Chanced upon this thread for the first time today.

I had tried twice before getting lucky on third attempt with membership here. First 2 tries were with my normal login names. 3rd attempt was with the current handle. I came to this not because of the movie by same name, in fact I had not watched it till then. Its something I can relate to my profession, I'm an Orthopaedic Surgeon!

I believe you fix the bones, don't collect them. I would be scared to come to you when I have a bone problem, if you actually collect them

I wanted "torque" and since it was unavailable I made it "extreme_torque". In the hindsight I could have done better

Earlier, I tried registering with a different handle, Dorikin (Japanese for Drift King) but didn't get an approval. Then thought to keep my real identity, Ali- that's my last name and worked around it, came up with "aLY" that sounds similar.

I own a '04 Maruti Suzuki Alto and I'm very much attached to it emotionally. Hence the username.

So, my story is relatively simple. I was watching the animated movie "Shark Tale", with my 8 year old nephew. It's a real fun movie, with the main voiceovers by Will Smith, Angelina Jolie, about a vegetarian Shark. Must watch for both kids and adults.

Just after finishing received a disappointing mail for the 4th time, regarding my rejection as member to Team-BHP. I was disheartened, but then applied again.
I honestly had run out of usernames I generally use, and then it struck me to just use "sharktale". I literally thank them, cause then I was selected! Yayy!!

The Honda CBR Fire Blade 1000RR was a dream bike for me. Had always been a fan of this mean machine since my school days. Always wanted to own one in my favourite Black colour. Hence the name BLACKBLADE.

Anything and everything we discuss here will have pistons in common. So It's "PISTONS"

For me, it was fairly simple. My username has been the same has been the same across all online platforms I am on ever since I created my first email id. Makes things easy.
