This vid explains it all, except for the theme song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZxLkCQjg1w

oh, and sorry about the sound.

This image to the right was produced as a waste of time during a Fireworks class at school. It is a photo of Nixon with an eyepatch, a parrot, and if you look close enough at the bigger pic, you see a FSM lapel pin.

I have fun with Nixon. :fsm_yarr:

Nice vid, dude.

I chose mine because, well, I practically have a coffee IV drip at all times. If I am not drinking coffee, I'm either waiting for coffee to be ready, or it's after 9pm. If I do not have my coffee, I am incapable of doing anything but sleeping. Hence, fueled by coffee.

Side note - Did you know that Young wrote that song for Ronnie Van Zandt? True story. Unfortunately, Ronnie died, and fortunately, Neil recorded it anyway.

As for the moniker, Elastoman has been a part of my online presence for well over a decade. In all honesty, I stole it from a friend of mine just after it's creation, and it's been mine since.

me too only the pasta is "farfalle" - changed the end to "a" because in Italian the "e" is a masculine ending the "a" is feminin and I am female from beginning to end

(and I like butterflies which is what farfalle means)

I tried getting my name I use for everything else (chinchillachic) but I never got my confirmation e-mail. So finally I came up with HeathenPastafarian because I know that my family (mostly my in-laws) would kill to get me to be churchy and all fundamentalist like them. I know they thought I was horrible before for not going to church....I know they think I am even more at risk of going to hell now that I have declared myself as not believing in God...hence the heathen part.

The only drawback is everyone thinks I'm a guy for some reason?
-Stop using Jesus as an excuse for being a narrow minded bigot.
-Music was her life, the lyrics were her story.
-Be careful what you say, it may remind me of a song that needs to be sung.
-GOT JESUS? I thought you had him....shit!
-Why do people with closed minds always open their mouths?
-My pit bull is my co-pilot.
-To err is human; to ARRGGHHH is pirate!
-Why do we kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong?
-Well behaved women rarely make history.
-Laughter: When a smile has an orgasm
-I'm not so good at the advice; can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

most everyone assumed I was male for a whiIe (I stayed gender neutral and made no attempt to decieve) until RRR asked and I confirmed his conclusion. I think the assumption is made because most on the sight are male

Most people, if a name isn't overtly feminine immediately think "female," because traditional gender roles don't allow for any sort of androgyny on the part of women. Retarded? Yeah. Yet it's still true. Unless your name is Flowers McGee or something, they will assume you are male.

cassles, because my name is cassidy, and half the people i know call me cass

and last year at work we all had walkie talkie code names that had something to do with water or beach and so on (ex. sebastion was sea-bass, cameron bates was sharkbait) and i was cassles made of sand, cassles for short

the name stuck, and now i use it for this kind of stuff all the time

For many years I lived up in the mountains. The Appalachians are part of what's probably the oldest mountain range on earth, and they used to be jagged and barren. Over time wind and rain has worn away all the imperfections, allowed the land around them to become fertile, and exposed the solid rock that was underneath. Something about that imagery strikes a chord with me, the way being beaten down can leave something or someone stronger and in many ways better than they were before.

Faithful Pirate because I've finally found a form of religion I can actually consider and not have to deal with anger, confusion, and fits of laughter, and 42 because it is, of course, the answer to absolutely everything.
