    Just for fun... I'm not making any claims here.

    A story involving the origins of my old avatar is in the fringe news.

    I thought it was about the creepiest [so called] ET photo that I'd ever seen, hence the choice. :biggrin:

    FYI, my current avatar is a highly magnified shot of microalgae with the fuel producing oil pockets stained red.

    So your saying your not really a "gray", but in fact you are a microalgae? What in the world has Tsu been feeding you?

    :yuck: is I guess a more appropriate emoticon. Methane is a the primary ingredient of um, flatulence.

    Microalgaes produce mainly sugars and long-chain hydrocarbons - eg for ethanol and biodiesel. :biggrin:
