My user name, "Kedamono" was the one I chose for the old Genie network back in the '80s. At the time, I wanted to use my nickname, Animal, as my user name. But when I tried to use it, I was told it was in use and I could Animal341 or some such number. I didn't care for that, so I grabbed my Japanese to English pocket dictionary and found "Kedamono: Beast or animal" so I picked that. I've been lucky in that it's been a fairly unique username and only recently have I run into at least two other people who use it. 

Now, my nickname Animal came from how I acted back then, and well, it sort of fit. I could also do a decent impression of that Muppet if I wanted to.

[Error: unknown template qotd] People will think I'm insane for saying this, but first season Lost In Space wasn't a bad show. It was still adult with some humor, and it hadn't been kiddie-fied by the network. It was some serious Sci Fi, and Irwin Allen can rest assured he did some good work. What most people remember are the second and third season which weren't as good, especially third season. Especially the Great Vegetable Rebellion. Especially that.

My second favorite is a classic of Saturday Morning Television: Jonny Quest
Now there was an action adventure show, with mad science and good guy scientists! And it was show where people got killed. It never scarred me, and made me appreciate how dangerous such things could be. It also was a good counterpoint to the cartoon violence in the Bugs Bunny Show. The scariest episode was the Invisible Monster and the coolest, in my opinion, was The Robot Spy. I mean, everyone needs a walking eye!

[Error: unknown template qotd]At the time when this was possible, i.e. when I was still in the armed forces, I hate to say I'd be sorely tempted to mistreat the prisoners. That would be the hardest part of the job.

Having said that, in the intervening 25 years I've grown up and matured and these days I'd find it hard to take the job at all. I've opposed everything that happened to Iraq from the start, nothing would convince me to be a guard at Gitmo...
