I saw some humour with one of the biggest mass murders in history (seemingly generally celebrated by people with socialist views as some kind of proof that socialist societies can work, -and yes, with added genocide they can) being juxtaposed with colonel Sanders, a man that was neither a doctor, nor a colonel who of course has led to the death of many chickens. (though he wasn't too jolly either really)

the santa hat is from where I changed it years ago for Christmas, and am too lazy to change it back.

previously I used the forums stock "riscos" avatar because I had fond memories of that particular OS on Acorn computers in school.

Reality!

Avatars could give wrong impression of the user, so I choose to put myself on it. I'm an honest person, with myself and with others. I don't like to hide behind avatars (no offense).

As for the pose... well, for some reason I often give thumbs up.

My avatar reflects reality far too often.

People see me as strange, so I enjoy using the *Alienware* icon. I just feel like it matches me.
