When I"m Not On I-A-B: I"m drinking, plotting, scheming, and napping.
Bio: The details of my life are quite inconsequential. I began as a fanzine (Titmose Monthly) writer in college, stealing paper supplies from the bank I used to work for.

Bio: Born in Alabama. Grew up on a farm. Ran away to the big city and joined the circus, where I starred as the headlining act "Cat Woman of Borneo" for quite sometime (my real name is Cat). Later, after we toured the world extensively, I then became a shipping magnate. Unfortunately my empire was lost entirely when I was sued in a case that would later become known as the "Tricky Toybox Trial" (very sad time in my life... sniffle) Suddenly everything got boring! I opened a wholesale business, from my home, dealing primarily with fund raising for schools and charities. This left me with too much time to burn and boredom galore, but finally the lights shone down from the heavens and I was shown the way... I discovered I-A-B. After several beatings and some incriminating photographs I was coerced into becoming a mod.

Bio:I was born a poor black child... no wait... erm... OK, here it goes. I was born a poor white child on the southwest side of Detroit. I was born to a 16-year-old single mother, who at the time was still a virgin (kind of). You see, in the beginning of the world there were only two energies and nothing else. The good and evil were all that was. They began onopposite sides of the universe but were constantly drawn to each other. After more time than we could ever fathom, the collided and thus the universe was born. 13.5 billion years later on October 30, 1987 at 12:03am they finally split apart and birthed the being who would someday rule the universe. Your God, me.

Bio: Born in the UK to parents that are Italian, Iranian, Emirati and English, moved around between the Middle East and the UK all my life. I married an American Geekgirl I met online. I"m not as religious as people seem to think, it"s just my favourite debate topic. I sometimes talk too much. No two pictures of me look the same. I studied Artificial Intelligence in Uni where I built a fairly massive social simulation for testing counter-terrorism methods. I went on to do Market/Investment/Risk Analysis before getting back to into IT last year.
