    Like to share your thoughts about your/others' signatures ?

    Any specific signatures you fancy or detest ?

    For PF contributors/mentors : What makes you pick a certain signature line ?

    Whenever I see Ivan_Seeking's signature, I become nostalgic for the MIR and its mishaps ("Objects on MIR are closer than they appear").

    Actually, I have a very good memory of the MIR. Had to leave for work early, and while sitting at a busy, bright intersection next to the Air Force base and its airfield, I happened to look at the clock and think "If I were still home, I could look right over there to the WNW and see MIR right now. Oh, look, there it is now!" It was so bright you could still see it, even while sitting at a busy intersection. Then a train's horn sounded in the distance. What an image. Sitting in traffic, next to an airfield, a train in the distance, and a satellite cruising by overhead.

    Only thing missing was some kind of body of water (of course, around here, water's always missing).

    Oooh, that reminds me of the time that I went rafting on the Potomac. At the point that the river passed through the intersection of the borders of MD, WV and VA, we saw an old train running along a bridge, the other level of which had pedestrians and automobiles. To top it off, there was a plane flying overhead.


    BobG, you know your "Hemmi" signature is very misleading - and can be easily misunderstood by the common dolt (despite the spelling). Do you revel in this form of devilry ?

    Not at all. But I do think your signature is immoral. :biggrin:

    My current signature just seemed to me to be all too true.

    My favorite was "You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat.
    You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los
    Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly
    the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there.
    The only difference is that there is no cat." - Albert Einstein

    I don't know where I come up with this stuff.

    Did you see my latest? :biggrin:

    I collect quotes that I think are insightful, thought provoking, interesting, or funny. I just pick from my favorites for a signature.

    Hi everyone.

    My favourite signature is one that I've heard from a girl:

    "I'm naturally blonde.
    So please, speak slowly".

    :rofl:

    :grumpy:


    I haven't picked a signature yet. I used to have a nice collection I rotated on emails, but I've forgotten most of them. I probably shouldn't admit that in the same post where I'm feigning irritation about dumb blonde jokes. :rofl:

    I think the funniest signature I saw around PF was:

    If I have seen less than others, it's because some giant's shoulders were always in the way.
