OT - Do You Look Like Your Avatar?

Submitted by xtramelanin on June 17th, 2017 at 1:07 PM


As per my comment in yesterday's posbang, it occurs to me, and assumedly at least some of you, that after a while its impossible not to associate somebody's avatar with what they might really look like.   I mean, can you imagine guys like Brutus, Everybody Murders, MgrowOld, Putin, Hatter, Smash Lampjaw and so many others not looking like their avatars?  You'd have to ask them for their ID's to verify.   Some of you have your dogs as our avatar, but we all know lots of owners look like their dogs.   

The question is this:  Do you look anything like your avatar, and if not, how different are you?


(Taking a break from watching the kids paint our garage.  they're making great progress and amazingly I haven't come close to breaking a sweat....)

Not anymore, but when I was in 7th grade I did.

P.S. I envy you, XM, because I can't wait until my kids are responsible enough to do things like paint the garage. But there are times when I wonder if that day isn't 30 years away.

milking, hay, feed, water, gather eggs. pretty soon its second nature to be given tasks and to accomplish them.   we don't have perfect success at this and we aren't strict about it, but if you give them a good base and show them the way to go they will usually get 'er done.  i also pay them for their labors, particularly when we sell the livestock.  i give them cash/money and the older ones checks, too.   they need to know that work in general and farming in particular pays.

I imagine East German Judge as an attractive blonde model-type, and StephenRKass as a lithe man...or an androgynous woman. Even though I know neither characterization is true.
My avatar is, of course, the great Kurtwood Smith in yet another guise. I don't look like him, as I am an African-American.

I think all Popes were supposed to be. Most probably were. My favorite story is of the Pope who was murdered when a guy found the Pope in bed with his wife...

I don't remember taking a vow of celibacy. But all the women on earth seem to have discussed it during their last big meeting, and come to an agreement...

mine does, although it was 5 years and 2 states ago. I've added some good weight and wear my hair the classic side part now. also I can afford nicer undershirts
