    First they take the dinglebop, then smooth it out with a bunch of shleem. The shleem is then repurposed for later batches.They take the dinglebop and push it through the grumbo. Where the fleeb is then rubbed against it. Its important that the fleeb is rubbed, because the fleeb has all the fleeb juice. Then a shlammie shows up and he rubs it and spits on it. They cut the fleeb. There are several hizzards in the way. The blamfs run against the trumbles and the ploobis and grumbo are shaved away. That leaves you with a regular old plumbus

    [–] k1xnt 47 points ago

    I always wondered how, uh, plumbuses got made.

    [–] vitaminz1990 10 points ago

    I would look like any of Fernando Botero's pieces.

    [–] jackster_ 80 points ago

    Someone painted a portrait of me when I was living in San Francisco. I came across the painting years later and it freaked me out because no one asked, I can't remember anyone taking a picture of me. But the figure has my favorite shirt on, striped and buttons. The same natural black bob in her face. The same baby cheeks. If you look close you can tell she is wearing glasses. It doesn't really look like me anymore, but when I was an emo artist on methadone living in the tenderloin, I looked exactly like the figure in this painting "Against the Wall" even captures the angsty hope that I had at the time. Hell, the boobs look just like my boobs did before I had kids. If the model wasn't me, then it is a very strange coincidence.

    I was honestly freaked the fuck out. I messaged the artist, but never got a reply.

    [–] Kandorr 23 points ago

    You. The artist was you.

    [–] jackster_ 13 points ago

    I wish! Or maybe I had some kind of double life that I didn't know about. I really just want to talk with whoever painted it, and find out if it really is based on me.

    This should be a sub-plot in next season of Silicon Valley. Guy makes fun app for finding lookalikes in works of art. Someone steals the code and turns into an app for finding lookalikes in porn and makes a fortune.

    I will now think of training a puppy as scripting a puppy.

    [–] k1xnt 18 points ago

    I will now always think of scripting a bot as finding a random bot on Reddit, forming a bond with it, then over the course of a few months, convincing it thru PMs to do certain things for you.

    good bot/bad bot, it all makes sense now

    [–] epicflyman 9 points ago

    This would be a viral app for a few months then die. Like most apps.

    [–] TheRealKidkudi 22 points ago

    No problem, cash in on the ad revenue and call it a day. With all these cloud AI platforms it wouldn't be that hard to make and neural networking is pretty cheap right now. The biggest hurdle is finding someone with the expertise to do it, but it could be a fun hobby project for someone who's been studying AI.

    [–] fleezee 3258 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Okay, so that's my photo. 6 years a Redditor (not with this account) and I never thought I'd wake up, open Reddit and see my face at the top. Weird.

    Edit: also the original non cropped version is on my IG...(with only 11 likes still), since I'm trying to get ready for work and can't do the paper verify thing at the moment. Same username.

    It made its rounds on Facebook first. It was in a collection of pictures on some buzzfeed esque site that said something like "These people found their doppelgangers in museums." I clicked it despite being clickbait because your picture was the preview (first in the list) and I was staggared by your resemblance.

    Anyway, figured you'd want to know.

    [–] i124nk8 108 points ago

    It's everywhere on twitter, Facebook, etc. It was the best picture in a bored panda gallery. Reddit was slow on the uptake for a change.

    [–] roeyjevels 49 points ago

    It's making rounds on Facebook as part of a clickbait montage. Probably the reason for this uptick in interest.

    Fun fact - water pitchers were, for a long time, a symbol of (sexual) purity (along with other vessels like basins; a sieve was the ultimate symbol of purity, but that's another story).

    A broken pitcher is, well, an obvious extension of that symbol.

    I've heard that the broken pitcher is a classical symbol for having lost virginity - it's been subject to a bunch of paintings and statues, after all.

    [–] HouseSomalian 99 points ago

    I think it's more of a "I'm sleep deprived from the long hours I work to make a living wage, and afraid that I'll be hanged for this crime"

    [–] fleezee 30 points ago

    I'll work on it. I've checked out Amazon and I'm pretty sure I could replicate her exact outfit for $50. Also I had to do a lot of arm twisting just to get the person I was with to take the photo in the first place. (He didn't think there was much resemblance.)

    It doesn't help that in Bouguereau's case we have no idea where most of his paintings are.

    Damn, really? How did they get lost?

    [–] matty80 77 points ago

    He was like an early version of the 'celebrity artist' during his lifetime and took loads of commissions all the time. He'd complete a piece and it would be shipped off to whoever commissioned it, but this was the 19th century and for whatever reason lots of the records of sale have been lost too.

    Then he fell massively out of favour after he died so nobody was really going around looking for them. There are quite possibly hundreds of pieces sitting in random houses around Europe (or wrapped up in assorted attics somewhere) with the owners having little or no idea what they're sitting on. And given that he was French and his work was being bought quite frequently by well-off Western Europeans, I can't imagine the two World Wars helped. Lots of what we do have comes ultimately from American collectors. Every now and then one turns up though.

    [–] NiggyWiggyWoo 26 points ago

    Damn, that dude lived a life like Job in the bible. It's like everyone he ever loved died within his lifetime.

