Seeing as how this is still alive... My name is Jake, but on the internet I am TheMadBoxer. During the mornings i work landscaping, but I get some great hours for great pay, so i usually get out of work around 2pm. My name comes from high school, when I still did MMA. some people would call me mad behind my back, and I liked the ring of it. I intend on joining the Navy this year, and am working on getting waivers for various injuries I sustained in the ring, and the medications I had to take to cope with them.
Planetside-wise, I started in the New Conglomerate, and still main my BR90 in VCO. But after a while, I got sick of their low skill level, and I began looking for other options including QRY, TENC, and DA. I found QRY to be elitist asswipes, and the others just didn't click. I ended up playing TR with VSDerp one day, and got the TS info. I hopped in and squadded up with him and Mustarde. I found the casual atmosphere among skilled players addicting and applied within the week. Once I get enough passive certs for Medic Tool 6, I may start maining TR/VS
So many of these image links appear broken for me and I can't view them =/
TechNecro here. I'm 27, male. Name Brandon Thompson. Born in Rockford IL and grew up in Southeast MO (the Bootheel).
I recently pointed out of my job as a corporate slave to Tenneco where I was a Utility (a do it all man). I did not work at corporate headquarters, instead I assisted in building struts. After dedicating the past 4 years of my life to this place working mostly 6-7 days a week, 10-12 hours a day I can say I am quite happy to be out of that place. On top of working tirelessly I have also been pursuing my BS in Computer Information Technology and was simultaneously taking 12-15 hours a semester, as well as summer classes and internships up until this past fall where I dropped out halfway through the semester, because quite honestly I'm pretty burnt out. I also took this Spring semester off and plan to begin attending again this Fall to finish my last two semesters.
I have a group of really close and awesome friends. I have always been really into fitness. I love lifting weights and eating right. I'm very enthusiastic about a lot of things and often take up more hobbies than I have time to pursue. I inline skate, ski/wakeboard at the lake, dabble in violin (I have acoustic and electric violins), experimenting with nootropics, power stilts, 2009 Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R, a stack of business/investing/technology related books, and most times have a range of 10-20 tabs open because I love reading technology/health/science related articles. I like to build computers and play video games, and I do not own a TV and have not watched TV in years.
I'm just going to put a link to some random photos I stuck in photobucket for anyone who cares to look.
Literally all of the pictures of me since age like 13 have her in them. I don't take pics that much, but she takes them a lot

No picture yet (maybe later if I feel you gents are worthy), but here is my quick bio.
I'm 22 years old, graduated from the University of Rhode Island in December 2012 with a B.S. in Marine Biology. In the fall I will be attending Stony Brook University to earn my Ph.D in Biological Oceanography using a combination of computer/statistical modeling and acoustic data gathering to elucidate temporal and spatial variations in different species of zooplankton.
During the interim between Dec. 2012 and August 2014, I have been working and continuing to work as an instructor for the American Red Cross. I teach CPR/First Aid/AED/Emergency Oxygen for the Professional Rescuer, Water Safety Instructor, Swim Coach Instructor, Lifeguard Instructor, and OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Trainer. If all goes well, I can add Small Craft (Boat) Safety to my repertoire depending on if the state wants to actually do its job and validate my boating credentials.
I am an avid SCUBA diver; swam competitively since age ten through college; I love everything science and nerdy; and I love gaming. Specific to Planetside 2, I began playing in November 2012 as a lonewolf. I didn't actually join any outfit until March 2013 when I was invited into The 4 Aces (4ACE). From there I took on a lot of leadership roles, ran an in-house fantasy league (for Planetside 2, and it was fun, go figure), and it was an all-around good time. I created a Twitter handle, met dudes like VSDerp and Mustarde, and after a while of feeling unsettled in 4ACE I made the transition over to NNG.
So are you going to actually get in the water and swim with the fishes? I saw a video on YT recently of a guy almost ending up in the mouth of a whale. It was pretty crazy.
How do you go about competitive SCUBA diving?
