    No great story here... my friends call me JC and for a time I was in real estate, which meant networking in places like twitter hence jcsoldit. BTW… I despised twitter and considered it a waste of time for me anyway.

    As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

    Nemrod is an alternative spelling for the Mesopotamian hunter and king Nimrod (who built the tower of Babel) and I guess most would associate my nickname with that. It's, however, completely unrelated (I didn't even know of it until long after I started using it). My father used to be a sport diver and when I was younger he used to put all kinds of related stickers on the side of a bookshelf that was in my room. One that I particularly liked was from a Spanish scuba gear manufacturer by the name of Nemrod (it was written with a lowercase 'n' on the sticker, and I still use it that way) and when I was 15 or so I started using that as a handle on the internet.

    edit: I found a picture with their company name written as I remember it:

    Well, years ago I quit college to pursue a music career. I eventually came close to getting a record deal in 1998 with my band Lizard In A Bottle. Now I own a painting company in Central Florida. Although quitting college pissed off my parents, I wouldn't change a thing. I lived the rock-n-roll life for years and had a great time. nabottle

    I like the band name. My Gran told me years ago . We are who we have made ourselves. It's a waste of effort looking back at what might have been. I agree! Live for today. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Also eat dessert first!

    Well I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan and it was pretty much Gandalf in the trilogy that got me itching enough to try pipe smoking, so when I signed up here I thought it'd be kind of a funny play on words with my influence of Lord of the Rings.

    When a youngster ( many moons ago ) I was possessed with "Devilment"............... Dictionary ..... ..Devilment = reckless or malicious behavior that causes discomfort or annoyance in others. mischief, mischief-making.

    When ever my parents took me to see Granddad & Grandma I got... "here he comes, the young Scallywag!! "............... So there you have it, the 58 is my year of birth...

    Oddly, and slightly embaressingly enough, mine is due to a university society based around Pirates. And as a Captain of the Pirate Society, I needed a Captain's name and so this is what I went with. Captain 'Black Sam' Bellamy was a 17th/18th century pirate opperating around the Jamaica's. I'm fairly sure he has a wikipedia article, even.

    Baron Samedi is the Vodoun Loa of Death who controls the gateway between life and death. I'm a mortician and I used to play in a Death Metal band so it works out for me. From Wikipedia: "He loves smoking and drinking and is rarely seen without a cigar in his mouth or a glass of rum in his bony fingers."...Fits me to a T.

    "Kashmir" comes from Led Zeppelins' Physical Graffiti, recorded in 1974, at Headley Grange, Hampshire, UK, thanks to Ronnie Lane's Mobile Studio. Eight minutes and 31 seconds of pure energy! Although today Kashmir is not exactly a place I'd like to visit, it once stood for something else.

    I suppose for me its not going to take a lot of effort. I've been a punk of some sort since I was 8 and I heard Television's Marquee Moon for the first time, Since then I've slowly adapted more to the lifestyle. And as my ultimate summation of the punk identity I reject the punk need to reject all thats gone before, in search of something that suits my needs and that makes me a better person, hence why I took up the pipe. I'm never going to be one of those fool with a garish mohawk who spits on anyone who seems respectable. Punk rock changed my life. and it made me into a soft spoken, patient young man who likes nothing more than to watch the sun go down with a glass of rum, a pipeful of gold blend and Black Flag on the ipod.

    tabbaq

    "The Spanish word tabaco is thought to have originated in Taino, the Arawakan language of the Caribbean. In Taino, it was said to refer either to a roll of tobacco leaves (according to Bartolome de Las Casas, 1552), or to the tabago, a kind of Y-shaped pipe for sniffing tobacco smoke (according to Oviedo; with the leaves themselves being referred to as cohiba).

    However, similar words in Spanish and Italian were commonly used from 1410 to define medicinal herbs, originating from the Arabic طبق tabbaq, a word reportedly dating to the 9th century, as the name of various herbs."

    About 17 years ago my girlfriend at the time was a computer graphics artist for Readers Digest so she was up to date on what was happening in the cyberworld at work. She decided she wanted to start freelancing so she saved up and bought a Mac to use at home. One night she says I should have a look at the "Internet" whatever that was.

