I used my rabbit's nickname. Sadly she died recently and I am sad but I feel like she lives on in my user name. Her real name was Jenifer but she was my little Jellybean.

It started with Steve Smith from American Dad (one of my obsessions back then). He was a total dork, as am I. Coupled with my penchant for bossing around and condescension, I started using "The Imperious Dork" as my moniker, and evolved into all-caps, hence, "THE IMPERIOUS DORK."

As for "the Big D," look at the avatar just beside the post. ;)

It was just my name. But I needed an ending to it, and I couldn't think of anything except the main reason I came on here. :P

Ganondox is 8 characters ;)

My username is because I couldn't think of one, way back in December 2009, but a ten pence piece lying on my desk saved me.


So it is....I'm a master at calculus, but I can't count. Go figure. It also turns out that Bafraid is shorter than Ganondox, but I only use it on one site and I don't really connect it with myself.

Holy crap, I've done that too! Occasionally someone will ask my age and I have to actually think about it. 29 must be the new 75, lol.
Back on topic, my name is Brad, I am 6'8" and ~250 lbs. In my youth I was very impulsive, which came across as bad to teachers and authorities, hence the nickname.

These topics seem to repeat themselves every couple of months.

There's a character in Philip K. Dick's novel Ubik named Jory.

While I was being chased by tigers across the icy wastes of Peru, I stumbled upon a tent containing the mummified remains of a travelling salesman. Clutched in his dessicated fist was a sheaf of paper bearing the single word, "ambivalence." It's stuck with me ever since.

Stoned drunk people giving random names to random people.

I have the mind and the soul of a Londoner and I had a rebellious attitude when I first joined, 8 years ago. It has nothing to do with the name of the band.
