So, there i was working at the restaraunt I'm still employed by. I was wiping a metal table, holding a wet rag, standing in a pool of water, when I decided to move the toaster to get the crumbs from under it. I put my hand on top of it and slid it forward. I was wiping the crumbs up when I felt tingle in my fingers. I looked down to see 2 of my fingers had went inside the toaster. Note that this was no ordinary household toaster, it was a $600 commerical toaster, and I had just started a week before. I threw the toaster down to the ground, shattering the heating elements and ruining it, I'm so surprized that they didn't fire me for that. I let out the most girly scream possible, and proceded to shake my way to the back of the kitchen where I blacked out and dry heaved for a while. Everyone there sat me down on a milk crate, still afraid to touch me thinking they may still get shocked, and gave me a cigarette. I didn't have a lighter, but I had some matches which I couldn't light because I was shaking so bad. The next day I came back into work, and everyone was calling me toast.

Started in 1998. I was in NY, I was engaged, I ran the highest bandwidth net radio site on the planet for about 2 months.

Optimum online figured out that I was taking 680KBps (yes, that's a big K)and promptly capped me at 128k (yes, that's a little K) while still telling me that I had unlimited bandwidth.

The fiance I went to pick her up a day or 3 later and she'd just gotten stoned off her gourd and farked some guy sideways, told me she loved me and nothing had changed, then dumped my ass all while I was reeling from everything.

Spent 5 days just sort of out of it, then caught the flu and was unable to keep anything down (the 5 days before I think I did not eat much either)

Was hospitalized 4 or 5 days after this when my roommate at the time was tired of me puking up nothing. I was not used to NY flu evidently 'cause i don't puke from the flu.

The hospital gave me something to calm me down as I was shaking and exhausted from not sleeping for about a week at this point.

The medicine they gave me to calm me down had this weird unexpected side effect of making me absoutely positively mental and able to feel every single cell in my body (the IV dripping in me was freaking me out)

I checked myself out of the hospital 5 or so hours of waiting in the ward in a nightgown in 55 degree temps and not being allowed a blanket and was taken home by my roommate, or I walked, I forget at this point... the hospital was not all that far away.

I stayed in bed for a day or two while the medicine they gave me slipped out of my blood stream and I was able to get back to semi-normal - the IV really did help, and I was able to keep food down after I was able to chew without freaking out.

I was 2 or 3 months behind on rent, mainly due to me honestly forgetting 2 months. I know it sounds implausable but it was true, and the money I owed to my roommate who was also my best friend.

I had been out of work almost 2 weeks at that point also. I was having a bit of a hard time coping also as my relationship had gone down the tubes and I had pretty much outweirded my friends as nothing they knew to say helped other than that things were just disturbing.

At about this point my roommate, not knowing what to do with me, gave me the Illuminati Trillogy and Schrodinger's Cat series and told me to read them in a particular order.

The next month I was in therapy, just to try it out and see if someone trained might have a clue how to deal with me. After 2 sessions the psychologist said I should seek medication because I seemed perfectly happy, sane, etc, until my little then-ocd brain would wander back to the same issues over and over again.

I thanked her, said no, went out and got hit by a car.

not intentionally.

nothing happened except I got a bit freaked out.

It was winter, or dark fall, it was cold, and I was alone, as my roommate had left to go see his relatives and all my friends were online.

Someone asked me what had been going on, I told her the story (many details are omited here), she said I made her cry and asked how I was.

I said "it's been pretty rough, I have never been so angry in my life, never so sad, never so sick, and never imagined all the random stuff that could happen. right now I'm just mildly disturbed"

Anyway, it was years ago when I was first signing up for one of the IM's out there. Every single name I put in was taken, but the software was nice enough to suggest new names, like john0143 and other silly things. I got frustrated and typed in about 100 gibberish charters, which was well over the limit, and the software popped up with "cannot suggest a name" which I instantly took as being a sign from the universe.

So that's how the nick cannotsuggestaname was born.

Roadtrip many years ago with my friend Doug. I'm driving with my arm on the car window through the desert. We pull in to a truckstop in Arizona for dinner.Sit down at the counter in the restaurant. Redhead waitress comes on up to take our order. Looks down at my bright red left arm and says "Honey, that's one fine farmertan you've got goin on there". I look up at her and say (as a joke) "So, you dig my farmertan?". Long story short, ended up staying the night at a motel next to the truck stop with the waitress. Doug had to shell out for his own room. Got back to Chicago and Doug told everyone the story and the nickname stuck.

Several years ago, I was MIS for a cruise line. One of my assignments was to create, track and maintain a growing database of people who had expressed an interest in receiving catalogs. Those catalogs annd the shipping and handling costs really add up.

