Whether it's a self portrait or your favorite Glock, some are pretty self-explanitory, others are just flat out odd. What is the reasoning behind what you decided to use for your avatar... After I first shaved my head, I got the usual teasing from friends that would be expected after such a radical change in hair style. Baldy, Mr. Clean, Q-Ball were pretty common. But when someone called me "Sir Lancelot", I had to ask "Huh?" He said, "Your head is so shiney!" So, I was looking at helmets that knights wore with a suit of armor. They just didn't look right without the whole suit and all. Then I stumbled upon this crazy, mean lookin' Spartan type helmet. No suit. Just a headfull of metal. Perfect...my avatar.
