SuperGrover's super powers on Sesame Street are effectively limited to flying, crashing whilst trying to land, acting daft, and yelling "wubba wubba wubba" at problems.

Any resemblance to my actual puzzling ability are, of course, purely conincidental.

There are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who know binary, and those who do not.

sigh. Mine is my name, with the word "the" stuck in front. I am so dull. Crying

I wish I hadn't used my real name, because last winter Sparkplug tracked me down and built a very rude snowman on my front lawn, which scared the neighbours' dog.

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered...

Embarassed mine just comes from how my favourite phrase translates. It just sounds in English though Sad But hey, registered on a few sites and it's easier to keep the same name than to use different ones. Plus i have the memory of your average 193 yr old so it's definately easier all round just to keep the same one that i've been using for a few years Very Happy

Some of yours sounds dead interesting though!

Totally Urban!! Angelic

Thats just off the scale - totally urban sweetie xxx

Mine has been my nickname since I was 14. Got it after a fight at a beer bash in the country. I've worn it proudly ever since. Even though I did lose the fight.

A lone dark figure stood on the bloodied ground.
Defeated riddles and puzzles laid heaped around.
The villagers watched with wonder and awe,
At the long hard battle and all that they saw.
To alleviate the curiousity that would surely grow,
They decided this figure, this man, they should know.

They approached the man and asked of his quest.
"Tis evil riddles and foul puzzles I seek to best.
I'm one brain cell short of an intelligent mind.
The aid of others, along my journey I find.
To save this land from vile cryptic clues,
To fight them in battle, and try not to lose."

They asked the weary strong stranger of his name,
"My name doesn't matter. I am not after the fame.
If a name you must have to tell children the story.
Tell them of the man in battle, who sought no glory.
Solace from evil riddles and foul puzzles he gave.
I am the dark warrior known as Panama the Brave.

Mine is Esperanto for Moon Fire. I needed a screen name a few years back and at that time I was in the process of learning Esperanto so I chose LunoFajro. The "aj" is pronouced like an "I" Smile

My current first initial and my maiden name. (Yes, I changed my first name as well) Of course, since I'm male, no one ever expects that I've ever had anything but my original birth name.

I could call it a bachelor name, but with the number of forms I've filled out over the years with a 'maiden name', I prefer to scoff each time at sexist society.

Don't know if you have the lollies called "Sherbies" elsewhere in the world but they are my favourite lollies and i was trying to pick a username a while ago and it just popped into my head.

I like putting them in the microwave for about 8 seconds. Don't try this at home kids!

(if you don't have them they are orangey chewy lollies with sherbet in the middle).
