Re: What's behing your DB nickname?

Hey there all ! .. nice thread .. thanks Pez .. :)

There is a clear side of my nick (adolphin) .. no? .. a-dolphin, just one, an average one among many special others -deeperblue has many high quality "Dolphins" actually.. :)

Now the other side, is that my actual name is Adel (could be spelled Adol as well in some local accents) so it will be Adol = Adel + Phin = fin, yes, that's the monofin that helps me be the dolphin I am .. :D

Re: What's behing your DB nickname?

hey all, thought i'd pop-in and contribute... a giant marine snail is found along the south african coast going by the local name alikreukel. we abbreviate it sometimes as alikrik or akrikel. collecting these was a favourite habit when i was young and i still enjoy eating this 'poor man's food'. i feel it keeps me tied to my community, in a way. i have a manual mincer which i use to mince the meat and make 'frikkadels'or pattys. very yummy! pic attached of me getting some. i usually collect then after a spearfishing session and on my way out the water

Re: What's behing your DB nickname?

Well I was in a film called 'Gladiator', it did alright in the cinemas. I liked my characters name so much I have adopted it. I have let myself go a bit since the film but i'm still handy with a sword.

Re: What's behing your DB nickname?

Somehow I got the nickname in college for my tendency to crash pool parties in my Speedo. I guess I have no shame. And definitely no camel-toe. ;)

Re: What's behing your DB nickname?

I had a girlfriend who's young son used to watch a claymation superhero show. In the show one of the characters was stinkydiver(who would exit to the rescue by means of flushing himself down the toilet). One day as I was leaving on a dive he saw my gear and asked if I was stinkydiving and led me to the toilet. So it was only natural I was to be forevermore "STINKY DIVER"
