Feel free to add your own!

I could be wrong, but I think that's a Hubble Deep Field pic. Very nice!

Go here http://hubblesite.org/gallery/
there is tons of pics. you can get different sizes and resolutions They get the pics even before they hit the news or Discovery channel. That pic is mind blowing. Are we alone? Look at all those galaxies!

Ohhhh,

That one is so cool, but is that an alien in the middle?

Just wondering if this means we've found proof? \:D

Ahhh yes, I see just-born baby stars being let out of their stellar nursery, still surrounded by wisps of nebulocity. But you guys, we don't have to stay stuck in outer space! Come on guys, let's see some more! How about your favorite classic car or your favorite warplane or your favorite animal? I found a COOL looking picture of a green mamba snake in a black background room which is poised to strike, but I didn't want to scare anyone, I did that once with my "Where's Waldo" trick post and got a lot of flak for it.

My wallpaper is a picture of my nephews from Christmas -- but I don't think I'm allowed to show that here. \:\) Love the picture though. \:\)

Wow, Mike5, that's awesome, got it as my desktop now.

I wouldn't mind having a 1920x1200 of the Hubble shot though. Absolutely gorgeous stuff, I've always loved space, even went to space camp :-)

My wallpaper is from the series Kyle XY that's now being aired by BBC two.

Plot:"Kyle is a sixteen-year-old boy, found in a forest area outside of Seattle,without any memories of an earlier life. Kyle is like a newborn baby in his lack of knowledge of human social life: He doesn’t know the simplest things, like how to eat or drink, and cannot communicate with others easily in the beginning. When Kyle walks NAKED into a nearby town, he is picked up by the police. As they cannot find his records, he is taken to a juvenile detention facility, where it is discovered he doesn’t have a navel. Nicole Trager, a psychologist, is interested in Kyle because of his gift for art and his innocence. She realizes Kyle doesn’t belong behind bars and brings him to her home while the police look for his family. The series follows Kyle and the Trager family as Kyle develops socially and searches for answers to his past."

Raine Maida, my favorite musician and celebrity. I've sent him fan-mail several times and gotten letters back each time.

Very cool pic, SuperTramp7981. I had several of their albums as well back then.
