Yes, he seems like an absolutely normal non-antipode to me, too. That said, very cool impression, Inzil.

Seems you're the only one gifted with the ability to detect antipodes.

No, I know what's going on. Mith, since only you see the difference, you must return to your universe!

Very handsome, and a bit dangerous-looking!

TGEW
, you should consider handing out insulin with those pictures - the two of you are just too sweet together! Impressive backdrop too.

Here's a recent one of me, documenting a serendipitous encounter with a representative of the order Lepidoptera.

Still got the archaeologist/historian look, but the Lepidoptera makes you look like an entomologist. I got it - that picture belongs in a time travel scifi film that's a mix of Indiana Jones and early Darwinism! It's awesome!

Haha, I guess it must be the noses. I am taller than the boy, though. You must notice that. I have to point it out at every convenient moment.

Indeed, for those of us who have not the fate of the Elves.

You could always update your pic, though. I'll bet the ravages of Time are not as severe as you might fear.

I beg to differ! More Entishness is what we need. Too many treeish Huorns!

Pipe Twenty Years Gone...

Being it is Tigerlily Gamgee's birthday, it got me to looking at this thread she created. I guess I was surprised that the photo page still worked. Twenty years ago when that pic of me was taken, I had hair ... long hair ... still flew my 1970's freak flag even though it was getting a bit sparse on top. The greybearding was well underway, and it was a totally different life back then.

Now, I give myself a #1 buzzcut every six weeks, and the greybearding has progressed to whitebeard. I have a different wife who I love very much, I live on a different continent, and Life is Good!

Since it’s been several years and the last photos I put here seem to no longer exist, except in some wibbly-wobbly internet dead zone. Here’s a new one with my sister-son. Can’t believe he’ll be turning 3 in a few weeks. You can’t tell him any secrets either, he randomly shouted out a convo from about a month ago telling everyone I liked coffee.
