Here's an interesting idea I got from another forum I am a member of. Let's go around and tell a little bit about ourselves. Truth be told, I'd be interested to know some of the demographics of the site. Here's mine:

Name: Mike
Home: Kennedy Township, PA
Age: 20

Job: Formerly sales at Flynn's Tire & Auto Service currently under contract to work on a digital marketing project for our partner E Solution Professionals. My office is in the Flynn's Tire retail store in Carnegie (Scott Township), PA

Hobbies:

- Cars (wish I knew more)
- Video games (wish I did more)
- Computers (again, wish I knew more)
- Amateur Audiophile
- Assistant Scoutmaster in the local BSA troop.
- Love the outdoors (don't get to enjoy it enough).

What about you?

...hmmm you could add to this by actually placing yourself on our zeemaps map in the following thread.

http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/61-general-discussions/46064-frapper-replacement-map.html and follow the instructions below.

1) Go to the ZeeMaps - Subaru Outback.Org Owner Location link.
2) Click Additions > Add Marker.
3) Enter the info you want to enter for yourself. *I* used the "click on a map location" option to place the marker. You can also set the color of your marker if you want to. You can add a picture if you want to.
4) Click the "preview" button to make sure it looks the way you want.
5) When it's right, click Submit.

Let's see where everyone is...direct link is in my sig below...bolded

I make my living managing a BioSkills (cadaver) Surgical Training lab, in San Francisco.
Very cool. I put myself through college and university with a part time job as a coroners assistant...assisting autopsies, and doing "removals" from hospitals, homicides, suicides, accidents, and the like in Toronto and Barrie Ont. Canada

It IS interesting work. I'll bet being a coroner's assistant was a fascinating job as well!

You have easy access to New Glarus and still bother to brew your own? That's like trying to counterfeit 100 dollar bills with spare equipment from your gold mine...

Ok not really but I feel better after writing the joke.

I'm a former mechanic as well as failed musician and actor. Now I'm a technical analyst for a worldwide technology provider. It's an incredibly dull job that I happen to be very good at so I'll be doing it until I die. I'm not wealthy so my hobbies are a bit stunted as of late.

-Music (listening, playing, and recording)
-Movies
-Books
-Sports (everything except baseball)
-Food
-Yard work (it's surprisingly cathartic)

Hey everyone....

I'm Sean from Montclair NJ. I'm 44, and work in NYC as a computer programmer. I've got 2 kids, 2 Outbacks, and 1 wife. In my younger days I did a lot of work on my cars... these days I don't have much time to tinker. I have been considering picking up a used Jaguar XKR in the hopefully not too distant future. I'm also an amateur photographer (blog is at dustandrust.com ).

The forum here is one of the most informative and friendly ones I've participated in... thanks to everyone here.

Yup! I have seen things that I would not ever have seen...and have seen some things that people just shouldn't see. :gasp:
