OK OK OK....
Work was kicking my arse.
And I have a third project I'm doing at home.
And I was just told I have to train a class in java next friday (which will be my first class and need to review it).
But I didn't want to let you people down (that, and I really want to write JE's, but don't want to get harassed for not putting up photo contest stuff). I only am giving you guys a directory list of pics (which you can click and see) so you'll have an idea of what everyone looksOK OK OK....

I only am giving you guys a directory list of pics (which you can click and see) so you'll have an idea of what everyone looks like. No list of players, I'm STILL accepting pictures (so check back, cause the page can grow with more pictures).

Obviously, a number with a letter (like 01a.jpg 01b.jpg 01c.jpg) is the same person, different pics (you can submit up to 5 pics of yourself).
Now, I'm turning on comments. If you've met someone, or know, dead on, who someone is, don't give it away. It'll be a game, and you'll have an advantage. But feel free to guess people if you have no clue. Also, feel free to give me some ideas of 'comments' to give to people (compare people to celebrities, etc...). Start your own lists (best looking chick, etc...). And have fun.


Oh yeah, the link? http://marotti.com/slashdot2/

Yeah, I took the old contest down, and those with mirrors, please do the same, too keep things a little fair. No, I didn't use a single picture from the old contest.

To reply twice...

Didn't his JE say the list is still open so he can't provide it?

If he submitted a list of the current participants, then we could compare it to the final list, and diff to find the late entrants and then determine at least the pool from which to choose their owners, eliminating the early entries. :-)

Not that I would do anything like that.

I think he won't be able to submit the names of all contestants: remember in the original journal entry says that -if you can- contestants should try to submit the picture to him without revealing your true idenity.

So if some people just created a random hotmail address with bogus information and sent attachments that do not indicate their idenitity, then FortKnox won't know who it is. Remember: he was rather disappointed that he couldn't participate in the guessing last time because he already knew who was who.

Re:Very well then. (1)

robi2106 (464558) | more than 10 years ago | (#7117507)

Didn't he say that you should submit photos with some identification in their name? i.e. Use the /. name i nthe photo name?

May be I'm all confused here...

My first pass (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#7111193)

OK, I'm ready to make my first pass at some of these, even not knowing who is entered. I'm not covering everyone... just some that for some reason I may have some idea about.
  1. Mmm... Now *that's* someone I could have fun with!
  2. johndiii? trying to decide on #3 or #24. Or maybe another entirely.
  3. FortKnox? -- This is a fantastic picture, and this one is in the running with #44 for my cutest guy.
  4. Somehow, I feel like I know this person. I don't really, but I feel like I should. Weird. But also in the running for cutest guy; I'm a sucker for beards.
  5. Now *that* is an adorable child. *Someone* is very lucky to be HER momma!!
  6. eugene ts wong? He looks pretty pure to me!
  7. This could also be FK, because it looks like his wife may have made him get this picture taken, and he keeps bemoaning male pattern baldness (which I happen to find sexy, so don't take that as an insult!)
  8. SamtheButcher? ('cause he looks awfully.... tall.) ;-)
  9. Wish I could get a reverse angle of this pic -- just to check out the butt. Then I think I'd know for *sure*
  10. There's something about this guy that has definite sex appeal. Can't put my finger on it, but it's there. Definitely.
  11. Red Warrior? Is that you, darlin'?
  12. Whoever this is, that's some beautiful hair. Great for running one's fingers through. Just thought you should know.
  13. The Grand Canyon! (No idea about the guy, though.)
  14. Looks like someone ELSE loves her breasts, eh? Makes two of us, sweetheart. (I mean I love mine, too. But I'm sure that you'll find many here who love yours, as well. Certainly fulfilled gmhowell's request for spanking material!!)
  15. A sweet young thing, ripe for corrupting. Is this a high school prom pic? Mmmm... high school boys. :-)
  16. intermodal?
  17. Oooh... a domestic one! Fixing breakfast for the vixen he managed to nab the night before, no doubt.
  18. hmmm.... could it be.... cyranoVR?
  19. solemndragon -- by process of elimination, I think. I'm going to refrain from various complimentary remarks because the guys would start getting those lesbian fantasies going through their heads. All I will say is that you *really* don't look short. Wow.
  20. blinder? -- this pic gets my vote for the most 'tude. But he's also pretty damn hot, too. Mmm mmm mmm.
  21. DaytonCIM? (or someone w/ Southern California connection)
  22. Sexy eyes or just stoned? Is there a difference? Anyway. Another hottie.
  23. Another potential for johndiii, purely by virtue of the apparent vintage of the pics -- decor, wardrobe, and that rocking horse -- the CPSC long since canned those because fingers get pinched in the exposed springs. See how logical I am?
  24. baldass newbie? Why? I dunno. It's a dark damn picture. But from what I can tell, he's *definitely* geekalicious!
  25. I can't guess objectively on this one. I took a picture of one of my boyfriends that looked so much like this it's not funny. So I can only think of him when I see this photo.
  26. mekkab? blinder? Whoever it is, very stylin' dude. B&W is a nice touch.
  27. Dude. Nice hair.
  28. OK. WTF scanned a frickin' T-SHIRT?!
  29. glh? (cute wife!!)
  30. rdewald?
  31. MonTemplar?
  32. OMG! It's a cultural revolutionary! Watchout!! (Just kidding, dude. Nice shirt.)
  33. Definitely wins the hottest couple vote -- hard to say who's sexier, the chick or the guy. Yowza.
  34. Again, this is in the running for my "cutest guy" vote. Cute, clean cut. Nice. Very nice.
  35. Drinking's a crutch, dude.
  36. OK. Who entered my fucking BROTHER in the contest? This is like *really* close.
  37. bmetzler?
OK. I know I failed miserably at voting on the computer equipment thing (but I did out the gay guy!!). Please don't make fun of how badly I guessed here. That's all I ask.

