After all of my posting, I remembered that I did not introduce myself. I am the Meat Tenderizer, and yes, I actually chose a username that has relevance, because I have tenderized quite a bit of meat. My work may be blue-collar, but I take great pride in it.
I am politically conservative/libertarian worker who currently attends college part-time (without relying on federal aid of any sort). I don't have a lot of hobbies besides casual gaming and politics, which is a serious interest for me. Also, I might as well throw in college football (GO BLUE!!!) as the only sport I really care much about.
In addition, I might as well add that I use to post here under a different username but that was so long ago I hesitate to bring it up. I thought I would be totally honest with everyone about that.
