Being a middle aged man, I find your avatar terrifyingly reminiscent of a visit to the Doctor.

I dont know if I ever liked it. I think sometimes it portays you as a bit of an a** and then when you say something nice like wanting to be a teacher, everyone raises thier eye brows
I think your posts have been friendly and entertaining lately and that could call for a new more freindly avatar?
I dont know I would of never said this to you but hey, you asked!

Yeah, I've noticed I identify people who don't change their avatar more immediately by their avatar than by their actual screen name. I changed mine recently for the first time but I almost wish I hadn't - its kind of a strong part of your online identity I think.

I don't get it. I can't think of anything friendlier than a snickering doctor pulling a glove on his hand with that "I'm gonna put this in you" look in his eye...

What's the big deal?

You're putting on latex gloves before you work on your bike.

I do it all the time!

You remind me of my high school history teacher. He was wearing his clothes from when he was in high school. Twenty years later and he's still wearing them.
