is the online nickname by which I subscribe to several websites. I used to be a member on Snopes.com's messageboards, and accumulated over 15,000 posts, before being banned for reasons that were never explained to my satisfaction. I think I scared the site's owner when I took on one of his pet trolls. But I'll never know for sure, as my allegiances have shifted.
Yes, I know how lame that sounds.

This is the most recent picture of me that is decent enough for display. I just don't photograph well. This is me in my tux a couple of years ago, just after I became a Master Mason (no, it's not really a secret, I can tell you that.)
I'm on the left (your left.) That's my father on the right.
This is me in an 'Action Pose,' Wielding my trusty claymore, Beltempest. Fear us. And laugh.
This is Me, Southparkified. Scary enough for you? Yes, that's a dead jeep. It's an in-joke, don't worry about it.
ANOTHER ME: (I like survey things. I'm going to add more eventually. Take one, they're silly.)
You are an INCENDIARY BADASS!
You are volatile. You're not too focused on accomplishing all your objectives so long as there's a lot of fire and brimstone to accompany the Hell you bring to your enemies. Chances are you piss off a lot of people and keep on grinnin'.
You're a Lunar Dragon. You prefer to stay secluded from the rest of the world. You have few friends, but those you have grow close. Love, to you, is in the night. You look to the moon for guidance and the stars for luck. The Lunar Dragon feels comfortable in the cloak of darkness, but you must learn to slowly step out into the light.
You're the Cheshire Cat. Your mysterious aura and your penchant for riddles keep your friends guessing. You dislike staying too long in any one place. Your advice is always sound, if somewhat enigmatic. The sum total of this is that people are always following you and you just WANT TO GET AWAY!
The ULTIMATE personality test brought to you by Quizilla The Dragon. Powerful, Majestic, Regal. You rarely do things by halves and hate compromise. Those who you trust you give your all for. Weak is something that you are not.
