I'd love to show you a pic of my 27 year old nephew and a patient of mine I saw a few weeks ago. Alas, HIPAA won't allow me, but these two guys look alike.

I was watching the news years ago and I see a mug shot of me as a bank robber. He had shorter cut hair but it was freaky how much he looked like me

Not me, I just have this twine.

It's so simple to find your twin. He's the one wearing a goatee.

I saw a picture of myself at a cafe in Seattle.

I've never been to Seattle. A friend took it years ago.

A friend of mine found my doppelganger in Portland. I sent the photo to my sisters and they thought it was me.

farkin' eerie.

Remember, you're 1 in a 1,000,000.

That means there's 7,800 people exactly like you in the world, and all of them are more successful.

The interesting part: people who look alike also employ the same facial expressions.

Well, I feel real bad for my twin.  Hope they live in a part of the world where mirrors aren't prevalent.

Many years ago a coworker gave me an article he clipped from the paper interviewing a two couples that moved into some new multi-family housing. The dads looked just like me and my best friend. Same hair color and styles, goatees, ponytail for me, nearly shaven for him... just, weird.

So basically what you're saying is that you're still laying low?

I met my twin one day. He was maybe two years younger than me and a few pounds lighter, but he looked like me. Oh, and he was gay and had a rather active love life. He was also a pretty nice guy as none of his partners ever had anything nasty to say when they mistook me for him.

Were that true then my pornhub searches would be far more fruitful.

That twin of mine is one lucky SOB

This is a well-documented phenomenon and is a major problem in my opinion with facial recognition software. Nevermind the fact that the software is badly unreliable, but you don't need a deepfake to fool it - you just need your twin.

Pretty cool. Although, the photographer is cheating a little with the black and white.

A woman saw me at Target walking down an aisle, gasped and turned white.
She then told me I was a spitting image of her dead son, and she thought I was a ghost.

That will freak you out.

I also had a girl once insist she knew me, and my doppelganger had the same first name.

There is also a guy at Lowes that was a teacher and thought I was a student of his.

I must look very common.

And they're both ready for a Buddy-Buddy Comedy Series!
//Well, 1-2 seasons of one. Maybe not spin-off territory. But it'll have a strong start.

I used to be a courier downtown which meant I pretty much carted paper between the same few banks, law firms, and government offices. In one office people kept asking "don't I know you questions" over and over. I slowly pieced together that there was a guy in that office who looked just like me and it was confusing everyone when they would see him at his desk and then me dropping stuff off at reception. Never met the guy.

There's a set of clones in my neighborhood who both walk black shaggy dogs (but different breeds.)

I've even asked them, do you have a different dog you also walk, or a brother that lives nearby.

Nope, they're just clones.
 
2020-05-05 7:41:32 AM  
Eh. A couple of those are excellent doppelgängers, but in general the matching hair/beard/glasses/clothing/etc are doing most of the "twin" work.

Photographer: I found someone who looks just like you.
Me: Neat.
Photographer: Why don't you two dudes go hug and smush your cheeks together
Me: Um... No thanks.

Some of these I might believe are siblings, some I might believe are cousins.  There's only 1 or 2 where I might believe they are twins.

Now, if you want to hear something weird.  I encountered a guy in college, he was only in one of my classes, had the same name as me, same birthday, born in the same hospital, and his social security number was 1 higher than mine.

I've heard of at least two doppelgangers but never managed to meet them. One was apparently so similar that his restaurant co-workers came over and asked me why the hell I wasn't getting to work and was sitting down to eat instead
 
2020-05-05 8:41:06 AM  
A lot of these people don't look alike at all.  But these guys could be twins...

Is it just me or do these people not actually look alike? I see a few similarities in proportions but almost all of the similarity is in style and pose.

You know who does look the same? A certain type of middle aged New York Jewish woman. I dont live anywhere near NYC but I've met about half a dozen that not only look the same and style the same but have the same exact mannerisms and personality. If I didn't know better I would confuse them all for the same person.
 
2020-05-05 8:43:23 AM  
Close enough, in many cases, to mistake one for the other if you knew the other. Many of them have significant differences together, unless you have mild face blindness. Some were a stretch.

I couldn't help but think they looked... British, but I see the photographer is Canadian, which could explain it, to a mild degree.

Would be fun if they'd actually do a DNA test to see how many are in fact related.

Why did he make them pose like intimate couples?
 
2020-05-05 9:07:03 AM  
That would be cool if a really good looking girl didn't like you. You could find her doppleganger and then take her on a date in front of the other girl. She'd get really jealous.

Lookalike != twin
 
2020-05-05 9:13:32 AM  
My aunt was a missionary in Russia back in the day and her friend visited us and immediately talked to me in Russian for a second because I was apparently identical to someone she knew.

So I got that going for me.
 
2020-05-05 9:15:22 AM  
Seems like these two just found each other.

Once in a strip club, a stripper got angry after seeing me, she thought I was her brother.
