My name is I rule backwards. I use neostorm99 a lot as well as Ziefer_D which have no real meaning.

The I rule backwards came from a post it that was left on my desk, with a hand drawn picture of strong bad telling me that he rules, when I was trying to come up with a new name.

I think it sounds neat, albeit a bit feminine now that I have had time to reflect on it.

On my 18th birthday, a bunch of my friends took me to a strip club. I had never been to one obviously. So, for the next hour or so, they decided to buy me lapdances with the bustiest women in the club. I'm talking comicbook breasts, like Maxi Mounds and Chelsea Charms boobs. (google them if you don't know what they look like) - Then about an hour into this fiasco, some guy we didn't know just blurted out "What are you guys trying to do to the kid? Turn him into some kinda big tit freak?" So from then on people kept calling me bigtitfreak. I'm convinced in college some people didn't know my name, they just called me that. So btf is short for bigtitfreak. 1980 is the year I was born. Voila btf1980.

The name of this character I draw:



Who five years later became this character (who was renamed):



Strife doesn't actually come from Cloud Strife, but Elly Strife, a character from a flash cartoon called Bonus Stage. So (s)he's named after Cloud only by proxy.

So anyway...


On July 4th, 1987, after the fireworks finished, my mom went into labor. Begging my dad to drive to the nearest hospital five miles away. My father, always knowing best, reassured her with obstinate resolve that we could get to our regular hospital in Miami, 30 miles away, no problem.

We almost made it.

The all-american classic that became my delivery room was a Buick Skyhawk.

Fine machine. They stopped making them in 1989- that is to say, well before I had any conception of what it meant to me. Anyway, whenever I actually was told this story, it was early enough in my life that it began a longtime fascination with hawks and all birds of prey in general.

My favorite is the Red-tailed Hawk, that's

^that one

They are remarkable creatures. One of the only other species to demonstrate what we conceive of as "love." They're typically monogamous and may stay with their mates for their entire lives, sometimes fighting and even dying to protect one another. They are the best hunters for falconry, as well. Basically friendly (as far as birds that can pretty much kill you if they feel like it go), and diving, they can hit 130mph, a speed exceeded only by their also totally awesome relative the Peregrine Falcon, the fastest animal on earth.

Anyway... that's the story of how I was born.

Er. And my username.

About a year ago (maybe a little more) I decided I was bored with all my old usernames and wanted something new and unique, which others would not have so I could use on any and every site which I signed up for.

I thought for a long time...My initials are G.W., and some of my friends call me "GeeDuhb." I though "wow, that is unique and sounds cool." I fooled around with the spelling for a while (I wanted something spelled phonetically, so little 12 year olds on Live would have less of a chance of botching it) and came up with this one. I then changed my XBL gamertag to it, and when I got my PS3, I made that my PSN nick.

So hi, I'm GeeDuhb. :D
