My other hobby is racing cars. My '01 Camaro SS came with an LS1 engine. At the time I got it, a lot of the Camaro owners on the forums I surfed had older cars with LT1 engines. gotls1 was sort of a "got milk?" taunt.

Depending on how well you recall your Jr High reading assignments, the character is relatively well known.

Why did I choose it? Well, back in my early days in this medium (when a 1200 baud modem was screaming!) I detected a tendency among a percentage of the on-line population to [ahem] overstate their personal knowledge, experiences, and etc.. So as a not-too-subtle jab at a particular situation I would don my "Walter Mitty" persona and pontificate ad nauseum on something I could obviously and gloriously know nothing about. It certainly gave me a chuckle.

As time has gone by I have stuck with it because I get a laugh out of it every once in a while. Someone will ID the character and make some funny comment. It also serves as something of a reminder of where I am and who we all may be.

Back when I was in college P. Diddy (Puff Daddy, Puffy, Diddy, etc...Sean Combs) was all the rage amongst the cool kids. I got the name B Piddy, cause it fits really good with my first initial and last name. Just kinda stuck among me and my friends. I don't even like his music, or rap/hip-hop, but whatever.

I'm stubborn and "stick" with things until I get them right.After the guys that work for me saw the movie Animal House many years ago,the "boss" got a new nickname.

You can't use your real name in my shop if you work for me,takes all the fun out of it.I have people with names like Rat,Foureyes,Yo Momma,Dumbass,makes work much more fun.The customers laugh like crazy when I tell Rat to go get Dumbass and look at that engine or whatever....LOL!

You can only use that name if you can belch for longer than 2 minutes.

Since I stole youcomings screen name I feel compelled to explain why I use BigUgly. I played and coached football in my younger years. I was an offensive lineman and coached offensive lineman at the high school level. The great college football commentator Kieth Jackson coined the term Big Uglies to refer to the offensive lineman who battle in the trenches every play. They only get recognized when they screw up by way of a penalty for illegal motion or holding. They usually never receive any recognition for a job well done. They are the unsung hereos most of the time during a football game. It's the pretty boy skill players that get all the press. The O-line players are usually big and ugly (cause they are smashing heads every play) and don't care what they look like and take pride in the job they do albiet quietly. BigUgly to me has a pride factor to it, cause I am not embarrased by being a big guy and I really don't give a hoot how I look(hence a fat guy wearing spandex out in public).

I like bikes and I like cats. I had briefly played with the name Psychokitty but that lacked cycling spirit. I thought of Psychocyclo but then I realized that sounded nuts and when I tried the name out to my friends it turns out none of them think I'm the least unhinged. But Cyclokitty was liked by all.

Mine is from my old days of habitual golfing. At the time there seemed to be lots of Texan-type names "Joe Don", "Billy Ray" and the like, emerging on the tour. I am a southern expatriate, so, for a swashbuckling aura, I became the long-hitting "billydon" to a select few golfing friends. Then when it came time to pick my first online username I settled on billydonn, the billydon (with one n) having already been taken. I now use this username on several email accounts and forums... it's easy to remember. My real name does not involve any "billys" or "williams" at all and only one person that I can think of still really calls me "billydon".

Several years ago I was at a family reunion where I was reunited with my biological father's family. I was named after my father, Darwin.

So, even though I am 5 or 6 inches taller, and outweigh him by 150 pounds, the family who hadn't seen me in 30 years had always wondered "What ever happened to Little Darwin" so, I was called Little Darwin several times during the reunion.

At the end there was a fun awards ceremony, and I was introduced me as Little Darwin, and then she looked at me walking up and said Darwin Junior, but I corrected the presenter, and said it was Little Darwin... So, a little family background, and a lot of irony for someone 350 pounds. I weighed a little more then.

A few years ago, I did a season of biological field work in pinyon pine - one-seed juniper woodlands in southeastern Colorado. Pinyon pine trees are usually short and small, but they live in a really dry and harsh environment for hundreds of years (we saw some 600+ years old where I worked). In the desert landscapes where pinyon trees grow, the temperature fluctuates from -20 F to 120 F almost every single year. Tough trees. I also think that pinyon-juniper woodlands smell good in the summer (hot pines, junipers, and grasses; with intermittent spicebush and skunk-bush smells).

Nature freak here. Sorry.

My name came as a result of an outing with my mom. I had just lost all my weight (which I am now doing again….10-15 years later) and was a svelte size 8. We went off to shop at Bloomingdales for clothes and found the designer sales rack. So this was back in the day – had a lot of velour back then. So we went in the dressing room and I tired on an outfit – navy blue velour pants and a top – navy blue and yellow thick stripes. Well I looked in the mirror and said Buzz Buzz (Think of the Bees in the SNL skit with John Belushi). My mom and I cracked up. So I became Miss Bumble whenever I joined a forum.

Mom plays online poker and she is Bumble’s Mom.

Also if someone has a cute Bee Smilie please send me the website so I can add it to my smilies....


PS I am really loving this thread... very fun reading.

mine started when i was young. kids would ask me if i was Chinese and others for some reason thought i was Hawaiian. so they started to call me flying Hawaiian. the last time i was called that, my friend at the time dared this kid to call me flying Hawaiian when they came to my work. as i went to go jump over the counter my other friend dragged me into the garage before i killed him(i happed to be in a very bad mood that day, hence the other nick name angry asian). that kid is now a very good friend of mine and we joke about it from time to time so it kinda changed to flying asian. and since i have always been faster, stronger, and more athletic than anybody my size it just became fastflyingasian instead of being called fastflyinghawaiian.

now a days i am not really offended by to much anymore. when i was a kid, on top of everyone else i was called every racial slur that would describe anybody of asian decent. it was just natural that being called hawaiian would feel no different than being called g--k or chi-k.

now i think its kinda halarious and have a new mascot on my MTB. its a yellow duck and it quacks when you press its stomach. it pisses my friends off when its quacking as i pass them on the climbs.

Mine name comes from the bike I ride Zipp2001. I fell in love with the bike when I read an article on beam bikes in Bicycle Guide in early 90's. I presently own 3 of them, but will be down to 2 in a couple of weeks. Sold my Zipp with 40,000+ miles to a friend who is picking it up after the holidays.

Well, my name is Ed, and the nick name was given to me by a former boss who liked to tease me about my easy going nature. He never could decide if I was relaxed, or just lazy. He started calling me "Easy Ed" and it just stuck.
