Re: Why do we call you that?!

You call me "Involute" because I told you to.


Involute -- from Wolfram MathWorld

Then wind the string up, keeping it always taut.

Kind of like Scot and the Arcade. :evilaugh:

Re: Why do we call you that?!

I've been told that most people think that Helvet means "Veteran from Hell". I never thought about that when I made up this name.....:idunno:

My real last name is Switser. This means inhabitant of Switzerland in Dutch (I come from Holland). The Swiss call themselves Helvetians, so I call myself Helvet. If you don't believe me, check out the postage stamps from Switzerland. They are all marked Helvetia.......

SGT = Sergeant(now I'm a Staff Sergeant but to lazy to remember a new name)
Ski = what everyone calls a polock in the Army

XX = my bike

Usually just go by SGTSki but it wouldn't let me when I registered so

Mine is simply my initials + XX
If you have ever seen Full Metal Jacket, than you know who Animal Mother is:evilaugh:
Sorry, I thought it was because you were a huge Pink Floyd fan. Because of your avatar being Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" album cover, I thought you combined PF's "Animals" album with "Atom Heart Mother" to form Animal Mother.

Very interesting, and I never thought of it that way.

You are correct though, I am indeed a HUGE Floyd fan:thumb: However, I never cared too much for Animals or AHM.

Anyway...:D

Re: Why do we call you that?!

I was riding two up on my CB900c down this hilly road, and the guy behind me on a Gixxer1k said I was airborne over every hill. When I got into m/c forums I was airborne900c, then when I got the XX...

It's just an old nickname from college wrestling days... and decades later I still pump some iron - 'keeps me young at heart... ;)

Re: Why do we call you that?!

Being young and silly, I loved all the trick carbon parts on sportbikes. Also fancied myself a bit of a speed demon. Started off as trickracer, but then shifted to trkracer. I've had it ever since '94, so now it's like an old friend (but, I still love trick carbon and... might.. :rolleyes: still.. go fast... from time to time...:eyebrows:).

BTW, awesome thread!

I just couldn't think of anything cute and I wanted to read the boards quickly at the time.

Re: Why do we call you that?!

It started with the Seinfeld episode.

My jewish friend refered to me as a "rural hipster doofus" (after the famous Kramer quote: "am I a hipster doofus?" and the fact I live in a small town north of Calgary)

I dropped the doofus portion as it made the name too long and hipsterdoofus was already taken on hotmail and a few other sites I frequent.

so I became ruralhipster.
