Power User Profiles: Nug

I did say I had something special planned right?

I've decided to bring back the Power User Profiles for a short run because there are a few members of the community I wanted to profile, starting with todays Power User. A personal favourite of mine and one of the forum members I interact with most regularly, he's made numerous contest polls, even winning on of the most hard fought and competitive polls this year, CDC80- Steampunk (still don't understand why you didn't pick that one as your favourite pic man, but it's your call I guess). So ladies and gentlemen, please give a big hand for Nug.

"Ancient/Monumental Mysteries" and Doc McStuffins.
Favorite Comic Book Character: The Incredible Hulk

If You Could Have One Super-Heroic Power In Real Life: Just one?? Ah man. 
I'm gonna have to go with the ability to turn invisible. Just think of all the fun and shenanigans a person such as myself could get into. 😉

In Your Leisure Time: Haha... what leisure time?? 
I love doing all sorts of things. I love drawing, music, gardening and landscaping, catching a college football game on Saturdays (Go Dawgs), fishing, working in my wood shop, hanging out with my people,
Hero Machine, video games, Youtube, bon fires,  quiet nights on the couch with my wife, hiking in the mountains, and sand castles at the beach. I love rocks and gemstones, working on cars, fabricating axes and wicked knives, swords, daggers, etc... and just generally creating something. 
A day is never wasted if you can learn something new, or make something awesome!

Character Design Turn-Ons: Great posing and item usage.
I love it when I can browse through a gallery and get to that piece that makes you go "Whuuuuut??? How did they pull that off?".

Character Design Turn-Offs: I'm not too picky and I try to find something I like in everyone's work. I guess what turns me off... Lack of style. Straight forward poses with items and gear put where they were actually designed to go. Eh... C'mon people. Show me how you can make a mask out of boots, or wings out of machine guns. Think outside of the box.

Any Personal Message You’d Like To Share With The Hero Machine Community About Geek Life: Hmmm... Geek Life, Jock life, Goth, Redneck, Emo... Labels do not truly matter in life.
Be yourself... Unless you can be Batman. Then definitely be Batman. Live life to its fullest and don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Some of the best things happen in life when you take a chance. Take the good with bad and learn from both. And love... with all your heart... love.
(Gonna end it with a "Fight Club" quote... here goes) "Let that which does not matter truly slide."

    What was nug? Never was good with slang . . .

    *sigh* I tried; I can’t be Batman. I guess that means I’m still stuck being myself…

    Nice Profile. Welcome to the PUPs.

    Now, invisibility…. Just the other day I was reading an online article (and I won`t remember where I read it) about how certain powers would be horrible to have in real life. Invisibility was one of them and for one very good reason. In order to see, your eye, or at least your retina, HAS to be opaque. Otherwise, if your retina is not receiving light, you`re not activating your optic nerves and not seeing, so invisibility would actually make you totally blind as well.
    Even today’s scientific inquiries into visible cloaking, that is looking at bending light around the cloaked subject, admit that it can`t be 100% effective, otherwise the subject won’t be able to see outside of his cloaking cocoon.

    Sorry to burst your bubble.

    Hey JR, this might be a good idea for other posts. Examinations of the good and bad of having certain superpowers in real life.

    Welcome to the club! Make sure you wipe your feet.

  5. Sabrina says:


    It’s a superpower, and superpowers are often paired together. (Fire resistance is often paired with creating fire, for example.) So I think seeing while invisible is still pretty fair game, because invisibility could be the first power and the second power could be defying the laws of physics. 😉

    Congrats, man.

  7. Worf says:

    @Sabrina: Now you`ve hit uppon a power I could DO something with. Defying the laws of physics. 😉

    @ HerrD: a “nug” is a nugget of good smoke… and I don’t mean tobacco! My kid taught that to me, the little stoner. Guess it’s genetic. ‘Scuse me, just got my mail-in ballot, have to vote for legal weed in Oregon…

  9. Nug says:

    Hey, Thanks guys! It’s nice to be in the club!

  10. cliff says:

    I love the Goonies as well, I still watch it occasionally.

    Sounds like you are a very creative person with all of your hobbies/interest

    Good to have ya in the club indeed.

    Oh. Good luck with the vote, man. It’s not for me, but from my research, it will be a lot safer than alcohol after the initial spike of use.

    @Nug: Glad to have you aboard. Like your pics.

    CONGRATULATIONS! I am glad to see that the PUP has made its way back around to the machine.
