I chose the name "Molly Maude" because one of my grandmothers invented that name for herself
on her first day of school when the scary school marm demanded she stand up, straight and tall,
and tell her first, middle and last name ... not HAVING a middle name, my Grandma stood up ...
as tall as a 5-year-old can stand ... and said loudly that her name was "Molly Maude Walker" ...
which caused everyone else in class to gasp ... because "Molly" WASN'T her name! no one knew
where she'd come up with that "Molly" ...

I thought that showed an admirable amount of bravery and ingenuity !!! and it amuses me!

its obvious where HD comes from. HD was not as popular when i chose to use it 3 years ago. nowadays everything is advertised with HD in it.

lookin back to when you had to have the little black box and we were given a timeline to buy a new tv (to help the economy) to get the crystal clear channels, even with rabbit ears. i still have one of those black boxes in my bedroom with a 25 inch rca i bought over 10 years ago and i guess that thang is never gonna peter out.

ive been somewhat successful here on a dating site with HD.

there is a new technology coming out soon thats beyond 3d could be a little pricey. its ok...... i'll just keep my clear picture 55 inch HD and oh by the way i still use rabbit ears.

When I was in the navy years ago, I was in communications intelligence - basically, I spent the cold war listening to the godless commies on the other side of the pole, cryptography, etc - all in all, a very cool, interesting way to earn a living :) I even learned to speak Russian. And then I took an honours degree in Soviet & East European Studies in university.

Admiral Sergei Gorshkov was one of the main architects of the Soviet Navy - he, more than anybody else, was responsible from turning the Soviet navy from basically a coastal defence force into what was arguably the best blue water navy in the world.

When I first got online in the early '80s, I started using Gorshkov as a name on-line - and I've used Gorshkov almost everywhere, ever since.

@aussieblues:

I've been a major fan of the Bondi Cigars for years.

This is a great thread.

I chose my username because I like astrology and astronomy and ancient beliefs. Since these asteroids (dwarf planets?) well aspect difficult planetary positions in my natal and transitory charts in astrology, and are strong in their prominence in the asteroid belt, they deserved my respect. :)

Apart from that, in the religion of ancient Rome, Goddess Vesta is the virtuoso of home and family where is Goddess Ceres is a hot momma who is high in fertility and is the mother of mothers. I used to have a username with a Grecian goddess who was the mother of all the gods and goddesses and mothers. In astrology Vesta makes a conjunction with my natal moon -- which is said to be good for business and born nurtures.

everburning- So your favorite element is fire? According to astrology, I'm a fire sign (Leo). Elementally speaking, in your terms. I did the test one time and I'm a blend of earth and water :)

I used this username because I've met and/or dated too many people that are anti-military, and I wanted to make a point of this is who I am. Also why I use the profile picture I do. It's not 'all' that I am, but it is a major deal breaker if they have negative views towards the military and/or weapons.

Mine is a former televsion series. I have a framed press-kit photo hanging on my office wall at work. It fits into my lifestyle so I went with that. The numbers are my DOB.


Love that show, it should have went on longer! Go Bruce!

I'm a huge horror fan, love cheesy horror flicks, also a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Torgo is the name of a character from the late 60's horror schlock classic "Manos - The Hands Of Fate", Manos is one of the films they viewed on MST3K.

I chose synchronicity because it seems to be the required force to cause simultaneous coincidences that are related in a meaningful way to happen. It's a conceptual relationship of minds, defined as the relationship between ideas. Originally developed and defined by Carl Gustav Jung.
