About me

Industry Internet
Occupation Network Engineer
Location WA, United States
Introduction Nothing will turns a man into a crusader for the rights of free men like trying to be a gun owner in the People Republic of Massachusetts. If you have to classify my political leanings, I'd say libertarian with vestigial conservative leanings. Massachusetts made me conservative. Thinking about it a bit harder and being in and around Seattle made me small-L libertarian.
Interests Shooting, Sci Fi, RPGs, Dancing
Favorite Movies 300. Saving Private Ryan. Serenity.
Favorite Books Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Charles Stross, Alastair Reynolds, Terry Pratchett.

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?

I would have researched the origin of "poop deck", and consider those that find "poop deck" risible as being willfully ignorant, as the meaning of the phrase is available within seconds of research. Anyone that takes offense at this would find that I am skilled with a rapier, but more skilled with a pistol and in no mood to engage in fair fights.
