    Mine is a very old colourized photo from 1910 of newspaper boys. Just thought they looked really cool. The photo was on Shorpy's...

    When I was shopping for a guitar amp, I stumbled upon Jack Anderson in Washington. He builds his amps totally by hand, one at a time. he does not have models: he builds you what you want to the point of asking for song samples to get the exact tones coming out of them (the amps). I picked up the amp in person and spent hours in his living room testing speakers until we found the "right" one to match it. This is probably my favorite material possession: it's one-of-a-kind, built by a solid dude, to my exact wants.

    I don't know how to move my Avatar over yet so I'll just explain it. As you can see it's a polar Bear. I love cold weather, and the neatest thing I ever saw was a Polar Bear take a fish out of a Seal hole in the wild. Also I'm kinda like that, Large and lumbering, But bother my Cub or my friends and I'll bury you in the snow for later:).

    View of my gauge and stuff in my car. If I'm not here or at work I spend a lot of time looking at that stuff. I love my Acura!

    Photo editing program? Use sumopaint if you don't have any decent program on your computer :)

    Off topic, but did you ever read a book called "Truck" by John Jerome? A philosophical kind of book about a guy restoring a 1950 dodge pickup truck. I just gave my copy away, but here's a link. I guarantee you'll like it. http://www.amazon.com/Truck-Rebuilding-Worn-Out-Post-Technological-Adventures/dp/0874517559/ref=sr_1_22?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1372516506&sr=1-22&keywords=Truck

    I found this photo when there was a frog infestation here on the forum. I shopped around for a photo of a cow combined with a frog, because I wanted to retain a cow in my avatar and I wanted to play along.

    Then I found an even better picture.:)

    Mine is a tree crest I drew for the Kickstarter-funded game Banner Saga. One of the rewards was to design a crest that would be featured in the game, and this was my entry. I likes axes and I likes trees, so there you go. :)

    Hmm, I chose mine based on the fact that I don't like using pictures of myself, but I wanted a picture that meant something to me. I tried a few of my first car, but they didn't look right.

    This picture was taken from one of my favorite places in the world--the top of Baldy in Garner State Park (Texas), which looks down on the park and the Frio River. I have many pictures similar to this (several from each trip), but this is my favorite because it is a Polaroid taken by my parents before I was born. As such it feels like a link between them and me, the past and present.

    Don't know if it makes a great avatar but I love this picture.

    I've always liked this concept art. I think it's fitting in relation to EDC, and one can rarely go wrong with a post-apocalyptic zombie world when trying to choose an avatar.

    There's probably not much doubt about what my avatar is. :D

    I choose the power ring for several reasons: I love comic books, the color green, and the Lantern has the most powerful EDC in all of comicdom. No need to carry tools at all - just will them into existence out of pure green energy.

    If only the Guardians on Oa would see fit to grant me one.... I would probably misuse it for making a sandwich while I'm posting on the fourms.

    Mines me after taking 3rd place in a League wrestling tournament at the 132lb weight class, I was a 126lb wrestler but that day our 32 guy couldn't make it so I got to take his varsity spot. It was a hard fought third considering everyone was outweighing me by about 6-8 pounds (for once I weighed right at 26 vs the allowed max weight of 128) In the first round I got kneed in the left eye causing it to swell up, managed to beat this guy in the 3rd round by a point, than the next few matches werent to hard, but they were all third round victories (thats sorta my strategy I had way higher endurance and speed than most of the other guys due to me being a runner, so I could tire them out and take them in the third round) I ended up losing the next two rounds getting me third, the last one I had the guy smashed my face into the mat causing my nose to start bleeding sparying blood all over the mat and me. All in all it was a good tournament considering I'm a JV guy
