Mustache Fiend Lives!

Algorithm that draws a mustache on every face on the Internet

O how I wish there were a computer virus that, once unleashed, could go into html code, 'n' draw a mustache on every face on the internet. Or, failing that, a mustache on every lip. See reference video for further detail. Because, after all, we all have a mission in life.

       Not wibni, they are specifically describing adigital version on the web in the form of a virus, nothing about targetting billboards. Love this one+

       I researched facial recogniton and metrics around the turn of the milennium and you can probably just about work the position of an upper lip in a picture with a clear enough face. The relationship between nose and upper lip may be one of the metics used in some systems to reduce facial proportions into a mangeable set of numbers.   

       People use this kinds of techniques to create 3D avatars from film and pictures.   

       Find the upper lip, the proportions of the face and the angle that face is pointing in then you can probably add a moustache.   

       Why is another question, of course ...

       [+] the words "o how I wish" don't necessarily mean a WIB... okay they do, but the post isn't.

       I'm not in favour of it being a virus; I'm automatically against them. But as a fun browser add-on, yes, bring it on. By the way, HTML has no influence over hirsuteness or otherwise of image files, unless you want to propose a new tag.   

       <img src="example.jpg" hirsute=["moustache" | "beard" | "goatee" | "sideburns"]>   

       And maybe the options could be given parameters so that moustache=1 would be excess nose hair, and moustache=9 would be the full handlebar 'tache, and so on.

       Translation "I wish that someone would make a virus (no mechanism of implementation) that did X. It isn't anything more than a whim.

       Now if it was a virus that removed facial hair from every photo on the net, thennn you'd be onto something.   

       gonna change the demographics at porn sites a bit...

       Reminds me of something like bacolicio.us, but with a mustache. could be fun.
