Basically, it's just a combination of two Mogwai song titles: "I am not Batman" except with the "am not" replaced with "amn't" which is from another song title, "Moses? I Amn't". Apparently the contraction "amn't" is used by kids in Scotland, or at least certain parts of Scotland. I dunno...having numbers in your user name is always something that bugged me. I like Mogwai but I'm not going to make my name "Mogwai836" or something. Anyway, I think it was when I was trying to make a new AIM screen name when I originally came up with it and it wasn't taken. It's never taken anywhere, so I use it for just about everything.
Alternate story for those disappointed by the previous account: One time I was hanging out in New York when I saw a girl getting mugged by a bunch of thugs. I used the gadgets I had on me and my superior martial arts skills to dispatch the villains, retrieve her purse and save the day. She exclaimed, "gee, mister, you're like Batman or something!" I just said, "I amn't Batman" and faded into the night. My friends have been calling me "iamntbatman" ever since.
I was wondering if it had something to do with Mogwai!
and I like your alternate story. :D
