A lot of dating sites, and irritating people, ask you who you look like, usually intending someone famous. Now you can give those people a definite, if perhaps unconvincing, answer with the site My Heritage. Give them a picture and they'll tell you who you look like; but it seems to be pretty dependent on what expression you're wearing in your photo, as I got different answers with a couple of different ones. But now I can at least honestly say that I've been told I look like Tony Curtis and Christian Slater. Whether that's a good thing or not, I'm not sure...

A large number of the Americans I know, and (apparently following them) some other international students, end most of their e-mails with "cheers" before signing their name. I've never heard it used as meaning anything other than 'thanks' or (something like) 'drink up', before coming here. I don't really see how it could have any meaning outside of those usages, and particularly not in this context. So if anyone reading this does use it like this, could you perhaps explain when you started doing it, and why/what it means?
