Is he in the habit of pulling a big ass sword out of nowhere and yell, "There can be only ONE!!!"?

There are enough people in the world that there are people who closely resemble others. It really isn't all that suprising.

Not surprising at all.

Given that there are more planets and stars in the universe than there are people who ever lived on earth, is it a fair conclusion to make that there is life outside of earth?

There are an estimated 6 sextillion (6x10^21) planets in the visible universe, and a low estimate of 100 billion in our galaxy alone.

I get told all the time that people know someone else that could pass for my twin sister. I must have a lot of twins out there.

Hmmm, looks like Professor Arturo got his portrait painted in one slide and met this kid's mom in another.

People who look alike are not all that uncommon. Many years ago the Bertillon method of criminal identification was used (before fingerprint identification, lat 19th, early 20th century). Photos were taken of arrested individuals and I am aware of one case where an innocent man was incarcerated because the person looked just like the man who committed the crime.

I like how apparently people on Reddit are willing to make him the outfit in the painting so they really can match.

I walked into a church in Peru that had a poster on the wall depicting Jesus pulling Peter out of the water.

The image of Peter looked JUST like me, to the degree of being uncanny. It was quite the talk. I need to find some pictures.
