And Barbwire @Barbwire, do you have an interest in fencing materials?
Barbwire evolved from my last name. In highschool, a kid who was a friend of my friends invited me over his house but couldn't remember my last name, so he said "when is that barbwire kid coming over" and it evolved from there into wire, wi and wisack. pretty much nobody calls me my first name but my immediate family

all of my friends and their parents just call me wire

I suppose mine doesn't really need an explanation. Previous name came from an object/land in Guild Wars, the Eye of Janthir.

In typical kid fashion I listened to Metallica with my dad because I wanted to be just like him. It turns out I have a fanatical addiction and far surpassed what songs he introduced to me (I fondly remember watching the Enter Sandman music vid on VH1 every single morning). I still think to myself every day about how much I want him to hang out with me and listen to their famous tracks. Maybe one day. My avatar is the album cover for Beyond Magnetic because I think it looks pretty bad ass.
