    The Apple is for the Beatles and my general love of music.

    The Pi is for my training in Mathematics and my interest in the Sciences.

    My wife makes a great Apple Pie.

    It's from the 1980 Dune movie. I loved the books, so why not.

    I've always been a huge fan of James O'Barr's graphic novel The Crow. The image is taken from the end when the angel monument in the graveyard weeps in sympathy.

    Kimmy is looking incredulously at the comment above mine.

    Edit. That look seems to translate better on Facebook. Here it looks like she's staring down her nose at my username, which also works.

    It was given to me! Maybe i should just get off my ass and pick something.

      I have one I usually use, but to this point I've been too lazy to upload it, and there's no built-in support for Gravatar that I can see.

    I was bored at work and we were talking about useless talents. Mine is making a star out of a rubber band.

    This mad scientist picture inspired a Halloween costume for me a few years ago, and I've been using it as my avatar on sites since.

    It's a combination of my favourite things: Mario (Nintendo), Jayne's Hat (Firefly) and Manchester United.

    I love astronomy and space so I went with Neptune. Plus it's perfectly round so it fits nicely.

    When I went to choose my avatar I decided to just grab an image of the first thing that popped into my head. Which, for some unknown reason, was the phrase "Grape King". Apparently that's a thing, so here we are.

    It looks just like my cat, and I started my own business. Hence, business cat!

    It's the icon for the Zerg race from Starcraft 2. Was my favourite race in Starcraft & Starcraft: Brood War, continues to be such in Starcraft 2. And in the immortal words of Infested Terran, "Live for the swarm!".

    It's a picture of spam musubi, one of my favorite dishes. I messed up on my name though :/

    It's proof that I've been reading playboy from a very young age (for the articles of course), with my mother's approval!

    My avatar was GIMP'ed out of a photo I took of a t-shirt at World of Disney a couple of years ago that was captioned "My finger, pull".

    I wanted something that looked grumpy but fuzzy.

    Painting by one of my favourite artists. Also people seem to think I'm pretentious or something if I use other paintings, but I usually don't get judged for Hopper's.
