Man Meets His Doppelganger Onboard a Plane

What would you feel seeing a complete stranger who looks just like you? Would you freak out or take a selfie together?

Have you ever thought of the uncanny possibility of meeting your doppelganger in real life? Or by some twist of fate, discovering a person who looks exactly just like you, but you are not twins separated at birth nor even distantly related?

Well that is exactly what happened to Neil Douglas and Robert Stirling, two complete strangers who met by chance on a Ryanair flight bound for Galway, Ireland.

It all started when 32-year old Douglas asked the stranger on the seat if he could move so he could take his assigned seat, and when the 35-year old Stirling looked up, both men were shocked by what they saw. Douglas uttered “Holy shit, he looks like me” and the passengers around them couldn’t agree more. From their ginger hair and beard, smile, and yes even the matching black coats, the two looked so alike it’s hard to believe they’re not twins. Eventually, the look-alikes obliged to having their selfies together on the plane.

Two peas of the same pod? Background checks revealed the two are indeed unrelated, but they look so eerily alike!

It is even more fascinating to know that the chance meeting of the two men only resulted due to Stirling swapping seats with another passenger to let the couple sit together. And it gets even more like a twist in a movie plot, when both Douglas and Stirling learned they will be staying in the same Irish hotel in Galway. The duo hit it off… as friends of course as can be seen by this pic showing the two having a good time.

Seeing double? The "twins" even drinking the same beer!

Background checks revealed that the two are not victims of your usual tv series plot twists of twins separated at birth. First their ages are not the same, so is their height. They have very different backgrounds too, with Douglas being a wedding photographer from Glasgow, UK; and Stirling a civil servant from Redbridge. When asked what he thought of the very fortunate situation, Stirling said “It’s just funny really – it must be a ginger beard thing,”

The power of being a gingerhead it is. Would you want to meet your doppelganger too?

As a sci-fi buff, I particularly enjoy movies about man vs. artificial intelligence – especially when it’s well-executed. Whether it is in the form of a robot or a computer screen, it’s fascinating and sometimes quite scary to consider how artificial intelligence works and thinks.

Some of the good films that pop to mind are I, Robot, The Matrix (with its immortal line “Never send a human to do a machine’s job”), The Terminator, RoboCop, Blade Runner, and of course, classics such as Star Wars and Star Trek. Among the most recent ones I loved include superhero blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron and Pixar’s hopeful and adorable Wall-E.

But how do artificial intelligence bots interact with each other in real life? Well, we can get an idea by watching the video below.

The jails in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil are quite possibly the worst in the world. Besides, gangs rule in these overcrowded prisons and it’s also place where killings happen, drugs are sold, and prisoners even have their own keys. Learning about what happens within the prison walls will really motivate you to remain a law-abiding citizen. You definitely wouldn’t want to be stuck in these places.

Recent investigations have discovered that a lot of illegal activities are indeed happening within these prisons. In an blog entitled "The State Let Evil Take Over" by the Human Rights Watch, the details are provided.

Located in the northeast region of Brazil, Pernambuco has the reputation for having the worst prisons.

15 Things You Say That Prove Toddlers And Drunk People Are Exactly The Same

This is too funny not to share!

Perhaps no other thing in the world is as cute as a toddler. With their penchant of saying and doing funny, adorable things, these tiny kids can pretty much melt your stress away if you spend a good time talking and hanging out with them.

There’s no denying, however, that parenting one takes work. A lot of work, as a matter of fact. Just ask any father or mother and you’d instantly get an idea what I mean.

Cute as they are, toddlers are also little irritable creatures. They do what they want to do and say what they want to say without regard of what others will think of them. They’d loudly talk about their poop in public or something. Much like your drunk friend.
