    Default How often do you change your desktop background?

    A generic nature shot. A warming family photo. A gazelle being mauled by a lion. Aren't background images great? A perfect way to display your interests and/or psychopathy in one simple visual. And everyone loves customisation!

    But do you stick to just one background, changing it hardly ever, or do you change it more often, whenever you see something that screams background material?

    Do you even bother looking at the background, or does a plethora of windows keep it hidden from view?

    I use one of those default Windows slideshows. They have very nice nature photos there.

    When I was a young lad it was usually a picture of a gir with big knockers. Now that I have had a chance to grow older and found out how to see that in person (which is much better than a computer image) I have been using a window default browser, or if I do change it it will be a picture of nature or something like that.

    I change it probably every couple of weeks. Mine right now is the art nouveau Sailor Moon I currently have as my FB cover. But I've been thinking of changing it. To what? Who knows!

    whenever I feel like it...

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.