    Fast forward a couple of weeks and now I'm online everyday looking at all sorts of stuff, especially hunting and fishing. I log onto Compuserve, a forum based website at the time, sort of an AOL competitor. The hunting forum was an interesting read so I hung out there and one day noticed a group of guys planning an SPH, a Steenkin' Peeg Hunt!

    Apparently every year a group from across the country would meet in Phoenix and, hosted by a local outdoor writer, they would get a caravan going and drive into the desert on one of the Apache reservations and spend a week camping, hunting javelina (steenking peegs) and quail.

    This piqued my interest so I sent an email to their leader stating I would be interested for the next years hunt if they had an opening. He wrote me back saying he would put me on the list for the next year should an opening arise. About 2 weeks later I got an email back telling me that someone had dropped out at the last moment and if I wanted to come this year I was welcome. Without a second thought I sent off my money and started making plans.

    At this point friends of mine began to ask " so let's get this straight Rob, you're flying out to AZ to spend a week in the desert with a bunch of guys you've never met before, to go hunting? Rob, did you ever see Deliverance?"

    As it turns out they were, and still are a great group of guys, we still meet every few years, I made some very good friends.

    So the second or third time I was out we set up a 100yd shooting range and at midday, after lunch we would do some target shooting and try out some of the interesting guns these guys had made up, liberal laws in AZ. One friend, Mike, was seriously into handgun hunting and had a single shot pistol chambered for something called the .338 JDJ, basically a handgun used for shooting elk.

    Mike asked me if I wanted to try it out so I loaded up, took aim and pulled the trigger.

    It's amazing how fast the human mind reacts, I remember hearing the gun go off and having time to say to myself, "ah shit, this is going to hurt".

    At the time I didn't have much experience with handguns so I was not holding it tight enough. The gun came right back up in my face and the hammer spur caught me on the left side of my nose, I was lucky it missed my eye. There was blood everywhere. The boys got real serious and inspected me carefully, determined it was a superficial wound with a lot of blood and cleaned me up and bandaged me. About 30 minutes later the jokes started and I have been Recoil Rob to this day.

    Ernest: Well, yes I must admit I smoke.

    1980, in the USMC I was told to come up with a "screen name." I asked what the hell is that. Was told they were setting up an account on the base computer system. I asked what the hell that was. At that point Top Reinhard said just give me a damned name.

    My name is Mark Allen Duncan and I love to fish for sharks from the beach, so madshark was born. I have used that for better than 30 years.

    To RecoilRob: I owned a 338 JDJ in a 14" barrelled Thompson Center Contender. Made my longest shot ever with that pistol. 430 yds. on a coyote. 338 JDJ is an aftermarket cartridge designed by JD Jones for the TC Contender. It is a 444 Marlin brass necked down to .338 caliber. Mine would fire a 200gr bullet at 2400fps. and dump 3 rounds into one ragged hole at 100 yds. Pretty potent medicine from a handgun.

    When I was a kid I loved to play baseball. I was always the fat kid that got picked last in the sand lot... I couldn't play very well but I had fun. I was smart enough to surround myself with good players and I'm not sure how I made it on the same team year after year with most of the same guys. The only thing I was really good for was my bat. Not always, but mostly, I could knock the cover off the ball. One year we played in a tournament and we were winning the tournament; it came down to the last game and we were down by one. I came up to bat and had a clutch homer that won the game for us. Since then, the name stuck with my friends and family! And you thought I liked CLutch Cargo...

    I'll add one... my avatar... I like the Steampunk genre books movies and "stuff". I'm not "into" it, I just like it...

    I love steampunk movies. Have you seen "Howls Moving Castle"? clutch.
    Ok now that I am here I guess I could go through the tale of it. The name locopony as it were. Well in short its a homage to my uncle. He is a truck driver who use to train horses, and was quite good at it. Because he could break any horse no matter how wild. With out the violence and risk of injury to man and beat that bucking one brings. He had the spirt of crazy horse.
    I took the name to pay my respect for one of the only adults I held in regard in my youth. He taught me lessons of life without the stupid yelling and controlling resentment building drill sargent routine. Simply working together, and asking questions that caused me to come to the logical correct answer.

