“Now BBC reports that last year Teghan Lucas set out to test the hypothesis that everyone has a living double. Armed with a public collection of photographs of U.S. military personnel and the help of colleagues from the University of Adelaide, Lucas painstakingly analyzed the faces of nearly four thousand individuals, measuring the distances between key features such as the eyes and ears.” From: Do You Have A Living Doppelgänger? – Slashdot

Well, you might not. I, however, have bumped into at least one person who was my physical double, and every time a friend of mine moves away, I always end up hearing from them about a guy in their new town who looks just like me. At this point, I’m starting to doubt the genetic diversity of short, hairy Portuguese men with glasses. (Not to be confused with Portugal the Man.)
