    Facing Public Opinion

    I stumbled upon the site FaceStat, which allows you to upload a picture and have random strangers describe and tag it.  Here’s what happened to my avatar picture:


    I’m rather impressed they picked up on “writer”, “teacher”, “nerd”, and “father”. (All are correct). It was gratifying to get “nice”, “caring”, and “handsome”. No getting around it: I’m “dorky”, which I suppose cancels out the vote for handsome.

    And then they added “normal.” Well, I guess they can’t win ’em all. 😉
