Why are you cool?

Inspired by the two-lies-and-a-truth thread; I got tired of keeping track of what was a lie. So what (true) event, skill, talent, or acquaintance makes you really cool?

For me, I get paid to make videogames.

I had my picture on the front page, above the fold, of my home town newspaper when I was a kid.

Designing and building my post and beam house was supposed to take care of that but, alas, I'm almost as big a dork as LJ.

You prejudiced bastard, what did those poor basses ever do to you? You need to be more accepting of alternate voice ranges.

Me? Cool? Hmmm. I would say "I'm not" but lumberjim already took that one!

I'm not a people person. But I've been supporting IT in higher education for 12 years now (longer if you count work I did as a student), and if there's one thing I've learned how to do, it's to "talk down" somebody who's getting hysterical because of a computer issue. Maybe that's cool.

My neighbor, a doctor, was launching his hot air balloon from his back yard again. I was holding the "crown line" to keep it from blowing around in the light breeze. I got a couple rides in that balloon for helping out on his ground crew.

The photojournalist (heh heh), who had been tipped off in advance, composed a picture with me in the forground, and the balloon in the background. But the balloon dominated the picture.

Mostly sports games and third- or first-person shooters, on Xbox and PS2. We used to make games for the Gamecube, but not anymore. A shame, since the GC had SUCH a better audio compression algorithm...
