I used to tell people that a "holocaust" was an idiomatic unit of measurement like a "murder" of crows. Any number of sockmonkeys together was a "holocaust" of them.

Really, when I registered I noticed there were a ton of users with "sockmonkey" in their username and I thought they were all lame so I wanted the lamest, most unimaginative name possible coupled with something kind of offensive because I was a new kid in town ready to shake up sockmonkey-username-based posting.

Now I look down and see all of my notes for posting humor for today revolve around Romney's "BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN" gaffe and I don't have any apocalypse humor ready. I already have a bottle of Code Red ready and two P'Zones. My internet posting command center is across the house. I have become part of the posting problem that I sought to overthrow.

I have no apocalypse-themed humor and I must post.

The 90 doesn't mean anything. The signup thing wouldn't let me use just LDM so I added a number.

My front yard was overgrown with dandelions, and the local classic crock station kept playing that REO-Speedwagon song about driving through the Colorado Rockies where I live.

Many mistakenly think my name is a reference to the drug know as marihuana, but actually my chronic toking habit is purely coincidental.

I like that.

Epiphany: My rap name from college......

/oh the shame


Y'know, I always read an extra 'c' in there... Thought you were a farkette who had 'dat ass', or an Epic Phany, but were smrt enough to play on having 'dat ass' as being something of an awakening or illuminating experience.

Now? *clicks profile* Well... nowihavethewierdestboner.jpg

I created it right after I was ordained. But I don't like it when people call me dave IRL. Sans caps for humility sake. At least I was trying.

Was listening to Load while trying to think of a name.

Back in ye olde days of free internets via AOL CD's I think I was maybe 11 years old and enjoying the heck out of Final Fantasy VII. You had to use a whole new account/username every time you started a new free trial. I ran through UltimaSephiroth, UltimaCloud, and UltimaRedXIII (real original, I know). I got to UltimaCaitSith when my mother finally agreed to just pay for the service so I didn't need to hunt down another CD every month. Ended up using the crap name so long that it became my staple. It got shortened to UltimaCS for Fark specifically because I accurately deduced that you're all a bunch of glaucoma'd geezers who can't tell the difference between UltimaCaitSith and UltimateCatShiat.

In memory of a deceased friend. Used to say, "dude.....man...bro" sarcastically; he was not a surfer dude, but liked to make fun of them. He passed away shortly before I got a Fark account and he was on my mind then. Still is; he was a good friend. More like a brother, which is what makes it appropriate. My password is a nickname he had for me. If you figure it out you can hack my account. Good luck.

I like yo-yos. I can do lots of neat tricks with them. It was my username at Three Kingdoms where I met Cletus. It's good to have a short username for muds, so people don't have too much trouble giving you stuff or chatting. Plus, I've got a 3 digit account number, so Yoyo was still available.
 
2012-12-21 05:16:32 AM  
First name Sue, last name has always begun with the letter B (maiden & married). Divorced now, but still with the letter B.

Got the nick suebhoney when I was 7. Thought it to be perfect for me when the internet came about.

Not exciting, but there it is.
 
2012-12-21 05:17:12 AM  
I couldn't think of a name, and YTMND was still big back then. I just chose the most non-descript meme that I could think of from there.
 
2012-12-21 05:19:39 AM  
I couldn't remember the password to my first account, which I created around 2005. I had recently watched WarGames again and took my user name from that.
 
2012-12-21 05:21:17 AM  
Its my real name
 
2012-12-21 05:21:47 AM

I haven't seen you in ages!

Well, it is Fark so it can't be obscure. Mash-up of ..... *glances around nervously, then double checks behind me* By-Tor and the SnowDog by Rush and Dogmatix from the Asterix and Obelix
comics.

My kids' initials and "mom". Pretty deep huh.

Of course, I have another kid now, so it's not accurate.

What does that say about you as a parent?

Can someone make the same name with lowercase characters?

It's actually what some people call me - my name is Noga, the "le" is a Yiddish addition denoting affectionate familiarity.
 
2012-12-21 05:38:18 AM  
I was lurking on Fark and someone was just going too far and I just had to comment......hence the name.....

Of course I realize that no one actually cared that they might be crossing some line of my defining...which is why I really just don't bother much.

I am also just one of Maddogjew's 917 accounts Link

And it's Noh-ga-le. I've sometimes wondered if people misread it as No-gail.

My occupation and my name.

I was at work when I did it.

Lame.

I dreamed daily the day I could put Fayetteville, NC in my rear view mirror. Hence StillinFayettestan because Fayettenam is your daddy's and grand folks vernacular for shiatty Fayetteville.

Because I'm also a furry and I wanted my username to reflect that.

From the right column.

If my Fark name had already been taken, i would have picked "Link Voting" or "Fark Blogs" instead.

Not "Politics Forum", because that would just have been weird...

WHERE ARE YOU, and why don't you pass LEFT, as in over here to me????

For me... it all started when I was in this cult many years ago... I was the leader and so a "Monster" because it was a Kali cult after all...  but sometime during the late 70s I really got into Disco and left the life behind and started DJing at some of the local clubs.  Well, apparently I was so good at it, they gave me the nickname monster which i felt was apropos... so it kind of stuck... well, as you know, I am Indian so... it just kind of fell together after that.

I was drawing a blank on username and was listening to Sublime, so....
