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"

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.

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!!!

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.)

Mine is a story that requires some explaining.  I am orignally from Canada, and being Canadian a popular vacation spot is Cuba.  One of my best friends and his buddy went down to Cuba and met up with a couple of guys from Malta.

A few days go by and one of the Maltese guys keeps disappearing a few times a day for around an hour or so each time.  Further observance by my buddy showed that he was disappearing with a "professional" companion.

My buddy finally questions our "active" participant's friend regarding what is the story with our hero.

His answer was that his friend is an attentive husband at home, has wonderful children and a loving wife, but when he travels he is like a STARVING DOG.

I figured that when I was leaving Canada to move to the US of A that it would be easy for my buddy to remember an e-mail address that started with starving_dog.

I hope the Radbitch sees this, I can't remember if I told her how this all came about but she knows my username.

Regards all, I have to go protect my home from Hurricane Jeanne.

cpu was taken, central_processing_unit was too long, thus leave the c alone, make processor pross and leave u alone and thus became "Cprossu"

later my friends shortened it to "Cpro" when in chatrooms or playing games siince i knew so much about computers.

Mine comes courtesy of a buddy I have up hear at the Rock.  Originally he'd only call me "Junior" (and still does at times) - which got pretty annoying after, oh, the first time.  Then of course we got into a discussion one day about why my little four-banger 2WD S-10 shouldn't be north of 55 during the winter...  "Eight Mile," he said, "you're in the WRONG place."  I couldn't very well deny it, since I was, after all, at the Rock.  The Eight Mile nick was a reach to come to... consider the fact that the Marshall Mathers movie, Eight Mile, was released not too long before I started working here, and also consider the fact that evidently he thinks that anything near Detroit must be around Eight Mile Rd. (even Trenton, a good 20-some miles south of Detroit.)

Ah, well, must be all those days at deer camp - da beer makes him forget that there's a whole lot of area south of Eight Mile.

Now I have been out for awhile and work in Nuclear Pharmaceuticals, were I am a HPT and Nuclear Bio-Medical Electronics Calibration Specialist. Most of my fellow HPT and HPS are former Nukes in the navy working on reactors, so I am the odd ball of the bunch. I also seem to be the only one working on achieving my doctrine some day (Quantum Physics) and currently working on my BS in EE.  Plus I realy don't mind Global Thermo Nuclear War.   

Anyone for a nice game of Tic-Tac-Toe

I answered "Alberto V05" she laughed her butt off. I guess I was a little obsessed with the doo for a decade or two there. But, the next day she and several other fems on site began to refer to me as "Hairdude" and it stuck. Go figure.

The name "highradsnake" is rather easy to decipher. "Snake" is my nickname from my "crew" back in SW Pa. in the late 80's. The "high rad" part is from the mid to late 90's when an 18.1 senior assigned to balance of plant duties was not much more than a high radiation escort for any work group needing access to the area. I know that I'm making a generalization but I had more responsibilities as a new junior than I do now as a 3.1 senior. I understand that this is the way it is. :P

I've had mine so long I can barely remember..   lot's of folks never knew me by any other name, even after years working together... (A-Punk, I think you only learned my real name after you became my site coord wasn't it?)... 

but the truth is, back in the 70s i had a supervisor whose name i always misstated...   
when he asked me why, i just said he looked like a 'bob' to me...   
so he decided i looked like a 'gonzo'...  somehow it stuck..

in one instance it actually could've been useful..  in the late 90s when hunter thompson's book made a comeback, i walked into the front of pokey's computer store and asked for him.  the young gal at the front desk asked who was asking and i said 'gonzo'...   i guess she'd been reading thompson's book cuz she got a wide eyed look and asked if i was hunter thompson....    i don't know, maybe if i'd lied i could've got lucky.....

While in school, someone made a comment about wondering what neutrons taste like.  I said fast neutrons taste like peanuts.  Thenuttyneutron came from my answer.

Ex-Navy ET = Ex-Navy RO...∆ Rho or δρ = change in reactivity.  I was supposed to know at all times.

Now for something entirely different.  I wish I could remember the Rod Height song (sang to Raw Hide) we made up in HTFF class...

Something like:

Boiling, boiling, boiling...boiling, boiling, boiling...keep those nuclides boiling -- rod height.  My mind's calculating the xenon we're creating and    sadly, that's all I can remember. :-\ 

Anyway, back on topic...boring name.
The above has nothing to do with any real  or imagined person(s).  Moreover, any referenced biped(s) simulating real or imagined persons--with a pulse or not--is coincidental, as far as you know.

