I kept trying to come up with a user name only to have it rejected time and time and time again. I finally got pissed and typed;

It was accepted.

When my twins were born, my boss said, "Hey, congrats, double Dad." Not too much else to it.

moos: moos = moose - e
A moose with no "e" = a non-"e" moose
Take the spaces out = anonemoose
anonemoose = a phonetical interpretation of anonymous


Very clever!

Back in the AOL days, I owned a car, and I named it "The Ride." I was very proud of this fact. The username stuck, as I'm a big fan of self-deprecating humor.

Most people seem to interpret it as "own your life" or "take responsibility for your experience," both of which reflect my general attitude towards things, so that works too.

Crimson tide sucks.
Just like Duke.

It's a play on the quote "Biatch set me up", named after the Bith aliens in the Mos Eisley cantina band in Star Wars. At the time, I thought it was utterly hysterical, both the original quote and this Farker name that played off it.

Quake 2 player nick became real life nick for past 20 years or so. It's just "me".

1994 - college - every cool name I could think of was already taken. Turns out I've always been really bad at naming things. Went back to my amateur jewelry making hobby that I liked and picked two gemstones that I liked working with.

From my website for lantawa:

LANTAWA  "The World's Most Beautiful Word"

Lantawa, phonetically, is a word of beauty.

The word "lantawa" is a word from the Indonesian islands.  Loosely translated, it means "a window"; "to look" or "to see."  I propose that, for 2012, "lantawa" should be adopted into common usage in the English language as a synonym for wise insight, foresight, and keen vision regarding temporal and spiritual matters.

I understand that my love for "lantawa" is somewhat obsessive.  I discovered the word in the early 1970s, by accident, while constructing works of poetry.  This word has a draw for me that is irrational but extremely intuitively precise.  It calls to me, bringing images and visions of natural wisdom, especially in relation to water and the Atlantic Ocean.  Though it originates out of the Philippine Island dialects, its appeal, I believe, is universal in all languages.

Work to bring "lantawa" to full recognition among all people of the world.  This beautiful word is a refined tool in helping to declare our clear minds and honest human traits and designs. Truth, Lantawa.

Started using "Christianfreak" way back in the days of Tripod and Geocities. It was my alias on ICQ and I had a hotmail account with it as well. Just a play on "Jesusfreak".

In college I got my first account on a linux box and "Christianfreak" was too long so I shortened it to "cfreak" which has been my name pretty much ever since on various forums. It works too as I don't particularly wish to be associated so much with what Christianity has become (I just didn't know that 15 years ago)

I'm cferak on Twitter though because I can't type and and I thought was funny so I kept it.

It's part of my porn name, the rest of it being King of the Long Stroke.

So the full name is Benni K Rock, King of the Long Stroke.

Because I am from Kansas. I've heard every Wizard of Oz joke there is. Used to be the only thing people knew about Kansas was what they had learned from that.

Now, I'm thinking of changing it to "notaPhelps!"

There was a discussion on Volkswagons at the time. The commericials at the time were kinda kool. I remembered the German word for fun driving "farfegnugen" and I combined the new found love for journalism and the word, then everyone would know how cool I am. When I sign up there is a waiting period, what the fark. So I waited until I got Total Fark and now everyone knows.

Cool story: BRO, SIS, transformer

Joined FARK after a news story about one of my cases went national and was the subject of a FARK thread involving Lars Ulrich and "suck it."  Conjured up after a drunken afternoon of Crispin Glover songs and George Romero movies.

It was a code name for another project. Too lazy to think of anything else I reused the name here.

Bender is because that is what I do, bending tubes has been my career for 18 years. Not really a Futurama reference.
16v is from some of my old VWs that had their 16 valve, four cylinder engine.

When I worked at a pizza chain with my friends we got a new manager that transferred in from another store. Now, I'm fine with however you think or want to live your life until it starts to infringe on the rights of others.
The first thing out of this guys mouth when he sees my friend and I next to each other is "You guys one of them queers? I can't stand them queers!"
My friend an I were kinda taken back from this just straight up claim so we decided to F with this guy a bit.
Since we were delivery guys, our deliveries were 'shouted' to us when they where ready. So, my friend shouts to me from the front of the store allllll the way to the back "Stevie Cheeks, your runs are ready Sweetie!" in the most stereotypical gay voice.
So, I come up, skipping and over doing the 'gay' thing and said "Thanks baby!" Kissed my hand and put it to his forehead and left the store with my delivery.

My friend said that shock and horror on the new mgrs face was priceless.

He put in for a transfer and left the NEXT day for another store. Never heard from the manager guy again.

Something stupid, of course.

A friend on mine had a saying that he used when he would see people do extremely stupid shiat.

"I've been to two county fairs and a goat farking contest and I've never seen shiat like that before."

I guess my name is pretty terrible since I've never seen anyone else use it.  I first picked it about 15 years ago to register for a Star Trek forum.  I wanted something that suggested science fiction and fantasy.  Or maybe I was going for a weird juxtaposition.  I was playing that Magic The Gathering game at the time and played the red/blue colors a lot, so there's that too.  Now whenever I register for a new forum I usually use this name because I know it won't be taken.

Late to the thread, but theorellior is an amalgam of my first and last names. It's not "The O'Rellior".

My real name is also an adjective, but a less-than-complimentary one. It's been a minor annoyance for my entire life. I'd just seen The Blues Brothers movie (again) the night before, so I decided to go with a more self-congratulatory user name that also paid tribute to the movie (since I live in the Chicago area).

True Fact: 10 years ago, it wasn't all that common to use the word "fabulous" to mean "gay". I've been on a one-man internet crusade to reclaim the word for the hetero community for the past 8 years or so.

I saw this a few years ago and haven't stopped laughing since.  It's funnier each time I watch it, but then again, I have the sense of humor of a 5th grader!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4ivw0mA6mg
