    Default My Screen Name

    OK. So I've had someone off the forum ask me if I train birds of prey, and I've had someone ask me if I really like Soap Operas. The answer to both questions is "No".

    My screen name, Falconcry, is a nick-name that only my closest of friends call me. We were camping 10 years back. We were inebriated. I farted. It sounded like a, well, you know... falcon cry.

    The "72" comes from my current obsession with Grateful Dead renditions of Drak Star from 1972.

    Clear!?

    No; they don't. That was a one time thing. We were around a campfire on my friend's property in South Carolina sitting on logs, and I lifted my leg to let out what I did not realize would be my name for the rest of my life.

    Farts I can stand a hell of a lot more than the Grateful Dead. Even ones that sound like falcons. My screen name goes back to online gaming, Mechwarrior specifically.

    :tongue: No I don't like farts, just a better option than the Grateful Dead for me.

    Squealing pigs, screaming children, nails on chalkboard, all better options than the Dead as far as I'm concerned.

    Mine comes not from the video game! Nor is it taken from High Altitude Low Opening....which the latter would be kinda cool but I am scared of heights.

    I use to be into Halo guitars for a while. My wife use to say after an argument..."and I guess you are just so perfect you should have a halo around your f'ing head huh?" And I was born in 1971. :tongue:

    My screen name comes from when I used to do a lot of online racing games and a professor in college who always got my name wrong. My last name is Forgo (not Fargo), the prof always called me Fongo. It stuck. Everyone called me Fongo. Then while playing racing games I wanted something Italian(ish) sounding, so I added the lio to Fongo. Thus Fongolio.

    I'd rather be in a room full of fat guys all farting like falcons than listen to ANY Bryan Adams song. When I was working construction my partner and I would have contests to see who could run to the radio the fastest to shut off a Bryan Adams song. I once did it in two notes.

    You heard it too?! You know, our perceptions of my fart sound could have been chemically induced as well, I don't really remember.

    Where abouts was the property, BTW?
