FReeper names explained
My curiousity | Now | Yours truly

Posted on 01/18/2002 5:03:35 PM PST by Come get it

Some FReepers have nicks that are obvious in their origin, others don't. I've seen several that probably have interesting stories behind them.

I thought it would be cool to see where FReepers get their handles from. If you don't like this topic, DON'T POST HERE! No one forces you to read this. I'm sure other people may be interested. If I'm the only one, let me know so I can crawl away in shame.

I also chose this name because I felt that Amazing_Super_Stud_Single_Dad, or All_the_Women_Want_Me, while true, might seem a little ostentatious.

I am a Tribes admin for HomeLan Federation. I used to have a girlfriend I called "Bunny" and one day she got fiesty and I teasingly called her "Psycho Bunny"...that night I logged onto Tribes, picked a female skin and change my nick from "Darth Weasel" to "Psycho Bunny".

I turned to her and said "Look! It's you being all freaky and killing people." After she slapped me around about it I stuck with the nick. lol....I'm a 'Tribesvetite' : I play as a woman even though I'm a guy.

Boomer huh? Wild and crazy guys, the ones I knew. Boomer in the dorm across from mine toasted waterbugs (cockroaches) with a lighter and a can of Pledge. One ran out of his room, tail end still burning, and into the next guy's dorm. I'd NEVER heard a guy scream like that...

I lurked here for a while back in early 2000, then registered for a while using my first name (Brad).
One day I wanted to change it to something catchy but couldn't think of anything good.
While I was surfing the Web that day I found a website called "What's My Pirate Name?"
So I answered a few question and out pops Bloody Sam Roberts. That's it. No romance. Just serendipity! Aaarrrhh!

Mine came from an old Freak Brothers comic, the name of a redneck who tried to beat up Freewheelin' Franklin once. I just liked the name and decided to use it.

Long story...........

I don't like my screen name but I've gotten used to it. After being urged to check out Free Republic by my freeper brother, Northpaw, I visited the website. I had no intention of anything but lurking at first. Within a few minutes I realized that I wanted to post a reply to something.

I had given no thought to a screen name but needed one to register. I thought, "I'm south of my brother, Northpaw, and I'm sis." Thus came the name that I immediately regretted. But that's life. After nearly two years I live with it.

It was a Sunday when I joined FR. I was running late before going to church, so I just put the first and middle initials of my name, between the political philosophy I believe. It had nothing to do with the Harry Browne Party. The ones I am waiting for is Kneel Before Zod, Archie Bunker on Steroids and Crouching Intern Hidden Sofa.

I was involved with skydiving and shooting at the time of the CB craze so I used Shooter or Chuter. It didn't matter which one since I was speaking it and not writing it down. After I was released from the hospital I stopped skydiving and continued shooting. I tried to use Shooter and then Shooter1 and then Shooter2 with no success when I joined a shooting message board. I noticed a computer game sitting on my desk that happened to be version 2.5. I've used Shooter 2.5 on something like 5 message boards. Someone on this board actually accused me of not shooting at all so I posted the picture on my profiles page. I think it says it all.

that's good 2 hear.

property rights are fundamental to the u.s. constitution.

property rights are really under attack at the moment.

know anything about the so-called "smart growth", that supposedly protects farms, but actually takes control away from farmers?

"Tex" is for Texas, "Tide" is for Alabama (The second half of THE university's battle cry).

It basically amounts to a description of the migratory habits of an unladen bama boy.

Bunker didn't choose Archie Bunker, the title was bestowed on me. My wife and her friend love to oooh and ahhhh over the Grammys every year. Needless to say, the show nauseates me to no end. When the show is on, me and a friend will typically go in the garage, drink beer and scratch our eggs. A couple of years ago I decided to torment them and have my own running commentary during the show. I abused every liberal carbon based life form who made an appearance on the show. My friend's wife finally exploded on me and said. YOU'RE AN ARCHIE BUNKER - NO YOU'RE WORSE THAN ARCHIE BUNKER, YOU'RE AN ARCHIE BUNKER ON STEROIDS.

I assure you meatheads that the title is appropriate.
