I've no doubt someone has started a thread like this before (I may have a seizure if I find out there hasn't), but meh.

So, like the title says, what deep, dark, corners of your mind did your nickname come up out of?
As for myself, I think Kamikaze fits my style of flying quite nicely. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif For those of you not in the know, 'Divine Wind' is basically what 'Kamikaze' translates to.
Elsewhere, though, I'm known as Sky Captain (which obviously was not derived from my amazing flying skills)

When I started flying online I was at first rather concerned about letting anyone know of my gender, that coming from other online experiences. My first time "flying" online was in the Red Baron community, and to help safeguard I thought up a handle.

Up to that point after meeting my husband one of the things I did most and really enjoyed was Offshore Fishing for "Billfish" which include all forms of Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish & Spearfish. They were fast, powerful, outstnding predators hanging off then suddenly swooping in and slashing through their prey to stun them, then would go back and finish off the wounded. That's how I flew offline damaging an entire flight of planes then when safe, finishing them off at my leisure if needed.

So I selected the nick yet in all fairness soon found the RB community for the most part very respectful of one another and to me. Though I have often considered changing my nick to my r/l nickname of K2, or K2-Kelly, it simply stuck. It's what I'm known by since late 98 or 99 (can't recall too old)...So, guess I'll keep it.

S! Good idea for a post. Better than "Wheres my patch, add on, and my favorite plane?"

Well, My nick name comes from the the smallest North American bird of prey. The American Kestrel. The Blue is because the male has Slate blue wings. So hence BlueKestral its the way friends pronounce Kestrel when I was growing up.

Ages ago my elementary school librarian would regale us with tales of growing up in the Great Depression. My favorite stories concerned an often accident-prone barnstormer who made annual visits to her hometown offering rides in his Jenny to anyone with a few dollars, a good meal, or somewhere to sleep (and occasionally, lacking any of the above, for free). Crash Moses...what a guy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Don't know if he actually existed but her colorful stories sure made it seem so.

My avatar is the beloved Ernest P. Worrel (RIP Dude...the kids say hi).
If someone ever made a movie of Crash Moses's life Jim Varney woulda been my first choice as lead...no...seriously...why is everybody giggling? Stop it!

But I thought leitmotive was a combination of German and French indicating a central theme in a story (or music or something like that...brain cells aren't as young as they used to be...)

08-28-2006, 11:17 PM
When I joined my first squadron, PBNA, they asked me what my nick was. At the time I was posting under the moniker "rexcarrs" a twist on my RL job, Safety Supervisor for a School Bus contractor. I wanted to use "Vlad The Impaler" but it was taken for the forums, although my initial skin uploads on il2skins and my first foray into il2Air Racing I used that nick. So for PBNA I settled on "Beebop". I figured a young, brash American pilot might listen to jazz, especially the new form, bebop. As a joke, some of his squadmates would nickname him Beebop and in so doing, put the nick under his cockpit, misspelling it. And, like all such things, it would stick. I changed my name in il2Air Racing and chose the number "54" as it represented a common jazz time signature, 5/4. (think Dave Brubeck's "Take Five").
Now as for the script under my username, "King of the Arthur!"....well that another story for another thread.

Hence a flying as# for an avatar.

I use it because my dog of 14 + yr. was named Esel(due to her tendency to avoid 'control'-I picked that dog out as mine when she was 12 hr. old,then when her health became so bad-I literally held the dog when the vet delivered the intravenous coup de grace.

I started online as "Notch_Johnson" (I'm a big "Son of the beach" fan-which should give some insight as to my mentality!!!). I then went to "Lafya_Bolloxsov" (a play on the English expression "Laugh Your Bollocks Off"-again with the insight!) but playing online shooters such as Delta Force 1 and LandWarrior I thought it took people to long to type my name if they were trying to warn me of a threat so I wanted a name that was both humourous and quick to type. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

So keeping with the play-on-words theme I experimented with "Bo_?" being influenced by Beau Geste or even Beau Peep.Being a person who likes to maximise the conservation of energy ("Lazy? I'm like a rug on valium!")the name "Bo_Nidle" came from the expression "Bone idle"-meaning someone who is lazy. I don't know if that expression is unique to Britain or not?

As a result it allowed people to save time in the often futile pursuit of giving me a team warning to allow me time to defend myself-i.e."Bo behind you....never mind" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I needed a WWII aircraft name that wasn`t the typical `spitfire` or `hurricane`, so I got my aircraft book, flipped the sleeves and settled on `Seafire`. then I wanted a mark of Seafire that didn`t actually exist, so I made up the `LIV` to go on the end.

I could cook up a more exciting version of how my name came about, but then i`d be lying.

Some of these contain some "adult" material so proceed with caution.

This is a tale of me and 3 of my fellow fighter jocks and some of our exploits as young hot-headed pilots at UPT in Mississippi and how I got my callsign. You've been warned...


