Well, not totally pointless. I chose my old user name (OhioBrit) So that i could indicate to people that I am a Brit living in Ohio (Gasps of amazement) I only used the "Brit" part to give people a clue as to why I spelled a lot of my words wrong and used words like wanker a lot.

Anyways, that backfired on me after about my fifth post when I mentioned that I was proud to be an American citizen, and someone chimed in immediately with something along the lines of "So why ohioBRIT"? I have since also found that my old name points me out as being European, and in a negative way more often than I would like.

From this day forth I will be an undercover European to any other noobs that don't know me yet. I will be a secret American Englishman. I will lurk in the shadows and hide my nasty socialistic european tendancies until I feel it necessary to reveal my true identity.

If anyone sees a telephone booth going cheap on ebay, please give me a heads up. I need one for sudden costume changes!

Alright, you can have your name change but you need to keep your avatar the same so I still know it's you.

Wow a Brit that claims to be part of Europe. Amazing... Astounding even.

I don't know. Wouldn't it simply be second nature to spell "color" and "favorite" with a U? You'd give yourself away (though some might think you're Canadian, and wouldn't that frost your feathers).

OK...but you can't change your pic though....I'm too old and addled to keep all these name/picture thingys straight..

I have no reason to post this phonebooth pic...except it has hookers in it. (And the one in front kinda looks like the woman I'm dating.)
