I have noticed some creative user names and was curious as to what inspired them? Mine is not so creative as it is a variation on my name.

I use Andromeda because it's the name of the closest galaxy to ours, and I used to be somewhat obsessed with outer space. The _Z is added because Andromeda was already taken (http://www.debate.org...) and I liked the way it looked.

I miss my old username :( but after making the mods go through the trouble to change it, I didn't want to ask them to change it back. I chose this username because I wanted to be a little enigmatic... then defeated the purpose by adding pictures of myself lol but it's just a little reminder to me that people on the internet (including myself) and their opinions about things are pretty insignificant.

In the grand scheme of things, my views have changed minimally since I've been here. I'm not here to change anyone's mind or to convince anyone to agree with me. That's why I get bored of arguments and forget about threads I was participating in, and don't really care to make time for debates. I'm just here to see different perspectives. And from what I've seen, most people stick to their views despite a debate about it.

Well I was wondering about askbob's name but since he hasn't given any hints I will take a stab at it. His real name is Robert, hence the Bob. We should ask him because he is very wise like Aslan, who is a lion, askbob looks like a lion apparantly, he also look-a like a man (could resist). Anyway I wonder about the origins of cliff.stamp and why merda would choose his username.

Askbob, is Bob your real name?

That is a good question and was just thought about that after I posted it. Nonentity sounds like a refutation of Cartesian philosophy.

Yeah, I remember that. I thought you were a pretentious, egotistical douche, and you unfriended me because I was a huge fascist. Good times.

Eh, I thought it sounded cool at the time but now I think its kind of dumb. The two words dont even flow well. I wont change it, but if I could it would be something much more simple, probably one syllable.

RIGHT.

When I first saw her new username and saw it was her, I thought it was a malfunction with the site.

Same for me. I wish I had just changed it to "Tulle" because that's what everyone called me anyway.
