I've mostly recovered from a recent illness, and I've working on a new post in line with what I've been discussing recently. I'm still a bit tired though. As such, rather than worry about technical discussions, I wanted to ask a question. John Cook is the proprietor of the Skeptical Science website. Here is a picture of him:
For the last few years, this picture has bugged me. Every time I saw a picture of Cook, I felt like I had seen it him somewhere before. Today, I finally realized why he seemed so familiar. It might be silly/crazy, but... doesn't he kind of look like Donny Osmond?
Donny Osmond is a sort of C-rank celebrity I wouldn't expect most people to remember. I only made this connection recently while watching the music video for the Weird Al song White and Nerdy:
Which has Donny Osmond doing some intentionally "white" dancing that's both stupid and hilarious at the same time. I happened to watch the music video again today, and as soon as I saw Osmond pop up in it, I realized, that's what my mind was remembering every time I saw a picture of John Cook.
So am I crazy? Do these two look nothing alike? It the similarity I perceive just a figment of my fevered imagination? I'd really like to know if this is just in my head.
