What do you look like? (2010)

I can tell that eye contact isn't such a big thing in your family.

This was before (1960):

This is after (a screen grab, recent):

Whatever the product might be that makes a before and after like this, don't buy it.

Your second one throws a 404. Looks like you put in a slash instead of a dot.

this just proves that not only the bod goes - also the mind

"I can tell that eye contact isn't such a big thing in your family."

Not that day. I think they were listening to a dissertation by a wandering neighbor.

OK, I'm not that big on posting family photos, but one I received today of my grandnephew and his 'lil sis was just too funny to pass up . . .

Okay, I cheated. For a little 1x1 originally for Twitter we blew up my image. Here's the original picture showing the size of my face next to the shuttle:

It appears the excitement wasn't unanimous.

@ LReavis

I worked with high tech even back in the sixties. This communication device was used prior to the cell phone. Waaaaay prior to the cell phone.

How do I do this to photobucket...when I copy their image code I get this and when I use the way SCS says to do it I get a photobucket logo saying it's been deleted

yup. I was so proud of that transmitter. I designed it when I was about 17 after spending 7 years (since age 10) reading about electronics and building a number of smaller transmitters. After collecting parts for 3 years as bargains appeared, I built it at age 20 through 21 (1956-7) just before going into the army. When I got out in Jan., 1960, I took the photo. Shortly after that, transistors became cheap enough so that I could design and build an SSB exciter (pardon the jargon) that worked really well. That was my last major radio project.

I continued to design and build electronic apparatus - mostly for researchers in psychology - until I got my Ph.D. in psych in 1967. Even as recently as the 1980s I was designing and building logic circuits part-time to automate factory machinery. But when IBM PCs got cheap, I substituted them for the hard-wired circuits and took all the logic signals out of the serial port to control the machines ("the world's largest lathe" was how the German manufacturer marketed the first machine that I controlled with a PC).

But the trouble with designing circuits was that I got so caught up in the projects that it interfered with living and sleeping. It was a good day when I got rid of all the equipment - I don't miss it at all. Nor psychology, for that matter . . .

Vegas is much more fun (soldering wires is a crashing bore), and I can turn off the computer at night and not be troubled by the projects (usually). I never burn my fingers, either.

Yes, it appears that bliss is but a one-way lane in parts of my family . . .

OK, I'll join the fray here - this is me hiding behind my daughter when she was ready for the senior prom (she is much better looking than me !! )

Ok, here's my scary ugly face....

Actually, I was setting up a camera and hit the remote shutter and captured the only photo of me in ten years.

Yes, it worked.

Congrats on the new you!

Way to go, GG!! Congratulations on your "new look". I'm a 36 year member of WW and it has been a great trip. Ups and downs, of course, but for the last 12 years it has been steady and below goal.

This thread seems to be in a 2011 cycle, so I'll add a current one for this year. Yes, they're going passed soooo quickly!

EDIT: Odd, I believe I've formatted the link correctly, but no image. Undoubtedly better that way!

EDIT2: query string? OK, I see the query, but that's what Facebook says is the public link. So you will have to educate me.

I'm sure you did, but it's the query string "?" that's throwing it off.

Mikey your daughter has your eyes... very nice photo!

I'll give a try with Serena's image ...

let's see if that worked.


Odd. The link is completely correct. Must be this forum software can't handle it properly.


Ahhhh, the light dawns. Serena, that was the link to the facebook page of your photo, not the photo itself. You need to link to http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/181586_1834657232220_1414115853_32086960_6736385_n.jpg

Ah! Thanks Kelly. So, I had to "copy image location". Hope I remember that for the next time!
