I've decided to change this thread to the "Post Pictures of People Who Look More Like Freddie Mercury Than Amir Sharifi Does".

I'll start. http://tinyurl.com/367ydw4   

Over to you guys.

Hi there...

I mean no disrespect or anything but

my brother in law who's from Tunisia looks more like Freddie than your brother does, and when you're taking pictures, didn't you think it could be better to clear your room a bit, or at least close your cupboards?

and don't make me start about how TM is nothing at all like Queen...

cheers anyway!

no disrespect but you better post a pic of him before you say that, also my brother and freddie both being iranian makes him look a lot like him which i doubt your cousin does since he is not iranian. About TMs music its the best band out there, no band comes close besides queen.

How many generations/centuries did Fred's family live in India?

Here...clear as mud. ;)

Although the Parsis originally emigrated from Greater Iran over 10 centuries ago, they have lost social or familial ties to the peoples of that region, and do not share language or recent history with them. Over the centuries since the first Zoroastrians arrived in India, the Parsis have integrated themselves into Indian society while simultaneously maintaining or developing their own distinct customs and traditions (and thus ethnic identity). This in turn has given the Parsi community a rather peculiar standing: they are Indians in terms of national affiliation, language and history, but not typically Indian (constituting only 0.006% of the total population) in terms of consanguinity or cultural, behavioural and religious practices. Genealogical DNA tests to determine purity of lineage have brought mixed results. One study supports the Parsi contention (Nanavutty 1970, p. 13) that they have maintained their Persian roots by avoiding intermarriage with local populations. In that 2002 study of the Y-chromosome (patrilineal) DNA of the Parsis of Pakistan, it was determined that Parsis are genetically closer to Iranians than to their neighbours (Qamar et al. 2002, p. 1119). However, a 2004 study in which Parsi mitochondrial DNA (matrilineal) was compared with that of the Iranians and Gujaratis determined that Parsis are genetically closer to Gujaratis than to Iranians. Taking the 2002 study into account, the authors of the 2004 study suggested "a male-mediated migration of the ancestors of the present-day Parsi population, where they admixed with local females [...] leading ultimately to the loss of mtDNA of Iranian origin" (Quintana-Murci 2004, p. 840)

Freddie wore a Mexican sombrero a few times, and he is depicted wearing one in the MIH booklet.
Mexicans (a couple of centuries ago) wore sombreros... they had moustaches too!

Freddie must be part Mexican as well.

I'll take this to TreasureMoment proportions and say that I LOOK like Freddie because I am Mexican as well, eventhough my skin color doesn't match and I don't have a moustache.

I've decided to continue the theme of "Post Pictures of People Who Look More Like Freddie Mercury Than Amir Sharifi Does".  It's more interesting than the original topic.

http://tinyurl.com/294mlnh

Please continue in this vein so that I don't have to fight a one man war in keeping the thread on topic.

As always, the all-knowing Treasure Moment guys are right and the rest of the world is wrong.  We get it.
