A photograph of a smiling face

Greetings, one and all, and welcome to todays post, one which I personally find highly amusing. I have been hearing a lot about an internet face recognition site in recent weeks (www.myheritage.com/FP/Company/tryFaceRecognition.php should any of you care to visit after reading this) and the hilarious consequences of its "matching" of your face with celebrities. The idea that Jack Sykes should have the same face as Britney Spears is one of those things that just shouldn't be thought about to deeply!

Anyway, I found the website and so submited a picture of myself. The first matches were, how can I put it, not what I expected!.
Calista Flockhart, known only to me as "the girl who's going out with Harrison Ford" and Pavel Nedved, the Czech midfielder who should be admired for his hair if nothing else!

Then came the middle range of matches, and whilst I have always thought I bore a resemblance to Tom Cruise I was rather surprised that my face can apparently belong to both Gladiator Russell Crowe and that girl from Pirates of the Carribean et al.


Moving into the upper echelons of matching now with 70% was Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum, a man who I always admired for the immortal line "that is one big pile of . . . . " and my second most likely match, Country Star Willie Nelson!?. Hmmm, I definately did not see that one coming, however he certainly looks like a very happy man with a beard so I guess I can live with it.

So now, I'm guessing, you're all on the edge of your seats pondering the questuion of who my face most resembles. I had several guesses and even a few wild hopes of who I may secretly look like (according to the massive authority of this random website at least).

Well . . . . I was wrong.

You, if you had a guess . . . . . .are also wrong

The man my face resembles with 76% accuracy is in fact . . . .


Yes, the Top Gear presented affectionately refered to as the Hamster!

Well I dare say it could have been worse . . . . Imagine how impressed Britney must have felt when she was matched with the one and only Jack Sykes . . . . .

Lol. I see it, I think.

Realising that this could dangerously go one of only two possible ways (bizarrely flattering or self-esteem crushing) I nevertheless tried this, cause I'm bored of gastritis [worry not - I don't have it, yet, unless the stress of studying about it gives me it].

The web reply was actually quite good, hence why I'm publishing it! 83% Anne Hathaway. Nicely done.

Although to be fair with a track record of saying that one person can look like Keira Knightley, Willie Nelson, Russell Crowe and the Hamster at the same time, I'm not entirely sure this website should be trusted. Nevertheless it was nice to me so I like it!
