Awww... what a cute couple.
Why are the avatars with the V-sign with palms facing inward?
Does this mean something else?
I love these! I think we should make it mandatory for everyone to use them as their avatar.
In Europe especially England...it carries the same translation as the middle finger.
Ah. Thanks, Bryce. Somehow I thought it was like the Japanese "V" sign... guess not.
This is why I keep gesticulation in foreign countries to a minimum.
I think it means the same in Australia as in the UK. a few years ago our president (forget which one) was in Australia and was giving the peace sigh continuously... if only he knew.
There weren't buttons for "Fatter", "Drunk", and "Covered in Paint" or we might be on the money.
That would be fun as hell!!
Damn, some of these are great - Wish I could get the cussed thing to work for me ...
Just a buch of buttons labelled 'undefined,' and none of them will do anything but pop up more unlabelled buttons! Updated my Flash, softbooted, but still no joy ...
I'd have waited - but I'm a big Patton fan. Would've been worth it!
Just make a screengrab of it - then you don't have to give your email out to anyone either!
Cometdebris had this on his blog
British history 101 . . . . . according to a popular legend the two-fingers salute and/or V sign derives from the gestures of longbowmen fighting in the English army at the Battle of Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years' War.The story goes that the French claimed that they would cut off the arrow-shooting fingers of all the English longbowmen after they had won the battle at Agincourt. But the English came out victorious and showed off their two fingers, still intact.
Look, I still have both fingers now feck off back to France!
Uberboy . . . why is your avatar wearing pink eyeshadow? . . . .
Whassamatter? Guy can't wear pink eyeshadow?
its either becuz i'm trying to impress goth chics at this graveyard i'm chilling in

Oh... that's what I was doing wrong. When I tried to impress Goth chicks, I always wore Aubergine, Mauve, or Puce eyeshadow...
. . . you wear it well!
I never realized before this thread we're all so damned cute!
That's funny because that hand sign means $^%@ you in England
As for my manga avatar... uhg... I thought about it, but then I decided against... I'd elaborate a bit more, but its personal
