5 Questions about Chris

Most frequent questions and answers

I was born in 1976 so when I last checked that made me 44.

Yes – I was born in Fraserburgh in Scotland, so I claim myself to be Scottish even though I only lived there for 2 months – To caveat that my mother and her side of the family are Scottish so it is not a totally wild claim.

  1. After 2 months on this earth, my parents whisked me away to the Far East to a place called Brunei, where my father had obtained a teaching post at a technical college. We lived out there for six years and both of my brothers were born out there. At the age of six, we move back to the UK where I grew up in Wrexham North Wales

Why

KIFF

I often use Kiff or Kiff76 as my worldwide web username.

Here are five very plausible reasons why I use Kiff, I will let you determine which is correct:

  • I was the inspiration for Matt Groening character Ltn Kif Kroker
  • I once met a South African surfer  and he said: “man your so Kiff.” Kiff being south African surfer slang for ‘cool’.
  • Kiff is a word that is derived from the Afrikaans word for poison,`gif’. This was used by coastal pot smokers to describe a strain of natural skunk that is called Durban Poison Gifs. The word evolved into kiff, amongst English speaking Natalians describing anything that is bad or wicked or simply the best. I am simply the best
  • Kiff is an American term for the THC crystals often found on a properly cured high-quality marijuana plant. These buds are ground, the kiff sifted through a mesh and then it is pressed into hashish with a pollen press. I was working with an American who thought I was so high quality that she called me Kiff
  • When I was little I could not say, Christopher, I said Kiffiffer and it stuck as a family name of Kiff.
