So Whats the Story........ - Page 2

Mine is just my name. When I came here I really didn't plan on staying, so I didn't put much thought into it.

I liked the Robert Heinlein character Lazarus Long, and also his fictional book of sayings. I began to come up with sayings of my own, and invented Lazarus Short as a literary persona before I ever got on the web. The fez came later.

Typical examples:

Ben Franklin said that honesty is the best policy. I say, yes, don't lie, but don't incriminate yourself unnecessarily either.

Any idiot can make a decision which goes to his favor. It is in the ability to make [and to keep] a decision AGAINST yourself, that true nobility of spirit is to be found.

You don't happen to go to/race for Ohio State do you? I'm racing for Northwestern this year (and incidentally am also an engineering student, EE).

My name is from a long time ago (like 5th grade or something). I played tennis a lot and ETS is my initials.

I figured on the internet, you never know who is really on the other end.
For example, you might meet someone on a dating website and think it is a beautiful 20 something yr. old woman, but it actuality could be one of your buddies messing around with you.

So I thought "arnesto" is a name of some mediteranean guy that is nothing like me.

I'm just pretending to be someone.

Some neat stories.

I came up with it in High School. Bored in grade 10 math class (math 10) I thought it was a cool name. It's very uncommon and is not normally taken or confused with other words. Can be used in a sentence; "He's a wower."

On Counter-Strike when you just start off and have no name it gives you "unknown" as your name, but that was taken so I tacked on the 123 cause I lack creativity.

I played under Gun of God in CS. I guess I needed a more bad-arse name than wower to strike fear into my opponents. Climbed to the top spot in Alberta under that handle but now I think my l33t skills have left me. Never could beat the west coasters tho, those guys must have had intravenous food drips so they didnt have to leave their keyboard and mouse. That and their sub-10 pings for like every server and they really were l33t.

It's what my family calls me. Even those without that specific relationship, and a few others have picked up on it, too.

Would you believe that eleven years ago I took the "g" and "n" out of magnavox because I was having a hard time finding a screenname for an instant messenger?

My primary hobby in middle school and high school was geology, and one of my favorite samples was a mineral called apophyllite:



You would notice though, that even though it was my favorite sample, I spelled the name wrong...