OK, so me, Krusty, Beeno, and Fucarwee are almost through UPT. We know we are getting fighters so a lot of pressure is off. We head out to do what fighter pilots do when they have good news--we go get drunk and try to woo women. Well, they do because they are single. I already have the ball and chain at this point. Anyhow, we head down a dive of a watering hole and proceed to get plastered. I take it easy because I'm supposed to be the designated driver.

Now, I'm not sure why, but at some point we decided it would be fun to go outside this establishment and have a boxing match. To this day I can't remember who thought it was a good idea but we did it anyway. Well, four drunk fighting isn't very pretty. I ended up with one helluva a shiner. By the time we finished is was after 0200 and we went back in for a nightcap. Right after we went back in these two women walk in. I use the term "women" loosely. I mean, there is ugly, butt ugly, coyote ugly and then somewhere way down the line are the really ugly people that spawned these she-demons.

Well, Krusty, not being the choosy sort picks up and heads out, ignoring my speech about needing to be on base by 0800 tomorrow. Beeno hits on the other one and they head out together. Fucarwee is slumped over in his chair and I am sobered up by this point but blind in one eye since it is swollen shut.

I pour Fucarwee into the passenger seat and I start driving back to base. Well the eye is hurting bad so I am pressing on it with my left hand and trying to stay on the road. After about 20 minutes Fucarwee wakes up and says his usual, "Where the f*** are we?" (hence his callsign). See, he earned this callsign because for being one great pilot the man couldn't navigate worth a damn. He was forever coming over the radio asking "Where the f*** are we?". You would look over at his AC and see him fiddling with his kneeboard and sectionals trying to find landmarks...

Anyhow, we get back to base safely and I crash only to wake up 45 minutes late for class. Fucarwee is sleeping on my floor. We scramble for the classroom, but we are met by the Major outside the door. He orders us to his office pronto.

So, we are standing in the Major's office and he is yelling questions at us about where we were last night and where the hell was Krusty and Beeno. About this time Krusty walks in....still wearing the same clothes only now he is even drunker.

The Major is still yelling at us as Krusty is trying to tell the story of what happened last night. Now imagine a really irate Major yelling at me and behind him is one looped Lt tapping his shoulder and saying this story.

"Major, major, lisssen up. Last night I picked up this cow...really big woman and went back to her trailer. Well, we was doing it and I was behind her, you know...hey, Major you lissenin'...OK, I was doin' it from behind when her dog comes up behind me and licks me right on the butt. It was wild, I blew it right then and there. It was the best I ever had."

It took about 10 seconds for Krusty's words to sink into the Major's brain. He just stopped and stared at Krusty in total disbelief. "YOU....DID....WHA!?"

Just then the Major's admin chimed in on the speaker phone and said the Major had an urgent call. "Put them on!", he yelled at the 702. Bear in mind Fucarwee and I are still at attention or at least the best we can muster.

"Hey, Major...this is Beeno." The Major yells, "Beeno!, where the hell are you?"

"Well, Major, see its like this. I don't know. I'm in some trailer park somewhere in Mississippi with a girl who's only got one clean nipple and I'm looking for a ride."

The Major just sank down to his seat and cradled his head in his hands. A few choice words about us getting out and nevering seeing him again was all we heard. He said if we so much as whispered a word of this to anybody or even dropped a pencil in class we would never fly in his Air Force. He said our story was going to be that we got drunk and in a fight (that was true) and that because of my martial arts training I had beaten up the other three (not true as I was the only one sporting a shiner.) The other guys started calling me "Sensei" because I supposedly "taught" the other guys a lesson.

Beeno got back that afternoon. I don't know how they found him. He didn't remember anything about the previous night or the morning. His first memory was waking up in the cab on the way back to base. Helluva a ride since I had to loan him the $125 cab fair.

Fucarwee ended up marrying some local girl. Next story will be about how she ended up being a licensed prostitute...

When I first played 'X-Wing' in my 286 I had to put a name to my pilot. I tried to choose something to fit with the Star Wars stuff, and I remembered that 'Dux' was the title given to late Roman and Visigoth generals, and also to the Doge of Venice. My true name has a similar origin and meaning. So I took 'Dux' because of that, and 'Corvan' because... it sounded cool.

Once upon a time (well, actually at RAF Wethersfield during the early fifties), a young Airman First Class air traffic controller had Day shift on the Sunday afternoon his young bride chose to give birth to their first born in nearby Braintree and Bocking.

Summoned down from the tower for a phone call from the hospital in the Base Ops building, he found himself unable to hear whether he was the father of a boy or a girl, due to a bunch of people conversing loudly in the lobby. Naturally, he bellowed at them to shut the hell up so he could hear his phone call.

