Someone told me about this site called http://jacksonbullock.com/index.html and they found it to be offensive to Sandrah Bullock, as it claims she looks like Michael Jackson.

I personally think it's sorta funny, but it's really quite stupid.

I don't thiink they look anything alike.

Sandra Bullock should find it offensive.

It's just dumb. There's no similarity whatsoever.

Being offended on behalf of somebody else is almost always a waste of time and effort.

Hmm. Never thought of it before, but there is a certain similarity there. I don't see what's offensive about that.

I was mainly joking. Although, if someone said I looked like Michael Jackson, I would at least be concerned.

I imagine if you took everyone in the world and lined em up you could eventually come across somebody who looks VERY similar to you.

I bet you could find an almost identical likeness if you took everyone who has ever lived on earth

It's kinda interesting because they found pictures where their makeup matches. And looking at it, the facial structure is obviously way different but the nose, eyebrows, and lips are very similar.

So is being offended on behalf of yourself, for that matter.

That equals 1,300. (I added the commas for clarity.)

In my head your answer made sense but Windows Calculator said otherwise (Twice!) I just tried it again and it now says your answer.

I am going crazy, and I don't even know how it happened.

Windows Calculator also use to say that 2.0001 - 1 = 1.000099999875.

Forgive me if I don't trust it much.

Being offended by yourself, on the other hand, makes for an interesting story.

All of this is far too offensive, especially the comment "So is being offended on behalf of yourself, for that matter."
