    Quoted from crazypinballguy:

    My wife and I caught pinball fever a few years ago.
    While driving to Pinfest in Allentown, my wife discovered Pinside on her phone and said this site is great!! She signed up as "CrazyPinballGirl."
    "I guess I'll be, CrazyPinballGuy then," I said.
    Almost 3 years later, she's probably been on Pinside, 5 or 6 times ever.
    I'm on Pinside more than that in one day.
    Now, who's crazier?

    That’s a funny story!

    Mine looks self-explanatory, but there is more going on than meets the eye.

    Elvis (whose birthday I share) always half mumbled "thankyouverymuch."

    However, that is not Elvis in my avatar, it's Andy Kaufman, doing his excellent Elvis impersonation.

    You may remember the gag, where his timid foreigner character would do bad impersonations, followed by the killer Elvis one, and after each, meekly saying "tengyouveddymuch."

    That meek voice is what I hear internally when I parse my username. I wish everyone could hear it, since I've had reactions before where it seems they think for some reason that I think my every utterance deserves applause. Hardly!

    ...just most of the time!

    I knew Elvis was alive!

    Quoted from Gort:

    One of my favorite movies. You know the one

    Ironically, on the other site I use my screen name at, the forum mods are known as "Gorts" and are addressed as such by all there.

    I'm a long-time Miami Dolphins fan. Back in the day I needed a user name for website forums. Mostly automobile repair and fishing related forums. I stuck with DanMarino, my favorite QB of all time. I'm still using it now that I'm hooked on pinball machines.

    I really enjoyed the HBO series Rome. The character Titus Pullo always cracked me up.

    I started using "Medisinyl" ages ago when creating a priest class character in Everquest. Just the "metal band" style of spelling medicinal (which is an ugly looking word IMO...I fixed it for my preference ).

    Guess it stuck as I've used it for many games since, and this forum.

    Have a large tattoo of a demon on my right calf... Chose that name back when I used to play Counter Strike competetively 20 years ago and have used it since on everything.

    I have a tattoo of a large Celtic cross on my left calf, but Calfcross just doesn't have the same ring to it... Lol

    I grew up riding a big wheel in a very poor section of the south side of Syracuse New York. There was one kid in my neighborhood whose parents were well off had a green machine which was an expensive big wheel. I always wish I had one. Later in life I raced go-karts at the Waterford Speedbowl in Connecticut. I painted it green and my number was 19. I selected 19 to help me remember my wedding anniversary. GreenMachine19. Kind of rhymes also.

    I've been a bass player for 30 years and I played and toured in a band called "Q" from 00-17'. Previous to "Q" I played for another band that was on the soundtrack to a movie called "Lowball" that starred Everlast and during filming he gifted us his leather "187" vest and we used that as part of our gimmick after that so that number has been part of a couple different incarnations of screen names over the years including here, KLOV & local arcade sites, etc....

    My sister started calling me Minishark when I was in law school.

    #168 1 year ago

    I started with my usual forum and personal nickname Nutty but changed it to my real name. I was having a hard time getting people on here to trust when I started out so this helped.

    Well I was a submarine sailor in the US Navy and we called ourselves bubbleheads which is really a durogatory name surface warfare pukes gave us, but we embraced it just to piss them off. I dropped the extra "B" because IRC chat handles used to only allow 9 characters max back in the early days. It also gets people to ask why it's misspelled all the time and I get to tell them this story.

    Here I am, thinking it was because you are a huge fan of Michael Buble.

    Submarines is why I’m trapped in Groton, CT. Fellow bubblehead. Thank you for your service!

    Haha, Spent many a day/night in Groton during offcrew... on and off for about 4 years and 6 Strategic Deterrence patrols on the USS Andrew Jackson and one on the USS Will Rodgers. Part of the 44 for Freedom fleet and a Cold War veteran from the 80's. It is unfortunate that the Russians blew up Chernobyl in '86 but thats the reason I work writing code for a large national bank instead of working as a nuke reactor operator for the power companies. I got out of the Navy a few months after that and the civilian nuclear power industry was in a massive decline due to the accident. Stayed away from nuclear power ever since and now kind of glad I did. Radioactivity is not something you really want to be near on a long term basis, especially when being done for "profit" and running at 99% power all the time. The Navy knew how to do nuclear well, but even then they were not perfect.

    #174 1 year ago

    My name in reverse. The 1 was because at some point, the name was already taken somewhere ...
