22. My favorite part of this shot is Wil Wheaton's expression

He seems to get a lot of fan hate for playing Wesley Crusher, but he's a actually a pretty cool guy--this reminds me that I need to go check out his blog more often.

From wilwheaton.net:

It was Sunday at Austin Wizard World Con. I had the flu, and almost missed this photo session. Though I had a fever and no cowbell, I sat there and smiled for everyone as best as I could, grateful that Iíd spent the entire night throwing up so there was nothing left in me to vomit all over the fans like I was cosplaying from The Exorcist.

...

Iím not sure why this picture is being circulated online, like Patrick is giving the literal Picard Facepalm, because thatís just not what happened. We were all delighted for this young couple, and I know that I was honoured to be part of this moment in their lives. I think itís likely that Patrick was just wiping sweat off his brow or something like that.

It wasnít awkward, other than that moment when everyone except the guy had no idea what was going on. Once we knew what was happening, it was awesome. Iím incredibly happy for these people, and I love that I got to be part of what is hopefully a moment theyíll celebrate and remember for the rest of their lives.
