This morning, I saw Beth's link dump post, and one of the items was a link to a face recognition site. And I tried it.
Now, I wasn't overly impressed with it.
I uploaded a picture of Ralph Waite (the dad from The Waltons). It found no matches in its celebrity database. Okay, he's not a big enough celebrity. So I uploaded a picture I took of Garret Wang (Harry Kim from Star Trek: Voyager). It said he looked like Jason Biggs, Nicolas Cage, and Ed Gein.
Still not impressed, I uploaded a picture of my Big Sister (who's 5'4"). It found some hits, but I'll let her tell about that, should she be so inclined.
But it found hits for me. It couldn't figure out if I'm male or female, apparently. I'm male. I've checked and confirmed that.
Anyway, the darn thing said I look like (in order):
- Tina Turner (54%)
- Michael Jackson (from the Jackson Five era) (45%)
- Judy Garland (circa Wizard of Oz) (43%)
- Nicole Kidman (42%)
- Eddie Murphy (40%)
- Harry Belafonte (39%)
- John Wilkes Booth (38%)
- Uday Hussein (38%)
- Jennifer Connelly (37%)
- Drew Barrymore (36%)
I'm at a loss for words.
