I am a diehard fan of using matches to light my pipe. I absolutely hate using a lighter unless I absolutely have to. Plus, I loved Sam Rockwell and Nic Cage in the movie Matchstick Men. So there you have it.
Well my last name is shain and i love going to auctions and buying and selling antiques. I started doing ebay a few years back and my ebay name is a combination of the two. Hence shaintiques.
I think I have already done this one but I'll do it again " morlader " means Pirate in the Cornish language.
Smoke coming out nose and sides of mouth while I smoke,
Nicknamed SmokinDragon by the boyz
My name comes from the year I was stationed in Korea. I was assigned to the 80th FS at Kunsan, AB South Korea from 2000-2001. We were known as the "Juvats." 270 was the tail number of the F-16 I was assigned to as Dedicated Crew Chief.
Not sure why I continue to use that as my screen name. I've used it for many years now and it just sorta stuck.
i play a lot of video games, and uberam3rica is my online screen name. i use it for other thing too
The single worst actor on the face of the planet, I strongly believe that a shaved ape, with some extremely debilitating mental condition could act better than Nicolas 'I'll take any part I can get' Cage.
or Like Johnny Carson once said about Chevy Chase, " couldn't act his way out of a bar full of drunks" Chevy Chase was very upset to say the least.
well thinking this over-My screen name that I use is is used in other sites.
Back in the 20's-30,s, men used the rails to get to new opportunities also whole families.
That reflects the backbone of people going to the extremes of providing their continence
of living . most all had camps along the way.
Now some kept to the nomadic life-lot died-good many started a new life. They did not
sit on a couch and waited for a Government hand out. They did what their ancestors in
stilled in them and what people do to keep there promises of providing.
No you can not ride the rails or walk the highways today but the reflections of that hardships can stay the course to do what ever it takes.
My name is Dan. My family still calls me Danny. I'm an American of Irish extraction, proud of that heritage. And the Tuatha de Danaan (pronounced something like "two a day dan ahn") are the mythical not-quite-first inhabitants of Ireland--after the Firbolgs.
wish I could change mine...not very original
D is the initial for my first name which is dave. Hizzy is a crypted version of my last name given to me by a friend at work. It is a spoof on snoop dogg language. Some of you will know what Im talkin about. Not a rap fan but hey, it stuck!
My real name is Lanny Gilbertson. I am a sci-fi so hence the conversion of Lanny to Lando and Gilbertson to Gilbot.
When I was young a lady took to calling me jbird, as in jail bird, she thought I was heading for trouble and would end up in jail eventually.
Mine is simple I suppose. My fingers look like a big ol' spider climing up and down the fretboard of a guitar. I went by Silver until I had to stop driving truck.
My screen name is SALEWIS which are my first name initial, middle name initial and last full name. My actual name is Steve A. Lewis.
Sargeant Schultz..would say......"very interesting"
I played a crap ton of Halo during my highschool days and kept with it and then eventually read whatever books they came out with and I fell in love with the character so I adopted the name. After 300 came out everyone and their mom started using the name followed by the infamous line, "THIS, IS, SPARTA!!" I was ashamed of the name after all the 300 hype. But after it died down I feel better about it now.
In short....I'm a nerd who loves video games and well-written fiction books. Don't seem to have much time for either nowadays.
Mine is far too obvious to require explanation. LOL
"pipa" means Pipe in Swedish and "mannen" means man... Pipeman!
Do I really need to? Baskerville, Holmes, Get it?
so you a hound man?
if so what kind of hound?
Do I really need to? Baskerville, Holmes, Get it?
that's John Holmes right? he was from Bakersfield wasn't he?
ahh, I just looking for this thread. My screen name can be credited to our own Marmal4de. I have a disagreement with Latakia - I like it, body doesn't. So in an effort to force my body to like it, I am trying it in small doses to build up a "tolerance".
Marm mentioned how Ninjas in the days gone would ingest small amounts of poison in order to build up tolerance. Hence, I became the Pipe Ninja !!!
This is a name I created when playing original Starcraft years ago where my whole group came up with shapes for our names. I picked the eleven sided polygon and happily so because no one uses this SN and I now use it for everything!
Mines pretty self explanatory...HP Lovecraft is one of my favorite authors.
Pentangle is the name of a british folk progessive group ,at the same time pentangle is magic.I have had in use Jimi in the past on internet but recently has become unavailable so pentangle is not a second choice.
by the way Jimi was dedicated to Jimi hendrix that i love from 1968
On a cigar site I am known as cigardisciple so it made sense to be pipedisciple on this site. I love everything about pipes and cigars
When signing up, I had my pipe in my hand, just a simple guy.
J and P are initials for John Paul and I am a bass guitarist
The Greyface part used to be a band I hung out with. I was having trouble coming up with a gamertag, and at the time I had an avatar of Don Corleone from The Godfather;The Game, so I just put the two together. Don Greyface, I figured if you pronounced the last part with a bit of an accent, it would sound italian. So it stuck and I've used it for everything since then.
