    The Mentors at the museum.



    I just hope that Greg notices that we were wearing our PF mentor uniforms.

    EDIT: Ivans post, but I split it out of the aircraft thread. Thought some others might like these pics.

    You know, I thought it was a bit odd when he first brought up the idea, But a few people did ask us about them while we were there, so they might have attracted some new visitors to PF. Also they also made it easier to spot each other initially.

    Hey Integral, be sure to send Janus that one shot that shows how large his bald spot is compared to mine.

    Wow, must have been a long day to warrant a change of clothes from the first picture to the second. :wink:

    Never say that the Mentors are not prepared!

    Who knew there was an official PF Mentor uniform?! And here I though the mentor's lounge was one of those wild, clothing optional type places, what with the hot tubs and stuff you have back there. At least that's what rumor says. I'll have to get our spy, Tsu, to check it out and report back.

    So if the three of you went to the museum, who took the picture of the all of you standing on the platform?

    Something's fishy...

    We had one of the museum staff take it for us.

    Too funny, that mentors also can morph themselfs into different body shapes as well!
    And wonderful, that you can share such great times.

    I believe that is part of the test to become a super mentor...shape shifting.

    Of course shape shifting is a mentor requirement, you don't think that Gregg takes just ANYBODY, do you?

    I was thinking it's such a shame Integral decided to shave his beard. Perhaps it was just too hot to keep it in the summer. And, Janus, you really need to work out or live a less stressful life or something; you're really not aging gracefully in those photos. :surprised

    That's no excuse. My stance on beard-growing is clear. Beards are cool, and having a beard increases the amount of respect you have by between 3 and 30 times, depending on the length and quality of growth. Astronuc knows this...

    That's why we are super mentors. You know, with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal mentors.

    Not to worry, I grew it back last night! I am seriously considering cutting my hair way back if this trip to Ireland goes through. Don't really think the old hippy look is a good thing take through customs.

    If you get the chance, have a look at Bill Bailey - Bewilderness (the DVD from his tour). He does a rather comical sketch about how his beard and big hair got him pulled at customs, and how his kazoo got confiscated because they thought it was a dope pipe.

    Well, with a beard that grows back that fast, no problem shaving to get through customs. :rofl: But, yeah, I agree, the long hair, long beard look is probably going to earn you some undue attention getting through customs.
