Science-related smilies?

  1. Feb 18, 2013 #1
    I often have problems finding the right smiley to express the right nuance or implied interpretation of what I mean. An example of this is that, being a science forum, I find the lack of a "Muuhahaha" mad-scientist cackle somewhat frustrating. In addition, the "devil" smiley just doesn't have that gloating, evil, anticipatory smile that I find truly expresses my soul. Furthermore, there is no chemist with a test-tube, biologist with a microscope or butterfly net, physicist with a A-bomb (in fact,that would make a nice background to the muuhahaha smiley) or anything really science related ... not even an Einstein!

    Is there any chance of adding some science-related smileys to the current set?

    You can always google the smiley you want and then insert it in the post by using the

    Code (Text):

    [PLAIN]...[/PLAIN] [Broken]
     
    tags.

    For example th_Einstein.gif

    I doubt that the demand is big enough to actually implement it in our forum. Well, maybe Greg is really bored :tongue2:

    I wouldn't mind a few more. Sometimes the russian-roulette icon of the guy blowing his brains out suitably captures my mood...

    It's not science related as such but I'm wondering where this one came from? An older version? http://physicsforums.bernhardtmediall.netdna-cdn.com/images/icons/icon6.gif [Broken]

    :cool:
