Birthday Oct 13, 1973  
About Me 5'10" 200# Brown eyes/Beard. No hair; bald as a stone. Likes boots & jeans, likes Rat Fink shirts or half-sleeved Henleys. Chances are if i'm wearing a coat I'll have the sleeves pushed up to my elbows. I'm a blacksmith, so my arms and hands are sometimes a little funny-looking. Burns, wispy scorched spots, smudges.

All in all I don't look like somebody you'd meet everyday. Quel surprise.

I still think I'm buff (but it's all in my head).

I used to train with a Taijiquan guy, and also studied Shaolin. yeah, everybody says that. I might as well get a neck tattoo now.

I like to play with words, ideas, metal, anything malleable. Minds (if they're young enough).

What Gives Me Hope Kids who are more than just littler versions of the pricks who try to raise them. I have two or three in mind and they always make me smile.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by 1) disenfranchise lobbying for special interests.

4) Federisti

5) All elected officials work for free - no speaking engagements for 5 years after leaving office - tear down the mansions & use the space for a park, zoo, museum - greed, big biz, special interest speculation or vote-buying to be punishable by real prison terms - no effing country clubs. You too, Scooter.
