I'm not sure if anyone else did this as a kid but I always thought about what custom license plate I wanted so I came up with my username (7 characters). At the time I was in track/cross country so it's supposed to be SpeedyAriel (Ariel pronounced R-E-L). Kind of embarrassing but it stuck and it's what I use pretty much everywhere!

Smithers is a very obscure reference to a bit in a Ricky Gervais XFM radio show episode. That was before Ricky, Steve, and Karl got famous...I'm a huge fan and listen to the old episodes all the time.

Mine is a reference to the region I came from.  

@Smithers - I've listened to those shows to death and can't for the life of me think about which bit you are referring to!  Care to elaborate?

Wow my name is just made up when i played Warrock
back in that days it was all for me to think: if you are called "132133123" or something, you dont want to be number one in the worldwide highscore list(i was like 7years old) you want to be seen with a good name.
thats why i first had: Blacknano, but in Warrock some guy allready used it so i came up with Drat0n.
it really doesn't has a real meaning.

The game was awesome tho (but cant be ported).
Some people just need a high five.......In the face.......with a chair

FarmerGeddon comes from two things that are kinda significant to me, in indirect ways, and a great juxtaposition - farming and armageddon!

i got a kinda unique nick but not in this forum. first i signed up just to have a look and most of the time then i don't use my real nickname.

btw @admins: is there a way to change the nickname?

anti matter a quantum physics concept? i thought it comes from the regular physics because they even can't explain what matter is. and because of dualism there has to be anti matter if there is matter :-D

do quantum theories not describe something else? like that everything is everywhere and not restricted to space and time? or that matter in the traditional comprehension doesn't exist and everything is based on a wave and a particle base?

Haskpody means … nothing, nothing at all as far as I'm aware. It is merely an attempt at being undesirable enough to be unique across the Interwebs, and is so far serving that purpose adequately.

With time, I find it has taken on a somewhat unpleasant sound to it in my ears. Not quite unpleasant enough to warrant the painful process of coming up with something else, however.
