How Many Of You...

are there?

Yesterday, Cap'n Buhne said something along the line of, "Names are not unique to individual people...". Well, except for mine. Ok, almost except for mine.

There's only two people in this country named Fred Mangels. I actually knew this before by doing a Yahoo search on my name. There's some guy back east involved in some mediation type group named Fred Mangels, too.

This site here confirmed the fact that I'm only one of two people with the same name in the U.S.A. See how many people share your name. Sorry if this makes you feel like another faceless member of the masses.

1,084 people with my name.

I don't mind being lost in a crowd though.

Hey, thanks for the diversion from strictly politics. It's refreshing every great once in a while.

Did Security National know these people don't live in Eureka, or not bother to confirm before printing?

Do these "Eurekans" know they don't live inside Eureka's city limits??

I learned recently through a minor mishap that there is another Eric Kirk who is a customer of North Valley Bank. No idea where he lives. Probably Redding.

One zillion of us Steve Lewises in the U.S. Three of us right here in Humboldt County. Why, you just can't take a step around here without running into one of me, I'm so lucky.

I was known in SoHum for fourteen years by a different name, one I took in good hippie fashion back in 1975 and then in my religious conversion experience at Easter of 1979 found out I had invited an angel into my mind who has subtly guided me every since. I get paid to keep quiet about this stuff, btw..

And only one aging hippie, writer of pulse-pounding op-eds, pschedelic artist and biomystic ambassador to the Nations.

If you really want a wake up jolt go to:

I find it hard to believe. It says there is one person in the US with my name.

Boy. That's a weird one. They actually have to of me listed, although one is on East Street in Eureka, as opposed to E Street.

When you click on my name, it takes you to a couple with the last name of Frederick. Apparently some strange way of advertising?

Apparently, zero people in the U.S. have my name.

I have just spent several frustrating hours trying to revise and improve the entry on "Scholars for 9/11 Truth", only to discover that my rewrites were being over-ridden by someone at Wikipedia. I find that offensive. The present entry has a warning label stating, "The neutrality of this article is disputed." From what I can discern from reviewing the "Talk Page", persons with scant or biased knowledge of the society appear to be determining the contents. So I agree with the warning but not for the reasons that may have motivated it. Here is what I tried to post in its place. One minute Video Clip
