Ignoscant means forgiveness; or pardon in Latin. (relevant)
It reminds me every time I type it in that making a mistake is human.

I used to train at a shotokan/jjj dojo. During sparring one day the sensei started calling me bombom. No idea why. Soon everyone there started using the nickname, it spread from there. I even used bombom as my dj name when I had a show on college radio several years ago.

My original screen name was boring so I wanted something "cool" when I signed up for Sociocide but all I kept getting was "This username is already taken, try whatever01" and similar. I started mixing random words and Cake of Doom was born.
It was a close one between that and Kendo Soapsud.Train hard, fight easy.

One day why fooling around in the pc repair lab where I worked I found a roll of black plastic tubing that fitted me perfectly as a turban.
I donned it, climbed over one of the worktops and exclaimed to my collegues:
"All bow down to Zargor, the Dark Dominator of the Galaxy"
The heathens greeted me with "Oh no he's doing drugs again" and disrespectfully flung several objects in my direction but the name sticked on and since then when **** gets serious Zargor enters the scene.
I believe I still have a memorable pic of that somewhere...

When I played rugby in college there were two of us with the same name. And both of us played in the pack. I played prop and he played lock. So it got confusing. We were doing tackle drills on day and I laid out one of the other players. Then we were pushing the sled around and my side of the sled was being pushed harder because I wasn't a lazy ass hole. So the coach asked the pack if one side was a bunch of pussies or if I was just Diesel. They looked around for a second and proclamed that I was Diesel. They didn't want to admit that they were being pussies. So from then on coach called me Diesel. TKE is the fraturnity I was in. So that became my user name in college and I've used it since.
