As long as I can remember, Alias50 has been my handle wherever I go. I used to watch Alias as a kid, in fact, it's still one of my all-time favorite shows ten years later. That's probably where this came from in the first place. (Why didn't I just go Alias47 then? Maybe it was taken, who knows) In any case, I thought of it one time, and it stuck.

Got it back in the days of Quake 2. Was talking to a clan mate while waiting for an online game to start and he asked me why I play Quake. My response was 'Just For Kicks'. He started calling me "Just for kicks' in subsequent games, the clan picked it up, then other clan's and it began to stick. It has morphed into 'jesferkicks' over the years.

Hi! Nice to see so many nick explanations :)

I came up with the name Aristazi when I was in high school playing FFVII. You get to name your characters and I really loved adding "Z" into the names, so Aeris became Aristazi. I fell in love that character and the name I gave her and so have used it ever since.

In case you're curious what I named my other characters in FFVII:
Cloud = Ruvitz (yeah, nothing like "Cloud"... I'd written a short story about a baby fox in middle school and liked the name I gave him, so I used it :) If I were a boy this might be my Nick today instead ;)
Yuffie = Yuquaz
Barret = Barutz
I think maybe I left the rest as they were originally, cause those are the only ones I remember.

I got my nick name in high school. My reactions were quick back then. Now they are more at a snail's pace.

Das ist in der Doktor!

How I came to be known as...
A friend that I worked with, would celebrate the New Year by broadcasting on a pirate radio station he would put together by using a few "spare" parts we had borrowed for the occasion from work.
One year someone came up with the idea of putting on a radio show with the format where people would call in and ask for advice about personal problems, and receive an answer on air..
Due to the fact I was about the only one who could hold a microphone let alone remain sitting upright in a chair for any length of time, ( despite large amounts of alcohol having been consumed )
I was picked to play "The Doctor"
So in the worst German accent you can imagine I started taking calls and slurring out advice.
Somehow the phone number got out to the general public and we took a call from a elderly lady who's problem was that she was in the middle of giving her dog a bath and her husband called and needed to be picked up from the airport RIGHT NOW !! and what was she to do with a sopping wet dog?
So,I asked her,
(Sigmund Freud is now talking..)

..do you have a microwave oven?
She said yes.
And I asked,
es..it a "large" microwave oven?
and she said yes...
And I asked,
es this dog that es sopping wet, a small dog?
and she said,yes.
Well I said,
the solution es easy,
you just pop the dog in the microwave ont high
and fluffy will be medium rare and bone dry in no time!
Now,imagine if you will,
the sound a phone hitting the kitchen floor and off in the distance,
you hear a hysterical old womam crying.
At this point, our host, who also has hit the floor,
raises his head up and gasps,
...God Doctor,
you were ruthless
