The Lost Man From The 80s

the-80s-man

You are looking at Soviet soldier Bakhredtin Khakimov. He’s been missing since September 1980 after he received a head wound while fighting a battle in the Shanind district, which marked the end of the Cold War confrontations.

Up until two weeks ago, the lost man from the 80s was living under a new name — and for the past 33 years he’s been enjoying a semi-nomadic life in Afghanistan with the people who sheltered him after his injury.

Except Bossy is not so sure. There are conflicts regarding the soldier’s story, and whether or not he stole a gun from his own troops in order to provide Islamic guerilla fighters with additional weapons.

But also. If this guy has been lost since the 80s, wouldn’t he look like this:

And yes, Bossy spent her lunch hour transforming a herbal healer into someone who could have played guitar in The Fixx.

Because that’s Bossy. She gives until it hurts (you.)

Or maybe you want to click this link about Bossy’s Son’s tailored pants. Just ’cause.

    Props to Bossy for working in a reference to The Fixx (whom I often confuse with The Jam, but that’s another story.)

    Would he wear the turban over or under that beautiful hair? What are the turban rules?

    Bossy, your knowledge of both 80s politics and new wave music impresses the neon socks off me.

    I just had the greatest idea. You should teach Photoshop classes one night a week in your living room. I would totally come if I didn’t live 2,000 miles away.
