a tinkerer and math head since as far back as I can remember, counting and adding when I was three, removed my own training wheels when I was five, learned to solder helping my Dad fix the line cord to the radio which I cut in half with scissors because I wanted to see if they would cut things besides paper. My punishment was to fix the cord myself, learning how to solder in the process.
Had and used up every Lincoln Log and Erector Set kit there was, made all the race car and jet fighter and and rocket models my mother would buy me.
Then he taught me how to true a wheel in fifth grade before I could ride his big old 1946 Schwinn that had a wheel out of round. Been doing my own electronic, mechanical, and tinkering to improve and fix things ever since.
An overcommunicator for sure, I am so _not_ into assumptions when even if its redundant and probably unnecessary I love to check info and fact with people to avoid any chance of confusion, and the later problems and interpersonal conflicts that can arise. I've learned well the saying, when you assume, you make an ass of u and me.
