    The Google Game

    Google your "real" name and post the number 1 google image result - and if the image is tied to you in any way.


    Number one image result when I google myself.

    (connection - bought this off ebay - was too small, traded this frame for my correct frame size of the same year frame)




    EDIT: Since starting this thread, this thread is google's number 6th result when I google myself. Why am I not surprised?

    As i filter through all the images it pulls for me from Google+ the first non-Google plus is an photo of a project I did with my previous employer that is somehow linked to me. Not sure where I fit in or how it figured it out. I have never seen the completed building.



    Edit: Found it, I am listed as part of the Architectural Support Team. Amazing, if I hadn't searched for it I would never have even thought to see if it was completed.

    By the second page of images I start into the bikes and more pictures of my kids. Obviously google culls from facebook and flickr.

    This came up:



    It's a snapshot from my band's studio video (I'm on drums):

    <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/36214919?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href="https://vimeo.com/36214919">Taking Flight: The Recording of Snow Owl</a> from <a href="https://vimeo.com/user2303736">Pete Burant</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>
    I can barely get my mouth around it.

    Group/social ride I did last summer with my local Basque Cultural Center. I wanted to do the ride again this summer, but I'm still in school for the planned date.

    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    No images related to me (I have a very common name).

    Here's the first image that came up, though...

    P.S. That's not me...

    Are you sure you're not his stylist or something? There seems to be something distinctly marpilli about him. Perhaps I'm suffering from expectation bias.

    The images were a collage of mug shots, none of them me oddly enough, but this was in the first row...

    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Ha, "marpilli" does have a kind of South Africian'esque ring to it...

    That club has been defunct for a while as no one in the area seems to have time for a club. I was website/newsletter officer during its latter years in the early aughts.

    Sooo, I share my name with, as BBC puts it, a Serial Sex Beast. Sounds like a compliment.

    I can see this person of the same name foreshadowing what my life will be like .

    Here's the first picture:

    And here's a much better picture. Diggin' the mohawk:

    There's another ME in Bend, Oregon

    He looks cooler than me too!

    Otherwise, I'm pretty much a ghost. This is why I don't have a Facebook
