Before I was a full blown furry (I have since recovered and have become a normal contributing member of society. I apologize for the past furriness... stuff...), I was a huge fan of Brian Jacque's Redwall books. The greatest, most powerful warriors were always badgers, and were my favorite. The Kamikaze I stol- was inspired by the UK Team Fortress Classic mapper, Kamikazi. Most of the time now my online handle is zSilver_Fox. Silver_Fox was from when I was a furry. I had an acquaintance I played TFC with on one server a lot named zQuark. One day after some excellent fragging, another acquaintance said "Team Z!" and put the z before their name. I followed suit.

Kwok is just one name i go by. I used it for my Gaming Avatars in days gone by. Its the last name of one of my friends. I found it likeable so i used it as a kind of joke. Back in 2005 when i joined these forums, I couldnt use the name i normally use which is Drago, so Kwok just kind of popped up.

Mine is my gamertag/steam name, but "Mucho" started many years ago among my friends. Alot of them were quite athletic and did many manly things so i was called Mucho, with its meaning being the opposite of Macho. the name has stuck and then morphed into Muchoman1 when i got the gamertag/steam account

I was a big fan of the 1982 Clint Eastwood film and have been using the name FireFox ever since. I add 11 or n11 when needed because my dad called me number 11 when I was a baby.

It's my old clan handle. Boring story.

 

What isn't boring, however, is how I received the irl nickname of Bubba.

 

I had just started hanging out with a group of guys, and we had decided to call ourselves the "Brotherhood". To enter into this exclusive, and ancient fraternity, we had to endure an initiation "ritual", and receive a nickname. I'm a large fella, so Bubba was the first thing they thought of. Oh yeah, and my initiation was.... a swift kick to the nuts. Literally, I had to stand there and let it happen. It wasn't too bad though, I got to give "Tweak" what I like to call the "Double Fists of Justice" (trademark pending) It's basically a 2 handed wedgie, wherein the person dealing out the justice attempts (or succeeds, in my case) to fully lift the guilty party into the air solely by his underwear, and proceeds to jut the vic...uh....guilty part up and down 3 times in rapid succesion. I find this maneuver has the greatest effect when the person on the receiving end has a high quality pair of undergarments. It lessens the chance of ripping, thereby allowing the person carrying out the punishment to deal the maximum amount of pai--....er.....justice :evilgrin: .

dr = mechanic

 

Bowtie = Chevrolets

 

put them together and you got dr_bowtie

 

for a long time I ran a small auto mechanic business out of my shop and I rebuilt 1,000s of Chevrolet engines hence the Bowtie part

 

my 1st forums name when i got started was gsrat....again 2 words... gs from the Buick Grand Sport and rat from the Big Block Chevy engine called a rat motor....I never really liked it and then one day I tried the other and it wasnt taken.

 

Now everyone is either bowtie or dr_bowtie and some of them are not me...stealers lol
