Mine should be obvious. I love Star Trek and the Starship Enterprise. It's one of the most beutiful spaceships ever designed for a sci-fi program or movie. Yet, it makes you wonder how it would operate in a real-world scenario. Still, it is very stylish.

Mine is a nickname given to me by some coworkers because it's similar to my real last name. Now I'll have to shoot you.

I have a four letter word for you.

We could share it in a private room.

Away from prying eyes.

My screen name, 5by5, harks back to the days of analog radio communication. It’s a subjective quality scale for signal strength and signal clarity from 1 to 5.

It basically means “loud and clear.”

For more info see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_by_five

Mine was the code name given to me by the KGB after a successful career as a CIA assassin. No one is supposed to know that. Now I have to kill you too.

Well, OK, not really. It's a reference to a President we once had whose sexual life was...ah...well, never mind. Advice to new FReepers - choose your nick carefully. It might be with you for awhile. I chose...poorly... :-(

Well, I’ve been online since ‘81, under several nom de plumes, and when I signed up here, every one had been taken...

Happened to be welding brackets on my backhoe that day, and in disgust, typed that in, and son of a bitch!

It went through.

Washington’s farewell address

“All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.”

I was born and raised in Idaho - and the quirky song "Living in Your Own Private Idaho", by the B52's was popular when I was in college.

Alas, long after I chose my screen name, I learned that there is some gay movie by the same name.

Artemis Webb is a pseudonym I used for years prior to FR’s creation and my joining. Artemis come from the character of Artemus Gordon on Wild Wild West. The last name of Webb comes from Jack Webb of Dragnet fame.

“Studying his blade, Ingtar did not seem to hear. “Humankind is being swept away everywhere. Nations fail and vanish. Darkfriends are everywhere, and none of these southlanders seem to notice or care. We fight to hold the Borderlands, to keep them safe in their houses, and every year, despite all we can do, the Blight advances. And these southlanders think Trollocs are myths, and Myrddraal a gleeman’s tale.” He frowned and shook his head. “It seemed the only way. We would be destroyed for nothing, defending people who do not even know, or care. It seemed logical. Why should we be destroyed for them, when we could make our own peace? Better the Shadow, I thought, than useless oblivion, like Carallain, or Hardan, or . . . . It seemed so logical, then.”
...

Rand did not know what to say. It was as if Egwene had told him she had murdered children. Too horrible to be believed. Too horrible for anyone to admit to unless it was true. Too horrible. After a time, Ingtar spoke again, firmly. “There has to be a price, Rand. There is always a price. Perhaps I can pay it here.”

“Ingtar, I - “

“It is every man’s right, Rand, to choose when to Sheathe the Sword. Even one like me.”

Before Rand could say anything, Hurin came running down the alley. “The patrol turned aside,” he said hurriedly, “down into the town. They seem to be gathering down there. Mat and Perrin went on.” He took a quick look down the street and pulled back. “We’d better do the same, Lord Ingtar, Lord Rand. Those bug-headed Seanchan are almost here.”

“Go, Rand,” Ingtar said. He turned to face the street and did not look at Rand or Hurin again.

“Take the Horn where it belongs. I always knew the Amyrlin should have given you the charge. But all I ever wanted was to keep Shienar whole, to keep us from being swept away and forgotten.”

“I know, Ingtar.” Rand drew a deep breath. “The Light shine on you, Lord Ingtar of House Shinowa, and may you shelter in the palm of the Creator’s hand.” He touched Ingtar’s shoulder. “The last embrace of the mother welcome you home.” Hurin gasped. “Thank you,” Ingtar said softly. A tension seemed to go out of him. For the first time since the night of the Trolloc raid on Fal Dara, he stood as he had when Rand first saw him, confident and relaxed. Content.

Rand turned and found Hurin staring at him, staring at both of them. “It is time for us to go.”

“But Lord Ingtar - “

” - does what he has to,” Rand said sharply. “But we go.” Hurin nodded, and Rand trotted after him. Rand could hear the steady tread of the Seanchan’s boots, now. He did not look back.”

I am a fan of cartoons with anthro animals and my fave
animal is a raccoon (foxes too). Radio = I have been on a
college radio station north of Boston since 1981 (really!) and
am active on radio messageboards (I also do the Howie Carr
Show ping list and try to pass on any info on talk radio
to FR). I use raccoonradio on the messageboards

I picked beaversmom because the 1950’s is/was considered a good time period in an American history. In reality, whether it was or not, I don’t know—I wasn’t around then. It was after WWII and before the 60’s and it just seems like it was a good decade. More innocent. More conservative. June Cleaver is the quintessential 1950’s TV mom and represents to me that idealized time. I’m nothing like the fictional Beaver Cleaver mom in looks or personality though. My true name should be the anti-beaversmom but that might be construed as being against or opposed to the character and/or 50’s.

Liberty - freedom to act in a moral manner (to be distinguished from ‘license’ - freedom without moral restraint in the language of our forebears. A distinction lost on most modern folks.)
1970 - the year of my birth.

LOL, Laz... thanks for that... although, more technically, LA ZAMA translates to “I am able to strike, or beat”. Not sure you captured the true essence of your original intent.

All this time, you’ve been saying “I’d BEAT it!”

For the record, mine is a tribute to Stanley “Spinner” Webb, 1st Looey in the 256th Louisiana National Guard unit...

A character from the role-playing game “Twilight 2000”. yes, I’m a huge nerd.
