Fun with Facial Recognition Widgets.

22 01 2008

So my friend, Brianna, has an adorable blog that she updates with pics of her cute baby, Ella. Recently, she used this little widget to figure out who Ella looked more like – she or her husband [who, by the way, look a lot alike, now that I think about it]. I got to thinking – who do I look like? Since I don’t actually have any pics of my biological dad, trusty husband and almost-twenty-eight-year-old Adam Zissman became my guinea pig. And the results are in…

Unsatisfied with the results, as Ella, too turned out to be equal parts mom and dad, I thought I’d do another little experiment, using Jim as the lab rat this time. Too many times over the past fifteen years, people have been told, “You look so much like your dad!” by people who have no idea that we’re not actually genetically related. I’m not sure whether I ought to take that as a compliment or an insult, considering the fact that his face is covered almost entirely with [grey] hair [did you really think I’d leave that out, Jim?]. The resulting data is below. Glad to know that I look at least 9% more like the person I’m actually spawn of. Whatever. I’ve seen this little tool work pretty well for other people!

Yay for the blog shout out! It’s good to know someone else reads/visits my blog besides me. Ha. We also tried to see who Tanner, the dog, looked more like. But they wouldn’t recognize Tanner’s dog face as a human face. I don’t know why…he’s more human than dog. It would have been funny. Anyway, hope you guys are doing well up there!
