Farming-1 (but only because it's what I do)
Heavy Equipment-2
Thanks for being willing to post here as a fairly new member. I do like the Napping-3, as I would probably join you there. Note, I can do that after drinking a pot of regular coffee, none of the unleaded stuff.

Looking back at my original from 9 years ago:

"Mine would be rather pathetic (well, the physical stats probably okay, as I recently did squat 345 pounds, trying to get back to 275 bench presses, and I'm back into running training for a 1/2 marathon; and I guess a masters must count towards EDU) but my skill set, ugh. Maybe computer 1, wheeled 0, admin 0. You would think after 46 more years I'd have a larger skill set, but CT was a bit limited in that area (which is the version I'm statting to) and I'm lazy. I'd have procrastination 3 if that was a skill!"

However, in the intervening years, I know my endurance has gone down and bench pressing 245 is about it (although I did hit 285 last year!) And in context of American social levels, in hindsight with how and where we live, it is higher. In terms of world social class (attributing social class with wealth levels pretty much) it would be higher, but discussions there can rapidly devolve to pit material! So a bit better than middle class but no where near the top.

So: 978AB9
Service: Civilian
Computer (Legacy) 2, Wheeled Vehicle 1, Admin 1, Napping 1 (I liked that skill!), Procrastination 3.

I've bumped up a couple skills.

Apparently I've been napping through life...I'd add art (writing 0) but I don't think that was classic. No weapon skills or survival skills: I am doomed should the apocalypse arrive!
Mostly lurking about...CT is still my favorite with T5 as a neat tool box to plunder.

Wheeled vehicle-1

I am ready for the zombie apocalypse. My current End would be a couple points lower until I got back in shape. I could advance the hand weapon skills fairly quickly, I'm just horribly out of practice at present.
