Hello All,

Reintroducing myself to LEGO. Was a fan as a child but lost that fandome as an adult. Back again and loving it. So impressed with what everyone is doing. Keep up the good work everyone! I enjoy taking original LEGO Technic models and improving them. I also enjoy creating simple and complex mechanics out of nothing more than LEGO, and scaling buildings, machines, vehicles and getting down to the nitty-gritty math and physics that make such scaling possible. As can be seen by purusing my pages, I focus much more on function than form (looks).

You can also see that I am not conservative in my use of LEGO and other elements. I don't believe in modifying bricks, but if needed I will use other materials or elements to enhance my builds. I am a big fan of 3D printing and potential element configurations through such means. As of yet, I have not used any 3D printing elements, but will do so should the opportunity arise. I first am a builder....and it just so happens that LEGO is (in my opinion) the best medium to achieve that mean (that I know of). Should I find other means, I will use them. I have used some stainless steel parts for applications that require more strength. Below are some examples of my more unconventional use of parts for my builds. To reiterate; I NEVER modify LEGO pieces. I only use other things in the place of LEGO when TLG does not offer something I need.

BIG fan of third party tires. The largest tires TLG uses are the Power Puller tires, which are more expensive than RC tires and MUCH less functional.

My own air tanks to power my pneumatic inventions:

RC motor in Sheepo's Mustang....

Even creating a drinking cup out of PAB cups...lol....

Here is one of my latest creations. To my knowledge, the only Lego wheeled vehicle that can go through 7 inches of water.

Search through my pages and you will find loads if idiosyncratic but fun builds. Also, you will notice that I include quite a bit of a write-up on most of my submissions. This is not a blog, but I think it is fun to see submissions that include details of the builds not obvious from pictures alone. In addition, you will see some submissions that are more instructional or informative/opinionated in nature than others, giving a broader opinion of IMO what the whole hobby of being an AFOL is all about.

Flag Counter Flag Counter

My Flag Counter was added late in the game (years and years later) so it does not accurately reflect visitors to this page. It is still a very cool addition however!

Lastly, here is a little comic that I think nicely personifies my dedication to hobbies and all things out-of-the-norm.

We as LEGO fans are likely all very passionate about our hobby. But, not sure that categorizes us ALL as geeks. I am not sure what I am, because as with all scales like this, there is some error. I'm gonna go ahead with nerd (my username, after all... is nerds.. for... prez (president). Although I am super passionate about my hobbies, I also enjoy academics and see the term "nerd" as a melding together of passion and a desire to understand the odd and/or different. I have to admit, I was not aware of the distinction between the terms above until now, and other than IMO it being funny, don't really care about the distinction, so..... I don't think dork really applies either (my wife would disagree. She would think that I am all three). Therefore.... I surmise (see that academic term there... :laugh: ) that I am a nerd. I think nerds rock....... and if one were to run for president of the world I would vote for him/her. One that is passionate for his/her hobbies has to have a passion for life... right? One who has a love for the odd IMO can appreciate not only themes and commonalities in life of the uncommon and un-mainstream as well. Perfect qualities to have.....Nerds-For-President!

Which are you? Nerd? Geek? Dork? All of the above?
