I've read your username a million times before and I only just now realized that its 'Paramemetic' and not 'Parametric.'

You are not the only one. Probably 7/10 people when typing this username end up with either Parametric or Parametic somehow. The brain is a fantastic thing and top down processing is awesome, but it makes IRC hard since people rarely ping my name, I have to set a special notice to just "para."

Lipstick Apathy



It's a variation of "gay man" adapted from an extinct slang language used by (British) gay men in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The language, called Polari, kinda sounds like the slang used in A Clockwork Orange. The word for gay man is Omi-Palone. So it's slightly adapted.

Dec 17, 2003


Back in high school some friends and I were smoking some pot. Somehow we got on the conversation of drug dealer names, and a friend said that he once got some pot from a guy who called himself Twinkie Fat Sack. I thought that was so very funny. I think my name was to long so I had to unfortunately use Sac, which quite honestly makes the name not so awesome, but oh well, I dont want to spend money on changing it.

Also, Kim Stanley Robinson likes to use the name to refer to a thread that keeps people from loosing each other in low visibility in his books. I've never found anything to suggest that's a real-world thing though.

Soul Dentist
Mar 17, 2009


Mine's a reference to a character in Thomas Pynchon's book "V". Eigenvalue is a dentist who creates a set of false teeth each from a different precious mineral, and has bizarre theories on dentistry work on a spiritual level. An "eigenvalue" is also a mathematical concept that I don't exactly understand.

So I like the character and the book, and it's never taken on anything on the internet.

Jump outside the level and jetpack around, use weapons that don't exist in the game, play with the lighting. Wooo~

From my electrical well
Its a simple message and I'm leaving out the whistles and bells

e: I always had creative problems with names for characters as a child, in most games I would still just name myself thor because it obviously works really well for a ton of those settings..I still can't come up with cool names

I don't want to be your little research monkey boy, the creature that I am is only going to destroy.

I used to have a handle names 'Spatula' back in the day when WinMX used to have chat rooms.

I have used the handle Spatula ever since, however some derp already registered with the name, and I was left to fill in some space after it. I decided to become the Spatula Massacre...

I will find you, Spatula, and I will kill you.

When I was in middle school and I somehow suckered my father into getting AOL when it was 10 hours a month or whatever it was back then, I came up with my username. Nine Inch Nails has always been a favorite band of mine, and I added meister to the end because my 11 or 12 year old brain thought it sounded funny together. It ended up sticking for ever now and I use it for almost everything.

Now that I've been forced to think about my username because of this thread, I'm realizing how terrible it is. Thanks guys.

I thought Phoenixes were pretty awesome and started using that as my tag whenever I could, but it obviously was taken on a lot of places. One night I was dicking around on a new computer with a giant folder of stock images that came with it and accidentally reversed to colors on a picture of a Phoenix and it looked pretty rad. I live in Minnesota so it was a natural progression.