    Years ago I road alot of motorcycles I did not have a car and living in the state of Wisconin I road in snow as much as I did in summer. I was nuts on that thing, did alot of jumping,like hills,rivers,just about anything in front of Me. Friends started clling Me Road Ace and it got down to Ace. I was born in 1957 so there it is Ace57. I no longer do motorcycle jumping but now I feel all the bumps and pot holes of years gone past but pain is just weakness leaving your body. Would'nt give up all My menorys for anything in the world not even My pipe, well I might. HA HA Rod (ace57)

    Cortezattic, nothing wrong with good story, I'm practicing some writing skills. Only drink decaf, only smoke legal stuff for over 30 years now. Favorites would be Sullivan Powell Gentlemens Mixture, Ashton Pebble Cut and Malthouse for dessert.

    Madshark, the year after my run in with his .338JDJ Mike, the owner of that particular gun (Contender), took his first elk with it.

    I own and built a 1966 Triumph Bonneville bobber. The name on the leather seat is "Riff-Raff", because it seemed to suit the bike (not me..) and that is my favorite Bon Scott AC/DC song.
    I'm sort of regretting my choice of names, when buying/swapping pipes I'm afraid it might give a bad first impression.

    Used to take flying lessons and was (and still am to some extent) a flying nerd, hence the "wannafly".
    34 was my number when I played freshman basketball...the only season I played. That would be due to hitting one bucket the entire season, at the last game of the season...

    Regarding the cat of Obergefreiter Joseph Porta

    from the series of books involving the adventures a Nazi SS Panzer penal battalion during WWII, as written by Sven Hassel.

    'Joseph Porta, Corporal by the grace of God in the Nazi army' had a cat in one of the books by the name of:

    Obergefreiter Josef Vissarionovitch Stalin, or "Stalin the Cat.

    Porta's Cat is easier to type. It has been utilized on forums from times immemorial.

    When I first started playing PC video games, I need a clever name. So I thought, "Wouldn't it be ironic, seeing the loving Mister Rogers gun down people?" And thus I go by Mister Rogers.

    To put into perspective how close I am to this name, I look around when someone says "Mister Rogers," thinking someone called for me.

    Now, I've noticed a tendency for this forum to get rather silly.

    Well my nickname is Joe for Joel. The Hobo part is to remind me
    that for them to survive they had to read the signs left behind by
    others. Places to eat-rest-how tough the Lawmen were-friendly farmers-ect.
    That's what I took from them to survive also. Reading the signs and adjusting to them.
    I do not believe that they would jump a train going backwards. You have to be able
    to survive in two different worlds.
    Also my Mother( when getting bad grades in school ) would ask if i want to turn in to a Hobo ?

    I am an ordained minster. Hence, Revs is short for Reverend. I use it on any forum its available on. Pipes, straight razors, body modification(piercing and tattoos) and the forum for my motorcycle, a Kawasaki KLR650.

    when I pledge a fraternity my freshman year at college, they gave you a pledge name losely based off of your hobbies or personality. At the time I was really into RC cars, and nikko is a brand. I went by that name for the better part of four years and many of my friends still call me that. Naturally, it has become my go to name for things such of this nature.

    I think mine is pretty self explanatory. I love Sherlock Holmes and he is a pipe smoker so it seemed to fit. It was also a rhetorical choice to create a certain identity on this forum and in many ways my personality is like that of like Sherlock Holmes.

    Friend of mine was visiting, brought here granddaughter with her.
    Girl corners me and asks me if I'm as old as her "Grammy".
    Nope, older.
    In her little girl way she then goes on to ask if I'm as old as Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and a few other names from her current year in school.
    Each time I replied I was certainly older.
    After a few more rounds she asked about dinosaurs, same reply from me brought momentary silence followed by the poker-face delivery of... "Wow. You must be older than dirt!"

    She brought the house down with that one (-;

    Snus, snuff and briar.
    Not much more required in a day.
