I sold fire hose many years ago and one of my biggest clients was a company called Firerat. Everyone in my office called me Firerat for years.

 

When I came here, it seemed like a unique enough name so I went with it.

 

I told a longer version of that story in an older version of this thread and everyone started calling me hose for a while.

Very cool! You know you made everyone who gave you a 'like', look that up, lol. Except Mikey he knows what wavelengths of light measured in nanometers are.

Makes for a much nicer back story then mine, too ;)

I knew nothing of the range of wavelengths for visible light, but didn't have to look up anything to guess what was up.   But since you brought it up, Juth, I had to go find the median wavelength for my color, green.   From various sources, it's in the 510 to 520nm range.   All I have to say to 425nm is, "mine's bigger!"

Ahhh but wavelength is in inverse proportion to the energy of the photons. So mine has more energy per quantum.

What?  You must be high.  You have no idea of my amplitude!

Originally I went by pfosterbilly. I thought the silent "p" was well suited to the forum here.

A Fosterbilly is anyone of the fellas who grew up in the small and very rural area of Fosterxxxxx. A Hillbilly (without the hills) from Fosterxxxx

It wasnt long before I started receiving questions meant for the Professor. lol Little did I know he went by not only pf, but billy-you-know-who also.

Hip was kind enough to change it to foster for me:bow:

With my love for gardening, plants, lost or stray animals, and fungi, I felt it suited me better anyway.

foster

1. to promote the growth or development of; further; encourage: to foster new ideas.
2. to bring up, raise, or rear, as a foster child.
3. to care for or cherish.
4. to feed or nourish.

 

Sorry i just copy pasted my old version, im too old, high,and slow to rewrite it :P

While I was serving a sentence for psychedelics I read the electric Kool aid acid test and thought the buses name would work well for a handle on these omc's. Had I realized at the time I would dirty a name like this so bad, I may have went with another :)

When I first joined, I was in the middle of a "tragic-don't-give-a-shit-about-anything-anymore" psychological crisis.  I chose my username without thought (my own friggin' name) and even used an old picture of myself on my profile because I was more in a hurry to start asking the community here for guidance than I was to cover my ass.

 

I quickly got emails to change it to protect my anonymity.

 

Still, I think what difference does it make when I'm pretty much the only Darci I know who spells it like this, and it's not a name currently in fashion.

 

I worry a bit about being doxed now but I always carry and use my spidey-senses.
