I see so many colorful, interesting, dark and complex profile images and avatars and i wonder what that says about the poster, compared to what they
say or think.
Personally I wanted to associate a massive super power of unpredictable and unprecedented cosmic force with mans possible indirect self destruction
through technology (HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey www.imdb.com... vs. the sun) I wanted my opinions to reflect a human
skeptic with respect for technology and raw space/nature + dumb luck, or statistics, if your not into luck
Why did you pick your profile images and what do you think or want them to say about you?

I have told this story elsewhere here....but to summarize: an ex employee of mine, while I was working in laramie, wy, came into the office looking
for me. He didn't see me at my desk, so he asked, "Hey, where is that big, fat, furry, Texan at?". I thought it was hilarious and i went with
that in online persona's a few years later when the internet came around.
The images: i love primates. To narrow it down I stuck with the gorilla (although I have a swank Christmas avi i use that sourced from a lifelike
Plus, it kinda makes sense to utilize a gorilla image given my user name.
Ive taken to switching mine figures on my mood I guess. Mostly because they are so gun-ho American, I guess it represents to me that Idealized America
I grew up with, The America that was sold to me, not the one that is now.
You know the one that believed in freedom and liberty/
Mine is a photo I took of a Peregrine Falcon. I've always admired this bird, a raptor that can fly over 200 miles per hour, (fastest animal on
the planet?) with excellent eyesight.
I wanted to use one of my own photos and this one suited my sensibilities as far as my online presence is concerned.
The reason I chose my avatars is because they're either random or something I like. The current avatar with the girl holding a cat is both funny and
cute. I have always found cute girls to be cuter than most.
Well.. White Rabbit has been my screen name/CB Handle going back to my late teens, so that's a no brainer. The big book is supposed to have a copy of
the Constitution on it where my Avatar is pointing like 'What about this??'. Err...it didn't come out as clear as I wanted.
The symbol is just something I threw together and considered for a logo on some underground stuff I was working with but decided not to and thought it
added a bit of rebellion to the scene. 'Carrot Power!'.
Well my own comes from what I've been told I would be in the creature world during one of those games you play when you are drunk with some
Apparently, I have a very high tolerance level to BS. So it would take something pretty extreme to set me off into "psycho mode" very quickly. So I've
been likened to a Viper. It only strikes when it needs to and against severe provocation.
Kind of stuck after that. Shame really, I always wanted to be rhino.
