me me me


HowManyOfMe.com
LogoThere are:
507
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Ok, they don't actually know. They just know how many people, in the 1990 census, had my first name (994,396) and how many had my last name (152,984) and they assume (incorrectly) that names assort freely. But it's fun anyway!

I know there's at least one other person with my name in my metropolitan area - search for my Amazon wishlist, which you should do anyway, because you never know when you might want to buy me a present, like for example for my birthday, which is in a few weeks. You'll see that there is SOMEONE ELSE. A Doppelganger, perhaps. A fiend who bears my name, but with the middle initial "G" and a much stronger interest in sci-fi.

ha ha, it says I don't exist! There are 0 people with my last name, which is pretty rad.

283 of me. I'm lucky to have snapped up the gmail address, I suppose.

I thought your birthday was in late December. Why would I think that?

Not to recycle an old topic, but look what I just ran across on Youtube! These put my little line rider tracks to shame:

BTW I only have 41 imposters.

Zero of me as well. But I already knew that! It is kind of fun to think that I'm probably the only me that there will ever be.
