    I suspect this has been posted before, but a quick search for the site's URL didn't turn up any hits. See if you can correctly identify which of the ten faces are those of computer programming language inventors, and which are those of serial killers...

    P.S. I got 9 out of 10 correct, but I admit that I guessed on a lot of them.

    P.P.S. My wife noted that after she scored such a low score on the quiz, it caused her to take a long look at me again. ;)

    I got 7/10. I guessed on all of them, except for this one guy, he had that "serial killer" look.:)

    Wonder if it's easier to recognize what the person is, if you're the same yourself.

    Might explain why so many of us are pretty good at recognizing it.

    Hmmmmm....

    This has been around for at least 5 years, probably longer. Not exactly news.

    6/10..

    You could take a grainy photo of anyone and say they're a serial killer.

    7/10, I tried going along the line of "the most innocent looking face is probably a serial killer" idea.
