    OT: Reasons for screen names...

    I just got thinking about this the other day, what does you screen name mean?
    The reason I wondered this is because it finally struck me that it must seem odd that mine is Wolverine68 on a Cyclone message board, so I'll start.
    I have used various versions of Wolverine since I was in junior high. No, I'm not a closet Michigan fan, I was a devote comics fan back then (and yes, a card carrying geek) and my favorite character was Wolverine of the X-Men. Oh, and I was born in 1968.
    I would love to hear other members stories!

    Re: OT: Reasons for screen names...

    A simple derivitive of my name. I don't hide my true identity on a message board, as we all know.

    Edit: I just realized there are now two pics of me in my posts....that is excessive... time to change.

    Edit #2: Yeah this is better.

    Do I really need to explain? Good topic.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Really, because of my name. I've always been a Superman fan and it just sounded right.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: OT: Reasons for screen names...

    Mine is a long story.

    But it stems from my fraternity nickname, my last name being frequented with "Mac" and yes.. has a relation to CrisKros (or however you spell that) and their song "Jump, jump"
