I used to chat a lot with ICQ, and there was this one guy from Australia, he always said "You've been smoking to many socks" or "Stop smoking socks" whenever I made some joke or said something that didn't make sense (Which was quite often since I was 14 and my English was not very good).
I don't remember how or when this whole socksmoking thing exactly started..

In any case, one time I replied with "No, I stopped smoking socks, I smoke carpets now".
I already used the nickname "Socksmoker" in a few places, but I liked the sound of Carpetsmoker better, and gradually replaced my previous nickname(s) with it...

So, this is it, I hope you guys will QUIT WHINING now...

The little brother (he was 2) from my first boyfriend couldn't speak my real name. So he said Maja to me. And because I like cartoons I use Biene_Maja. Maja is a little bee (Biene) in a german tv cartoon. I like this cartoon! Very Happy http://www.diebienemaja.de/

Soap MacTavish is the main d00d from CoD4. Ingame he murders around 4000 terrorists and russians. That's pretty badass.

spm1138 doesn't mean anything. It's just been my log-on for everything since the 90's.

Not as bad ass as his mustache, right? Anyway, welcome.


My nick has to do with the holy "Alien and(aka versus) Predator" Universe.

Psycho(psychedelic as the alien creature is surreal in its way of existence and psychology)morph(Xenomorph, the scientific classification of the alien creature, which basically says nothing as there is nothing to say about the alien creature surreal as it is). Actually it must be Psychemorph, but it doesn't sound as "bad ass" and people wouldn't get the higher philosophy of the matter.


By the way:

Soap MacTavish


so YOU are soap - I've been constantly wondering who "that guy" is, since he seemed "familiar".

Since almost everybody here already knows where my nicks(s) come from [Mk82HD "Snakeye" is a 500lbs dumb high-drag aircraft bomb in the unlikely case someone didn't know and actually is interested] I might want to comment on why I use the different names for forums and servers - since I usually find it strange when people use different nicks.

When I started playing online - on the university a couple of friends abused a few university PCs to play Day of Defeat and *shrug* CounterStrike and asked me one day if I'd like to join - I was in a small dilemma, since I liked my forum nick, but didn't want to use it as newbie. So I used the pseudonym Mk82HD, since it meant basially the same, and planned to switch to Snakeye once I got some "skill"; it can be debated wether or not I ever achived to get "skill", but one day we were (sadly) playing on a CS server - we mostly played DoD, which was pretty fun to me, I never really got into CS - and after hearing the usual CS 1337 bunny hopper (YES it was the WORST kind of CS server) crap like "you suck" one of the über-1337 CS pros told me "Mk82HD I don't get your name". He had assumed (wrongly) it was some pathetic 1337 speak abomination - I guess that's when I thought "if it pisses off CS players, then it must be fine". Well, as evident I never switched to Snakeye when playing online - if you can't beat them, you can at least confuse them Mr. Green

I use various mutations of the word Chuck.

Chuckus, Chuckles, CHiznackles, Worchestershirechuckles. Not that complicated.

Although sometimes I go by the name Oprah and that story is one I keep for close friends. It involves a television, mayonnaise and whole lot of Astroglide anal lube.

My real name mispronounced in papiamento and/or spanish means 'soap'. One time i was introduced to a group of people from a record company who originated from the dutch antilles and one of them heard my name wrong and said (translated from dutch) "what? your name is soap?". Everybody laughed and since then most people i know call me zeep.
