I started out as an automotive painter (hence my avatar wearing a respirator), now I paint multimillion dollar construction equipment (if you're familiar with the trapped miners from Chile in 2010, my company built the machines that found and dug them out).
But apparently I am very good and fast and my job. One day a coworker came to me and said I move so fast in the paint booth, I look like a ninja. Plus the protective equipment I have to wear looks kinda ninja-ish.

I got the nickname Sputnik in high school, we were watching the movie October Sky in science class, I made a stupid comment and someone called me Sputnik. It only stuck with 2 people and one of them actually still calls me that rather than use my name.... 7 years later.

I don't mind it, it sure helps out when you need to pick a username.

If anyone called me "Princess" I would put a stop to that immediately.

I could of sworn there was a thread like this one already?

Anyways, it seems all of the user names that I like and try for always seem to be taken, no matter how stupid/immature I attempt to go with. Now I just go with Kaido which is the last five letters of my first name.

I chose my user name because it was the only one not taken when I joined here.

Curious to know what type of rigs you're on. Stationary rigs or mobile?
