Choosing Your Screen Name?


#1

How did you choose your screen name?

Just curious... Mine is pretty self- explanatory.


#2

I'm into some Goth stuff (though I'm finding I like punk a little more) and I was born in 1977.


#3

I couldn't think of a halfway amusing name so just stuck with my dullarse name of birth.


#4

Well protean means to change shape, and I went from quite round to people thinking im juicing. I also like Greek mythology, and Proteus was a sea god who could change shape at will.


#5

I'm wide.


#6

My band's name is Lost In Thought.


#7

x- mathematical variable

zen- you can google that one

nova- most destructive force in the universe/ Exploding star


#8

I used to be bandgeek (I think you can figure it out). Now I'm Fonebone because growing up I was a big fan of the Don Martin cartoons from the old Mad magazine.


#9

I travel about 150k miles a year or most of the time.


#10

Slipknot inspired. Has something or other to do with lyrics that helped me through some shit a while back.


#11

A nickname that stuck...


#12

It's an old name from high school, I played lacrosse and I was pretty laid back. My other name is stochastic, I use that at work. That's the kind of math I do on the job, so I figured it was appropriate


#13

Was new to the Internet forum experience and when I decided to sign up on the spur of the moment couldn't think of anything.

I had just read an article on Elk hunting and was thinking of my hunting plans for the upcoming year and viola.


#14

I am a male computer analyst; I guess that says it all

geek boy


#15

"New Damage" is track 12 from Soundgarden's album "Badmotorfinger". Favorite band, favorite song, and its been in the background for almost every deadlift PR.

And its just a fucrappin' sweet title!


#16

Makkun is the nickname I got when I lived in Japan. In Japanese you add a "-kun" to a boy's name, and a "-chan" to a girl's name. So if I were a girl I'd be Machan...

Makkun

Profession and clean-date


#18

Hmmm.. I live on an island in the caribbean, and my only source for workout/strength training is the Nation!


#19

Dude, I like your avatar. Is that a housecat pouncing on a 2 yr old?


#20

My aunt & her fam used to live in Okinawa. They called my cousin Bobby-san.

Is it regional?
