I look kinda normal, but I'm not a fashion freak. Cut-off sweatpants and women's tank shirts in the summer, sweats in the winter unless I'm working, in which case I wear mostly long indian-embroidered dresses.

Little overweight but nothing that a weekly exercise regimen won't cure, no glasses (20/20 vision), no zits, two distinct eyebrows so the neanderthal thing ain't happenin either. Just kinda normal.

I'm really none of the above. I'm a 290 lbs soccer goalie whom likes shorts and a t-shirt and usually have on a sweatband and sandals. Or in other words, a gorilla always dressed for the beach

I've been told I don't look like a MUDding code monkey. But they were -wrong-, as their views on what code monkeys are to look like are outmoded! *glares*

Before I criticize most mudders I know, I'll say that I have glasses and out of shape, though not fat, and though I try with some success to be cool, my ego is used to being popped.

That said, most of the people I meet on muds would either proudly classify themselves as either 'Normal' or 'Pierced'. The normal ones usually aren't. I go out of my way to not Really get to know the people I play with... I form mental images of them based on their behavior, and I've never had one surpassed, or even upheld, just shattered, and occasionally mercilessly trampled upon.

Skinny, glasses. Other then that, I look normal. I also wear comfortable clothes and they do have to meet certain standards before I wear them. I don't really get called names, unless the call-er is so immature they ought to be back in grade school. But my thin-ness is natural and without my glasses I can't see clearly more then a few inches in front of my nose. But overall, most people wouldn't even think I mud. I've got the only-nerds-mud and the girls-can't-mud predjudices working against me (or for me, depending on your point of view).

I'm not really your stereotypical computer nerd either (stereotypes are always wrong anyway ) I am on the skinny side and do wear glasses, but I'm also a 2nd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do so that helps in some situations . So I'm pretty athletic, and I also do a lot of sports besides martial arts as well. I like to consider myself a fairly unique person

I think Hannah posted this just so everyone would look at her pic and swoon. She's just looking down on all of us mere mortals.

I'm semi-normal. Sometimes I dress nice, sometimes I wear t-shirt and whatever, sometimes I wear frames for glasses so I look like I almost wear glasses. I take showers regularly, I do not smell, I clip my fingernails and toenails. I brush my teeth at least twice a day. I even shave and put on deoderant. One time I even changed my underwear.

Pale (Lemme 'splain ta ya somethin'. I'm mostly swedish and danish. Do I need to 'splain ta ya why I dun tan? Huh? Huh?), skinny to fair build, depending on season, and glasses only for computer work (Heh. I'm far-sighted. Very far-sighted.), and I only wear what is comfortable. I _do_ eat pizza and _drink_ coke (Unless you meant the other kind of coke. Silly person.) when I MUD, but oh lordie, I'm definitely not overweight.

So, which option do I fit under? Huh? Huh? And just what do you mean by normal? Do you mean N'Synch, Britney Spears, annoying, irritating, teen pop star normal? If so, then I think you are righteously deserving of a flame.

I don't know if this is unique or common, since it wasn't a voting option...

I look like something between a rocker and a biker.

I have long hair, a mustache and a goatee.

I wear black jeans, black t-shirt, black Doc Martins and a black leather jacket when the weather is cool.

Oddly enough I don't really have any friends that look the same.

I wear what I wear, I weigh what I weigh, I eat what I eat . . .

Part of the joys of being online is not judging people by their appearances, yes?

I find that the people I meet at real-life MUD gatherings are, by and large, no different in appearance than any random sampling of the population, except for being heavily weighted towards being white and male.

Normal..i think you are like most of the population. Belong in the masses?

I think most of you got this poll wrong. I didn't want to know what you look like just which one of the answer is closest to you. When it reads "i drink coke" don't take it as "hey, I dont belong in that group I drink pepsi" . Seems like this far mudders are mostly normal people.

I dunno what to say..

I like to swim and go spear fishing (free diving, 3-prong.. aqualung and spearguns are for wimps! ). Now that I'm back from school for the summer, I've got a mean farmer's tan from working out in the fields. I'm probably going to have to go on a branding drive (my dad's a cowboy) in a couple of weeks. I also practice martial arts, and usually work out, though not so much now that I'm on vacation. I guess I look "normal" for outer-island Hawaii, but that's probably far from what most people consider "normal" to be.

I suppose I should have voted that I am skinny and have glasses, but since people stopped calling me names when I got tired of my bullies and broke a nose or two back in 8th grade, I figured, I can go as normal since I dress in comfy, nice clothes, and I look pretty much normal. Besides, what does it matter what people look like? I never really got that part of human behavior. Internet as an idea could theoretically make it easier to just be who you are, and nobody would say any different or care that much; the reality entirely opposes this idea since every chatter known to man will either be tall, dark, brawny, and own a fancy sports car, or blonde augmented vixens belonging in some odd porn fantasy land. It's sad, really.

I'm normal. It's the rest of the world which is deviant.
