A bit of FAQ first:
-[You:] Why don't you have a pic of yourself as default picture?
[Me:] I just want people to try and see thru my perspective - a mix of obsession with weapons, Imperialism and some lyrical verse, rather than my face, which is likely to tell you nothing anyway.
-[You:] I told you something completely irrelevant to anything with what is written on your profile, yet quite clearly stating that it is, which in turn made little sense, so how come I didn't get a reply?
[Me:] Haven't you just answered your own question?
-[You:] How come you didn't reply to my message stating "hi", "+10" (the former being quite frequent, even though I have ratings disabled, LMAO), "*insert five-word-max nonsence here*"?
[Me:] Copy-paste posts, receive copy-paste ignorance.
-[You:] My likes and dislikes show a clash between us two, what to do?
[Me:] You can still always message me. I may have conservative views, but I am not orthodox either. As long as I can see your sense approached with intelligence, and reasonable basis, consider yourself spoken to. Honestly I will not ignore that, because I quite frankly enjoy intelligent debate, putting my own views into challenge.
-[You:] How come you are so anti-drug?
[Me:] Simples. I saw the real effects of it, and I am not touching that shit with a sixty foot pole.
-[You:] How come you disabled ratings?
[Me:] Simples. They're probably the dumbest thing I have ever seen a social networking site to ever vomit. And so out of this we have either -
A) People begging pointless numbers.
B) People who downrate them just for sake of pissing them off.
Therefore - I refuse to be part of it.
-[You:] Why do you keep strawmanning me? Ow, my e-feelings! >XO
[Me:] My mentor (blessed he be) always strawmanned me, all the time. Strong and based critics make for good lessons, rich with knowledge. I am not going to do that without having reasons at hand anyway, and as I mentioned - there is quite some intelectual value in it, so you might just wipe your tears off and pick it up, rather than being stubborn and just ignoring that. I am going to answer all technical questions, with pure technical honesty. Don't expect me to be supressed about it.
-[You:] OMG, you like imperialism and fascism, you must be nazi!
[Me:] Contrary to your poorly based statement, the term "nazi", is a shortening of word "Nationalsocialist". Nationalsocialism is a political belief of encouraging domestic production and self-sufficiency. Anyone who is at least at slightest a patriot can be considered "nazi", so I suggest you either change the subject, or quit that crap. As for fascism, fascism rose from word "Fascio di Combatimento", what from Italian translates as "Combat Group". This was Mussolini's focus ideal - Government being ruled and controlled in the same structural way as the military is. That means - one commander-in-chief, and static chain of command, ready to replace eachother in any turn of events (such as loss of "Commander-in-chief"). Corporate state and other follow-ups were other non-related Mussolini's beliefs, but this is the core of Fascism. Fascism historically was quite evident already in Ancient Rome (Ceasar, Caligula, Nero, etc) and Greece (Solonus of Athens, can't remember anyone else right now, LMFAO). As for modern times, it would be Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, Franco's Spain, Pre-war Romania, Soviet Union, Communist China (most notably during the term of Mao Tze Tung's rule), and my tongue could drop off, by trying to name them all.
And now with that got out of the way, let's carry on, shall we?:
Remember the tank trafic rules:
1) If it is within your gradient: You ROLL OVER IT!
2) If it's not, you blast the hell outta it, and ROLL OVER IT.
3) If that doesn't work out, then you go 'round, sulking.
YES, I DO GRAPHICS AND EDITS, JUST FOOKING ASK MEH!
I don't ask for anything in return, just that if you upload the graphic/picture I made to VF, you tag it to my profile.
Anyways.... I live, I think (I assume that I do xD), I do what I can do. Few phrases, which somewhat define me:
"Push it harder."
"In the absence of orders, go find something and kill it. (R.I.P., ole fox)"
"The death looked straight into our eyes, and we looked back at it, and then the death have turned away."
"You want war? You'll get it"
"My faith is my strongest weapon.".
"Learn to obey, before you command."
As a person I adopted Nietzsche's philosophy and some may consider me rather immoral, but that is because they never read Nietzsche. Haha. I've a rather negative view of my own generation, and even more negative view of generations younger than me, because likewise mine, and likewise these ahead of me think/thought they are "the shit", but they eventually become to grey nobodies. I deem it pathetic how these generations ask the "philosophical" questions and make new philosophical ideas, but they haven't read any great philosophers, really. I am also upset by the fact, that with exception of philosophy and politics students hardly anyone of these generations knows about Epictetus, Nietzsche, Plato, Socrates or Aristotles. Care to prove me wrong? Go ahead. I appreciate intelect above all else.
Other than that, I just live my otherwise rather boring, stuck up life (which I quite honestly hate being stale, but what can I do, aside curling up and die?). As a person I come off as sarcastic, bitter, coarse and a little harsh. I don't mean to, and I try to change that about myself, but I just warn you now, and I do apologize ahead of everything if you feel offended because of my wording.
Some other character-defining facts:
-I am a spartan (no, NOT like location. Just look up the definition).
-I am a technocrat.
-I am a celibate.
-(As you possibly figured by now) I am an elitist - I expect others to be strong, but so do I expect that from myself all the more. If you want to know more about me, you can either message me now or click this sentence. If you read this far, then you may want to read the dissection of my heart. You know the drill now.
And to let me know, that you have ACTUALLY read my profile, post "This knight is twisted, his armor are shiny black." anywhere together with your comment.
Some names you may know me as (and if you question any of them, it is up to you, when you will choose to believe it or not, I am not going to roll over my head, just for sake of trying to prove to you):
Helmet - Old username from OGame.
Ashkael - I had a character named like that, and felt quite related to his questions.
Ghost - Because I sneak better than anyone else. :P
Captain - Because if I care about you, I will never turn my back, and will do my best to get you motivated.
Venom - Because I sting. Deep. And hard.
Ego - CTFO, do I really need to explain this-one?:P
SAM - Cut-down of my name (Simon). And also because I sting.
Hug Robot From Hell - Apparently I am just that nice.
So what is it gonna be?
It felt like I should update this, and be just getting to the point:
My main fields of interest are as follows:
Weapon design (mainly, and primarily AFVs, I bear little interest for anything else, but yet I may just barf something up, like ocassional aircraft or light arm)
The whole "how stuff works" thing
Logistics, maintenance and supply, Tactics, Strategy, Platoon-Batallion level command
Terrain and environment studies
Injury and illness treatment
Individual combat/self-defense solutions
(Personal) Morale Management
Well, I guess anything combat related in one way or the other.
Some things I like doing in particular:
Sketching (I DESPISE colors with passion, as far as it comes to handmade works)
Writing (sci-fi and political/military fiction in particular)
Information/intelligence gathering (it is a large part of weapon design anyway. If you like people ranting for hours on, I guess that is the topic you might try striking up with me).
Any "big" cooking. I dunno, large tasks get me excited. I am not going to say that I am good at it, thou, since I am NOT. Could be worse I assume
Sound editing/composing music (nothing to show so far, and likely never, I might just never feel inspired enough, or sounds never fit in for me)
Photography. Landscapes. NOT people. People piss me off, they never do as I say.
I also am a sucker for a good ballad.
Some qualities I find admirable to find in other people:
Presence of discipline
Ability to hear in
To-the-point and honest people
Morally steady people
Those who use their heads, not crotches for thinking
What I really DO NOT like? Let me start then:
Armchair Generals/Soldiers (hopeless morons)
Lack of Reason (probably it should prominently proud itself at the top of the list, thou)
When people put trust in emotions, rather than a cool head
Anything what makes me: fight, think, live, cry, laugh, decide, kill, do.
