I never underestimate the power of geekdom and their intricate knowledge of government procedures. Take one Andreas Jankov for instance. He found out you can legally change your name.
bus driver/film fan Andreas Jankov has officially changed his name to Julius Andreas Gimli Arn MacGyver Chewbacka Highlander Elessar-Jankov.
“I wanted to show that it is possible to be serious and at the same time take the name you like,” said Jankov. “I wanted to see how far I could take it with respect to the number of names. I started thinking about this three years ago and it was approved in January this year.”
Yes, because that was the first thing I thought when I saw this champion of the socially awkward. He is serious. If his name was just something like Julius Andreas Gimli Arn MacGyver Chewbacka Highlander Elessar-Jankov, then I could REALLY take him seriously!
And yes, he did spell Chewbacca wrong. GeekFail
This is a lesson to you all… just like some tattoos, some things are only cool in theory. Some things that you think are cool in theory are not even that.
I think there is a public service message in this somewhere.
