    I've done a few shark dives and have been nibbled at by a six or so foot barracuda within the Bermudan atoll. On top of my thesis I will be assisting my adviser with a grant he received from the state of New York regarding their artificial reef settlements. Basically I will be doing SCUBA surveys alongside acoustic data swathes to determine whether or not they are actually helping rebound struggling fisheries and endangered species.

    And I swam competitively, not SCUBA. :P You can free-dive competitively though. Come to think of it, you can spearfish while SCUBA diving which has its own competitive clubs (similar to fishing and free-dive spear/slingfishing). A lot of areas ban SCUBA spear-fishing though since it's very easy to wipe out an entire fishing ground within a single season.

    You two look adorable together. And in matching outfits too!

    ... Why I seriously advocate that we now have Pink NNG wifebeaters as part of our uniform.

    I stumbled upon this thread so I figured I'd write my first bio. I'm Devin, 21, and a senior in mechanical engineering at the University of North Florida. My undergraduate studies deal mainly with robotics and control systems.

    NNG is the first gaming community I have been a part of (outside of a game). I'm usually pretty quiet in teamspeak and also usually absent from most events. I would like to be a larger part of the community but due to school, work, and my girlfriend Allie, it is difficult to say the least.

    I love all things math, I have been playing guitar for about 9 years, and I have been playing video games since the very first Ace Combat and Armored Core. Giant robots and mechanical badassery that I absorbed as a kid led me to pursue engineering, even though during that time there was a rise of hatred towards video games due to "increased violence in children". Coincidentally, I've never been in a fight my entire life and I was voted "most friendliest" back in high school.
