What did you believe as a child out of 'kid logic' and later learn to be completely untrue? submitted by redoingit to AskVoat

obskera 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago

Seeing as children make things up, I always believed narwhals to be make believe. I even attributed the rare discussion on them as I aged to a running joke. I even lost a friend because I refused to acknowledge that they were real, and said friend kept googling narwhal images; he finally got pissed to the point he just said were weren't friends anymore and walked away.

I was 23 when I was watching an official documentary in my first quarter of college and they had a section on Narwhals. I had a genuine come to god moment when I realized I had been a complete tinfoil Narwahl doubter my whole life. Needless to say I had to explain to my professor why I suddenly turned pale and started sweating profusely. They thought I was having a medical emergency. "No, I just never knew narwhals existed." "OH GOD HE IS HAVING A STROKE CALL 911!" That was a long day.

Someone broke into my house, what can I do to get my sense of security back? submitted by obskera to AskVoat

obskera 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

Because someone already broke into my house, and I don't want to be liable (as my state would make me) if said gun was then stolen and used for nefarious purposes. I have extensive training and proficiency with firearms, but I am not willing to assume the risk until such a time that I could afford a proper unsafe/vault to properly secure it. And as a college student I can't just get my conceal permit and carry it with me (on campus).

as a side note, I did appreciate the humor with the serious of traps and levers haha. Think 35 copies of mousetrap would have enough levers and pulleys, or should I go 36?

What's your passion? submitted by Mr_Kame to AskVoat

obskera 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

My passion is understanding how things work. I have a weird learning style where I can't really learn things unless I understand the mechanics behind it work, the man behind the curtain if you will. The go to example I use is giving someone who has never seen a door a door hinge versus showing them a hinged door operating (not the best analogy, but I hope you get the point). Usually after the mental click, the aha moment, I can then implement the idea and even make improvements. I live for the "aha" moment because it feels like I am putting a piece into the larger puzzle of the universe. My parents were thankfully very patient when I was younger and pulling things apart, trying to put them back together.

The only problem I run into is as soon as I gain a grasp on most things I get bored and move on to learning something else new.

Just made my throw-away account... I'm liking this username submitted by scape_goat to introductions

obskera 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

That name is pretty epic, but I heard people blame most of the problems that are probably happening places on you, being the scapegoat and all. It was either that or you summoned tokens. Either way, cheers.

Greetings firebirdi, I am a bit curious about what inspired your user name. Is there a story to it?

my account is 3 months old, but I only recently started properly lurking and posting. submitted by obskera to introductions

I will try, I have been working out of the bike shop, so I will also have to get their permission first. :)
