Greetings, I am T da B. I am a 27-year-old Renaissance man from San Jose, California. I have led quite an interesting life. Right now I am a computer programmer, and before that I was a full-time musician, and before that I was an engineering student (in EECS) at UC Berkeley. I have had various hobbies throughout my life, but one that has survived the test of time longer than most is video games. For most of my life I've played them--I loved them and lived for them. It was certainly quite an addiction--playing original Tetris on fat Gameboy was the first domino in the chain. Recently, I decided to put an end to this, mainly because video games required so much time--especially if you wanted to become a master like I always did. Enter Nerf.
People ask me how I got into Nerf, and I really have a hard time answering that question. I randomly stumbled upon some modding videos on YouTube, and the idea of turning a child's toy into something that could punch holes through cardboard got me all hot and bothered for some strange reason. I also had a brief stint with airsoft back in the day, but back then I was a poor high school student who could barely afford a ghetto pistol (Colt 1911 gas blowback). My classmates, however, were rich as fuck and had all the latest and greatest electric Uzis and other crazy shit that I was no match for. I quickly dropped that hobby and picked up drugs instead.
I have been a scruffy-looking Nerf herder for a few months now, and the ride has been great. Now that I have a good job and solid cash flow, I've been able to take this hobby to the max. I've always been the type of person to push the limits of everything he tries. I've done a few extreme sports over the course of my life, including rollerblading, BMX, and skateboarding. Over time, I became less and less fearless, as there was much more to lose. With Nerf, there's little physical risk (unless you're retarded) and the cost of modding is very affordable. I have had little to no mechanical engineering experience previously in my life, so this hobby will help me out in that respect. I feel like I have a lot to contribute to this community!
