Sometimes the mind wanders and a guy starts to wonder about things like, say, how a search engine finds images that have a lot in common. You never know when something like that might come in handy in a plot or even just in real life.
Unable to focus on anything else for a few minutes, I grabbed my phone and tried it with my own face, the one that shows up on my new About me page.
What to expect?
I remember a woman on an airplane once asked me if I was Richard Dreyfuss. Me?
Then just the other day, I’m told, my sweet granddaughter saw a picture of Brahma, the Hindu god of gods, depicted in a children’s book sporting a white beard. Papa!
Needless to say, I had high expectations for my little experiment. I tapped the phone.
In the blink of an eye I was scrolling through the “similar images,” which turned out to be a diverse collection of men and women – some of them bald, some clean-shaven, dark hair, white hair, curly and straight.
Then there’s this guy that I hope I never see in the mirror. (Crossing my fingers that the link isn’t broken again.)
Stay curious, my friends.
