    But more to the point. When I opened my account, my avatar was a famous picture of Neil Armstrong, who had recently died. I was using the picture as a posthumous honor. I noticed that a lot of people seemed to get the impression that I was a child, based on nothing more than having a picture of an astronaut as my avatar.

    Your avatar is beautiful , it looks like a dream.

    The cigar is you and the little eye with the cap is the moon. Saturn, scaled down at the top-right , joined in for the fun. The smoke is unclear , as it should be. The rest ?  .... it's unclear.

    OR

    It is real . A picture of dog-vomit or something that left the poor beasts colon . It's been somewhat distorted by the foodsteps of nearsighted pedestrians and little kids with their bikes.

    I firmly believe an avatar should be a true representation of oneself

    You are my sweet roopy , the best friend from the south I've meet. You are one of us , at least of me. You are my friend and therefore I say "you are over-validated." So much it is I like you.

    The Dutch had their golden century in the 17/18e century. It was not only based on the trade (theaft) of goods , but for a good part on the exploitation of big-scale slavery. They rounded up some black people in Africa , stacked too many of them in the boats and sailed them to America. The ones that survived the journey were lucky to be sold.

    It is the Dutch that brought the black people to America and the Dutch are still a little angry that these Americans have never thanked them for doing it.

    Ya'll invented maladministration in America with the incompetence of the Stuyvesants in New Amsterdam, too. The Dutch deserve more credit for what's wrong with my nation. Thank you.

    @Ziryab :

    A butterfly in Amsterdam caused a storm in NewYork 1679. The Dutch seem to have invented chaos-theory too. When allowed , see what a small nation can do or did to fuck-up the big world.

    The Dutch pretty much settled the Southern tip of Africa in the 16th century.

    I grew up with Jan van Riebeeeck's visage on all our coins.

    Even old New York was once New Amsterdam. Why did Constantinople get the works? It's nobody's business but the Turks'.

    The alliance of Sud Afrika was in question in 1914, the Boer War being a very recent memory. There was a faction that favored siding with the Central Powers, and some actual shooting took place, IIRC.
