    "Raisor" is an Irish word that means, roughly, ruggedly handsome major depressive

    the translation is a bit iffy, I agree.

    tixe is exit spelled backward. This is somehow the way I've read exit signs all of my life,even though I'm not at all lysdexic. It means I don't know whether I'm coming or going.

    As a long time fan of the heavy metal band Savatage (now primarily known as Trans Siberian Orchestra) I started using the name "Savafan" on the old savatage.com message board. Eventually, I just decided to use the same name all over the internet. I doubt many here would get that, with the exception of rychian and Ravenlord, both of which I haven't seen on here in a long time.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I thought of Ravenlord immediately when I read your source. Funny, I always assumed you were a fan of "Savannah Smiles". :

    He's still around, I've known that kid since he was born. I understand why he hasn't posted lately though, he's got a lot of personal things going on.

    Growing up in the 80's, I always wanted to be Ron Oester. I played second base, and I used a closed batting stance just like him. And since I'm from St. Henry, and everyone's hero in St. Henry is Wally Post...well, the name just sorta wrote itself.

    I thought it would be cool to come up with a word I can be known as on the internet and would be available most places, so if you see Tornon somewhere it's usually me

    I could do that with 'tixe', but I've always regretted using it. It sounds like a girls name.
