The head lab instructor in the EE labs at University was know to be a little "off". Having worked with him a bit, I think people were being very generous.
I've heard since that he was a relatively normal person, doing a masters degree in Electrical Engineering. One spring his thesis project (a large box of punch cards) was destroyed when his mother's basement was flooded.
He's still single, living with his mother -- 20 years after I left university.
I was getting a little spooked out about all the Google image requests coming for that one specific photo, so I decided to fiddle things a bit.
The photo of my son sleeping still shows up in an initial google search, but now when you click on it, you get a monkey photo.
I'm sure it has confused a few people! Hopefully the renamed to non-descript terms original photo doesn't get into Googles index the same way!
