Have you ever seen a pair a teenagers walking down the street or whatever, one tall one, one shorter guy, and think about E/D? This happens to me all the time while I'm driving around and see that, and think, "Hmmm, that could have easily been Eric and Dylan walking around in 1999." Weird huh. Cuckoo

My husband has a friend from Turkey who looks a lot like Eric.

I go to a game store sometimes and see quite a few guys that could pass for both E&D

not exactly, not unless they have almost the exact features such as tall dude having curly hair and a huge long nose or short dude has eric's eyes/long nose. and also, eric's looks is almost generic. As in, I've seen quite a number of guys who look like him so when I do see those similar features I think ahh, Eric. What I do think about sometimes is how Eric would look like in his thirties. The both of them really could've grown out of their awkward phase and be pleasant looking grown men.

Kevin Harris is a good looking guy. I imagine Eric would look quite similar

I kinda do this. It wasn't until I got back into columbine this year that I started noticing these kinda things.

For example, I see a lot of similarities between my boyfriend and his best friend to E&D. Especially what I've heard about from when they were in high school (I didn't know them then). My boyfriend is 5'8 and his friend is 6'1 or 6'2. Both were gangly in high school from pics I've seen. Their interests and taste in music are/were similar to E&D's. They were ornery and could be trouble maker's at times too and both had a twisted sense of humor.

My sister had a friend who was a dead ringer for Dylan, as he appeared in his senior pics. He was hilarious but I only met him a handful of times. This was back before columbine happened so I obviously didn't make the comparison until after the fact haha.

I also saw a guy who resembled 4/20 Dylan recently, in the neighborhood near where I work. He was fairly young, probably early 20s. Same hair, backwards hat, dark clothes and all. He was walking down the street talking on his phone and I literally did a double take.

Last weekend I was at an amusement park and saw two teens walking around that could have passed for Eric and Dylan.  It was funny because the tall one had long curly hair with a black cap on backwards and the shorter one had short hair with a black cap on backwards.  They were both in mostly black clothing as well. It was weird.

Sometimes I wonder in a spiritual sense whether Eric and Dylan reincarnate into people or things we realize for a second or have to take a double take on, just for memory's sake, and then they/it just disappears. Ever thought of that?
I'm sure this has happened to their family or friends.

I have an aunt who lost a child when he was 4. She sees him everywhere. Sometimes other kids look like him and others he "disappears". He died over 50 years ago now and she still sees him

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] aw, wow, that's really fascinating and bittersweet. What an encounter. But yeah, that's what I thought. It might happen to some of us.

Maybe you had a "vision" and didn't know it!

Where I live, everyone is short. It's like living in a town full of Erics.

Please don't be offended by my ignorance, but I thought Croatians were tall?

Aren't all Croats tall like the tennis players Cilic and Karlovic? I always thought that the average height there was much greater than most European countries and certainly the USA.

I saw an "Eric" at the hardware store today. He was definitely taller, more like 5'11ish. But same kinda face, same nose, short hair and a backwards hat on. He was an employee there.

Eric really did have pretty regular features. He resembles a lot of people. Its strange how badly he was bullied over his appearance when he literally looked like anyone. Even in high school, I would never have looked at someone who resembled him and think he was ugly or weird looking. He and Dylan just Looked like regular guys to me.
