Ok, you have 5 choices to choose who mymemory is:

1. The bold guy at the left.
2. The hairy guy on the top.
3. The guy with glasses.
4. The guy at the far right.
5. Or... the nice girl (far from been a virgin) in the middle.

i'll go with the guy on the top, just for kicks. is the girl marrying all of you? do they do that there? :p :o :D

I'm gonna go with the guy on the far right. Looks more like a VJ than the other people.

If he isn't you then I'm sorry. I'm sure you're a much better VJ than the other guy... ;)

EDIT: I wouldn't recommed posting pictures of yourself on the web. You might get Photoshopped... *opens applications folder* :D

4. guy on the far right. looks like the most likely to be unable to spell or write grammatically correct sentences. :D no offense or anything. actually it was tricky, because the guy in the middle, number 2, looks like he escaped from a mental institute, but then i thought even crazy people can spell... ;)

May 18, 2003, 08:33 AM
The last pic mymemory posted was one where he was seen from the back and he had no hair (shaved), so I'm going for the guy on the left.

Why are we doing this?

Thank you for the grammar comment:mad: I have to have some defect to be consider human:rolleyes:

melchior: the guy at the right... he is a car dealer, actually, he buy cars, dissapear them and get the money from the insurance company, he is not a VJ.

Some of you are right btw and I'm in the picture.

We are not marrying the girl, but she dated the car dealer and me a few years ago.:cool:

Well, it seems to be narrowed down to three choices, but I'll still pick "none of the above". I now guess that you are the boy (or the dog??) in this picture: http://www.star-thrower.com/mymemory.jpg. The web page (http://www.star-thrower.com/home.html) on which this image appears claims to be the resumé of artist Michael D. Main, but I'm judging by the name of the jpeg file and because the dog was barking in Spanish.

I think you're the bald guy on the left.

When you made some grammar errors and spelling errors, you misspelled "bald" for "bold", which, I think, is a subconscious attempt to boost your ego.

You've also publicly trashed two people in the picture, stating that the "nice girl is far from being a virgin" and that the guy on the right rips off insurance companies.

A "bold" move, in my opinion. Ergo, I choose #1.

Please continue to tell us dirt about the others in the picture that are NOT you...this is better than a daytime soap.:p

in summary: if i say "think 'stupid,'" i don't mean think using stupidity (that would be "think stupidly"), i mean to think of stupidity, or, when thinking of something, to apply the concept of stupidity to it. likewise, "think different" is not an admonition to "think about something in a different way" (though that's basically what you end up doing), but an admonition to think about something by applying the concept of "difference" to it. when designing the new bridge, use a "different" frame of mind. it works fine. just a little ellipsis, perhaps. bah. stupid tangent.

I thought is was "bold"... what "bold" means then?

About "trashing" people, that is a very common thing here, it is not actually and insult.

The nice thing of my country is that you can call some one "Hey! negro maricon, ven para acá" (Hey faget nigro come over here!). In the use that is way too much to get killed but down here it is a regular slang.

If you come to Venezuela the first thing people are gonna do is to give you a nick name.

"Chas" (the car dealer) it is one of my best friends, specially because he is a very experienced person, he just do not deal with drugs but everything realted with counterfeit (credit cards), insurances and all that stuff he had done it. Actally he got a turist visa for his girlfriend when the embassy was closed because of the riots:confused:

bold is fearless, courageous, generally considered a positive acjective to give someone.

bald is hairless--usually via age, but a skinhead (who shaves his head to lose the hair) is also bald. bah, why am i analyzing these terms?

I hardly would have thought anything about the girl from the way her hand is in between the bold guy's legs...

So, in the tradition of your country, hey dumbass Venezuelan with bad grammar! Which one are you?

MUWAhAHAHAHAHA! I'm just kidding (after I get done laughing at my own joke). I find it humorous that people from another country often speak better english than your average American-born high school student. Sad. I don't speak anything other than my mother tounge, so I don't have the balls to criticize a foreign citizen's second language grammar.

Are you sure you're not guy number seven?

Well...watch Madonna's "Girlie Show Down Under" (look for it at your video rental place), and even as a woman I think you'd have to say objectively that those female dancers are hot. BTW, if you like bald guys, the male dancers are also crewcutted and needless to say also hot (this is Madonna we're talking about, after all).

