All KINDS of stuff. Mostly ideas... politics, science, religion, fishing, food ....stuff that your mom told you wasnt polite to discuss.
As you may have noticed, my profile picture has changed.
Yes, the original picture was that of Dr. Richard P Feynman, a personal hero and inspiration. Since I was already exposing my name and email, I sort of assummed that the profile picture was an opprtunity to select an actual and meaningful avatar ("graphical representation of the user or the user's alter ego or character" from wikipedia). So I submitted Dick's photo and at the same time tracked down the party that handles his affairs asking for official permission. After qute awhile, I finally got the reply for official permission to use Richard Feynman's likeness as my blog photo. In a very nice letter that I'll always cherish as its the closest I'll ever get to someone who actually knows his family, they regretfully declined my request. Ooopps.
So thinking about a 2nd choice that would somehow encapsulate my aspirations I chose the Black Hat Guy from XKCD (http://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php?title=Black_Hat). The author (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randall_Munroe) has already delared the characters open and available for non-commercial use. He is also a personal hero (but he aint no Dick Feynman).
But for whatever facockta reason, the Living Large in Lovely Lake Lands mgt said no; it has to be a picture of my actual head. Front view. Reasonably well illuminated.
So I picked a shot of myself from my recent alaska trip that I thought looked somewhat dapper, but on the LLC page, makes me look like a wanted fugative. To quote Amy: Whatever.
So...... the question is: What would be YOUR graphical representation of yourself user or your alter ego???
