I watched a documentary on DEA agents catching drug smugglers who were using home made submarines to smuggle the drugs.
The undercover agents call sign was "Nester" so i added Wayne Gretzky to make it usable.


Nothing to do with the year i was born or that dude in the Nintendo Power Mags.

I'm a well-dressed motherfucker and I, more or less, like to improve on myself and focus on family and other, more productive things, than women.

My username's story is pretty boring, but it have some fun unexpected effect in those site where value=unnamed instead of value=null, I had an infinite subscription on a site because of this.

Mr - I am a man
S - Surname begins with the letter S
I was literally wondering yours the other day, like did it mean missus or not. Cool. Yeah, my life is that empty right now lol

Mine comes from a brilliant short story called "Bartleby, The Scrivener". I had to read it for an exam and was low on time, so I just read the Wikipedia summary and somehow found it hilarious, so I read it after all and it fucking rocks.

Not much proud of my username. My full nickname is Saberyoko. Saber part was from Digimon "Saber" naming thing from some monsters(like Saberleomon, Saberdramon, etc). While Yoko cames from the term youkai. I was a silly kid back then. You see...shitty anime dumb stuff(used to watch a lot when I was a kid).

Nowadays I just use Saber. Though it not works much in my favor around my country. You see, Saber means "know" or "knowledge"...so most of time brazilian sites mocks my name as if I should know everything.

Most powerful weapon from an RPG in the fan-translated sequel to Retro Game Challenge. However, only the mage character with weak physical attack power can equip it.
