we'refromthesamestory: atlfarkette: I started on Fark with nycfarkette and then I move to Atlanta and became atlfarkette. There will be at least one of you that will realize I'm not ALTfarkette but rather ATLfarkette.

When I noticed that my mind was blown.


In hindsight naming myself after the city I live in at the time was dumb.

My name is actually Freemason code.  The first person to solve it wins a prize.  And by prize, I mean we show up at your house and you are never heard from again.

It's basically the Japanese version of my name. That's it. No CSB here.

In hindsight, I wish I'd used the nickname I use on most other sites on the internet (Interactive Civilian), but oh well. Sure, I could just set up an alt account and transition to that, but I don't feel like going through the trouble.

Well, when my dad set us up an AOL account back in... oh, 1996ish? he asked me to think up a username. I was just starting to be in love with Terry Pratchett books at the time, so I combined  Rincewind with my favorite number 53, which had been given to me by my 5th grade teacher.

Thus,  Rincewind53was born.

/because Rincewind is such a common username, there are actually other Rincewind53s out there.

For the first few months I was here I thought it was ALTfarkette, and there was some joke in there about how you were an alt.

/And yeah, I made my name to comment on one thing on the main page.

I had this discussion with some other TF'er this week.

Mine came from my opinion of some people in a thread on the day I signed up.  Of course I didn't know you couldn't post for 24 hours (I'm told it is now 6) after you registered and paid so the feckingmorons I was replying to were long gone by then.

It's Latin for "He Who Has the Satisfying Penis"

I am embarrassed how long it took me to realize it was ATL. :(


LOL! Did you just pick up on that tonight?

When I first got in the navy my last name was rather unpronounceable. I was given the nickname mudwhistle.

A mudwhistle is when you blow air into a hookers ass and press on her stomach. Yay Thailand!

62 is the hull number of my first ship, the USS Chancellorsville.

It's an anagram for "A Bankcard Nurturer Guy".

MBK: MBK was my old AOL name.  Well, the actual SN was "MyBigKulot".  Kulot is penis in Serbian (I think).



All the girls in Catholic school wore Kulots (I had no idea how to spell coulotte when I was in 6th grade).
 
2012-12-21 12:11:55 AM  
I don't really know, especially since I'm a girl and I've never killed anything besides the penis.

No, really. It took me about a month after I started dorkily bantering at you years ago. I am just still embarrassed.
Eclectic laughed at me hard over that one.

I lurked TFD years before making an account. Then one day a Fark party was announced. So, I decided to show up and smell the hair of people that I had only known by name. The hostess asked me for my login name. I panicked. Years of hard work making spreadsheets and gathering data would be for naught. Then I looked across the room. There was a person wearing a shirt from The Salty Dog Saloon. So I blurted out, "Salty Dog." Well in her drunken script the "a" looked like an "o." I went home that night and created the account using the spelling on the tag, since it was in so many pictures and I didn't want to raise suspicion.

Around all those Generation Blah books and articles, decided that I'd appoint myself voice of my own generation.  Narcissism without portfolio.  I wanted a nick that I had not seen anywhere or used anywhere, and there it was.

Worldcom helpfully came up with the same idea mere weeks later to advertise their network, which at the time I was working for a subsidiary of.  Which was kind of weird too.  Should have grabbed that logo, GIS seems to have completely forgotten it.

You could have just put "lurker" on the tag.

I always thought it was atl farkette.

Mostly because I think when I first joined TF and started joining TFD threads, you said something like "i was nycfarkette, now I'm atlfarkette" and I have massive amounts of hip hop cred, so I knew atl = HOTLANTA.
