    My username is sudeep.life because life amuses me in every way, in every possible things I encounter on a daily basis. The tiny things in life are the most precious if you can make time to cherish those. You can gift a Bugatti to your best friend but will that give you the joy of having a conversation with the same friend over a cup of tea or coffee? Life is intriguing, surprising, confusing, challenging, yet rewarding in so many ways, punishing as well in its own way. I do not wish to complete my journey of life depending on either I will end up rich or poor but I just want to complete my journey having lived the most as much as I can as per my terms cherishing the true happiness I can get from my life and how I have lived it.

    I'm going to use my gaming username rather than my forum username for this, because my forum username is basically just my name.

    Whenever I play any game, I use the username "Moneymonster7". Inconveniently, I'm not rich, despite what this username might sound like.

    Back in 2008, I was a young kid and I was extremely proud of myself for saving up $229 to buy an iPod Touch. On that iPod Touch, I pretty much just played games. Cartoon Wars, some tower defense games, and then several games from a company called storm8 (which I believe is out of business now?). Racing Live, Pets Live (that came later), iMobsters Live, and a few others I don't remember the names of. All of their games had the exact same gameplay with different themes.

    The idea was you build up an income of the in-game currency through your fights and from hourly income from your income buildings/sources, then purchase weapons/cars/parts to improve your "team", which you use to fight or race with against other players. The fights were all just simulated, and all you saw was who you were fighting and what the outcome was.

    Anyway, in several of these games, I decided I didn't really care about my "team" of cars or whatever that game's theme was. All I cared about was my income. So each time I logged in, I took whatever amount of in-game currency I had built up since my last login, and I put it all back into the income sources to increase my hourly income. And so, Moneymonster7 was born. Moneymonster because all I cared about was increasing my overall value in money in each of these games. 7 because it's my favorite number. No, not because there were 6 other Moneymonsters.....

    One username "B1acHK0ps" = 3 stories. The name as a whole identifies me as a black man working in IT Operations (black ops). The 1 and 0 usage is because I used to have a business card with the title Master of 1's and 0's. The last story is related to the capital HK in the (purposefully misspelled black). HK stands for Hidden Knowledge a Black history trivia board game I invented that will be released later this year.

    If you just changed your username then the changes don't appear. Can you try logging out and signing in again? :)

    The story behind my username is easy: it's an alternate spelling of "catharsis" and it sounded like a unique word to use as a name. Too bad not many people pronounce it properly the first time. (It's pronounced as catharsis but some call me Kigh-tharsis which is a small pet peeve of mine.) I've started using the name Strix a lot too for gaming-related items where it's not taken. ;)

    EDIT: Story behind the name Strix if you care: named after my new gaming laptop, an ASUS ROG Strix Scar II and it's a badass gamer name.

    One year after attending a halloween party dressed as him, I won best costume. Also on my car I have a batman theme going with a custom emblem and plates. Then one day on here maybe a year or two ago I saw a contest for using a oneplus item to create a scene so while talking and trying to figure out what to do my girlfriend said hey put on my halloween costume. So while she was laughing at me the whole time I was running around in full batman gear setting up the camera I took the photo and entered....I won a phone!!! So now the batman kinda stuck lolol, my friends refer to my car as the bat lol a little kid on my block says there goes batman again.

    so, uhh... it's actually my name on Google (as you see the G) but it came to my mind when I was doing homework related to depression like 2 years ago. I found it funny and didn't hesitate in changing it

    I am from India and my first OnePlus phone was OnePlus Two which was very much special in many ways since it was the first phone which I brought with my hard earned money and buying a OnePlus phone in the first week of its launch was so difficult because if you remember during those days it could only be brought with a code and getting a code in the first week itself was a different ball game together!
    Used it for 4 long years without a single problem then finally brought OnePlus 6 the first day it was launched! Different phones but the feeling still remains the same!!

    pdodecaeder is short for Pentagon Dodecaeder which is a mysterious object found in my hometown, Tongeren in Belgium.
    No one knows where it comes from not what it is was used for but it is dated back a couple thousand years and only a few were ever found in Europe.
    I curious about this object, maybe a little obsessed, and even had it tattooed on my chest.
    just Google it on let me know what you think it could have been used for
