What's Your Username Mean?

Fri Mar 05, 2004 12:40 pm

Thought it would be interesting to see what everyone else's username meant to them. Mine is my initials and part of the registration number of a plane I saw the day I signed up on here.

Anyways, as for SSTjumbo, it'd be nice if someone could give it meaning. I didn't know what else to select, so this is my username. There 'ya go.
I don't know, so this is my signature.

Good topic PJS800!!

Mine actually has nothing to do with the DC-3 as many users have asked me!

It refers to Sir Freddie Laker's original attempt at a LCC in the 1970's. In September 1977, using a fleet of DC-10's he began service between New York and London with fares of only £118. The airline triggered huge public support and allowed those who normally could not afford to fly and opportunity to travel. By 1982 the other major carriers had forced the airline out of business by using "illegal price pressure".

Nice Planes! Big grin

I chose it because I think the idea was ahead of its time and admired the fact the Laker tried to open up the skies to those who could not previously afford to fly. Also I just think the name is cool Big thumbs up.

People think my username is from the JAG television show character. Nothing can be further from the truth.

I am indeed a Lt. Commander in the United States Navy (Reserves). The Rabb part refers to my nickname of "Rabbit" given to me back in my first year of naval aviation. Why I received that name will remain with me.  Smile

When I created this user name it seems I omitted the last few letters, hence the abbreviation. Oh well!

Now you know the story behind Lt. Commander _______ "Rabbit" _________.

I signed up at the time KLM introduced the 777, so I thought it would be a nice username. I read in some old posts that there was another KLM777 before, he was quite popular as I understood.

My second choice would have been

JERK TO INFLATE from the placard on the older Boeing slides. The flight attendants joked that it meant you had to get a pilot to inflate it.

My username comes from where I work (NASA).

An EVA, or "Extra-Vehicular Activity" is a spacewalk.

When the astronauts have completed all of their checklist items prior to a spacewalk, they tell Houston that they are "Go for EVA".

That explains my signature also.

Astronauts have told me that spacewalks are so exciting that when they get to saying "Houston, we are Go for EVA" the adrenaline is really pumping.

God bless,

- Jeff
