Hi there. 

Some may know me as Killerofthesky. I was a rather frequent visitor to the forums in 2011 and 2012. Since then, I've graduated college, started a career as a metallurgist, and married my fiance of 3 years. I now own two cats and a roommate. I've recently gotten back into anime after a necessary hiatus to finish college. 

My first anime was Speed Racer, but it doesn't really count since I was 3 at the time, and probably couldn't tell you the difference between Anime and Tom & Jerry. I was reintroduced to anime in elementary school by Sailor Moon, and again in high school with Inuyasha and Fullmetal Alchemist. My real love of anime started after that, and I've been reading manga and watching anime ever since. I've been to a couple of conventions, but tend to stick with the 2D world.

About My Anime List:

I rate on an arbitrary scale, depending on how I feel at the current moment, so ratings are liable to change on any given day. While I may stall things, this is usually because of school or work related issues rather than me not liking the anime. It is rare that I drop an anime (at this point, it's never happened) as I try to finish anything I start. There are some I will not watch; do not try to convince me they are worth watching. Anything with more than 200 episodes is going to sit on the back burner for as long as possible because the large episode count is daunting. (Or in the case of Crayon Shin-chan, baffling) I am constantly looking for new and interesting anime, so the Want-to-Watch list is constantly growing. 

About my contributions:

You may notice I've also done quite a few reccomendations. I'm currently working on building up my review count, as well. 

Any Other Questions:

You can ask my secretary, Sunako...

 

Or you know, post a comment on my wall, whatever...

I am considering going back to the academy to get a degree as correctional officer and move up to internal affairs.

If the laser is doing the carving it would not have the same properties, just the visuals. The layered metal bar with added twist welded together with counter rotating bar and later tempered would be much durable than a solid steel block with the same tempered treatment. The automation of the whole process was what I had in mind but never mind me, I think of insane stuff. :)

If you don't know a few things about a subjet so broad it still doesn't make you pseudo-anything it's still a valid degree.

Yes a guard, for now.

www.paul-binns-swords.co.uk/pattern_welding.htm < I just find that amazing. Your workplace sounds awesome, what do you mean pseudo-metallurgical engineering, what is pseudo about that? 

Also math-smart is legit smart, everything is math.

Hmm My story.

Was in the uni for three years becoming a teacher of chemistry and geography couldn't finish on the third year so applied for an extra year (successfully) but was drafted in the military for eight months after which returned to uni. In two months saw the downfall in jobs as a teacher and called it quits at the uni when I got a job in prison, worked a year and was sent to defense academy for a year, finished that and now I'm back in jail :D working not serving time.

At one point I got interested in blades and properties of tempered metal, can you tell me is it possible to automate pattern welding or is that something that is only possible by hand?

Also the chemistry side of me would like to know how water-like molten metal behaves? :)

/sorry for being a nosey bitch

Engineer; you must be smart then. What kind of things do you do at the steel mill? I imagine pools of molten metal like in Terminator 2.

Dealing with information is dangerous work, I like the idea.

That sounds scary, are you in the information business? :)
