I think more b3tans should add their pin to the B3ta map!

I'm a short gentleman who has reached the dizzy heights of 27 years old! I do IT monkery stuff in Chichester and do living stuff in Portsmouth.

Many of you may not know who I am, this is due to the fact my job stops me from staying in front of a PC for long enough to get drawn into a thread and chat to people. I don't visit this site at home.

I've never been to a bash, but really want to. Unfortunatly I dislike travelling and I can never see a bash further south than London. But when there is one, I'll be there.
I've always been impressed by the level of friendship on B3ta. I've always wondered, were you friends before finding B3ta or did you make new friends through B3ta? Me, I'm very bad at making friends. Me and a friend were thinking about sorting out a 5-a-side football match and realised we couldn't come up with 10 people we knew. Perhaps I could count some of you as friends when I attend a bash.

I would put a pic of myself here but I have no camera, scanner or pictures of myself. It's probably for the best, but I think there are pics of me on Facebook, but I'm not on that so I wouldn't know where to look.

Have a look at the only thing I've made:

visited 1 states (0.44%). Maybe I should see more of the world - but that costs money.
Paranoid Disorder:Moderate
Schizoid Disorder:High
Schizotypal Disorder:High
Antisocial Disorder:Low
Borderline Disorder:Low
Histrionic Disorder:Low
Narcissistic Disorder:High
Avoidant Disorder:High
Dependent Disorder:Low
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder:Moderate

The above did scare me a little.

» Workplace Boredom

Not me, but...
A teacher I knew in college was ex(ish)-navy. One day he regailed us with a story about how life on ship can get really incredibly boring. So, to lighten the mood many of the crew pretended to be riding motorbikes. Before they started to 'walk' the would pop out the kick start bit (peg?) jump on it and make the noise of the engine (Vroom!) then twist the right wrist with apporpriate sound effects and go.
Well, one day some top brass people were visiting and a crewman went past at high speed on his 'bike' (imagine the doppler effect engine sound).
"Stop that man!" said the surprised VIP to one of the people showing him round.
"Cerainly, sir," said the sergeant (do the navy have sergeants? I dunno - equivalent thereof. Anyways...) "Cerainly, sir," he said and kick started his own bike in persuit!

Length? An ocean-going vessel of some sort, so not small.

» Festivals

Another question that I cannot contribute to.
Due to the fact that I've avoided festivals like a mutant plague of zombies. Due, mainly, to the following reasons:
I hate people.
I hate loud noise/music.
I like sleep.

Nope, give me an old man pub, with a good landlord and some friends and I'm content.

» Workplace Boredom

Another thing I do
Is look through B3ta and check the profiles of users to see if:
A) They are female.
B) They are attractive.
C) Try and guess their age (if not stated).
D) Be generally impressed by the friendships of the B3tards and think 'Would they like me?' This makes me check the calendar for any bashes near me (In Portsmouth, I'm not travelling to see people I don't know and might not like)
E) Die a little inside.

» Why I was late

Fun at the cinema
I used to work in a sizeable cinema in Bumwharf, Pompey. One memorable shift was due to start at 5:00pm. At about 5:30 my manager phoned me which woke me up.

Manager "Gareth, are you coming to work today?"
Gareth *Looks at bedside clock* "FUCK!"
M "Were you asleep?"
M *Starts laughing* "Will you be in about half an hour?"
G "45 minutes."

Apparently that brightened up her day.

Length? About a mile and a half, hence the 45 mins.

» Essential Items

Packin' heat...
Never leave the house without a Beretta 92F 9mm semi auto in a belt holster on my back. Two spare magazines of ammo in each coat pocket in case I run into a little more trouble than usual. In my car is a HK MP5K with a 30 round magazine under the drivers seat. Spare mags are kept in various spaces all over the car. In the boot is a Spas 12 shotgun with folding stock. In my right boot is a 6 inch combat knife and in my left is a pair of perfectly balanced throwing knives.

Portsmouth high street can be hell.

Oh, and of course phone, keys and wallet.
