This blog will primarily be about another part of chess.... Strategy is a definite thing I need to learn in chess, considering my rating is not the best... but that doesn't mean I can't mix up my new hobbies (chess) with one of my favorite h...Read more »

I am a experienced student in the "school of chess". I spend most of my time building models, and designing tanks. Alo Durry was a name I made up when I was bored one day. It is associated with the DA graphic artist, because I am him. Durry is short for Duranium, a combination of the words Depleted and Uranium.... DU is a type of ammo used in most modern main battle tanks. it consists of what it says..... Depleted Uranium! It's super effective! However I'd like to make people aware that it is still a very harmful substance to humans, and I do not condone the use of it in ammunition, and simply use it as a representation of my love for tanks.
I've loved chess ever since one of my friends (apteryx) got me into the game at school. Ever since I play it every single day on my kindle, computer, against my dad (whom I used to lose to but now beat!) and yeah! I am addicted to armored warfare, and so I am very into positional and static warfare from WWI and WWII. Funny thing is I have trouble understanding chess as easily, but I am easy to learn! I LOVE MATH AND ENGINEERING!
Here are some pages that I love on wikipedia:
One thing most people should know about me is that I am studying in the field of mechanical engineering. That just about tells you most of my interests. Machines have always been a huge part of my life, and in the future I hope to work at Israeli Military Industries. Criticisms aside, they are one of the most active defense companies in the world. I hope to work in the development of ammunition and arms.
You might be thinking now, "Wow, this guy wants to design tech that kills people?" Why yes, yes I do. But to be fair, most tanks do not use thier guns JUST to kill people. Many ammunitions are provided for anti obstacle purposes. In fact if possible I would like to work in the military engineering sector. While those tanks have even bigger guns, they usually never point them at people.
Funny joke goes along in my family. My sister is a doctor (an industry that saves people), and my brother, a teacher (an industry that teaches people), both relatively peaceful jobs. I, on the other hand, want to design that which ends life.
I'm a relatively diverse person however, and if it where possible to push a button to stop all wars, I would push that button.
ASK ME ANYTHING ABOUT ARMORED FIGHTING VEHICLES (Main Battle Tanks, Infantry FIghting vehicles, reconnaisance armor, etc.) AND I WILL LIKELY KNOW AN ANSWER!

Speed painting is awesome!
