Reading your mind

Posted by Picasa
Mystery to me. Saw this man at lunch time at a crowded corner on George Street. While everyone else was crossing the street he just stood there, hands on the traffic lights post and purposefully showing us his back. What's this? Someone is reading my mind? Yahoo ID / Password: headtest55. Should I try and log onto the internet and find out more? I didn't. This is too weird! Have you ever seen a message such as this where you live? Would you have the curiosity to try and find out more? I wonder how many people did?

Mystère : j'ai trouvé cet homme au coin de George Street à l'heure du déjeuner. Alors que la foule traversait, lui restait immobile au carrefour, les mains posées sur le poteau du feu tricolore et nous montrant volontairement son dos : "Quelqu'un lit dans votre esprit. ID Yahoo et code d'accès : headtest55. " Oh, voilà qui m'intrigue : Devrais-je aller sur internet pour en savoir plus ? Je ne l'ai pas fait, c'est trop bizarre. Avez-vous déjà vu des messages de ce genre là où vous vivez ? Auriez-vous la curiosité d'aller voir de quoi il s'agit ? Je me demande combien de gens l'ont fait...

marrrant si tu cherches sur internet, tu ne trouves pas grand chose a part deux photos, dont l'une du meme personnage que tu as prise en photo

Mais je n'ai pas trouve d'explication, j'espere que quelqu'un de DP aura une explication, cela m'intrigue...

Je te souhaite un bon Weekend

Une nouvelle méthode de spam?

Nope, I wouldn't try to find out. So, did he ask for money or just stand there?

I have never seen anything like that in my city. And I'd never try to look it up. Who knows what kind of virus that mail address could have.

Sadly,nutters aren't as colourful as was once the case. Gone are groups such as the British Israelites with illustrated "proof" that Britain was peopled by the Lost Tribe of Israel, or the night time scribes surreptitiously writing "Eternity" on Sydney footpaths, one using white chalk, the other yellow.

Television can't match the quality nutters we once seemed to produce without even trying.

There's an old adage that rules my life: Curiosity killed the cat But satisfaction brought it back. I would have talked to him (I talk to everyone and hear some incredible information!)

Audrey said...

I tried to enter his ID/Password on Yahoo page. But it's not a valid ID.
Weird why he does such thing.

Anyway, thanks Nathalie to show us and share with us a piece of Sydney everyday.

A little weird and a little scary. I don't think I would have been as brave as kate and talked to him.
I would be afraid of a virus on my computer if I logged on.

Pod said...

i've seen him too..intriguing. hope he can't read my mind....

Nathalie said...

So we do have a dary spirit who tried to log on to Yahoo: Audrey. But it took her nowhere.. I'm afraid we'll never know what this is about?!?

Et si on disait que tu es passée juste au moment où le poids du message qu'il portait lui a pesé ? Alors il s'est posé, appuyé au poteau, avant de repartir avec toujours arboré ce message dans le dos

Keropok Man said...

is he all right "up there"? :-p

Pod said...

i dare you to ask him.....
;0p

Kala said...

I have to tell you something funny - I googled headtest55 and your webpage was the first hit! I think I would not bother asking since he may be go psycho or something - interesting shot though =)

Nathalie said...

I had a suspicion he was paid to do this, like a sandwich man... but then if there is no big business behind it, I don't get it!
