What is the Story behind your Screen Name?

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

What is the Story behind your Screen Name?

Post by david58 » Tue Dec 26, 2006 8:33 pm

Ok this outa be real good LMAO. Here is mine I buy this 58 Baja bug someone took the top off. I go to the tag office and they say its a 59. Well I already had my screen name and figured nobody would notice the difference so I never changed it. That's why I'm David58bug. I can't wait to hear some of the reasons for the screen names we have.
Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

My name is David and I like to eat too. But that has nothing to do with my STF name.

I am a Marine! Hince the name Leatherneck. Once a Marine always a Marine, I have retired from active duyt but I still am Marine. Only one way to get out of being a Marine and that is a Big Chicken Dinner. Semper Fi!

I guess I am posting on this topic with a HUGE target on my back...

No... it has nothing to do with my shorts... really.

Through all of my road racing over the years, big bore street bikes, karts, sports cars, all of my friends have called me Skidmark. it rhymes with my last name, and I have left many at the tracks I have run on. There's no feeling on earth like a 125 MPH four wheel drift on pavement!

I'm pretty unimaginative. I'm from Florida, and have 2 buggy projects. On my local car forums my name is "Just Dave", that's how boring I am

My wife called me this to one of the VW club members...

Long story short, there isn't a waking moment that I'm not plotting my driving, phoning and/or email around parts for some project that's out 5 years in the future.

She's grown to know that there's always a trade or shuffle going on....

Ours came from my son and I acting wild at Windrock OHV park at the play ground. Someone said we were acting like a bunch of wild kids and it stuck. Most everyone knows me as Flipper (Navy days) or Tatakai my Japanese name that also comes from my son and I. Tatakai means fighter and my sons name is Tooshi which means champion fighter, we got those names because we are always play fighting with each other.
Everything revolves around my son.

Kinda lame really.....I'm Norwegian...my ancestors were Vikings...thus the name.
The name goes WAY back in my family....I grew up in a small town...Everyone knew everyone else...My grandfather and Grandmother spoke with a heavy accent. So as a nickname he was given "the Viking" after his first name....the tradition just past itself to my father and then to me. Nothing fancy.

Questions of his sexual orientation persisted in public, until 7 April 1998, when he was arrested for "engaging in a lewd act" in a public toilet in a park in Beverly Hills, California. He was arrested by an undercover policeman named Marcelo Rodriguez.

George Michael: "Well, I was followed into the restroom, and then, this cop – well, I didn't know he was a cop at the time, obviously – he started playing this game. I think it's called ‘I'll show you mine, you show me yours, and then when you show me yours, I'm gonna nick you!'"[3]
After pleading "no contest" to the charge, Michael was fined $810 and sentenced to 80 hours of community service. Soon afterwards, Michael made a video for his single "Outside" which was clearly based on the public toilet incident and which featured men dressed up as policemen kissing. Rodriguez, the police officer, claimed that this video "mocked" him, and also that Michael had slandered him in interviews, and in 1999 brought a $10 million court case in California against the singer who has amassed an estimated personal fortune of 70 million pounds ($120 million).The court dismissed the case on the grounds related to the officer's status as a public official, but an appeals court reinstated the case on 3 December 2002.
