Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (now with 20% more fleeting!)

I had a concussion nearly four years ago. People are now worrying me that I have some post-concussion symptoms. Well, really, most of them. But four years? Certainly those things can't stick around for that long—it wasn't even a terrible concussion. I'm not sure if I should get this looked into.

Mine is a 'chance avatar' I made. I devised the grid in Photoshop, and then went to random.org and got a list of 100 random numbers from 0-100. These numbers represented a per cent greyscale value, and I then filled them in there respectively. The result is my avatar.

But my awful sense of humor aside, when I do fill up the gas, I usually try for palindromic numbers, simply because I like symmetry in numbers. $25.52, and so on.
