Me Looka Like a Man

Recently over at Myspace, one of my friends posted a bulletin entitled: I Look Just Like... It contained a link to My Heritage.com, which has "face recognition software" installed. You just upload a photo of yourself and it will scan your face and give you a list of famous people that you resemble. Pretty cool stuff. Here's who I got, in order of appearance: (From L to R)


Edmund Husserl (German philosopher)
Orlando Bloom (Actor)
Nora Jones (Singer)
John Cleese (Actor)
Diego Rivera (Socialist Mexican painter)
Margaret Thatcher (WTF?) (Prime Minister of England 1979-1990)
Peter Gabriel (Singer)
Leon Trotsky (Russian revolutionary and Communist theorist)
Mika Hakkinen (Finnish racing driver)
Iain banks (Author)

I'd be interested in seeing who you get. Share with me!

The question is, do you in fact resemble any of those people? And if so, which one do you think you resemble the most?

That was fun. I gave it a go and ended up posting the results on my blog.

Mariana-
Funny that you ask that. A friend of mine asked me which ones I thought I resembled, and though I can see a little bit of myself in almost all of them (with the exception of Margaret Thatcher...that one remains a mystery), the two I think I most look like are:

Edmund Husserl- I have a similar nose and eyes.

&

Diego Rivera- I have wavy hair like his (when I allow it to get long...I like to keep it short, otherwise it's outta control, I'm talkin' ringlets a la Shirley Temple). Also, his eyes and mouth.

I think the other people like Orlando Bloom and Peter Gabriel are just in there because they have similar facial hair.

Sugarfoot-
Wheee! I'm glad someone else did it too, so I could see who they got compared to. And don't sweat 'The Donald.' Hey, I got MARGARET THATCHER. WTF?

Velma-
Ooh, Ted Bundy was kinda cute. He wasn't known as The Charismatic Killer fer nuthin'! Annnnd remember what Ali said: ""Be loud, be pretty and keep their black-hatin' asses in their chairs."" And even though that has nothing to do with anything, it's the only quote I know. So...enjoy! ;)

Thanks for sharing with me!

Ragdoll-
Ooh, you got some cool people. Arthur Rimbaud was a cutie!...dunno about Babe Ruth. I think everyone gets someone random.

The only Mick Jagger memories I have are watching Gilda Radner's female-version impersonation of him. It was hilariously dead-on.

Thanks for participating! :D
