    I see a lot of interesting avatars and always wonder (a) why it was chosen and
    (b) does it have a meaning to the user.

    My current avatar is the confluence of three things.

    1) I was looking up info on squirrels and that pic popped up and I had to have it.
    2) BigBadWulf coined the term "Modfia" and I thought it fit the image.
    3) LazyStarGazer dubbed him Vinnie "The Squirrel" DeLuca. Sort of the
    "Modfia" enforcer. That sealed it.

    What's your avatar story?

    1.) My first avatar was of Madonna, I'm a huge fan.
    2.) My second avatar was of a Valium bottle, and although I don't take Valium, I take Clonazepam (Kolonopin) and I <3 them.
    3.) My Third avatar is just my handle name. It's probably gonna change soon though.

    I got my avatar from "Cereal Killer" after a rumor was floating around here that we were the same person. I've grown fond of it...

    Haha. Perfect.
    I chose my current avatar just to see if you'd tell me I couldn't use it.

    While my pimp hand is quite strong, I didn't find it objectionable.

    I have a Red/White 2009 Yamaha YZF-R1 which I absolutely love. I got tired of using the basic BB device avatars so I decided to throw the R1 up there. I couldn't find a U.S. Red/White one so I just used the European version. Being a tremendous underachiever, I'd rather use the image I found on Google than take the 5 or so minutes to take a picture of my bike and make an avatar out of it.

    I honestly couldn't find anything to use for an avatar when I was signing up, and God forbid I should subject this forum to my face.

    Zim rocks, and I had the above Zim graphic on the PC at the time. Put him up as a placeholder, and he's been there ever since. He's even carried over to my Twitter avatar.

    When robots take over the world one day, I will blend right in and be safe. I did'nt choose my avatar, my avatar chose me.

    An old girlfriend once told me that when we met, she described me as a pond of serenity. After being calmed, she decided to reach to touch the bottom of it, thinking she would get her hand wet, and suddenly realized she was soaked to the shoulder and being sucked in.

    So the rings draw you ever onward, you are getting pulled further....the bottom beckons, but isn't ever reached.

    My first avatar here was a basement pic of me.
    My second avatar was a pic my friend photoshopped of me of Jimi Hendrix.
    Later avatars are just updated photos of me.

    Self explanatory.

    My avatar usually is just something I find funny.

    I almost always use a picture of me.

    EDIT: I'm getting new glasses in about a week I will take and post a new picture then.
