Peck, your response to Sassan got me thinking about this.

I know you cycled through avatars for a long time, and that the Mr. Burns one is probably just a temporary stop. But when I read your response to Sassan, I literally scrolled through the picture in my head looking for Mr Burns.

UncleBuck had several avatars before his current one, but in my head I always imagine that he looks like John Candy.

Not having met anyone on this forum except Rimfire, I have a mental picture of most of you that's in large part taken from your avatar. Is that just me, or do other people do this?

Although I hadn't thought about it until just now, I suppose this makes Hicks' avatar somewhat disturbing....

I do that for Unclebuck as well...:laugh:

We should have a thread going somewhere with peoples actual pictures if they care to post them.

If I looked like one of the girls in my avatar, I'd be a lesbian. :laugh:

And for the record, no, Uncle Buck isn't nearly that fat, to my knowledge doesn't wear that hat, and I'm almost postive doesn't walk around with a sinister grin on his face holding a power drill.

I dunno, Hicks, I actually don't think either one of the girls in your av is that hot. If they were alone, you wouldn't look twice.

You know who really had better not look like his avatar? Kegboy.

Hicks

:laugh: But gosh darn it, people like Kegboy.

I can also vouch that obnox, in fact, DOES wear that outfit! :o It was quite uncomforting at the Forum Party ;) :D

But then again, I like to stand at the front of ships at sunset with Brad Miller, so..... :o :zip:

You're kidding, right? ;)

(I'm just stuck on that avatar. I may have to get the poster.)

Theyre really not that hot. Theyre just kissing.

It's just the whole package I think. he pose, the film style, etc.. great artistic photography.

Oh yeah.. they're still pretty hot in their own right, but I guess I'd prefer it if it were Liv Tyler and Aleka Kamila.

I can answer that question for you. It's a picture of Thora Birch from the movie Ghostworld. Scarlett Johansson is also in that movie. :love:

<<<<Uh-Oh

Actually a few times I've had my real pic up a few times and it looks nothing like my alter 'avitar' ego. As for the origional question...does someone elses avitar put a mental image of who you they are in my mind... I would have to say yes. So I was absolutly shocked when I went to the Forum Party in July!

Hicks
08-27-2004, 08:33 AM
Yeah, I did that too before the forum party. I associated everyone with either their avatar, the smilies they liked to use, and/or how I read their posts to sound.

You picky people make me sick; SICK, ya hear?! :mad: ;)

Seriously, I think both are very attractive, and the situation they're in certainly helps, but I would never say they ARENT hot. LESS hot than some girls maybe.

For those of you who don't think the girls are hot, I suggest that you adjust your monitor.:eyebrow:

You know, I actually did adjust my monitor. For some reason I couldn't get the resolution right. I think it's fixed now, though.

But the girls still have exactly the same things going for them.
