"Regarded by many people in southeast Asia as the 'king of fruits', the durian is distinctive for its large size, stomach-churning odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. . . .The edible flesh emits a distinctive odour that is strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Some people regard the durian as pleasantly fragrant; others find the aroma overpowering and revolting. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as almonds, rotten onions, turpentine, and gym socks. The odour has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia."

But it is delicious! Smile (Right, DLJ?)
Man, I knew I had seen it before!

I guess it's better not to ask why you chose a durian for your avatar then Cool

Well . . .

First, I really, truly do love durian. (I spent two years in Malaysia and virtually became addicted.)

And second, it is, after all, the King of Fruits.

Your avatar stands out because it was the very first one to catch my eye/interest when I first joined this cesspool of heathens.

And no, durian is not the king of anything other than smelling like a wad of 100 year old gym socks that has been soaking in whale semen.

Matthew West because it is not my real name, and because it is not as generic as John Jones. I like the irony that it turns out to be the real name of a Christian Contemporary artist, but I'm not him.

It's subtitled 'Adventures and investigations with wolf birds.'

Avatar: cover art of the album 'L'enfant Sauvage' by the French metal band Gojira. Love the band, that album, and they blew my mind live.

Title: a line from the song 'Liquid Fire' from the album in the above section.