Oh, and I reserve the right to change my guesses at any time, since I'm the first one (that I can tell) to post mine here. :-P

....Bethanie....

Re:My first pass (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7111227)

I'm sad, I didn't make your list. And I serious look like I'm 14 in the pic.

Re:My first pass (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#7113101)

OK, Dave. Lemme look again.

Guys who look about 14 and could be you:
#8, #14, #19, #35, and possibly #36
My guess is that you are #8 -- the thumbs-up attitude just fits, dude.

Oh, and a revised list (because I was being quite reserved last night) of guys with some serious sex appeal. Not the ultimate judgment, mind you, just guys that make *my* list! (some are repeated from my original post):
#2, of course

#4, mmm facial hair & nice glasses
#5, ditto
#8, clean-cut, young & fresh. Juicy like a fresh apple!
#12, I'll pass on the pepper, thanks! You're spicy enough!
#13, awesome presence
#17, something in the way you hold yourself. Nice.
#24, in a really sweet way
#27, it's in the attitude. Totally.
#30, oh-so-sultry. Damn!
#32, yes. Definitely Hunk-a-licious.
#33, it was a really good ex-boyfriend. :-)
#37, except that girl gives him a distinctly "taken" quality
#38, Looks like he could be a *lot* of fun!
#43, including the girl
#44, again. Clean-cut, facial hair, non-nerdy glasses. Yum.
For those of you who didn't make the sex appeal list -- it's probably because you came off as too young, too married, too earnest, or just too... I dunno... out of my league, I guess I'd say (as if the sexy guys are in my league! Ha!). You can guess at which you might be. :-)

Oh, and #28 -- I also want to submit a guess for spumoni fettucini, 'cause he's in So Cal, too. That's it for now. :-)

I tend to prefer shorter hair, myself (aka "clean cut," I guess).

And sorry, sweetie, but you fall into that "too young" category. It may not be true, but this pic makes you look totally like a college student. Been there, done that. If I'm gonna regress, I'm goin' for the high school boys, where I can *really* make a difference! :-)

  3. don't know
  4. don't know; he appears to be in an advertisement
  5. don't know, but he looks too familiar; I nominate him for the most familiar face that I've never seen :^)
  6. u-u-uh...a little to obvious; I nominate this for the photo with the least number of items that aren't dead give aways
  7. does anybody think that this is Shadowspark or CyranoVR?
  8. can't even guess

Re:My Guesses (1)

eugene ts wong (231154) | more than 10 years ago | (#7111889)

Oops. I clicked submit too early.

