Now I get it, he reminds me of Big Brother or someone else from 1984.

Your picture bothers me. It suggests to me that because you are a nerd with a wife, you are somehow better than everyone else on the internet. The way your wife's hand is on top of yours shows that you are completely ignoring her and the angle of her hand suggests that she wants to be shown some love but the other hand doesn't want anything of it, just using it to assert superiority. I won't tell you what someone else who has the same opinion as me said, but they basically agree. Your picture just doesn't sit well with me.

That was absurd, and to be honest so was what you said.

No, my nails are just naturally shiny. It comes from eating well.

Never really thought of it like that, then again I never intended the pic like that. It's from a while back, I didn't take it for this thread ;)

How about this pic, taken just before the last one. Does it pass muster?

Why are you touching yourself with that very feminine looking hand?

:P

No, and I don't know what set me off about it. I know it wasn't meant that way. It is, after all, just a picture.

I like that picture. Is that your girlfriend? wife?

My Girlfriend of 4 years :)

She was my first GF, back in highchool, then we got back together years and years later when we were all growed up :)

Awww.

For the record, I think your first pic just looks like you two were having a laugh. About what, I have no idea, but a laugh nonetheless. My girlfriend thought it was sweet.

Doesn't quite have the "Hah! Owned!" quality of the first one. I liked the first one for that. Then again, I'm assuming that she knew what you were doing in that picture, or at least thought it was funny afterward.

Although, the "pleased to eat you" look's pretty cool too.


*still wondering if there's an image of Mas out there that hasn't been seen by all and sundry already*

More spotlight than shiny, i prefer mine (though he looks infinitely more evil than the original):

Truly only a gerbil that could have hailed from the radioactive forums of the Defcon pages.

Seems this one isn't so well known (if NeoThermic is a reliable guide):
