Ok, yes I am bored. Was looking at various threads and wonder how and why Freepers come up with their sign ons.

For example. I am MnJohnnie. I live in Minnesota and, for some reason, everyone calls me Johnnie instead of John. So when confronted with having to come up with a signon, I went with the 1st thing that popped into my mind.

So why did you pick your sign on? What does it mean?

I signed up in January 2001 after lurking for a couple years. I was so happy that W finally was named the winner over Algore. I see no need to change it.

It an acronym for a business a had at one time. Busse Computer Services Company; BCSCO. It became so familiar to me, I used it as my username. Nothing more complicated than that...

Larry, I have always wondered how you came up with your sign on name.

There are some Freepers I would love to see respond to this. For me it was 1999 and even though we were suffering under Clinton I still had hope. It’s worse now but my name still fits.

I’m a contradiction....like Marcel Marceau in “Silent Movie.” His speaking - the only line in that movie - was a stroke of genius.

“Snake Doctor” is the operational callsign of Jonas Blaine, the leader of a Delta Force/ Black Ops military team on the cancelled television series “The Unit”.

I chose it because it sounded good, as a non-obvious tribute to unsung heroes — and because Jack Bauer doesn’t have a callsign.

Several people said I was the ‘posterchild’ for the environmental movement because I lived in a city without a car for several years. (It was not because of ‘environmental’ concerns though) Now that I live in the suburbs I have a reel type lawn mower and my neighbors probably think I’m similarly an econut.

Mine refers to an old Japanese legend about 47 Ronin who chose to be perceived as dissolute and dishonored in order to fulfill a debt of honor and revenge to their master. Great story of integrity. see it here: http://www.samurai-archives.com/ronin.html

Safrguns is the southern slang pronunciation of "Safer Guns".

It's a dig against the "Safe Sex" crowd and movement instigated and promoted by the Condom Queen Joycelyn Elders (Clinton Administration Surgeon General) who in a speech once called for "Safer Guns and Safer Bullets".

It's Aramaic.

I don't think he ever said "La Zama Taz" ("I'd hit it") though.....
