    Suppose I'd better introduce myself!

    Current art: Aikido (white belt, about to grade to yellow)
    Previous arts: Tae Kwon Do (Green Belt), Kenpo (Brown belt, 1st)
    Location: Exeter, Devon
    Age: Never ask a lady such a question ;)
    Other Hobbies: Adult Instructor with the Royal Marines Cadets in the city, so teach everything from engineering and first aid to Fieldcraft and Map Reading
    The day job: Mechanical Engineer with a local agricultural company

    That's about it really. Got into Aikido recently after needing something to do one night a week after issues with a now ex friend. Enjoying it so far which is the main thing!

    Not mad, just mildly eccentric. I'm allowed to be being a female engineer :cool:

    In my experience everyone who's studied too much math and physics is from mildly eccentric to completely mad. :D
    But at least you can go around telling people "Trust me, I'm an engineer!" :D

    studying maths and physics has certain taken me to one stop short of Barking thats for sure :D

    My things of more saying 'Meh! that won't work' when seeing people do DIY or trying to build things :evil:

    I'm blaming the boiler suit but in fairness you're going to be the last to know for sure ;)
    What do you engineer?

    agricultural stuff mostly. Grain driers, conveying equipment and things like that.

    I'm the one sat in the office designing the machines and swearing at AutoCAD :bang:

    I do however own a boiler suit and safety boots....and fetching the look too.....not.

    That's actually surprisingly accurate. The longer someone studies abstract mathematics, the more their social skills seem to degrade.
