I used to ice skate (both hockey and figure). I have always liked the term. I prefer to use <SKATER] and \SKATER/. kinda looks like a figure skate blade and a hockey skate blade, respectively

Well my name was something I actually came up with when I first started playing around on the internet. I used to go into a virtual chat program called Excite VP. I used a few other names that never fit me just right. I searched a long time through names and finally came up with this one from greek mythology.

Talos
Talos was a bronze giant made by Hephaestos. His duty was to protect Europa who gave birth to Minos after being seduced by Zeus. He threw boulders to frighten strangers who approached the island of Crete. He was killed when Medea removed the pin that held the life force in his body.

I have used this name for just about everything from that day on. I even created 2 characters in everquest using this name back in my addiction days. but thats how it came about.

Well, mine has nothing special, I took it from my name Luis Abrego and I'm kind of stuck in it, I think if I took another I will forget it :lol:

My friends always call me Larz (like Metallica's drummer) (I was a drummer in my youth) and that's why I always sign like that.

My screen name kinda came about funny. When StarCraft first came out, I had the sn Reifleman. After that, I went on vacation for about three weeks. When I got back, I had gone over to my friends house, and we were playing SC on his comp. When I tried to log into it with my old sn, I couldnt remmember the correct password. My friend just happened to have a sn, Smokenjoe, that he used to start fights with people when he was bored on B.net(he was wierd). He let me use that one. After a while, the name just kinda stuck, so I changed the password so that he couldnt log on with it anymore. Ive used it ever since! Its funny because my name isnt Joe, and I dont smoke. :lol:

I got my name cuz of my girlfriend. Her initials are J.N. (Jerica Nonell) and she took this little mini quiz thing off of her friend Deadjournal and it said she deserved a bed of roses and it was just a coincident (Sp?) that my name is Rose as well so all of our friends refer to me as her bed of roses hence the name JNsBedORoses. :lol:

Well I used to have names like PixxieTini and Martini (nicknams given by my best friend). Later on I started using xHolyDarkness as my handle for everything... Holy Darkness is a song that we do in my church (I'm in the choir) and I'm in love with that song...

For this forum the reason for Liquescence was pathetic... I wanted something cool to name my web hosting, so I spent a day going through the dictionary picking out random words... and I ended up with this...

One day back in high school physics class we were talking about prisms. For some reason when I needed a new handle, I chose that because it sounded cool and I don't remember seeing a lot of people use it. The "PrISM" just looks better than "prism" or "Prism" in my opinion.

"SinisterDexter" has been with me for almost five years now, and gone through many, many, MANY minor changes, but I eventually just reverted to this. As for it's origin, one of my friends found out that "Sinister" meant left, and "Dexter" meant right[or is it the other way around?], and when you have left and right you have balance, and I'm fairly "unbalanced", so..........I didn't come up with it, so don't look at me like that! But it stuck, so I kept it.

Well, as you can see it's very easy to figure out my handle for this forum!
first initial and last name.

My handle for everything else is GR84Deaths.

I am a gamer at heart! UT, doom, Quake, & AA. Mainly 1st Person Shooters. My friends always told me i am great at classic deaths. So, I made GR84Deaths.

Nickname from bicycle-racing... apparently my style of riding mirrors that of Mario Cipollini (a.k.a. The Lion King). He won (over the years) tons of stages at the Tour de France in sprints, and for each stage win the winning rider gets a toy Lion wearing a yellow jersey... amongst other things like a bouquet flowers and being pictured with half-n@ked French ladies.

Gee... I'm glad they didn't call me Bouquet !

Just Undone Pleasantries In The Echo Room.

The Echo room was where they would send feisty kids at school so they could shout as loud as they wanted. A frequent hang out of mine :evil:

I went to a school that had 6-9th grade, there was one 9th grade class with about a dozen kids in it, one period a day that class was split up & each student was assigned as a teachers assistant. 8th grade year I was in "the room" so often they had no problem with making me the teachers assistant there for 9th grade. :oops:

Now that I think back on that I can't believe I actually recieved Highschool credit for being in "the room" :lol:

This213: I used to refer to myself as "This" all the time, refering to my physical self in the OOP style of $this (which is why I usually sign "This" if I sign a post at all). The meaning behind that is that I believe I'm much more than just "This" and this is nothing more than just "This". The 213 is to show that "This" isn't quite in the right order and still has to run through a sort or two.

YZIX: I used to use yzxix as a sn long ago. I was dumping the sn I had used since either before or just after AOL was internet-capable, (semitekie) because I figured I was full-on tekie, but I couldn't think of a decent replacement. yzxix was more what I was thinking when I gave up on the search than an actual name - like a sudden burst of electricity. YZIX came about because it's actually pronouncable (somewhat), and the domain name was available (and only 4 letters long)

I think that about sums up This
