    What made you choose the name you did?

    I'm Noomi because I saw Prometheus and thought Noomi Rapace played a fantastic part (she stole every scene). Strange name but I liked it enough to choose it.

    How about you?:cool:

    I did a lot of substitute teaching. The kids called me Mr. H. because for them to pronounce my last name correctly I would have had to cut out their tongues.

    This question gets asked a lot, but what the hell.

    Mine is simple...I have 4 children, and I used the first letter of each of their first names.

    Mine should be quite obvious....

    My real name is Nick...

    Funny part is - everyone calls me Swoop. That's my real nickname.

    My handle reflects the way my granddaughters appear to view me. They told me i was a lot like Legolas in the "Lord of the Rings" movie. Alas, they'll be teenagers soon an I'm sure my heroic image will blur, in their eyes.

    Gregory Van Leer, Jr. aka "The Infidel" came up with his rap name the same exact way I came up with my nickname... he was a fan of Mike Savage as I am... Savage used to open his show saying "Hellooooo Infidels...!!!" and I started calling myself The Infidel. Have been since 2001 when I found his show.

    Had this as ringtone for longest.... had to get rid of it because I worked at GE and there are tons of middle easterners working there
