If by PKs you mean Player Killers in mmorpgs, then yes, I'm one. But otherwise, I have no clue Razz

Yeah, all I can think of is Player Kills. Completely lost on MK and EK.

But to answer your question - My parents are an artist/teacher and a computer systems analyst (programmer), and I wound up an a Mechanical Engineer. Didn't quite follow in either's footsteps, but combined them.

My parents own a silkscreening buisness, so I work for them already. It's not bad, but I definetly don't want to print shirts until I die. Very Happy

According to Wikipedia:

PK - Preacher's Kid

MK - Missionary Kid

EK - ???


I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas. I just think about it.

Hmmmm......going by what Sothpaw said in the D&D thread and what AM said about PK's I would say that Sothpaw has some very religious parents.

More on-topic: I'm a 3rd generation a machinist. I don't mind the work that I do. I'm just glad that I didn't follow in my stepfather's footsteps and join the navy. I hated moving every year of two.

Amadeus got it mostly right... EK is Evangilists Kid...
pastors, misionaries, evangilists make it rough on a childs life. EK's and MK's get to travel and see new people and places. PK's just get the rules and always have to look good for the church people... now i'm out of the house and i actually get to open my eyes to the real world... all those rules that were proper for the time but i was sorta taught that those are life long rules... now i know it was just childhood rules but i wish i had known as a child that i could make up my own mind some day.
i was just wondering if there are others out there that feel the same way or were brought up in similar ways.

BMR comes from a very religious family. His father was a priest and his mother was a nun.







...



Yes, that's a joke.

I'm an Athiest, so's me mum, and my dad's Agnostic. However, one of my friends has religious parents, and the restrictiveness has caused him to rebel. His parents would freak out if they found out, but the son of the "good christians", who is only seventeen, regularly drinks, smokes various things, and does other stuff. As soon as he turns eighteen, he's moving out to live with an adult friend until he finishes his last year on high school and heads to marine training.

Aye, that bites. The being the child of "good christians". Had a student who was that way, would always complain to me about it.
