If I were a Finnish politician….

March 26, 2007

… I’d look like this.


Excellent UK blog Harry’s Place points to a Finnish website that enables you to see which politician looks most like you — using THE most brilliant version of facial recognition software. Apparently, there is research that indicates people vote for the candidate who looks most like themselves.

For a laugh I uploaded a picture of me and scored a 74% recognition factor with Ms Vainitovakatovataarovoanilaa (or whatever — I can’t read Finnish).

The search is only available for Finnish parliamentary candidates at this stage.

Still, think of the possibilities. I’d come out looking like either John Howard or Kevin Rudd, if either of them grew a beard. But Ms V didn’t have one either.
