Holy skunk tails, this site is awesome!

Hello Steemit!

I remember somebody telling me about this place a few months ago, and the concept sort of percolated in my brain for a while, and recently I finally looked into the mechanics of how it all works, and I am thoroughly impressed. I'm so excited to be joining this community!

My name is Ben, and I am from Los Angeles. I received a secular home school education until enrolling in a public high school, where I met and started dating my wife. I then studied Economics at UC Berkeley, then got an MA in Education from Pepperdine University. I taught for 5 years (Math, English, Science, and Social Studies, grades 8-12) before leaving to raise and home school my own two children, ages 6 and 4. On the side, I do a little bit of private tutoring and a little bit of commercial "acting" with my family.

When I'm not dadding, I'm usually playing the crypto markets, or reading and writing about politics, finance, social issues, history, philosophy, and religion. I love debating esoteric topics (but please keep it impersonal)!

My hobbies include Capoeira, singing, strategy games (board, card, computer, doesn't matter), and playing with dogs. I am really looking forward to seeing all this forum has to offer!

And now, please enjoy this impromptu picture of my family at a friend's wedding!

I believe updog is shorthand for a yoga position complementary to downward facing dog.

Thanks for the tip!

While you're here, I've got another newbie question: What happens to the vote counts after the payout period ends? Do they all reset to 0? Do the vote counts stay as they were, but the reward resets to 0 and only new votes during that cycle count toward additional rewards? Or are rewards only allocated during the first cycle after something is posted and after that nothing? Thanks in advance.