*sigh* ...there used to be a time not so long ago when I looked like the male Madonna's dancers - shaved head and just totally ripped (size 28 waist, size 40 chest). But I'll get there again, dammit! (see the "Dieting for the Summer" thread).

I believe that I saw that story on "60 Minutes." The cost was about $30,000 for a 10 carat diamond. Though it doesn't have the value of a real diamond, it's has a priceless sentimental value!

Thank you, we are all fine around here, the lady is happy up there, she is not in pain and my girlfriend's family are all ok.

Death doesn't have to be always a tragic or traumatic thing, if is an old person that is sick and all his/her family are fine all we have left are happy memories. As I saw once some where: "The only pain you should be afraid of is the love you hold".

BTW, I want to be cremated and I want to have my ashes spread in a rave party with William Orbit and my best friend DJ OddO ( a venezuelan DJ). I want my ashes be trowed from very high.

The second option is to be trowed on the sea where my dad's ashes are gonna be trowed (he want his ashes on the sea).

On the other hand, maybe I'll have them throw my whole body off a bridge in Madison County, Iowa and see how big a splash they can make.

Sounds very similar to what my dad wants and I have considered the same thing.

Just to aid you in your english language skilss it's not 'trowed' it should be 'thrown'. Trow has completely different meaning. It either means obsolete or trusted.

I want a cremation also. I don't even want my family & friends to go through the whole funeral process. There's something about people remembering me as this artificial looking person inside of a coffin that screams "WRONG!!!" in my head.

this is making me think of that scene in the importance of being earnest when rupert everett taps his cigar into that urn (that has fake ashes in it...); that really shocked me. i laughed quite heartily.

sorry, i can't take death too seriously right now.

Anyone remember the Monty Python reunion a couple years ago, where John Cleese brought Graham Chapman's ashes in an urn, and then Terry Gilliam accidentally kicked the urn over, spilling the ashes?

Then somebody pulled out a Dustbuster. It was a setup, of course. But a pretty funny joke. I'm sure Chapman would have appreciated it.

Weren't they suppose to tour? I was waiting for the tour to come around but I never heard anything beyond the initial announcement. I would have loved to seen all that. I knew they were suppose to be bringing Champman along in an urn.

Apparently the Kids in the Hall did a tour, but I didn't hear about it until I saw it on Comedy Central. IMO, Kids in the Hall is the only sketch comedy that has ever come close to Monty Python. No, not Mad TV, not SNL, none of those. Once again this is my opinion...

I think mymemory is just gonna leave us hanging. Maybe we should start finding pics from the web of who we think he is.

I think a funeral days after the death is a little new-fashioned.

I'd like an old fashioned Irish wake, replete with keening. Your freshly dead body's right there in the room. Everyone gets good and drunk and celebrates/grieves your passing. Then in the morning they put you in the dirt.

I like the Irish Wake fashion too. It sounds like a lot of fun and a good way to get the emotions out. I think I would prefer to have my body cremated before hand though and just placed in and earn in the middle of the room or something. I saw an Irish Wake table on television just a week ago for the first time. The Irish and Scottish really have great ideas for some things.

Just a little clarification...guys with hair are sexy too, not just bald ones ;)

And I want to be cremated when I die...for two reasons, one, like eye I don't want my family to have that image of me in a coffin to be the one they carry with them...and two, I can't stand the idea of being eaten by bugs. :eek: (ok, sorry, I know that probably topped the list of morbid things to say/think!)

At least this way you don't have to worry about bugs.

Of course if that doesn't work, there is the Ferengi method for dealing with the dead. :eek:

Creemation is definitely a great alternative. My father-in-law had his wife cremated. He has kept her at home. The ashes are in 2 urns. Both are sculptures, works of art, in bronze. They way he decided to keep her at home, didn't really save any money.

Who do you want to have the diamond, sillymacgirl>

My cousin was cremated when he died...he and his sister had lived in New Mexico for a good part of their lives, so she wanted to keep half of his ashes here (In Louisiana) and spread the other half there (T or C N.M.). I think it's fine for people to keep the ashes in an urn at home...I don't think it's ok for people to split the ashes in half. (Unless of course really unusual circumstances cause some of the ashes to end up elsewhere)

And as far as who I'd want to have the diamond, if I'm married, my husband or when I have kids, maybe them...I guess it would depend on my life at the time. Right now I'm not married and I don't have children, so it would be my mother or brother.
