My name has a pretty dull background. I was on some aeronautics course last summer and we were using a nasa program called foilsim, the dumb computer teacher called Jenny called it foilism which gave us a reason to go the crappy course everyday. We nicknmed her jenny foilism and had the best week I can remember. HUDD can vouch for the story as he was there. I think Jenny foilism got the sack for drinking too much coffee, figures.

What's in a name

on Thursday, June, 26, 2003 9:51 AM
Carnivorax was Joke name I came up with when a friend
of mine (Who passed away a long time ago.) got a new kitten who was a terror and he couldn't think of a name for it. So's I jokingly popped off with "well you could call her
'Muffin' or if that fails you could call her something friendly
like 'Carnivorax' ". Said cat was named Muffin.

So I kept the other name and used in a TF Rpg for a while
and just got used to it.

The way back origins of the word come from the old "What The?!!" parody comic by Marvel. In an issue they had a New Mutants spoof and during the story they found a dog, a normal dog. And during the bickering as to what to name it, one of the names one of the teeners in the group shouted was "Carnivorax". I always found the word amusing and painfully over the top, yet still menacing.

Mine's a play on words on the name of one of that characters from Kagaku Ninja Tai Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets/G-Force). The character is called Mimizuku no Ryu (Ryu the Horned Owl - Tiny in BotP) and so, as my name is Lewis, I adapted the name to fit

So...does that mean if the kitten had been named Carnivorax, that we'd be calling you Muffin right now?

My name originated from when I first saw Tron. What first drew me to Tron was the lightcycles as they were soo cool, I always used to think what it would be like to race one, hence the name Speeder!!!!!

Rincewind thought about this and then, with an air of finality, started to take off his last sock.
"No half-bricks," he said to no-one in particular. "Have to use sand?"
"You're going to attack them with a sockful of sand?"
"No, I'm going to run away from them. The sockful of sand is for when they follow.

With an ASCII like that Dear, you can call me "Cupcake".
