Famous for My Face?

We all hope to be known for something someday. In today's world being known for something means coming up in Google search results. One day I would like to be known for my research and/or my teaching, but today it turns out I am known primarily for my face. Don't believe it?
That's right. The most famous thing about me is my face. In fact, the #1 image result for "Nicholas Nelson" is this image.So if I leave no other imprint on this planet, at least the world seems to like my face.


  1. Hey, it's a good face. (Then again, I may not be the best judge of these things.)

  2. (hint: Imagine reading this comment with a Strongbad voice) That's good Nick. Whenever I google myself all I get is a bunch of pages about "tbonetanner", stories about how I died in a motocross accident, my one appearance on American Idol, and a few pictures of me drinking beer and/or surrounded by a bunch of babes I don't know. Hey at least your face is famous, about all my claim to fame is that I died! and that I'm a graduate student in philosophy at some place in Canada. I better get back to my music...I have another youtube video to record.

  3. Quantumleap42, that is funny. It's been a while since I've seen something Strongbad and reading your comment in his voice filled a void.
