Quite honestly, it is the same person! At the end of the sim, I think I'll reveal who the person actually is---he was sort of a NYC-based celeb back in the late 50s-mid-60s. Also, remember, this is Skip only a few years out of college, long before the divorces, Studio 54, and substance abuse.
Back in the 1950s pretty much everybody looked like an average Joe (hey, I know a ton of guys who look like Joe the Plumber).

But I will be changing his pic later on in the sim once we get into the 60s. In fact the picture plays a role in what happens in the uni!

Now that's some kind of mystery stuff---or the biggest load of BS a member ever dropped in a thread

And thanks for your comments and interest in this sim.
