I have been on the Internet since 1990. We have had a computer in our home since 1983.
As I am a bit older than the “average bear,”
I lived in Hawaii and Guam for years, and spent over one and a half years underwater on a Boomer and a Fast Attack Nuclear Submarine, and spent some time on a couple of WW2 Destroyers.
I have a Mechanical Engineering Degree from U of Hawaii and a Masters in Materials Engineering from Cal Poly.
I worked as a Field Engineer for
General Electric. I worked in Power Delivery,
Large and Medium Steam Turbines, Large Gas Turbines, and Nuclear Submarine
Engines, in Hawaii, Massachusetts and Oregon.
I am a strong
advocate for people with disabilities and an expert on ADA standards. I am also a feminist and believe in equal rights for women. I tend to post mostly about science and materials science.
I laugh about everything and love dark humor, but really
don’t put up with Internet Trolls well. If you are a makebate or a mumpsimus you will be blocked.
Mumpsimus is an action by a person, or the person themselves,who adheres to a routine, idea, custom, set of beliefs, that has been shown to be unreasonable or incorrect.
Makebate - a person who causes contention or discord, just wants to argue.
I love all kinds of science, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Astronomy and lots of weird stuff like Nuclear Weapons, Technology of War, Failure Analysis, Weather and more. I also like art of all types, especially sculpture, photography, and anyone who can draw or paint.

I do not use Collections. I cannot move my posts directly from a community to a collection.
