Default What the... Explain your ID/avatar

My avatar is from a 15th century Dutch painting titled "Ship of Fools."

My ID is after a 16th century European cartographer. He is credited with the first 2D world map.

What's your story

Mine is Magnum PI. He has a mustache. I like mustaches......nothing gay or anything. I don't want to see him naked.

My ID is the name of a spice blend I make and my avatar changes regularly. Today & only today the avatar is of a Bullwinkle balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade, it is the 7th Bullwinkle avatar I've used for the past week during the SM's comic book character game. Tomorrow, who knows?

My avatar is one of my favorite pictures of all time. The 2nd flag raising on Mt. Suribatchi on Iwo Jima. My ID is from Vassily Zaytsev, although I misspelled the one for my ID.

My avatar is a Jolly Roger flag. I usually stick with a pirate themed avatar due to the nature of my work. I work as a supply boat captain in the most piracy prone waters on the planet, the Gulf of Guinea, west African coast. My nick is derived from my street bike, a Yamaha Stratoliner. Pic not related...
