Picture Of You As A Little Kid

Sun Dec 09, 2007 8:32 pm

People are always posting self pic threads and the like so I figured I'd start a thread about posting a pic of you as a little kid. Lets see what you a.nutters looked like when you were children.

This photo of me was taken when I was three in March of 1979, in Springfield, Missouri. That is my dad's 1979 Chevrolet Impala in the background. I really liked playing with toy cars as a child and wow, I work with cars everyday in my career.

Here is a new pic of me too. It was taken two weeks ago with my cat Frisco at my house in Taylor, Michigan.

I found this picture last year. It is of me at the Smithsonian back in about 1983 when I was 3 years old.

Here's the kicker though....

The irony in the picture is that I am now a Falcon 20 Captain now some 24 years later and some of them are ex-FedEx airplanes. I think it's the craziest thing and I didn't find the pic until a couple years after I started flying the FA20 as an FO. Does anyone else think that's cool other than me? It does kinda suck that I fly airplanes that are old enough to have been in a museum as long as I have been alive though!

Thanks for asking; good question!

Treacher Collins syndrome (mandibulofacial dysostosis) is a rare genetic disorder of craniofacial development. The skeletal structures of the face, including both jaws, cheekbones, eyesockets, do not form correctly (in fact they are underdeveloped). The ears also do not form, in severe cases. In my case, I have no outer ears, ear canals, or middle ears. I use an implantable bone conduction hearing aid, so sound can get through my thick skull. I also have a cleft palate (which affects my speech).

TCS is caused by mutations in TCOF1 (5q32-33.1), which somehow causes many of the embryonic neural crest cells to die before they can migrate to the developing face. TCOF1 encodes a protein called treacle, which is needed to allow these cells to grow and proliferate. Somehow, TCOF1 mutations are linked to mass death of these cells.

That's why I went to St Louis all the time as a child (hence the long road trips with Dad in the Chrysler station wagon).

Now I'm at the Univ. of California-San Francisco, working toward my PhD in craniofacial development, so my research could someday contribute to knowing more about these rare disorders and possibly how to help kids with them.

In fact, in one of my classes, I had to write a hypothetical research-grant proposal (to get practice in doing that). My proposal is to try to find the link between the mutations in TCOF1 and the mass death of neural crest cells in the embryo (leading to the characteristic deformities). My hypothesis is that the mutations in TCOF1 (which produces insufficient treacle protein) trigger an intrinsic "stress response" in the cells, causing them to commit suicide.

My guess would be mid 1980s. I remember when every toy store had those Federal Express DC-10s for sale. They were around until about 1990-1991. I first saw those around 1983. Given the style of the sweater, I'd say between 1984-1986.
