What The Heck Do They Look Like Anyway?
What do fellow posters look like?

I have a feeling this is a thread that's probably not going any where. But here goes.

I have often wondered what fellow posters look like. Those of you that have gone to Pub Con when you meet the other participants are they like you imagine them to be? Taller, shorter, stouter, skinner etc? Who surprised you the most?

I thought it might be interesting to paint a word picture description of ourselves, warts and all.

Here's me, People say I look a lot like Robert Redford, NOT!

Well actually I am 5'11" ( I pass myself off as 6 feet). Blond greying hair.
slightly balding, Fair complexion, capped teeth. blue eyes, slender, but with a spare tire,somewhat athletic, wear glasses when I read or on the computer.
Some what lazy and disorganized but when I am on my game I can be pretty damn
sharp!

No,they wont raise any statue of me when I am gone but who wants any pigeon crap on their shoulders anyway?!... KF

Anyone?...Anyone?

Awrrright Lawman, Your a big dude. Pictured you short and stout like a lot of
southern court house lawyers. Very pretty wife! Too bad she married so far beneath herself. :o)...KF

PS. Thanks for posting the pictures. Can you point out Brett Tabke?

I have never seen a picture of him before. Thanks again!

Anybody know why?

50, 5'8", black hair (with a little white), brown eyes, medium build, clean shaven, glasses, and according to my girlfriend, a nice butt ;) , not that that matters here, though I do sit on it a lot typing these posts. And to my knowledge, there is no picture of me on the Net, but there is one of my Basset Hound.

There's a turn-up. I didn't know I was in any of the PubCon photos, but here I am gobbing away to someone who'll listen at London PubCon 2005.

I'm thinking of the famous New Yorker cartoon, "On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog."

Soon, us beautiful people will be able to enjoy the same status we have in real life thanks to:

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14 --NYT-- A Web start-up company with some of the same backers who helped catapult YouTube to glory wants to do for live video chats what YouTube did for video watching.

The company, TokBox, allows people with Webcams and broadband Internet connections to conduct face-to-face chats inside a Web browser. Users can visit its site, www.tokbox.com, or add a TokBox module to their pages on social Web sites like MySpace....

Old and wrinkly, bent over, whiskered with thinning hair, and I wheeze when I cackle. I'm often seen with a cool drum that the chicks like. If you've ever played the Gizmo Quiz then maybe you'll find my pic.

Almost 59 years of age, about 5'10", overweight in a cuddly sort of way, bad knee joints, deaf, balding without stretching to a comb over, a bit deaf but general health as good as can be expected after all these years of drinking and good living.

(I was once closer to 5'11" do we shrink as we get older?)

Memory failing? ;)

I think so. I've always been 6' even, but the last time I was measured I was under 6' and all the stretching in the world couldn't get me to 6'.

When asked I still say I'm 6' tall, lol

Yup, apparently we shrink by around 2cm during the day due to gravity compressing your spine. So if you want to measure your height, do it in the morning.

lawman, Mrs. Lawman is hot, good job!

About me, I'm 28, 5'9", brown eyes, brown hair, designer stubble. I can get away with an athletic build if I'm wearing a jumper, and have a crown on the back of my head giving me a permanent tuft, like Fry off Futurama.

The proper term is "settling" not shrinking.

When things settle, their girth often increases in proportion to the loss of height.

hehe, these threads have come up a few times, when you talk with people so often it is a bit strange to not know what they look like, though I think I have gotten used to that now.

people are usually surprised with how I look, as my nick and being a coder gives them a ton of other images.

6'3", shaved head (by choice, no balding), blue eyes, earrings, tattoos, lazy shaver so often facial hair of some type

if anyone cares, I sure don't ;)

and hey lawman's wife is a wonderful lady, one of the sweetest people I've met, though I hear she's pretty tough too.

Those of who like me are cursed with rugged good looks tend to shy away from revealing their visage on line. It would attract too much attention from the ladies and make the men either jealous or suicidal.

Very interesting replies. I feel like I know you guys a lot better now.

BUT! We haven't heard from lot of regulars on the forum and especially those

who post a lot to Foo.

How about these guys? Habtom, Webworks, Page One Results, Life In Asia

Netmeg, Essex Boy, Quadrill, the three Vinces and lots of others, too many to

mention.

What about all those hardworking moderators, we need to know you better.

Brett T. you could pitch in too.

Don't drift through life nameless and faceless. Come on in, we are all family!

People say I look like Denzel Washington, with a bit of a lighter skin, and exactly as tall as him. :)

No I don't act. According to Wikipedia he got married the year I was born, but no he is not my father.
But yes, I do want to meet him someday.
