There's A Way To Find Your Döppleganger Online

Science has said that there are seven people in the world who look just like you. I'm not sure what scientist really said it, but I keep hearing this fact over and over again and again. So I thought to myself, is this really true? Are there really seven other me's running around the world? This feels like something out of "The Vampire Diaries" with all of the Petrova Döpplegangers, except now instead of being vampires, we're all just kinda chilling.

Recently, I have heard about a site called Twin Strangers. The site offers you the ability to find your look alike/twin/döppleganger from anywhere in the world (or as some guy in a comments section on Facebook said... IT'S THE CIA TRYING TO TAKE YOUR INFO!) I read a few success stories and failure stories and thought I would put this website to the test. Mostly, so you do not have to. But, they did offer a introduction video that sure makes this site seem promising.

So, let's see how it worked.

When you first sign up, it asks for basic information: what your name is, where you're from, an email address (since I didn't really know who all would get to see my information, I faked pretty much all of it. So if you try this site, I recommend you fake it too because I don't know who gets ahold of this information and also like that guy said... THE CIA MIGHT BE TRYING TO TAKE YOUR INFO!). But, then it asks for two pictures of yourself and then it asks you to start describing your face: what's your face shape, what's your eyebrow shape, do you have almond eyes or some other eye shape, what skin color are you, what kind of lips do you have, ect.

So once I finished filling all that out I was met with a list of my potential twins. And let me tell you... none of them looked like me. These are the two pictures I put on the site.

The type of people I got back in return had fire red hair, tiny noses, larger foreheads, smaller lips and so many other differences. Sure there were some features I had sort-of-kind-of similar (not really) with like maybe two people but none of these people looked like me. Maybe my seven people in the world aren't on this site or maybe it's a sham... (I'm leaning more towards the latter).

So in the end, I did not find anyone who liked like me, so, I deleted my account. I am still on the hunt for my seven döpplegangers. Do I think this site totally sucks? No, not really. I'm sure at least like two people who looked alike found each other on the site. Do I think it is a waste of time? Yes, most definitely. If you want to give it a shot, I would say go for it - but don't get your hopes up; you probably will not find your twin on it. The site is, happy hunting!

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
