Why/how did you choose your BLF Username?

I always find it hard to come up with a new username, therefore I call myself ChibiM on many forums Smile

Why did you guys choose your BLF username? 

My reason: 

I can't remember exactly how it started, but people called me Chibi Marco, after a Japanese cartoon character. So I used the abbreviated version: ChibiM

So, what is your reason?

A friend of mine at work once said I looked like a “ slim kango “ meaning kangaroo. Well it stuck so I figured might as well embrace it. Now I use it for all my forum names.

It’s been my cb handle since the “Smokey and the Bandit” days.

The youtube reviewer WeAllJuggleKnives used the phrase “eyeball fryer” in his Thrunite TN36 and TN36-UT reviews to describe the turbo mode.

My other hobby is FPV quad racing; even after several years I am not that good at it and, as I found out, it is one of the most expensive hobbies out there (parts, maintenance and crashes).
Also, I can’t fly when it is raining or windy, when I am working, can’t fly at night, can’t fly around most gov buildings or airports/above cars/vehicles/people/animals, etc… a ton of money for a few hours of flying each month.
anyway, that’s how I picked my username.

 Ha , ha , ha..., stupid me , somehow I mistaken the user name (cera@1967) with the password  I used on most of my devices and sites ( cause I always forget them !!!) ...

Cera is my wife name and 1967 is the year she was born.., in this way I can not forget the passwords !!! , unless I 'm going to get Alzheimer... <img src= " />

How did I come up with my username?

A couple of reasons...

I am a big fan of some Resident Evil video games, and the early ones took place in Raccoon City.

When RE4 came out, I longed for the days when the games took place in the United States.

Spoiler Alert: Raccoon City gets practically destroyed by the U.S. Government in the 1990's because it gets overrun by evil.

And I had a near-death experience in the 90's.

So it all sort of fits to call myself what I do.

Years ago I needed a unique user name and I looked up and saw my toolbox, brand name Homak. So I combined my initials, DC with Homak, and voila! dchomak.

Interesting. I knew I had seen this kind of thread before, but a simple search didn't bring it up... oops. 

So, let's call this the blf username thread #2

That's all right.

The other thread has been dead for over five years, so a new one won't hurt anything.

No problem with a second thread!

Consider the word research. Usually research is thought of as quest to uncover new information, but the word re-search would suggest a second search for old information that has already been discovered before

I’ve probably been using skinny_tie as a username for 20 years.

Skinny Tie is a character from the song Skinny Tie Sensurround by the Scottish indie pop group Bis.

Bis wrote:
Skinny Tie is just someone you know / And not someone you’d call a friend / You wouldn’t notice if you hadn’t seen him for weeks / But you know you’ll see him again

I certainly don’t want to be like the character, but I like the song and it popped into my head when I was trying to think of a username.

Back in school around 1997, i used to drink this yoghurt drink everyday during lunch.


So one time my classmate called me yokiamy, which comes from yoki combined with my (degenerated) family name.

I’ve been using this nickname ever since.
Don’t drink it anymore though Facepalm

“Flasholism is the most severe form of flashlight use and involves the inability to manage your flashlight use habits. It is also commonly referred to as flashlight use disorder. Flashlight use disorder is organized into three categories: mild, moderate and severe. Each category has various symptoms and can cause harmful side effects. If left untreated, any type of flashlight use can spiral out of control.”

I always wondered if you named yourself after the Honda! LOL

My friend owned several CRXs. They were fun to drive and surprisingly excellent in the snow.

We welded the doors shut on one and chopped the roof off. That one turned a lot of heads. Party

My name is Jos and 6 years ago I thought that ‘djozz’ sounded kind of cool. In the meantime I think that ‘Jos’ would have been perfectly ok.

link to djozz tests 

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

Upon the remarks that I do not sign off my PM’s as Henk, I have explained quite often that:

One fine morning a very dear (ex) colleague called me absent minded “Henk” two times in a row.
So I told her that I did not have any objections to be “Henk for you too” = Henk4U2.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Back in 1994 I replaced the crappy suspension fork that came with my Giant Cadex CFM-3 with a Manitou 3 from Answer products. I always thought the Manitou 2 was funny (especially since it was a pink tou-2).

Since manithree is a made-up word, it’s almost always available and I use it everywhere.
