Talking Explain your screen name.

Thought it might be fun to explain or screen names and where they came from and if they mean anything. Honestly some of them I don't even know how to pronounce. For me, Natedogg was given to me as a nickname about 10-12 years ago when the rappers Natedogg and Warren G came out. For some reason it stuck and people are still calling me it today. The 1026 is my old house address. Something easy to remember.

Before buying our house we lived in a triplex and our front neighbors had two children, a boy and a girl. The girl used to call me Momo because she couldn't pronounce my name yet, and the boy called my wife who's name is Inge-lise "ees" so I put the two together and changed the spelling a bit to form momoese.

I picked bananaman just off the top of my head and stuck the 88 on the end because at the time my favorite NASCAR driver was Dale Jarrett and his number was 88. He has since retired. Also, I think Bananaman was already taken so I had to add something to it. It has always bugged me that the "b" isn't capitalized, but I haven't been able to figure out how to change that little detail. Any help with that, Jarred?

These should be fun to read. Thanks for posting. I'm especially interested in hearing about Rmplmnz's screen name!

la·gniappe ( lan-yap)
n. Chiefly Southern Louisiana & Mississippi
1. A small gift presented by a storeowner to a customer with the customer's purchase.
2. An extra or unexpected gift or benefit.

I named my wholesale tropical fish biz "lagniappe" because I always put extra fish in the bags to cover any potential losses .

csp - are my initials, and proletariat well. . .

Quote:
In Marxist theory, the proletariat is that class of society which does not have ownership of the means of production. Proletarians are wage-workers, while some refer to those who receive salaries as the salariat. For Marx, however, wage labor may involve getting a salary rather than a wage per se.

Marxism sees the proletariat and bourgeoisie (merchant class) as occupying conflicting positions, since (for example) factory workers automatically wish wages to be as high as possible, while owners and their proxies wish for wages (costs) to be as low as possible.

According to Marxism, capitalism is a system based on the exploitation of the proletariat by the bourgeoisie (the "capitalists", who own and control the means of production). This exploitation takes place as follows: the workers, who own no means of production of their own, must seek jobs in order to live. They get hired by a capitalist and work for him, producing some sort of goods or services. These goods or services then become the property of the capitalist, who sells them and gets a certain amount of money in exchange. One part of the wealth produced is used to pay the workers' wages, while the other part (surplus value) is split between the capitalist's private takings (profit), and the money used to pay rent, buy supplies and renew the forces of production. Thus the capitalist can earn money (profit) from the work of his employees without actually doing any work, or in excess of his own work. Marxists argue that new wealth is created through work; therefore, if someone gains wealth that he did not work for, then someone else works and does not receive the full wealth created by his work. In other words, that "someone else" is exploited. Thus, Marxists argue that capitalists make a profit by exploiting workers.

OK this may sound a bit ostentatious the name was derived from Damocles which at the time i created it was already taking so i changed the spelling but this is were it comes from
"Sword of Damocles"

The Damocles of the anecdote was an excessively flattering courtier in the court of Dionysius II of Syracuse, a fourth century BC tyrant of Syracuse. He exclaimed that, as a great man of power and authority, Dionysius was truly fortunate. Dionysius offered to switch places with him for a day, so he could taste first hand that fortune. In the evening a banquet was held, where Damocles very much enjoyed being waited upon like a king. Only at the end of the meal did he look up and notice a sharpened sword hanging by a single piece of horsehair directly above his head. Immediately, he lost all taste for the fine foods and beautiful boys, and asked leave of the tyrant, saying he no longer wanted to be so fortunate.
Dionysius had successfully conveyed a sense of the constant fear in which the great man lives. The theme is that virtue is sufficient for living a happy life.
And that there can be nothing happy for the person over whom some fear always looms?

Even if you're not a math geek, you can easily understand Hamiltonian Operator !!

Suppose you are measuring the work performed by an operator, using Sir William Hamilton's measurement system. If the operator can get the same work done regardless of what order the required tasks are performed in, then the operator is Hamiltonian.

Mine is actually pretty dumb, and comes from a drunken Tuesday afternoon my freshman year in college. It was a simpler time, when the air was clean, the colors were bright and people were just friendlier. It was 1986.

The big bad bully AT&T was being broken up and there was a small upstart company called MCI causing a stir in St. Louis. They were marketing the hell out of the company in Missouri, and it just so happened that my best friend from the corridor was from there.

So there we were, a couple of idiot 18 year olds, drunk as hell at 3:00 in the afternoon on Tuesday. I look across and ask him, "What the hell is thebes?" He looks at me, with a stupid look on his face (that happened a lot in those days) and wondered what in the world I was talking about. "Thebes, what the hell is thebes? It's right there on your sweatshirt!" I responded. He looked down, pulled the front of his shirt taught to reveal the whole front:

MCI
The Best

Well, this guy wound up being one of my best friends ever (and still is to this day) and because of him, the nickname stuck until I moved to Dayton. I added the 11 because Thebes was taken on almost every board I tried to join (I learned later in college it is also the name of ancient cities in both Egypt and Greece). 11 is my favorite number from when I was a kid. I was always the smallest kid by far on any sports team I'd join. My dad always though the number 1 looked "cute" on my back. I hated it, it was a reminder of how small I was. We compromised on 11. Problem is, when writing it, I never know which 1 to put first!

Lorax comes from Dr. Seuss' book "The Lorax" - I chose it because our philosophies mesh up pretty well. Also, I lifted myself from a land that cuts down its trees with no regard, to one that actively cherishes them.

Cookiecows comes from a breed of cow that I fell in love with. When we moved to Kentucky I drove past a cow everyday that I thought had been born with a one of a kind pattern. A black headed, white bellied, black butted cow that looked like an oreo cookie. To make a long story short I sent my husband to buy that cow as I was afraid it would end up at the stock yard and we found out that it was actually a breed of cow. We couldn't buy her but the farmer sold us a heifer from her that had the same markings. After aquiring some purebreds we were hooked. We now have several registered "Belted Galloways" but that first cow that isn't even purebred will live out her life here with us.
