Greengoo is my avatar.  I got it from a computer game series that I keep on an old 486 just for historical sake(and it's fun).  The game series is the DOOM series from I.D. Software.  I used to love putting in the god mode codes and wandering through the green radioactive goo.  There you have the reason right there, put the green and the goo together and you get me, greengoo.

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.

When I was still a squid (In the Navy for you non-squids), I use to drink heavily and raise hell everywhere we went. My buddies told me I was madder than a #&*# house rat! Hence came Damad1!

Now, I drink less but am still crazy, and like to verbally cut on my co workers pretty ruthlessly, so the Character Cartman is a good example.....Also, I only live about 50 miles from the real South Park, Colorado!

COTOB - Church Of The Open Bottle

I frequent this church often, often a refridgerator or nearby snow bank depending on the season.

I never would have thought after years of traveling that I would end up being the contract Radiological Engineer in charge of a decommissioning project.  Thats how I came by mine.  The past seven years is the longest I have ever been in one location my entire adult life (some would question if I have reached adulthood, but that is another discussion).  Southeast Michigan is pleasant in the summer but when the leaves fall, it isn't very pretty ;)

I used to participate in "extracurricular" activities during my college days.  *cough*, and it's my first username. Hence "prime".  Besides...."King of Crunk" was already taken by my avatar here.

Short for Beta_effective...This avatar is an obvious reference to reactor physics, and was originally used for online play in Starsiege. In its shortened form it is the avatar I use during online play in Mechwarrior Mercanaries...I have been asked what a Beta_effect is online and I reply "skin burns."

Got my handle back in 1980 at Surry working the turbine bldg during a genny replacement, I had the hots for a young gal named Becky C. and since I was trying to impress her all the time, she and Chuck Foltz(i think) labeled me with the Turbine Cowboy nickname and it stuck.

Gee, I'm not sure? Let me look at my security badge, oh yea, my folks had to claim me because they knew no one else would. I use my own name so when I say something stupid (most times) everyone knows who it's comming from, I like to be straight up about my opinions. Also this is a great way for folks to find me.

wow...all these cool stories and all i can say is mine came from smashed up computer terminology when cobbling a screename together that wasnt taken when i first got online back in the old days of dial up

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.
It is a well-known fact that although the public is fine
when taken individually, when it forms itself into large
groups, it tends to act as though it has one partially
consumed Pez tablet for a brain.

My friends used to call me "Daniels'an", as in The Karate Kid.. No. I don't do karate, but it was better than "Spider-Dan", the name I aquired in 5th grade because a substitute teacher didn't know my name, but saw that I was wearing a Spiderman tee. I shortened it to Danielson.. 13 is.. Just a cool number. And FX came from a username I use in gaming (Diablo II and such) which used to be grafexfx (graphics effects ;) ), but is now grafexmaster... Yeah. Heh.
