omg you are right :oops: . Why the fuck did I forget Wario? :lol:

Anyway both are characters from games I really love (and in the case of Gameboy era Wario, one of my favorite video game characters of all time, period).

Who's this bubbles you speak of?


Am I the only one who's had consistently the same avatar from the start? (with a small edit to add a transparent background). I should get a new one which actually has Zero on it :lol: (and yeah, my nickname is from Zero in Megaman X/Zero)

That's super old. Lately it's been Wario.

Yeah wow that's waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy old.

No love for the old Bubbles one?

It'd be kinda cool, but ultimately really odd, if your forum post kept the avatar you had at the time.

I am digging the new sig...even if the Zelda games are sort of an RPG. :lol:

I have always been Miles Edgeworth, but I do change it to The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase from time to time (and for no reason). :lol:

Someone could change their avatar for every post they make and really confuse people.

How about a gif that slowly changes? Like every 30 seconds or so.

I've been using Phalanx man for a long time. Don't plan to change it.

I changed mine a couple years ago for about two hours before people commented/complained about it. So Shameless Cats it is.

Well a forum made consisting of people stuck to the past can't be advocating for avatar change, can it? :lol:

Johnny isn't going anywhere. Ever. I hope.

Right off the bat some people think I'm a jerk solely on my avatar, others love it. I love it, so there ya go.

Random thought:

Have you ever taken the time to think what "average" is? Do they matter in the long run?

This is spitballing, not an attack on math, and I heart math.

"Average height", "average weight for a male in his 50's", "average IQ" (which is an average of an average of a disproportionate average), "average lifespan", and so on and so on.

This is a loooooooooooooong d r a w n o u t thing I'm tackling, as although I believe averages are a good way to measure things in business, but business isn't always real life.

Point being: Do averages mean dip to you when it comes to life?

Example: I had a ten percent chance of keeping my legs when I was a kid.

Another Example: My Grandmother was told in her 70's that she had a ninety percent of not seeing her 80's, and she's in her 90's.

I get the value of it, so no need for a lecture.

Brass tacks: Do you care at all about the odds?
