I'm into military history and strategy and war games focusing on the Second World War, and Paul Huaser was a the only German General (that I know of) that defied one of Hitler's explicit orders to not retreat, after being cut off and surrounded by the Russians and was not removed from command, court marshaled, or executed. As a General, he led on the front lines and was wounded twice in battle. He had guts! (Even though he fought for an evil and twisted regime).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Hausser#WWII

He was a key leader in the largest tank battle in history.

Ok enough history for today heh.

Hey anybody up for a game of Close Combat 3?

TJ jeff

seems like a pretty normal pen name - but it holds deep significance to me

Yes - Jeff is my real name - but... - you'll notice that in my pen name it is not capitalized - it's a small j to signify the kid I once was - the kid still inside of me... - TJ is my initials reversed - to signify the boy who grew into a man (capitals next to uncapitalized - it's visualization thing) so backwards of the way life should of been...

Hauser - I'm always up for a game \:\)

I spent eight years of my childhood in Texas, then my family moved to Colorado in 1978. Mine is a bit of a misnomer, in that if a person is from there, how can they be former-there? So I don't claim to be a Texan, yet after the move this one kid in school took to calling me Tex. Another aspect of the "Former" part of the name is the ugly past I was leaving behind in Texas.

Brokehearted,

Mine is from cosmology. The singularity is (gravitational singularity) roughly a reference to a black hole. It is were quantities become infinite. Once light crosses the event horizon and into the singularity the gravity becomes so strong that visible light cannot escape. That's where I always imagine myself existing. In a place where gravity is crushing me and no one can see what is happening to me.

Now that I read what I've just written it sounds pretty sad. But there you have it.

Oh yea, the lost and found part. Steven Hawking and some other notable cosmologists have debated whether or not particle information is lost after it crosses the event horizon. Without boring everyone, the debate seems to go from information lost to information found. It's called the information paradox. This probably makes no sense, but I just really like black holes.

Hey EGL! There is nothing wrong with using your initials for a penname.

AK because my first name is Andrei, and because my nickname in my family growing up was 'karova' (which means 'cow') because I was a fat baby. Even grown up and not fat, my sisters still call me 'karova' as much as my real name. So I was going to register here as 'Andreikarova' and I could not register. We gone through the web person at the time, because it would not let me register at all. He must of think that is my real name, because he register me as 'ak' instead.

Brokenhearted,

My pen name "BelievesIn143" comes from a lifelong friend I have that used to write me and a group of our friends letters all the time and sign them 143, standing for I Love You (1 letter, 4 letters, 3 letters). She is very creative and we always thought it was really cool.

It took me several months of reading everyone's posts to register for the site. When I finally got the nerve, using this name just seemed like the thing to do. Also, I still believe in love and that these 3 words can conquer all, if the people saying them really mean it and put actions behind them.

Thanks for posting this question. I've wondered the same thing.
B143
