Orthonorm looks exactly like what I thought he would. Just like my friend Gordon.

Anyways. I guess I'll join the ranks. Me in all my non-glasses glory.


Is this some pop cult reference I do not know?

Or is your friend truly that cursed?

He'll be in my prayers.

Nah he's a real person. You have that Thom Yorke thing going on a little.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

What do I look like?  I look like me.

I was told that I looked like Ricky Nelson.


Since he had been dead for a couple of years, I don't know if it was a compliment. :P

Wow, Isa finally got his picture up! (Yes, I went back and read this thread from page 1!) I do see the resemblance somewhat, but there is also someone else that I can't put my finger on...

You have that Thom Yorke thing going on a little.

But MUCH more handsomer! From certain angles he is my doppelganger.

As I said though, I've had at least four people think I was really him. And girl literally trembling at the fact.

Can't imagine what it is like for a good looking rockstar.

You don't play one well. Your lack of shorts, use of black show you to be a shrewd traveler. If only I could see your feet, then we could have a full verdict.

But yes smiling in front of a fountain in front of a museum is absolutely verboten.

The smiling is the worst offense.

Have you upoaded it to an image sharing site?

Try imgur.com and when you upload it go to the section that says "Message Boards" and copy that link and paste it here.
