Was biatching about something or other in pep band one day, and someone said "settle down, Twitch Boy" and it stuck.

My name's Steve, but IIRC that was already taken. I live in Hungary, so I opted for the Hungarian for Steve, which is Pista (pron. Pishta).

Am Australian.

Not really "Aussie as" though. I'm no Crocodile Dundee, not much of a sportsman, am tertiary educated (in science), can't fix a car, don't go fishing, have never fired a gun or ridden a horse, don't dirtbike, don't drink cheap beer, don't hate refugees, am pro-gay-marriage, I enjoy giving cunnilingus, and none of my kids is called Kylie.

I do brew a fairly good homebrew beer and like all real Aussies I hate Fosters. I did drive a Holden Commodore for quite a few years and I am frequently found near a barbecue which has never known a 'shrimp' but has seen plenty of prawns. So it's not a total disaster as user names go.

The story of my Fark handle is pretty dull. The "NDP" is an acronym from the name I used at the now-defunct Entertainment Weekly message boards, "Nom D. Plume". The "2" was added because there's another "NDP" at this site.

Unfortunately nearly 12 years is a long time and can't recall the origin of my user name. Apparently I was not fond of wicker at the time though.

Thread is making me remember back when links to Ananova were still being posted and things looked like this:

CipollinaFan: albatros183: CipollinaFan: John Cipollina from Quicksilver Messenger Service is my favorite guitarist. He might not be the fastest, knowledgeable or the most technical guitarist but he was the most creative. His sound is so unique, he was a real life Erich Zann and no one else really compares. It's not for everyone but I enjoy it.

I'm ChopperCharles everywhere on the Internet :)

My name is Charles, and I built a Chopper in the past... which started me down the road of custom bike building and restoration. None of that OCC assemble-and-sell crap though. I just make my own bikes, I make rideable art. I don't really sell them either, they're just for me. Now I run several motorcycle forums and have been restoring bikes and building custom machines for nearly a decade now. (And I'm only 34...)

I was walking in downtown Charleston, SC on a hot summer day feeling good after a couple of beers. Heard a street musician down the road and started dancing. The next storefront was a tee shirt shop with a shirt in the window that said "dances with beers".

divaa31: 13 years ago - that's half my life, oh god - I signed up for Fark around the same time I started my first email account, sneaking around behind my mom's back. My username is the creation of a nervous, sad 12 year old girl who really wanted to be COOL. It's by complete chance that I logged on here tonight. I am shocked that my password still works. Apparently Flux is still around? Totally had a secret tween internet crush on that guy.


Wow - so what are you, 25 now? And yet you got me beat by 10 months. Don't know what to make of your bio, except you mention iced tea, so here's a Long Island Iced Tea.

MBK: atlfarkette: Dyslexia in the house! :)

/In case any of the designers of this site are paying attention every time I have CAPS on and type the letter "I" like eye it defaults to Italics. It may just be me but I'm not seeing it anywhere else.

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.


Put me down in the "I read it as alt" column. I generally avoid even thinking about ATL, though... I do *not* like that town. The last time I was down there was for a Lords of Acid/Thrill Kill Kult show a few years ago at The Masquerade. Awesome show, shiatty crowd.

So, you get some cred for living down there and putting up with those folks.

As for my username, it's just the character name I was using in EQ at the time. I've stopped using it since, too many folks couldn't pronounce it.

Originally granted to me in elementary school for talking complete rubbish, uttertosh made it's return as my nickname when I decided to make my Boobies and Weiners here. I had lurked for ages, and had made the account to totally *OH SNAAAAP* someone, only to find out that, rather smartly, Fark didn't allow same-day account creation/Boobies. I had a sad.

My sad was quickly overcome by the joy that an EPIC Photoshop thread circa 2005 could be. I was instantly hooked on mangling images at nobodies behest, save my own. ERHMERGHERD FERTERSHERP!

As I tell marginally better lies than Dering Fertersherp (both painfully terrible), so I felt no need to have a separate account for that.

I also like to reverse troll. As in trolloing trolls. My favourite troll to be trolling was trolling Creationist,good ole uncle Steve (B). Now it is The (Pseudo-cheese-eating-surrender-monkey) Troll. And anyone with an account less than 6 months old who cries DERP, ITG, etc, when corrected by someone who has been here a decade.

Good times. Good times.

I used to play Bolo (Mac Quadra around the days of Marathon) at Dartmouth.
I would play as nemesis but an awesome (actually always won the group Lans) opponent began to use Nemesis[tm]

So whenever I was in a game as Nemesis the whole LAN came after me.

So I had to pick something different.
