why I picked it? He is my hero! plus the shits and giggles from dumb fucks make it totally worth it.
That's why this thread is fun and interesting.

It is interesting to know the reasons why people choose certain avatars to represent themselves.

Here's a handy reverse image identifier.

That image is too small for that software (100 pixel minimum).

Anyway, my question is a specific one. It looks like half the graphic is from the old Imperial Russian crest, while the other half is taken from the USSR crest.

That's why I'm asking the question. That juxtaposition is rather unusual to say the least!

You might be pleasantly surprised at its capabilities. Off-topic, photography forums have been raving about it as it locates original images being used without permission by a large swath of private and public entities.

Don't get me started on that bullshit copyright crap of photography. I loathe the idea of IP being applied to photographs. I think that's absurd and is an insult to the principle of patent/copyright.

Just a classic case of "information feudalism" (i.e. rent-seeking).

That being said, I don't doubt the utility of the software. I was just pointing out that the software has a minimum size requirement and the photo in question is smaller than that size requirement.

My avatar is of a black hole. It's like my life.

I read all 8 pages of this thread which was a bit strange. Mine is a picture of a sleeping carabao with a few egret friends near my home. To me it represents the peace and beauty here.

Indeed, it is odd to read the earlier pages since the avatars are dynamic and thus the comments from before don't always match up with the avatars as they are now.

Still, it is good to announce the avatar change here.

Speaking of which, maybe its time for me to change up my avatar... hmmm...