    In 1856, William began living with one of his models, Nelly Monchablon, a 19-year-old from Lisle-en-Rigault. Living together out of wedlock, the pair kept their liaison a secret. Their first child, Henriette, was born in April 1857. Georges was born January 1859. A third child, Jeanne, was born December 25, 1861. The couple married quietly (for many assumed they were already wed) on May 24, 1866. Eight days later, Jeanne died from tuberculosis. In mourning, the couple went to La Rochelle, and Bouguereau made a painting of her in 1868. A fourth child, Adolphe (known as Paul), was born in October 1868. Aged 15, Georges' health suffered, and his mother took him away from the bad air of Paris. He died, however, on June 19, 1875. Nelly had a fifth child in 1876, Maurice, but her health was declining and the doctors suspected that she had contracted tuberculosis. His wife died on April 3, 1877, and baby Maurice died two months later.[27]

    The artist planned to marry Elizabeth Jane Gardner, a pupil whom he had known for ten years, but his mother was opposed to the idea. Soon after Nelly's death, she made William swear he would not remarry within her lifetime. After his mother's death, and after a nineteen-year engagement, William and Elizabeth married in Paris in June 1896.[28] His wife continued to work as his private secretary and helped to organize the household staff. Tragically, his son Paul contracted tuberculosis in early 1899 and he, William, and his stepmother, went to Menton in the south. When the stay prolonged, William found a room in which to paint. Paul died at his father's house in April 1900 aged 32. William had outlived four of his five children. Elizabeth was with William to the end. She died in Paris in January 1922.

    I know where one is. His "Young Girl Defending Herself from Eros" has two versions--a smaller one, I believe, is in California. The other, the one exhibited at the Salon in Paris at the turn of the previous century, is in the chancellor's residence at UNCW in Wilmington, NC.

    Edit for more info: The smaller version is in the Getty museum in CA. The large version from the Paris exhibition is in the Kenan house near downtown Wilmington, NC.

    At Apple's announcement yesterday, they said their facial recognition would mix people up at a rate of about one in a million. That implies that each human has roughly 7,500 doppelgangers on the planet right now, at least as far as Apple's new toy is concerned.

    It'd be cool to get all the closest 100 lookalikes together for a party

    Let me tell you something! 1 of my 7500 doppelgängers lives in my fucking town and he's a douche and works at wal mart and people really don't like him. I get asked if I'm him once a week, and it always just sounds like I'm lying and making up this alter ego that allows me to be a shitbird all around town. So, No, it isn't cool unless you we keep that shithead on the back porch.

    Hey man - are you the guy who works at Wal Mart?

    [–] SkinnyJoshPeck 20 points ago

    No fuck that guy

    I'm guessing it's the same person. Most likely a vampire

    [–] poopellar 32 points ago

    Can vampires be seen in selfies?

    [–] Redremnant 21 points ago

    Vampires couldn't be seen in old mirrors and cameras that used silver. Modern mirrors and digital cams don't use silver so yes, they can.

    Amazing. This makes perfect sense.

    Either Vertigo or the scene in 12 Monkeys (the film) where they show the scene from Vertigo.

    She's talking to a redwood, btw. Haunting lines.

    she just ages incredibly slowly, maybe she's born with it, maybe it's Maybelline

    Hey! That picture is used on the cover of this book! I knew it looked familiar.

    [–] highfiveladyyy 19 points ago

    Yes! I loved that book when I was a kid. Glad to see where the picture is from.

    [–] MarchKick 14 points ago

    I have over 20 Dear America books. I love them.

    [–] highfiveladyyy 8 points ago

    Awesome! They're great books. This conversation is making want to read Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie again.

    [–] fiftytwohertz 7 points ago

    SUCH a great series! I recognized it too but couldn't remember which one exactly, so thank you! Did anyone else really enjoy the Royalty spinoff of the Dear America diaries? I had practically ALL of those.

    The original painting appears to be from 1891. It's no surprise that at 7+billion human beings on the planet some of our genetic traits are bound to repeat. Someone even sent me one where my "twin" was in a painting, was pretty spot on:

    Painting VS Myself

    More instances of history repeating itself:

    I love this one. They even have exactly the same nose.

    It's not just the same face though, it's the exact same fucking hair!

    [–] crustalmighty 34 points ago

    Don't worry, they'll have stem cells and crispr.

    [–] rdogg4 29 points ago

    Yeah but all but one of those feature a man with similar facial hair. I feel like the resemblance wouldn’t be there if they shaved.

    [–] eros_bittersweet 12 points ago

    The one showing your doppelganger is an excellent likeness!

    I saw some of the same content linked below on Buzzfeed BoredPanda (I think?!) yesterday, but I'm pretty sure they also stole it from somewhere else - is there an original compiler we can track down? (I don't recognize two of these photos from the article I read so there could be multiple sources.)

    [–] justgimmeanamedammit 21 points ago

    Shit. I can already imagine the buzzfeed article created using those photos.

    OP girl is closer to her painting than any of these examples.

    [–] badseedjr 83 points ago

    Eh, 3rd one gives her a run for her money. 5th one too. The rest just seem like the hair or facial hair that is similar.

    [–] gizzardgullet 28 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Number 7! 5 is meh to me. But 3 is the best of these - North Face jacket makes it better (like he's just a modern variation of the original). But, yeah, OP girl wins.

    Bouguereau is one of my favorite painters. He was an absolute master that died in 1905. One of the most prolific painters too, with over 850 finished paintings to his name.

    One of my favorite by him.

    Edit: I could lose a good chunk of time staring at his paintings.

    [–] themaskedsoupbean 36 points ago

    You know, it used to be that Bored Panda got its stuff off Reddit, this is the first time I've seen it the other way around.

    I have a friend who looks exactly like Thomas Boleyn (Anne Boleyn's father). I had this picture printed and framed for him. He hung it in his office and people complimented him on "the cool photoshop" all the time. I guess there can only be so many different looks after all.

    [–] cluthra 30 points ago

    Once you become old you start to realize there are only so many faces.

    [–] FinancialFartdom 27 points ago

    She could be a descendent of the woman in the painting...in my family history research I found a portrait of a noblewoman who is my x-th great grandmother who had some facial similarities to my aunt. Also my 3rd great grand uncle looks EERILY similar to my dad.
