    My username can be taken two ways. The corect way is "macbook + airman" So...its not macbookair + man, but macbook + airman.

    Did that makes sense lol? :D

    I have a very big interest in flight and aviation.

    I've got an old Fujifilm Instax camera which I love. It caught my eye while I was thinking up a name + I'm a girl.

    ...why either of these had anything to do with it, I don't know. I think I had the song going when I joined, and of course one's brain goes dead when one is trying to come up with usernames. :rolleyes:

    My science teacher from last year had a really interesting sense of humor so he called himself this whenever he would give us tests because he was giving us the opportunity to improve our grades. I know it sounds kind of weird, but he was my favorite science teacher so I just decided to make it my SN.


    '94 is my birth year. :)

    Short for Uncle Fungus, from Ice Age. My niece and nephews, with help from my sister, coined it when they realized that I am very sloth-like. The older ones have started using my actual name, but my 38 year old sis still calls me Fungus. The younger ones call my wife A(u)nti-Fungus... opposites attract, you know.

    It's the first three letters of my first name, my middle initial, and my last name. The handle I more commonly go by on almost everything else is anexanhume, which I made up after watching the first Mummy movie :p

    My handle is Boneoh, pronounced bow knee oh. Back in the summer of 76, my buddy had just turned 18. We took him to the local bar, and we all proceeded to get drunk. One of the favorite high school teachers was Mr. Bonilla, everybody really loved him.

    Since we had just graduated, we were all drunk and telling stories about our past high school experiences. So when someone mentioned Bonilla, and people all around started yelling his name. Before drinking a shot, people would yell Bonilla. After a while noone could say it correctly, and it became BONEOH!

    After that crazy night, it became kind of a greeting for a while. Before you know it, I got saddled with the nickname. It's strange... a long story to explain all of this and there is no real meaning to it except that everyone was plastered! :p
