It's funny, I can't put the voice in the video Chris made for me with his face. Funny how you associate faces with voices and they almost never match.

I was going with youth. I suppose the older guy could be an avid diver but went with the odds.

I have to admit that the resolution of this mystery robs me of the tingling sense of unknowing. ;)

Aye, I'll second all the comments!
It couldn't have been the "Old Guy" anyway - he's not wearing a CW! :-)

One thing that puzzles me is: the man with the tie is supposed to be younger than my wife (who is in turn younger than me).

Hmm. I guess I'm just lucky. :D

In Board Preferences / Edit posting defaults, the setting "Enable BBCode by default" is set to Yes. Is that the setting you are referring to? If not, can you tell me where it is?

So you are no longer a watch idiot savant...or you wet your pants?

Do you know what a spit take is? The first time I ever saw that setup, I read the description. If you are a reasonable human being, I believe you would be wondering "come on, what can be creepy about a dog 'staring' at you?" That is definitely what I was thinking when I clicked on the link. I was taking a drink as the image rendered. I literally spit my drink onto my monitor as the image rendered.
