Why does everybody have old soldiers in their Avatar?? Answered

Well, Kiteman has anyway.

So, what's going on? Why everybody being so random?

And why do they all look so oddly similar?

I'm guessing there's only one more possible one, that's an obvious homophone. Sadly I was having fun outdoors and being dressed as a pirate at the weekend so wasn't around to jump on this particular bandwagon.

Its come and gone.. It was fun for a short while. Being dressed as a pirate is an acceptable excuse for not being around.

There are two possibilties A: everyone on instructables is or knows an old soldier B: everyone on instructables is too lazy, and googled old soldier, and they all got different pics but don't all old people look alike? :)

I think it's because they enjoy moustaches. I know I do.

You know, I've never seen a picture of you unshaven. Does it ever happen?

I used to wear a good thick (red!) beard, until my eldest decided he was scared of it, 8 or 9 years ago. I often go stubbly at weekends, but shave it off as soon as it's long enough to see the white ones that have snuck in.

I have to make sure I don't have any kind of mustache, since it makes my C-pap leak at night.....making it counterproductive :-)

I'm also clean-shaven, but weilding a longbow. In World War II. That's right, you heard.

You're such a badass that you don't need the additional moustache points.

Too right. I'm the only recorded guy to kill someone with a longbow in the whole of WWII.