So aside from digging out duplicate requests, I also began to find the invariable "bogus" names that people "Anita Aborcion", "Youra Dreama", etc.

One day, I noticed a name that seemed bogus (I thought "walljasper" might refer to something that dried to a spotty opaque sheen on the men's room walls!), but was so striking (picture an intellectual type with horn-rimmed glasses and carefully combed hair), I decided to adopt it as a pen name: Stanley J. Walljasper!

If you do a search across the web, you'll find several such 'Jaspers, one of whcih is the noted computer database guru. 'Guess he never got one of those catalogs.

Well, it's my online pen-name for the Webcomic that I make(NSFW). So I decided to use it for Fark too.

How I came up with the pen name Ghastly?

Well I originally started my journey into the dark and twisted world of hentai by creating Pokemon hentai. There was just something about taking a franchise as hugely popular as Pokemon was back in the 1990s and perverting the living hell out of it's clean and wholesome image.

I didn't want to use my IRL nickname/stagename for any of the hentai works I was creating (started with lemons and then tried my hand at drawing... really, really, really sucked big-time at drawing back then. Suck somewhat less now). My first lemon was a very graphic dark-fantasy piece with lots of BDSM/NC thrown in. It was pretty ghastly stuff. Then I realized there was a pokemon called "Gastly" (no "h") and since my work was pretty ghastly I should work under the pen-name "Ghastly" (with the added "h" standing for "hentai").

I soon grew tired of writing lemons and drawing pictures of a crossdressing James (Team Rocket) being buggered senseless by a dominatrix Jessie (Team Rocket) and I had also been introduced to a very famous webcomic called "The Thin H Line" which is now known as Sexy Losers(NSFW). I did a guest strip for Hard and that started my love of comicing. I then created my own webcomic, inspired by a strip on Sexy Losers involving a tentacle monster and kept my old hentai pen-name for the comic.

Internet celebritiship soon followed (it's so easy to become an internet celebrity, but saddly it amounts to SFA in the real world) and I started using Ghastly as my name for all my online endeavours. Wil Wheaton sent me an e-mail after I captioned some of the photos he used to have up in his photo gallery and told me about this wonderful place called "Fark" where they actually have caption competitions and told me I should check it out if I wasn't already a member. So I followed the link to Fark and here I am, the farker known as Ghastly.

"Fata Morgana, also known as Morgan le Fay, was a fairy enchantress skilled in the art of changing shape. In one traditional story she was King Arthur's sister and learned many of her skills from Merlin the Magician.

A special type of complex mirage, one that sometimes gives the impression of a castle half in the air and half in the sea, is named after Fata Morgana. She was known to live in a marvelous castle under the sea. Sometimes the enchantress made this castle appear reflected up in the air, causing seamen who mistook it for a safe harbor to be lured to their deaths.

The fate morgana mirage is one that can occur only where there are alternating warm and cold layers of air near the ground or water surface. Instead of traveling straight through these layers, light is bent towards the colder, hence denser, air. The result can be a rather complicated light path and a strange image of a distant object. A fate morgana actually is a superposition of several images of one object. Typically one image is upright more or less above two inverted images that may be mingled together. The images may undergo rapid changes as the air layers move slightly up and down relative to the observer. "

As a teenager, I worked for my brother-in-law on a farm. I had a knack for accidentally breaking the most unbreakable of things. He thought that by inferring I was of Polish descent by putting "-ski" at the end of my name, it might shame me into be more careful with his tools, and thus cut down on his replacement expenses. It didn't work, but the family nick stuck and eventually devolved into just "Ski". As the years advanced, I added the "Tronix" on the end to have it become the universal fictitious company name that I would not, and probably never will operate. You know, 'cause everything sounds cooler with "Tronix" on the end. Gives it that modern, cutting edge sound. Much like putting "2000" at the end of your product name used to be all the rage...until we passed that year and everything was still just as crappy as it ever was.

Now that I've bored everyone to tears, please continue. I missed this the last time around and must confess that there are more than a few login names about which I've been curious.

My real name is Mark... for some reason some girl started calling me Markey about 10 years ago, just for the hell of it, I decided to spell it Marquis, which in turn morphed into "The Marquis de Salad." That later shortened into just "the marquis."

I especially liked "Rayonic" because it is easily modifiable, while still sounding almost the same.
Rayonis, for a more medieval-ey tone.
Rayonix, to sound more sci-fi.
Etc, etc.

Chewbacca simply because Chewbacca is the Alpha
Wookie and one of the finest non-speaking roles in the
history of film.

