    Tokerpipes is just what I like to do.I toke on my pipe everywhere I go. it just fits...thats what she said also.

    If you can't pack it, light it, and smoke it then why do it. It's a dieing art that must be rekindled in all of us as fortold by our forefathers.

    Words to live by for all pipe smokers.

    I don't know how old you are, but "toking" means something entirely different to some of us who were alive in the 60s and 70s.

    Not quite the image we're going for, I don't think.

    My screen name has a double meaning. In the context of pipes I like the bent ones! Secondly my other passion is bicycles. One type of bike I really enjoy is called a recumbent, or "bent" for short.

    HP Velotechnik Street Machine, Made in Germany. Aluminum frame 27 speeds Spring front, fully adjustable air charged rear suspension. I've rode it 82 miles in one sitting. It's got about 2,200 miles on it now.

    Starting to feel as if my screen name is burning; may have to change it.
    Currently it is just my last name and my first initial.

Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

    After my second stint in college, I was doing some freelance web and graphic design work. I thought of the name Grafikchaos for my business, and had my own website and such. It was pretty much my design style, not to mention my work methods. So grafikchaos has been my screen name on the web for about the past 6 or 7 years.

    PITCHFORK, as in "pitchforks and torches." Although I'm not actively writing much anymore, I've used this handle ever since I started blogging about the financial crisis and the bank bailouts. I should probably leave it at that.

    Morton was the name of a German Shepherd pup that crawled out of his whelping box and lay down at my feet when he was 6 weeks old. I had to wait two more weeks to get him and then I had him for twelve years. He died two years ago and I miss him every day. I have Labs now, 4 of them and I love them all but Morton will always be a part of who I am.

    Mine is rather straight forward. For years I smoked nothing but English blends and collected English pipes, hence the name. Its also my user name on UK smokers forums and the IPPC. Not to many people take it so I just transfer it wherever I go.

    Oddly, I have not smoked many English blends in the past year or so, its all been VA/VAPERs.

    Well I've always found Stephen Colbert to be very funny, so I used America as my handle when I played Halo 2. Well there was this guy who was really good, and it pissed me and my buddies off. His handle was Uber Mike. So to irritate him we all put uber in our handle. So I became Uber America. Then when I tried creating my name on Xbox 360 the machine froze, and when I turned it back on, it said the name was taken even though it wasn't. So I added the 3 and became Uber Am3rica. It's my user name for almost everything I do

    S. W. Erdnase is a pseudonym used by the author of The Expert at the Card Table, a book detailing sleight of hand, cheating and legerdemain using playing cards. Still considered essential reading for any card magician, the book, known also as either the Bible or, commonly, just Erdnase, has been in continual publication since 1902. Erdnase's true identity is one of the enduring mysteries of the magic community.

    I've been studying card cheating techniques for 30 years. I performed close-up sleight of hand magic for many years for companies all over the U.S. While I no longer perform in public, I still practice my techniques while smoking a pipe!

    My father's name is Gary, so my Russian paternal name would be "garyovich", actually since I am a junior my full name would be "Gary Garyovich" but I just use the paternal for screen names. Oddly enough I'm actually Irish, but I went through an extended phase of obsession with Russian literature in college.

    Mine comes from a drug i have to take everyday. I have Ulcerative Colitis.

    Mercaptopurine (also called 6-mercaptopurine, 6-MP or its brand name Purinethol) is an immunosuppressive drug.

    Anyway i needed a screen name for something one day and everything i thought of was already taken and i looked at the box of pills and figured why not

    Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants, and slide on the ice.

    "Number Six" is from the 60s TV series "The Prisoner". The TV series was part psychological drama and science fiction. Without a doubt, the show offered great insights into the human condition. If you watched it today, it will seem extremely dated, but the main storyline is still brilliant.

    Interestingly enough, the ending of the series so outraged the British public, that the shows creator and star, Patrick McGoohan left England for good (but he still didn't regret the ending the series the way he did).

    Zirbengeist is a type of schnapps in the Austrian alps. Since one of my hobbies is mountain hiking and climbing I thought it was neat to find a drink from an ingredient that is only made in the alps. It tastes pretty good too.

    My screen name means "Rabbi Silver" in Hebrew. And, as it happens, I'm a Rabbi, so that's my title. Also, because many Hebrew words have more than one meaning, it also means "lots of money." The first definition is far more true than the second.

    It was my first email address. Don't ask how I came up with that. I suck at coming up with screen names. It didn't dawn on me to try my first name in some combo.....

    Girlfriend came up with it while playing cards (keeping score on a sheet). She actually said 'roudoudou gagnant' (winning roudoudou) as it sounds like a racehorse. Roudoudou stuck forever (she always calls me that, even in public).
