    I go by many names on the interwebs. On most forums I go by hondaprelude, which doesn't really have a interesting backstory. However, I go by owldel elsewhere, which is the result of a re-captcha while making a email account a while back.

    I thought of the name when I was 12 and I was too lazy to come up with a new one when I made the account so now I'm stuck with it. Also I forgot the last 2 numbers because I wasn't paying attention when I typed it out.

    I got my nick from the times when IRC was popular, around 95/96.
    I needed a nickname that wasn't occupied all the time on the servers i was using at the time, so it became FunkyHunk since it was very unlikely anyone would choose it.
    Stayed with me ever since.

    Back in the day, when Xbox 360 was first released.

    I remember my mum buying me one, I was so stoked and wanted to play online, when it come to choosing a username, I typed "Sam", it said it was in use, so it gave me a list of suggested usernames, "DrowsySam" was the first one, I was too excited to care about what my name was so I picked that.

    It has stuck with me ever since..

    I have no memory of how I ended up with this name, it has nothing to do with my real life name lol
    When I came up with the name I was looking for a name to use on a Forum, so then I came up with this and I started using it everywhere :p
