Right now I somehow feel like a rootless cosmopolitan .

This probably sounds ridiculous from someone like me who still lives within the same country in which he was born but anyway, join the club. I don't know how cosmmopolitan I am but ditto for the rootlessness. I feel being just a generic European.

Btw, do you surf with a phone? You seem to have problems with quote tags quite often.

Those are older as am I. Maybe I posted in thread that got nuked due to Achronos' ranting or something a few years ago, why I had those photos, some of the few you can find taken in earnest. It was a whole thing, but thanks for the compliments. They are hard to take.

JamesR's description of his imaginings of me was hilarious. I gotta find it.

Known fact to those who know me, I literally can't "see" things in my mind, so I can't, well see stuff in my mind (nor "hear" either) so I don't get pictures of people or really anything, if I try, I can make a simple geometric shape happen. Which leaves me fascinated by the fact others do.

So what did you think I looked like?

Known fact to those who know me, I literally can't "see" things in my mind, so I can't, well see stuff in my mind (nor "hear" either) so I don't get pictures of people or really anything, if I try, I can make a simple geometric shape happen. Which leaves me fascinated by the fact others do.

I wouldn't say I can "visualise" in my mind what I imagine a person to look like.  That looks and sounds like nonsense, but I can't really explain it much better than that.  I just have a sense, and it's hardly foolproof.

So what did you think I looked like?

Well, black, for starters.  The "new" white you is good too, but I think I bonded with the black orthonorm which formed itself in my mind.  I'm a little sad to say goodbye.  :)

It's funny, in finally puting a face to the name, to realise that my imagination had it all wrong.  :P

JamesR's description of his imaginings of me was hilarious. I gotta find it.

When JamesR didn't know I had a photo buried in this thing:

http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4703/dsc00240ap.jpg

What the heck, why not. Here is a picture of me visiting my grandmother wearing my favorite shirt, which also happens to be the shirt I wore to Pascha. I am highly anticipating seeing a picture of Orthonorm and Nektapolic. I imagine Orthonorm as being really old, possibly on the chubby side, with a huge beard. While on the other hand I imagine Nektapolic as being really tall with blondish brown hair, big green eyes and possibly 5 o'clock shadow.

Orthonorm, Nektapolic, get over here.

Holy crap my description actually wasn't that far off. Anyhow, I hope to be just like you when I grow up Jason :)

Btw, I googled your name, is this you?



It was first on Google for me.

LOL! To be honest, as much as I am as pale as they get, I haven't thought of myself as white hardly ever. I've used nearly every racial epithet for them, since I was young.

I don't feel black either. I don't talk like no (word to describe the white twist on Black English).

In short, I am all things to all people. Jumping around a lot as a kid and having to deal with blacks and white trash and being ripped out of my socio-economic class due to a brain malfunction allowed me to pass a lot.

I feel most comfortable in America around lower to working class blacks and whites, especially if the latter are from more rural backgrounds. Cause that's how I grew up.  I lived in a rural country tossed back and forth between the projects where all the blacks lived or a crummy trailer with the trash.

Your description was way off, you weirdo.

And yes that is the famous photo Achronos used for the explodingorthornormhead.gif.

It's a whole thing, had to pose for a photo I thought would go nowhere for a pittance of money. As I alluded to above, I had / have a thing about my appearance (for reasons too long and personal, I think I am hideous at best, which I am OK with, I just hate photos of myself). Anyway, so I've had almost no photos taken of me. But I promised I would sit for this one. I worked in a medical college at the time doing working IT and I grabbed a buncha clothes from various people in IT (you can imagine that motley crew, I didn't and don't wear glasses) and went all Isa for the photo.

When I saw it hanging in the college in 3'x2' glory I begged them to take the money back. I winced a whole lot later when I found it online then more when Achronos posted it here along with my entire biography, which is why the thread was nuked perhaps. Anyway, it was exposure therapy I hadn't planned on.

Orthonorm looks like if Beck and Tom Cruise had a baby, and that baby grew up to be a model for some sort of distinguished gentleman's clothing line.

Not bad, is what I'm trying to get at.

Edit: In the older photos, I mean. Don't know what's going on in the hat-bearing photo. I don't really frequent this thread.
