    Mine? Being online in 1994. [rofl]

    We weren't that original back then. I've been Dennis in MA for 22 years virtually everywhere.

    "Toy" cause their wasn't a toy, umm "collectible", that I could pass up from the Snap On or Mac Tool trucks when they came to the shop, back when I was getting grease caked under the fingernails. Miss those days. The "539" was courtesy of AOL when I tried using Toy as my screen name. My avatar, what can I say I'm a Trekkie.

    I used to be an enforcer for a local gang and my weapon of choice was a lead pipe.

    I almost picked "LJTibbs" when I signed up here.

    Decided being fshalor a bit longer wasn't a bad thing, even though I'm probably way to easy to find by that name.

    For seldom have any lost origins returned

    Some origins of knowledge should be put on the shelf. But none should be allowed to vanish.

    Ok, I exaggerated. There were multiple contributing factors to my name. The avatar is a doodle my boy made while at summer camp.

    I play some guitar and my first guitar was a "Slothead" and "Slim" is what I am not. Obviously I'm a fan of the movie Patton. I love the fact George C Scott won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role as General Patton and refused to accept calling it a “two-hour meat parade, a public display with contrived suspense for economic reasons".

    From the R. Crumb comic character of the same name. In my teens I would live a Fritz the Cat life going to parties and trying to get laid. I would then tell my buddies how I almost had sex but how I didn't manage to succeed. Much like Fritz the Cat.
    Plus I look like a fritz, or an Aryan which was their other nickname for me. I was easy to spot in a crowd. "who is the Aryan over there?" or "go ask the Aryan for more 22's. He's got a trunk full" or "the Aryan didn't get laid again! LOL!"
    My avatar is my dad on the farm just before he enlisted in '69 and shortly before I was born. If you wonder what I look like, people think it's me on the tractor 30 years ago.

    Utter laziness/lack of creativity. Had a box of new skates in my office the day I decided to create a screen name
