Am I the only one who can't wait for basjoos to chime in here? basjoos is now used as a verb here for modifying. I hope I'm not disappointed with the answer.

I believe Basjoos is a type of banana. Let's hope I am wrong though. Takes the excitement right out of it.

Basjoos is a type of banana, their may not be more mystery there ... I believe he owns that type of banana tree.

Because I was born in 1976 and I have always liked wagons. My first car was an 84 Cavalier wagon. Every vehicle since then has been a wagon except for my Celebrity.

Daox has a short and fairly uninteresting story to go behind it.

One day I got internet access and wandered on to MSN's now non-existant gaming zone to play some X-Wing Alliance online. I started the registration process and had to come up with a handle. At this point I don't even think I had an email address. Anway, I starting throwing random letters together until I came up with something that I deemed cool and at that point I had Daox. I have used it ever since (over 10 years now). Its not normally taken from what I've run into. However, there are a few people who have taken the name here and there.

Mine is an interesting name - and a rather ODD source.

I am always making up silly songs for my girls ( 5 and 1) - changing lyrics or making up completely new songs. My mother always called me "creative" but i am just plain WEIRD. ( I calculated the day my daughter turned PI years old ( 3.14159 yrs old) and we had Pie to celebrate.. I can send anyone the spreadsheet - all you do is enter date and time of birth and it calculates all your PI Days ( my 11th PI day was June 24 08)

see - is that just weird... well back to the actual post here...

About 2 years ago - wife and i were playing Civilization 3 on the computer.
I has just recieved a Military Leader (1st one for me) and we had to name the person.
I wanted a strong name that would inspire FEAR in my enemies and show that he was the ruler of all!!!

So i typed "Doofus McFancypants"... my wife was actually on the floor laughing..
needless to say he DIED the next turn.. but i though the name was unique - so it has stuck. use it an a few forums.

Just like the Highlander - there can be only one..... Doofus McFancypants.

Steve
