Normtrum....2 dogs, golden retrievers. Norman and Truman. I put Norman down about 8 years ago. Tru is sitting on my big chair right next to me, which is sure to piss my wife off when she walks in.




EDIT: My wife got pissed.

Acheron translates as the "river of woe" and it was believed to be a branch of the underworld river Styx over which in ancient Greek Mythology Charon ferried the newly dead souls across into Hades. The word is also occasionally used as a synedoche for Hades itself. Virgil mentions Acheron with the other infernal rivers in his description of the underworld in Book VI of the Aeneid. In VII, line 312 he gives to Aeneas the famous saying, flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo: 'If I cannot deflect the will of Heaven, I shall move Hell.' In Dante's Inferno the Acheron river forms the border of Hell.

The name was chosen by me because of what some friends always said about me when I played FPS games. They would say that fighting in a room against me was "like entering hell" and that I had a bloodlust in games because I would always have the highest kill count in most any game I played even if the objective was to capture a flag or something other than just killing. Another friend once told me "you make the lord worry" so I chose the name.

I lived in the UK for a long time and I used to ride a Yamaha Thunderace. Even though I am American living in Germany and sold the bike years ago, I kept it because that is what everyone knows me as.

gearcraft- one of my childhood dreams was to be an illustrator and make my own comic someday so i started by thinking of a cool name for a comic when i was in HS(supposedly a giant robot comic, lol to myself), i got half of the name from the game starcraft, the word 'gear' just sounded cool to me.
and ever since i have thought of that i used it as a username in gaming and forums.

I didn't have a name to think of when I was making my account as "Bimmer Guy" and other related choices were already taken. I'm dissapointed with my current username because it's easy to dismiss me as a fanboy with a quick glance at my name...I'm not really a loyalist...but I really do like Bimmers a lot.

Park2670. My name is Parker, and the boat my Father has owned since I was three was the 2670 Rouge. Very nice boat, and I LOVE Lake Powell. I have used this name on forums and email since I was 10. I think its around to stay.
