Rapidly Dying 47-Year-Old Professor Gives Exuberant ‘Last Lecture’

"If I don't seem as depressed or morose as I should be, sorry to disappoint you."

An astonishing man.

Is this a movie star?

So I was at this dinner at The Four Seasons last night. My wife's boss was being sworn in as a member of the Board of the Beverly Hills Bar Association or some such thing. The whole thing was lovely and I enjoyed it immensely.

There was one strange moment however. For the second time in as many weeks, I had someone come up to me and ask me if I was an actor. The conversation went something like this:

Woman: Aren't you an actor?

Me: Well... I used to be.

Woman: Why did you give it up?

Me: Well, you can only do porn for so long.

(Woman turns red and walks away)

So the question to my readers is: do I look like a (semi)famous actor and if so which one?

Note: I have NEVER done porn (so far anyway).

The World's Weirdest/Stupidest Conspiracy Theories

My personal favorite:

The early Middle Ages (614-911 A.D.) never occurred. Everything that supposedly happened during those years was either a misunderstanding, an event from a different era, or an outright lie - Charlemagne, for instance, is a fictional figure. And we are actually living in the 1700s. (Herbert Illig's phantom time hypothesis)
