What you don't realize is that the BA always keeps at least one "decoy" around just in case a PXer or someone from GLP is on the loose... 8-[

With that in mind, there's nothing extraordinary about the photo at all.

01101001, I appreciate the sentiment, but that's a 25k image that counts against my bandwidth every time someone loads this page, so I changed it to a link. Please see Rule #12 in the FAQ.

Wasn't that a Star Trek or Outer Limits episode or something? You know, where the star of the show meets himself?

Star trek: The Next Generation. JL Picard meets himself due to the effects of warp speed travelling or something like that. (I'm not a trekkie, but I saw the episode years ago; I tell this by heart) His upper suit had about the same colour as Phil's in fact :D

Hercules the Legendary Journeys possibly, in one episode Kevin Sorbo stars as himself (not that I watch it).

Looks like a cloning experiment gone badly wrong!

(You're never alone with a clone :D )

The BA Blog has a funny story about the twins (http://www.badastronomy.com/bablog/2006/02/02/tam-4-report-4) at The Amazing Meeting 4.
