How did you choose your on-line name and why?

My name, BumbleBeeBoogie, comes from an old urban legend that bumblebees are aerodynamically incapable of flying. Based on weight ratios to wing power and wind resistance, the bumblebee should be incapable of flight. Yet, the theory says, the bumblebee doesn’t know that, so it flies anyway.

My friends told me I was a person who, when a barrier blocked me from achieving my goal, I would just find a way around it and complete my goal. So I became BumbleBeeBoogie.

"George" is my real name, "Egroeg", spelled backwards.

i think it was izzie that came up with the didge pronunciation

@George,
Look what I found on google.

Egroeg Saculedit
From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.
The subject of this article appeared in the New Republic era.
Egroeg Sacul

"Departing Endor passenger Sacul, Mister Egroeg Sacul... please see the Star Tours agent at gate number three."
―Star Tours public address announcer[src]

Egroeg Sacul was a customer of the Star Tours travel agency. He was asked to see a Star Tours agent at gate number three before departing on a trip to Endor.

Behind the scenes

This briefly mentioned character is, like Jorg Sacul, a Tuckerization of the name of Star Wars creator George Lucas.

It is possible that some blood relation can be speculated, judging from their last name.

So what you're saying is that we're both elitist snobs?

BBB, I used to have a different online name. I got tired of people assuming I was a man. Decided to go with my actual name.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
In 1995, I started attending Framingham State College. In November of 1995, I had my first taste of the internet. Beckoned by the call of the the Click and Clack brothers of Car Talk.

With this first taste of cyberlife I decided to get an original email address that didn't encompass the annoying and klutzy set of numbers that followed the obvious and trite user names that were snatched up so quickly in the beginning of the internet age: cutegirl123214535, Batmanfan359593205, etc....

One of my first main history classes was my history of Russia class with Professor Nicholas Racheotes. In fact, I had him for two classes that semester.

A world history survey class which was the prerequisite to the Russian history class.

Needless to say, he was/is my favorite teacher I have ever had. So I went online looking for some kind of Russianesque user name.

Tsar + Stepan (Russified version of Stephen) and there is my ironic internet username. I have yet to find another Tsarstepan on the entire world wide web.

@tsarstepan,
Yeah, but I wanted my real name to be anonymous, in that event. I have since adopted the pseudonym, Mark Twain.
