Yet ironically enough, I was reminded of John Cleese.

Wuuut? :shock: Well, I AM german. But actually, I have a very "jewish" profile (in this crappy "nazi-manner") and I'm not blond-haired. According to the "Rassenlehre", I would have been a victim of "nazi-euthanasia".

Nobody has told me that before. But looking anew at my picture I can understand your imagination.

Well I was tempted to say that you were looming over us with your big evil German face, but I was fairly sure that would have had Nazi comparisons drawn from it. I'm not sure where a resemblance to John Cleese came from, there is definitely a German actor who you look almost identical to (hence why I said you had a really German face) but I cannot think what film I have seen him in or any relevent information. That will really annoy me now, trying to think of the person.

Although it brings up a point i've always wondered about, if i'm the only one who can determine nationality just from looking at someone. Admittedly it's not going to be incredibly accurate, but I do see differences between French faces and German faces, Korean faces and Japanese faces etc. Actually it's probably more the fact that I get increasingly annoyed that everyone spuriously guesses my own genetic origin, something which would seem patently obvious to me.

Scubduse looks like one of those tragic heroes who kicks a lot of butt but ends up suffering a lot throughout the movie, along with doing a big heavy dose of dramatic yelling and throwing chairs. He also ends up getting lots of girls but because of this, it causes tons of drama and emotional damage over and over while he's still trying to fight the main villain of the movie (and throwing chairs).

That's what my imagination leads me >_<

Can't deny, that I like this thought. :twisted:

BTW, did I said that you look very cute? Perhaps I could throw some chairs only for you? :lol:

No, my nails are just naturally shiny. It comes from eating well.

And, honestly, kentuckyfried, your picture bothers me on some level. The image suggests, to me, that because you are a nerd with an adoring woman on your shoulder, you are somehow better than everyone else on the internet. There is also a subtle "woman as property" motif in the way that you appear to be completely ignoring her, yet using her to assert your superiority. You may not have been thinking about that when you took the picture, but that was the first thing that came to my mind. I won't tell you exactly what Wendryn said (without my prompting, by the way), but she basically agrees. Your picture just doesn't sit well with me.
