A couple of times in the last little while strangers on Facebook have emailed me asking to be my friend and whether I was at a science camp or other school related event back in the dim, dark ages of, say... 2003.
I am very flattered to be asked because, well, let's just say I finished my high schooling more than 10 years before that.
Then I briefly contemplate updating my photo.
Current profile photo: about 2005 (no flash. I like photos taken with no flash and nice, soft light)
This image was taken only 10 days ago. It may be a contender, although it does use a flash.
In remarkable synchronicity I was seeking out some old college photos (by the way, fellow collegiates, our alma mater turns 40 next year and they are looking for copies of the formal college photos for 1987, 1988, 1992 and 1993 - so give them a call if you have one of these) and I noticed that I probably don't have to update my image because there are some things in life that never change.
Exhibit A - 1997
Exhibit B - 1988
Exhibit C - about 1985
Exhibit D - about 1976
Chance that there will be a significant difference in what I look like in the near forseeable future?
... Approximately None.
