I hope everyone has fun with this thread. It's 2:22 am local time and I have to nap. Sometimes it sucks living on the west coast. We go to bed when everyone else is either waking up or wide awake.

PS: The flip side is, is that we get to stay up late!

Lone Wolf is my personality type - which indicates that such a person may be associated with a group or a community but is more comfortable working alone (and sometimes rebelling against the authorities to follow his/her own principles). I was born in '85, and also the 'd' is silent as in Django!

I have been using this nick since I was in college, my friends used to joke saying I liked using lone-wolf tactics since I used to avoid them and do stuff alone. Somehow that nick stuck with me, and today, even official emails are forwarded to either my gmail or yahoo accounts by the same id. I also use the same avatar in every account (I am so not creative) and my card says "dWolf" on the back (yes, I am weird)... LOL.

Airbrushing is an art unto it's own. A friend of mine, a long time ago, had an airbrush. His use of friskets was amazing. Sometimes it was just his hand.

It is indeed. Your old friend sounds like they;re from the early periods. Frisket is a name you dont hear much these days :)
Your own hand can be used almost exstensivly as a shield with practice. Modern airbrushes have evolved greatly too. What we can do these days will amaze many peeps.

The Dwarf is because being short and bearded it was an obvious nickname. My work mates called me the 8th Dwarf.

The Waspie came about because I used to post on a lot of Rugby Union forums and that let people know that I was a London Wasps supporter.

Libby is my name.  One of the guys I worked with always called me Libsta and it stuck with some folk, another girl named Debbie copped Debsta - I still call all Debbies Debsta lol.  The K is just the initial of my surname.

It's the first random "name" that came to my mind. FLOMBIE has no meaning whatsoever, but I am FLOMBIE, and you'll get flombied, too! :w00t:

I think I have decided that i may change my name very soon, so watch out! :blush:

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

I just liked the sound of it and the look of it ....... nothing more, nothing less :)

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

my grandfather gave me the nickname lotus when i was really little, i would have been just Lotus here but someone has that name so i had to figure out something to put infront of it dunno why i picked iron but i did and here iam :D

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish... Soldiers don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder... Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts.  You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts.

My grandpa called me his "Wee El Dorado".  Cos I was his first grandson with fair hair.  :)

p.s. Forgot to add, it's also the name of a locally made alcoholic beverage so am rather suspicious.

As a child, I could never work out why I was Russian and my parents, English. Then when I was 12 it was pointed out to me that my name wasn't 'O.Sodoff!'

"Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnáwan þín gefá!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

A simple "like" is not sufficient for that one, Eald so....
