"Game of Thrones" Star Peter Dinklage - in 1910!!!?????

Ok ok, just bear with me for a few minutes.

"Game of Thrones" Star Peter Dinklage - in 1910!!!?????
So I was out fishing for bluefish on Monday (caught two!) and as we were looking for signs of blues, a gargantuan Ocean Sunfish rose right near the boat and it's huge dorsal fin came out of the water. I thought it was a great white shark and about peed my pants!!!

WTF is an ocean sunfish? Well this crazy looking thing:
Anyways, it was pretty cool.

Now you know me, when I got home later I went right to Wikipedia and read about them. Very interesting creature to be sure.

But it was during my research that I stumbled upon an amazing discovery!

Did you know that "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) was alive in 1910? Oh, you didn't know? Well, neither did I!!!

Here are a few shots of Peter:

So, what does this have to do with ocean sunfish on Wikipedia you ask? Good question.

On Wiki, there was a picture uploaded with this description:
An enormous ocean sunfish (Mola mola), caught by W.N. McMillan of E. Africa, at Santa Catalina Isl., Cal. April 1st, 1910. Its weight was estimated at 3,500 pounds.
Here is the photo (click to enlarge):
 Note the bottom right of the photo, do you see him?

A bit closer and circled (again, click to enlarge):

Ok, I was having some fun, but the man in the picture sure does look like Peter! Doppelganger from 1910 perhaps!

Have a good night!

Whoa -- sonuvagun! He really DOES resemble Dinklage! Proof that Immortals do exist! :) This reminds me a lot of the old photo someone found from the civil war era of a guy who looked just like Nicholas Cage. Have you ever seen that one? Google it, it's equally creepy. They walk among us!

Btw, cool encounter with that huge fish! Now come on, one of you had to have said: "We're gonna need a bigger boat!"