Just after getting the good news, he found himself staring up at a trio of angry young pilots in flight suits, led by a tall, particularly stormy looking full colonel barely into his thirties.

"It's a boy!" the young Airman First blurted out, fumbling at his breast pocket. "Cigars, gentlemen?"

Approximately fifteen years later, as I showed my Dad (now a crusty Master Sergeant) a copy of 1000 Destroyed: The Life and Times of the 4th Fighter Group in WW2, he identified Don Blakeslee from the picture section as the young colonel who lit up the first cigar celebrating my birth.

Blakeslee's callsign was, appropriately for the CO of the first 8th AF group to convert to the Mustang, Horseback.

Naturally, I stole it.

cheers

Saw a guys name in Battlefields that sounded like "shoot you up the arse" with a German twang.Thought this amusing = Schutze.....
Think it means"Protection" in German.

Sensei, great story. Viper, you need to expand your movie list. Top Gun went from my "Action" shelf to "Comedy" pretty fast after getting to UPT. Kind of like "Hot Shots!", except that that was meant to be funny, though "Viper" is a way better callsign than "Dead Meat".

I got Blotto for a callsign at my first operational squadron at Misawa. PACAF named their new guys with a naming committee (USAFE used the much more lame method of voting in the Doofer book.) The naming committee consisted of all Mission Ready fighter pilots in the squadron, along with a large amount of alcohol. The committee told stories of the new guy's gross buffoonery during MQT, and the best story (or loudest proponent) got the nod for the winning callsign nomination. The new guy then got called in, and the committee yelled his new callsign while he chugged from a bottle of hard liquor (usually with a dead animal in it.) When it came time for my turn in front of the naming committee, they handed me the bottle (with a gecko in it), and it was then that I told them I don't drink (we weren't privy to the details of the "ceremony" beforehand.) They quickly produced a bottle of tonic water to substitute, and named me "Norm" (because I'd taxied with the INS in "Norm", or alignment mode... twice!) Nothing against the Cheers crew, but I was hoping for better. According to the "rules" of the committee, I could bribe them with a case of beer in order to get another crack at being named. On my second pass, they handed be the tonic water to swig again, and yelled "BLOTTO!!!", while throwing (mostly) empty beer cans at me. The humorous irony is only slightly greater when actually in the presence of forty drunk fighter pilots calling the only sober guy in the room Blotto. Seeing how the night was going, and realizing another bribe would likely get me something unintelligible, I accepted Blotto, and have been Blotto ever since (so to speak.) When I later got "on-line" (originally with AOL), I found "blotto" already taken, so added my initials.

One night back in the good ole days of CFS2 I was watching a rerun of the Muppet Show. There I found a character with pretty much the same flying style as myself; almost no control, no idea, totally lost, and letting gravity do the majority of the work!

Couldn't think of a clever or humorous name when joining this, my first, internet forum, so for reasons unknown even to me I named myself after a tin of Humbrol model paint. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

My movie list is quite extensive, but I've always had, and probably always will have, a certain affection for Topgun. It's not clever, it's not technically accurate in so many ways, on so many levels. But it's got some wonderful footage of real fast jets in it (much better than CGI!). And when I first watched it, at a rather tender age, that was more than enough. Oh to be young again...

About twelve years ago when I discovered the internet, I was an America Online subscriber. Due to reasons I won't bore you with, I found an Indonesian chatroom. I am from Oklahoma, but learned through the chat room to speak a kind of Indonesian street slang. In Bahasa Indonesia(the "offical" language there), 'Mojok' literally means "to be sitting there doing nothing".

What it meant in the chatroom/slang sense was someone who was not talking in the room, but instead IMing with people. Which is what I did all the time. It became my primary AOL logon and has continued since I left that piece of sh1t ISP.

Every message board I have ever posted on I have used this same name. Probably not a good idea, but I have continued to do so.

I'm 7'5" tall, green and have bolts sticking out of my neck... so I guess the name kinda stuck.

I fly online as RACFrankenstein, my old RB3D callsign. I work in the film industry in props (Set Decorator/On Set Props and such) and I'm constantly asked to come up with creative ways to make things happen (popping toast on cue, hanging curtains where there's no wall, spinning a pop tart on a table and having it stop on cue... and other more interesting things). One day I was asked to come up with a way to close a fake elevator door on cue so it would hit the actor as he walked in. I was set up behind the set with the rope and pully rig the grips had set up for me, the problem was I couldn't see the door or the actor. I came up with a plan; I used a laser pointer, 2 mirrors and a piece of foamcore to set up a "tripline" that I could see. The laser pointer cut across the door from the inside, reflected off the mirrors and I could see the spot on the foamcore. When the dot dissapeared I knew the actor was in the doorway and I closed the door. It worked perfectly and we got the shot pretty much on the first take. The AD was impressed with my "Frankenstein'd" rig and the name stuck.
