allowed to speak their mind and this would allow for the public to see just how ridiculous their views are; rather than censor speech. In any case, no one should worry about their opinion. BUT, I urge that you must argue for your points, as opposed to... well... you know... cough cough religious extremism cough. In seriousness, welcome! (I am you neighbor to the south, from London)

Hey whatsup A.G. ? It's great to have you on the forum...

I was just wondering: you mentioned that you were interested in literature. What kind of literature do you like? Who are your favorite authors?

You also mentioned that you were a soldier. Where are you stationed? What branch of the military are you in? I don't really know much about the military, but I study history and I have had many family members serve in the armed forces.

Great to have you buddy, hope to hear back from you...

Welcome Curtis, it's great to have you here in The Dirty South. I am so very happy you decided to register on the forums, introduce yourself, and join the debates in our 'government'.

I have a question, is your nation "United Midwest" ? I'm just wondering what nation you have in the region.

Let's see...I'm Tami (short for Tamara), I'm 28, Married (my husband has no interest in NS Sad ), live in Chicago and work as a Librarian. I started playing NS in March 2003 but it's been an off and on love affair.

My interests are as diverse as Jane Austen is to Dr Who. Did I mention Firefly? I'm a Browncoat. Laughing With all the resources that a library has to offer, let me just say that my tastes are quite eclectic. My musical tastes are also extremely broad though they have become more deeply rooted in the Classical/Opera genre over the past several years.

We have so many other things in common, I can scarcely begrudge this. He does look over my shoulder and offer witticisms at times.

Army Reserves. My unit drills in Greenville. Battalion HQ is in Fort Gordon. As to what kind of Literature I like, usually Sci-Fi or Fantasy, though some Historical fiction, if not too ridiculous, can be interesting. Authors? Richard Adams, John Ringo, David Weber, and James Rollins, to name a few. And I know how you feel, Serenal. Putting ideas on paper is far from easy.

Yeh, I know plus it costs 4, and its hp is only 1. Architektonikon, our resident philosopher, used to be 'professional' MTG player. He enlisted me and True Horde, and we played for some time, but Arch won thousands of dollars playing MTG.
