Nude Again


While I'm not inclined to boast, I don't mind saying that I was actually amongst the first to sit nude at a computer, as this image will attest. It's one thing to be nude at the computer, but perhaps another to actually have a photo of oneself blindingly-nude at the computer posted on a blog and very likely being viewed by countless other hard-working Americans nude at their computers.

I am not advocating nudity at the computer, nor do my opinions represent the internet in any way. The photo is for scientific inquiry only and in hopes that the truth will be represented without taint.

I was sittin' nude in front of a Univac in 1953, and I know a couple of people who regularly sat nude in front of the Eniac even earlier. Oooh, the memories of the warm glow of the tubes!...yeah we worked with it in the nude as well. Back in those days the computer made a lot of heat, so it was a natural way to cool off...

Please withdraw your claim to having been among the first to do so.

OK, I withdraw my claim.

To Whom It May Concern,

I hate to break this news to you lovers of the nude body image....but this picture is obviously a trick of Photoshop. There are several anomalies if you look closer. For instance, look how the angular cuts of this guy's shadow are near his neck. The darkness behind his head also looks like part of the original shirt this man was wearing. The whole picture is also "Pixelated" as another form of distortion to obscure the true identity of who this man really is. Perhaps this was innocently done to protect the shy nature of this person (merely conjecture). And what's with the weird white reflection near the computer screen (a UFO perhaps?). Or how did the little "Ghost Man" image sitting on his right wrist just magically appear? As to what this man is watching on his computer screen, I choose not to even go there. Now, the obvious question comes to mind....why all this hoopla to somehow prove that this man is even a "nude man." Along with being a "nude man" who claims he's one of the first nudes to ever exist is beyond me. The best we can do at this point is to just write this off as another "Urban Legend." I'm sorry to have to share this information with any "Sidewalk Gawkers" out there who may have thought that this picture was of some sort of historic significance.

I'm not nude at the moment, but my computer is....

Hey don't you have an apartment building somewhere? Oh wait, that's something else........

I'm learning the value of "hoopla" from this one.

Yes I was nude (only in this one instance). Yes, of course I photoshopped the hell out of it and we're all better off for my having done so.

Moral: put the word "nude" in your caption and you can convert the world and help build a more wholesome tomorrow.
