Yeah same deal.... been here a long time, but never wrote an intro thing so...I am atec.  But I don't  actually go by that in real life.  In fact this is one of the only places I go by that.  I came up with it a few years ago and signed up on a few forums with it, but that's about it.My real name is ben, but  I go by my middle name thomas (I go by tommy or  tom though   whatever, no one cares about names on a  forum....I am 14 years old at the moment.  In about  3 months I will become 15 years old, by some   sacred magic I don't know much about called teh birthdais.I am somewhat of a computer nerd, but not really.  I use linux and I know quite a  bit about computers and play some adventure games and such, but I don't really fit many of the stereotypes that would make someone a "computer nerd"  it's just not my style of life, lolz.If you knew me, you would know that I  am seriously into skateboarding (more specifically, what n00bs would call "longboarding") and music.I am really into music.  I seriously might not be alive still if it wasn't for music.  Lets just say that 11-13 years old sucked really bad and if it wasn't for my green day obsession at the time, I wouldn't have had much to live for.  (A scary thought, really)  Music is art.  Beautiful art that can vary so much.  I listen to everything and anything.  My favorite genre is probably (good) rap.  rap is amazing when done right.  not only the sound and "flow", but the lyrics behind it can bring up powerful, well explained points with passion and I have a lot of repect for that and get a lot of enjoyment out of it.  My favorite band of all time is Mew, and I don't see that changing any time soon.I has a stroke at birth and   survived a major concussion at the end of 2009, but somehow I am alive and completely fine aside from having a terrible memory.  In fact most of my friends don't even know that and there is no reason for anyone to know, because I luckily wasn't  effected badly by either.I haven't really ever dated anyone, because in middleschool I was like the only person who thought it was pointless at that age, with all the drama and stupid people.     Drama  sucks.Actually though, I  actually am sort of dating a really amazing girl right now, and have been for like 2 months.  it's  not "official", but I don't care, that's just another one of those    stupid highschool relationship things IMO.  it will be "official" someday soon hopefully, but that wouldn't really change anything.I Believe in    God, Jesus,  The Holy spirit, the bible, etc.... but I don't really like to classify myself as a Christian.  I feel like a bit of a hypocrite for saying that, because my main problem with Christianity is all the denominations and nitpicky organized religions.  If everyone believes in the same basic stuff, they should all be able to worship together and get along if they feel like it.

Not much else to say... but I just realized I have never showed a picture of myself on these forums... that will have to change at some  point...

Nice to meet you, Atec! I didn't post photos of myself on the forums for quite some time either actually. I eventually did, but it took quite a while for me to get to that point. I felt exactly the same way back in middle school about relationships. I saw so many peoples, guys and girl's alike, getting into relationships back in middle school, and then two weeks later that person is crying by the lockers or something, having just been dumped/cheated on/whatever. Really sad. It was the same in high school, just longer than two weeks. Honestly, I've always seen myself as a lot more mature for my age than I should be. You seem to be really mature too, atec. That's not a bad thing either. It's definitely a good thing.

Yeah.  I see myself the same  way. I don't know if it's a good thing to think I am mature for my  age, but it seems like an ok mindset to have...

Yeah... that is why I have never really bothered with relationships until now.  If this doesn't work out, I am probably not trying again for a long time.  It really seems like a waste of  time  99 percent of the time.

I am starting to talk less intelligently....and christmas break is over with school tomorrow so I need to get to bed.

see you tomorrow, forum people :P

:suffer: The last time I was drunk at a bar I was hitting on one of my brother's friends, professing my love to him. ;] I was soooooo sick the next day, I haven't been drunk since (and that was about eleven months ago!)

This all just makes me that much more proud of never having alcohol... But I gotta say, you do certainly have some adventures when you're drunk lol.

I'm about a fingernail length's worth of Irish, does that count?

Yeeeaaahhhhh...there is that. I don't think I'll ever be publicly intoxicated again, though.  That was too embarrassing!  One of those things that still makes me cringe when I think about it. :X

Well, I also have a genetic ticket to be an alcoholic, and I had a life-changing (and life-scarring) experience in the fourth grade. So yeah... And any amount of irish counts lol. I'm third generation irish, and about 75% irish, with 25% german on my mom's side of the family.

I couldn't tell you really what percentage of ANYTHING I am.  My mom is a bit of everything--English, Native American, German, Irish, Canadian, etc.  And Daddy was adopted, so it's a mystery on his side. :(  But Dundas (my last name) is a Scottish name, so I always say that I'm Scottish.  FRRREEEEEEEDOM!

Never seen it. ;D  Funny that it reminded you of a movie other than Braveheart, since that's what I quoted. ;)

LOL! ;D  Aw, well, I'm not saying Braveheart was the greatest movie of all time (that honor is bestowed upon Moulin Rouge), but it's definitely good.  And based in Scotland, with my peeps. :)

Welcome! :)
Are you familiar with the King's Quest series at all?
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Welcome muns! I hope you enjoy the game :)

I'm curious, how did you find about us in particular? We've had some articles in a few German gaming magazines and some DVD covermounts of the episodes as well, so I'm mostly wondering if it was from that or something else.
