It's entirely a thing of associating avatars with the person behind them. Without having personal information about a person it's all we have to go on. Unless a name clues into the person. I think the only person I could tell anything about when I first came here was BC, for obvious reasons. I also judge personalities by avatars as well. UrbanExplorer, for instance, perfectly matches his avatar in my opinion.
Actually, in Anna's case it's the chosen username that causes many to assume the user behind it is female. Avatars may be associated with personality traits, but at least for me, they say nothing about gender. I'm a member of another comic-unrelated forum, where there aren't any Avatars, and I still make mis-assumptons abut people's genders all the time.

Chris Cornell hit me hard, mostly for the selfish reason I'd never get to see him, Audioslave or Soundgarden live.
I'm pretty sure many believe this led to Chester's own death.

I missed many opportunities to see Linkin Park. They were actually coming to my city the year he died. I didn't buy tickets. There was much regret.
I'd read that, and was going to mention that but I didnt because I was never sure how based in truth it was.
Yeah, it's still conjecture, but they were very good friends. Chester was the godfather to Cornell's son and he killed himself on Cornell's birthday.

A collegaue from work used to live in a small villaige called Lammsfuß. (lamb's foot) It's so small, that it has only three streets, one of which is named Lammsfuß too. My collegaue lived on that street. When she and her husband got divorced, they sold their house to a couple who had Lammsfuß as their surname! Apparently they desperately wanted to live on that street and even paid a little bit more for the house than originally estimated, just to make sure that it wouldn't go to somebody else.

These are the kinds of things I would most definitely do

Things I learned today:
It's actually illegal to give away/sell the digital copy of something you received for buying the physical copy. I always assumed it was one of those things where "they bought it, they can do with it what they want" but I guess that's not true.

I'm just taking the piss and trying to make fun of our place names mostly. We do that here too, though admittedly it's not too common.

You've just totally ruined our national stereotype as bastions of polite decorum, P-90. Now the whole world knows we're just filth. Plain and simple filth.

Excellent point.

There's a street near where I grew up called "Fanny Hands Lane", which always made me laugh - especially given the British English meaning of the word
"These are two hundred dollar Italian cashmere Kiki de Montparnasse stockings, Kurt. I'll only kneel in them if absolutely necessary."