9 can't guess
10 can't guess
11 can't guess, but I probably won't be surprised once we find out who he is
12 can't guess, but he looks like he's fun to hang out with
13 Esc? I don't remember seeing that name in The Circle, though
14 Turg? This guy looks like he's from a tv show in Ontario, & Turg said that he is from Ontario
15 baldass_newbie? This guy looks like he fits the profile perfectly in so many ways.
16 This guy reminds me of Technolust. I could be wrong, but I doubt that I have met this guy online.
17 The canyon should be a dead give away, assuming that somebody actually mentioned something in his journal, but I can't even guess
18 nice eys; hair is lighter than I imagined
19 MCHamster? I nominate this guy for the cleanest cut award. I bet that was a wedding photo. Would you be willing to tell us anonymously if it was a wedding photo?
20 I won't guess, because he looks familiar.
21 I don't know, but I won't guess. Even though I don't know, it looks too obvious.
22
23 I don't know who this is, but I don't think it's who we think it is.
24 I haven't got a clue.
25 I'm not guessing any girls because it seems to obvious. #25, you look very cute.
26 I haven't got a clue.
27
28 can't guess
29 don't know, but he looks pretty cool
30 Com2Kid?
31 I can't guess.
32 I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if we were on each other's friends lists.
33 I don't know. spoonyfork?
34 Okay, I don't know who this is, but this is what I imagined baldass_newbie to look like. I thought he would have this guy's face & glasses, but have the other fellow's hair, & shirt. Eh, whatever. I'm willing to bet this guy shows up in Brent's journal very often. I couldn't guess. ceejayoz?
35 I don't know. If this guy had a lighter colored shirt with a color, & a gun, then I'd know who I'd guess. I honestly don't know, because I don't think that I know enough people to even begin guess. I always assumed that most people have cleaner cut hair styles.
36 I don't know, but I bet that the whole picture is probably 1 glaring clue.
37 If that's his wife, then he has a very cute woman. Tell us anonymously,was she a cheer leader?
38 I don't know, but he looks too familiar.
39 I can't even begin to guess. I think that it's hard to guess for people older than me, because I keep thinking that everybody on /. is younger than me. I'm not trying arrogant. That's the unfortunate truth. :^)
40 I don't know.
41 SafetyCap?
42
43 I don't know, but I probably comment back & forth with this guy. He's probably on my fans list. I haven't bothered to do much friending lately, though.
44 I'm willing to bet that this is Arb. I could be wrong, but I'm sure if we looked real carefully, then there might be some clues in the picture. Maybe it's SQLKitten?
45 Quick! Somebody zoom in on the name tag. Do a CSI on him!

My preliminary votes (1)

Ethelred Unraed (32954) | more than 10 years ago | (#7111854)

Well, I'll admit, in nearly all cases I haven't the foggiest who the people are (with one exception), but here are my votes anyway:

  • Cutest girl: 06 (the one on the right :-) )
  • Hottest babe: 25 -- though a little blurry to be sure -- uh, is that Minneapolis?
  • Guy most likely to be in a boy band: 30
  • Guy most likely to be a UNIX sysadmin or CompSci prof, yet be a lot of fun on Friday nights, and least likely to own a digital camera: 31
  • Guy who looks most like my neighbor and highest on the hunk scale: 32
  • Guy most likely to have Sicilian ancestry and get all the girls south of the Humber: 39
  • Guy least likely to be in the military: 41
  • Guy most likely to have discovered a method of bringing Latina Barbie to life and thus most likely to be the envy of males everywhere: 43
  • Guy most likely to have been adbucted by aliens: 44 (and who clearly has been replaced by #4 as body double)
  • Guy who looks like he could be me when I'm 45: 05
  • Guy with most unique fashion sense: 45
  • Guy most likely to be a Lance Corporal: 46

Cheers,

Ethelred

Yep, not in the military. I was at the A-bomb memorial in nevada and though it would be a funny in a Dr Strangelove sort of way.

Nope the photo was taken in Seattle. I happen to know exactly where that photo was taken. If there was more of the skyline in the photo I could probably also tell you the year it was taken.

The person in the photo doesn't live in Seattle to the best of my knowledge.

hehehe... well, i am sure it's not hard to guess where it was taken if you've been to west seattle. that park offered a great view.

oh yeah, it was taken on may 25, 2003.

The person in the photo doesn't live in Seattle to the best of my knowledge.

i get the impression you think you know who it is...

