I really like The Frantics and I wasn't sure my normal username, RatBastard, was acceptable here.

I used to name my email address after whatever song I was listening to at the time. After i made this one my main email I just started using it as a screen name as well.

\I also considered this to be my theme song for many years...

I went through a phase where I'd try to Latin things up by adding 'ius' to the end of names. This is what mine ended up being, which ended up having the obvious pronunciation, which was completely unintentional. But what the hell, it stuck.

My name + the superior race.

Just kidding.

Idk people called me megarian in high school. I liked Megadon better. Or Don Megga. Or Megalopolis.

I don't kept a common username in my travels around the internet. I usually just make up something with random consonants and vowels.

2012-12-21 01:49:38 AM  
Some people think my name is a reference to Vlad or some sort of kinky sex thing. Really it was just the name I was using in Action Quake at the time I signed up for fark.

I used to be fat. I mean FAT. Im no longer fat, but I still have fat ways. And sounds.

I often sound fat.

I had picked he screenname LoneWolf when I was a distressed and lonely homeschooled teenager because I felt that it expressed my nature, and I haven't had cause to change it now that I have become a distressed and lonely man, even though it is generic enough where I have to attach a number to it wherever I go. I used to go with 777 because 7 is a lucky number, but it looked kind of cheesy so I usually go with 343 now, which is 7 cubed.

The GMF picked this name because it means standing up to adversity. We are stronger than all.

Mine's pretty easy. A long time ago, I was trying to kill my parents in a murderous, manic rampage and the weapon I was using broke when I slammed it into a metal conduit in the drywall in their bedroom (they were running - which was silly and frankly futile, but that's an easy call through the retrospectoscope). Anyway, it hit the piece of metal conduit and the head of the ax shattered from the force - and so I shouted out, just as the neighbors were arriving, "DAMN AX!"

The rest, as they say, is history.

But I figure that most of you had already figured that out. Just thought I'd contribute.

Ok, pull up a seat for nerdery of the century.

Way back in high school, there were a bunch of wanna-be gangbangers, and then there were me and my cracker-ass friends. We're talking a hick town in northern Colorado, not inner city, so not the "real" gangs. Anywho, I used to drive an old 1980 AMC Concorde that my friends called the "grocery getter" or the "bread machine". We were all out at lunch one day talking to each other about how stupid the kids were who thought they were bangers, and we decided that we should form our own "gang". Since we went to lunch in my car, we circled back to bread as the theme for our "gang names", and we had wheat bread, french bread and me, pita bread. It was fun for the rest of lunch period, and the rest of the day.

The rest of the day consisted of playing Duke Nukem 3D on the computers that the technology administrator had bought and left in his office for... learning purposes. One of them ostensibly served the school website, but that wasn't a terribly heavy load, and it could play Duke easily while running that in the background. So we did. Unfortunately, being an old DOS-rooted game like it was, it had a limitation of 8 character player names. So I shortened my gang name to Pitabred, and I've been that all over the intarwebs ever since the late 90's.

I use this screen name for everything. I have an unnatural obsession with Richard Marx. Have since I was 8 years old. When I started on the internet around age 14, I picked marxychick1. It states it's purpose- I love Richard Marx, I possess female genitalia, and I threw in the 1 because I felt like it should have a number (that's the first question I'm asked... "Was marxychick already taken?" No, just felt like it wasn't enough).

"I don't want to use any of my regular usernames" + "I have a large bag of weed and enjoy blue jokes."

It was stupid, it gave me a laugh, nothing deeper than that. :P

i read a headline about a remote controlled beer finder in the local rag. realized that it was a definite greenlite on here. looked it up online, posted it and wtf. have to log in first. and create a username. and boobies.

anyways, this username will outlive my dog of 14 years, to be put down if the apocalypse does not take care of it.

The T and the ! are like bookends, containing a constellation only visible during winter midnights, if its not raining, um... never did post the link to a remote controlled beer finder.

I didn't catch Firefly when it first came out. I got around to watching it in 2004 after a friend told me about the show. I was 13 years old, and suddenly there was this amazing girl: small and beautiful, dangerous and vulnerable at the same time. It was her eyes that did me in; large and dark, and so damned witchy. She reminded me of a pale, perfect china doll, and I couldn't take my eyes off of her.

My first crush, and there's no way she'll ever know that I'm even alive.

