Your celebrity look-alikes

Try this:
http://www.myheritage.com/FP/Company...1&u=g0&lang=EN

You upload a photo and it uses some new genealogy face recognition thats in beta test to tell you what celebrity you look like.

You have to register to get the results, but I used a bogus bunch of info and it worked fine, doesnt require a valid email or any 'activation'.

Yes, its a real thing, no pictures of baboons or anything like that.

My best matches were Ewan McGregor and Alec Baldwin. Obviously a good picture of me...

(), you HOBL, you!

My match was Mick Jagger--pretty cool* 8) but for the fact that I'm a middle-aged*woman of Asian descent* .* *

I think I need to find a better picture of me with my mouth not grinning so widely.

Re: Your celebrity look-alikes

I put in a picture of me wearing mirrored sunglasses and a staw hat. It came back with Jonny Depp -- wearing mirrored sunglasses and a straw hat.

I also put in a picture of my dog, Bubba. It couldn't find a match.

Looks to me like a random celebrity name generator: Ronald Regan, Lyndon Johnson & Barbara Striesand?

I'll take it-69% Matthew Perry, 65% George Clooney, 56% Harold Macmillan. But my friends always said I looked like Bette Davis!

Re: Your celebrity look-alikes

Hmm--I wonder if these could be randomly generated? My husband, a handsome gentleman 50 years old and of slavic descent, matched with Michael Jackson at about age 12. Both cute, but so different.

I don't think that's what it is. It couldn't find a match for Bubba. And in my picture it seemed to recognize the sunglasses as several of the matches had sunglasses and my facial hair as almost all of the matches had facial hair. And in my number 1 match it picked Jonny Depp in a straw hat with facial hair and sunglasses. It seems to recognize some things.

Keep those quips flowing. This one wasn't a "milk-out-the-noser"
bit it did produce a wee-wee guffaw.

Reminds me of a story! Hey, what the heck doesnt?

The first time I drove across the country, I decided to try out a couple of the truck stop chains for lunch. There were Burns Brothers and Sapp Brothers at almost every exit.

Generally humongous burgers and sandwiches of the basic variety, along with lots of coffee.

Two funny bits; one where I ordered corned beef hash and eggs and when she asked how I wanted my eggs I automatically said "Poached". The look on her face told me immediately that I was the first person to say that word in her presence that wasnt talking about hunting. I received, along with 2 metric tons of canned greasy hash, a bowl with roughly a half gallon of boiling water with six eggs...more or less cooked...floating in it. Lesson learned.

The part that reminded me of your post was the next day, when I ordered a burger and fries. Upon delivering the meal with a winsome smile and a flirty wink, the waitress let me know "The fries were a little cold, so I gave you extra".

Louis Black contends that there are some phrases, that if heard without the supporting dialog, can cause your head to explode. His was "If it wasnt for my horse, I'd have never spent that year in college".

Now you know what mine was. I spent the better part of that afternoon trying to decipher the train of thought that went from giving someone something of poor quality and deciding that giving more of it made up for that somehow.

A very, very long walk for that nugget. Thank you all for taking it with me.
