It is a cropped screenshot of Yahtzee in front of the Union Jack. Because:

a) Zero Punctuation is effin' hilarious.

b) The particular review that image came from, the Tomb Raider Anniversary review, is (effin' hilarious)^2, which I suppose would be [ (effin')^2 + (effin'hilarious) + (hilariouseffin') + (hilarious)^2 ], but I digress...

c) I like Britain. Britain is where men with sexy accents come from.

River Tam in War Stories. Because sometimes I'm eccentric and cute, other times outright crazy. People also seem to take the love-her-or-hate-her thing towards me too. This picture in particular captured a little bit of melancholy that speaks to me.

Oh, and because River Tam beats up everyone.

I drew a picture of (one of) my Steampunk Alter Ego(s). The result, I thought, was good enough to base an avatar on, so that's what I did. Made an avatar based on the picture of (one of) my Steampunk Alter Ego(s).

Now that I've actually put an avatar on here, I can post about it.

I hope that some people on here will recognise it, but I shall explain anyway.

It is a representation of the lorenz attractor, one of the things that triggered the discovery of chaos.
It's known as the butterfly attractor because of it's shape (and there is some causal relationship between the name and the whole "butterfly flaps it's wings... hurricane on the other side of the world" thing, but I'm not sure which way it goes), so I've superimposed a translucent butterfly over it.

I made it myself from images google found for me and with a bit of cropping and fiddling.


Also, I just found out there was a layout option to have the user details on the left rather than the right, which makes me happy.

...which loses to Dark Reign.


And Jessica's avatar change was surprisingly smooth, in my mind - I didn't have to go through the painful process of looking at the poster's name every time I saw that avatar straight after the switch... probably because it's a regularly changing set of symbols, like the old one.
