Mine isn't original either. My real name is Benjamin Leclerc, but when I entered it to register on the forum, I had the drop the "c" because there were too many characters...

If I had known I was signing up to a fixed name, I would have changed it - but I'm stuck with it. How boring it makes me look....

Bobby Ewing

Now if someone shows up w/ the name "Bobby Ewing", we'll need to wonder if it's ...

- actually AltSaint making an oblique reference to Patrick Duffy or

- Dallasdiver making a slightly less oblique reference to his stomping grounds or

- A guy named Robert Ewing

Ah - but Ben, you forget that Papa Smurf is rather important around here and if you feed him enough alcohol he can be inclined to change names :D

Cannot confess to having put too much thought into my 'forum name'. The 'cape' part is obviously a reference as to where I live, as in CapeTown, and the Blue is not only for the sea...as you probably all thought :=)...but also for one of my first loves, the sky. Have only been freediving for a short time in comparison to my relationship with the sky, which began 25 years ago, and still continues. ( Skydiving and paragliding)

A naiad is a mythological female spirit of nature that lives in a lake, river, spring or fountain. Since I have spent a large part of my life sitting on the edge of ponds to watch the animals and plants in them (and bringing some of them home!) I thought it was a good name.

That was the funniest post I've seen in time ... well, maybe the UCB post was as funny, but they're both in the top 5 funniest posts I've seen here.

I only wish now that I had given the thread a slightly differnet title -- it seems to have sent Shaca down the wrong path ...

The wrong path???? How do you dare say Shaca is on the wrong path! We ought to give him a monument for being the world's leading promoter of human reproduction! Without his deep incisive analysis revealing the ultimate truth behind the illusion of daily human activities this world would be sparsely populated, unpolluted and with millions of fish in the seas! An awful place!!! Not to mention that there would only be six cardinal sins and so many millions of people would have no chance to feel guilty and therefore be free from the terrorism of certain religious interpretations?

How terribly dull....

go shaca go....to the rythm of the "shacaluga" of course.... :cool:


And as for my name:

Antediluvian Druids Revel In Absolute Naturalism

Now if you don't know how to interpret that don't worry, I don't either, just ask...er....Shaca! :D

Hey, I never knew there was a TV series!
I still have on my shelf two books from Richard Woodly about the man from Atlantis. I read them quite a few times between first and fifth grade! only about a year ago I realized they had also something to do with the inspiration of me becoming a freediver - filling my earier years with underwater dreams and fantasies...

PS: I'm also relieved to know you're not named AllSaints 'coz of the music group. ;)

Well, mine is simple, My name is Giovanni, so, when I'm on the pool training ( almost everynight), the new ones always ask my trainer " what does he do", " he has been there for a long time" "look, he is doing it without breathing", and the trainer answer " he is an Apneist", so, i guess that giovapnea is a good way to introduce my self!!!!.....jajaja;)
