    Caveat Emperor is a bit of a worldplay --

    On one hand, it's a frequent misquote of the legal term: "Caveat Emptor" which is standard legalese for "let the buyer beware." I figured it'd be fitting for a law student and a Star Wars fan.

    On the other hand, it's also latin for "King of Qualifications," which I was always accused of by friends when talking about sports. I was always fond of the "Yeah, he might be OK, but..." arguments when discussing players.

    I made it up on the spot when I needed a username and wanted to do something different than usual.

    Re: What inspired your RedsZone username? / What does your username mean?

    My father was a big CB fanatic, so he gave me a CB radio for my car (and helped install it and 'match' the antenna, etc.) and every time I was headed into or out of town we talked on the CB (him at home and me in the car) and my handle was Red Scorpion - I am a Scorpio and drove a red car at the time. When the World Wide Web was invented by Al Gore, I found myself in need of another 'handle' so I dropped the Red and became a Scorpion of the Web, thus WebScorpion. I've used the moniker everywhere since some time in the 90's...my wife even knew me as WebScorpion before she knew my name. When I joined RedsZone I considered dropping the 'Web' and returning to the quite fitting Red Scorpion, but for some reason I resisted the urge. So there it is.

    One of my favorite hobbies is to pluck rock band names out of everyday conversation. Our latest one is "Grandma Forgot Her Pants" (long story behind this that seemed hilarious at the time and I almost got us kicked out of a restaurant).

    About seven years ago when I signed onto IWON.COM, I tried to do the user name goreds. It said someone else had it. I tried goreds1 then it finally accepted goreds2. The rest is history?

    I like Gastic Contents and Hearty Polyp Chuckles.

    Roller Derby Girls names are fun too. My theoretical Roller Derby girl name is Helena Handbasket.

    That reminds me of this site:

    I just tried that Wu Tang site. It told me my name was Big Gay Mule.

    Monolithic, that is sweet. My Wu name is Bilious Bad Janitah. Which, coincidentally, is my actual name as well.

    My buddies and I like doing this too. For a while, I was partial to Puppies For Sale as a band name, from a sign we saw on someone's front lawn, with the debut album being titled 'Bloodworms & Cigarettes,' from a sign we saw on a general store.

    If only I had an iota of musical talent so I could put some of these names to use.
