If you'd taken a minute to research Boardwalk Empire on Wikipedia, you'd have learned that many of the characters were real people. Honestly, you should have been able to infer this; it's a drama about Prohibition and the rise of gangsterism.

I'll send you an alternate you can use as your avatar.

That's not how roulette works dummy. You get what you get. Like when you put the barrel of an old revolver to your temple after spinning the cylinder with wild abandon.

Arnold Rothstein is a brilliant and ruthless gambler who leads the Jewish mob in NYC. In complete control of his person (except when playing poker, oddly enough), he's a careful strategist.

I picked him for you since you don't usually join the political fray on this forum, but you make good points when you do.

I usually don't ask why I get the avatar I do, but since you're so well thought out my curiosity is getting the best of me.

You can be aggressive, but you also know when to stand back and let things slide.

Nice

This roulette has made me curious about Boardwalk Empire. I never watched it, even though it's the kind of show I enjoy.

Some people say it's slow-paced for a show of this kind, though I didn't personally think so. Admittedly, my fondness for the '20s would have kept me entertained even during the supposedly slow parts.

He's a college kid, I'm a college kid. I can see the connection.

Any other reasons?

You're both pretty sharp, so there's that. Sadly, Boardwalk Empire never explored the fungal mob in Detroit, so there weren't too many characters to match with you. Those dapper 'shrooms must've transported a whole sea's worth of whiskey over from Canada. They don't make gangsters like Polypore Joe anymore, and the way he whacked Bobby Morel is the stuff of legend.

Undead Icon (War3)

We need a scary person to organize a spooky Halloween avatar roulette. Any ghouls available?

I had an idea for a roulette involving music, boobs and meatballs - I've been wanting to do The Sopranos, but that can maybe wait until after Halloween unless nobody wants to do one.
