  1. Just added a tanker endorsement to my CDL.
  2. I haven't seen this yet, so I decided to make it. I'll start. Currently SAO and Burn Notice. Thoughts on either?
  3. Yeah, a commercial truck.
  4. I am proud to say, in my first 40 min of driving a truck, I only stalled 8 times. 6 of them were when going uphill.
  5. A while back, I ran a thread that would feature a different forum member each week. At the request of Mestiv, I am starting a new one. Every week, people will vote for a member to be featured. At the end of the week, the person with the most votes will be sent a PM of questions. I will then post their response to the OP of the thread. Here are the questions/requests: 1. Provide a picture (if you are comfortable with that). 2. Provide your real name (if you are comfortable with that). 3. Which book is your favorite and why? 4. What have been your main contributions to the community? What are you known for? 5. What made you join the forum? 6. How many hours do you spend on the shard on a given day? 7. Describe your fondest Forum experience. 8. What is one thing that Brandon does really well? 9. What is one thing that he could work on? 10. Which fictional character is the best representation of yourself? 11. Any additional comments, whether it be about your life outside of the forum, favorite food, your website, or...anything! As always, ideas for new questions are welcome. Calderis 1. Provide a picture (if you are comfortable with that). No problem. Here's one from Dec. 2009. My profile pic was made by a friend based off this picture. I don't have the piercings anymore, as my son liked to grab shiny things when he was tiny And speaking of my son, here's a more recent one with him This one is from this past December, and my boy is happy and awesome. 2. Provide your real name (if you are comfortable with that). Jon. 3. Which book is your favorite and why? This is hard. This is really hard. The Hobbit for spawning my fantasy addiction... Mistborn TFE for introducing me to Brandon on a random supermarket shelf, and Stormlight Archive for being my current outright favorite. 4. What have been your main contributions to the community? What are you known for? My Limericks thread? My freakish ability to get more rep than I deserve? My self esteem issues? I don't feel like I have a good answer here. 5. What made you join the forum? Well this was apparently my first post from back in 2014 So I guess, I saw people discussing, thought I could help the conversation progress, and didn't see a reason not to. 6. How many hours do you spend on the shard on a given day? I feel uncomfortable answering this question. I don't really know? I access the site exclusively via mobile and a tab is always on the Shard in Chrome. I get free wifi at work... So I guess I'm not on the Shard for the 7 or 8 hours I sleep. Yay addiction! 7. Describe your fondest Forum experience. Honestly, probably the back and forth conversations @Extesian and I get into. It's fun helping flesh out someone else's ideas and vice versa 8. What is one thing that Brandon does really well? Character driven stories. That's why I got hooked right away. 9. What is one thing that he could work on? Focus? It doesn't really bother me, but characters like Lift and Wayne grow larger and larger in his stories because of the fun he has writing them, rather than their importance to the plot. 10. Which fictional character is the best representation of yourself? I have been known to have freakishly good, (and less often freakishly bad) luck. For a few years a couple of friends actually called me Mat. So I guess I have to go with Matrim Cauthon. 11. Any additional comments, whether it be about your life outside of the forum, favorite food, your website, or...anything Other than to thank all of you for making and contributing to the best fan community ever, no.
  6. You need to have your sword. It should be sheathed, but you should have it.
  7. I have successfully acquired my commercial learning permit.
  8. I passed the general knowledge CDL written test today.
  9. "Those who stand for nothing, will fall for anything. "
  10. Update: because of the fact that he could have a seizure at any moment, and the fact that lots of heavy equipment is constantly being operated, and we've constantly got trucks coming in and out, it has been determined that he presents a hazard, and has therefore been let go.
  11. Motor greese spills are the worst.
  12. A couple weeks ago, I found out that a friend and coworker had a brain tumor. Today, during his break, he passed out in a chair. Had to get rough with him to get him up. Company owner ended up driving him home. We suspect it might've been a result of his medication.
  13. I've been a bad thread owner. Things have been busy recently, and I haven't updated the archive recently. In a few days, I plan to, and hopefully that will spark some life in this thing.
  14. If anyone is in Wyoming, I'll be driving up to Laramie on July 4 to launch fireworks.
  15. Guess who tried to take an exit to fast and went off road. Guess who hit a sign with a mirror.
  16. How good is your sig? Can you come up with the best one? Lets find out. Rate the one above you, see what others think about yours. Go!
  17. In the Math and Science thread, we had an idea about expanding our services to the creation of believable worlds. Direct any questions about physics towards myself or @Glamdring804 and chemistry towards @Pagerunner.
  18. I've heard good things about the Wings of Fire series.
  19. Last Saturday, I climbed Mt. Bierdstat, my first 14er. Left the parking lot at 8:00, summit at 11:00, began the descent at 11:30, and got back to the parking lot at 2:00. On the ascent, that averages a 1000 ft elevation gain per hour. (Pics underneath spoiler tag.)
  20. Another one? Guess it's not a dying breed after all. I miss those forums.
  21. You got this @Steeldancer!
  22. In August I'll be starting my first year of college. I'll be going into engineering.
  23. An extra long night at work followed by a power outage that can't be fixed via resetting circuit box. Exactly what I needed tonight.
  24. What would happen if Nightblood was left in a shardpool? Or a highstorm?
