I chose this username because at the time (back in 2002 and 2003) I enjoyed playing Doom. Now it just seems childish. I would rather use something like btrettel or Ben as I go on other forums.

Fear Me!

The innocent shall suffer, BIG time. But back on topic, the doubleshot was the gun that got me interested in nerfing. I don't remember if I had any guns when I was younger.

My friend said I was creepy because, "You're always happy. Never mad, never tired. You're creepy."

Of course, I chose Kanashimi as my username. By the way, Kanashimi is Japanese for sadness. =)

I think I made up this name in 1999 when I was playing Star Wars: Episode I Racer. That winged guy said something that sounded like "ootmians". It was a funny sounding word and I liked to make up a lot of words back then, so I came up with "oodalumps". Then I started using it as my online name everywhere. Didn't capitalize it the first time I typed it, so it stays uncapitalized.

Deffinition:
oodalumps - oatmeal with Froot Loops in it. (never ate it before, never will)

A HAH! I just remembered were i got my username from!

I was signing up for some website a while back(can't remember), and t=at the time, my mom was cleaning the roo. I saw that the cleaning stuff had ultra on it (can't remember exatcly) and there were 920 people currently on the site. Therea go.

By the way, Nerfemo sounds like your going to cut yourself with a nerfgun.

Hmm, I don't think I've posted in this thread yet...

My username? Well, this username is a spin-off of a really kool game programmer whose nick is World_Creator. I named myself Galaxy_Creator and quickly dropped the "_Creator" part like it's hot and slapped on a shorter "613". 613 being my birth month, and date. Corny eh? My username can easily be shortened too. G613, plain Galaxy, Gala, or if you want to imply I'm a girl, Gal.

"Devious" is the nickname i got from my girlfriend who remarked to some friends at a concert that i was "Her Devious Boyfriend" and it ended up sticking as a nickname, and now, half the people i know use it in place of my real name

I have neurological disorder; Myoclonus. (similar to epilepsy in some regards.) I have muscle spasms/twitches at random, and under the effect of certain stimuli. Temperature fluctuation is the most dominant trigger. Just about everyone I know, my parents and boss aside, calls me "Twitch."

One time I punched myself in the face. Hard enough that my class ring left a mark in my jaw.

I had a girlfriend who's sibling though she was cheating on me, because they didn't realize that "Twitch" and *Real name here* were the same person, an she was getting phone calls from both people.

The neurologist tells me that people typically grow-out of the disorder in their mid 20's, which I'm approaching. While I'm a bit saddened at th idea of loosing my twitches, (I embraced my idiosyncrasies so fully into my personality/self-identity.) my closest cohorts offer to zap me with a stun gun whenever I'm feeling nostalgic.

The name I use here, and just about everywhere else, I got one day working at my uncle's diner. I had a big load of dishes left to clean before I could leave, and I really wanted to get out of there. So I worked as fast as I could, and one of the cooks said "they don't call him Eddie Octane for nothing." I like the sound of it, and the rest is history.

I wanted to use the name "Nerf in some way" because this is a nerf-inspired website. Also, it sounds like I'm an ambassoder or ranked highly when adding "Mr." :D

No it doesn't. But I picked the name Bomberman because I always used to play Bomberman. When I found the site, one of the first memebers I saw was Captain Slug, so I was like, (! I have to get that avatar!). Later on, I found out it was custom to CS. :( And, I draw comics, and my little logo is a little bomb with eyes. And twitch, I have a nuerological disorder to, terret syndrome. Or, tics. My folks are making me quit modding, because the fumes, and ahesives, are just about the worst thing for me. One of my tics is a type of twitch, but they're usually facial.

Working gas masks run you round $150-1000 if you're interested. At least I think they do; I may be wrong on that one.

OOOOOkay man TMI (jk). Can relate though. BTW it's spelled Tourette.

As for my name, I asked my dad what he thought would be a good name, and so it is.

I didn't choose mine, it was chosen for me. 43 years ago this past Thursday, my parents got married. 35 years ago they fucked and released my dark presence into the world nine months later to torment all of you assholes that can't read the CoC, that ask annoying questions without searching first, and generally drive me fuckin' nuts!

I also use it since I know of at least 5 people in the NIC that I have been to war with that also have the first name of Chris.

6-7 years ago some fucker wouldn't stop singing the oompa-loompa song. For several days, that tortuous, horrible song was stuck in my head. Pretty much every game/forum I've joined since then I've used the sn of ompa for.
