    my working knowledge is better than my theoretical knowledge/artistic ability......my wife loves my working knowledge on how stuff works and how to make something work with minimal supplies....ive got a 50 year old Swedish press im keeping running with parts i can find or build via supplies at the local small town hardware store.....she likes that stuff, a new press that size is over 100 grand.....

    but when it comes to problem solving in the house she dont much care for it.....im darn good at making something work, not so good at making it work and look good....she insists on "showing off" my solution to a slow drain in the basement....problem? got a house made in the 50's with the drain pipes on one side of the house two small for modern day washers and their quick dump of water.....my solution? 35 gallon garbage can with a small diameter hose coming out the bottom going into the floor drain......it works and has worked for 3 years....completely solved the problem, and its out of sight in the laundry room......however the wife dont like it cause it dont look professional, course it dont, only took me 20 minutes and $20 in supplies to fix it
    yeah sometimes people might misinterpret me for a street person or street thug :P but from where im at Filipinos around my age and older are really doing street dirt, not that im glorifying it but im in SD and yes many roll this way. and I can say i grew up in the slang side but i dont drown my self in such things , i do my best to educate kids and even adults on how things are and what they could be, I like educational conversations with any 1 i encounter, not that i talk like a book page 247 but in my opinion besides living to the fullest of life what more is there besides that is the quest for knowledge, haha the eternal struggle. im not too good with handy man house work, I just never took an interest on it so far

    I am also called the "smart one" in some of my classes and on the topic of the "smart one". I feel it is given to the ones that have a naturally good memory. I may have a very good memory, that doesn't mean I care much about using it. I maintain a 3.8-3.9 with out studding at all. I just do my homework and I can pass the tests with a 90-100 most of the time. I do hate school more now because each progressing grade is just getting easier. To much review from 8th grade at the moment. There is also one major weakness, I can't remember names or put them to faces. I can see your face and know who you are, but if I hear your name I can't think of who it is. (I dread handing back papers for that reason.)

    As for what forums I visit, I go to ant farm and myrmecology forum, venomlist for the bees and wasps section, and I read some threads on a few others.
