|My username is a web handle that I have used for some time now (going on ten years now). If you run across a Scorpion451 in the rankings on an online game or in a forum, it might be me.(but don't assume it's me, because it might just be the 451st person to choose the name "scorpion" on that site. That goes double if it's a forum and you think I insulted you.)
One could say that my username is a reflection of my principals and personality. The name has two parts, both of which have a meaning for me. Scorpions are generally not agressive, but neither are they docile. Likewise, I do not seek conflict, but I will not passively back down from a challenge.
The 451 is purposefully chosen number, a nod toward the novel "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury. In my opinion, we are striding towards the world Ray Bradbury described; a world dominated by Political Correctness, where anything that could make someone "feel bad", is forbidden. This culminates in the outlawing of books, which are burned on sight. It is a world in which people seek escape from their problems in a world of flash, self-indulgence, and noise. We should not forget the lesson of Rome.
