Do we have enough expertise here to form a government, declare independence and form our own Nerf nation? We can tell the armed forces they have to fight us using Nerf blasters and, if we win, we get the whole country.



We seem to have enough experience to set up a good educational establishment and build a load of really cool things....then get very drunk.
And depending on who old man Nerf is telling what to do that could come in handy.

I find it hard to explain what I do.....studied Philosophy then I have gone out and I deal with life's real problems instead of the thought up ones. Then outside of that I am a Dad which as others have said is a full on job!

I work for a large bank. My official title is Senior MI Analyst, but that just means I get to problem solved with code all day... which I thoroughly enjoy. Playing with and manipulating data process flows and presenting data in pretty picture format is my bag.

Also a lucky parent and annoying husband... stealth Nerf attacks are a regular occurance.

If we do form our own breakaway government, can I look after our inevitable server farm that will host all of our wonderful Nerf data?

I've worked in IT in the Finance industry for years. Last 3.5 as an Implementation Mgr so when the bank closes at the weekend and all the changes are updated, I write and execute that plan.

I've always been a born organiser so it suits me down to the ground. I really should use these organising skills in the Nerf community in some way.


Oh, wait.....

That sounds familiar - I get to tell a motley collection of business analysts, developers, trainers and support team how we should be doing IT support and development for large corporate systems in an educational situation.

When I say tell, it's probably more like coerce.....

I work in a customer facing helldesk in a bank, as for what I do... I don't know, I'm a qualified computer scientist and I have half an apprenticeship in sparking, before I got told it's not for the colour blind.  I do the odd bit of woodwork and am known for being handyman-on-call in my local community and advising on/building computers

I also freelance sound tech for a few local bands and play more instruments to a journeyman level than I care to remember.

I'm a damn jack of all trades I suppose

Since escaping the rat race I now run an event bar (though I suspect some of you knew that already).

Other hat's have been teaching out door stuff and first aid and teaching martial arts to children from well off families in need of extra-curricular stuff on their cv to get into top schools.

*And the office job I escaped to avoid the ever looming bad back, blindness and ill health it was leading to.

I manage ( he says loosely) a small team of engineers on the nightshift at a well known pizza factory in Leyland.
Nothing really exciting, but it pays the bills!

Some awesome jobs here guys very talented people !

I work for Western Union and no I'm not being paid to plug the company name... However I do not work in a poxy corner store I'm in the business solutions arm of the company so I basically take all of the business away from your bank haha

I'm officially an Implementation Specialist and most of what I do is converting text and csv files into XML and manipulating the data into our system to make international payments between businesses

I'm also a dad of 2 girls.
I like to tinker with my car and have an interest in all the tech things people have mentioned

Oh and I'm into photography

I'm a chef by trade but the last several years I have been teaching Hospitality and Catering in a school for kids with social, emotional, and behavioral problems, love the day job as I get to cook all day which I love and working with the kids is a great laugh at times. On the side I attend comic con events and sell Action Figures and Nerf stuff under my alter ego "Monkeytron Collective" https://www.facebook.com/MonkeytronCollective/ My speciality being Judge Dredd themed paint jobs on blasters.

Currently I'm a full time film and TV student going onto a course in digital film production. my passion for film making also kinda kick started my interest into Nerf being they make great budget props and the fact most people in my area have a few blasters laying around.

hobbies wise i play warhammer 40k , DnD and shaowrun 2nd as well as play a lot of video games on my out dated laptop that is in need of being replaced by something more substantial for me to continue with my course.

oh and i usually end up lurking in the background of the form and procrastinating about sorting out a  Nerf primary...

I like to think that we know what other members are capable off when it comes to Nerf but I've been wondering, what do you all do in real life?

It'd be interesting to know what y'all do for a living/what you're studying. Perhaps we can help each other outside of the hobby?

(Boff need not apply.)


I'm studying, at the same working.
I always get tired after each day. But one thing I know, I'm enjoying  Smile
