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.

The User name ? Not very original, I thought of it in my high school physics class.

Why I like Metafilter [among many reasons]:
"jokes, stories and lessons over other kinds of dialogue — over small talk, questions, arguments, speculation, supportive hey-I-think-you're-awesome talk

I admire MetaFilter and felt like I grew up with it; began reading it as a high school senior or college freshman and then finally signing up for it while I was a college sophomore. I mostly lurk because I prefer to only comment on things which I'm knowledgeable about and it takes me a relatively long time to articulate my thoughts into written word, especially in long paragraphs.
