    I grew up speaking the clicking whistling language of Saharan Tanzania. My best friend in 3rd grade was named jhtvj, but his best friends called him jlprk. He would fight you if you called him jhtvj, which was a snob's name.

    My last name is Pruner. I was a teenager once with friends. Hence the sophomoric nickname.

    My first email address I ever made was trailblazer18 at yahoo. Trailblazer for obvious reasons and 18 because that was my age at the time. Since then, I have used trailblazer18 as my sign in name or user name for many things.

    My failed band was Here Come Dots.
    Handclap Problematic came from the first spam email that I ever read. The body of the email was complete alphabet soup for 4 paragraphs. Just garbage like "ffftudhj j bgdjjbbd .shhdhhd". But right in the middle randomly was handclap problematic. They were the only legible words in a sea of garbage. I liked that idea.

    I assumed prunetang was someone who liked to bang 80-yr-olds or a drink for geriatric astronauts.

    Mine came from a pool league I played in. I'm legally blind I lost my eye sight at 29 from an accident I was in 20 yrs before.

    I still played pool on league around Portland. So the nickname stuck.

    Just because a mod is from NJ should not have any influence on the upstanding character and humble spirit I display
