    Ok a common thread on many forums, what is the meaning/origins of your username?

    CanadianX because the I have an Xterra and the first web based forum I belonged to was a truck based forum for the X and so the I use the moniker on other forums because I am not creative enough to come up with different handles, that and I would forget them.

    Good thread. Might be better in JM.

    Freakhead is a nick name from my youth partying days and affinity for my self pro-claimed theme song :norton of Machine Head by Bush. ( Bush X in some regions ).

    It just stuck for forums as Internet started around that time. :rofl

    I was born under a very strong willed Grandmother from Ireland, who mairred a German pilot form WWI.

    He was a POW during almost the entire war. The speical POW camp was near the town where my family lived.

    After the war he returned to his family in Germany & sold his estate. When back to Ireland, married my Grandmother & moved to the US, also taking all those who wanted to get away for the English mistreatment.

    From that time on the first male child of each generation was called Wolfgang.

    Now how hard do you think that name was to have when born during the second world war w/ Germany again.

    All good, the Grandfather was a very good US citizen & never looked back.

    Sorry for the long winded answer.

    My father was Peter also, so my family referred to us as Big Peter and Little Peter. My dad passed away years ago. I am 6' tall and 220lbs and still get called Little Peter when family are telling stories.

    There is an old saying "he who hesitates is lost".

    I am sometimes lost, ergo, I am sometimes "he who hesitates"

    Ya, I know, a long way to go for a pun.

    When I was riding a Cruiser and belonged to the local club, we held a Toy Run every September. There was a Club Member nicknamed "Muffin". He was complaining on the Toy Run about being labelled "Muffin", to which I replied, "Well, at least its Muffin and not Crotch Stain!". Twenty leather clad bikers turned around and said, "No. But your's now is!"

    Our Road Captain, who was one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet showed up in my shop a few days later with a custom Name Tag that read "C-Stain" because the engraving shop wouldn't engrave the "Crotch" part. He passed away a few days later at the age of 47. I've had the name ever since, and will continue to use it as a tribute to him.

    A flyingjib is a nautical term for the outermost jib, (head sail), on a square rigged ship. Its use reflects my interest in boat building and sailing. If you can identify the bouy in my avatar then you too most likely have an interest in things nautical.

    I work shipping and receiving, therefore I handle boxes all day long, and some have said they would replace me with a monkey if they could.

    Fred is a abbreviation for Fuck'in Redhead (which my friend Mike use to say every time I did something stupid) and like most redheads I am feisty.:sweeti: plus I was fed up of being mistaken for a oversized Harley riding butch. Only problem now is I get mistaken for a guy so maybe I should change my name to Ditch Bitch.

    A name I came up with when I was dialing into old BBS servers to play text based RPG games. It has no meaning though many have asked where it came from.
