    people have some crazy ass nicknames around here, let's take a moment to share.

    I'll go first...

    Silverchild79:

    79 was actually the year I was born. when I was stationed in the UK I hung out allot with this group of guys who used to freestyle all the time. They all had names and I was constantly trying to think up one for myself. I never could think of anything useful till one day at a party some extremely drunk guy called me "Silver". Add child cause I'm a baby face and there you have it

    *PUNT* your turn!

    I had a B16, I raced with it, and I tuned it. Hence, B16RacerN2NR. N2NR = and tuner.

    I think he means your screenname..

    as for me, Senate is an inline skating brand that makes clothing, accessories, wheels, etc. I used to be really into inline, so i used that as my name for my email. "9427" was the last 4 digits of my old cell phone. When i registered on here, i thought i was just gonna come on here a few times for some info, so i needed a name i could remember, and well, that didn't happen.

    Chestercheeto48

    Chester - this name came from frat cabin party where me and the gang were hanging out around a campfire drinking beer. About my 4th pitcher of beer more buddies showed up, one carrying a family sized bag of cheetos so I ate them....ALL. More drinking ensued, leads to powerful projectile vomit, orange in color. Now you are starting to under stand.

    Drinking -> Cheetos -> puking -> next morning being called -Chester the cheetah -> shortened to Chester.

    Chestercheeto48 was the hotmail name that was spit out.

    has it always been "bob vila"? i thought it was something else a long ass time ago.

    mine came from an email address. pretty simple. if you wanted to email me it was just how to "get nick at hotmail." yeah, it's lame, but it was something i could remember. i'm not the brightest crayon in the box.

    I've had an online Alias since I was 6. that was .. 1982.

    Started off as a Password / Name confusion. My handle was supposed to be "Zaphoid" (Robotic / Zaphod Beeblebrox), but my password was "Streak". My name became "Streak" by accident and I accepted that just fine.

    Then came "Liquid Plejades" from a Tangerine Song. Then quickly came "pHaedra" (Another TD song, but "Phaedra" is a poem by Ovid as well. I chose "pH" out of a typo"). "pHaedra" was a great name, but a female name and I got cybered all the goddam time.

    "Celerity/Alacrity" were my IRC names (Where I had to change it because of everyone trying to cyber with me ). They both mean the same thing: With a swiftness. Celerity makes perfect sense given my personality.

    And there you have it. I do get called "Cel" many times in real life.

    I had a crx, and the license plate is yem, now "YEM" is the title of one of my favorite songs from a band I listened to in the 90's and followed/toured from 95-2004

    Trying to come up with a name for myself for the DWANGO gaming BBS in 1996:

    Me: What should my name be?
    Friend: How about, The Dark Hand?
    Me: ...Cool!
