    My picture is just the car my user name is. It is a car I like and will probably never see. I am bored with the picture but of course, I had to choose a name where I can't just change it or it won't make sense. I took the photo from google.

    I'm a huge chevy guy, and I like this Camaro rendering better than the 5th/6th gen. I will change my pic soon though.

    well, my avatar is a screenshot from Wolf Children (2012)

    it's a really great movie but it will cause you to make your eyes rainfall (and make them turn red).

    Here's the scene that my avatar originates from (at 1:46 minute mark)

    I was watching some Top Gear clips from 2013-backwards, and I saw this piece and thought: “Hmm, I can make a meme outta this.”

    I work as a volunteer at my local animal shelter, in the cat adoption room, socializing the kittens and young cats, getting them ready for adoption. I also clean cages, move cats/kittens in and out as needed.

    I'm not allowed to touch the feral cats, as they are deemed particularly aggressive and dangerous once captured. While we do have the lowest euthanasia rate in our county, there is technically no such thing as a "no kill" shelter. It simply doesn't exist. There's no kill rescues, but not "no kill" city or county shelters. The shear numbers of animals just makes that impossible.

    That's the only part of the job that sucks and makes me sad, but everything else is really rewarding.

    My forum thumbnail and youtube logo is an attempt to try and cleverly indicate my physical condition as well as my current hobby. Confused? ..

    I have retinitis pigmentosa which is a retina disease and is often abbreviated RP. I thought it would be interesting to adopt the ESRB's 'ratings pending' logo for my videos and BNG profile picture. Most viewers probably see the 'RP' flash on screen at the beginning of my videos and think nothing of it or maybe think 'ratings pending' but I wonder if anyone has paused the video as the logo flashes by to see what it really says. It's not the video that is rated 'RP'. It's me.

    And as for the silhouette watching a static screen in the forum picture...most figures I see are sillhouettes and a commonly reported symptom of RP is visual snow or static vision.

    Maybe a bit subtle to be appreciated but I liked the idea so I went with it. But this thread gave me an excuse to bring it to light.

    A great number of (game) versions ago, I came up with the ultimate Sport Truck package, parodying the GMC Cyclone/ Typhoon. I liked the combination so much I ended up taking a screenshot showcasing them and making it my profile picture. It replaced my old avatar which was the preview "icon" for the "chrome" body color option.
