Site of the Month

I will just get my Site of the Month on the books and off the table right now.

There is no use in delaying it or holding off in case I don't have something "better".

Clearly "better" is all relative.

I'm going on record by saying: this month is a bad site. It's just bad.

Oh, the site is:  How-Old Do I Look?

Nothing good can come of this, right?

I could be harbouring grudges against it of course. I mean, one hopes for the best. Actually, you hope for better than best. You want the site to say you look 32 (unless you're 24). At worst, you want them to pin point your age.

And then there is the reality of it all.  So I picked an image of me at random. And then another, when I didn't like that result. And another. And another and another.

I felt is spiraling out of control. My control, at least.

I was 50. 

I was still 50. 

Yes, STILL 50. 

Even at 3 it How Old Do I Look doubled my age.  FML. 

I had to do the math, but with this one I'm 44 or 45.  So, I'll give them this one. I suppose the earbuds make me look "young".  

Still 1 out of 5 are not good odds for whatever schematics they are using in their process. It needs to go back to the drawing board. I get better results from the midway at any amusement park - not that I would ever actually pay for someone to guess my age, let alone my weight. 

(note to self:  develop 'How Much Do I Weigh' site )!!!!

Until this last year, I've never felt (or thought) I looked my age. I'm not saying I was thinking I was passing as young(er) or anything, but I never thought I looked 13 years older than my actual age.

I'd might say I didn't think I looked 5 years older than my age, but why push my luck when you folks have access to comments.

CAUTION: Use this site at your own risk. Side effects may include: nausea, insomnia, headaches, macular degeneration, diarrhea, erectile dysfunction, and of course, depression.

The LAST thing I need is some APP telling me I'm old ... or look old ... or ... who needs this stuff?

We were playing with that site yesterday. I rather liked it's result. A fresh photo was snapped and it came back at 44! Woohoo! No need to try again as I dropped 7 years! I'll stick with that.
