    Ok this is probably quite a random thread, but sometimes I have a mental image of what other TSR users look like, and I was wondering if anyone else does? I've got no idea why I have these mental images!

    For example:

    Chilipop - I always imagined being about 30 and going a bit prematurely bald
    Onearmedbandit - I imagined being tall with short dark and quite spiky hair
    Dr_Death - similar to Onearmedbandit
    Spangletastic - long straightened hair

    This was before I looked on the Picture thread, of course..

    Well let me analyse them for you

    Chilipop - old because of the "pop" bit (poppa? :confused: ) and chilly cos a bald man's head would be ummm cold.

    Onearmedbandit/dr death - both sound evil and bandity so you'd imagine them to have dark hair.

    Spangletastic - Like spaghetti? stringy hair?



    Actually probably not! I should never become a psychologist.

    I would have thought Chilipop's would have been because of the avatar he had, but there we go...

    I always imagine him being short for some reason

    (Maybe it's cause when i saw d I was surprised he wasn't taller?)

    It must all be subconcious or something - it certainly wasn't a concious decision, anyway...
    I did't think onearmedbandit or dr death sounded evil, just for the record! Nor do I think Spangletastic has spaghetti-like hair - I'm sure she's got very nice hair!

    I wish . The only thing me and James Dean have in common is the untimely death. And the rumoured bisexuality :rolleyes:.

    Edit: Oh, and I always imagined Pikaboo being blonde...and I was right

    It was taken a year ago, so 19.
    This onewas taken last week though. But I get complaints when I try and change my avatar so it's having to stay!

    Avatars do make your impressions slightly more odd, I have to say :s:

    I always imagine some sort of face or voice, but I'm usually wrong
    But since I actually know only one other person on TSR in real life, i.e. I've never met any of you (to my knowledge), then I may never know for sure...

    Heh. I'd have to agree with you there. For example, I'd imagine pikaboo to look a lot more like pikachu than she idoes. It's the reason I don't have an avatar.

    Wonder what everyone thinks I look like?
    Spoiler:

    If it's anything like 14, tall, quite lanky, short hair, wearer of glasses and a lot more good-looking that that description suggests, you are very good at this sort of thing.
