What I've Said Those Close to Me Pick a Day, Any Day All About Me QaF Vault - great fanfic! In Days of Yore In Days of Yore On to the Future On to the Future
VINDICATION!!!!!!!!!! - Happy's Obsession
or what I do between bouts of Real Life
Way back, when I did my QaF set visit, I was priviledged enough to get to see Brian & Justin's drivers licenses. I memorized what I could on them, and came back and reported that they lived at "6 Ross Street".

And was soundly chided by everyone, who said that canon said they lived at "Fuller & Tremont", or "6 Fuller". People questioned me so much, I started to doubt my own memory.

But here is Justin's license. Note the address?


It also makes me laugh, because I remember bliss_'s comment, when I told her how tall it said Justin was - "5 feet 9 inches? That bitch is shorter than me!" And you know it, because I'm 5'9", and I towered over little Randy.

Odd that they have his eyes listed as brown on there. But spiffy license.

I wonder why they didn't use a s1 picture for it...?

OMG yes! I was so happy to see the loft's address on that.

Sigh, lol. He's 5'7" tops, and that's being v.v. generous. I'm 5'3" I was wearing 2" heels and he was maybe two inches taller than me with me right next to him, shoulder to shoulder. Emphasis on maybe. More like one or so.

I am 5'4" and was in flats, and ITA. It's kind of cute, really, how they keep claiming he's taller.

HAHAHAH!!! It says that Justin has brown eyes!!???????? 0_o
Darn... Randy looks like he's in a mug shot!

Yeah, you can see 6 Ross Street pretty clearly
over the door of the loft building in S1.

But Brian is also pretty clear that the loft is on
6 Fuller, corner of Tremont.

It's the Curse of CowLip -- no consistency even in
the props!

That's THREE different birthdays for the Just-Man --
December, March, and now November. No wonder the boy
is so schizophrenic!

I did notice at one point that Brian had had two birthdays to Justin's one (I mean they both gave their ages, leading to this conclusion). I think it was in S2: am looking out for it. I remember thinking, No wonder Brian feels old. So if BRIAN had two birthday months I'd be totally with it.

Fuller?? Who came up with Fuller? Brian said "the corner of Tremont", which to me, means he lives on Ross Street at the corner of Tremont. Plus I very clearly saw "6 Ross Street" over the door of Brian's building when they were filming ep 401 so yeah, that's always been his address. But there are so many other things wrong with that license, LOL! Brown eyes? 5'9? (the little liar!) And was Justin even living with Brian back in Nov 2000?

As for the pic.... even though it's too recent to have been taken in 2000, I love that it sucks. Very authentic in a driver's license sort of way. Thanks for finding this little ebay gem. :D

Driver's license, dude! Not prison photo. I even smiled for my DL, jeez. . . *grin*

Alos if you look at the scene where B,J, and M are coming out of the loft at the end of episode 101, the sign over the door says "6 ROSS St".

I don't think they were paying enough to the editors on the show :)

His birthday is November 18th? Did we know this before or am I just a bad fan?

I'm guessing it was made for the ep in season 3 when Justin shows his ID to the cop and the cop drops it on the ground. We don't actually see the ID in the ep, but they probably would have made a prop license for that scene.

It only lasts 4 years? Is this a standard American thing? Ours last indefinitely here.
qafhappy From: qafhappy Date: August 29th, 2005 01:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, licenses are only good for 4 years in the US. You can sometimes get an extension, for another 4 years, but after that - you have to show up again, get photographed, and pay again.

How do they get old people to stop driving when they are too senile? I think there might be a problem with non-expiring drivers licenses...

Interesting - I learn something new all the time through my flist! But you have to pay again every 4 years too?! Wow, how much more do I like our system now!

They don't is basically the answer to that. Unless someone actually gets caught driving up the road the wrong way or something, chances are you can keep driving (however badly) until you die.

In Australia you can get a licence for 5 years if you're a good driver (not too many demerits, fines etc from your last 5 years), but you pay nearly $100 each time. Or you can get a cheaper one for one or two years: mandatory if you're a new or bad driver, optional if you just don't want to shell out that much money in one go.

Curiously, despite your strange customs, the UK's road toll is one of the best in the world, whereas the US is towards the bottom of advanced nations on this score (largely because of widespread seat belt non-use).

Did Brian's driver's license have the same address? Or is the address on Justin's license his parent's house? Since there's not much rhyme or reason as to the cannon of this show I have decided that most of it is just random nonsense. Randy's eyes are not brown. But I do think that he is at least 5'9 or maybe 5'10. Hal is about the same height.
qafhappy From: qafhappy Date: August 29th, 2005 02:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Brian's DL had the same address on it.

And I met Hal - he was definitely shorter than me, and I'm 5'9". I enclosed a picture link below, which shows him to be 5'7", probably, at the most.
