Und now... ze Billy Bingo!!!! *wild applause*
As requested, here's the (old) Billy Bingo I made a while ago - *G*.

But, first, you have to read this - wasps trained to replace dogs for sniffing odors: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051203/ap_on_sc/bomb_sniffing_wasps

Finabair, what do you think? Cheaper than an MS "sniffer", takes only 5 minutes to train ("calbrate"), but lasts only 48 hours. This... is strange.

Okay - back to Billy! (behind a cut... bigger than I remembered!)

This (and Dom's) is so cute! Let's play next time we moot! Though I vote for laminating the boards so we don't spoil the piccies.

*heeheehee!* But I don't know how we'd do it... this was intended as a "the next time you see a photoshoot, look for these!" - *G*.

I'm tempted to do a Billy followup - all with his different expressions. He has the most amazingly expressive face I've ever seen.

{speculative look}

You do realize that working out an in-person version would probably involve looking at lots of pictures? {Smile}

Heh. I think they're gonna run into problems with people being terrified of the detectors. Plus false positives on anything ELSE the wasps scent on the person. A diabetic with ketoacidosis, for instance, could theoretically smell REAL good to the wasps.

Then there is the question of where the wasps will be used and where they are native to. Moving organisms place to place has some inherent risk involved...

Other than that stuff, though, nifty idea!

Isn't it? It originally started as "Billy's BAD shirts", and expanded to "what does Billy wear?". So it also includes "Billy's jackets that really should have been given away by now". *G*

Ahhhhh! Love the Billy gallery :) Gotta love a man who doesn't worry about wearing the same clothes more than once when he knows he's gonna be photographed! ;) That was most excellent, I was needing a good dose of Billy, thank you :)

HEHEHE I don't know the "ugly" shirt is starting to grow on me :D I've noticed we've not seen the tan leather jacket in a long while, I wonder if it finally died. There was a person who posted a couple of times at the old BB.net forum who had turned up wondering if Billy was the lad her brother had known at school (she had known him a bit but not well as he was older than her). A couple of the things she said she remembered about him was that he was always nice to her and had a worn tan leather jacket that he always wore. I think it had to be that jacket as it was worn, stained and had a couple of buttons missing.

He's deffinitely not letting it all go to his head ;)

That is so sweet.

And I do have a soft spot for the leather jacket, because I saw it so much when he did the Canada tour; it's a lovely color. *G*
