    As an extension of this topic:

    Let's see everyone explain their avatar...
    (I did a quick forum search and found nothing similar but if someone does feel free to let me know).

    I'll start.

    My name is Jim. And was a big Earthworm Jim fan as a kid. So I chose this avatar as a little childhood memory. Plus him sharing my name is just a nice bonus.

    I get stuff wrong here often enough, I figured with the right avatar, I could more easily blame them on senility instead of... uhm, ahh, uhm... from doing my growing up in the 60s and early 70s.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    I started out with Clippy (the MS Paperclip) more as a joke than anything. After someone else joined and started using the avatar I decided to switch to a photo. Had one handy with my daughter and a trebuchet we built for her science project.
    Have been thinking about changing again if I can come up with something:
    1) I like better
    2) Unique
    3) Cool
    4) Relatively easy to do

    Or, alternatively I might just think about changing and stick with this one for who knows how long.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I tend to switch my avatar up periodically. I may even bring back the square chicken on occasion.

    Hold on a second here .... there is nothing wrong with growing up in the 60's ...
    I am living proof... ( don't know if that's good or bad )

    When I joined, I selected an avatar that was available in the default list, and never looked back.

    But I guess this thread makes me consider and extreme makeover.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    I love it, when people are rocking the default avatars! But I understand, if you must have another.

    I just love Beetles and vans

    On another note, I kinda like Stewie from Family Guy, I know his accent is New England but he kinda sounds more British, so in an odd trans Atlantic way, I chose Stewie

    I used to use the same avatar on most sites until I got here. When Snow Leopard was released I really liked the image and used it right away, and haven't thought about changing it once. My username can be found in various sites, mostly car related and part of my username is derived from my car model.
