Things You Found Out About Yourself Through Google
 
...or some other search engine.

I just found out that I got a letter-to-the-editor published in an Uncle Scrooge comic back in 1998 (when I was 14). :lol:

Let us know what you found out about yourself.

I found out that someone with my maiden name runs a very successful staffing/temp agency. Too bad it's not me.

I also discovered that anyone with a keyboard can, in mere seconds, find out exactly where I live.

I'm actually surprisingly hard to find information about through search engines. Part of this is because I share a name with a famous singer in Britain and all of those results drown out anything about me.

Not anything that was interesting. Although, I share a birthday and a similar name with a dead woman in Florida. She was born around 189? and died within the last decade. Weird.

I found out that someone whose middle and last names are the same as my first and last names was arrested for something in California last year, and his mugshot comes up when I google my name :rommie: Besides that, all I get are links to things like my facebook page.

About me? Nothing that I have found. There is one guy in Florida with the same name as me, but that's it.

My last name has an uncommon spelling so there are very few hits on it, none of them actually referring to me.

Some people have liked some of the stuff I've made.

I found out I was searching for information about myself on Google. I didn't find out why.

There is a pianist, an architect, a web site designer and a science fiction writer. None of these four are me.

I found out I don't exist. :shifty:



Okay, okay, I do turn up on LinkedIn. (Reminds me, I need to update that thing. Currently, I may as well not exist for all the results I'm not getting. :p )

i must share a name with some obese girl that whines about how obese she is.

i'm no where to be found on google, which is probably a good thing.

I don't exist.


But my nick and my avatar seem to be having a life of their own around the net...

I'm on there from Linkd'n and Facebook and a CFO directory but also I'm a professor in West Virginia.

I also clicked on images and the third picture is a gravestone. :eek:
