Folks,

I am new here. So I wanted to say hello - but make it interesting. In the same way I am a fan of revealing drinking games, I am a fan of this question:

What is the most random, wierd and interesting thing about you?

For me, it's something I noticed recently after a bout of self-reflection, but any time I watch a movie that really effects me, elements of it start to take over my life in really weird ways. Like, when I was a kid, I really liked Mickey Mouse and all of his cartoons, and soon after my house started getting uncontrollably infested with mice even though we kept having exterminators come in and get rid of them on a bi-monthly basis. But for a while, almost every week I would catch a new mouse I found in the kitchen or wherever and keep it as a pet until my mom caught me and made me give it to dad to be "sent to the pound." Yeah.

What about you guys?

weirdest i wouldnt know what to say. The most interestig thing about me would be im probably the youngest installer and person to help some on 12volt. As i am only 16 only have a G1 (canada)  and hoep to get a basic MECP certification. I have lots of knowledge and hands on experiance with audio and alarm/starters. I have done over 20 - 30 car audio systems (some fiberglass) and maybe 40 rs/alarm ranging from all years and models. I have been doing this for a few years and it sure is a good trade. It fun too and i use my knowledge to help alot of people.

about me ehh... well im a perfectionist with a strong hint of ocd, if im working on my car i dont stop till its PERFECT, or if im cleaning/organizing its gotta be done right, ive once made every cup/plate/everything face the same way in a uniform manner, cuz it was all i could think about till it was done

thats not the MOST weird, but it is pretty weird when u see me doing it lol

also if u see me ull think ima punk/stoner/trouble maker

but im actually extremely smart and a computer geek, and ive never smoked in my life and im in the navy, i love surprising people with all that, i can keep and intellectually conversation going with people, and my IQ exceeds 130,

not sure if thats good/bad, ive not taken the test but my cousin did and he was 125 and i dwarf him in intelligence...(he argued with me that running 8-ohms is better than 1 or 2 on a sub, and that the amp will power it better, and 8-ohms sounds the best, im not a expert on it, but if im correct, ohms-resistance, the less resistance=more power, more power=good, RIGHT?) ive gotta print off the rules to prove it to him though, he refuses to admit that he is wrong by saying 8-ohms is the best to run a sub at... he wants me to get an amp that will push 1000rms at 8-ohms... yeah.. i laughed

and alas thats the other weird part of me, i can go on and on about nonsense that no one cares about and often mumble under my breathe about it when they stop listening

I've known people like you...      LOL

But we aren't full of ourselves at all, are we? If you want to compare IQ's mine is a nice even 148, and that is verified. I have taken the tests repeatedly, and this is an average. (It is generally higher than that in the morning, opposite the norm.) Apparently being a 130+ DOESN'T allow or require you to use proper grammar, capitalizations, words and what not. Be careful about what you call yourself, i.e. "computer geek", as some of us who really ARE computer geeks might take exception to that. How do you DEFINE computer geek? How about 7 PCs at home, and you use them all. I have a Domain Controller, running Server 2003 R2, my wife's computer, my laptop (on which, I run LiNUX), my NAS (network attached storage) with 2.1T of USABLE RAID50 space, my new HTPC, and two networked game boxes. I have wireless access that I can share with myself at the park, 200 yards away from me, and I've never been hacked! How about this: your job is a network administrator for TWO doctor's offices, (with a total of 55 users) one of them you administer COMPLETELY remotely. Your day is better than 14 hours long, EVERY DAY, your cell phone never stops ringing with people calling you for advice for themselves or "a friend". You can charge (and GET PAID) $125.00 per hour for on-site service, and be justified in charging rates like that... I was in the Navy as well, and was an electrician... I was a SeaBee for 7 years.

Well, maybe you shouldn't have laughed, because you're right... You are NOT an expert. Since there is NO SUCH THING as a "better" impedance, and I would personally agree with cousin, here. 8 ohms will allow the amplifier to run cooler, with lower THD, and improved damping factor, for better control of the woofer. From a true audiophile standpoint, 8 ohms or even 16 ohms is "better". More power, by virtue of more current due to low impedance, does not necessarily make a low impedance capable amplifer "better". 1kW into 8 ohms is not unheard of, Bob Carver has had quite a few amps that would do that, I believe he even made one that ran as high as 1.5kWRMS into an 8 ohm nominal load. I have rectified wall current for 170v pk-pk and powered amplifier designs of mine and others, for 3.6kW peak power into 8 ohms. It CAN be done.

Anyway, the weirdest thing about me? I have no internal monologue... I put everything out for everybody to see, and I have no reservations about calling things the way I see them!

wow haemphyst, ripping me apart ehh? lol i dont use proper grammar because its easier to type, and im usually typing at school and have to be quick about it. Were apparently not allowed on forums at school?

Im only 18, and everything but full of myself, if you knew my background/family/and the school i goto, you'd realize im one of the most intelligent.

But ripping me apart for no reason isnt exactly nice, escpecially since ive done nothing to you. Im only 18 btw, so of course your smarter and have expierienced more things in life than me.

you may call me as you see me, but dam, be a little nicer about it? or maybe just dont say anything? was it neccessary?

Must be an IQ limitation imposed to get Navy duty.  I told them I could swim and even sew on buttons all by myself, but they said the Top Branch should get me.  They took me into the Air Force and wouldn't disclose my IQ score....national security, I presume.

The weirdest thing about me is that I think this is the weirdest thread started by a new member in 12 Volt forum history.  It's weird because I actually thought about it.

The weirdest thing about me: I don't do something until I know it's going to be done right, the first time. Isn't that what you would call a trait of a perfectionist -or just someone really picky?!

At the age of 16 my IQ was over 135 -time and time again. I don't believe IQ should be a factor considered by the average person, so I haven't checked it recently.

Oh and Haem, it was loads more funny reading it in person LOL.

IQ tests are a great indicator that you know how to do IQ tests (I usually score 170+, BTW)

As far as interesting things? I haven't killed anyone....... yet, I am a skilled musician, live sound tech, and record producer, and can't wait to get out of this industry before I suffer permanent damage to my neck (cervical spondilyosis.... look it up..... and it is something we should all think about in this industry)

Weirdest things about C Renner...

I caught the garter at 5 weddings in a row(still not married though). 2 or 3 of those were staged by people who had observed previous toss and figured (correctly) that said garter would be placed immediately adjacent to the underwear of the girl (un)lucky enough to have caught the bouquet. One of those was photographed in a slide show, perfectly capturing the vivid look of horror on said girl.

I laugh when I talk about getting shot at by 2 RPGs.

I learn a ton of new information just about everywhere - except for a classroom.

Wierdest thing about Da Rat huh. My wrestling media collection exceeds 1000 pieces of DVD and VHS items. That might not be wierd, just sad. Let me try this again. My father was one of the best disabled athletes to come out of the country of Canada in the last  30 years being a multiple time champion in Downhill skiing, Giant Slalom (sp) and Equestrian all while being 100% blind. Nope thats not gonna cut it, thats not even about me really. How about this one, this is the ticket. I have many leather bound books and my apartment smells of Rich Mahogany (sp). Ya that one will work. ;)

OH, thought of another......

I work in a sporting goods store (Cabelas) and I don't hunt, fish, boat, camp, fire a bow and arrow, or ride a quad.

I really don't know why they hired me??
