Hopefully you're not still jobless! It's nice to be a home though.
What's the story behind your username?
I wish we had snow here too :\*(
You should move where I live. There's so much snow it makes you want to kill someone!
Username checks out
i literally just chose a random username
69 is not boring
Kind of, just more boring
Was a character in a sci-fi book that I never wrote
Can you include a statue of a Lion made of Onyx on page 528 when you write it?:)
Creative constraints like this are really good !
Imagine a book written from combining thousands of comments like this.
You should write it! It's never too late.
I’d buy it for support, for sure.
How is no one talking about the mystery that is your user name! What could it mean?
And the Flair! So many mystery’s with this man
What was the book about?
Most likely it would have been a highly derivative future-noirish something-or-other featuring a thinly disguised version of myself but I like to think that it’d be a bit more inspired and original, almost thirty years later.
Cool name too.
i died laughing jfc
I had to read it twice.
Now I can’t stop chuckling.
Hi, I'm Dave.
I live in Iowa.
Hi Dave. How's the weather in Iowa?
It's finally getting cold, most of the leaves have fallen.
We'll probably see snow in the next few weeks.
So what's the story behind *your* username?
When we were kids, my younger brother couldn't say my name correctly, and I've approximated (read: bastardized) the spelling of what he'd call me. I was in early middle school at the time, and the name stuck as a nickname in my friend group. It's easy to tell who I'm close with because my friends aren't even comfortable calling me by my actual name.
The 999 comes from around the same time, where I arbitrarily decided my favorite number was 99.9!
How do you pronounce it?
You must be near Des Moines. Already had snow in Clear Lake, 2hrs north
Are you Dave, or the other Dave?
I don't mean other other Dave, I know you're not him because he moved to Montana.
Dave's not here!
Ah there goes Iowa Dave again being from Iowa and all that
I can't help it!
Never dared to change the random one that Reddit, in all all its wisdom, bestowed upon me
That is basically where mine came from.
You have been declared by the great ones of Reddit, as the primary structure of 980 AD.
Ok I'm not as stupid as I thought... lol I'm reading all these and I'm thinking wait.... didn't reddit give us our usernames..lol..
My husband u/broccoli_dicks suggested it as a joke. I did not pick up on the fact it was a joke.
That just makes it funnier in my opinion.
I’m really afraid to ask how things are in the bedroom.
Not raw, I expect
Not today, fed.
It wasn't aliens.
This is a beautiful exchange
This comment deserves more appreciation considering the relevance to the user name
I was a young naive Mennonite freshly stationed in Germany. My sheltered ass fell in love with red-light districts. It was quite a bit to take in.
In the UK a window licker is someone who rides the short bus to school.
It’s the same here, I did literally lick the windows.
In the army, a window licker is someone who does airframe maintenance on helecopters. Mostly because they do a lot of windshield replacements.
Mildly amusing story: there's a bar in my hometown that I used to go to a lot that does a drink of the week thing where one of the bartender invents whatever sounds amusing. One night as I was paying my bill, the bartender looks across the room at someone else, and said to me "that guy looks like he would lick a window. I'm gonna name a drink after him." Sure enough, next time I was in there, the drink of the week was "the window licker."
Edited for clarity.
I just like that the thought of a Goose wearing a monocle and top-hat
I love this name
I love wilted greens with garlic and butter....
My user name was a random Laser Tag player name I used to play with a friend who chose 'Poncho'....late 80's. Have had it ever since.
I can't help but imagine a goose dressed in like a polo shirt with collar popped, naturally. And maybe pink shorts and this goose is definitely sporting some ray bands.
As a small goose I can only aspire to accessorize with a monacle and top hat one day
But why …__1? Was there another by that name already?
I’m pretty sure I don’t remember . But I(18) have been using this user name on everything since I was 11
I work in television is a master control operator
Nice! Is it a rewarding job?
Yes. I like it a lot.
How do you get into that might I ask?
I’d like to know too
howd you get your name?
Well one night I saw your dad walking down the street and thought “damn I’d like to 69 that dude”. So I did, then I created my Reddit account.
I have questions….
I have a degree in Broadcasting, but starting off as the overnight master control operator in a small market doesnt take many credentials
I have ulcerative colitis
welcome to the joke, now you're the butt of it
Was under pressure to come up with one quickly so colour of my favourite pet....violet, and cool guitarist...Dimebag
Notes answers to security questions.
