    By handle, you mean username, or nickname, right?
    Mine is what is is, my real name. Quite simple :)

    mine is my name also (first name) and the B5 comes from a tv show named Babylon 5 somehow just grew into using it on it.

    Andres Guazzelli sounds like a tennis player name..can picture watching someone named that play on a match on tv.

    I got my name from starcraft. I was in a clan with my friends and neigbours called silent cripplers (sc for short). And our names had to be 4 letters starting with sc. So sc + ez = scez

    I like to write a lot so I had dubbed myself a racconteur but I accidently spelled it rinconteur. I didn't know that it was spelled wrong until someone told me, so Rincon is merely a misspelled word.

    Rincon is one of the best surf breaks on the CA coast, and is right on the border of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Its referred to as the Queen of the Coast.

    Here is a description and a little video of day with a good swell.

    And it means corner in Spanish, which is probably how they named the Queen of the Coast.

    Mine comes from an imaginary character from Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin would sometimes imagine he was a space commander flying through the universe on dangerous missions, only to be awakened by his teacher, mom, etc., as they tried to get him to do real world tasks he did not like. He always narrated his adventures, referring to himself as Spaceman Spiff.

    Bismark, I thought it was a reference to a city in the Dakotas....or the rhyming and vocal talents of Biz Markie?

    You say tom-ate-oh, I say tom-ah-to....Tomate-o, tomah-to....Ya-mate-oh, Ya-motto.

    Mine was from people started getting monkey pox from "handling" ground hogs or prairie dogs. I thought it was the weirdest thing I'd ever heard of to want to "handle" a ground hog, so I was all over the name, though hopefully never the disease.

    LOL. But my handle got nothing to do with cities or vegetables. A little history lesson here. Bismark - a famous battleship of the Third Reich that was sunk. Yamato - another famous (and sunken) battleship of Emperor Hirohito. WWII stuff.

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I registered for this site on a whim, and just typed anything. Check the keyboard, k,o,l, and b are close together. That is about as purposeful as it gets.
