    Hello fellow members, I am starting something new called the, "Ask Joe Column" you can ask me any questions pertaining to myself, to you, advice seeking, love, friendship, etc. Ask me about almost anything at all, as long as it applies to the rules and regulations of the site.

    Bob: Because I was taught by the greatest teacher of them all...you! lmao

    Depending on the 'stipulations' and who the mods are, I may consider it.

    Just how self centered are you, on a scale of 1-10?

    Kevin: I'm not one to judge myself on any scale, I let others do that...

  • Kevin

    Well, on a scale of 1-10, I'd say you are a 14.

    Ok, no more busting your chops!

    : )

    Can you tell us about the most confusing experience you've ever had...something you don't think you'll ever be able to explain.

    Kevin: Yeah most likely when I was with a group of fellow students in High School in a club called U.S. F.I.R.S.T. Robotics...

    When we were trying to design and write a program for an automatic 4-speed transmission for a robot that we designed to do certain challenges.

    It was really confusing trying to discuss our ideas on how to make it work properly and make everyone understand our theories.

    Definitively, to complex/confusing to explain here.

    Dave: Billy Roberts is an amazing well known writer from the time period of the 60's and 70's. He's best know for writing, "Hey Joe" which is best known by Jimi Hendrix's version.

    By the way, I do believe someone previously in one of my threads asked the same question.

    Bob: I've been coding since I was aprox. 5 years old. I know plenty about it, but there is always room for learning. If for instance I had access, yes, I could 'revamp' this entire site.

    Anyone else have any questions?

    Coding since 5? Our family didn't have a computer until I was about ten, maybe older. Is your familia generally technologically savvy?

    Sibs.: Yes, for the most part. My father had his own company that design and built machines for ultra-sonic welding (for welding plastics) that was until he got really sick and had to close the business down. My brother and I both built our own computers. My brother went to school for programing and web design. I just like learning and trying new things in the technology world. :)

    I have a 2 parter for you about the sand man, the folklore one, not the comic one.

    Where did sand man come from?

    Why does he give people dreams?

    TSI25: To be honest, I haven't the slightest idea, if you know and would like to enlighten me, feel free to send me a PM.

    I've found a couple of things about the Sandman. (I'm a fairy tale junkie, so had to take a stab at it)

    The sandman is a western folkloric figure, who is responsible for sending children to sleep / giving them dreams. He seems to be represented either as a helpful, harmless fellow, or sometimes in a more sinister light. In the positive version, which you can find in Hans Christian Andersen's tale "Ole-Luk-Oie" he sneaks around in stocking feet and blows fine dust into kids eyes to make them close. This is the gunky stuff you find in your eyes when you wake up.

    In the more evil version (I always thought he was more evil... maybe he's in scary movies?) he steals the eyes and dreams of bad children and uses them to feed his spawn. I guess you could say that's why he makes them dream? This more creepy Sandman is found in a story called "Die Nachtstuecke" by E.T.A. Hoffman.

    I also found some info on a folklore site, that says that the Sandman is made out of the skin of dead people, and that he whispers "tic tok" to people in the dark until he lulls them to sleep, whereupon he devours them. Who knows.

    Tell us if you find out more!
