    What does your screen name mean?

    I'm curious as to what some of your screen names mean. Some are obvious, but some are not. I'll start with mine - my nickname and the first gun I owned (replaced it with a 1911 for carry).

    Talking I'm REALLY curious about a few forum names myself.

    My CombatCarry.com name
    Search: Q K Shooting or Quick Kill Shooting or Instinctive or Point shooting on the web.
    "Q" meaning Quick - Kill Meaning in a "Not Slow" or quite rapid manner.

    Tangle - my dog's name - she's a full blooded CLP (Cute Little Pest). I named her Tangle because when I first got her she kept her leash or herself tangled in my feet. I use her name as a reminder of a loyal and faithful friend.

    I pulled my name from the title of one of the funniest movies I've ever seen:

    I chose mine because once upon a time when I was stationed in SoCal I had a longboard & a wetsuit. My best friend had the '57 Nomad! Friends & I spent every spare moment at the beach.....Surf's UP! Two bottles of Strawberry Hill was a big night around the fire.

    Then I got married, reenlisted, became conscious of my status as a "Career Oriented Marine", had kids....it was all downhill from there.

    Despite my many yrs in military service, there stiil beats the heart of a footloose and fancy-free nonconformist 16 yr old in there....somewhere!

    Ahhh - funny - Dirkster I was also gonna other day post this very question! It crops up on most boards and is always interesting. I assume you are in fact Dirk.

    Mine is totally transparent - except wildly out of date!! When I joined THR in Jan 2003 soon after its inception in late 2002 - I did indeed use my P95 as daily carry. I should then have transmogrified thru M85Carry, SP-101Carry, M28Carry, BHPCarry - up to now being SIGCarry or 226STCarry or such!

    QK - I had wondered on yours - nice to know the rationale. I had wondered if perhaps your name was Quentin Kaboom or similar

    A few I hope will post yet ... Bumper - what made you choose yours?

    Last I heard in '73 the Nomad made it back to PA when Petey's hitch in the Marines was up.

    Lost track of him after that. Darn shame!

    I made a thread explaining mine but it was while back. Search can't find it.

    Euclid was a Greek mathmatician who lived from about 325 BC to 265 BC. Basically the quick version is that there is Euclidean geometry and non Euclidean geometry. In Euclidean geometry one assumes that one and only one line can be drawn through a point parallel to a given line.

    Euclid also used a series of "common notions" or axioms in his arguments such as this:

    Things which are equal to the same thing are equal to each other.
    Of course today we'd call that the transitive property.

    He's my favorite mathematician because his work explores the logic of every day life. He also pioneered the idea of an objective proof, that is a way to prove a statement with irrefutable, airtight logic.

    Of course one of the quandaries his work presents is how hard it truly is sometimes to make a valid and logical argument.

    The other interesting facet of his work is that Euclid assumed space was homogenous and that points in space do in fact actually exist. There is no way to prove or disprove these beliefs but I agree with Euclid's view of the universe if for no other reason then it seems self evident to me that his basic assumptions are quite necessary in order to find any meaning in the universe at all.

    Of course Euclid's work was expanded on and completed in the 1800s and we've created lots of non Euclidean geometry over the centuries too.

    It's long been debated whether or not the universe we live in is actually Euclidean because of the theory that space is curved, etc. However I believe that it is because on the practical every day level, you could not do something as simple as frame a house without assuming that all right angles are equal to each other. While it's true that we could ignore some of the self evident axioms that define Euclid's work, it creates a system which is not terribly useful in many contexts and in the end we always come back to Euclidean geometry.

    That's the same way I look at politics and life in general. Some things are self evident truths that we cannot prove or disprove them, but to function we have to abide by them anyway or else we'd accomplish nothing.

    In the context of this forum, in any situation save for a deafeatist fantasy, I am safer and more prepared armed than I am unarmed whether or not any danger is apparent. That's my personal axiom. I can't objectively prove with hard numbers that I'm safer or less safe when I compare being armed to being unarmed.

    However on the intuitive level, an unarmed person cannot address many threats than an armed person can. Therefore I am better off armed because being armed covers more contingencies than being unarmed.

    My second axiom is that this basic condition must apply to all people if it applies to me. And we go from there...
