Passenger Seated On Plane Next To Stranger Who Looks Exactly Like Him

These two men are not brothers. Thursday evening on the flight from from London to Galway, 32-year-old Neil Douglas was surprised to find a man that looked exactly like him sitting in his seat. The doppelganger, 35-year-old Robert Stirling, had changed seats so that a couple could sit together.

“I asked him to move and when the guy looked up, I thought: “Holy s***, he looks like me” Douglas told Daily Mail. “I later checked into my hotel in Galway to find my doppelganger checking into the same hotel ahead of me…We ended up socialising and quite a few people pointed out that we looked very similar.”

When I lived in a neighboring state to my current one, many of my friends, at least 6 of us total, looked exactly alike. We had to start dying our hair different colors and cutting them different lengths for the sake of our parents. Sounds fake that that would happen, especially in such a large quantity, but it even freaked me out when I first met them.

They say that we, all, have a doppelgänger a somewhere in the world. And since we've all come from the same genetic tree, sooner or later the odds are increased that we'd run into the other. Right? That is if we travel a lot. Interesting. Also, I'd agree on the recommendation to look into the possibility of the DNA connection. Who knows? I like it. Would I know if I'd run into someone who look like me? I don't know.
