: What's in a name?
11-16-2008, 01:55 AM
So, why did you choose your screen name when you signed up?
Mine is Riverratrider...
On the Alleghany river in western PA, there is a small group of river enthusiasts that live in an area called Mosegrove. The locals call us the riverrat's. And growing up I would ride anything that I could get my hands on...boats, dirtbikes, cars, and so on... I like my toys fast and my ladies faster [cheers]
So, what's with your name?
11-16-2008, 02:00 AM

Mine came about 2-fold....
1) When I got my first set of personal lic plates, I could not think of what I really wanted. The lady at the counter got frustrated after looking up 4 or 5 things and they were all taken. She then suggested the number one song on the charts at the time, I looked it up and viola, Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" became my first vanity plate!
2) One of my favorite shows was Sledge Hammer (kept me in stiches!)
Tagline:If This is Law Enforcement, God Help us All!
Someone alluded to the way I drive...I don't know about all that [paranoid]

My original SN here was shamrock13, which is a sn I have used everywhere in some form or another for a long time, but back in may I had it changed to ShamrockSVT...
I use the screen name "shamrock" because of my heritage and it was also an occaisional knickname in real life, which has a funny (private) backstory to it
SVT...well I drive an SVTF...the fact that I put it in my screen name...its an ironic twist that I think I only find funny....
11-16-2008, 06:36 PM

If i told you everything then i'd have to kill you, but I'll try and give a brief summary. I've always loved science and i've always been interested in science fiction. Watching tons of science fiction I become enamored with the future and everything that could ever possible be in it. One of those things were flying cars, and one of those movies was BTTF2. After that movie I was all about me some flying cars! Weird I know... but i don't care. So, I'm really young, i see all this stuff in movies but i don't see it in real life... i'm like, what gives? Why does the world have to be so boring? If you make an idea happen in the movies then why not real life? So when i got a bit older I started researching antigravity technologies.... after a lot of disappointments and extremely high naive hopes being shattered i got a little mad. Gravity, of all the things in the universe, is probably one of the things that i hate the most. If it weren't for gravity being so complicated and our technology being so primitive we could finally figure it out and yes, then I could have my flying car and the world, aesthetically at least, would be the way i always wanted it to be. So i got to thinking(and go with me here cause i know it's not completely factual) where could i go where gravity wasn't a problem... duh, space. So, since there is "no" gravity in outer space I decided the space gravity was for me.... get it? that's pretty much how it all came together right there.... that's it. Yeah, there's gravity in space, i know, but at least it's not as strong as it is here. Over the years the name has come to fit other parts of my personality that were unintentional. I'm kinda "out there" sometimes, so just SPACE is fitting I suppose. Kinda weird, kinda cool, all space. spacegravity4me. P.S. Also just gravity for short is fine too, doesn't really matter to me.

Well.... my screen name used to be SPIoftheDesert because I had an 02 Focus & an 01 Escort with an SPI's..... in the Desert.
