How did you came up with your username?

#1 Post by coolusername » 26 Oct 2020 17:09

Always wondered how people make up a username!
Some have like the weirdest name, and i thought there must be an interesting story behind that...
Iam terrible at making up names for me, obviously :lol:

So my name is set up from "JU" which stand for my first name Julian, the last part "seeTV" is more like a sentence together with the "JU" as it pronounced as "you" and therefore says "you see TV" Well no idea how I came up with this when I created it :lol:

I’m using this nickname since 2002 and it started on an IRC channel were we knew each other pretty well. I didn’t used to talk too much but I always checked the conversations and sometimes join then out of the blue, so they used to say that I’m always watching. Back then that junk show Big Brother was running in Romania, so the next step was obvious, but I found it horrible lame until I remember that Winston Churchill quote “ I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” and that was it.
I have approximate knowledge of many things

Space Night - I have Space in my trailer, i move by Night

or it could be the fact that I enjoyed watching a certain program on Bayern3 TV which gave views of earth from space called imaginatively enough "space night"

I started using mine after I was in a Jeep accident was ejected and I broke my back, neck, crushed by chest , collapsed my lungs, etc. People I knew afterwards would always ask what happend to me. I would explain it to them and they would say I was all busted up. Side note I'm able to walk and do everyday things just have some extra metal and scars.
