In fact, I'm REALLY EPIC! Go on my youtube, I do tutorials, inventions and funny stuff! Here are just a few of them:
But enough about that. Now it's time to talk not about what I do, but who I am... I'm the moderator (AKA The_Moderator or TheModerator), and I'm actually a lot less intimidating than the name suggests: I got it after my sideline in computer hacking:
I ended up leaving my first school in a mutual departure agreement after I hacked the CCTV and register systems. I told them about the hack deliberatly so they could fix it, but instead they went into legal preceedings. I'm bound by law not to say any more than that, so don't bother asking please, you'll just get a (-_-) face in response.
The only other thing I will say on that matter is that I'm a reformed character now. I hold a respectable job with an excellent company, and I have no intention of ever doing anything like that again. The thrill was virtually non-existant and stress of waking up one morning to find all your files have been siezed (Including my GCSE coursework, which was deleted and had to be re-done two days before the hand in date) was not worth it. Again, if you ask me for ANY advice that I think could lead to ANY kind of computer misuse, I will not answer. I will NOT release any of my code on request.
Okay, so you've probably gathered I'm good with computers. By extension, then, you should know that most of the stuff I upload is CGI - Computer Generated Imagary. Again, I wasn't taught how to use any of this, I've had to figure it all out myself, so you'll probably be able to see the visible improvements that happen as I upload. I use Blender for most things, plus a tonne of hand-written scripts.
So, you've seen the good side of me, but now time for the more negative points;
>> I am a proud aromantic asexual. If you want to talk to me about love, romance, sex, fetishes - from what I can gather, DA is basically an unofficial meeting place for 'furries' - then please don't. It's not personal, but that stuff just bores me to absolute tears, and while I understand the human need for relationships, I can not see the sense in it. >> I suffer from both Autism and weight issues (critically undeweight five years running). Sometimes I dissapear from Da, FF, YT and a few others for a while. I don't like going into details, but if I don't seem to be very active, just refer to this point.
My dad is German and I know Spanish, so I will be able to understand you if you prefer to type in either two, however, it's been a long time (Last time I went to school in Germany was well over eight years ago) and any response you get back may have a few minor grammatical errors.
I'm not actually an artist or an author. I'm more of a mountain-climbing computer-programming 3D modeling rocket scientist who's into engineering and enjoys archery and mountain climbing with his camera in his spare time. But I'll try anything (legal and decent) once. Except celery. That looks disgusting...
If you like stories, Check out a few of mine at fanfiction.net, link is on my profile. Apparently (According to the user community) they're "Wonderfully Unique" and "Quite Funny". I'll leave you to decide.
I'm not saying I'm the best artist. Or the best engineer, or the best programmer or the best writer or the best modeller. But I'm almost certainly the best computer programming, modelling artist writer that I know. Which is something...

So, first in the AmazeBalls series (NB: Not really a series, nor is is about balls), all thing OUTDOORSY! I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm babbling, but I'm just so excited!
My main birthday present I got last week was a brand new, hand crafted, hunting knife! I did call the pics-or-didn't-happen rule on my previous post, so here's a photo of it (sharp thing in the center): fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net…
It's got a lion cast on the end of the handle, and a Perl, polished flush with the wood itself. The blade was made by one of the people in our village, and though the photo doesn't show it, it's immaculate, like, the swoop has no defects whatsoever! It's dull right now, but we've got stuff to sharpen this type of blade with- Actually, I'm rambling, aren't I? I'll cut short before I bore you to death about different kinds of steel used in the manufacture of blades...
Anyway, it's awsome, as in, so much better than my old one. Enough for me to actually take up traditional hunting again! But with what weapon?
A new bow, duh.
Specifically, I saw a MANGIFICANT one when I went to watch the hunger games! From what I could see, it had a custom open hand-molded plastic grip for the body - which appeared to be stained titanium or similar alloy - and for the limbs? Motherf**king carbon fiber. The current bow I have is just plain composite wood, and has limbs with a pull of 60lbs (For those that aren't into archery, the limbs bend which gives the bow it's power, not the 'string' stretching.) I can see the carbon fiber one being at least 200lb, which would easily double my range. Unfortunately, when I rushed to the archery supplies shop in Nottingham, they'd sold out of almost every bow with carbon fiber limbs. The limbs he did have left were all too big (I prefer a petite a bow as possible without some idiot making it compound.)
Apparently, by the way, the Hunger Games has trebled the amount of people undergoing archery training in my area, which kinda pisses me off, because they're probably getting mummy and daddy to buy them an expensive and quality bow that they won't have any idea how to use, when I could have it.
WHAT ALSO WOULD BE NICE, IS A QUIVER THAT DOESN'T RATTLE. OK, it's not so much of an issue that I had with the film as it is an annoyance, but in Catching Fire, the arrows Katniss had were in a back quiver (nothing ontoward there), but they didn't rattle at all. People who've been hunting before - I'm looking for comments from you guys, too, because I have yet to find someone else who's gone hunting with bows and arrows - will no doubt know how annoying it is to perfect a silent tread, then have it ruined by the 'CLACK CLACK CLACK' of arrows. Yes I know the one in the film had foam inserts, but said inserts must have been good to retain the arrows when she was scraping it along the ground, and release them with the lightest touch.
Carrying on with the Hunger Games, I enjoyed it, once they got past the first half an hour, which was rushed in my opinion. One of the few films that doesn't go too far with the romance, I was glad they finally showed something a bit more mature than someone pretending to be shot. The CGI is MUCH MUCH MUCH better than the first film, and, as always, Effie's, Haymich's, and Katniss' roles were all played to the maximum potential, I really found myself engaging with the film, especially as it was being shown in IMAX (A screen the vertical size of three houses stacked on top of each other, because f**k you). Apart from the bit where her quiver appeared to magically gain more arrows from nowhere.
So in short, a film to really identify with, good cinematography, excellent casting, excellent - though at times somewhat hole-y - plot, and all in all, a great experience.
