Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The real surprise was the physical world - looks, age, gender have all been unexpected for various persons.

I have found that to be universally true.  My work often involves telephone and/or email conversations with counterparts at other utilities whom I've never met in person.   And one of my long time hobbies is amateur radio, which again involves long distance communication with relative strangers.  In both cases, the occasional real time meetup invariably involves recalibrating a mental image that is different, sometimes wildly so, from the reality.

We all bleed the same color.
