I saw this on another forum so I thought it would be a good idea here.

Let me go first.



My nickname is "King" and was given to me by my father due to me being an only child. My friend said you need to make a nickname for e-mail (this was in 7th or 8th grade and was a "interesting" walk.) She said I should have ""king" incorporated in it and due to me living in California, I thought I would be neat to trick people over X-box live thinking that I was on the opposite side of the country so they wouldn't stalk me so hence the username "kingJurzy".

It is the same on XBL, PBnation,CustomCockers, MCB. Basically if I scam you, it is really easy to find me.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Back when I made my gamer tag for Xbox live, I was playing call of duty...I want to say cod 4...but anyways I decided to make a live account to play online vs, and I was stumped as to what to call myself. I went to the kitchen to find inspiration and a snack, and grabbed a Twinkie. I was half way done with it when "TacticalTwinkie" hit me. A stroke a genius. I accidentally fucked up the spelling an forgot the "a" in "tactical", and I stuck with that misspelling. Im sure as hell not going to pay to change it. TacticlTwinkie is my username or handle on nearly every site I'm a part of now.

my paintball playing friends and i go to a school that teaches latin, and back when i was interested in tournaments, i came up with the latin word "invictus" for our team name, which means invincible, unbreakable, ext., and even though we ended the team, i personally kept the name for anything related to paintball. and btw, my pro pic is the poem "invictus"

Originally I wanted my name to Flash or something when I created my first email account but all variations I could think of at that time was taken. Then I moved to my next favorite character but sonic and sonicx was taken. So I added the 059 which was the address of my first house backwards. So I have the account Sonicx059 for everything although I do have an alternative and just put 059 on the end. So if you see a username that ends in 059 that's me.

as a 14 year old i loved autocockers (still do), and thought i was punk rock (i wasn't, but still enjoy punk rock from time to time).

yeah, wish i could change it, but whateves.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."
