(Sorry I haven't replied but I've had trouble access borrowing my sisters laptop which I use to access the internet.)

Thanks. 12.gif

I'm kind of embarrassed, but always happy when someone appreciates what I write. To be honest, I've had a lot of practice with having an older brother, who is also a big time geek and worked at MIT as a Unix administrator (almost as as much of a geek you can become other than perhaps being Dennis Ritchie/guy who wrote Unix), and with him being six years older I found it easier to amuse him by saying funny/crazy things then having to fight him to prevent getting beaten up. It is hard to say exactly what type of humor and/or viewpoint I have, but I believe some people have said I have a bit of dark/cavalier humor as well as a weird sometimes out of the box way of seeing things.

It is funny because I believe my brother eventually started imitating me to make his own friends laugh and when I hang out with his friends he gets slightly jealous since it is almost as easy for me to make his friends and acquaintances laugh with my humor as he does when he jokes with them.

To be honest I wish I could use this talent (if it really is a talent) to make others laugh and perhaps occasionally teach people something, as well as help me make a living.

I enjoy your musings as well, as long as we stay away from the topic of nuclear power. L13.gifL

you could start your own blog or if you're rather charismatic make youtube videos. you're well versed in writing but you'd have to break down your long winded sentences to make them more accessible to a broad range of audience. also doing that sort of creative stuff is pretty exhausting. you might have thousands of ideas now but always keep in mind that there will be a time when you scooped your initial pool of ideas empty... coming up with new ideas on a regular basis is necessary to keep a fan base. creative work can be pretty tough and lead to high levels of stress especially if you have to keep deadlines and such. that's also a thing one should keep in mind.

That's what I have been trying to do lately, with the exception of trying to answer technical questions that anyone posts on the forum. I realize that there ISN'T enough statistical information to prove there is ANY additional dangers we don't know about when it comes to nuclear power plants (although this is also true of ANT other power industry) and add to that some of the phobia and health risks cause by the additional stress when incidents happen, I now believe that it is a given as to why nuclear power needs strict regulation and some of the reasons it has such a negative public perception. Although it is plausible for some of this to change with better educating the public, better studies to understand the dangers, better technology, etc. we are not there yet and the industry has a lot to do to get there.

I've thought of doing that myself, but I fear my voice is almost as annoying as some of the Indian professors on YouTube I have watched; however I believe a blog and eventual YouTube channel might be possible. After spending over half a life time day dreaming, studying philosophy, imagining inventions, and other things to come up with ideas, I have to say I have made a VERY DEEP reservoir of ideas to draw upon and would be happy if I managed to tap into even HALF of them. My biggest handicap is that I have ADHD, acute chronic pain, and a general lack of any resources (other than a laptop that I have access to) to do that much. However since I'm not working right now, I have a lot more time on my hand than when I was working.

And again thanks, your encouraging words as well as the words of the other forum members makes me realize that my efforts don't go unnoticed. beercheer.gif

Over then next couple of weeks I will try to collect some of my notes and other work to review them and to get some input for the other people on the forum.

If I could, I would like to be a meat puppet for some noble cause or at least something that was somewhat noble. coffeetime.gif

Here is an interesting video on the subject:

5 Things Shills Don't Want You To Know
(ie. bots,sock/meat puppets,etc )


While using such tactics are obviously deceptive, as far as I know it isn't any more deceptive than the social engineering tactics used by hackers from time to time. However, it is obvious that someone shouldn't use duplicate accounts or other stuff on this forum without consent from the owner and others running it.

No, Octo is correct they are two different people... quite different.
There really isn't that brand of shenanigans here, thankfully, but certainly there are venues where that kind of thing goes on.
