    Default So how did you choose your name?

    Your nickname i mean. The names you go by on this site.

    Me, i read the epic poem Paradise Lost (Multiple times), and in that Raziel is the Angel of secrets. I chose it because i have one or two (or three) secrets. But in Paradise Lost, Raziel never falls with Lucifer, his Brother, Ramiel, does, but he comes back. I wouldn't name myself after a Demon. Raziel is mentioned in some old texts, but not the Bible. *shrug*

    You?

    I'm not very original. It's just a combination of my stage name and my "religious" views.

    Mine is short for Bahubali but also Bahuba is a "Mother goddess of Zaire" So take your pick. I chose cause I sort of look like this guy except not gray, smaller ears, less nipple, and I don't walk around with my dong hanging out also I never wear clothes like that

    My first stripper name was Shy, because I thought it was ironic. I got "Sky?" "Kai" and other guesses from customers, plus lots of "what's your real name?" questions. I told guys my real name was Anna - which ended up being what I changed my stripper name to

    Just to be clear, they don't name Angels other that Lucifer in the Bible.

    Life asked Death, “Death, why do people love me but hate you?”

    It's a portmanteau of R2-D2 and ED-209 from Robocop.

    I love the FIRST Robocop. The second one a little less, but still like it. The less said about the third one, the better. That movie is TERRIBLE. Yeah lets have him fight an Android NINJA. Totally stupid.

    Yeah, that's some football player, not even Peter Weller. LAME.

    The only really good part of that movie is when he's carrying the kid through the sewers and she's like "Are there Rats?" and he looks down and there are Rats everywhere, and he goes "One or two" to comfort her. That's Robocop. I didn't really have a problem with the guy who played Robocop, but, to me, the story was shit. An android Ninja? Come on!

    I'd be able to run circles around whoever wrote that movie.

    Representing!!!!!!!

    Mine is an off the cuff word puzzle. That's it, I made it mysterious to have some level of anonymity on here.


    True story- we had a local cop where I grew up who was a dead ringer for Peter Weller. He apparently had a good sense of humor about the Robocop movie.

    I had no hero worship attitude about cops, so I was just amused that he looked like Robocop. That was fuckin funny.

    I don't have any Hero Worship about Cops. Some are good, some just got into it to fuck with people and rule over them. But i don't mind the Movies about them. Including the original Robocop. Those are usually about the good ones, anyway.

    It kinda was on my mind. And I suppose I expected death to be more boring, as well.

    Death isn't boring. There is either an Afterlife, or there is not an Afterlife. But no matter what, it won't be boring. You'll probably be shitting yourself with fear. And then either the lights go out, OR you awaken in the Promised Land. One or the other. If there isn't an Afterlife, you'll never know it. Your lights are out.

    Last I heard, Peter Weller didn't want to be in "Robocop Returns." I was like, why bother then? But it seems he may have changed his mind...
    It's a sequel to the original and ignores the other two, if it actually gets made.