31a submitted the photos of 31b/c on behalf of that other person and did state so in the email.

I think I may have to... ummm... "test the digital camera still works" when I'm in work this afternoon, or even just use on of the webcams (forgot they worked).

I'd been trying to find a good photo of me, but I seem to have been a little *too* successful in avoiding pictures being taken of me :P

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 10 years ago | (#7112604)

uh, haven't looked at the pics yet, will do when I get a chance.

I suck, didn't enter a pic....but if you guys really need to see what I look like, I'll throw some wedding pics up after the wedding.

9 days.

Fun fun fun.

Re:no space? (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 10 years ago | (#7113239)

Still accepting pics, em, and I'll hold off a couple so you won't be added dead last or anything (though the wedding motif may be a dead giveaway).

Re:no space? (1)

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 10 years ago | (#7113533)

I'm not wearing a tux. I'll be the guy in a wetsuit.

In the middle of Georgia. Holding a cat. By it's tail. With tape on it's paws.

Drat, I just gave it away.

Seriously though, it's gonna be a couple 3 weeks or so before I get the pictures on line. I'll probably just post them myself. To maybe Xer's site again or something.

Anyone else just see that teradactyl?

Hottest Guy contest (1)

Some Woman (250267) | more than 10 years ago | (#7113833)

I know bethanie started this already, but she's old. ;)

In the running are...

#41-That is the most beautiful sky I've ever seen. Pants up or down? Pick one and stick with it. Nice forearms.

#32- a little light and your SW Index might rise by a few points.

#33- Fairly nice nose. Too bad the angle doesn't hint as to what your eyes look like.

#30- Is that room really that yellow? Lovely caramel-colored eyes.

#27- I'm a sucker for really short hair. I know somebody who looks just like you.

#21- Great action shot. Looks like a nice face.

#23- That's the sexiest outfit I've ever seen.

#17- Smile, then we'll talk

#16- Slighted by bethanie? Don't worry, there's room for you over here.

#13- Nice red wall. Good eyes- photo doesn't do them justice.

And the winner is...

#6!! Don't let the wig and delicate bone structure fool you. She's a man, baby!
(Yes, this is my sneaky way of not having to choose.)

Re:Hottest Guy contest (1)

Saige (53303) | more than 10 years ago | (#7114579)

I have to go #16... like bethanie, I love that hair. Plenty of good-looking folks all around here. Oh, and #34, I LOVE the framing job on the picture. Nice touch. :)

Re:Hottest Guy contest (1)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#7114804)

Old? OLD? If you think *I'm* old, you should see Hubby!!!

No, really, you're right. I'm old.

And I think your list is the one the guys'd rather make, babe. :-)

As for #6, I think you *may* be onto something!

Maybe you insist on sending in bad pictures of yourself. Trust me, anybody can look good in a picture- keep trying.

Besides, I'm sure you have a good personality. :)

I agree. I think that it has everything to do with lighting, good hair, & good clothes. I speculate that it just takes time to figure it out.

Fencing (1)

dead sun (104217) | more than 10 years ago | (#7114734)

I wanna know who has the epee in #23 and, if you attend a university, which one and are you a member of the fencing team there? I'll be at Northwestern on the weekend of the 11th and 12th, attending a fencing tournament myself. Of course, I'll be fencing foil, but I've fenced epee in tournaments before too.

Re:Fencing (1)

This will be thread for anybody who has any discussion for #7.

I just want to make the disclaimer that my hair is slightly longer all over. I was pretty sleep deprived that day of the photo. In fact, I usually am, & that's why I usually have bags under my eyes.

Celebrity Look-Alikes (1)

SamTheButcher (574069) | more than 10 years ago | (#7116619)

