It just occurred to me, a few days ago, that my avatar is a faceless internet man.

Really? I thought it's more, well, creepy, than anything else.

Unless you usually find creepy faceless people comforting? If so, you might want to talk to someone about this. Hmm.

Yeah...I created my Avatar in one of those South Park creators. But I was really suprised at how well it worked. Because I`m usually wearing a Kilt, plus at the time I had short hair, with two neon red Horns on the Front. But somehow the Programmers thought of a Freak like me. :mrgreen:

Personally I see it as a wise face (dont ask me why, I have no idea). It matches the way you post; it seems fitting.

It's a homeless guy, first image on a google search of 'hobo'. Currently altered to be more in line with upcoming events and likely to be changed ever so slightly for the following couple of weeks to take into account the 5th, 11th and 12th of November, then Christmas and new year.

I also quite like Noc's avatar, it doesn't seem particularly creepy/odd to me really. I would also like to note that I will not be changing my avatar to some form of pokemon at any point.

This is a picture of me wearing a paper samurai-queen hat at school. I kind of got upset when -everybody- in my school started wearing fedoras (I had a collection of four at the time) and decided to make another clever-yet-surprisingly-smart-hat. I made it in religion and stalked the halls in it, I was lucky my friends were feeling helpful and didn't make me walk into a wall.

I made a generic paper samurai-hat, and folded a crane base and prettied it up to make the yellow part, it fit really snugly without glue or anything. Then I just cut then glued a picture of the Queen inside it from a magazine cover.

Mohammad. As a silly stick man. Absurd. 'Nuff said.

After someone pointing out that my previous avatar was spelt incorrectly (and the attention it seems to have gained as being about offending rather than ridiculing, which wasn't the intention), I've now changed to the Dream Theater logo. Woo.
