    Not likely, due to the initial question!

    It's black and white as I make sharp distinctions and draw clear lines. The gun is my outwardly forceful demeanor and defensiveness. But it's actually not loaded because I'm at heart a person for peace and unwanting of trouble. The clothes symbolize my penchant for being proper and civilized.

    I don't like to use avatars from off the net, so I make my own. After all, it's ALWAYS about individualism, right?

    Using an avatar someone else made is like borrowing feelings/opinions/perceptions that aren't necessarily your own, you just have a similar likeness to them. It's about transforming your self-image and/ or self-concept.

    Marvin and I have remarkably similar GPPs. However he is decidedly more morbid than I because he is much smarter than I am. But I share his general boredom and nihilism.

    Practicality- it is my face. Spiritually and philosophically? Ha. People think about this too much. Why hide behind some picture? I like to let words speak for themselves.

    I wonder if people have much thought put into their avatars. Or do certain types put more thought in it than others?
