What's up Forumosans,
I think I'm hitting a tipping point where FAME and RICHES will start flowing like snot out of the nose of a three year old on a frosty Milwaukee morning. And I, in VERY large way, have these here forums to thank.
I won't name names or anything like that, but the forums have provided as a very useful tool for me to learn new things and meet awesome people. Pretty much ALL of my writing skills are a derivative of things I've picked up through frequent posting. I am very grateful of the experiences and people I've met that are DIRECTLY related to my frequent interactions with this forum.
OK, I'm going to say one name. A HUGE thank you to jlick for picking up on my almost UNQUENCHABLE thirst for learning and turning me on to economics. I LOVE that stuff.
OK, and one more... to Tigerman for being a Daoist OG... and Hobbes for also dropping knowledge and taking me golfing that one time... and... I better stop... OK and to Mother Theresa for hooking me up with that Thich Nhat Hanh book which I already had a copy of, but THAT is the kind of stuff he was always hooking up... To EVERYONE that's ever attended a Game Club session and been SMACKED by the MIGHTY HAND of MILTOWN gaming MAGIC... to Andy B for also dropping MAD knowledge on a young kid trying to figure shit out... to the Friday night beer drinking crew... to my wife... to Taiwan and the people there... to the noodle cooking lady around the corner... to Alleycat for hooking me up with a job after I got out of the hospital so I'd have something to do... to Gus, Anthony and Chirstina for making it happen to continuing to make it happen... to Yellow Cartmen for schooling me up on the PiMP game... to Magdalicious for adding all sorts of flavor to life... to Frostfox for being DOWN... to Tetsuo to providing the LULZ and letting people know the Innerwebs are serious fucking businesses... to Adoa (Paul Manning) who took me under his wing when I first landed and was a shitty (but fun
) teacher and employee and schooled me in the ways of Taiwanese Living (as a foreigner)... Tash for letting me rant to her about all of my mad thoughts and not telling me I was crazy (too often
)... the Taverncaptain for ROCKING... Man... I could go on and on, but I have to get ready to go. :P
I was there for five years and ran into SO many people who were SO helpful and I truly thank everyone. I might be jumping the gun a bit, but I doubt it. Things are starting to happen really fast and I have REAL people backing me now (not just my imaginary minions of mayhem
Here's the most recent (yesterday) happening: http://100percentfreshc2.blogspot.com/2 ... uture.html
If I can ever do anything for anyone just drop me a line. [my forum name]@gmail.com
I hope this doesn't look to self promoting as I genuinely wanted to say thanks to the forum.
peace love and chicken fingers!
oh and to jdsmith for letting me teach at his school and also schooling me at teaching (and all things life.)
I know people are going to get left out, but TRUST that I haven't forgotten. You might have to wait for the book.
