    When I was 12 my brother gave me a press to imprint my name on the golf balls we used so we could tell which was his and which were mine. Needless to say, the intial result wasn't what I intended, but I've used it ever since when I didn't want to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

    You'd be nothing without that dash.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I kinda look like 'the brain' from "pinky and the brain"... from the popular cartoon 'animaniacs'. my head is twice the size of my body. I am going to take over the world as soon as I learn c++ (this might take awhile) right now I am just having problems finding someone to run Canada for me.

    This screen name identity and what it posts is a fuzzy duplicate of me in real life.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    I was Devastator in Duke Nukem 3D, then since everyone else had the same name I figured Hunter would be cool.. but since everyone also had that, I figured I would be unique and choose the number 2 as my FIRST CHOICE, so I'm Hunter2. Since people without imagination keep choosing that when they can't get Hunter though, I'm also seen as HunterGuy2 and HunterGuy_2 and all variants thereof.

    Hi,
    my name is N. Voigt and I'm totally unimaginative when it comes to picking nicknames

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
