When It Rains It Pours Department
Both Gus Walker, The Mapinator, and Mike Pellegatti, The Videoshooter, recently sent me Historical Twins based on my visage. Here's the first one from Mike:

The photo is from The Great Train Robbery and depicts an outlaw shooting at the screen at the end of the movie (allegedly the first "Western" to tell a story), and supposedly movie patrons ran for the exits when he fired his shot, without sound of course.

The second one is not as flattering, vanity wise, but dammit, Gus, it's pretty darn close. Or should that be too close for comfort?
