    I came up with mine years and years ago for a screen name for my favorite band's forum The Gufs

    Then when I started looking around for Packer forums, it just seemed natural to use it there too

    I have used gbfan1967 for some forums, but dont go there anymore

    Mine is a long time (no pun intended) name that I've been using for AIM and really any other site where I needed a username. Incubus was one of my favorite bands growing up, and I didn't know how to spell it when I created the name. The number was my number playing soccer when I grew up. It's just coincidence it ended up being a certain someones number.

    EDIT: Cool thread LTF

    "Kitten" is my longtime nickname, ;) (pun intended)! I love cats so people just started calling me Kitten. I'm Kitten on a number of other forums but on the Vampire Forums I'm "Kitten Nocturne".

    Not much is to be explained by mine. I made this account after his first year starting. I saw that year what he could be and what he is today.

    Awww, you dog! I always thought that may have been the case, but decided against it. Incubus is my fav.! I go see em whenever they're in Chicago. I got to meet Brandon Boyd once...Killer!

    I could tell you, but then I would have to pitchfork you.


    Amish Mafia is my Fantasy football name for many years, I just thought it was funny.

    LOL!! I was wondering what alot of them meant... Murgen please 'splain!

    Amishmafia,...so freakin funny! When I finally read your avatar correctly, I couldn't stop laughing!
    Wondering why the amish was advocating not drinking and driving... HILARIOUS!

    I love it!

    Mine is self explanatory,...very difficult to pick a name that hasn't already been used. Most realize I mean the team not the city in mine! :spiteful:

    Got mine from a simple, classy man... probably one of the most elite corner backs when in his prime. He had a streak going of shutting down the opponents #1 receiver, i think it was like 12 games or something like that, where he held them without a catch. He was the master of the bump-and-run, and was part of the elite tandem opposite Charles Woodson. He played a little "dirty" sometimes, so the opponents receivers dubbed him the nickname "dirty1", a play off his number "31". He relished the nickname and made it his own (or his fans did) and he started being referred to as "3irty1". Oh, his name you ask? the one and only Al Harris!!!!! :p

    I picked mine off to the top fighter aircraft every built. The F-22 Raptor. I use the same name at every football forum I am signed up on. I had used my real name on one forum and it caused problems. Won't make that mistake again.

    This is the same S/N I used for EVERYTHING. Been using it since I joined my first forum back in 2004. At the time I had just bought a 98 Red Trans Am... hence 98Redbird.

    I always thought it was a play on "Our Us."
    Like "Toys RS."

    Thanx for the explanation.

    Well, mine's pretty obvious. (Gee. Ya think?)
    Created from being angry at a certain waffle headed flip flopping QB who turned his back on the Pack.
    Even though I would really like to "Forget Favre" it's hard for me to turn away from that train wreck.
    (The name has bitten me a couple times in the butt when it's used against me on here.)
    And since this really could be it for BrINT and that he will be forgotten real soon, I'm thinking of changing it to something like "Remember Rodgers" or something to acknowledge our current QB.

    If you figure out how to grow truffles, you'll be famous.

    The GreenGold portion is obvious. The Angel came to me from two sources:1) I went to a Catholic grade school and the nuns thought I was a little angel ( but out of school I was a little devil). 2) Now this is a screw up. I served in the the Air Force and I thought their pilots that did the special air stunts and flyovers were the Blue Angels. Nope the Blue Angels were Navy Pilots! But I've used it so long, I'll just keep it.

    Yeah, they're ectomycorrhizal meaning they need a symbiotic relationship to a tree to properly form a fruiting body. Sort of similar to the Morels (see avatar above) but not quite...Neither has been commercially releasable to my knowledge..although if someone here owns an apple orchard and wants to let me experiment on their land id be happy to :)
    Thatd be sweet though, wouldnt it? Growing some fat-@$$ truffles and taking those suckers to market. I seen 1 truffle sell for $300,000 (DANG!) (not with my own eyes, on TV of course).
    I mostly just mess around with Oyster Mushrooms (below) and the commons that you see around (Portobellas, White Button, etc) . It makes me feel like a SCIENTIST!!! lol, with all the lab supplies and all sterile procedures and all that fun stuff :)

    After reading some of yours, mine seems pretty lame. Didn't put a lot of thought into it but yet it seemed to represent my love for the team. I wish I was "Packer Princess" instead.
