I'd have to grab my camera for that!

BTW, when does your profile pic begin to show next to your name? Any insight into that? I just created mine but it's not showing even though I set it as my profile pic.

I think you'll like it. I took this picture myself:

I tried that, but it's not popping up yet. I was wondering if there was a delay for any reason.
