How'd Ya Git Yer Username
« on: December 12, 2004, 08:05:20 am »
 ;D  :) ;D  We have a lot of new members so I thought I'd bump this up. I was wondering how everyone came by their username we have some very unique ones? I was tagged fast eddy many years ago when I was an commuter airline pilot. I prided myself on being on or ahead of schedule the US Air pilots that rode with us tagged me with it. When I started using the internet in the early 90's I tried fast eddy as a username but it wasn't available so it was shortened to fstedy and it just stuck  ;D :)  ;D

After we got our first Wood-Mizer some 10 years ago,  I bought a pair of bib overalls.  Mary was against it.  She even protested me wearing them.  But they were more comfortable to work in and had lots of pockets that came in handy when you were working on something with small tools and having to put nuts and bolts someplace where you could find them again.

Probably half the people that know me don’t even know I own a pair of bibs the other half has never see me unless I’m wearing them.  Kind of a two world thing.

Anyway,  she started calling me “Bibbyman” and that’s the story.

I believe it was in the 3rd or 4th grade and there was a couple other Bryan's in the class, and I liked how my papa went by is first initials, so it's been BW every since.  Heck, now there's a newscaster, pro football player and I think a pro basketball player using my name!  BWW

My wife babysits, when I come home from work I would say hiya to the children. One little girl started calling me hiya when she learned to talk. She still does after about 3 years.

I don't know why but my Granddad on Dad's side was assigned the name as a reverence to family history.  He gave it to his boy who turned out to be the one that made me and he assigned it to me.  Now I've tacked it onto my first-born.

There were a lot of nicknames I could have used but I had the chance of a lifetime.  I got envolved with the forum when there weren't many users and took advantage of the opportunity to use my real handle.   You can't do that just anywhere on the Net.  I feel pretty special to be me. ;D

To get technical it's "Dangerous Dan the Pyro Man". When I was seven, I got a new neighbor who had a big party every 4th of July. Him and his friends were kinda wild and crazy, chucking cherry bombs around and occasionally setting the roof of my fathers house on fire with a stray helicopter or roman candle.  :o So I had to keep up with them and by 10 years old I was mixing acetalene and oxygen in ballons for a nice "pop"!  ;D Its a miracle I still have all my fingers and my hearing!  ::) Be safe, DD