1) Dave Mustaine from Megadeth. Somehow, I think #1 will take that as a compliment. :)
2) Hector Elizondo. With hair.
3) Tommy Lee Jones in Men In Black. Dunno.
4) Some geek columnist like Cringely or something. Total "byline" picture. (I know, that's not a celebrity, but it's too generic of a pic!)
5) Hm. Hair's too dark to be a Kenny Rogers look-alike. But that's all I got.
6) Nancy Cartwright & Shirley Temple. ;)
7) Dude....Sulu. Totally Sulu. :) More for the dark complexion and dark hair than the eyes. Really! But the eyes help. ;)
8) Sorta looks like that guy on Days of Our Lives who was on one of the MTV Real World seasons - Chicago, I think.
9) David Cross with a beard?
10) For some reason, I wanna say Super Dave Osborne, but I'm leaving someone out that's really obvious. That smile's reminding me of someone....
11) Kinda reminds me of boo-boo. You know, Yogi's friend? Don't know why. Or some other cartoon character.
12) David Blaine, in that second pic. Maybe David Blaine is in the photo contest from his box in England!
13) A not-ugly Steve Buscemi. I tried to think of a way to say it kindly! I mean, this guy's HOTT, but Buscemi is hot in a pencil-neck geek way. This guy's got plenty of geek, but no pencil neck.
14) Sorta Tom Cruise-ish, in the eyes, when he smiles. But also one of the geek kids from Sixteen Candles. He'd be in that movie for sure. Yeah! Young John Cusack!
15) Crocodile Hunter guy. Ish.
16) Bam Margera. Again, this guy might think that's a compliment. :)
17) Almost Nicolas Cage. Ish.
18) Catherine Zeta Jones Douglas with blonde hair.
19) Ooo! The guy from "Father of the Bride"! No, not Spencer Tracy, the new one! No, not Steve Martin, the husband-to-be! The "Independent Communications Consultant!" George Newbern! (I know, a collective "Who?!" goes up from the crowd, but you'd know him if you saw him.)
20) Ewan MacGregor. And I'm stickin' to it.
21) Dunno. Some Bond villain with a long face. Almost like Chris Walken, but not quite. (Yeah, I said "Chris". We're like that.)
22) French Toast Man! No, no, there's no such celebrity. Don't know who has 'chops like that. I'd almost say Jack Black with glasses and a little less up top. Oh! I know - that tall guy that looks like a tall David Cross. I don't know his name, bu he was on the News Radio where they were the Quartet - Crap. Can't find his name.
23) Jason Voorhees. But, like, backwards.
24) Ed O'Neill
25) She actually reminds me of my friend Lori, but she's not a celeb. She reminds me of the main character girl from Freaks & Geeks with glasses. That's a compliment. ;)
26) Steve Austin with red hair (the wrestler, not the six million dollar man)
27) One of those guys in like, a punk or metal band. Almost like the lead singer for Staind, but I hate that guy, and this guy's not that chubby.
28) Seriously, you guys gotta give me more to work with. I'd say Joe Rogan if that guy wasn't such a bitter, plastic-surgery-gettin' loser. Somebody scruffy.
29) Cross between Buscemi and Walken.
30) Reminds me of the guitarist for Sum 41. Ish.
31) heliocentric. No, just kidding. He's not that famous.
32) Biff from Back to the Future.
33) Seinfeld, almost. There's somebody who he looks almost exactly like, but I'm blanking.
34) Wormser from Revenge of the Nerds. But older. ;)
35) That guy from Real World London. Or Tony Hawk, sorta.
36) That guy from that Life magazine picture who's in the centrifuge and his lips end up flapping outside his head. You know what I'm talking about.
37) Gus. I dunno, somebody named Gus. :)
38) Dude, this is difficult. I wanna say Ed from the Barenaked Ladies.
39) Ooo! The dad from Alf. He was also in that Norm Macdonald sitcom, too.
40) That one guy from SNL...Chris Parnell! Yep, that's him.
41) Tim Roth? Ish?
42) One of those guys from "Beat the Geeks". One of the Geeks. Not that he looks like on of them, but he looks like he'd fit right in. :)
43) Sorta Jimmy Smits. Ish. Ness. For lack of another option. Or that guitarist from Faith No More.
44) John Denver.
45) The lead singer for Smashmouth, but thinner.
46) Richie Cunningham. As a skin. ;)
47) Wait...I know I just saw this guy...I think it was on the news, though....

**DISCLAIMER**
Some of these I know who they are, but just kinda went with it. Some were first impressions. None were intended maliciously. Lighten up!

Sulu [ridgecrest.ca.us]

Regarding #33, you're probably thinking of that guest star on Star Trek the Next Generation, where he was a hologram that would continualy send out super powerful weapons until they buy something. The weapons would get more & more powerful. He was in the first season. No matter, though. #33 doesn't look like a guy that I'd want to mess with.
