I've got a two-fer! First, the (relatively) easy one:

Diaphone Jim 01-17-2020 11:12 AM

Ditto on Elvis.

Clodfobble 01-17-2020 11:14 AM

Not Elvis. But the lips are key.

Gravdigr 01-17-2020 11:19 AM

And the hair. Or the relative lack thereof...

This was a good one.



ETA: If this was the easy one, I can't wait for the next...

Clodfobble 01-17-2020 11:23 AM

Honestly, the next one's so hard I'm afraid it might be kind of a downer--like, "Oh, well we never could have guessed that, so what's the point?" This one, at least, you hear the answer and say, "Oh YEAH, I can see it..."

I was considering this one, and a certain name kept popping into my head, but I wasn't convinced so didn't announce it. I finally had given up and did something I never do. I cheated. And damn if it wasn't the name that was popping into my head.

I still don't entirely see it. I must have seen a "when they were young" page once in the past and it registered in my memory. I bet I saw that photo before.

Burt Reynolds?

Clodfobble 01-18-2020 09:36 AM

Not Burt Reynolds. It's...


David Hasselhoff!

And now the stupidly hard one. Note how the hair is shellacked into straightness, and combed down in front to hide the already-balding spot...

glatt 01-18-2020 10:31 AM

This one, I've seen before, so I feel like it's cheating to answer. It's a good one though.

Never heard of or seen Momoa, but Hasselhoff also Aquaman.

OK, the brain is so weird. The first time I looked at the pic, I had no idea who it was. But the moment I read that you've seen it before, I realized who it was.

So I MUST have seen it before... because the idea of "seeing it before" triggered the name of the person. Right now I'm absolutely certain that I've seen it before. (But I still had to cheat to verify it 100%!)

The deep recesses of the mind... may those clouds stay where they are, and not advance into everyday life

Isn't it amazing that our brains remember such trivial details that we saw briefly years ago?

I guess faces are something that would be evolutionarily advantageous to remember though, so we must be hard wired to encode that information somewhere. I bet we can recognize thousands of faces. Maybe tens of thousands. Even if we have trouble placing them.

I cheated and I have never heard of him or the show he was on.
