    alot of people just use their first names, so what about all you others who use a screen name that the rest of us have no idea where it came from or what it means?

    Earth: The Insane Asylum of the Universe. Nowhere else could things be more messed up.

    Does a culture based on separation and competition, of scientific sophistication and mideval religion, offer happiness even as it ravishes the Earth that sustains it?

    Bob's screen name used to be "Python" until he had the reduction surgery.

    Ohin3 came from a friend of mine. We talk on MSN alot and I have a habit of hitting the 3 while hitting enter. She has a habit of trying to type too fast and a recurring typo that comes out Ohin when typing Phil. There you have it...Ohin3!

    I enjoy surfing and mac came from my last name and kinda nick name. My last name is McMinn pronounced MacMinn so all my buddies always called me Mac. Surfmac just stuck as a screen name all through high school.

    When we moved across country they lost our furniture . So we had to buy a new computer to look for jobs . My new computer desk was a lawn chair and a igloo cooler .When I purchased a game to play I needed a screen name , hence Igloo .Better than Gott .

    One of my other popular screen names is directBooze. Needed a screen name for something one night and I looked down at the corner of my desk to find a direct box ( gear used for recording instruments direct to mixer ) and a glass of scotch. the scotch glass was covering the word box perfectly...so directBooze I became.

    I was a Jefferson County Security Officer for about 10 years.
    One day I had to shoot a large rabid dog that was about to attack some of the road laborers.
    I drew and fired western style and put 1 round behind his right ear from 112 feet.
    He dropped on the spot.

    After that everyone started referring to me as "The Pistol Packer".

    Rush is one of my all-time favorite bands. "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" is one the songs off the "Fly By Night" album.

    Not sure why I chose Bytor...I should have chosen Professor Pratt!

    The screen name should really be the possessive: Cortez' attic.
    It's from Goethe's tragedy, Faust, with an attic being a metaphor for the mind.
    A stupid choice, really. I guess I was having one of my senior moments, which come all too frequently these days.
    I'm gonna go have a bowl of H&H's Louisiana Red -- that'll make me feel better about it.
    Now if I can only remember where I put that jar...

    I've used "classicgeek" here and there for years. I'm a systems architect/programmer by trade (hence the geek) but I play classical guitar from time to time and between pipe smoking, hot shaving and other pursuits which recall a different age, I like to think I put a classic spin on the stereotype...

    But you can all call me Simon. classicgeek doesn't mind.

    I’m a fairly flatulent fellow, always have been. Some people can bend spoons with their mind, I can do it by breaking wind after eating strong cheese. One night, I was out with the boys tying one on and eating White Castle hamburgers (forbidden to be sold in Iraq due to their gastronomical potential to be turned into a chemical weapon) and came home and fell asleep on the couch. Well, the body does what it needs to do and I woke with the need to recycle. I was sitting on the can producing a lethal fog in the room (naturally, I am immune to it). I didn’t know grandma was staying over and she wandered into the bath room after I was done with it. The rest of the family knows to hit the venting button (not your average vent, but an industrial one). She lost her sense of smell in the big war and with the lights out, didn’t see the mist hanging in there. Being 97, she didn’t have the strength to make it back out. The EMT’s arrived, put on their HAZMAT suits and dragged her out and sealed the room to contain the environment. From then on, during the middle of the night, you can see grandma’s ghost in there, surrounded by the mist. Hence the name, HauntedMyst.

    @dunendian:

    That's very interesting. Every time I saw your screen name I was reminded of Tolkien's work with creating languages for Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion. dun-adan: "Man of the West", dun-edain plural. Tolkien's languages were based on Old English, which as I understand it is closer to Finnish than Germanic or Romantic languages.

    Makes me want to pick up the Silmarillion again.

    J Cosmo Asp: Given the name "The Asp"in college in part due to a sharp-tongued, quick wit and partly in honor of one of Daddy Warbuck's (Orphan Annie) scary friends who made people and problems disappear. I added the J Cosmo so I could use it as an alias in the late 60s and early 70s.

    From Wikipedia: "Other major characters include Warbucks' right-hand men, Punjab, an eight-foot native of India, introduced in 1935, and the Asp, an inscrutably generalized East Asian, who first appeared in 1937."

    If you think you can or can't do something, you're right.

    Well, I had put that in my welcome to the forum post, but anyway for 14 glorious years I had the privilege of owning a Chocolate Labrador Retriever named Hobie. His Grandfather was featured in the book, "The Complete Labrador Retriever" and was one of only 4 color photos in the book. ( he was the only Mexican and American Dual Champion ). Hobie was not only a great retriever, he was a picture perfect Pointer as well. Great family dog, and just a true character, hung like a race horse, sired 34 pups along the way. I can't bring myself to get another one, as there is no way another one can even come close to comparison with him. He was #1, hence the screen name.

    Its a nickname from some of my german speaking friends that i got when i was 5 or 6 and remembered it recently when one of said friends contacted me. I remember them calling me "The Mouse" in german, and it somehow twisted into Mausee. It could've been worse, one of the boys on the block was "Schwein"

    Menckenite is a homage to one of my favorite authors (H.L. Mencken) who's work I find very humorous and profound. I wouldn't want to define the man or his work with few selected one liners but here's a few:

    "Every election is a sort of advance auction of stolen goods."

    "Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under."

