So idk if this is just me, but I always link people to and remember them by their profile pics. So when people change their profile pictures, I get all confused like "who posted this?"

is this just me-

I have had difficulties with this too. Be prepared for yet another change of my profile pic, since the new old one is sideways. :sarcastic:

Why did you pick that as your profile pic? I've always wondered.

Same! I changed mine once on here and it looked sooooo wrong... I kept confusing myself thinking I was logged in on the wrong account or something. I changed it back. Haha

I have a beard (though it’s not white yet, unfortunately), and I love the Smurfs. I won a costume contest a few years back dressed as Papa Smurf. If you look closely in the pic, he is holding a test tube.

Nope, I feel the same way. I made one change in almost 3 years. I think I’ll keep this one.

Yes, the test tube is the best part.  I remember when I first joined thinking that was clever.  Lol.  I haven't watched the Smurfs' in forever, why is he holding a test tube?  Is that a reference to something in the movies?

When I change my profile pic I always keep it within a common theme, that being South Dakota. However now that I have our franchise's logo, I doubt I'll ever change it again, unless our logo were to change.

Papa Smurf is holding a test tube because in basically every episode he invents some potion to save the Smurf village.
