Also due to a lack of imagination, mine originated with my first name and telephone area code.  The numbers just came about when I attempted to create an account someplace and it kept telling me the account already existed......for about any name I tried to use.  It finally started suggesting name with random numbers so that gave me the idea of the Area Code.  Actually I've now seen the exact name on other sites I've never frequented so I may need to start something else for new sites.

Whenever I used a CB radio in a personal vehicle or commercial vehicle I would use the handle 'Road Hazard'. 

Fortunately, 'Safety First' has always been the motto I live by, especially when I'm being observed!  Not a serious bike accident since 1973, commercial vehicle accident in 1990 and automobile accident in 2011.  In each instance where an injury was involved I was the only person injured, thank goodness.

As a kiwi living in Aberdeen, playing rugby and working on the Nth Sea rigs it was often remarked that coming from NZ I must have had several close relationships with sheep. This was pretty rich coming from N.E Scottish folk.... Even when I lied  :164: and said I hadn't it wouldn't stop so for an after-match function I took a rather attractive inflatable sheep called Baabara and some wag christened me Pete the sheep......

Mine's boring, as my surname is Wilkinson, and while going through school, I was just known as Wilko  :150:
