Eunuchs_Jedi, Revenge of the Gunloon

Ever notice how gunloons have such macho pseudonyms? Exhibit one, I give you unix_jedi. With that kind of handle, I'd expect the guy to be at least a Computer Science prof at MIT or, perhaps, CTO at Oracle or Sun Microsystems. Certainly, this person would be someone on Linus Torvald's speed dial.
Of course, such high expectations fall far short. And by "far short," I'm being very, very kind.
After all, if you create a psedonym like NFL_HOFer--you really should, at the very least, have: a.) played in the NFL and b.) be on someone's Hall of Fame shortlist.
For a good many gunloons, however, pseudonyms are like Enzyte. IOW, if they clap hard enough--Tinkerbell will live!
Let's looks at just a few gunloon examples:
DoubleTapper Israel
New Jovian Thunderbolt
45 Caliber Justice
The list goes on and, drearily on.

  2. I feel so left out--Zorro isn't macho enough for you?

    Oh, yeah--almost forgot that I'm "Roy" now.

    Can't I at least be Robert Roy MacGregor?

    He is at least thought of now as something of a badass.

    I'd hate to be excluded from the ranks of "gunloons" (whatever they are).

  3. So, Guy Cabot, are you feeling left out?

  4. Jadegold is pretty damn feminine.

    Then there's "Fat White Man" oh and "Weer'd Beard"

    oh and "Bob S."

    Mike's little bitch is pretty consistent.

  5. That video is absolutely hysterical.

  6. The content of this blog usually is pretty laughable.

  7. Jadefool's Biggest (Only?) Cheerleader:

    That video is absolutely hysterical.

    Normally, I'm inclined to dismiss what you say almost out of hand. I do believe in deferring to the experts, though, and in this case, you are uniquely qualified. Who, after all, could be a bigger expert on hysteria than an advocate of "gun control"?

    "For the children!!!"

  8. Like “Jadegold”- because everything you say is a gem?

  9. TS: Actually, it's my name.

    Certainly, names like "Weerd Beard" and "Bob S." and "Fat White Man" are appropriate.

    I mean "Fat White Man" is pretty self-explanatory. And "Weerd Beard" is as well: after all, you have a grwon man , with a beard, who very oddly likes to hang out with HS kids dressed as furries. If that ain't weird---

  10. Weer'd Beard?

    “He knew full well a woman hath no beard, yet something rough and hairy had appeared”

    What I quoted above in original language:
    Derk was the nyght as pich, or as the cole,
    And at the wyndow out she putte hir hole,
    And absolon, hym fil no bet ne wers,
    But with his mouth he kiste hir naked ers
    Ful savourly, er he were war of this.
    Abak he stirte, and thoughte it was amys,
    For wel he wiste a womman hath no berd.
    He felte a thyng al rough and long yherd,
    And seyde, fy! allas! what have I do?
    Tehee! quod she, and clapte the wyndow to

    Yep, that be a pretty weird beard!

  11. Thanks Laci. That was really fascinating (unusual).
