  1. I didn't put a lot of forethought into my name as I was signing up. Happened to have a beer in my hand but thought Miller high life was too long, so just stuck with "beer"

    Love Beer, belly shows that--nuff said--[​IMG]
  3. I lived down south for several years and I was told that the locals would refer to me as that "kid from the motorcity" whenever I came up in conversation. The rest is history.

    Mine is because of an addiction to the 'stinking rose'. Similar to our ideals here in New Mexico, 'A day with out Green Chile is like ..... not even worth getting out of bed for', My vice is Garlic, EVERY THING tastes better with Garlic. A little is good but alot is better.

    Mine is because of my bike, a 2001 Honda Valkyrie Interstate. Love that bike!
  6. I've used my screen name all over the internet for years and years. It goes all the way back to the Dow Jones News Service, back before it became Compuserve. It comes from the names for the characters of digital communications. The mark being the '1' and the space being the '0'. It seems to work well because most arent geeky to understand, and just call me Mark... I've never explained it before... you guys are special... haha

    I made an electric smoker out of a garbage can (worked really good that one time) because I'm extremely impulsive and wanted pulled pork. Came here looking for advice on how I had made pork jerky, and before I could learn that galvanizing inside a smoker is a bad idea I had to pick a username[​IMG].
  11. Dace being the shortened version of my last name and what I have been called since birth and what I've been hearing my whole life is this: "Hey! Dace"! So, HeyDace. [​IMG]
  12. Mine is from the Dylan song Brownsville girl. Where Dylan establish that "the only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter is that his name wasn't Henry Porter"

    On the other forums That I haunt , I use hemitrike , here I shortened it to Hemi because when I was spending my youth un-wisely I had a drag car
    with a blown hemi in it. We called it the Hemiroid. [real pain in the butt]
    Now I have a trike motorcycle with a blown injected early hemi in it.

    Mine is from almost dying on my honeymoon in New Orleans nearly 25 years ago - I had a blood vessel burst in my stomach and they did some serious surgery which has left me a long scar on the belly - the rest was easy
  15. My name is from parts of my children's names. My 4 older children are Dallas, Morgan, Logan, and Mattison. Since coming up with Dalmorloson, I have had 2 more children; Kylie, and Bailey. Maybe I should be Dalmorlosoney.

  17. Mine refers to a classic scene from Reservoir Dogs where after breakfast, a group of criminals are asked to kick in a buck each for tip. Steve Buschemi's character (Mr Pink) refuses on principal until threatened with great bodily violence. Having worked in the service industry and known many fellow service personnel for years, I try and encourage adequate tipping at all times (20% for dining, 10-15% if just drinks).

    <Below quote edited for language>
    Nice Guy Eddie: C'mon, throw in a buck!
    Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip.
    Nice Guy Eddie: You don't tip?
    Mr. Pink: Nah, I don't believe in it.
    Nice Guy Eddie: You don't believe in tipping?
    Mr. Blue: You know what these chicks make? They make s***.
    Mr. Pink: Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit.
    Nice Guy Eddie: I don't even know a f***ing Jew who'd have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip?
    Mr. Pink: I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job.
    Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice.
    Mr. Pink: She was okay. She wasn't anything special.
    Mr. Blue: What's special? Take you in the back?
    Nice Guy Eddie: I'd go over twelve percent for that.
  18. Mine is thomasyoung. Why use thomasyoung as a user name you ask? Because when I found this site and tried to register using a nick name it came back that it was already in use. I tried many different names and they all got rejected. So I tried just using my first and last name together and here we are today. Nothing glamorist or fancy, just my name. Tried to use Smoky Bear. Its ok in the end because I have my name which I honor and want to keep it in good review and under my name now has my nick name. All is Well. [​IMG]
