Good spot. TV/Movie/Literary Tropes... once you're aware of them you are never the same again... but they're soooo funny to spot... and read about.
Interestingly enough, I did have someone PM me and ask if I was a microbiologist...which I had to deny.
The profile pic is because when my little brother was younger (like, 5 to 7 years old), that clone trooper was his favourite Lego minifig, so he was always telling me about his crazy adventures etc. I grew kind of fond of him...with their oversized heads and vacant expressions, I've always thought Lego clone troopers rather...I don't know...cute?
Jupiter is my favorite planet and I would really like to see more missions sent out there to explore, especially its accompanying icy moons, like Europa. It's essentially a diverse mini-solar system within our own solar system. It's not even that far away, only half-a-billion miles.
It is an obscure astronomical term that aptly describes my passion for space exploration. Also, it isn't likely to already be taken whenever I sign up for something that requires a username.
Cause if I was a porn star, my name would be Skeet Cummings. I also am a fan of Skeets, Booster Gold's droid.
3/18/81 is my Birthday.
As the orign of the name became less and less relevant, I tried out a couple names other than Aanchir over the years on sites like deviantART, and while they're easier to pronounce (for the record, it's pronounced AHN-keer), I never really get to like them as much as Aanchir. This is the name people have come to know me by in the LEGO community, it's unique enough that there's generally no confusing who it identifies, and in some cases there's a certain amount of respect attached to it.
It's still a frequently used password & or username including ebay. 52 is my house number.
Then years ago a few of us used to play networked Red Alert, and I always preferred the Ukraine / Russian forces so I could use the tessla coils. I always thought that half the other side of the Iron Curtain used to have names ending in 'ski', hence Flecski.
Strangely, Ive never had a problem with anyone else using this name.
And I agree, its a great question
My avatar here obviously has no relation to my username. Castle was my favorite LEGO theme as a kid, and my favorite faction was the Black Falcons.
The PD part is simple - my first and last initials. The 66 is in tribute to the best hockey player to ever pull on skates - Mario Lemieux of the Pittsburgh Penguins who wore number 66.
If I can get it PD66 is my go to username online but if it is taken there may be variations on my name with the number 66 or I may throw in an 87 to include current phenom Sidney Crosby in the mix.
As an example, I managed to get PD66 on PSN as I bought PS3 on launch day but I have ended up as PD6687 on XBox Live as I was a bit late to the party on that one only getting an XBox when the lad wanted one for Christmas!
The team Lemieux played for - and now owns - is the inspiration for the avatar of an angry penguin - I use this online where possible as well.
Surprisingly with all this hockey love I am neither Canadian nor American - born and bred in Greater Manchester, England!
Bet you can't wait till he wants the Death Star!
since I now live in New Zealand (but Im from the UK)
