    ok, well i've been posting here for nearly 6 months and lurking for about 8 and i've not seen any threads like it. Besides, there have been loads of new members in my time alone who haven't had the chance to explain themselves. lets just see what happens, if not then wasteland it.

    My dog was practically ripping the curtains off barking at some cat or something out of the window. I shouted 'shut up you stupid barkmonster'. I thought it was a cool (yet stupid) name to call myself.

    I'm a triathlete and attended a winter training which was "spinning". That is riding on a stupid bike trainer inside with one very heavy flying wheel. I didn't like the concept so I started running it backwards to make it some more fun, hence back-spinner.

    Laslo Panaflex

    My name is a reference to my favorite Simpsons episode of all time "A fish called Selma". It's the episode that Troy McClure marries Selma to regain his stardom, the one with the planet of the apes musical. There is a scene in this episode where Troy is getting his star on the walk of fame, and well see the episode and my signature.

    P.S. I know that its spelled Laszlo, but I made a mistake and just continue to use Laslo in everything to keep it consistent. Big points for anyone who knows who Laszlo Panaflex is (was).

    the animal that i like the most is jaguar. (other favs are leopard and black panther). giaguara is (female) jaguar in italian. i wanted a jaguar-something dot mac name, before 10.2 was out obviously... jaguar was gone, so i tried some others and it was free. so after it kind of stuck to me, and in most boards i use the same nick. i won't change me to pantera once 10.3 comes out, as jaguar is still my favorite animal.

    and besides - if i would still have been using windows or linux on pc or whatever when 10.2 came out, i would have wanted it simply because it was jaguar and i like those felines so damn lot. (pity the closest zoo to here has just leopards). that would probably have been the funniest reason to switch to mac if i would have got the mac that late. :D

    To quote myself in this thread
    "To simpsons fan mine is obvious, but to everyone else the simpson family was playing scrablle and bart had a W,j,y,i,o,b,k. which all seem like impossibl to wrk together. So Bart laid down Kwyjibo.

    K-W-Y-J-I-B-O... Kwyjibo.22 points... plus 50 points for using all my letters! Game's over, I'm outta here...

    Wait a minute, you little cheater -- you're not going anywhere until you tell me what a Kwyjibo is!

    Kwyjibo? Uh... a big, dumb, balding,
    North American ape with no chin...

    And a short temper!

    Why you little!! (chases Bart)

    Uh oh, Kwyjibo on the loose!"

    Mine should be easy. My last name's Walker, and since I love Star Wars anyways, this just came naturally.

  19. macrumors 6502a


    I spent a while thinking of an awesome name for Diablo 2, and I came up with Vlade (pronouced like Blade but with a V instead of a B). I thought it was awesome, and it was 100% original. Then I found out that Vladd and Vlade were russian names, and people confused my name with the russian name! It made me so mad, and it proves that no thought is 100% original, one of those other 6 billion people thought of it first~!

  21. macrumors regular

    well, i had been a reader of this forum for a few months, and there was a thread started about a Macwhispers rumor.

    (remember the small chunk of plastic with a hole cut in it?)

    Anyway, within a half page of posts this chunk of plastic was billed as the iPod/PDA/Phone/Tablet/BackScratcher.

    At this point I had had it, and I flamed. I created a name, and logged in, and that was that.

    So I still dont post much, I prefer to sift through and pick out the details. But I can be brought out of my hole from time to time.
