But, seriously, while that is actually a big part of my life and I love it, there's more to me than that. I've spelled out the "how" in "What I'm doing with my life", if you're curious. Otherwise, you can check out "Snapshots" below, as well as the other profile categories, to get to know the Mike behind the mic.
Also, I'm not paying for my account, so I can't see "Who Likes Me", so if you "Like" me, please send me a message. If you don't know what to say or you're really shy or whatnot, you can just copy and paste this paragraph, and I can take it from there. :)
Anyway, back to the good stuff!
(Quick views into random aspects of my mind, life, and personality)
-When asked in physics class to list the 5 greatest inventions of all time, I wrote down only one: "Sliced bread". The teacher was not amused. I was.
-Poorly choreographed movie and TV show sword fights annoy me. The ones where the person puts theirs up to block the shot before the shot comes, but then the other person comes down right where the blocking sword is. It's like they're not even trying. I mean, how do you expect to win a sword fight by constantly hitting the other person's sword on purpose?
-My name on here is MiketheFirst because, back in high school, I would always add a Roman numeral I to the end of my signature, because: 1) it's accurate 2) I could. The "the first" stuck, and as such, I am Mike the First.
-While I understand why, it disappoints me that Apollo missions that aren't AS-11 & AS-13 are forgotten or ignored by a large portion of the public and that astronauts who aren't Neil Armstrong or "that guy Tom Hanks played in that movie" not only aren't household names, they aren't even in some modern US History books.
-I think the Billy Joel music videos for "The Longest Time" and "Uptown Girl" are randomly hilarious.
-Sometimes I have a mustache and beard. Sometimes I don't. Same goes for hair. (Seriously, I've been known to randomly shave my head for no reason other than "I felt like it".)
-I don't currently own any witty/humorous t-shirts, but part of me hopes to change that soon. The other part of me thinks they're a little over the top and don't serve my personality well.
-I give *amazing* presents.
-I collect autographs, artwork, books, select comic books, and NASA memorabilia.
-One of my biggest pet peeves is people who use "ect" instead of "etc".
-I have a habit of taking the labels off bottles & recycling them separately. I just think the bottles look better sans label.
-For a partnered persuasive speech in my university public speaking class, I convinced my partner to argue the age old question of whether The Bob Newhart Show was better than Newhart. It went over with the class about as well as you might expect.
-After my first year of college, I won a coin toss with my roommate for a poster of movie quotes that was hanging in our room. It's AWESOME.
