# Ok
Freebase began on the Gayshift.
StickFigureNinja found the original photo on Pbase and posted the link here.
A couple of people did reconstructions of the face; Haku's was adopted as the 'official' version.
Someone, Gronkpan I think, named him Freebase (because of Pbase).
This was around the time of Vimod too, which you'll forgive me for not going into right now because it's just going to complicate matters too much... but...
somehow the two identities got partially merged, and Vimod became Vimod 'The Mod' Freebase. So there are actually 2 Freebases.
The Freebase we're talking about here though is NOT a mod, and cannot ban you from using Adobe Photoshop CS4, so you can relax about that.
Also around this time some of the FUCK busker and other FUCK images by Cockweasle inspired a bunch of response images... then in time FUCK became a frequent response, then eventually became pretty much a standard response to Freebase images.
I hope that's cleared that up. Also I just want to say, in no way do I spend too much time here.

# and of course, there was the whole rumour that Gronkpan was in fact the person in the image.
Then, the subsequent rumour that Gronkpan was Vimod.

# Yeah, well I didn't want to get into that
and the whole thing about my sRGB monitor settings and the Adobe forums, because that's just going to get complicated.
Also, I didn't want to get modded by Gronkpan. Or Vimod, come to that.

# linky!
I had a link to it but it disappeared when I had to do a HDD format.

I remember some of the comments inviting Jeremy (or whatever freebase's real name is) to come over here and have a look at what he'd spawned. Did he ever do that?
