    This thread is inspired by @StatGuy2000 s post about race and ethnicity of PF members that has been deleted.
    I think it was a very interesting idea, so I'll try to rephrase the question so that it can't be banned for racism. It will also be a good update to earlier threads about how members are imagined by others.
    The task is to describe your physical appereance so that we can imagine you. Use whatever categories feel comfortable. Those truly brave can even post their real photos! I'm not so courageous :p

    So guess I should go first...
    I'm a 28 yo female, fair skin, short light brown hair, blue-green eyes. I'm only 150 cm short :p (hey, I could have been a great gymnast!).
    I'm short-sighted and wear glasses very similar to these upload_2016-8-25_20-11-7.jpeg
    My favourite clothes are jeans and T-shirt or sweatshirt in winter. I usually don't wear makeup (I'm lazy and have sensitive skin and eyes) but I like wearing colourful earrings :)

    For some reason, the member photo thread is no longer a sticky. :oldconfused: It has entries from 2003 to 2015.

    Oh, I haven't seen it! It's better than FB :)

    Cool photo, Jim! :) I always thought your avatar is your real photo, but you actual look is similar, so not a big deal. Looks like you had a great day on the sea!

    No worries, because it well all ways make you look like a man.

    oh don't worry, if Google conversion is right, 89kg for such height (182cm) is not so bad! I agree with @Pepper Mint it's a fine weight for a man :)

    Sophia are you also interested in old men's looks ? If so, we are in the same boat. Let's row till we reach the banks.
  13. Aug 26, 2016 #12
    I'm interested in looks of fellow members so I can picture them when I read their posts :)
  14. Aug 26, 2016 #13
    Just think of the magazine GQ...:wink:

    Btw, Jim, who's that guy holding you in the photo? :biggrin:
  15. Aug 26, 2016 #14
    I always knew you looked like this! This is the first picture I got when searching for gq uploadfromtaptalk1472208443167.jpg

    Thanks Sophia for being inspired by my (now deleted) post!

    As for me, I'm 40 years old (turning 41 in October), although almost everyone says I look younger than my age. I'm 174cm (5'8.5-5'9") tall and fairly lean at about 63.5kg (140lb) with black hair (with a touch of gray) and brown eyes.

    Here is a recent picture of me above in downtown Toronto, across from the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Well, not that recent -- the picture was taken 6 years ago, but I look more or less the same now as I did then. :)

    I'm 31 years old, 174 cm tall, and weigh 58 Kg (feel free to convert that to Fahrenheit or whatever you guys use :P).

    I'm Egyptian, as some people might be able to guess from my photo.

    *Photo of me in front of my family's house. Honest!

    I am 5'4.5" (164 cm) tall, weigh 130 pounds (59 kg), and I am 56 years old. I am kept young by my ten-year-old daughter,


    My wife recently said to me "How can you eat twice as much as I do, and stay so skinny?" My avatar picture (below) was taken two years ago.

    For berkeman and Jim: look at the trace on the scope. I give this as a puzzle to students.

    Okay, I'll play. I'm 6' 2" tall, and 185 lb. I just turned 72. Two of my most favorite activities are riding my motorcycles and going on hiking or backpacking trips in the Washington Cascades and Olympics. The backpacking trips are typically from two days to a week, sometimes longer, and we cover anywhere from 25 to 55 miles, with much of it off-trail.

    I have four motorcycles, all Harleys. This is probably my favorite - a 1948 FL ("Panhead"). I have another that's older -- 1946 -- but still younger than I am, and two newer ones, a '91 FXR and a 2000 Superglide.

    Sadly, I don't show up on film. Or even cast a shadow.
