Not really. My favourite wrester was Eric Froelich (All Star Wresting) so I almost used 'Likely Froelich'. It just didn't roll off the toungue though.

Amazing ! That jobber Froelich !? :P

Am rather disappointed JVE ain't your real name.  I had visions of your Great-Grandfather flying a WW1 plane, chasing the Red Baron, trying to do him in.
Oh, well.  *sigh*  Another dream shattered by UM.  (lol)

Ok that made me laugh like a madman sir. :lol:

Von Erich is a little too German for a guy who was born in Quebec city. :w00t:

Well, he could have been Jonathon Von Richthofen... :whistle:

What a great name. I'm thinking about changing it now ! I'm shaking, I'm doing it ! :P

I had wondered, and I thought it was something like that!
I was a teen when the Von Erichs were at the height of their popularity. They were our local heroes- our hometown boys- and they were indeed beloved by all.
I didn't really know them, but I would see the family around, and like every other girl, I had a huge crush on Kerry.
Funny story...my best friend and I were so bold as to knock on their door (the family home) and ask if we could swim in their pool. They were so kind! and they allowed us, and after swimming, we jumped on their trampoline.
Kevin still lives near where he and his brothers were raised.

Amazing story, I'm sending you a PM right now, I need to know more. :tu:

I first discovered this site back in 2003. Came here everyday for a couple of years to read the articles, never even looked at the forums. When I decided to join in 2005 (to access the members only galleries),  the Sci-Fi channel was airing the series Farscape. Pilot (one of the characters in the show) used the term "stardrive" for his faster than light mode of travel. So as I tried different names, all of which were taken, I thought of "stardrive" and it was available. And the rest is history......

A long ago comedy team George Burns and Gracie Allen. He ended the show with "say goodnight Gracie". I just changed the spelling.

The 'cleverest' aka of all time IMO, was the one used by H. Vernon Watson, an English variety artist - known throughout the 20's and 30's as NOSMO KING.

Its a good one, taken from a 'No Smoking' sign.

As youngster I remember being told this was because he couldn't read to well, is there any truth to this?

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

While I'm here I better add the reason for my 'handle'...

My fathers nickname is Chubby (or Chubb), this in turn lead me to come up with Junior Chubb when out 'tagging' as a youngster, it has stuck from then really...

An old wit. As in, "Wit is a form of intellectual humor, and is the ability to say or write things that are clever and usually funny."

Posted 17 July 2012 - 03:27 PM

Mine is a playon word on a british DJ called Annie Mac,so I changed Mac to Smack for humorous reasons because she is rather crazy,and Ali because at the time I thought she was called Ali.
And I have a picture of Katy Perry as my Avatar because it's a funny picture,which I find amusing.
It is probably good i've kept the name Ali as I am male,so would probably sound silly if I called myself Annie

Mine was originally a name I made up for D&D eons ago for kind of a swashbuckling kind of character. Now it's the surname of my privateer character garb when I go to faire.
