cochlear: 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.


Congrats. that must have been horrifying.
I got to lose my hearing at 2, so it wasn't too traumatising. And thank god I had already begun to pick up speech, so I don't speak with a slur.

There was a photoshop thread with a g"O"at. So I spent hours and hours in the Gimp making my perfect "Quaker Instant Goatmeal" box, realized I needed to create a login, couldn't think of anything better, then discovered I had to wait 24 hours to post.

I've been taking out my frustration at not getting to use that image by constantly and unwaveringly shiatting on republicanism, and making sure the world knows that you people are the actual true source of evil in the universe ever since.

AverageAmericanGuy: Uchiha_Cycliste: 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

'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.


Yeah, it's their family/clan's surname.
Sasuke Uchiha, and Itachi Uchiha.
Though I've come to understand you say the Surname first, so Uchiha Sasuke,

World of Warcraft character name, originally taken from a Spongebob Squarepants episode.

Later I found out what the urban dictionary definition is when a GM contacted me after I got reported. I told him where I got the name and he let me keep it.

While playing Quake offline I would keep landing in the lava and die. The game script would say "DaZeD did a backflip into the lava." over and over again. I say backflip and lava in the scroll so often that I thought it should be my name. Hence, in Quake I became LaVa_BaCkFlIpS. '01 ish. Then started playing online with a T1 cable connection, joystick and mouse look with hook and spent way to much time doing it. Someone in Germany started a Clan using Lava Backflips as their name. /// TMI

Thanks. I did forget to add CSB. Uchiha, yes, it was horrifying. Mostly extremely depressing. I still struggle with the residual depression. But happy to be back. Losing hearing at 2 would actually be a lot easier. You don't really understand what you lost, so your reality is different.

My mother falsified my birth certificate to pretend to her friends and peers that my stepfather had adopted me (and/or to conceal from her Republican political colleagues that she'd been divorced), but never actually bothered to tell me that all the paperwork I'd been filling out - for college applications, jobs, etc - was in a false name.

So I got nastygrammed by the IRS and various federal agencies, advised that I had 60 days to correct the errors I had made ("what appears to be an attempt to defraud") in various places or risk felony prosecution. I showed up at the social security administration office with piles of paper. I'd managed to get a driver's license in the name of a person who didn't legally exist, I had a paper trail for the fake name, but nothing for the real one.

Ended up having to pay to get my name legally changed, added one of the last names as a second middle name, thus making both names a part of my legal name, then had to fax notices and gather stamped/signed documents to return to the IRS. By the end of the 60 day period (the week after my 18th birthday, IIRC), the people in the SSA knew me by sight and I'd become a sort of living nightmare to data-entry clerks in multiple state and federal agencies. A "data shade."

3F14, Homer the Smithers

Smithers: [on a public phone] Mr. Burns, 48 rings, are you all right?
What did Simpson do to you?
Burns: Nothing other than drive me to distraction with his
incompetent boobery. Terrible at everything, a complete
moron!
[Homer is still holding the phone]
But I'm not really free to talk right now.

And I like oxymorons but they tend to be too on-the-nose, so I like this name because it seems like an oxymoron, but it really just indicates my desire for my silly, seldom-serious posts to achieve farce as efficiently as possible.

This post is a terrible example.

P.S. My first user name was Surgical Boobery but, as that most likely would be taken as something other than what I meant, I quickly changed it.

Oh, this is easy.

My name is David P. Hogan. So, I have the email address davidphogan at gmail.

I had another Fark name before it, but I could never remember it because I used it rarely, and I finally lost that name (I think I moved and lost the post it not, and cleaned my cookies around the same time) so I started a new Fark Account to submit some crap. I was drunk, and just figured, "farkit, I'll just use my email address/domain name for this one so I don't forget it."

I realized there's some value in being on a site like this with my real name, even if it's such a common name that I've talked to seven people with the name Dave Hogan as well. So, I get to be kind of anonymous while being accountable for whatever shiat I post on here.

So I have that going for me, which is nice.

A "gyrfalcon" or "jerfalcon" was the largest bird used for hawking in the Middle Ages, and was traditionally reserved for the High King or Emperor. So-called because of the way it "gyred" when it was circling for prey. The gyrfalcon was also called a "tiercel" because the female was one-third or a "tierce" bigger than the male.

Why? Because falcons are awesome.

since I am going to change it anyway, my handle started on the politics board on craigslist. I chose it deliberabtley. It was common when somebody was losing an arguement that they would attack you for your handle. So I chose a handle that was rediculous that it was so easy to attack that many would go right for it. It started as dick tater, then then ass masterson, then ass master flash. soon it will be Fatty McFatcheeks.

I have lost my hearing aids before and been without for weeks...
Granted it's ORDERS of magnitude difference but I can commiserate in a small way. And honestly, those were a very rotten couple of weeks for me. I pretty much didn't go to work because it depressed the hell out of me t not be able to interact with my co-workers and to keep being reminded that I was disabled.
Again, nothing like you, but it sure was angry and depressing for a while.
