My signature consists of:
A link to Teletraan I
A link to my Instruction Scan Archive
A quote from the "Ask Vector Prime A Question" page that used to be on Hasbro's website. Hasbro's interns apparently don't know about spell check.

...I've forgotten (in less than a week no less!) what my sig actually says...

As for my actual signature, when writing a capital G very quickly (my first initial) is sorta blurs into a half-S half-mess. This is followed by much worse. Then end is basically a bunch of vertical slashes.

EDIT: Oh yeah! "This is not a binary apple" Is a reference to "this is not a pipe" and that Dali with the guy with an apple-face. I can't remember the name of it now. Look, I was mildly inebriated and talking to someone who had just taken a fine-arts history exam alright?

I just changed mine, I feel so proud!

There original was a favourite of mine regarding the mathematical "proof" that bumblebees can't fly and the ridiculousness of this claim.

My current, is inspired by some of the arguments on the fora, whereby people try to yell their convictions about their oppinions as loud as possible wihtotu pausing to wonder why the other person has a different veiw....perhaps they have a reason for it.

I take it as a matter of pride that my sigs are (usually) of my own devising.

Apple face is called "The son of Man", and is also by Magritte, not Dali. Both paintings explore the relationship between what is seen, and what is there.

My signature comes from Marv in "Sin City", and a link to my soon to be resurrected website.

Right, see this is why I put it in binary, it was meant partly just to joke about what is seen (ie: what is the meaning of binary) but mostly to make it unintelligible without a translator so that it wouldn't strike people as a smug signature. (See Felltir's comment)

Mine is a standard closing, that reminds me of survival instinct.
Follows is my real name and my online moniker, modified into ASCII smilies of "the arts" (smiley face and frowny face) plus a third smiley of someone sticking out their tongue, not necessarily in that order.

My current one is a warning. Just in case anyone makes a sad mistake :(

"CAUTION: not intended for human consumption. If ingested, induce vomiting and contact your local health service immediately. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with eye, rinse with plenty of water. May contain silicon, and traces of nuts."

It was originally a lot longer, but I had to cut it down. My previous one was:

My current sig is:

Linguistic Anarchist - a title I collected from the Linguistics forums during an arguement on the rules of grammar. The post was entirely sarcastic, but I liked the way it sounded, so I adopted it. It includes a link to my deviant art page.
Darth Fluffy Muffin - a title given to my in jest by sith lord Darth Felt Tip Pen for succumbing to the dark side and going home sick from work despite having had so many days off recently. This one is a link to my blag.

There's a quote from Hawknc observing that "ANGELL IS SERIOUS BUSINESS" because I have no sense of humor.
Finally, I have a space at the bottom of my sig for whatever quote takes my fancy at any given time. At the moment is a quote from Felstaff that made me laugh, and also reminds me a bit of myself: "I glanced over something and just thought, 'wait, what? I should look into this', before a particularly shiny teaspoon on my desk caught my attention."

Wow, that is pretty. I just got a picture of Lothlorien...

The couplet in my signature is part of a poem called Spring and Fall, by Gerard Manley Hopkins, in which the speaker addresses a girl who is crying because of leaves falling off a tree. The couplet serves as a reminder to not let myself grow callused.

One of my favorite quotes from the movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Second and third place for making it on my signature (also quotes from that movie) are:

Perry: Look up "idiot" in the dictionary. You know what you'll find?
Harry: ...A picture of me?
Perry: No! The definition of the word idiot, which you fucking are!

Perry: A talking monkey, yeah. Came here from the future. Ugly sucker, only says "ficus".

Part of a larger quote, which I've quoted before:

"That's what a monoculture is. It's everywhere, and it's all the same. And it takes up alien cultures and digests them and shits them out in a homogenous building-block shape that fits seamlessly into the vast blank wall of the monoculture.

This is the future. This is what we built. This is what we wanted. It must have been. Because we all had the fucking choice, didn't we? It is only our money that allows commercial culture to flower. If we didn't want to live like this, we could have changed it any time, by not fucking paying for it.

So lets celebrate by all going out and buying the same burger."
