I posted before, but today I rearranged my walls somewhat (no school :) )so I have pictures now.

Image
one wall
That's the Electromagnetic Spectrum comic printed below an actual electromagnetic spectrum poster, which I have been wanting to happen ever since I saw that comic.

Image
other wall. Just because the camera was already out.

I have a map of the world, a Ford GT poster, a Led Zeppelin poster, and a huge blue print of a P-38 Lightning all hanging in my room.

I have a big periodic table of elements, like you'd find in a high school science classroom. It's mid-1980s, and includes proposed names for elements up to 104 (including both American and Soviet proposals). Kind of fun.

I have a big four-page fold-out ad from the launch of the Nissan 240SX in 1989, and a HUGE banner for Bridgestone tires featuring a Nissan Skyline GT-R. Neither of these are hanging, because my wife wasn't big on the garage-chic look of my old apartment. When we get a house with an actual garage, these are going back up.

My parents framed a USGS map of my hometown, then gave it to me when they redecorated the room it was in. It's hanging in my dining room, sometimes I just sort of zone out staring at it while eating.

It's not a poster, but I have an actual silk Japanese flag from WW2. It's signed with hundreds of names. I don't know how Japanese military units were arranged at that time, but a nontrivial percentage of the names have the same family name (西山, Nishiyama). A few of the names have the given name in Katakana, and a lot of them seem to be obviously women's names (the given name ends in 子). My grandfather brought it home from the war, and it sat in the envelope the US Army packed it in (CONTENTS: ONE JAP FLAG) for almost 60 years before we found it and had it set in a proper archival-quality frame.

I have a small Mars Volta poster, a small Converge poster, one for The Fountain, one for Babel, I had one for Children of Men but it fell down, had one for James Bond but I gave it to my girlfriend (when she was still my girlfriend), and I have one for Thank You for Smoking sitting around that I'm too lazy to put up, along with various posters I have no intention of posting (I used to work at a movie theater, I got a lot for free).

I have four, same-shaped, black and white posters of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Babe Ruth, and Pete Sampras. They look pretty awesome together.

Also, a large-ish RHCP poster.

I have a giant 100x100 multiplication table on my wall, that I made in Excel. It uses a 2x5 grid of printer paper sheets.

I made it a good many years ago as a joke when you weren't allowed to use calculators for math homework, but you could use a multiplication table. The teacher never actually specified a size limit. :)
I never actually used it to cheat, because by the time it takes to find one tiny number out of 10,000, you could have done it by hand with the standard memorized 12x12.

Every month, I rasterbate myself a custom callender (I have an odd dating system) which is also a poster. The callender is just the size of one standard piece of paper; the poster is 3 x 5 sheets. This month I have a 1950s-style pinup girl. Last month, it was eight 8-Bit Theater comics. Next month will be the Hubble Deep Field. I plan to continue, in that fashion, until I reach a poison dart frog on a banana leaf, then I'll start over rather than continue, because, as everyone knows, it's all downhill from that point.
I have signitures disabled. If you do, too...you can't read this, so nevermind >_>

I've got pictures from a calender on my wall, the pictures are these ones.

I tried to find a "Big Brother is Watching You" style poster, but couldn't find much.

In the poster department, I have a Trout of North America poster signed by James Prosek on the inside of my door and on the outside of the door a little mini "fly fishing only-catch and release" poster of the sort seen on streams.

Man, you know a thread is old when MFHodge posted in it.

I've got all six Star Wars posters, although I don't know why I have the new trilogy, completism I suppose. I also have a custom frame that has this:

and a signed Suburban Legends poster with the ticket and Streetlight Manifesto's set list from the tour they played together, I love it so much.

Wow. A lot of you guys have posters. I have absolutely nothing hanging on my walls. No posters, no pictures, no nothing.

Dunno, maybe I'm weird like that.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

I don't really have any posters, I did have in first year, but now I live in a student house, rather than halls, I'm allowed to hammer nails into the wall and hang my framed photos and such, much better.

We did have the centerfold of some random jazz-mag* stuck up in our kitchen, with a picture of one of my housemates lecturer's faces glued over the woman's genitals, and a significant quantity of mashed potato mixed with chocolate milkshake artfully smeared on in a manner unsettlingly reminiscent of a certain shock video... Unfortunately our landlord removed it when he was showing the house to the next set of tenants.

I have
A signed print of the electromagnetic spectrum comic
A signed drawing of Pintsize by Jeph Jacques
A signed drawing of a dinosaur by Ryan North
A painting of a dinosaur
Pennants from the Giants, the Expos, the Red Sox, the A's, the Angels, the Phillies, and the Rockies, all teams I've been to the stadiums of.
2 old license plates that I like
A bulletin board with my 200 pin collection
A photograph of my grandfather flying his jolly green rescue helicopter in vietnam
4 drawings of pokemon by my sister
A quilt of the american flag by my mom
A "Ted's Creamy Root Bear" metal sign, referring to Ted Williams
and a wooden Australian ornament thingy my dad got when he lived in Australia when he was 7.
Almost all of this is about the size of a letter size sheet of paper, so I have tons of space. I want a Marx Brothers poster.

I have one poster so far. I don't really care that much goes on my walls, I don't spend that much time looking at them. But this one pleases me and reminds me of better times.

If I could, I would like a large poster of this or this.

*looks around* No posters at all at the moment, thought I do own a tree of life and the navigationally crucial map of the Internet. Something ought to be done; Despite my occasional efforts my room is more or less a box in which I put my stuff which won't fit anywhere else and myself.

A lot of educational supply stores have decent ones, with symbol, name, number, and sometimes weight. For a nice lab-style table, you can't beat Sargent Welch: http://sargentwelch.com/periodic-tables/c/4823/

For pure eye-poppyness, though, you gotta get a Theodore Grey poster: http://theodoregray.com/periodictable/P ... index.html

Absolutely gorgeous color images of every element it's possible to get a sample of, and nice photographs of the namesakes of the others. As above, I've got one in my room so it's the first thing you see as you enter.
