    Default So I was curious about what Rich Burlew looks like.

    Some pics can be found here.

    Gotta say he is a pretty good looking guy. I don't know how recent these pics are? Any ideas as to when they were taken? Mr Burlew seems pretty elusive at least to my Google-fu. Only a handful of pics were easily obtained.

    What? That can't be Rich Burlew. What, just because he looks like the avatar Rich uses you think that's him? There are only so many ways to draw a stick figure, so of course they look alike.

    No, but seriously, good find. No onto what Rich Burlew sounds like.

    Well, I'll be -- he looks just like the stick figure versions of himself he's been drawing for years.

    Like I said, that's just a coincidence. There are only so many ways to draw a stick figure. That's just some other guy.

    Here is another one. There also used to be a picture of him at a convention hugging a women who looks and dresses a bit like the little seen stick figure depiction of his wife, but that's gone now.

    There's no pictures of him after 2006, so he might have changed massively in 5 years (phantom of the opera style mask). And if he has kids there are certainly no pictures of them.

    The giant likes his privacy; i wouldn't be surprised if there wasnt any photos of him from any time recent on the Internet. He might look the same, might look different, but aside from accidentally walking into him on the street somehow, there really is no way to know unless he gives/announces a public appearance.

    What, like half his face was disfigured by acid or something and now he makes all his decisions with a coin toss and causes crime while fighting a guy dressed as a bat?

    Deus Ex Machina - refers to the ending of Greek plays where an actor playing a Greek God is lowered onto the stage and solves all of the problems. It is not a problem solved by a Chekov's Gun, Skill, or Armory. It is not an @$$ pull or whatever solved the plot in all those twilight novels. it is not characters acting out of character, or a twist you don't like.

    There are in fact, many more pictures of Mr Burlew on the internet. The problem is that he took off all his clothes for them.

    More like maybe he got burned by acid so now he wears a mask. Or maybe he just finds masks to be terribly comfortable and thinks everyone will wear them in the future.

    What a creepy thread. I hope He sees this.
    Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is the most popular HP fanfic on the net, and, honestly, it kicks Rowling's stuff in the teeth. Read it if you ever liked any of the following: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Ender's Game, Sherlock Holmes, Science, Magic, Fantasy, Life, or Chocolate.
