Wow, what a coincidence! That's how I picked mine, too. Seems like everyone's favorite response to me is, "Gee, Bob ..... "wolram said:Easy say it backwards.
Brilliant! I never noticed that before.wolram said:Easy say it backwards.

Since I had no armadillo knuckles, I used a bunch of old prescription pills I had at the back of the medicine cabinet, and since the last "Knuckle Man" died in 1957, I pulled a half sleeping, homeless man out of his cardboard and rag shelter on B-Street and told him to utter the first sounds that occured to him upon seeing the pills land, and I carefully recorded each answer on the sidewalk in chalk. Then I left.
Later that day, I returned to see which of the names had been scuffed away by the feet of passersby, and which hadn't. That was a couple/three years ago now, so I don't remember anymore which one was left.

Echo 6 Sierra said:Boilerplate military call sign phonetically composed of "E" for Enlisted, "6" for rank of Staff Sergeant, and "S" for my last initial. My last OIC gave himself the callsign "Il Duce" because he fancied himself somewhat. And yes, in the military, giving yourself a callsign is the same as civilians giving themselves a nickname, it just dosen't work. He was no leader.
Clearly, I "tossed" the old pills at the first opportunity, and the homeless man is now honored to be under the impression he is a "Knckle Man" and leader of the Secret Armadillo Society. Did wonders for his self-esteem.wolram said:Zooby, you should not keep old pills about, and how could you be so cruel
to that homeless man :surprised
