my 8th grade math teacher once thought Pie Cars was the correct pronunciation of my last name, it's close, and a lot of people call me that, but then he's like "what's that, like cars made out of pie or something?" but it was a good fit and I use it for everything now, xbl, steam, techpb, etc.

I live in atlanta, i play paintball, and i like the number 24.

Pretty uncreative, I wish I could go back a few years and change it to something original.

when i was thinking of a new user name i thought lux.. luxury.. luxor.. amazing hotel in vegas.. all caps makes it more prominent. i thought that just LUXOR wasn't enough so i decided to put numbers on it, and i couldn't think of anything but 54 because LUXOR54 just flows off the tongue easier than any other numbers, sounded cool to me. at least it is't one of those xXXxSwAG-MLG-YolOxXXx gamertags...

I came up with the name "techpb" as is Technical Paintball, focusing on the more technical parts of paintball instead of just breakout videos

Then I put my first name after the company name

TechPB-Mike

but other user names I've had were Rendition Tech, that was my favorite one until I left my computer on one night, and one my jokester teammates hopped on my computer, used my user name and blasted PBN with gay porn as a joke.

I grew up riding BMX, and I was always wheeling and dealing. So one time when I was at Woodward camp I set up this HUGE trade that involved over 30 people, and I had it all lined up before I did the first trade. It was crazy, and took most of the day to complete. When it was done, I had a bunch of happy customers, and a ton of new stuff.

I ended up with a new set of rims, a new frame/fork, some rare tshirts, and tons of stickers. On that day guys started calling me "free" enterprise. As I started the trade with nothing. The name stuck, and for years after that guys called me that. I recently found some old footage from 1990 and threw together a little edit from back in the day on my BMX.

I just realized I never actually explained my name.

My first paintball outing, the team called me panda because they thought the paint would bounce off of my fat, like Kung Fu Panda (just came out). I just put revenge because I felt like it.

Usually my username is "xXhunter47Xx", or some variation of that, but Panda was my nickname in paintball and this is a paintball forum so what the heck.

I chose this username because it's the same one I had over at PBreview from back in the mid 2000's when that place was still alive. There's really no story behind it to speak of; I was 16 and stupid. I did have a more interesting one from the Lapco forums called ICDragon, which obviously borrowed the acronym from Indian Creek Designs. At the time I was shooting a 2004 BKO, so I found a cool word to tack onto the end of the ICD. Incidentally, that's also my gamer tag on Xbox live.

And back in school days I played alot of football. And kids always said I was like a charging bear. So got the nickname

It means "lazy bastard" (not directly, but in effect) in Norwegian, and I thought it fairly appropriate. I have used it for years, well before TechPB, and it has just kind of become my default. Always makes for good times when you hear it in Norwegian conversation, and you associate it with yourself.

Well my username came from the fact that I play soccer. However the only nickname I've ever received in my life is "Germany". However I deemed that lame and not cool enough. So my XBL GT is EOD DeathDealer

EOD- Explosive Ordinance Disposal, the job I'd like to do in the Navy

However, I'm just waiting to get a legit nickname.

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.

EOD- Explosive Ordinance Disposal, the job I'd like to do in the Navy

One of the first things you learn in EOD school is that they are very superstitious.
Hate to break it to you, but having anything EOD-related associated with you before you earn your crab (be it a T-shirt, poster, or Gamertag), will pretty much guarantee that, by some strange cosmic force, you will fail.

Also, in the EOD world, the movie The Hurt Locker doesn't exist, has never existed, and will never exist. Period.
Remember that.
