Origins of your username?

Just curious to see how you all came up with your illustrious usernames.

I am a huge fan of literature, and Moby Dick was one of the first "classics" that I really sunk my teeth into. Thus, CaptainAhab.

How about you?

(Sorry if there has been a thread about this already).

It was when I first go the orange box. Downloaded steam and had to think of a user name. FDA Approved is the first thing that came to mind and it just seemed right ever since.

I started of as Gohan, (I was 12 stfu), after a few years I joined SMR and one of the rules of me joining was a new name, they dubbed me Ricey, it's stuck since.

Over the years of FF, I have been called ricecake, ryesie, rice, ricer, jew rice, etc.

kubedog was my first online handle. It was my uncle's nickname in TFC. I used to do yard work for him and he let me play TFC on his (what was then a badass PC). I didn't know how to change it at the time and by the time I knew how to change it, it had already stuck. I of course made some modifications, KubeDawg, but I eventually dropped the name altogether and really only keep it these days so people know who the fuck I am.

Now, I go by HelloMoto, an ode to my first cell phone back in the day, but since some sites already have users signed up as hellomoto, I go by FPSMoto now out of convenience. Probably just going to drop the first part of it and go by Moto, which is what most people call me anyway or Kube.

If you were going for a fantasy name, Gohan isn't bad at all.

I figured you just loved rice as much as I did.

Especially with Tabasco sauce.

Wow, great story! I was imaging you had a passion for motorbikes. Never would have guessed Motorola.

Gohan is a lot better than this name, that's for fucking sure.

My origin? Not really hard to figure out. I based it off a character off a shitty comedy central show. I never had the natural skill for aiming back then so I died a lot in TFC.

I therefore decided to name myself Kenny, but as time passed this name made me look even more of an idiot than I made myself to be, it's so simple. It pissed me off because it has a southpark vibe. People mentioning that specific over-done southpark line really got me irritated.

It really hurts, please. The name brings a lot of bad memories, call me Everything. if the time ever comes, thanks.

The everything and nothing steam names fad I made with my friend seems to be less annoying than this name, that's for sure. But bare with me, it can be annoying when you're playing and you get people to change their name to something. Haha but no.

I'm sorry that you do not like your name. The story behind it makes sense though. Do you not like South Park anymore? I was personally never a big fan of the show.

It is pretty simple........

The Yellow Brotherhood prophecy was written thousands of year ago and within the arrival of the people of light there needed to be a voice. I am that voice. I was created per page 3492 section 4 as Darken_Hellspawn the one who would bring the word of light to all that would hear me. Within that comes an unbreakable bond to the light which in all its glory tends me to close my eyes againts it for its true power and glory is too much for all. Thus Darken........... "I close my eyes to relish within the warmth of the light".

The Yellow Brotherhood..............Brethren to the light.........

Dear Bully and all,

I haven't went anywhere. I still frequent the forums on a daily basis gazing at the content it provides. Now do I log in underneath dh most of the time? The answer would be "no". I browse without authentication because the account dh within itself has one of the most important jobs that this forum and the world has ever seen. It should be used in small amounts such as absinthe. Why drink the entire bottle of darken when every drip of content that it provides is so life changing within itself. Will the bottle ever run out you may ask? The answer is "no". Should it sometimes be used sparingly because the average mid cannot consume its entirety? The answer is "yes".

Drink what I have provided so far and thank CaptainAhab for this and the upcoming glass fulls that I will bring.
