Which is faster to California or by bus?

Just go up to the light and turn green, waldo.

Every once in awhile, I desire a banana split, but I never get one.

Whatever, guys, with the surrealist snarks. Yes, the post's text was a bit, uhm, odd, but that aging program is effin' cool.
(It seemed to do a better job with a picture that I'd never rotated - you can see more artifacts in a sideways picture, but the effect is stronger.)

The real question is,

Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four?

I just ran a pic of myself through that software.

I won't be able to go to sleep now.

Me, too, sourwookie . . . used a picture of my son, and each transformation was viscerally terrifying (variations on horrid porcelain dolls with sharp teeth and huge eyes and exaggerated features) yet I couldn't stop trying different ones.

As far as I can tell, the Elvis aging looks very little like him at all, and it looks like (if what is offered on their website is any indication) this is software of the morph two images type that was readily available and played out . . . 8+ years ago?

The square root of key-lime pie.

That must be the WORST age projection ever done.
We've all seen people get old, they look basically the same only OLD. That thing looks NOTHING like Elvis.

What I find most disturbing is this picture of Michael Jackson if he had never had plastic surgery.
I'm not sure if this is the same one I saw originally, but supposedly they used a young picture and then did the forensic aging program on it.

I'm having great fun transforming images of myself and others. Cheers for the link.

No way would Elvis have looked that good at 70...the poor guy looked much worse than that when he finally shuffled off this mortal coil.

So if Elvis has lived to age 70, he would have become Forrest Tucker?!

Looks to me like someone's been reading the Metro newspaper in London (rats article is online - the Elvis page doesn't seem to have made it onto the web yet). Only reason I can see for the odd juxtaposition (mcgraw from London?)

Elvis looks like The Duke???
