RE: How did you choose/invent your user name?
Mine's a play on the phrases, "It's not brain surgery!" and "It's not rocket science!"

Also, since I work on and customize a type of performance motorcycle, performing "surgery" on "crotch rockets" (as some call fast motorcycles), I took this on as my business appellation.

It seemed to suit for an online nickname, as well.

Edit: Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is a phenomenon, I also like that I am called by the same name as my favorite character, Rocket. Smile

Mine is probably pretty easy to figure out.

And I mean the video game series, not the movies.

I have a dash of Norwegian in me. I can almost read that. At least the last part- "We are neighbors".

Pft. Any English speaker can guess that part. That's cheating! Big Grin

Have you been to Norway? It's mindblowing! Mountains and fjords and shit! And reindeer on the roads! (boyfriend and I go to arctic Norway at least once per year. Got friends with cabin there. Big fans!)

RE: How did you choose/invent your user name?
Years ago there was a record called "An evening wasted with Tom Lear" one of the selections had as the main character (in fact the only character), a doctor who's specialty was the diseases of the very rich who's name was Hen3ry and as he explained it the 3 was silent.

Well since Robert is a popular name on many forums I decided to try Ro3bert and it worked so I use it almost exclusively for any time I need a user name (unless i am forced to use my email address).

Today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be even better.

I thought at one point in my life that I would study linguistics, because I like languages and their history. I have studied Spanish (I live in California, seemed appropriate) and French, but I picked Physics for a major because it was even more interesting. And I could be sure to get a job with it. It's been 34 years since I graduated university, and I never got back to linguistics. I'd visit Norway in the fair weather; I'm sure it's beautiful. I've lived through 2 winters in Idaho, with way subzero weather. I'll pass on that, thank you very much, so living in Norway is out of the question.

RE: How did you choose/invent your user name?
I copied. Blush Someone on another forum I used to frequent used a similar idea with a different word.

I make a new name for each forum I join. I was trying to come up with something generic that didn't actually pertain to any personal interests (I'd shoved them in where they didn't belong before, was embarrassed, and was paranoid about doing that again for a while) and was coming up blank, so I just went with something I'd seen before but tweaked.

I'm not a fan of it. I think of myself as just "CU" (or "Clever", but that'd be really egotistical if it wasn't an abbreviation).

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

I once knew a guy who would use the username "Unarmed Civilian" So when in a game you killed him "YOU KILLED UNARMED CIVILIAN" and when he killed you it would say "YOU WERE KILLED BY UNARMED CIVILIAN"

He was a fun guy, we went to Anime Expo together once.

It's an old username I have used since the early 00's and late 90s. It is my favorite Mech from the Zoids Anime.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.
