    'suraswami' = Lord of the Lords.:D

    My friends call me 'sura' for some reason and part of my last name is 'swami'. Hence the name.

    Started playing Tribes 2 and I was big into WWF at the time. Stone cold Steve Austin's catchphrase was "Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass". Being the 13 year old noob that I was, I used my initials "JC" to say JC316 says I just kicked your ass.

    After that is just kinda stuck, plus not too many people use that name, so it's usually free.

    When I was in high school there was a group of us called the techies(we were sort of the electronical/computer geeks of the school, and people started calling us that). One guys screenname was techie. So one of the other guys purposely spelled it wrong as tekie and made that his screenname to poke fun at him. Well I replaced the guy named tekie as the "leader" of the group, so I made the name newtekie to continue making fun of him. Eventually I needed to add a number to make is web "safer" so I could use it on some sites, and being the lazy ass that I am I just used 1.

    my name is some generic name I made up when I was 8. I've started using Stealth as my name though, I like to sneak up on people and kill them.

    <--- Pretty obvious with this one. Huge Dale Earnhardt Jr fan & love NASCAR (actually any motorsport).


    And yes, if speed racer was not a cartoon character I would look a little like him.
