mine is actually a long derivate from ilyushin.
I liked the look of the planes when i was younger (still like them) and my first username for network gaming was then Dr. yushin
The it came to Dr. jushin (cause j looked better).
Then i cutted the doctor away cause it is ridiculous.
Finally i ended up with jush cause it's a nice nickname is think.
A lot of people pronounce it like [jash] but it's in fact the u from uniform juuuush.
Crazy story short nickname.

I was on my think tank (the crapper) and I had a brainstorm. Zippyjet
is catchy, easy to remember and I don't have to worry about funky numbers, symbols or stepping on my fellow users by pirating their name.

I fell out of the back door of a B737 we were doing a structural repair on. I broke my arm badly and the guys said they thought i was going to just be a greasespot on the ground when they saw me fall. So it stuck. Even my coveralls had the name greasespot added to them.
Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

In reality I was really up for just about anything the crew wanted to do on a layover but after 9/11 and the airline downsizing and resultant labor issues, the crews just sort of stopped socializing for a while. I, on the other hand would go out and see what the city had to offer.
I slamclicked but I wasn't IN the room.
I chose to capitalize the second of the combining words to make it clearer but people still call me Slam Chick. I am a guy, okay?

That's actually deceiving, LM is in-situ and thus is in fact cancerous, not truly pre-cancerous as a Dysplastic Nevus would be. It is pre-LMM or Lentigo Maligna Melanoma which is invasive cancer.
Anyway, there's the definition of it. How I got it was I worked on a research database at a Cancer Hospital, and as I began I worked mostly with Lentigo Maligna and early LMM cases and somehow it turned into an AOL name for us at work, and kind of a de facto nickname. So, I just kind of threw it in as an a.net username as opposed to making it something well thought out.

TN from the designator of the former TAA (Trans-Australia Airlines) where I worked when I was just a boy - hence the second part of the name. Probably a silly name, but I'm stuck with it now.

Hey SlamChick, thats pretty good. How big are your boobs?
I got mine because I once rand into a pilot and while chatting with him, his name badge became readily apparent, Landin Geere. I burst out laughing. Later, I was thinking what my a.net name could be(when I decided to join) and I just happened to turn on the TV to Airplane!. After watching the autopilot's name was Otto, IIRC. It sounded good and seemed like an airliners.net-ish name. But then I decided, if I put pilot on there, someone may take me seriously and think I am a pilot, which they still do. So I modified it once again, and taking a bit of mocking to pilots, turned it into Pylit. And here I am, OttoPylit. It was either that or ThrustReverser, and I thought OttoPylit was better.

Delta Flight 021 was the usual flight home for me from my summertime (and occasional Christmas) exile to stay with family. Prior to that it was AF007, but DL021 was the first direct flight back home, and is still the main one I end up taking when returning from there.
