    <b>1.</b> I was doing a query on google and a thread popped up in my search results....I think I read for a few hours! The energy that people put into their discussions is contagious...glad to see so many neurons alive and well.
    <b>2.</b> This is my second visit.
    <b>3.</b> Los Gatos...hamlet of the Sillycon Valley in the South Bay Area of Northern California.
    <b>4.</b> 38 is just a number.
    <b>5.</b> What, me work? Actually I'm a casualty of the dotcom meltdown. Yahoo and Infoseek were my last haunts.
    <b>6.</b> I enjoy the rantings in the Human Science area since my degree is in Cultural Anthropology. The philosophy area is interesting as well, but I find myself impatient with matters of "faith". Long live the scientific method!
    <b>7.</b> Qualifications? College instructor, former archaeologist, protein chemist, couple degrees and way too many units beyond that, webmistress, MUDder, oh yes, and ISO certified.

    I just found sciforums last week. I was doing a search for discussion/debate message boards and this site showed up in the results.

    I just joined this morning, but I have visited this site every day since discovering it, just to see if the level of debate made it worth joining.

    It does.

    The Lost Continent.

    Roughly 26 years and 63 days. Roughly.

    I work for a large computer/electronics company. In my spare time I play video games; read; watch movies; listen to music; spend time with friends and family; swim; watch Formula One, Rally and Superbike races; and do yoga and martial arts.

    I find pretty much all the topics interesting. I love politics, philosophy, science and science fiction. I was shocked to find this message board that discusses all of these issues.

    Aside from being brilliant, witty and incredibly attractive, I'm no more qualified than the next guy.

    I have a cat named Ash, after Bruce Campbell's character in the Evil Dead trilogy. Good...bad...he's the guy with the gun.

    I saw the fnords.

    5. What do you do when you're not here (i.e. occupation etc.)?

    I have a terrible job. But in my area, there aren't that many jobs available without training. And since I'm a full-time student, nobody will hire me with the limited hours I'm available. So I've been working in my hometown Subway for YEARS. And beside studying...I spend most of my time there working myself to death.

    8. Do you have any pets? What are their names?

    Odd question, but ok...I have 4 cats and 3 dogs. KoKo is a Siamese, and she thinks she's the queen of my house. Bacchus is a giant grey cat, and his sons Elliot and Bubba (I did not name him) live with us as well. We took Bacchus in as a stray kitten. Dewey and Sukki are pure-bred Shar Peis...actually very annoying dogs. And Peter is a pure-bred English Pointer. Very beautiful dog.

    9. Give one fact about yourself not already provided in the above answers.

    About myself, hmm...that's hard. I'm not a very secretive person. How bout...I have a freckle right underneath my belly button. Haha. Oh wait...did you want something serious. Ok...I once ransomed a rubber chicken.

    2. How often do you visit sciforums?

    Usually a couple of times each day during the week, once or twice on the weekends too.

    3. What city/town/state/country are you in?

    SW Chicago suburbs.

    4. How old are you, roughly? (please answer the poll, too).

    6^2

    5. What do you do when you're not here (i.e. occupation etc.)?

    Team Focal for IBM Global Services. An IBM focal is basically a team lead but for a specific location. I'm also an excellent chef (if I do say so myself), an avid water and jet skier, reader, movie buff, accomplished sand-castle and snowman builder, and I like to streak through shopping malls (just checking to see if you're paying attention).

    6. Which topics in sciforums interest you the most? Why?

    Religion is where I post most often, I'm not sure why. It's something I've been studying for years. But I'm interested in everything.

    7. What qualifications do you have (if any)?

    Qualifications for what, Miss America? None.

    I'm a voracious reader (about 1200 pages a week, not counting work related, internet, and magazines). I also attended 2 Universities and 1 local college for a total of about 7 years but I didn't get a degree because I kept changing schools and majors. But I have lots of hours racked up
