Mine was chosen just because I loved the short film it came from.  When I had my own forums I had about a hundred of them over the past four years.  I like to have fun with it.

I've seen many different "avatars" here and it got me wondering why and how did they get chosen.
There are some serious, meaningful and strange ones........even funny ones.
 
 
Put your thoughts down about your "avatar"
I'll start.
 
 
Mine is purely, my Masonic ring, which I value greatly.
