Strange Things You Learn on the Net About Yourself!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Enjoying some flickering trifle of "fame," I have learned some odd facts about myself--e.g., that I was Robert E. Petersen's son-in-law (I'd sure be filthy rich if that one had been true), also, that I am dead. However, I came across the oddest one yet today on one of the those websites where you can check up on people for criminal backgrounds, etc. Just for the merry hell of it, I entered my name. According to some information on this site, I am a 112-year-old woman still living in my old family home on Ardmore Avenue in LA! Wow, I really must be stuck in senile dementia: Here, I thought all along I was a man living in Long Beach. Wonder how that one came up?

Some years ago, I discovered that I am an African-American, former city councilman living in Oakland, CA. Since you and I met several years ago, Jan, you recognize how preposterous this is!

Well, I sure wouldn't have suspected you of "passing for white"!

I'm apparently a urologist from New Jersey, unless I'm a stand up comedian from Vancouver, BC.

Actually, I've been mistaken for the urologist from New Jersey since I was about 10 years old.

I've never searched using my name, but I'm told there are lots of pages about me. eh.gif

The first couple results for my name are Facebook pages of dopplegangers. The next couple are links to my dissertation and to some of my publications that have my actual name on them instead of initials. If I just do initials and last name, it's mostly my publications.

back in college, when I was about to graduate, the administration informed me that they aren't releasing my diploma because I didn't finish the military training course which was required by law here. turned out there is a guy with the same name that was supposed to graduate at that time too.

based on my google search, I am:
- an international level bowler
- a marine insurance underwriter
- the coo at spinelli coffe company
- a sales manager at kyocera
- owner of a shipping and logistics company
- a sales manager at 3M
- sales engineer at singapore air

good lord, everyone of me fits the stereotype!

Aside from race results and a few bios (A lot less, maybe they got purged), I got a dopplenamer's douchey twitter, a few dead guys, the fire department named the same as my family.

Also I'm apparently a university cheerleader. Or something.

There is a reference for my undergraduate thesis in Google books, but no ebook thankfully.

On reflection, I wonder if the "112-year-old woman" isn't some garbled version of my mother. However, my mother would be only 92 years old not 112 if she were still alive, which she isn't--she cashed in her chips in October of 1996.
