The Croak: Nyyank257 and Tomlet double feature
The king of the blog section. Although people disagree with him from time to time, no one can disagree the blog section wouldnt be the same without him. He's known for his blogs on politics, religion and science.
Frogbob: How did you hear about ebaumsworld?
tomlet: My IB Physics students in Texas.
Frogbob: How long have you been a member of the site?
tomlet: 2007, used it for a year or so before that.
Frogbob: what made you decide to make an account?
Frogbob: what do you like most about the blog section?
tomlet: I can spew my inane bullshit with impunity. I mostly blog for myself, but it was thad's and Elli's bullshit rightist opinions that made me join.
Frogbob: so there was some drama when you first started? what was it about
tomlet: George Bush, mostly. It was mostly all about debating rightist, leftist, and centrist politics. Thad and Elli were formidable foes in blog debate. Nobody else could hang with them at the time.
Frobob: can you tell ebaums users a little bit about yourself?
tomlet: I'm 42, a teacher, have two great kids, have a douchebag wife that walked out on her husband of 18 years and two kids to be a dancing queen, I play pro level frisbee golf, can throw a golf disc more than 400 feet, used to make about $8,000/year playing semi-pro poker before I quit to concentrate on my marriage, and am about to put down my last couple thousand in poker money for a retainer for my lawyer, Craig Bourke.
Frogbob: How would you describe your blogging style and topics?
tomlet: I used to blog about politics and current events, but lately, I've been pretty self absorbed in my own disintegrating family. My style is... I don't know. I try to use proper grammar and form. I sometimes get criticized for my vocabulary, but I can't help it.
Frogbob: what kind of hobbies do you have outside of ebaums?
tomlet: Poker and disc golf, I'm insanely good at. I gave up a lot of hobbies when I got married. Now that I'm not married (sort of), I plan on taking them up again. I was state doubles bowling champion when I was a kid and carried a 185 average when I was in high school (because I sand bagged like a monster) and rolled several 700's during league play (combo score of three games). I also rocked at darts. I read several books at once all the time. I'm reading Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk and Hero by John Ringo right now.
Frogbob: what is your dream car?
tomlet: I'm not into excessive cars. My mother had a Texas Department of Public Safety pursuit car when I was in high school. It was a 500 hp Mustang GT. She was on her third clutch by 40,000 miles. It got it out of my system. I'd say a Nissan Leaf today.
Frogbob: Do you have any wild stories from your own childhood?
tomlet: Jesus... you wouldn't believe... I was the first to move out in my clique. My duplex was called "the commune." The drugs, sex, and debauchery was legendary.
Frogbob: Famous or infamous?
tomlet: Leaning towards infamous, at this point. I'm working my way back to famous.
