Hey - do you look like Charlie Sheen?

Click here for hot Star Estimator action

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Has your mum ever noted your passing resemblance to Charlie Sheen? Did an ex-girlfirend once compare you to Hugh Grant - and not because she was bailing you from an LA jail where you'd just spent the night on a kerb-crawling rap?

Well, we've just been informed of a simple and fun way to discover whether you really do have what it takes to weaken knees and moisten gussets - the MyPlayCity Star Estimator. Read on:

Star Estimator service helps you to find the matching between you and Super Celebrities. What if you have a Star Twin?

Just send your photo and the Star Estimator will show Celebrities portraits similar to yours. The service stores about 400 photos of famous people, and the database is growing up continuously.

This service intends for the automatic comparison between your facial portrait and the photos of famous actors, models, sport personals, etc. By submitting the photo of your face, you enable the opportunity to estimate what is your other appearance and find out that you are the twin with Star Starring.

The comparison is performed by the unique computer algorithm based on recognizing artificial neural network models, which resembles the human brain now realized in the computer environment. Therefore the estimation is absolutely independent, and it is not affected by someone's decision.

Well, do you look like Charlie Sheen?

Yeah right. As someone in the office nicely put it: "Unique computer algorithm my f***ing arse." And as for the stable of talent, well, 400 faces is hardly enough to satisfy a pre-Oscars red carpet paparazzi feeding frenzy. It's 399 more celebs than are currently appearing in Celebrity Big Brother, granted, but really...

On the other hand, it's all harmless fun (we think) and there's the possibility of interaction with another of MyPlayCity's free games - Barman's Life:

Serve with beer the clients of the bar as fast as possible to avoid a queue. Each client has a drink of his or her own color. It will turn out badly if you serve a wrong drink. As the queue gets longer, the clients become angry so that they can even punish you.

Yup, once you've discovered - as this correspondent just did - that he bears an uncanny resemblence to Russell Crowe, you can nip down to the virtual bar and, when you don't get served immediately, club the hapless barman with a mobile phone while shouting "Don't you know who I am?" ®
