    I always thought the mk2 looks like a retarded frog at some angles.

    My mom calls it a ugly frog every time she sees it as well. "I dont want your ugly frog leaking oil in the garage"

    Thanks. I've always suspected I have some level of aphantasia because I don't recognize faces often until I hear the voice that goes with it or add some other contextual clue like what kind of car they drive. I recently took one of those cavern tours where you get to bottom of the cavern and the tour guide turns off all the lights and tells people to wave their own hand in front of their face. Everybody else was saying they could see their hand waving. I couldn't, but the guide explained it was really a mind trick, the image center of the brain knowing what you are doing creates a ghost image of you doing it. I don't know if my brain was smart enough to know its too dark for such nonsense or if its just malfunctioning. I'd have been really bummed if everyone else said "Wow, its an amazing resemblance to Toucan."
