RE: Explain Yourself
USERNAME: Probably overstated for the kind of person I am, but I consider it fitting for a number of minor reasons. The main one to mention, I suppose, is that I make a definite distinction between being hateful and being derisive. I don't consider myself hateful, but... well, you can figure out the rest with regard to people I don't have respect for. Having said all that, I'm quite conscious of my tendency toward strong opinions, and for the longest time I've acted on the principle that a closed mouth gathers no foot.

AVATAR: None yet. I'd better figure out what would work, hadn't I?

TITLE: See "AVATAR".

SIGNATURE: A couple of little things I thought of and Googled, thinking surely they've been said before, only to be shown a result that suggested "maybe not as much as you'd have thought".


"Well, the Bible does say God helps those who help themselves."
"Nah, it doesn’t, actually – that’s from one of Aesop’s fables. The Bible says quite the opposite, in fact – many passages of being patient and faithful, and waiting for the Lord to decide if he wishes to assist."

As for myself:

USERNAME: Taken from The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever by Stephen R. Donaldson. Good series. Read it if you have the time.

AVATAR: The Speech Bobblehead from Bethesda Softworks' triumph, quite possibly the greatest video game ever made: Fallout 3. Throughout the post-apocalyptic waste that is the game's setting, several Vault Boy Bobbleheads are scattered. Each of them gives a bonus to the corresponding skill or S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute. The Speech Bobblehead looks the best as an avatar.

EDIT: Current avatar is simply Vault Boy rather than the bobblehead.

TITLE: Also from Fallout 3, Vault-Tec was the company in charge of creating the Vaults, the underground shelters intended to protect selected groups of humanity from nuclear war.

SIGNATURE: Taken from Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. Pratchett is my all-time favorite author. He mixes satire, absurdist comedy and incredible storytelling in a way that no other writer has ever matched.

EDIT: Current signature is the Vault-Tec motto.

avatar:my one of my dogs pic, he is pretty goofy like me, username: use it all the time,my first initial,last name,the x came from a b horror movie ,montster x ,Signature: i think its self explanatory.

Give a man a fish ,you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish ,you feed him for a life time,give a man religion,he will die praying for a fish

You need to spell-check your sig.

Hmmm....I use "Dragon-Wolf" because it is the name of an obscure creature in Japanese mythology, I think. Plus it sounds kinda cool AND I like Dragons and to an extent, wolves too. (Werewolves ARE kind of cool too you know.)

My avatar is of a dragon named "Chetyre" which appears in Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (One of my favorite games) and I just thought he was cool, I could have used his adversary (Chetyre is not exactly the good guy here but..) "Odjn" and I might...someday......maybe...perhaps. (Did I mention I like dragons?)

As for my signature....I like Homer Simpson and this particular quote seemed so fitting. He may be an idiot but a funny one and at times surprisingly insightful.

I use the title I do because this is how I see myself. Just a speck in a vast sea. I might change it to something else...maybe.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.
To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.
That is Alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange.

RE: Explain Yourself
USERNAME: The Outcast. Well, that's not an overly simple answer. I mean I could say it's just because I've always been a bit of an odd duck, but lately it's more then that. Normally, I use the name Kaziarl (I character I created some time ago when I first started writing, which eventually got identified with my by some of my friends, so they started calling me by that name). However, when I first started poking around TTA's Facebook page and watching his videos, I decided I wanted to do the same. It wasn't enough for me to point to what others have said about why they aren't religious, I wanted to put it in my own words. And I wanted to do it from scratch, and get a fresh start. At the time there were some family things going on, some comments made that made it seem as though they thought I was a failure, so I went with The Outcast (Or The Family Outcast as the full facebook url for my page says.)

AVATAR: Haven't put one up yet, but it will probably be this: http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-a...4173_n.jpg that is the avatar I use for my page.

SIGNATURE: Again, haven't added one yet, but I like to quote authors that have inspired me. Such as E.A. Poe, or Hemingway.
