    It's a scary thought, but I think we're reaching that kind of calculation via things like facial recognition software. It also shows the potential for mistaken identities implicated in crimes using said software.

    I read recently that even finger prints may not be unique.

    Here is a link to a story there are tons. https://nypost.com/2019/11/19/120-ye...racy-theories/

    Excerpt:

    Well, she’s impressive, but she’s not that impressive.

    Conspiracy theorists are at it again over a 120-year-old photo depicting a girl who bears an uncanny resemblance to teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg.

    The photo, unearthed from archives at the University of Washington, shows three children working at a gold mine in Canada, including a girl wearing Thunberg’s signature braid and stoic expression.

    Historians believe it was taken around 1898.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    I don't know as much about fingerprints, but I believe there is more room for variation in those than faces. Logically, there has to be an upper limit, however.

    When I was a kid, there was a guy who worked in the store where my father got his tires who was the spitting image of Paul Newman, blue eyes and all.

    When I was stationed in Hawaii, a new guy checked into the command and I ran into him a couple of days later, and we just stood and stared at one another for a minute. It was like looking in a mirror. What was especially weird is that we were both former aircrew, so we both had the gold wings and several rows of ribbons, we were both E-6, and between that and the facial resemblance and having similar physiques he had spent the previous couple of days having people call him by my name; of course when he saw me he understood why.

    When I was a kid, Ben Savage (of Boy Meets World) was my doppleganger. From elementary school through high school, everyone called me Cory Matthews, lol. Can’t see it now that we’re both older but it was uncanny when we were young kids.
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States
