    Name Stories

    So we got some pretty interesting usernames around here - anyone care to share the stories behind their usernames? I think mine is pretty self explanatory, but I've been wandering about govtcheez for a loong time (you too, quzah).

    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.

    Govtcheez's name originates from the "Government Cheese" they used to serve in the cafeteria when he was a patient at Byberry Mental Hospital. It was his one true love, but the full name of the epic cheese was too long to fit into the username box on the original boards so he shortened it to govtcheez.

    I was a quad racer all my life and i didnt intend to be here long. I had just got done riding and needed help with an overdue programming assignment. I thought ut the username Ride -or- die in a hurry and when i decided to stay i got it changed to RoD.

    It doesnt have any real meaning. I forget who told me it stood for "Rides only Dudes", but im pretty sure it was "bobdole" over there LOL. For the record, it doesnt stand for that.

    only THE greatest guitar player to have ever played. He currently has ALS (or Lou Gehrig's disease) and cant move a muscle in his body. As his body was being taken over by this disease he recorded/composed one last amazing album.... Perspective.
