My nickname stems from my please of being an anon on the Internet. Not for any legal reasons but the Internet can cause utter madness in people which I've seen countless times so I just sit from the confines of my keyboard and mouse, smile, and watch.

No I'm not crazy, I'm just well aware of what the Internet can do.

spain treated puerto rico with less respect than cuba due to its size for sugar output.
they could care less about puerto rico back then... once gold was drained.. dump it.
(columbus is a perfect example.. he was jailed by the queen)

I was getting tired of "Sorry, this name is already taken." or some variation thereof. I haven't seen that yet with "instant idiot." Also, I like being able to say "Just add water!" randomly.

I was until very recently known as q64ceo

 

I switched to this because, well, I had been using q64ceo since 2001. 

 

Felt like I needed a refresh.

 

My new name, ameris_cyning, comes from an online game named Cybernations. 

 

In 2006, my user name was King Ameris of Ameris. In 2011, it changed to ameris_cyning to reflect my Anglo-Saxon love. Cyning is an Old English word meaning King. It is related to German Konig and Dutch Koning. A northern variant, influenced by Old Norse, became the modern English King.
