    One of our sister sites has a similar thread and it's been such a treat to follow so I thought it not a bad idea for us here too. Not sure if we already have a thread like this but as I follow the threads I often wonder what someone's username means.

    Me? Well, Orbital is my favorite group of all time and Halcyon and Halcyon+On+On are my favorite all-time songs. My avatars change to fit my mood.

    So what does your username mean and why did you pick it?

    This is a good question.

    Being a big kid fan of Speedy Gonzales, the "Speedy" name stuck with me for a majority of my childhood, because of how I always like slick and fast things, and ways of doing things.

    Gi is actually Japanese for ****...

    So that's how my username came about.

    Truth be told, I was never the most subtle of username creators.

    I was born on an exceptionally rainy day in September. All the babies born were trapped in the hospital due to flooding. I found that a rather cool fact, so I use it.

    Still enjoying this. It gets stuck in your head. The video is trippy and amazing at the same time...

    Such an awesome idea for a username. Seriously.

    Ahh...September babies, you know what that means, right? Somebody had fun around the holidays and New Years Eve the year before. September and October are the most popular birth months and that's the theory!

    I worked at Verizon 8 years ago and our login to the systems was what they called a "5 and 2" which is the first 5 letters of your last name followed by the first 2 letters of your first name thus, mumfoau

    I was born premature. I was actually due to be born almost a month later. In other words, I'm a Valentines Day conception! Haha.

    Thanks! Is the #AC for Atlantic City?He is absolutely the goofiest thing alive. He snorts like a pig and snores all night. Everyone thinks he's a puppy but he's a 6 year old full grown pure bred French Bulldog. He's thinks he's kind of a big deal, I agree...What does your username mean?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1394580371.136881.jpg