And as for the Jones my friends thought it was from
Indiana Jones but it is actually from those blaxploitation
movies in the 1970s. The Character with the last name of
Jones was always the baddest mutherfarker in the show
(Black Belt Jones, Cleopatra Jones) And All I can picture
is Chewbacca walking down the street with a pimp cane and
a big wookie afro...that would be farkin cool.

A vote for me is a vote for Huggy Bear the Wookie.

I had just got into one of those heavy relationships where you call each other constantly in the hope she will put out. I stupidly didn't check to see if she was on the same network and managed to rack up 691.00 worth of mobile (cell) phone bills in 7 weeks. I was consequently forced to live on Asda own brand soup for 2 months while I paid the bill off.

The name comes from a character from the BBC series The Clangers .

I am male even though the SoupDragon is female, and no the girl never put out =(

Somebody already had my first initial and last name. I can't stand having a bunch of numbers after my name; it looks too anonymous.

Well, it goes a little something like this. Perspective. I've always realized that we on Earth are infinitely small and unimportant in the Universe. Not to say we are unimportant on Earth, but in the Universe. However, even on Earth, the individual is miniscule. Yet, we think of ourselves, especially individually, as being awfully important. But the guy right next door to you probably doesn't know your name or even give a rat's ass.

Now, what else is so miniscule yet so powerful? What ultra small (by even our standards) thing can cause widespread change? A microbe. At once miniscule beyond notice, too small to be percieved, yet has the power to cause plague, widespread death, or even to cure disease. Especially in large numbers the power of microbes is overwhelming to even the largest. Nothing can withstand the force of nature exhibited by the smallest of all creatures.

Yet, the microbe is irrelevant. Unnoticed. Miniscule, until compared to an atom, or a bacteria. What then does size mean (I hear a joke coming on)? But seriously, is there such a thing as size? is there any difference, relatively, in a human's size as compared to a bacteria when compared to a Galaxy 100,000 light years across? Or is there only perspective? And if there is only perspective, how does that effect travel over large distances? If space goes infinitely outward (larger) from a point of reference, it must also go infinitely inward (smaller), or it is not truly infinite.

NM, I could go on forever, spacially trippin. Yet, it is simply a microbe's mind typing on a microbe's computer.

I was thrown out of the tribe because I believed in the following: "By all odds, earliest man, so naked to the elements and to deadly enemies, should have existed in a state of constant shock. We find him instead the only lighthearted being in a deadly serious universe. He alone, with childish carelessness, tinkered and played, and exerted himself more in the pursuit of superfluities than of necessities. Yet the tinkering and playing, and the fascination with the nonessential, were a chief source of the inventiveness which enabled man to prevail over better-equipped and more-purposeful animals."

Long and kinda lame, but it worked for a good login/screen name:

back in the day in my town mcdonalds opened up and hired a number of the local youth. i was not among those hired, though a number of my friends were. true to form, the managment were cool for quite a while but a short time after the restaurant actually opened they became typical managers and began pitting the employees against each other to encourage healthy competition. well, part of this "encouragement" was the presentation of promotions to the sycophants - complete with $0.10 per hour raises and so my friends, not being the suckup types, didn't end up getting promoted to the position of "junior crew trainer." one of the important things to note about this position wasn't the superior pay, rather, but the total and complete power over those who had not been promoted. if there's one thing i've learned in life, it's that you don't give 16 year olds power and authority over other 16 year olds. needless to say, the people they promoted weren't exactly leaders, but rather asshats, and treated everyone accordingly. so, in retalliation, my friends formed an organization not unlike a union - Self Appointed Junior Crew Trainers - designed and founded expressly for the purpose of subverting and destroying mcdonalds and/or your respective asshat employer.

oh, and there were 68 others taken on IMer before i got there. . .wierd. . .

I've never been a morning person, but I'm 10x better about mornings now than I was when I was in elementry school. My mom was a 911 dispatcher who often worked strange hours, so I was always getting up at strange times in the morning and I HATED it.

Also, when I was younger, I usually slept in my socks to keep my feet warm.

One morning, when I was maybe 10 or 11, I started the shower and climbed in with my socks on. I knew something wasn't right, but in my grogginess it took me a few minutes to realize what I had done.

Not an interesting story, really, but I think the incident is a pretty good reflection of my life.

It's the nickname of Erwin Rommel, a brilliant tactical genius who fought in North Africa for the Nazis. He was so good at desert combat that he actually got some use out of a couple of divisions of Italians.

He was ostensibly a Nazi, but changed allegiances with the winds, and would've likely ended up assassinating Hitler had the car he was riding in not been shot up by the british air force. He assisted in the attempt anyways, but because of a combination of his injuries and incompetence / hesitance on the part of his co-conspirators, he was caught and suicided.

So, it's the name of a Nazi war hero, with the initial of my name at the end of it. I use it in FPS games too.
