Have you seen this man?
  • I'm not sure I get it. This is news?
  • heehee, that gave me an idea.
  • I think #4 is Jake Gyllenhaal, tellurian...
  • #1 Macaulay Culkin #6 Stephen Seagal #8 a Baldwin #9 SNL alum Tim Meadows #11 William DeVane #12 Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite #13 Pedro pre-head shave Most of those "e-fit" things are FAR inferior to the freehand artist's sketches I've seen.
  • I think it was the cornrows myself. Curses dng, this is going to distract me for hours.
  • These bad men are scaring me.
  • Disguises
  • I'm just not feeling this thread...
  • brian peppers??
  • Now you know why I have no mirrors in, nor leave, my house, why I spend so much time online and never use a web cam. dng This is the most beautiful FPP I've seen. The wry ironic wit of the thing. Thank you.
  • They look like like poorly made mannequins. Mannequins creep me out.
  • This is probably an indelicate thought at best, but these e-fit pictures make everyone look like the lady who had the face transplant.
  • these e-fit pictures make everyone look like the lady who had the face transplant. I hope she has a good lawyer.
  • I got your Uncanny Valley right here.
  • When I suggested the PD start using Mr. Potatoheads for suspect composites, they laughed me out of the station. I still think they'd have been better off.
  • Exactly what I thought before I choked with laughter. ARREST MR. POTATO HEAD!
  • This man is related to Joan Collins?
  • Begbie?
  • "I don't think I've ever seen anyone who looks like that in Stalham or anywhere else in my life." Ditto.
  • (Excellent, dng! I just fucking love that guy.)
  • flashboy, that Uncanny Valley article was really cool. I've always known that things that were almost human were scarier than the strangest monsters, but this guy really explains it well.
  • I've always known that things that were almost human were scarier than the strangest monsters Oh, Lara! Just leave poor subhuman kitfisto out of this.
  • Why I oughta! *shakes fist* *secretly cries inside*
  • I think I may have once dated the guy in the original link, btw. kit, don't worry. quid's only trying to cover up the fact that he's one of them there parahumans.
  • Parahumans? Like a Siamese twin?
  • **puts on rubber gloves** **dries Kit's acid tears** **slaps him upside the head**
  • I suddenly feel encouraged to have another try with Sims Creator.
  • You know, I always secretly thought that most police sketch artists were the people who failed their art classes and switched to Criminal Justice majors instead. After seeing this E-Fit crap, I have a lot more respect for the poor sketch artists who use pencil and paper instead of this crap software. Even the awful sketch artists are better than this dreck. They at least make the nose look like it belongs on the face instead of a putty one that has been glued on as an afterthought.
  • Bottom left of the Google Images link - can you image the crime where they had to factor a microwave oven around the suspect's head to make identification easier?
  • Officer A: Look! Over there! That's our man! Let's move in! Officer B: Sorry, no, he's got a bread-making machine around his head, not a microwave oven. Officer A: OK, then how about him? (points) Officer B: Nope, laser printer. Officer A: Him? (points) Officer B: Hmmm, looks like a shortwave radio to me. Officer A: Damn. Let's go get some doughnuts. Officer B: All right then. I had bookmarked a great Flash-Identikit app ages ago but now it's redirecting to mtv.de for some odd reason.
  • I thought this guy looked like a Mr. Potatoheads version of Hitler, myself. The E-fit corporation is obviously a great way to part police departments with their money in a good useless way. I applaud any company that can scam money from stupid government agencies.
