Fishdom Island! At least that looks like what it says. :)

Mine is a structure I built from magnetic sticks and metal balls. It was the only reasonably abstract picture that I had at hand when signing up.

Oh, I thought you guys were all pokemons. Josh, James, Tom and Dave.

I don'r know much about pokemon, I guess I'm like 10 years to old or so. My younger siblings used to know all about them.

 

And Bit Buster, I thought that was a photo of yourself.

 

My picture is just a funny one that I found on Facebook. I think if you click it you might be able to read what it says. (A comment from a fellow engineer was "Oh, this makes dancing seem easy now.", to which another friend replied "Well I just thought, dancing suddenly became very hard.)

Nah, I'm not the kind of guy who uses pictures of himself as his avvy...especially not on a public forum! Too paranoid...plus, it's always fun when you're posting on a forum and someone says, "Hey, that's Tal in your avvy, isn't it?" Sadly, these moments are quite rare, but hey, I'm a chess geek...what can I say? ;)

 

I'm impressed by some of the avvies people made themselves; M11k4's is particularly cool. And I'm still endlessly amused by JB's "hammer bros" pic, though I'm not sure why...

Now that I think about it, if he didn't have the hammer, he might just be another insufferably cute cartoon character. But because he looks as if he's going off to destroy something or someone (and he's running, at that), he's got class. Oodles of class.

Are you impressed with mine? (Y)

Lol mine IS a pokemon, and so is Dave's :P

Yes, I am impressed; doubly so when considering that it's a CC level! I'm pretty much amazed by any sorts of graphic art that uses little tiles to compose larger, more recognizable images (there's a technical term for it...anyone know what it is?).

 

And yeah, the fact that the hammer bro is so cheerful about his imminent rampage of destruction is really the key to the whole thing. It wouldn't work if he had a neutral expression on his face. He looks for all the world like a little kid running off towards the playground...the only difference is that hammer ominously poised to strike.

I don't really know what mine is, but you could say it is a depiction of a photon.

 

If you know it's a depiction of a photon, doesn't that mean you know what it is? :P

Did you make it yourself? If not, how'd you find it?

I didn't create it myself, though that's probably one style of art that I would create. I found it in an image search one or two years ago, so I can't remember exactly what I searched, but I think it was "photon", or something related. So it works to say it's a depiction of a photon (with that wave/particle characteristic), but it isn't necessarilly that. I guess I like to think of it as a photon though.

I made mine just because I was so impressed with Flareon. His is so much better.

Hey I like your geodude sprite too. Maybe it could use more of a background though. Or maybe that would be too distracting.

It took some time to find a small enough graphic online to copy -- it had a white background, so I used ice.

 

Also, how can quarks have colors when they are smaller than all wavelengths of visible light?

Use it in a sentence.

 

I was referencing a Calvin & Hobbes strip in which Hobbes says "I like to say 'quark.' Quark, quark, quark..."

 

 

Does that count as a sentence? :)

As soon as I saw "quark," I knew what the reference was...:)
