It's definitely a face, but it doesn't look like Einstein.

Let's all pretend it's an image of Mohammed and watch as the fundie Muslims try to figure out if they should tear down the whole mountain or not.

My favorite ____lia of all. Every time I go to the dentist I notice the little face on the lamp's metal brace staring right back at me. He looks like he feels sorry for me.

I can see the face, but the top is kind of pointy. I think a Yeti resemblance would be more fitting since it's a mountain.

The truth is that no one, but no one, knows what Jesus actually looked like. Maybe he looked like Einstien, they were both Jewish.

No, but it's amusing, and considering news is slow enough we have a "weird things found in the fridge" story...

I suffer from the audio version of it. And by that I mean that I experience notable perception of semi-coherent sounds, such as speech and music, that my brain interprets from otherwise random audio sources, such as blowing air and running water. I know this is actually pretty common, but in my case it's enough to be distracting, and though I know intellectually that it's illusory, I find it very difficult to convince my lower brain to ignore it. I've wanted to be a study subject for some time, mostly because I'd like to learn more about it, but as near as I can tell, the only people actively investigating it are people interested in the paranormal and other pseudoscience.

'Suffer' is perhaps too strong a word, but I'm not sure what's most appropriate. I could say I 'experience' it, but I suspect most people do, just to a lesser degree. It can be very distracting for me. Which isn't exactly "affecting my life," in the same way as chronic pain, say, but I do have one serious concern about it. Because it takes so much conscious effort to ignore it, I worry that if I ever develop dementia, I'll lose that capacity, and no longer be able to distinguish it from reality. I'll be quite convinced that BBC World Service is coming out of the air conditioner, and get angry at anyone who insists I'm imagining it. I hope someone at that point will be smart enough to put an end to me, since I imagine I won't be very useful to myself or anyone else.

If you squint real hard, it looks like a sundae.

We can't know for sure, but we can make some reasonable guesses.

At the very least, we can be pretty confident of what he *didn't* look like -- pretty much all popular depictions west of Rome.

Of course not. Jesus was born in Israel and would have been tan-t-dark skin.... the Catholics wanted a 'white Jesus'

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: I was unaware that Einstein had any 'followers'


Physicists always have "followers". Einstein was a love machine who could satisfy an entire herd of bespectacled, white coated lab assistantesses at the speed of light squared. Newton had so many three-ways with hot cookies (back in the day when the female pudenda was know colloquially as a "fig") they named a fig cookie sandwich after him.

Not that they were all easy, these - they didn't just flash their bosons at anybody with a grant and a lab. The Heisenberg groupies, for example, were known to be quite coy about their desires. You couldn't tell if they wanted it or not until after the box was opened.

If you look to the right of his nose you can see an alien with a tear dropped shaped head. I have it on good authority from the History Channel that aliens made this Einstein head and signed their work.

Both of these. Seriously, though, I personally don't even see the shape of a face, much less specifically Einstein's... Maybe if someone outlined it in MS paint for me...? 'Cause right now I'd say either my fusiform gyrus is broken or this article is just trolling us.

That's what we're supposed to see. I agree it looks nothing like Einstein, but I suppose if you squint, it's kind of got the proportions of a face.
