So, somebody brought to my attention that there exists a club for "scientists with luxuriant flowing hair". Can I even resist joining? But they want photographic evidence, so, the question is, does anyone have a (preferably digital) photo of me that shows off my hair? And if so, would you be willing for the LFHCfS people to use a copy of it?
Plaited might do, if you can actually see the plait; there are photos of plaits on the site. I admit if I'm trying to convince them that my hair is not only long, but luxuriant and flowing, loose would be more suitable.
It doesn't devour souls. You only have to look at Holywood's stars to see that.
I'm really not sure what that's supposed to mean... though it does suggest some interesting ramifications. If looking into the camera sucks your soul out, surely it should get spewed back out again, suitably magnified, on watching the big screen. Which makes going to the cinema an intensely religious experience (ObPratchett: Holywood).
And if you had a video camera and television screen connected to it facing each other, a person walking between would trigger a chain reaction based on the laser principle. Though I'm not sure if that would result in the amplification of a single soul to higher and higher levels, or the production of more and more souls.
The former has frightening possibilities for redemption as a weapon -- point the gadget at a single person and they vanish in a puff of transcension. The latter, by contrast, sounds much more benign. It would solve the current mass shortage of souls that results in נשמות endlessly getting recycled, and would enable us all to achieve nirvana in far fewer reincarnations.
Ooh, hello, you're back on LJ! Does that mean we're goint to get to hear about your trip round France (hint hint)?
Do you have Richard's address? Cos I tried to email him via his website to ask about using something modified from his picture as a userpic, only the website is way out of date. So I'm using the picture anyway, though I feel vaguely guilty about this.
I think this picture would do better than the one with the mask though; you can't see I'm wearing a mask in it, but you can see my hair much better! Obviously I'd crop it so it was just a picture of me.