/P.S. I am not a crackpot.
//I seriously have no idea what I'd do if I ever had the chance to meet her.
///Probably just politely ask her for an autograph, thank her, and continue to worship her from afar.

I got mine from the main character in a book I keep meaning to write. I keep seeing in my head what I want to happen in it, but I lack the motivation to actually start writing it more. (20-30 very rough pages written)

Holy crap! I've been wanting to submit this thread for a couple of months now but was never sure what day would be best to get people to actually join in.

So... .Uchiha_cycliste
Well when I decided to stop Lurking on FARK, and IIRC it was right near one of the major hurricanes I had just begun watching/catching up on Naruto. The anime had JUST gotten to the Gara/Sasuke fight and by that point in the anime they had made a big deal over and over about being an Uchiha. Especially since Sasuke and Itachi were the only ones left. So, when Sasuke introduces himself before the fight he does so in a sort of Bondish manner going "Uchiha... ... ... Sasuke" And I was thinking to myself that was really badass, But obviously I'm not a ninja, nor do I have super ninja powers, So I wondered what kind of an Uchiha (and yes, I know it's a surname and that over there they say their names surname first, opposite of us) I could be and decided I would be a cycling Uchiha; or a cyclist Uchiha. Then I decided that I liked Cycliste  a lot better because it ended with a vowel the same way Sasuke and Itachi do.

Hence forth I was known as Uchiha_Cycliste. =D

On the only other forum I'm a member of I signed on while I was still on the cal cycling team and I thought Kakashi was a badass (cuz he is) so I made my handle there Cal_kashi. You knowinstead of Ka.kashi.

Even made myself a silly avatar:">
See? It's the Cal Sharingan =D

Mind you I signed up on the anime forum a year or two before fark.

Well, I cook for a living, and non-cooking people tell me I'm pretty snarky (most cooks say I'm perfectly nice, oddly), But when I tried 'snarkyfarker', it showed as being taken, so I added the 'ety' and voila! Not realizing there was also a farketyfarker on here too...Happy Winter Solstice, everyone!

In the early days of teh intarwebs, I used my fraternity nickname "knuckles" as my IRC nick. As IRC gained popularity, people with more persistent connections usurped the nick from me and I was forced to find an alternate. Being a Canadian, I quickly fell upon "caknuck" (the first 'k' is silent).

In other words, this alias is almost old enough to vote now.

We have this highly successful thread just about every morning.

serious musician. As in...concert pianist. Degrees, competition wins, (small circuit) touring performance group. Then boom: lost my hearing. Fast forward a couple decades, during which my world shrank and contracted to nearly nothing. Then- I received the miracle of a lifetime: a cochlear implant that worked so well my "fake" hearing tested at normal levels. And I'm baaaaack.

I used to hang out with after dark a bunch, I wonder why I fell away from them?
It's probably LP's fault.

used to hang out on TOTSE in the 90's as Midas_The_Happy_Canadian but I got complaints several years in that my username was too long and would push the columns over on the bulletin board. Earned the nickname "King Midas" at work when I was told I could turn anything unfixable into pure gold.

I was always told to bring an umbrella to school when it was raining out. The rain never really bothered me, so I always questioned why I had to bring one. But mom and dad told me I had to anyway.

In high school I was able to make my own decisions (or maybe it was Jr. High), and I started defying my parents by refusing to bring an umbrella. Typical teenage rebellious shiat. Of course that's just minor compared to the other stuff I did in my teenage years.

One day I fixed my hair and applied hair spray and then ran like hell to school, or else I was going to be late. Except the hairspray was still wet and it was pouring out. When I got to my home room, my hair looked really swept to one side (and not in a good way), and my best friend told me I looked like I just got kissed by the weather.

Since then, I still haven't given a crap about whether or not it's raining. I'll wear a windbreaker or something, but I don't own any umbrellas since it's just water. So wherever I go, if it's raining out, I just let my hair dry out naturally. And people think I'm weird because I don't use an umbrella, and I get asked about it often enough, I just respond I like being kissed by the weather.

And since all the other aliases I've wanted to use online end up being taken, Weatherkiss is usually absent.

'uchi ha' means 'I am', more or less. So he was saying 'I AM......... Sasuke'.

I suppose it could be the guy's last name. I've never watched Naruto.
