According to some online test, my personality type is INTJ, make of that what you will
Halt! Proceed with caution,
For every lie will cause distortion.
Now you should stop, proceed no further,
your every move will cause disorder.

RedOmega Stasik has a talent for...things.
Clockmaker ...and he tamed them, with the old magic trick of looking them straight in the eye and then dumping them in a deep pit way out in the woods where nobody can hear the screaming
Zephronias I THOUGHT YOU WERE A GRIZZLED OLD RUSSIAN EXPAT WHO MOVED TO THE US DURING THE COLD WAR
Zephronias NO! YOU ARE SALT-N-PEPPER, HUNCHED SLIGHTLY FROM AGE, BROAD BUT NOT CHUBBY SO MUCH AS JUST WELL-GROWN. YOU HAVE A GRAY, SLIGHTLY SCRUFFY BEARD AND A LONGISH COAT.
Zephronias YOU USE A CANE TO HELP YOU GET UP FROM THE KITCHEN TABLE IN YOUR SMALL BUT COMFORTABLE HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF AN IDYLLIC COUNTRY TOWN. THINGS ARE NOT NEW, BUT THEY ARE FAMILIAR AND OF GOOD QUALITY, ALTHOUGH NOT THE PRETTIEST TO LOOK AT.
Zephronias YOU GO TO THE MARKETS ON SUNDAYS AND FEED THE CLERK'S DOG BISCUITS.
Nemosyn You're a thirty something man who used to be somewhat fitter before you got married. You aren't particularly good looking, and you don't talk much under normal circumstances. After a couple of drinks you wax, if not eloquent, at least elaborate. You probably should shave more often. People like you when they get to know you (except the ones who hate your guts). Flirting goes right over your head unless it's accompanied by a blow to the head with a heavy object marked FLIRTING.
civilwaractionfigure Yes, people look like pigs. You get it, Stasi-K
civilwaractionfigure Your work is magical. What word play. What context. What thought structure. Wait, are you Russian?
civilwaractionfigure Can you help me with my presidential campaign? Do you have any dirt on anyone?
civilwaractionfigure Sorry to ask so many questions, just very excited
civilwaractionfigure Not really loin-wise but brain-wise.
all of the above statements are noder's views and are not reflective of Stasik (or are they?)
Countries I've been to:
- USSR (do I even need to list the other 5?)
- Kazakhstan (not intentionally)
- Finland (accidentally, rangers had to be paid in Vodka)
- Australia (every state and territory!)
- New Caledonia
- Vietnam (stop off)
- China (if you count Hong Kong as China, also a stop off)
(I'm not well traveled, I haven't had the money, nor time (and hence the drive), but if I won the lottery, I'd probably acquire a travel bug)
Animals I've seen in the wild: hedgehog, naked mole, rabbit, hare, fox, echidna, wombat, koala, wallaby, possum, kangaroo, emu, goanna, lizards, deer, panther?, platypus, snake, turtle, tortoise, penguin, dolphin, shark and seal
