About

What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

I like comic sans.

Once upon a time, gmail required an invite from a current account holder to sign up. The invites were a much sought after digital currency. Someone on kuro5hin posted their 5 invite links in a free-for-all. I didn't have enough time to think up a clever name, so I picked k5.user and snagged a gmail account.

askmefi questions to ask:
squirrels and power lines/tripping breakers
step past caveman chemistry but before NMR type science (eg how did they liquify gasses, how "see" smaller and smaller molecules ?)
Crosby spearing the goalie at 2nd period intermission (playoffs)
vent bathroom fan to ridge vent vs soffit
