I might as well get an Avatar so my posts have a little more individuality to them. I've got a few ideas, maybe you guys can help me decide which one to choose?

1.A drawing of a preacher holding a .50, that my friend drew.

2.A picture of the priest off Scary Movie 2 holding the pistol (I really want this one but I can't get a picture of it anywhere. Anybody have a link?)

3.A picture of myself in 7th grade eating sidewalk my first attempt at skateboarding... Maybe not that one.

Thread moved here from the Proposed New Topics forum.

Note that I put this in the "Short Subjects" forum. Born2Preach could have submitted it there directly.

The original title of the "Short Subjects" forum was "Short Term Topics and Messages" (more descriptive, but wordy). The intent of that forum was to be for disposable messages (subject to deletion after they served their short term purpose). Like a version of the "Post It" sticky note pad paper.

That said, very few "Short Subjects" topics have been deleted so far.

Why not have your friend draw you a cute little baby wearing a clerical collar?

spandex! spandex! spandex!
Given your sig, you should scout around world championship wrestling sites and steal something from there. There are some awesome possibilities...

No babies
Because for one I like the preacher packing heat thing, another thing is that I want something more... imposing than a cute little baby.
That's partly why I changed my mind about the 360 faceplant picture.

Re: spandex! spandex! spandex!
Maybe, but if we're going that direction I could always get a picture of myself doing something cool. Then again, I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a strange group of scientists seeing ME in spandex. It might be too distracting por soy muy guapo.

Fork over 20 bucks and I'll rush deliver it... you cheap bastard...

But seriously, I need a few more references. If you find the picture off Scary Movie 2 it'd really be easier on me but then I won't get the cash.


i kant spell gud

Re: Money
I told you I'd hand over the money when I see the picture. For now all I hear about is you need more practice and blah, blah, blah. I'm going to need that picture for more than just this site, you know. That's going to be my logo in... like... everything!

And I'm not cheap...

Then why not draw the little darlin' with red eyes, horns and a pitchfork?

Astute.

Is it right that a person should have something insightful and useful to say one very subject, including one so trite as someone's avatar?

Of course, that was never a trite subject to you; you took it seriously from the beginning. I definitely liked your former avatar better, by the way. This one looks unkempt, perhaps even disheveled (a word I can't pronounce or spell, but am looking up on dictionary.com as I type here), and nothing about your posts is disheveled or unkempt. Quite the opposite!

Anyway, it was a great suggestion. Born2prch, I think you ought to consider it.

Re: No babies
Even the horns wouldn't be good enough, plus it wouldn't really fit the 'Born2Preach' theme. Then again neither would the wrestling thing, but ah well. In all seriousness, I just don't want a baby for an avatar. Thanks for the idea though.

AN AFTERTHOUGHT: This wouldn't be payback for the Rocky and Buwinkle thing, would it?

Kinda, sorta, maybe. I was only joking, in any case.

Re: spandex! spandex! spandex!
Truthlover's got a point(umm, about my avatar, not Sylas's. I don't think I even saw his old one.)

But still, I'd feel half-assed getting a wrestling picture from some other match when I've got plenty of my own shots lying around here(somewhere...).

Granted they'd be shots of people who were much better than me, but still... and then there's the uncomfortability that a bunch of science-enthusiasts can see a picture of me in spandex. I do't like that, either. I especially don't like the idea of being partially exposed when there are people with names like 'NoseyNed' on this forum.
