Face Recognition and You: What Celebrities Do You Look Like?

November 19th, 2006 · 2 Comments

The other day I was hanging out, writing songs on an acoustic guitar, and Myspacin’ it, when I noticed one of my friends had a little flash applet in their profile that compared their facial picture to celebrities. I’m not one to deck out my Myspace page with all kinds of flashy things (my actual Myspace page has the default layout, as I try to spare visitors the pain of horrid style-sheeting), but I found this to be particularly interesting since it seemed to do a decent job recognizing and matching faces. The site requires registration, but overall it was pretty painless (remember to answer “No thanks” to all their fabulous targeted offers).

The real reason I’m posting this here? This site said I look like Chuck Norris, and there is no greater honor.
