The phoenix says hi.
I'd wager at least a few of y'all kind folks know me and my ways, but for the people that don't, allow me to introduce myself.

Name's Nik, it's a shorter form of my old handle, "Nickolai" which was named after that Russian guy from the second Resident Evil movie. Just because I loved both of his main scenes. I'm a phoenix, and came to this conclusion after a dream that was quite powerful. Some meditation and soul-searching later that pointed to phoenix, I decided to adopt it on a trial basis only. Y'know, a 30 day no-risk try out. I thought myself a dragon at the time, so I assumed it was just leftover from the dream, I was reading too much into it, I'm an idiot. I started to get the feeling that I really was a phoenix due to more soul-searching, and the fact that it was fitting me so dang well I was starting to really wonder. There's more to this story, but it's kinda long, and I won't bore you all in just one post, so I'll save that for a bit later. Don't worry, I -will- tell it though.

Other things: I draw, I play videogames, I practise parkour (which is unbelievable fun, even though I'm behind on my conditioning <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarrassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> ) I cosplay a bit. In fact, tomorrow I'm boarding a train to see my friends, and I'll be dressed up as Wesker from Resident Evil 1. Oh yeah, and once I fought zombies on the streets of Toronto, Ontario. I am not lying.

And finally, I am the Captain of the AFSWATTF. The "Anti-Fluff Special Weapons And Tactics Task Force." Looks like Lopting already gave quite the excellent summary of it. Yeah, I started the whole shebang as a personal source of amusement, because once a site I always visited was accused of having a black ops group dedicated to finding silly things said by people. I never forgot that, because I've never laughed so hard, so it was a "Oh, what the heck." moment, and out of nowhere, people started to contribute.

Basically, we profile and make fun of the fluff running rampant on the internet, in a bid to curtail it. Mostly because it tarnishes the reputation of quality sites such as OK.com, and OKP. And also because I am amused by it to no end. I have read things so funny I have fallen out of my chair laughing three times now.

Guess that's it, as this is a bit TLBig GrinR already, so ask any questions you got, and I will do my best to answer them once I get back from my trip!

I can't say as the reputation of any site I have been seriously involved with has been damaged by people posting fluff.

If making fun of people was an effective form of behavior modification there would be no nerds, no fat people, and no otherkin communities. So thank the gods that it's ineffective!

Greetings Nik! I'm new here myself, but I noticed that you Parkour. I find it rare to find someone who does, and think it's wonderful that the art isn't dying. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Hey, Nic. What is this, an OK.com takeover? Or did you just miss me horribly? <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Re: The phoenix says hi.
Sorry it took so long. Like I said, trip wore me out.

Anyway!

Yeah, Sera, I did miss you. And I've been trying to expand my horizons, as OK.com is the only site I signed up to. Plus, since the crash, it's taking a while to get quite as lively as it was, so I thought I'd swing by a forum with...*reads statistics* over 24000 posts for a change of scenery.

Thanks! It's rare to find anyone who even knows what it is. I've grown used to getting a blank stare when people ask what sports I'm into. <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue --> I first got into it from the videogame, Mirror's Edge. I'd known of parkour, or PK, for awhile, but never really seen it in action until I played the game. I looked it up on Google, fell in love, and started self-teaching.

However, now I know that the game isn't 100% accurate. When you land, you roll, right? In real life, you land on your feet, then plant both hands in front of you, and roll from your dominant shoulder to the opposite hip in a diagonal. In the game, the heroine lands, then hits the ground with her forearm and rolls straight over her spine. I did that once on accident, and it hurt like mad.

And yeah, I doubt satire will change anything, but people seem to enjoy what I write...So I guess I'll keep writing for as long as they enjoy it. *shrugs*

Thanks for all the welcome so far....and please get off me Zimmer, I can't see the TV from here, and Dr. House is about to say something witty!

Curses! They're on to us. *waves to black-ops team hiding in bushes* We're toast guys, they found us. *looks over* Oh God, is this thing on?!

Ahem! Uh, hi Shang! I'm just here to maybe learn something and talk with my old friends and maybe make some new ones! I'm totally not planning some kind of stalking operation, where on earth did you get that idea from?

... <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> Nice to see ya, Shang. Seriously, I hope I do learn something.
