What’s the likelihood of running into a pet that looks exactly like yours? Chumchum, a programmer, explains that finding a lookalike depends on the number of choices at the stylist. Let’s suppose there are 2 colors and 3 heads you can pick from. How many possibilities will you get? The answer: 2 x 3 = 6.
However, this is the reality at the Pet Society Stylist:
Color: 31 choices
31 x 20 x 22 x 37 x 22 x 24 x 36 x 20 = 191,859,148,800
Wow! Over 191 billion possibilities! This means it is very, very, very unlikely that you run into your clone. In fact, it’s more likely that you will win a lottery or marry Brad Pitt or be adopted by Angelina.
Still, it’s always fun to see pets that look like family. Here are some images sent in by readers.
And don’t forget, I’m now looking for spooky or funny Halloween pictures for a contest. Deadline is Oct 25.
