Chiral Anomaly

2019 March 22: Changed my username.

My original username (Dan Yand) was a pseudonym made from a permutation of some of the letters in my real name. I didn't put much thought into it when I created my Physics SE account, because I was only planning to ask one little question and then disappear forever... but my plans changed.

Now that I've decided to stay for a while, I can imagine situations where I might want to refer to a website where I use my actual real name, and then having a SE pseudonym that looks like a different real name would suddenly be awkward. To avoid that potential future awkwardness, I switched to a pseudonym that is more obviously pseudo.
