I Am No Stranger to the Game

August 4th, 2005

Sean has an interesting reference in his blog to something called “Googlism,” a page which accesses Google’s database to show what sentences are associated with your name. Enter your name into the search box, and a list of “(your-name) is…” strings are produced. It can be quite hilarious. Here is a list of many of the results that came in for my name, with some of the incomplete and more bizarre ones weeded out:

  • luis is old and famous
  • luis is my cousin
  • luis is a real wanted man
  • luis is removing parts from one of our mills in preparation to add parts that he has already setup in a holding jig for the next operation [I get that a lot]

  • luis is working over/weathering his motorcycle for a diorama
  • luis is moving across the caribbean’s northern leeward islands
  • luis is the owner of two pangas that he uses for two different types of fishing
  • luis is a social butterfly at heart
  • luis is a unique destination in the northern ecuadorian andes

Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that one!

You really have to try this out. Put your name in there, and the most unbelievable stuff will come out, stuff you could never dream up, stuff which will make that tuna fish sandwich you’re eating come out your nose.

    Someone on my LJ friend’s list pointed it out to me. I tried to limit myself to 10, and boy was that difficult. No tuna fish came out my nose (EW), but I did have at least one tear roll down my cheek from laughter.

    “* luis is al goed ge´ntegreerd

    Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that one!”

    Well heck, everytime I think of your blog, that is the absolute first thing that comes to mind!
