My name is from some ID pictures I had taken where I looked completely baked. Then I was going along needed a new username for YouTube to watch some of the videos and there was the pics on my desk. Was going to have Stonerboy but naturally that was taken the auto suggestion was number one Stonerboy771 it later became 779 because I made a mistake considering I left YouTube on an auto log in. Ever since in online games forums ect. Stonerboy779 it has been with YouTube still 771.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I was trying to come up with a screen name and I flipped open the dictionary one day and saw flareback. I've used it ever since. I don't think I've ever had the name be taken when I've tried to use it.

I used to have a username of Mercury. And all the time when i died, my friends/guildies or whatever, would say: "Mercury Down!" We'd all have a laugh and i typically got killed on purpose alot. So much fun!

One day Mercury was taken, and i decided to just go with MercuryDown as my username. Then i decided to put a little twist on it and go with Doun instead of down. Thusly... I am now MercuryDoun!

I would say that's a pretty good name to just have picked at random. :D
