Usernames...how did you come up with yours??
« on: Sep 22, 2004, 01:48 »
Hey everybody,
Just wondering how you came up with your usernames!!!  For instance, my last name is Hooker, Hence the username Hooker.  I had it Nuclear Hooker, but I guess that was offensive to some of the "professionals"

If I have to tell anyone where my user name comes from, I'll exhume Bear Bryant!

(I have too many irons in the fire to enjoy college football appropriately this year, but I realized working out of state how fanatical the rest of the country would consider typical Alabama fan actions.)

I've been living in Austria for a few years now and I couldn't think of anything else to call myself.  :o

I was either too stupid or sleep starved and couldn't think of anything else. I guess it keeps me honest.

23 years of this business - what else would I be?

Those of you who know me, know my snow white tan makes Edgar Winter look like Lawrence Taylor. So the avatar comes compliments of the pet name, 
"Powder," Eric Simon tagged me with circa 1999 @ TMI.

I'd use my real name, Thomas Farrell, but it doesn't have the "color" I could use.

After many years of tears, I finally put myself in a secure place with money that I went last year and bought my first 03' Heritage Softail.

Mine is the way I usually use to teach people the pronunciation of my last name.

Bierkortte = Beer + Court.

My family actually pronounces it differently, but nobody would ever say it right if I tried to teach them.

I got my name from my Great-grandad when I was 3, with a slap upside the head for not answering him, when I had no idea who he was talking to.  Found out after the slap that that was what he was going to call me and have had the name since.    So, mine is a family tradition and I'll never forget him as long as others use his name for me with respect as he did to me!!!  He was a respectful, loving man.  I will never  forget him and will try to always keep his memory alive!!!

I registered when I was house at Calvert.  I'm sure plenty of folks have heard the term before, I was lucky enough to grab it before someone else.  Although I'm no longer house, I like the "handle" so I've kept it.

I was stationed on the Gilmore in 74' and one of the guys made up mailboxes for us. My name was too long to fit in the space so he took out the 'ark' and when I saw it, it was phonetically 'first'. I like that! Kept it ever since. I also use 'phurst one' or 'phurstone'

Mine came from the boys @ BV beacuse I tend to remember all different kinds of obcsure mindless trivial information that most would forget after they hear it.  It comes from the Rain Man movie.  So if you need to know the name of the actress who played the old gypsy woman in the original "Wolfman" movie PM me.

     I came up with mine from the Limp Bizkit song "Nookie" that was popular at the time. He "did it all for the nookie", and I did it all for the NUKIE.  ;)

Its a multiple pun. dark matter refers to the missing mass of the universe, proposed answers are W.I.M.P.s or MACHOS. (look it up at an astrophysics site). I also like Sci-fi (can't you guess that one?) And of course with most of my working having been a Nuclear Nomad Merc. the Bobba Fett Avatar fits right in. I have a sense of humor (no longer an asset at most utilities),



Update on dark matter theory: now the astrophysics say there are dense dark matter balls to explain missing mass and gravity effects.  (heh, heh, I could'of tol em that.)
