    Certainly not Orion's belt. I doubt it has any relations to the traditional belt.
    Am I right about that?

    Not quite and correct in that: It has absolutely nothing to do with a traditional belt, but Orion's belt IS a step in the right direction, though a little far afield. Think of something a bit closer to home.

    A stylized variation of a tree pentacle from the Tarot.

    OK, closer to home. The Egyptian Pyramids were built in relative position to match the constellation Orion, with the Nile as the Milky Way.
    But that's not it. Just thinking out loud. More hints!

    Your last Avatar Questionnaire was obscure, so this one must be a doozie.
    (Not literally, of course).

    Actually, the last one is really, really obscure now since it has nothing to do with the avatar image currently being displayed in those messages.

    The last one was

    But another hint: Closer to home, but still a belt that's out of this world.

    Sorry, NogDog, you're WAY off... but it is a symbol of SOMETHING.


    Oooooh, I love being a geek...

    I keep thinking celestial phenomena. Is that right?
    The asteroid belt?

    Sorry for my long absense. Asteroid Belt is DEFINATELY on the right trail. Now for something a bit more specific.

    I got a 404 error until I changed .htm to .html .

    In any case: YES! It is the astronomical symbol for the asteroid 12 Victoria. So, who wants to toss in to something obscure?

    Try this:

    I knew it was something astronomical. Good one, Mr Initial Man!
    Here's my donation to the obscureness.

    I'll try something user friendly on you guys.

    Nope, this has nothing whatsoever to do with music.
    Think back...

    I'll be nice on you guys and include a subtle hint in every post here.
    That includes the post where I introduced this graphic.

    Well, that's interesting, but perhaps more interesting would be explaining why you would want the symbol for that asteroid as your avatar. Are you an astronomer with a hobby of studying the history of British monarchs? Are you from one of the many cities/territories/etc. named "Victoria"? Are you a Kinks fan? Is your significant other named Victoria? Do you just like picking out totally obscure graphics that have nothing to do with you and use them as avatars? Inquiring minds want to know!
