Side Bar - Me and Nelson Mandela Look alikes? I don't think so!

The first time it happened was after a twitpic was posted of me from a conference presentation and a former work colleague commented on email that it looked like Nelson Mandela. Then on Mandela's passing there were more comments, first my Daughter Erin, then my Aunty May on a skype call and most recently the waiter at the restaurant that we were having our Xmas eve dinner. At the dinner I was demonstrating to our party my new video camera sun glasses. I was showing them the zoom, wide angle and panning features when he made the comment, much to the amusement of everyone. you can see the results here. The video is terrible (no good in low light) but the audio is ok.

Really?...but I could think of worse people to be compared with :)
