I might be changing mine to a random screensaver that caught my eye through a window(yes I'm a nosey bugger), "You say I'm a nobody, nobodies perfect, therefore I'm perfect :D ".

My signatures are now can count as psiritual because they are quoted from "The Philokalia" which is a book about many traits humans have and how to overcome them... sorta like The Art of War style but not the Art of War itself :wink:

My signature changes every so often as I tend to change my entire profile around once in a while.

My original sig was Zhang Bao's "Feel the power of my magiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiic" just because it was really irritating :twisted: I changed that to "Scars are souvenirs you don't lose" which is a quote from Raven and now my current sig is a reference to the movie Donnie Darko. The 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds is the amount of time remaining until the world ends.

I have a feeling that I'll be changing my profile in a week or two though and that'll mean a new sig....

I just changed my signature to one of pure evil. :twisted:

I honestly wanted to change it to:

知道就說知道.
不知道就說不知道.
不要知道說不知道.
也不要不知道說知道.
你知道不知道?

but that's too long :(

If you know it, say you know it.
If you don't know it, say you don't know it.
Don't say you don't know something when you know it,
And don't say you know something when you don't know it.
Understand?

Er, I think I get it.

If you know the answer say it,
If you don't know it, don't make up a bs answer
Don't Lie and don't hide.

I hope thats a good explanation.
A beautiful face can win popularity, but a beautiful hand can win respect.

Actually, to maintain the spirit of the tongue twister, the last line of

你知道不知道?


could be translated as, "You know?"

Yeah, you're right. Pardon my amateur translation skills. :oops:
I like your current sig a lot, BTW. :lol: How do you keep the Chinese characters in their correct form all the time without having to use the encoding?