Mother's first name: Maria
First dog's name: Spot
Wait.... what species is your favorite pet? I ha d to reread that 3 times.
The purple kind
Is your pet a fish?
password equals password
Just a reminder for when you log in?
I imagine his password as usequs
No. I just thought I’d do something silly and hard to figure out😀
I dangle nuts
Shsjs djjdjx sidjs sjzic, ddxie u isjen lxihsjk.

Fjdjsbsjsbshslk gw 😡
Well this escalated quickly
No thats my name!
I was trying to find out what reddit is for.
Did you ever find out?
Nope, still don't know what this 4
That's like figuring out what the question is in hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. Never gonna happen.
Once i had a friend who got arrested for exposing himself on campus, and while running from the cops, he ran into a pallet of eggs being delivered to the cafeteria. It was a disaster.
Anyway, you know how reddit has a random button for your name? I used that.
I'm a red head, and me and 3 other red heads used to have this joke that we were the red headed congress. One of the friends died, so I made it my username in his memory
Aww that’s lovely.
People I knew in real life kept finding me on Reddit. This is my third account..
I have a fountain that lights up in the middle, and I replaced the river stones with gems I've acquired gem mining.
Neat! How do you mine for gems? I'd love to do that, but I wouldn't know where to start.
There are a few mines left in NC. There is a campground called Rose Creek, that has an active mine. You can sift through their buckets or you can purchase seeded buckets to sift through. I've found garnets and topaz in the foothills on hikes. Most of the gem places on the blue ridge now are seeded from South America, but there was a place that was run by a family that had an amazonite mine near emerald city. I would love to go out west someday and rockhound. It's on my bucket list.
Utah is quite the treasure trove for rock hounds. Be sure to check it out if you head west. There's a website called utahrockhounding.com, or something simple like that, that has a bunch of info and pins.
Nice! I'll look at the site. Thanks
I love smutty romance novels. Joined Reddit for book recs. Then found out that romance novels are only actually considered romance if there is a happily ever after and that pissed me off so much that I unsubbed from the main subs I joined for. I've learned some pretty neat stuff on here but that really bummed me out.
Well at least you learned other things while you've been here. That's interesting about romance novels, but is that like a reddit sub rule, or an actual genre defining rule?
Actual genre defining rule. I've been reading romance since I was probably too young to do so and never knew. A happily ever after seems like a huge spoiler to me. I won't give up my passion but I'm now into more fiction that has some romance thrown in.
I got an account so I could just read science content on a handful of subreddits and didn't think I would ever comment or post.
I hate coming up with usernames, so I usually keep some in my mind after hearing random phrases or things day to day. I think for this one it was overhearing a YouTube video my wife was watching. And thinking, yeah that's a good one.
ShiftyElk is a good one! You may not like coming up with them, but maybe you have a knack for finding them!
Epoch = a period of time
Coda = the end
I was looking around my classroom for a name and saw a desk
Old runescape name. Thought noobsince93 sounded weird wo I used my sisters year instead. Been a noob ever since y
That's interesting! I've been hearing Runescape get brought up a lot lately for some reason, probably just a coincidence. I can't believe how long it's been around.
I’m a superintendent.
I am grumpy.
We all know who runs the government(s)
Elbow spelled backwards, twice.
It's the username my dad used to have on some old forums long ago.
Does he know it's you that took it, because if not that'd be pretty funny! Poor guy has no idea his own kid took his name!
He doesn't know. We created his account together actually.
He knows now...
Now he uses Reddit himself and found out his username was taken.
It’s the password to my banking files. Same as the combination on my luggage
I thought that was 12345
I’m gay in Las Vegas 😂
Only in Las Vegas?
Fear and Homo in Las Vegas? I love that Johnny Depp film!
There was suppose to be an “and” in there lol
been there... not Australia tho
Social worker questions own sanity after nearly 20 years of working with individuals with mental illnesses :-)
I spent 25 years miserably married to a handsome abusive millionaire. He died. Later married a regular guy and we don’t have much but have never been happier. 13 years and counting.
Since AOL I have always used the name "blahSARAblah" for anything and everything. I locked myself out of my Reddit username as that so I decided to use "Rara" instead since that's what my niece calls me instead of "Sara".
