I get asked about mine all the time. I am a veterinarian with a specialty degree in poultry. Of course, folks often think I am an OBGYN when they hear I am a doctor.

1st BMW is a '03 M5, affectionately referred to as "the beast" on many forums. I'm still working on the charming part Standing on the throttle with DSC can get exciting.

First email address (way back in college) was first initial and last name, except my last name is very common. I was the sixth person with my last name and the first initial M, so my email address started out with m6. People started calling me M6, so I used a variation on that for my first internet username. I spelled it out to avoid confusing it with the BMW.

There's a lot of cool background behind the names here.

The R in mine stands for Running which is what I do a fair bit of when I'm not on here or at work. The Bull is because I'm born in May (Taurus the Bull ) and something my dad used to say I was (bull headed) especially when younger. Of course now I'm much older, wiser and less determined to do just what I want to do. LOL

University of Iowa Hawkeyes. I tailgate a lot and generally just cheer for them.

I used to go by Connie, but that ironic nickname didn't really stick after college, so I changed usernames to something more relevant. Was Connie in college cause I played varsity soccer and was the only player that was constantly in the weightroom and was known to lay people out, hence the irony of having a girly nickname.

Some people on my competitive rugby team caught wind of it and are trying to make it catch so who knows, maybe I'll be connie again in the future.

I made this name when I joined a VW board years back after purchasing my GTI. I started using it on all other boards I joined to make it easy to remember.

Gator = florida gators!
fast = name of the evil black doll included with my GTI purchase

Long ago when I was a kid, I needed a generic super hero name. And I thought WonderMan sounded kinda... ...Well you know. Anyway, later I ended up using it as my Video Gaming name. So now I use it on most of the forums I'm apart of.

In '99 (when I was 17) I always use to say "what's up dude?"

Everyone use to make fun of me for it so i kept saying it as a joke. Somehow it eventually got all mushed together as "wasupdu" and that stuck.

I'm a computer programmer, so about 10 years ago I tried to get the name 'malloc' on AIM but it was taken. 'malloc' is the memory allocation function in the C programming language. So for whatever reason I just tacked 'sir' on the front, found it wasn't taken, and I've been using it ever since.
