    I chose this name because my favorite avatar at the time I registered was a pic of Amelia Earhart.

    Someone else is posting with my real first name. It confuses me sometimes when I'm scrolling down looking for posts I made.

    At least she's also a conservative or I might have a breakdown when I read "my" posts. :lol:

    The company I used to work for transferred me from Chicago to the St Louis area. Before I moved, my regional manager told me that one of the foremen here was called the "Rat in the Hat" by his crew because he was always turning them in for errors. And he always wore a baseball cap on the job.

    That foreman turned out to be one of my most trusted employees, and only turned guys in when they went way beyond accepted company practice.

    I took his nickname first in honor of him, and second to poke a thumb in my RM's eye. I had a framed copy of my original avatar in my office until they laid me off last year.

    Once upon a time several people posted under this account, hence the name manifold.

    But that was a while ago and it's been just me for some time now.