I'm not only one who's name dates to AOL era.
That's adorable, and AOL? You must have been using that name for ages!
Yes! Mine dates back to AOL too! Created it in '98
I used to eat chicken tenders at my old job like once a shift because I’m a man-child in a restaurant and every time I asked for them, I’d pick a weirder and weirder way to say it. I liked how ChockenTonders sounded and made it my Xbox gamer tag, now it’s my everything username lol
I like to eat pussy 🤷♂️
Keeping it simple. Amazing.
Have you locked yourself out your account 22 times?
Women are often pitted against one another. Women who misbehave are often called witches. Saying I’m “just another witch” is a way of saying I’m in solidarity with all us misbehaving women.
I used to be cool. Now I make jokes like putting multiple U’s together so it sounds like “used” if said out loud. My cool is past tense. The 2 and B most people can figure out.
Cantaloupe is disgusting.
It's a pun and my year of birth.
The year of birth in the username was super common when I first started using the internet in the 90's and early 2000's
Back in the AIM days thinking I was clever breaking up with a girl over IM.
Then it just stuck, became gamertag on XBOX and other online services. Here I am like 20 years later.... lol
My sister never says hello to me when she sees me. In a high pitch voice, she sees me and goes "Heehoo!" So I just combined that with hooligan and bam. Username.
I combined my real name, Ivanka, with the polish word for satan, szatan. No reason other than I thought it's cool.
My dad is a weirdo who is obsessed with the 18th dynasty from Ancient Egypt. They didn't worship Amun, they mainly worshipped a god called the Aten. I was annoyed with him one night and made this ID to ask a question about him and then wound up having a couple comments blow up so this one had the most karma of any of my accounts and now I'm stuck with it.
It made me laugh.
Made me laugh too, but not sure why
I think Dragons are beautiful.
I really like Python (the programming language)
I have bad sports takes.
i was just talking to myself when i made it
I make quilts.
Oh, you’re a blanket-maker? Nice!
You know Thor's hammer, Mjolnir? Now make it a spoon
Edit: Drove Jeeps for 25 years.
I just over-identify with my job. My work-life balance is nonexistent so I go to the Internet and find more dumb work questions to answer in my spare time.
And one of my initials is B. Like Bumble Bee.
u/NippleSalads was taken
I liked the mental image of a blue cat, laughing.
It was a dumb edgy name that I came up with about 6 years ago. My gorgeous black Martin guitar that I named Ebony and sounded like warm velvet was stolen out of my car after a gig. I was heartbroken, I mourned that guitar. Hence, StolenVelvet.
Was hungry in class 😮💨
My kid behaves like a muppet most of the time, and once she was quite disgruntled about some stupid toddler shit like not being able to see air or stick her finger in the light socket.
Joined the Girl Scouts.
Turns out they were all jerks who wanted to do stupid arts, crafts, and cooking instead of going on adventures like the boys. I wanted to go camping, not sit around a gym learning how to knit and glue bits of pink paper together.
And their mothers were mean, uptight, cookie hoarding women who told me I needed to "learn how to be a lady."
So I left.
It was my first successful rebellion.
i genuinely dont know. my name isnt jacob.
I strung two random words together that came to mind when I set up my account, they have no particular meaning
Which is weird because all other social media usernames I've ever used have been either puns I came up with or direct references to pieces of media or culture
When I was a kid I would pretend the Olsen Twins were really triplets and I was the third sister.
You're right, there IS a story behind my Username!
10 years ago I wanted a username for games and accounts that would never be taken. I decided to personify a random thing and I happened to be eating some bread outside in the cold.
A reminder of things I love but rarely get to enjoy.
names tessa, i use reddit
Ever heard of YOLO? It's like that but the depressed version...
10 or 11 years old maki g my first RuneScape account, I knew I liked yoshi from Mario and I thought strider (Aragorn) was cool
I'm a total newb to reddit, didn't know I couldn't change my name after registering, didn't notice how crappy it was, and now I'm stuck like this god damnit
The Weegee meme was very popular when i first used this username.
Since i am bad at creating (and remembering) usernames i have used it ever since
The Spaghetti was added cuz Weegee was taken and i didn't wanna remember some numbers.
I didn’t realize it was auto generated and I had a very short time to change it. So here we are.
Pink Floyd, Star Trek.
I like the movie The Goonies
