It's YOU again! Always causing trouble, lol. I wish this hot, humid weather in the South would pass on... <_<

Sorry, I'm sure. I'll go outside, dig a hole and sit in it all afternoon. Then you'll be sorry!

Ahem.... my turn I suppose

I am a 30+ guy with too much time on his hands!!  ok not really.

I am a father of 2 kiddos, and a stepdad to a third.

Im and artist, I create paintings, drawings, computer graphics, murals, sculptures of all types, and now tattoos.  I am always ready to learn a new media!

Im a musician, I play the piano, Bass guitar, reguluar guitar, djembe, flutes, mandoline, and now the digerdo. Currently I play guitar, keyboards, and backup sing in a blues band called Lizard Lounge out of little ole Tularosa New Mexico.  

Tho I wish I could say that I was making a living doing those things, sometimes we have to get a real job. So my real job is teaching art in High School. I teach Drawing and Painting, Advanced Design, and Sculpture.

Im a wilderness freak as well and enjoy many outdoor sports, like snow skiing, Mountain Biking, Hiking, and Rock Climbing.

Im a nerd. love star trek, and x files.... tho Im not a freak about it.... hey I like to date!!

I enjoy Politics and follow the news closely.

And last I have a cat. (dont tell him I called him that... he is convinced he is a small tiger.!)

Oh and I like to Debate. Just like the rest of you.

I grew up in Minnesota in the United States and also spent several years of my childhood in Las Vegas, Nevada. My early life is fairly uneventful. I wrestled and ran track in high school.

After high school I joined the United States Air Force. I was active duty for 4 years and I am currently a SSGT in the Air National Guard. I was in Services, which mainly includes: Food, Fitness, Lodging, Rec, Mortuary and Honor Guard. I was stationed in Germany for 2 years and in Virginia, USA for a year and a half. I went on 2 deployments. One was to Kyrgyzstan and the other to the United Arab Emirates.

When I got off of active duty I went straight into the Air National Guard and worked as a Personal Trainer for a year while my wife finished school. When she finished school I enrolled at the University of Minnesota. My original plan was to get a degree in Kinesiology because that is where the money was at, but I soon found out my heart was in another place.

I first enrolled in the Religious Studies program. I have always liked History and Religion plays a huge part in it. I quickly found out that Religion is my passion. I also stayed true to History and enrolled in the Ancient Mediterranean Studies program. Because of the complexity of Religion and the Ancient Near East, I am also a minor in Jewish Studies and Philosophy.

In Religious Studies, my focus is early Judaism and early Christianity, but also Islam and other religions of the ANE. I have started with Judaism and the Hebrew Bible and plan to start the New Testament soon. I have also done a good amount of study in Islam.

I have been all over the place as far as Philosophy goes. I first started in the area of Theology and Moral Philosophy. I am currently studying Religion Theorists and Islamic Philosophers. Next I will be working with the more main stream “Philosophers of Religion” and the Greek Philosophers.

Other religions I have studied and looked at on a personal level are Mormonism and Ancient Astronauts Theory. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to Ancient Astronaut Theory. I have also started looking at the Baha’i faith and Atheism.

I am very big in getting a well rounded education and because I get paid to go to school I am taking advantage of it. I have difficulty with math and for that reason I cannot get too deep into science, but I still try to understand the basics. I have taken a number of courses in the science field but I will also be auditing many classes in the future. I found a little loophole where I will be able to audit 2 or 3 classes a semester! I want to take classes in area, especially politics and anthropology.


I was raised Lutheran Christian but I am now Agnostic, but I also consider myself an Ancient Astronaut Theorist. Don’t assume too much on these issues…it would be best to PM me and ask about it.

A couple years ago I got married. My wife is not only smart and beautiful, but is also my opposite. She is great at everything that I am not good with. She got a degree in Nursing (Theology Minor) from St. Catharine’s University. She is a devout Christian and has been on several mission trips, one of which was to Belize. She currently works as a nurse.

We just welcomed out first child into the world. His name is Ryker. Right now he is my main focus in life.

I am very qualified.  :rolleyes:  

I am a seventeen year old high-school student who studies miscellaneous fields..

I once called Ambulances "Uh-Oh Boom Booms", among other emergency vehicles.

I have read a wide variety of things from Modernism to Political Theory, Philosophical works, Psychological studies, and pop-up books.

I live in a very interesting family. My grandmother is a certified genius. My grandfather was a Full-Bird Colonel in the United States Air-Force; he taught the World War II Luftwaffe Aces how to fly Jets, and flew alongside the second best German ace from World War II; he was also a Carpenter, a designer of Rockets, did his taxes with an abacus, and apparently sold Buzz Aldrin his car so that Buzz could go to Astronaut training..

I have direct lineage to family members who fought in the American Revolution and the War of 1812, as well as every other American conflict - and I am related to James Madison and Benjamin Franklin.

Granted, I have no achievements of my own, other being told I have a lot of potential.

I will update this in about ten years.