I got mine from the best dog I have ever owned, an American Pitbull Terrier whose name is Bongo Wardrum.
Usually I use icywallawalla which I took from the original Halo's default name "wallawalla". I modified it to icywallawalla because I need something for xbox live. And Logan means "little hollow" or "little cove" in Scots Gaelic. And if you couldn't already tell CollinDow and I are brothers he is the elder
I don't have to explain my screen name. What would you do if your real name were Thaddeus Percival?
Well, I was almost Edard William Love the Third, so Don't feel bad. Luckily the Irish Protestant contingent in my family (mom's side) shone through and I became Clinton (City on the Hill in Gaelic), while still having the last name Love, the name of the landed gentry (before the war of Northern Aggression) from my father. The Baron Samedi is the vodoun Loa of Death and I made a connection with that entity while in mortuary school. Although I am frequently addressed as Baron, most regular folks know me as Clint (foreigners calling me CLint From Texas, slightly erroneous, though as my family are Texians, I was born in Germany).
Vroomfondel is a very minor character from my favorite book "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by the late Douglas Adams. He is a slightly deranged, yet very damanding philosopher that coined two of my favorite sentences ever:
"We don't demand solid facts! What we demand is a total absence of solid facts. I demand that I may or may not be Vroomfondel!"
"We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty"
Hehe, makes me chuckle every time...
Yohanan is the Hebrew equivalent of the word John, Do I speak, read, or am I Hebrew? No. I just thought it would be a nice screen name for the boring name John, and for other personal reasons. Genesis 12:1-3
I make my living in the radio communications industry, and radio is one of my hobbies as well. The 807 was a widely used tube (valve) that served as an RF power amplifier and modulator. You radio types will know what a modulator is. For the rest of you, if I have to explain it you would then understand, although few have remained awake for the entire dissertation. So there you have it.
few words can sum it up; fly rod and nova scotia rivers and streams
My name says it all, I love both.
this is because I am a history graduate and my subject was mainly middle ages europe and asia
MY NAME IS KEN.

E for Ed(Edward) last name is James.
Last name is Cramp - so sideache is my screen name
Sideache, I see what you did there
Vroomfondel, I knew I recognized that name from some strange place ! Been many years since I've read it, but I've been through the entire Increasingly Inaccurately Named Trilogy many times myself
I never thought about it riptide is just a name i picked because when I use to play online games My Real name was always taken. and I love the ocean. My real name is Charles D. Wilemon II and that was just to long.
I'm still waiting on zanthal to explain his screen name to us
Zanthal has been my pseudonym in online circles for a long time now.
It's the name I gave a gnome wizard I played in Dungeons and Dragons, geez 11+ years ago ... I started with the name Nathaniel and made it odd.
My real name is Mike. Nice to meetcha
mattmars. I was lacking in creativity since it's just my first name and part of my last. On most every other forum (not pipe related) I'm known as KingSram.
rd is short for red
02 is the year of my car
SiR is the model.
Oh and Philip ... there's something to be said for having an unusual first name. Thaddeus or Thad is rather uncommon (at least here in California), but being named Mike is a pain in the ass. You can't throw a rock without hitting three Mike's around here.
Mike: thanks for the explanation, my son is trying to pick out names for the upcoming baby...what a struggle.
my son is trying to pick out names for the upcoming baby...what a struggle.
He's going to name your grandson Thaddeus Zanthal ???
My grandfather called me Bam Bam when I was little and it stuck. I've been called Bam Bam ever since.
Well you should figuer it out pjm is my name peter and the 03fatboy is one of my harleys
pjm, you've got a sweet looking ride there. Mine is a Heritage Classic that I wash at least once a year, whether it needs it or not. Ride safe.
My screen naw "profpar" is derived as follows: my name is Peter Alden Roessle (par); I am a professor of chemistry (prof).
So profpar is short for professor Peter A. Roessle
Currently in university studying engineering physics with a nanotechnology specialization, and I just like the number 471
Cause their was not enough room for Dr. Col. Sir Samuel Leach KM KC
My name of "oldmooner" is a combination of the fact that I am older than most of you (I really don't mind), a nickname that I have carried for over 50yrs. I had a career in the USAF and everyone has a "callsign" or nickname in the military. Mine was "Moon" and comes from two old comic strips called "Gasoline Alley" and "Moon Mullins". Since my last name is Mullins, I just naturally inherited the name. No one except my ex-wife and my Mother used my "correct" name.
Mines pretty boring compared, I've been a carpenter for about eighteen years, took out a few letters, and added a 1, dunno why but it seemed good at the time.
I'm a salesman....so what else
I have used Aristokles since the days of the Usenet and the old bulletin boards. It's supposedly Plato's real name and as I majored in Philosophy and Classical Greek (before returning to college for a degree in Finance) it seemed to fit my alter-ego.