    "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

    "The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule."

    My screen name is a combination of two things my Grandpa used to call me. Sometimes he'd call me Dudley and other times he'd call me Dipstick. Sometimes he'd say "Dudley Dipstick".

    I explained all this once to an ex of mine and she said my Grandpa sounded like a mean man. What she wasn't aware of is that if my Grandpa ever wanted to say a mean thing about anyone, the term he used was "No Account".

    He was a great man and my screen name is a tribute to him.

    He also enjoyed Prince Albert, Half & Half, & SWR. Preferably in a cob or the bad-ass Falcon he owned.

    My screen name is one that I've used for years on many forums. It's easier for me to remember this way. I can't remember why I started using. I know. It's kinda lame compared with everyone else, but it's all I've got. Sorry.

    Years ago, my sister in-law called me a BUM mostly because I had long hair and a beard. 40 years ago, I had lotsa hair.

    Later I would hang out on the PATIO to schmoke.

    When I registered a username on a cigar board, I picked PATIOBUM. I still enjoy our patio when the weather is nice.

    Now, I schmoke in my HAM room in any weather. Air conditioned and heated, seperate from the house system with a vent fan in the ceiling ducted to the outside.

    Also, we have 6 grandboys that call me POP. I changed my callsign to n5pop.

    It's amazing, the diversity of the roots behind everyone's screen names.
    To those who's were "given" their monikers by others in their lives... I'm just glad that some of the names people have used in reference to me didn't stick.
    I've had several nicknames over the years, e.g. Hotbrains, 103, Wizard, Sh*t Head and other's, but I'll leave that sleeping dog alone.

    Keep'em coming guys I love this string.

    One day my friend decided that everyone was to be called by a new nickname in relation to their favorite animals, I was given the name "tricksters Red Fox" because of my uncanny ability to pull spontaneous practical jokes( my latest of which, was convincing my friend that i broke my leg from falling off a mountain XD. Anyways, the name has stuck for the past five years and i'm more used to being called red than anything else. So it seemed appropriate.

    I would be almost inclined to say yes....there are not very many Rideouts in the US. So more than likely, if you trace back across the pond to England, and go back in time a little ways, you would probably be able to link us to a mutual relative...lol...of course being from WV, I am almost afraid to say we are all family...;p

    My avatar and scren name honor the late prolific writer, raconteur, and prodigious pipesmoker Christopher Morley. He was a Delaware Valley bative who never lost his fascination with the everyday world around him. He found humor and compassion, and a slight tinge of the bizarre, in people. He proposed the three hour lunch as a goal for the literate and indolent, yet was never idle. If i had to pick a father figure, Morley was my choice.

    I am also a fan of tea and I wrote a lot of artivles and such for tea magazines. I have a personal love for an Irish tea called Barry's Gold that I am seldom without a cup of with me and I love it strong and black. The tea forums started calling me Strongirish short for strong irish tea and the handle stuck all these years.

    I was lucky to be accepted to go to Exeter University at 38 to do a degree in Archaeology. While I was there I was encouraged to get an email address, other than the Uni one, so I got a Hotmail account. The ID I chose was excav8tor, since I found myself excavating a number of trenches during the 3 years I studied there.

    By the way Abe, I just tried that out and it came up with Lord Charlie McArney Thumpston IV.... I'm OK with excav8tor!

    I hope to utilize my pending degree in aerospace engineering to one day help America tame the wild frontier that surrounds our planet.

    This screen name is based on a video game character class. The prinnies from the Disgaea franchise.

    A prinny is a small, usually blue, pouch-wearing penguin-like creature with disproportionately small bat wings, two peg legs where feet would normally be and stitches next to the mouth. When thrown, they explode on impact.[2] A common trait of prinnies is their upbeat attitude and frequent use of the word "dood" as an interjection. They constantly end their sentences with "-ssu" in the Japanese game versions' dialogue. Prinnies stand roughly three feet, three inches (100 cm) tall, though the weight can vary.[3] Prinnies attack with knives, bombs, and occasionally other weapons stored in their bags.[3] While rarely mentioned in the game, prinnies have been known to dispense a beverage known as prinny juice, which according to a Nippon Ichi Software America interview is produced from "the most flavorful and delicious parts of our fresh, vine-grown Prinnies".[4]

    >.> several friends have told me that I remind them of a prinny due to the large amount of sharp pointy things I tend to carry about my person and my odd sense of humor.

    That explains a lot, Exploding Penguin.

    When I first saw your name, I had thought maybe you were a Linux user.

    I am also a lover of tea and I am very active in that community as well. I have written a lot of published articles on tea. My favorite tea is Barry's Gold from Ireland and I always have a very strong cup of this at hand and that community nicknamed me Strong Irish. This was 15 years ago and it just stuck and I stayed with it.

    I have an 8pt. Buck hanging on my wall at home and 67 is the year I was born. Hunting and spending time at deer camp is one of my hobbies so I kinda adopted the name for myself. Don't really know why I chose the little short bus kid from Deliverance for my avatar, maybe he looks relaxed. Kinda like me when I'm smoking my pipe.

    Mine is fairly self-explanatory I guess.
    But living in Florida the question that is always asked is "Where are you from?" Because 90% of people living here are from somewhere else. Im constantly having to point out that I was actually born here in 1962....god Im getting old....
