    I drew that on the pocket of a couple of my t-shirts. Almost as good of a conversation starter as ML. :D

    I've been trying to figure a way to engrave that sign on the side of the AR15 that I made with an unmarked 80% lower receiver. I'll probably use a tool bit mounted in the mill using the X-Y table movement to cut the lines, Cool symbol.

    What's an avatar? I assume something beside a religious figure...

    An avatar is a symbol used to represent something - i.e. a family crest might be an "avatar" of that family, etc. In the case of smokers, of course, when they invite you to have a cigarette, they'll use the term differently, as in "ava-low-tar", or "ava-full-tar", or "ava-dangerously-high-tar"... :D

    Look under the "user cp" and then under "edit option" and then all the way at the bottom under "avatars."

    This board has the option to let us have little symbols, figures, cartoons or whatever attached to our names. But those who are running it apparently don't have that option turned on (not complaining, btw).

    That is a pretty cool hobo sign, even be neat as a small iron on -like breast pocket of oxford shirt, etc.

    Yes, and apparently there are American hobo symbols, British hobo symbols, French hobo symbols and Swedish hobo symbols.

    Here are some links to the American hobo symbols: http://www.slackaction.com/signroll.htm
    http://www.extension.iastate.edu/pages/hancock/britt/chamber/hobosymbols.html
    http://www.worldpath.net/~minstrel/hobosign.htm
    http://www.allisonhunter.com/Signmakers/symbols.html

    As for the British, French and Swedish systems, I can't find any single listing of them, and the Symbols.com site is pretty hard to search (no actual word search), but many of the hobo signs are under the "H" word index beginning with "here are..." and "here they..." etc. http://www.symbols.com/index/wordindex-h.html

    Some examples...
