A while back Cyan, one of the few people who for a while made America’s Debate worth visiting, rose to the challenge of designing a vampire-platypus (“platypire”) image as a possible avatar on that site. The idea is, of course, a reference to this site’s original Romanian domain. In any case, it turned out that the image doesn’t work nearly as well at avatar size as it does in the original, and I don’t visit that site much since I found a much better one to satisfy my political-debate addiction, but it still seems worth sharing the results and thanking Cyan publicly for her efforts. She really did an excellent job; note especially that the platypus’s eyes and not just the bill have been grafted onto the following image, which must have required extra care.