I am 35+, a husband, and a father of two girls (one is a teen…)  I served for six years in the US Navy on the Fire Control systems (Phalanx, Close In Weapon System) and have had three tours in the Persian Gulf.  I have sailed through the Bermuda Triangle, been inside of the Great Pyramid of Egypt, jumped out of perfectly good planes, boarded hostile ships and survived numerous dinners with my in-laws.  

There are many “sensitives” in my family including my grandmother, mother, myself and my seven year-old daughter.  We have all seen things lurking about and heard voices.  Though many skeptical persons may think this is a form of genetic dementia, we have seen and heard the same things at the same time which is unexplainable.  I am, therefore, inclined to believe that there are spirits.  However, I also believe that most reports can be scientifically explained away.  I cannot fathom the possibility of alien life NOT existing in the universe as it is so extremely vast.  I believe in God, but not his followers and have seen what I can only imagine to be demonic possession and (believe it or not) abduction.  

I am an author of short horror stories which I write for my own amusement and post for free at Authorstand.com under my name James Conright.

I was born,Had heart surgery when i was a few days old.

I went to school and was never good at math,I was later told many other patients that had the same procedure also lacked in the math areas so i felt a little bit better about myself.

My parents,A large (in terms of weight) short fused control freak for a dad who wouldn't hesitate to smack me across the face for just about anything.And a Neurotic hypochondriac of a mother who hordes like threes no tomorrow.Both of them constantly expected failure from me and always insulted my intelligence and that had a huge impact on my self esteem when i was younger.

I've got 2 sisters,I only like one of them. Ironic that the one person in my house who i like is also a person who i hate.She's got a loving Bf,a good job and she constantly gets good grades.The other sister...I don't care enough to describe her.

Writing is one of the few things i find pleasurable in life along with animals and video games.

Never in my life have i had what i like to call a true friend.A person who would always be there when i needed help or somebody to talk to.

I'm still young and very cynical because of the terrible people who i let shape parts of my life,I'm hoping in the future that good things start to happen.But at this rate i don't feel like i will be around to see it

I am an expert on everything because I've read tons of comic books.
Now, if you believe I was serious when I made that statement, I have some real estate on Mars I'll sell you...
Seriously though:
B.S. in math way back in '76. Forgotten a lot, and didn't use it much in my employment, so not nearly as good at math as I used to be.
I love music (who doesn't?) particularly 60's and 70's R&B and rock & roll, also like Pop music (Weber & Rice, Rogers & Hammerstein, etc.), Mozart, etc. etc., blah, blah, blah. Also (I'm not trying to brag or be an egotist I hope, but you do want my credentials, right?) I play keyboard, flute and guitar, not affiliated with any band though I did sing in church choir until health problems intervened. I hope to start again in September. Yes, I am a Bible believing Christian.
Career wise, pretty much a jack of all trades, master of none. Have been a school bus driver, taxi driver, fast food worker, cashier, substitute school teacher, blah blah blah, yak yak yak (among many others)
Like studying foreign languages...it's a hobby...fairly fluent in French, German and Spanish, working on Korean, Chinese and Finnish, and some others.
I like reading and learning about cars, new and old, especially sports cars (I guess that fits about 90% or more of the male population doesn't it?).
I'm 61 and disabled by a scooter accident. Not looking for pity though, I just like to come to UM because I always learn a lot. I expect to learn more than teach...if I teach at all...
I'm going to try and quit soon to keep this short and so my head doesn't swell up and explode...forgot to mention I'm male though that came out above...military service in U.S. Army from '70 to '72 and '76 to '82.
I need to stop now...any questions please PM me. Peace to all.

Posted 12 May 2012 - 01:20 PM

Hi all, I'm new here so this has been an interesting thread for me to be able to get to know a little about my fellow forum members.
My creds are not half as impressive as many that I have seen on here, but anywho, here goes:
I'm Shelly (AKA airlybird, AKA airly).
I'm 40 years old, mum to three wonderful children, my eldest daughter is 20 and currently doing two degrees at Uni (business degree and teaching degree). My son is 18 and he's currently employed in a fabrication Engineering firm training as a design Engineer, and my youngest daughter is 10 years old.
I don't have any mega impressive qualifications, just 5 GCSEs from school (a loooong time ago now) a diploma in CLAIT, and my D.S.A A.D.I (Driving Standards Agency, Approved Driving Instructor) which is how I make my living.
I have two cats (Rooney and Sox) and two grand puppies (Buster and George) because they belong to my two oldest children.
I'm very interested in all things paranormal, I love debating a good conspiracy theory, and I really enjoy listening to other peoples views on things as I think that' plays a big role in how we continue to learn and grow as human beings.
I'm an avid reader with an eclectic taste in authors, but I have to say that Stephen King is one of my most favourate.
And I'm an avid rugby league fan (my son has played since he was 8yrs old and "almost" made it professionally, he was on a scholarship a few years ago with a professional club, he's played for Yorkshire, and he had trials for GB too, but never quite made it all the way) hence my "airlybird" nic.
And that's about it really. I look forward to seeing you around the boards :)

Hi airlybird and welcome to UM! I used to like reading Stephen King until I started one of his books which I felt had too much cruelty just for cruelty's sake, then I pretty much quit reading him, though I would maybe still like to read "It". I like your avatar, too, btw, very nice and original!
