Was the first name I ever chose - in 1997.
My initials - JM
My ex's initials JD
Number of my address - 280

I-am-a-panda. I bet I was the one you were looking for.

In an Episode of south park, a character called 'Sexual harassment Panda' came on. He said things like 'I'm a saaaadd panda'.
Once I applied these things to real life, people said 'What are you, a panda?'.
My answer was 'I am a panda'. Hence the name I-am-a-panda.

I use one username for every site I go on. This makes it easy to people from one site can recognize me on another. It's obscure enough that odds are it is not going to be taken.

My cousin first set me up an email address when I was 13, he picked the username to be s0m31_13, as in "someone 13".

When I turned 14, I changed it to s0m31_14.
At 15 it became s0m31_15.

I realized it was kind of dumb to change it every year, so I just made it s0m31john.

Great forum question.

Handsoff my property and my personal life. Dems want your property while the repubs want your lifestyle freedoms.

I don't believe you, I think you are really 31. That makes your thread about anime child porn more disturbing. ;)

My username is simple, first initial followed by my last name. This is the same username I've used since I first discovered the internet back in the nineties. Sometimes it appears as JBlake1084. The 1084 is the month and year I was born. Lacks creativity, huh.

I used to own a site called "Political Joe", a play on "average Joe". I went by the pseudonym "Poe Joe", hence my username.

Unfortunately, this was all before Joe the Plumber, and Joe Six Pack, and all the other Joes...

Lab Rat was my great grandfather's nick name in WW2.
It was 2:28 (According to my Grandmother) when he lost his leg in Europe. She said he told her he was looking at the clock when the bomb hit, fragment of the bomb casing embedded in his leg.

It is just the first word that I came up with really. It's a word that I used as a Party Poker account long ago, and since then, it's become my internet name... Including cites like:

ebay
youtube
nflonline.org
Party Poker
PokerStars
DoylesRoomPoker
(pretty much all poker cites)

although, when I forget my password, sometimes I add a '2' after it (like youtube and ebay).

I used to own a site named AskBob that would answer anyones random questions on anything.

I had scissorhands7 just because I enjoyed watching that movie.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Can I ask you questions then??
1. How long is a piece of string
2. How much wood could a wood-chuck chuck if a wood-chuck could chuck wood?

1. From length from one end of the string in question to the other end.
2. This is difficult to question answer. The amount of wood that woodchucks would chuck on a given day varies greatly with the individual woodchuck. According to a Wall Street Journal article, New York State wildlife expert Richard Thomas found that a woodchuck could chuck around 35 cubic feet of dirt in the course of digging a burrow. Thomas reasoned that if a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck an amount equal to 700 pounds.

I use my real name. It's easy for me to remember. Most people should not use their real names for fear of harassment or abuse. I'm too old to care.

I use the anime character Hajime Saito from the Rurouni Kenshin series as an avatar. Saito is notably competent and unencumbered by political correctness. He cuts through the fluff and gets right to the heart of problems. I will grant that for a policeman he is a bit weak on Miranda rights.

My name is crackofdawn. I used to be tHEdARKdEATH for gaming but for obvious reasons that would kinda not fit in on this website. So I started to try and think of a name and then it hit me. No I don't like crack. I always wake up right when the sun comes up, or the crack o' dawn. They don't let you use the ' sign so I just made it crackofdawn.
A man comes to a fork in a road. . He ends up going left where he is ran over by a car. Another person comes to the same fork and decides to right. He also gets ran over by a car. A third person comes to the same fork. He decides that walking up a road in the dark is not smart and takes the grassy middle of the fork. He survives.

Moral: Don't be an extremist, neither side can be right all the time. Sometimes, you have to make your own path.

A while back, I got into mythology and symbolism and found out that every element has its own personality. Wind is intelligent and calm, while sometimes sarcastic and cold. So that is my element, and I figured I'd throw a zeppelin lyric in to the mix.

Oh tangerine_sunshine_1971, I vote your name best up here, but if you would have made it 1970 since that was when zeppelin 3 came out, or maybe 1973 (DSOTM) it might have been a tidbit cooler. Im just kidding, 1971 was a good year, especially because of "runes".

Karthikthegeld doesn't flow together really well, so I shortened Karthik to Karth. A friend of mine used "thegeld" at the end of his usernames. He said I should do it too, so I did.

Trust me, I doubt it is just us that think this. As hard as it might be for you to realize that. The arrogance thing again.

Similarity in thoughts are to be expected especially on a site such as this. My eyes are focused not upon your thoughts, but upon your style; the means by which you portray your thoughts are what concern me.
