    Cool Should I change my username?

    I've been considering changing my username lately, to something other than just "Memphis". I mean, I probably won't be in Memphis forever, probably won't be with Memphis forever, and I think I should distance myself a little from the name "Memphis" by itself, afterall, we do have a large crime rate, and if I went to work for say Germantown, Knoxville, or some other city, "Memphis" wouldn't fit anymore right?

    Anyone, discuss... discuss... What are your thoughts?

    For reference: What the hell is up with Memphis?



    I like "MemphisBlue"

    you're all welcome to offer your own ideas...

    Do you feel like a "Memphis?"

    I think it's original meaning is "established in perfection"

    It's weird how during the period of time I was determining what I would want the poll options to be, the thread got posted without a poll, and already has responses. That's kinda weird.

    Anyway, I got rid of the poll, cause "MemphisBlue" is the only username I can think of that I like.

    I have other usernames on other websites, my username on Officer.com I absolutely hate, and the other usernames I have are supportive of the vehicle I own, which I don't feel suits here like it does on automotive forums.

    Memphis, even if I leave her, I'll still forever consider myself a Memphian, and Memphis my home. No matter how bad the crime rate gets.

    Blue is my favorite color, the color of Law Enforcement, and Memphis is home of "The Blues", so I think MemphisBlue suits well.

    Thoughts?

    Talking

    Thanks for the props in your opening..........I think. I didn't mean for you to change your name or even move or quit or do a school shooting or hold the ghost of Elvis hostage in exchange for a lifetime supply of Kit-Kats. Calm down, hero. It's just a name. Hell, I have a sister named................never mind. Anyway, here are a few that I thought of:

    MemphisBlue99 (blue99 is current gang slang for police, "five-o" is old school)
    KatrinaSurvivor99
    FuckKatrina
    FTCIM (Fuck The Crime In Memphis)
    MSblue99 (Memphis Survivor: Police)
    BTFU (Back The Fuck Up!)
    StreetWarrior
    STAB (Say That Again Bitch!)

    I like MemphisBlue99.

    I'm sure were all call you "Memphis" for short.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
