Family ties

I followed this link from Reluctant Nomad's blog [The Official Opposition in my race for the SA BlogAwards 2006 - you should check it out, it's not bad ;-)].

Anyway, the link will take you to a website that demo's facial recognition software and you can upload a photo of yourself and it gets scanned by their software and then it tells you what celebrities you most resemble. It's pretty quick and I thought it was rather cool. Well, at first anyway.

Because apparently I most resemble:


Shania Twain

Rachel Bilson

Lena Olin








Katie Holmes



and... get this...

Leonardo DiCaprio










How the hell did he get in there???!

hahaha!

On the other hand, I fared better than Hubby - when I uploaded our wedding photo one of his matches was Barbara Bush. Another was Sammy Davis Jr. Can we therefore deduce that Barbs and Sammy look alike? Perhaps someone's great-great-granpappy was gettin' up to mischief in the cotton fields? Right, well, before I get had up for libel and slander and all sorts of other nasty things (not to mention what Barbara & Sammy might do) I think I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions about this demo software.

Sammy's not going to do much, I'm afraid...

I got a very mixed bag. With three guys, not all of which are good-looking. Not sure how to react.
And then I also got Frida Kahlo and Kathleen Turner, among other less fun but more good-looking ones (thank god). Hmmm.

You silly girls - switch off the male faces so that you don't have shocks like leonardo popping up in your list! That's what I did! The females in my case, that is.

Yeah, I know, that does make the list less fun by being less bizarre.

Barbara Bush & Sammy Davis Jr? Oncea again proof that love is blind.

Lori said...

You are beautiful no matter who you look like.

LiVEwiRe said...

Lol...Leo? I can't say I see the resemblance but if you ever wanted to disguise yourself as a male you now know which one! =)

LiVEwiRe said...

Ok... even better. I thought I DID switch the male thing off but one of the people i apparently look like (And this is for you, Anne...) is Jeff Goldblum! I am NOT even kidding! Perhaps it was the black glasses I had on in the photo? *sigh* One can hope...

Barbara Bush?? My God, that's rough.

Terri said...

Anne - I just googled Frida Kahlo and all I can say is I hope you have a less painful and turbulent life than she did :-)

Nomad - I couldn't see where to do that, maybe I'll look harder next time.

Just Me - 'Tis indeed!

Chitty - U gonna give us your results?

Kyknoord - lol! Plenty of proof of that in this world, eh?

Lori - Aw thanks Sweetie!

Livewire - Jeff Goldblum?! You might wanna re-think meeting Anne in the flesh... could be a little awkward?! :-D

Jeff - You don't know the half of it! Needless to say Hubby is NOT impressed and we will not be purchasing said software in a hurry, hehe.
