So you've been to the photo gallery, or even seen me laying on the ground, and the question arises... "WTF?"
Here's a short explanation where my getting pwn3d / owned began and how it evolved.
It started back in 1999 when I posed in a photo of some Storm Troopers 'arresting' me. A year later I joined up as a member of the security team at the annual Toronto Trek convention.
The security team there wear red shirts. Yes, Those kinds of red shirts. The expendable crewman that beams down with the away team on Star Trek, and never returns.
Since 2000 I took advantage of opportunities to pose while in uniform (for my duties as convention security) as a redshirt meeting his demise just for fun and make the event more interesting. It was fun. Here are a few of my favourites:

I do it because it's funny. I like to laugh, and more importantly I like to make my friends laugh too.
Something happened along the way and I continued the trend with other photo ops such as the following.
Why not, it's always fun to see the big guy get taken down.
