So since my gamer tag has been mentioned a few times I thought I'd post the story behind the name.

 

March 2013 I had an accident at home while trying to open a window. The window was stuck and I stupidly pushed on the glass pane to open it and the glass being old shattered. My hand went through and sliced 4/5 tendons down to the bone. Zell then drove me to the hospital where I worked at the time and I was treated. 6 months of therapy and some cool gadgets later I was left with a gnarly scar on my right hand that somewhat resembles a scythe or an anchor (Or whatever you see in it).

 

Then when I finally returned to full duty at work the first night back was not pleasant and a patient I was helping with ended up dying suddenly. The ER staff, being the sick sadistic people we are, made the joke that it was because of the scythe scar on my hand and thus Reaper's Hand was born. Since then I've had all my gamer tags changed to resemble it just for shits and grins.

 

Hope this gives people some insight to my macabre name. Despite the doom and gloom of it, I really don't care its just another part of my rich history and I just treat glass as my natural enemy now. Even in Minecraft. 

 

 Cheers   =)

 

Reaper's Hand lol

That looks like it was really painful.  I have a few good scars to show off but kinda glad it's nothing like those.   But, I it makes for an awesome name though... I'll be honest I'm a slightly jealous of that part.
