What made you choose your Gag user name that you have now?

It could be any reason. Sometimes when people pick user names it has meaning and sometimes it doesn't have any meaning at all.

My user name was picked because it sounded cool. And I am cool as the breeze if you met me in person. Lol, and it wasn't taken. I like to pick user names that are not already taken.

  • I don't like mine but it's my usual username for things. It's my name and some number of mine. I wanted to change mine but moderators can't change their names so it was a bad time for me to find out you could change them. :(

  • I'm a proud 90's kid, I have a huge obsession with my childhood which has cause me to hoard things from my younger years, plus I just love and miss that beautiful decade. Common sense is so common nowadays. Morals, values, integrity, compassion, understanding, etc. seem to be forgotten or left behind in the 90's. Creativity, individuality, and originality in art, music, tv, entertainment, society overall were at all-time highs back then before reality tv, talent-less celebrities, and abuse of technology (social networks cell phones, etc.) influenced the mass the wrong way.

    • Nice, the 90's were fun times. I think everything is going retro now. The 80's style came back, the 90's style came back. But it's different because even though stuff is retro we are living in different times now. But I iked how you broke it down and the pictures bring back memories. Fresh Prince is a funny show.

  • Lol, I picked my username because when I was in middle school, a couple of boys called me "Brunette Babe" lol, they would just refer to me as that. I thought it was annoying because these same boys went to my high school, and they were still calling me "Brunette Babe", and everyone thought it was cool or something, haha, so a lot of the high schoolers started calling me that. Then when I had to create usernames, it was just easy to remember lol. So I used this username because of that reason. It's easy to remember haha. However, I think I should be "Blondie" now, because I am more blonde than brunette now lol.

  • My username are two totally random dutch words. Spuit means spout as in spouting and kaas means cheese. It has a little bit of a dutch meaning behind it because the Netherlands is famous because of it's cheese and in the dutch language, people stick words together and that was something I had trouble with when I learned English . We got words like arbeidsongeschiktheidsverzekeringsformulier and it makes total sense for us, but in English all the words are loose from eachother. Kinda weird huh

I was over my friends house, and he went on my MySpace page and he said something like, "You need music on here, man". So, we go on this site that you need an account on, to be able to put music on my MySpace page, and we sat there for a minute thinking of a name, and he asked, "How about Dakota the Rota?" So I agreed, but then he started to call me Dakota the Rota around our friends and, it kinda became name they started to call me and in became my user name in just about everything.

  • I suffered with health probs for a very long time. I always believed in the phrase 'things get better' but after 9 stinking years, I started losing hope in that dream. I would sit in my bed and think "maybe things do not get better for me." Suicide would creep around the corner constantly, I thought about it so many times. It was a very alluring offer.

    One day I told myself, fuck all these suicidal thoughts. If mother nature wants to kill me, then do it. Until that actually happens, I'm gonna keep trying to make it or die trying.

I'm not sure how I feel about it though; I still like "Virulence" more.
