    when i registered for my first forum, big green egg, i used 'bill' as my handle ,, cause i was born on the first of the month,, dad told me that is why they named me bill. the next morning there was a post directly above mine posted by BILL ,, it contained a link to real p0rn.. so to distinguish myself from the pornogropher i became 'lowercasebill'

    My name is Steven. My Xbox Live gamertag is stevenStefano because I wanted something relatively like my name but not the usual crap like "Myth1ca7Kill3RL0rd666" Funny when I play games how simple my name looks which is pretty much what I wanted

    When I first entered the world of the internet, I had to come up with a user name that was different. At that time I was selling for a national power tool manufacturer and I wanted to use ToolTime but I was afraid it I did I might run into trouble down the line since Tim Allen was so popular with his TV show. So I came up with TME4TLS, time for tools, as my user name and I have kept it ever since. Even my license tag has TME4TLS on it as a personalization.

    However, when I started my business years ago, it seemed to be confusing to use TME4TLS for my user name so I use The BoardSMITH just about everywhere on the forums. I was on AOL and after I got off someone started using TME4TLS there and may still be to this day. I did try to go back to AOL once but had to lengthen the name to OriginalTME4TLS but dropped that when I finally left AOL for good.

    I collect vintage road bicycles. Since they are increasingly hard to find...I have to hunt for them.

    My name is Jarrod and I push Cadillacs like woah. <-- sorry about that. Last ride was a last-gen 07 CTS, and current ride is an '09 CTS.

    I look to continue this tradition going forward with the upcoming ATS, but there is an issue: I'm 29 and been with my girlfriend for +5 years--so financially I have a ring, wedding, house, etc. in the near horizon to worry about....so this is probably my last one for a while.

    Great thread idea Sir Drinks-a-lot

    Nice! When I was working at a bike shop my coworker had a fuso that he commuted half way across l.a. on daily. Unfortunately it was stolen in downtown one morning, surely by someone who had no clue what they just stole.

    My name is my attempt at Japanese slang. I was big in to the drift scene since 2000 when it hadn't really blown up yet. My best friend and I used to rent drift videos from little Tokyo in downtown (option and drift tengoku). Anyway, from the vids the dude who brought drifting to competitive racing in Japans name is Keich Tsuchiya otherwise known as Dori-Kin (drift king). I took kin and placed tamanegi (onion according to Google translator) in front of it. It is supposed to mean onion king. My coworkers started calling me this in Spanish after I had to haul ass through a sack of onions for pico during service. Anyway, its my attempt at combing two obsessions of mine, past and present LOL. Light hearted and not to be taken seriously

    Mine is from my favorite episode of my favorite show...Futurama.

    Less than Hero, season 4 episode 5.

    the day that show aired i changed my handle on counterstrike to this and it has been my handle from forums to video games and everything in between ever since.
    It's like my ol' grandpappy used to say; "The less one makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look a fool in retrospect"
