Your Problem Is Obvious!

In one of those “weirdly ironical” twists, yesterday’s really bad mood was both accentuated and relieved by a report on my local morning news that the Ohio State Fair would be opening today, and that the fair’s annual Butter Cow was all ready to go. I mean really, cows sculpted from butter? Life here in “The First World” is just so damned hard! :roll:

But that report did at least remind me of these hilarious Weird Al Yankovic videos… ;)

Reflections On A Lasting Peace

Reflections On A Lasting Peace…

A friend of mine shared the following video on Facebook, which does a fairly good job of outlining the history behind the Israeli / Palestinian conflict. The problem with this video is that the history it outlines only goes back to the conclusion of World War II, and thus, I think, paints a picture that is not entirely accurate…

Human Templates?

Call me crazy (again), but I’ve always been fascinated by what I see as repeating patterns in the appearance of human faces. You know, the things about a given face that reminds you of another face you’ve seen before. I can’t begin to count the number of times I’ve seen people that looked so much like someone I knew that I’d swear they had to be related. Hell, I even had a coworker curse me out once for ignoring her when she said hello to ‘me’ at the bank – when I’d never even been to that bank! To this day, I’m not sure if she believed it wasn’t really me. I do know that I’m glad my ‘doppelgänger’ wasn’t there to rob the place. I might still be in jail if she’d been called as a witness!

Anyway, I’ve often wondered if anyone has ever been crazy enough to try to prove that such ‘human templates’ actually exist. Well, photographer François Brunelle has made one hell of an effort to do just that!
