Magnificent Entertainer

First and foremost, NO! I am not chuggaaconroy in a clever disguise.
I'm an Orthodox Jewish, left handed, mechanical engineer with a penchant for puns and cooking.
I've been a fan of the Pokemon games since Gen I, but I actually do appreciate and enjoy the new games up to and including Sun & Moon.
I'm a big fan of strategy board games, such as Illuminati, Dominion, Ticket to Ride, Small World, and Robo Rally.
I'm not really into competitive battling, although it does look interesting. The last time I had a "serious" multiplayer battle was back in Gen III, during the days of the Game Boy Advanced and the Link Cable...man I feel old sometimes.
Somehow, I managed to become a moderator in the Fun & Games and The War Room and was eventually promoted to administrator. Not quite sure how I managed to pull that off, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve the users on this forum.
Somehow, I also ended up in charge of the Bulbagarden YouTube and Twitch channels. I really don't know how that one happened.
At the end of the day, I just like making other people laugh. That said, I'm pretty sure groaning doesn't count as laughing. Perhaps I should rethink my strategy?
