I use the Watts' Tops as a user name due to the top turning and selling business which I have fallen into.  I really should be more creative--suggestions? :-\

I think your screename is great, Walter.  I changed mine from yophosis to Neff a while back to be a little less creative and more direct about who I am.  Elsewhere on the internets, folks seem to use their anonymity to be brash and rude.  There are identity security concerns of course, but some accountability out there would be nice.

Middle School:

Me and two others were discussing the possibility of telekinesis, and I said "if you got your brain to send out waves of the perfect frequency by thinking the perfect thought, you could theoretically manipulate an object."

Then my mate said "Monkey... Cymbal Monkey... Cymbal Monkey riding a llama... the universe explodes"

Great that I can now understand most of the meaning of people's usernames.

Some of my favorite things in my collection are from Silver Top Beer, plus that is what I look like now!

Mine was taken from one of my favorite (And one of the most absurd) movies I've seen. Neville Flynn (a.k.a. Agent Flynn) is Samuel L Jackson's character's name.

I always use either AgentFlynn or B-Hitch/Bhitch (My first and last name shortened and mashed together... I'm guessing my parents didn't see that one coming when they named me)
