I always like starting this thread on whatever board I join. It's just interesting to get to know some of the other board members and how they chose their handle, not to mention what their handle means.

Okay, I'll start.

I logged onto Goonsnet to post a couple of specific threads that I couldn't hold in anymore back in July of 2003.

I wanted to register as quickly as possible because I was using my computer at work and didn't want the boss to catch me.

Anyway, I wanted to log on as "Mothman" from The Mothman Prophecies but that handle had already been taken. Wanting to hurry up and register, I thought I could change my handle later (it was my first registration as a newbie internet user), so I picked the first thing that came into my head.

It was two nicknames that I had for a couple of cats my parents owned back in the 1980's. I thought this one Siamese cat looked kind of like the little grey alien that is my avatar, so I nicknamed him "Zoid". The other was his mate, and she got the nickname "Zodian". I just combined them into my handle thinking I could change it later.

And the rest is history. After registering on Goonsnet as Zoid Zodian, I actually posted my first thread on the K-VAR forum as just "Zoid", but during their website upgrade my identity and threads were deleted, so I re-registered as Zoid Zodian. I'm Zoid Zodian on every forum I've registered for, now. Sometimes I feel more like Zoid Zodian than I do my real name.

Mine is pretty obvious, I love scuba diving. I use Twincam88 form time to time, again obvious, I love Harleys. Can't figure out why I have not incorporated my wife's name some how. (Might explain things, hummm) Jack

Mine is just a senseless collection of numbers and letters selected at random :)

Actually, I'm 54R's little brother.

In another life away from reality :) I do living history demonstrations. Myself and my possums potray and give homage to Thomas J. Jackson's, Stonewall Brigade.

History buffs will know it was his troops, in the defense of the Sheanandoah Vally, that were everywhere all the time. Making the Union commanders believe there were 3-4x's as many troops as there actually were.

The unit I potray, 2nd VA, was known (and documented) to have marched 36 mi in 14 hours in a pouring rain with few stragglers. Hence...

Rebel...Foot...Calvalry.

I like the word verbatim and it isn't widely used so it seemed like a good one. My original name on internet forums is Sulaco but some a**holes kept messing with me on another board and followed me to another one so I changed accounts to let everything cool down. I have been typing useless crap on web forums for years as Sulaco. :salute:

Nice avatar phil. :bangin: . I take it that thats the front end of that slr.
Anyway, my handle originates from the Spiderman comics since I used to sell them years ago and Spiderman was the most popular. C_Kassidy= Cletus Kassidy: a psychotic murdering madman that unites with an alien symbiote to become carnage, an even crazier psychotic murderer

Man, I remember when that very first issue came out. It was probably the early 90's right? I still remember cletus in jail, then going right through those bars...then that giant blade carnage's hand turned into. Pretty cool stuff...like venom kicked up 20 notches...

Damn, I wish I still had mine! I kinda left the scene around that time. That was also when Image and a few others started coming out with their stuff (Youngblood, Harbinger, etc).

The sad thing is that I still have the comic that he first appeared in. :w00t1:

I got mine while in the U.S. ARMY. I was a 63B/H8 . Mechanic & recovery specialist= 5 ton recovery vehicle. While in formation one dat at 17:30 our 1st Sgt says to my platoon, yall look like a bunch of damn Dogs. All dirty and mangy looking. It clicked, and our Platoon leader started to report during formation that the WarDawg's was present and accounted for . Now you know the story of the ole WarDawg..... :rockin:
