USB Face

When I was a kid I used to always see images of faces in my surroundings. The closest term I have found to describe this phenomenon is pareidolia. It doesn't happen to me as much as it used to, but every once in a while I'll see one.

Tim has a nifty little set of photos on his photography page of everyday objects that appear to have faces.

Today I happened to glimpse the USB end of my iPod connector cable and saw a face looking at me.

So here it is. For some reason, I think the cable looks very pleased with itself -- maybe because it's proud of the bitchin' pitchfork t-shirt it's sporting.

I think that perhaps it is a look of surprise and horror. Clearly it has a clogged artery in it's chest.

I would like to be in your mind for a few hours, to look around, but I would like to make sure I had an anchor outside of your ear, just in case the depths of your quirkiness became even too deep for me.

Of course, I would blog about it.

I would not mess with that connector.

we clearly need to market a teeshirt with the cool bitchin USB pitchfork on it just to see who gets th' joke.

dr z, it just needs sweet, sweet music coursing through it to push out the blockage.

freida b, just be mindful of the earwax.

jon, you are wise not to.

cap'n ergo, your wish has been granted, and shirts and assorted other items are now available for purchase!

The symbol is a little on the smallish side, but it doesn't look too bad -- I actually think the baseball cap looks kinda neat.

That is sweet, like a little techno jack in the box or something.
