QUOTE(Cervo @ Apr 4 2007, 02:10) *
the first nickname that I remember I used was "Badger", because the translation in french is not only an animal but also actually an insult (blaireau), something like "asshole", that we used to shout between friends in college, and it was funny to convert it to the english version.

Then I used Cervo or Cervomix (like on BI forums), again from an insult that I used with my friends, we used to tell to each other "you are a brain, aren't you?", which means that you are REALLY dumb (french : t'est un cerveau toi, pas vrai?"), with the "mix" added at the end to make a double joke, first to make the phonetic of "brain mixed" and also a joke in french to say "brain vomit". So basically my nickname comes from a crazy insult between crazy people.

Which is funny is once I started to get involved into OFP community and then working on OFP.info and taking charge of it, some french people believed that it was an arrogant or egocentric nickname!

0_o the day Cervo is down on all fours bouncing around my dreams wearing a puppy outfit will be the day i take my aeg MP5 to my head. rofl.gif tongue.gif

Contrary to popular belief im not Jonathan Pryce or a multi billionaire with my own global media empire. My real name isnt Elliot Carver and im not in my late 40's.

My nickname came about 4 years ago in a boring IT lecture when my mates and i were all busy hacking into the college servers to piss off the techies as per the norm (we never got in but we did nearly set off a home made EMP device). Apparently, if u cover my hair with gray hair spray and stick me in a suit i look like Elliot Carver...Well i did 4 years ago anyways lol. The name stuck. Carver is my only nick and i use it all over from here to Airsoft. Carver to my dude friends and Elliot to my lady friends bwhaha. Apparently i have the same ruthless swager as Carver and use money to much to get what i want >< ... im a nice dude really .... lol

I bet tho im the only one with my own Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elliot_Carver, a lego figure http://static.flickr.com/41/103486160_a7d0e3e8c9_o.jpg, an action doll http://216.97.102.200/whatsnew/bond2.jpg and countless fan sites biggrin.gif

rock on dudes,
carver

I'm not going to comment on that.

(Able readers will note that this is a lie... or is it a time paradox!?)

Mine came from the Colossus of Rhodes. I found the word 'Colossus' kinda cool, which means "anything colossal, gigantic, or very powerful. " happy.gif
