    I like planes, and I even had a mini-business in 5th grade drawing aircraft (traded pencils and stuff for drawings, it was actually pretty successful). My friend, who was the other person in the business, drew a plane called the Wrong Flyer. I liked the name Wrong Brothers, and it basically became my name for everything. Even several years later, it's still about the only username I use.

    I got the destroyer part from when I was playing rugby, that was my nickname. The numbers are from a random number generator as I needed numbers when I first used this nickname.

    For starters, my name is Nick. When I was a like 5 years old I was playing with my toy monster trucks and I was pretending they were going up an elevator to get on top of the coffee table. So I said 'nickorator going up!' as I lifted the truck up onto the table with my hand. My parents heard me and thought it was cute -_- But it stuck. My parents still call me that sometimes too. But ever since I got into gaming I've used that name for most of my major gaming usernames: BeamNG, Minecraft, Steam, YouTube, etc.

    Probably the most creative name on here: 14ramosr was the username that my school gave me about a decade ago. I didnt know what to use for a name on here, and I wanted to play the game as quick as possible so i pulled "14ramosr" out of my mind and typed it on here. Woo!

    When I was about 9 years old, I needed an username for a forum. I was supposed to use electricman because I had played Infamous recently. (Main character has electricity as a super-power.) I added an "o" to the end because electricman was already taken and I mispelled "electric". So yeah, eletricmano.

    (Also, OFF-TOPIC, but, umm, your gt 620 isnt powerful enough to even need 1.5 gb of VRAM, let alone 4gb, so yeah, your gpu is UNDERkill)

    'Smokey the Bear' I earned as a young teenager because I started smoking at a rather young age. From there I simplified it to 'Smokey' (which remains my alias) but it turns out that it's a very, VERY common name across the internet. So I meowed it a little bit. Meow.
