Ever since I was a kid I was intent on being the best.

And you know what the best thing in the world is? Sliced Bread? Pornography? Post-orgasm bliss. Post-defecation relief? The feeling of nailing a 45 foot swish in the nick of time and winning your middle school basketball league. No, no, no, nay, ix-nay, zilch, wrong, and nuh-uh. It's the $2 bill.

There is nothing so extravagant, so delightfully enchanting, so exquisitely elegant that has ever been manufactured in the history of mankind, animalkind, plantkind, and venusflytrapkind as the two dollar bill. Two hundred pieces of symmetrical copper exchanged at the expense of a mere piece of paper. But it's not just a piece of paper.. it can afford you so many things in life. From a packet of Orbit gum, to two crunchy tacos, to a keychain to hold stupid sh!t into your backpack; the practical purpose of this tantalizing treasure goes above and beyond. A testament of privilege and surplus. Something so powerful, something so f*cking amazing that it had to be discontinued because it elicited inferiority complexes upon the peasants of America.

Wielded by the great Thomas Jefferson. Avid reader. Lover of the sexy ebony hunnies. Founding Father. Mr. Constitution. Mr. Louisiana Purchase. A man of excellence fighting for the common man.

Some people think the world revolves around them. But I think the world revolves around TJ. Consider me proud to simply be a moon, albeit a Titan, to the great Lord Thomas Jefferson and his great grandson.. Al Jefferson.

I got my idea while watching a Simpsons episode. I saw "El Duffo" and I thought to myself, I like pigs, why not ElPigto. ElPigfo did not sound good, so I went with "to" instead.

My name's Ryan. My now ex-girlfriend used to sometimes half-kiddingly call me RyPie. She heard another girl call me that one day though, so she decided to find something similar to RyPie but more unique and her own. She settled on another dessert - cake; so awkwardly, it was RyCake, which was later understandably shortened to Rake for the sake of brevity.

From there, Rake seemed to be an anonymous enough name to use for usernames and whatnot, so that's how we arrived here. The name has outlasted the woman. The numbers are my two jersey numbers: 22 and 4 (in honor of Joe Dumars).

Really? You learn something new everyday.

I was always under the impression that you were some huge ladies man who played basketball, taught school by day, and was balls-deep in some horny teenage schoolgirl's azz by night lol.

Rake being the Modern English old school term for playboy of course.

Plus I thought it was a cool, yet simple name. Been using it as a forum user name since about 1999.

I wanted an online ID to go by, and I decided to spell a word weird. It was initally Maniack when I used it, but that looked dumb so I took out the C.

Sadly it's used by other people

I've considered getting something better but I'm not sure.

My name is Rocco, those close to me call me Roc. The steady just comes from really being into rhythm and the music that has great beats like hip hop and soul. Plus, when people 'rock steady' they're usually noddin to the beat and feelin it.

As of late, I attempt to keep a level head and stay pretty chill keeping a steady mentality, despite that not being my nature since birth/childhood.

The 22 is because that was my number for hockey and has been my favorite number since I was like 4 because of this guy



Dino Ciccarelli, a badass hockey player who played for the Caps. He was really small, Italian and feisty just like me when I was a kid so I always loved his style and adopted the '22' as a personal number.


Edit: Stupid me lmao. The 22 I only use for my Twitter account. My bad

FX sitcom, but it's not my favorite show or anything. Whenever I make an account name, I usually just think of things that relates to what I'm doing at that time. I was watching the show prior to joining ISH, so I named after it without much thinking. My youtube account is named after the music I was listening to, my online poker account is named after the movie I watched right before, and one of the video game account I got a blowjob on that day, so I named it blewjob.

Mines simple. I just kinda copied my name from a football site (Philly_Phan) because all the other names I tried were taken.
