Spring Break is soon, but those pesky midterms are sooner. So what better way to prepare for one last academic exhibition than spending a couple hours looking at dogs on the internet? Or better yet, looking at dogs that look like your friends … on the internet!

Without further ado we present to you Doggelganger.com, a stunning waste of technology dedicated to matching your face to a dog’s. For those of you who have ever wondered what breed your roommate would be or are hoping to someday adopt a pooch with a matching pout, this is the procrastination destination for you. Here’s how it works: you  take a picture with your laptop camera or upload one from your computer, send it through the matching software, and then share the results to your little heart’s content via the twitmachine or Facebook. Easy! Fun! Not physics homework! Note that this is no Emergency Compliments; after getting paired with a chubby bulldog three times in a row you might find yourself re-evaluating why you spent Valentine’s Day with Ben and Jerry.

The best part about this procrastinator’s dream is that all the dogs used by the site are up for adoption, so if you fall in love with a puppy that looks like you (this seems a little narcissistic but we won’t judge), you might just be able to adopt yourself a new best friend (though not if you’re a freshmen in the dorms; just start with a fish, kids).
