This name came out of staring at a Starcraft form 2 years ago. For some reason, I needed to use 'blingbling' in it (dunno why). But of course, 'bling bling' isnt the best name. And I just so happened to have some papers on my desk about fish (used to be fish-y), and a Neon Tetra was on the top. kaPOW.


The other name I more commonly go by (I tried signing up as it here... It didnt like me then...) is wanabedriver. I had to make up an email address because my math teacher was technology savvy, and I didnt have one back then. I spent the whole period thinking and thinking, but couldnt come up with anything. So finally, I figured I just REALLY wanted to drive (in 8th grade), so I quickly typed it out, and being just so fabulouse at speeling, 'wannabe' came out as 'wanabe'.

......and for some reason, some people online ask about my name "what does 'wan a bed river' mean?"

Well Leviathan is a monstrous sea creature mentioned in the book of Job (and a few other places) in the Bible, and that's the screen name I use everywhere, "Leviathan" was take so I added 41 (which was my high school basketball and baseball number).

I do lots of off road traveling. My H2 is the most comfortable 4x4 I've ever owned. So there is my sign on name, pretty simple and easy to type.

mmmm, not quite. Out of the box they're just a pile of parts. I don't have the "Ready To Run" types. 235mm class is just a hair slower than the 8th scale onroad cars. My 1:10 scale 235mm cars are Serpent Impacts. I run RB Concepts .15 turbo engines in them. The engine alone costs twice what a traxxas nitro 4-tec does.

I AVERAGE over 50 MPH on a fairly tight road course.

“Tollhouse”. It was earned in networking class at West Virginia Junior College during a question and answer session. I had given the correct answer every time and a fellow student said “Give him a cookie, in fact, make it a Tollhouse!” The name stuck

it's basically an expression of my opinion on religion...

seven considered a lucky number, demons and hell considered bad, blah blah blah.

then none of it really holds any validity in the real world. it's all stories and myths and tall tales.

it's a bit abstract in thought, but it makes sense to me.

stadium trucks for me. heavily modded traxxas nitro rustler, pretty much all titanium (shocks, shock towers, u-joints, bearings, diff gears, etc.) with a straight black body. it looks sweet

.15 engine, running 25% nitro. it can hit almost 50 on straights, which i think is pretty damn good for a stadium truck.

Mine is a little triky to figure out...

Matt, a strange abriviation to my first name, Matthew, and very close to what everyone calls me, matt.

theniceguy, well, i guess it implies that I am a guy, and also fairly nice.

I came up with the name 4 or 5 years ago when I was creating an account for United Devices cancer research. I wrote down "matt", and then since I was donating my spare power and processing time to cancer research, I wrote "theniceguy".

I have used the name Consumer***** for gaming and other online things previously. It was partially from Don Hertzfeldt's "Rejected", and partially an inside joke with people who know me. I am quite the opposite of a consumer ***** and will almost always do something myself rather than spending any money. I thought matttheniceguy was a friendlier name to use on the forum, so I went with that.

Edit - Hmm... good thing I didn't go with Consumer Horror by a different spelling.. it seems to be a blocked word...

my nickname and handle is renegade, rebelwarlock is a spinoff when renegade is taken

Renegade:
One who rejects a religion, cause, allegiance, or group for another; a deserter.
An outlaw; a rebel.

both of those hold true for me.

Rebel(n.):
One who rebels or is in rebellion
Rebel(v.):
To refuse allegiance to and oppose by force an established government or ruling authority.
To resist or defy an authority or a generally accepted convention.

all true.

Warlock:
A male witch, sorcerer, wizard, or demon

i'm half goth/half geek.

hope that's at least slightly amusing/interesting. needless to say, i get in trouble a lot.

Well, after using nigeljedi for years and years (yes, I'm a huge Star Wars fan), I wanted something new. I just have an odd sense of humor, and I was thinking how funny it was when people mangle the English language and generally make goofballs of themselves; you know, when people say "Wal-Marts" or "high-fa-lutent" (for affluential)...one of my favorites, and I do this myself sometimes, was "samwich" or "sammich" instead of "sandwich".

So, in a self-absorbed kind of way, "hamsammich" seemed both funny and, well, funny. I guess that's it.
