    Okay folks, we've had a lot of new members lately posting under some interesting e-handles. Not to mention some older members with extremely unique names. In this thread, explain why you chose your username, and take credit for your creativity!

    I'll kick us off. Johnny Walker Blue Label, also known as "Mr. Walker's Amber Restorative", is the finest blended scotch on the planet. To quote the inimitable Christopher Hitchens (who was discussing a sister JW product, Black Label):

    "The best blended Scotch in the history of the world... breakfast of champions, accept no substitute."

    Your turn, SDN. Let's hear it!

    I was drunk one night and couldnt fall asleep, so I started watching Lord of the Rings and browsing the internet to increase my chances of getting accepted into medical school.

    I wanted Biology to be a part of it, but I also wanted an animal to go after the Bio part. So Beaver seemed like a decent fit.... BioBeaver.

    I also like to think that if any animal were to do scientific research, it would probably be the beaver.

    Frazier was original name in 2009... then I changed it. Now its back to the original form. The handle you are referring to meant nothing...As in I needed a new temp name so blind-picked it from a name book.
