How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don't ya think?

I was hoping someone would have gone with "That hat makes you look like an idiot."

It might not cleave you in two, but you'd be on the ground...where you would be cleaved in two.
It serves the same purpose as the original Jayne Cobb hat that was made out of yarn, it makes my enemies fear me in battle. Mine, however, is chainmail, so it makes me look extra-nerdy, and therefore extra fearsome.

Sorry, I had to quote Wash's line.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

WOW, Philadelphia City Hall is one seriously overdecorated building! -luv it! (and -in particular- your branch-framed picture of it )

But, erhm, you do know that those aren't actually gargoyles...

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah, it's more like random statuary, but they have a gargoyle-like vibe to me.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I wonder if common usage would preclude that, at least to people outside the architectural field? Do a google image search on "gargoyle", and most of them are not water spouts.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

So I finally just got myself caught up on this thread and I see there was some discussion about my pic that kinda branched off into a discussion about peoples' opinions about body modification in general.. I'm so glad my stupid little picture sparked so much controversy! hahaha....anyways, just wanna say: I'm not offended by peoples' opinions ...and furthermore, if I do find myself offended or insulted, I try to let go of those feelings within myself...it's my issue, not theirs. I'm pretty comfortable with the way I look.. I've had all of my piercings and all of my tattoos for years now and they are part of me. What other people think really doesn't concern me one way or the other. But on that note, thanks for the compliments too! Compliments are always nice, makes ya feel all warm and fuzzy inside

That is welcome news, because if I may say so, you are very pretty, laika. I myself have no piercings or tats but when done right they can look great on other people (I have no opinion, really, on the subject; I just know I don't want them, but I don't mind if others do), and you've certainly done well.

Ruaidhri, I like your first moody shot especially, very atmospheric. Don't tell me that was done with a phone!?
