    Tell us more about yourself

    Just wondering what the people behind the stables get up to for a living and do to relax etc.

    I myself live in Australia and am a university student. I've been for far longer than I anticipated, started off in an engineering/science double degree, and gradually moved towards environmental science.

    I've worked as a tour guide for the Australian Institute of Sport, and been a casual sales assistant at a departments store and a hobby store (Games Workshop). I also worked as a crowd controller for many years, running security for concerts and festivals. It was pretty fun, but I've had to give up working nights. I was a paintball referee/gun technician as a weekend job for many years too. Currently I work at a science museum, which is pretty awesome

    For fun I play Magic the Gathering and the odd bit of D&D. I seem to have a rather unhealthy obsession (for my wallet) with collecting cards I dont use and building paintball markers. When inspiration strikes I also like to convert Warhammer miniatures, but fat chance that I'll ever finish painting them :P I'm also planning the next stage of my watercooled PC build, which should be fun

    Funny that, I'm from Melbourne.

    Was working overseas a few yrs ago, currently back home in Oz, but hoping to go overseas again if I can get a good job posting. I don't like staying cooped up in one place all my life.

    Only have one stable of the same name, so I don't know how some managers can keep track of so many different glads, it'll be a headache for me if I tried that for sure.

    Everyone calls me Buzz and i'm from Illinois, i work construction building pole barns (I'm the Polebarn Ranger). When i'm not climbing on a wooden jungle gym hitting my thumb with my hammer i am a musician, a family man, and lazy.

    I have 5 stables (I didn't know that there was rules about how many stables we could have legally) and i'm currently trying something new. I'm gonna kill the glads off in 4 stables and only play one stable per month in a leapfrog fashion to focus on strats and rebuilds. I think not having 9 of my guys competing for 40th place will help me and everyone else stay interested also. I however, do predict that the SevenSeas will rise soon and start giving you boys and girls a heck of a time trying to keep your glads away from the healers

    With one life to live, does it make sense to be unhappy about anything except for having one life to live?

    Team Ziggler

    Been a professional mechanic for about 6.5 years now, ASE certified in steering and suspension and brakes. I live on top of a bar with one of my best friends with whom ive lived with in total for about 4 years. Zombie is another close friend of mine. If im not playing video games, im passed out in my recliner. Love all types of music, mostly into industrial, hard electro, things of that nature. metal as well, but as the years go by, thats kind of phasing out. Im also a completely unaccomplished artist. Im a rage specialist, always trying to break different aspects of the game.

    anyhow, if anyone has any car related questions other than, "my car doesnt run, whats wrong with it?" feel free to ask

    im totally not good at this kind of stuff.

    Hey Everyone,
    I live in Baytown Texas, which is just east of Houston. I am 34 years old and married with two ACTIVE boys ages 7 & 8. I have been married for over 11 years to a beautiful Mexican girl. Unlike alot of folks here I have never been a "gamer" This is really my first game to get into. I work a rotating shift schedule 4 on 4 off rotating between days and nights. They are 12 hour shifts. My job is an Operations Supervisor for a Dewaxing plant in one of the largest petrochemical refineries in the world. I am about to get to the 12th year mark of employment, YAY!!

    For my hobbies, geez where do I start. When my wife (a bi-lingual kindergarten teacher) and kids are at school, I constantly train for tri-athlons, so I am either swimming, running, or biking. Also I train 3-4 times a week in Jui-Jitsu and MMA. Also enjoy playing golf, when my schedule allows. When I do play I maintain a single digit handicap. Then the rest of my day starts when school ends and I spend the rest of the day helping the boys with there homework, getting them ready for their extra curricular activities. Then after that help maintain the house in some semblance of order. So yes I'm exhausted when I go to bed each night, but I would not have it any other way.
