Wahoo: any of various American shrubs or small trees, as the winged elm, Ulmus alata, or a linden, Tilia heterophylla. Also, a large, swift mackerel, Acanthocybium solanderi, widespread in warm seas, of a steel blue to greenish blue above and silver below, often leaping from the water and occasionally schooling in great numbers: valued as a food and game fish.

Of course it's the Virginia Cavaliers which really makes the whole thing not make sense.

From Wiki.

Wahoos, or Hoos for short, is an unofficial nickname for sports teams of the University of Virginia, officially referred to as the Cavaliers.

Origins
The nickname is a back-formation from the school's yell, "wa-hoo-wa."

Official University of Virginia sports documents explain that Washington and Lee baseball fans first called University of Virginia players "a bunch of rowdy Wahoos," and used the "Wahoowa" yell as a form of derision during the in-state baseball rivalry in the 1890s, presumably after hearing them yell or sing "wa-hoo-wa." The term "Wahoos" caught on around the University and was commonly in use by the 1940s. "'Hoos" became the more accepted nickname throughout Grounds in student publications. In recent years, the Hoos nickname has become a nickname used by students and recent alumni of the University, and it is also commonly used in the media in reference to U.Va. sports teams.

A common explanation by students and alumni of the term's popularity is that it references the fish Acanthocybium solandri, purported to have the ability to drink up to twice its body weight daily.

Seyelback, aka Seyel, aka Sey, aka elfy for Rx

Well, I wanted a name that nobody had. So I made one up. This started when I was playing a role game called "Vampires: The Masquerade", initially was "Sey el Black" ("el" means "the", in Spanish), because I used to dress all in black all the year round. Then it merged to a single word, then it dropped the "l" because I liked "Back" to express that the character had "returned" from the other life. Also, I was planning to use the same name to play the "Lord of the Rings" role games, and I thought it related better to inmortal characters. Lol

Then in a Tolkien convention thing they wrote that name in elfic language in a certificate, and I thought it was pretty, and I decided not to change it. I started to use that name for every game I played. As it is a made up name, I never have problems to register it.

I can't think of a time when it hasn't been your favorite word, period. Except using 'rep' and 'ghey' in the same sentence.

LoL, nice one. Laughing

I was an art student and always called my friend Garibaldi because his name's Gary and he shaves his head, whenever we would meet I would say "Ey Garibaldi!" in an over the top Italian accent and he would reply "Mister Leonardo!" The crazy things you do when you're a student, eh? Laughing I started using it as a forum-name and put the 337 (My name upside down) whenever it had already been taken.
And you prefer orange ostrich feathers.

So your name is Lee and not Leo? Well damn.

Mine's pretty easy though confused constantly. Jon- my name's Jonathan. 1798- This was back when I first started an e-mail address for aol. I was 17 in 1998. It's stuck for the past 11 years (god I'm old). Of course people see 1798 and they think the year 1798, or they say 1978. But oh well.
I think 1979 for some reason which is really just a dyslexic translation of the real numbers. But I hear the song 1979 by the Smashing Pumpkins every time I see your name too.

Hoosalump, or Hoos for short, is an unofficial nickname for a gigantic creature found lurking in the forests of Sommerset. He is known to eat puppies and carry a laark.

Origins
The nickname is a back-formation from the yell, "waaaaH- da fluckin hoosalumps got me!" Often heard by unsuspecting victims.

Official University of Virginia documents explain that FoM fans first called laarking players "a bunch of rowdy Wahoos," and used the "Wahoowa" yell as a form of warning when ever one of these noobs was near, presumably after hearing them yell or sing "wa-hoo-wa... Noob inbound." The term "Wahoos" caught on around the creature and was commonly in use by the 1940s. "'Hoos" became the more accepted nickname throughout MyRes1 in posting publications. In recent years, the Hoos nickname has become a nickname used by laark noobs and COD snipers.

There I fixed all that nonsense up there.

What? We've had more dice rattlers around here this whole time and nobody said anything? Weak.
It is vitally important that you guys go put your funny stories from table top games in another thread.
Vital.

So, I guess you're curious about my name too? Alrighty then. Here you go. The secret behind my unusual moniker.
I am a blue monkey. What, more? Fine.
I decided to proudly represent my race in PSN and Forum name. Truth told, my fur is not Cobalt blue. It's actually a bit darker shade of blue. But in Halo I always chose the cobalt colored armor because it is teh awesome. Blends pretty well on a couple of maps.
And so I decided that Cobalt Monkey would be my name.



At least, that's the official story. *dun dun DUNNNNN*

I used the Halos' blue coloured armor. I never noticed it belended in with the maps. I seem to go with red,gold and grey. Should try it, it's awesome


Now to the topic

My other psn. Was just a random thing my dad said. It happened while i was eating dinner, while in a comp match. Anyway, my character was in a nice little hiding position. Then BAMM!. Someone killed me with the LAARK. Then when i got killed. My dad said " Ohh epicfail, HAHA. You got killed, AGAIN ". Then i proceded saying " Could i make a psn named epicfail? " And my dads' reply was Yes.

So that's how my second account was made.

Umm, no. I was being ironic. Most I've managed in R:FoM was a 12-streak and in R2 I think I got a 10. Don't worry, you and I will be fighting over the "Worst Player in [S!X]" title for some time to come.

A little aside: When I first met ETW we were both in training on Rfom and I remember he always used to wear the British desert loadout with the Ratchet and clank backpack and boots, probably the most standout visual combination you could have in the game.. I often felt that this was in some way responsible for his bad start into the world of online FPS. Laughing

BTW, my copy of Vampire Masquerade was on PC... Dice rattler? Moi? Pfffft! Evil or Very Mad