After 22 years in the Navy, I am known as a Lifer.  So I spelled out Navy Lifer as if it were my liscense plate.  Some people however, think I'm a Navigator because of the Nav part.  This is clearly not true.  I was a Weapons Officer and proud of it.  If you check out my summary page, it shows my sex as male so I couldn't have been a Navigator.  :)

Well first, I took the square root of my age and used the numbers and correlated that to the letters of the chinese alphabet.  Using my secret spy decoder ring I got out of a craker jack box when I was five I decoded the 18th word on every page of the book "Angels and Demons" by Mike Brown.  I transleted the Chinese to english and using the letters from that and from the decoded book I wrote all the letters on individual pieces of paper and put that into a bingo cage and turned the crank.  At this time I realized that it was becoming to much work so I decided to go with the first motorcycle I owned a 98' Buell S1 White Lightning.  The other formula was just not working out to well... kept coming up with jiberish.

St. Raphael
The name of this archangel (Raphael = "God has healed") Raphael (Standard Hebrew רפאל, "God has healed", "God Heals", "God, Please Heal", and many other combinations of the two words, Arabic: Israfil, اسرافيل) is the name of an archangel of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, who performs all manner of healing. The Hebrew word for a doctor of medicine is Rophe connected to the same root word as Raphael.

Of seven archangels in the angelology of post-Exilic Judaism, only Michael, mentioned as archangel (Daniel 12:1) and Gabriel are mentioned by name in the scriptures that came to be accepted as canonical by all Christians. Raphael is mentioned by name in the Book of Tobit, which is accepted as canonical by Catholics and Orthodox. Four others, however, are named in the 2nd century BC Book of Enoch (chapter xxi): Uriel, Raguel, Sariel, and Jarahmeel.

private joke with a friend

Then there is the story about how “Smart People” above got his screen name.  He got that from a story I shared with him, about an Experience I had passing through Tennessee.  I stopped at a fireworks stand, so that I could stretch my legs.  Fireworks are illegal in my state, and I was a young man, very interested in making things go boom.

The proprietor of the fireworks establishment was an older southern man, with a typical Tennessee accent.  He was as interested in me, as I was the fireworks.  He asked questions about my education, and was surprised to hear that I had graduated High School.  He was very interested to know that I worked in the nuclear industry.  He confided in me that he had only completed the 3rd grade.  Then he said; “I like being around smart people, that’s how I learn things.”

It gets better.

He followed me around the store, explaining to me what the various fireworks did, as I was unfamiliar with the forbidden fruit.  When the last couple left the store, and the door closed behind them, the man lifts up the skirt on a table to reveal some hidden fireworks below.  He tells me that they are illegal fireworks, but that he’ll sell them to me.  I asked him why they were illegal, and he replies that they “blow up in people’s hands”.  Really??  I graciously passed on his offer.

noun
formation of a word by imitating the natural sound associated with the object or action involved; echoism (Ex.: tinkle, buzz, chickadee, etc.)
the use of words whose sounds reinforce their meaning or tone, as in poetry

Now you know

So, by proxy, you got your name from a stainless steel hospital bedpan--I bet a lot of thought went into that!  (Pun intended)
The above has nothing to do with any real  or imagined person(s).  Moreover, any referenced biped(s) simulating real or imagined persons--with a pulse or not--is coincidental, as far as you know.

Well lets see.

Once upon a time, before I was married and had a kid, I used to have a nice little 1965 Ford Mustang coupe.  She was painted blue with white racing stripes.  Had a nice little V8 in her and horsepower to boot.  Decided to give her a name.  Her name was "Precious".

I got mine from working in brazil and getting paid 11 for 12 hours.The best part was no one knew anything about it until after they arrived in brazil and was a little late to turn around and back out.
It was funny how bartlett never told anyone about this while they were in the states.
Just my little tribute to them

North Anna, Fall 2007 outage, bungee cord rad rope at equipment hatch, I got distracted and didn't remove the "rope" while the containment coordinator and helpers were pushing out a B-25.  The box was almost all the way out the hatch when the "rope" popped over the top just as the containment coordinator raised his head.  He got smacked square on the chin by the plastic sign attached to the "rope".  Luckily there was only a little bit of blood.  My buddy Glenn Travor gave me the name.  BTW my first name is John.  Glenn drop me a line some time.

I'll refinish your floors,sell you tiger maple for a guitar, turn you a custom wooden pen,carve you a sign, or build you a cedar strip canoe. I can't walk slow enough to work DOE (yet), but am resigned to working outages until the economy picks up again.

Well, for those of you who know something about my current situation, here is my explination:
01, for one strike against me now, also the year I graduated HS,
Changeup, because I like baseball, and it represents the changes that I am making in my life after my little problem.  I used to just do whatever I felt like, and ran through life without looking where I was going, like a fastball.  Now I am doing the oposite, thus, a changeup.  Also, Baseball is my new hobby to take the place of my old, destructive (on a personal level) "hobby."

Let me think!!!!!!!

Oh I remember......I retired about 5 years ago and started working as a consultant.  Was licensed for ~25 years and my consulting work is centered around projects that need SRO experience.  Hence the name.
