See, that's where you're wrong. You can change the colors on things. I can't. I haven't got Photoshop.

But thanks for the link, I'll see if I can figure something out.

I was about to suggest paint, but remembered you're a mac user anyway.

but alpaca offered and I have offered to edit it, so if you found one you liked (ignoring the colours), we could've changed the colours.

I sorta wish the missile pivoted, though. That way I could point it at people when they say something silly.

If you did, the thing would be like a Duke Compass: No matter which way the turtle is facing, the missile is pointing at Duke. :D

Or, it'd make the turtle fly like a helicopter; it can't keep you, John Stewart, Dan Quayle and Jerry Falwell in its sights at the same time, so it rotates really fast and generates enough lift to get the turtle off the ground.

Good thinking. If you give the missile special fins, I bet the turtle would be able to control the machine... :)

Hey, Bambi, there's a rule in the "START HERE" section that states: Please make an effort to have a substantive post. Please do not post just one word, as that is often annoying. Make an effort to have a complete thought, and use smilie-only responses under a quote sparingly. (Some games are partially exempt.) When constructing your post, give a thought to how it will be read by others, and what the reaction will be. We don't discourage controversial ideas or minority opinions, but we do discourage sharing them in ways that are more likely to encourage offense than discussion.

If you need to reread them, you can find them here:

Thanks!

I didn't post anything because I thought this was just a thread for avatars.

Will do. I'm still playing by the old rules, as in the ones that are posted in Announcements. I wasn't aware of a change.
