    Me and the wife were watching My Strange Addiction on Discovery Fit and Health a few nights ago. One of the episodes featured a lady who sniff's gasoline all day long.

    During the show, my wife kept saying that the lady's boyfriend looked familiar, and the show was filmed in Williamsport PA. My wife used to date a guy who lived in Williamsport.

    Turns out, the guy on the show is my wife's ex-boyfriend's brother. She found and searched his Facebook page and found this pic:

    Standing next to him in the pic is the gas sniffer :lol 


    Told my wife that she missed her chance to get on tv :lol

    She


    Yeah, in the show, they mention she's been having memory loss and other health problems. Apparently, she's been doing it for 30 years

    Ohhh I get it now. I overlooked the sentence about it being the LADY'S boyfriend your wife knew! My bad, but the hope still remains the same for the proper treatment.

    So, I joined this board in late 2008. I was with my girlfriend for 9 or 10 months at the time. Naturally through deals and trades and such, I start meeting people from the board. Then we start ding our group meet-ups on a regular basis. My girlfriend never joined me for those.

    She did, however, come with me when Furious Styles invited me over to his house when his wife came back from the Philippines. And while we were there, JimmyNguyen41 comes over with his new girlfriend... and my girlfriend has known her since she was in high school, and she actually bought my girlfriend's Homecoming (I think) dress back then.

    And during a meet-up with locals at a Red Robin's restaurant, Bombatron brings his wife and kid. And my girlfriend and her grew up in the same neighborhood. They've known each other since they were kids.

    So myself, JimmyNguyen41, and Bombatron all met each other on the board. But my girlfriend's known their girlfriend/wife for much longer than we were even together.

    So that's my "small world" story.

    Mine's not very wholesome but I ran into a guy I went to school with from K-12 in a *ahem* "gentlemen's establishment" (read: brothel) in Nevada at like 3 am during my brother's bachelor party. Not the proudest place to be when someone recognizes you.

    My wife's half sister has a sister cousin. Same dad but the mothers are sisters.... And they aren't rednecks. It was 10 years apart.

    A bird feeder?

    I thought it was a rose.

    Okay well, I thought it was a bong at first, then looked closely and it looked more like a rose.

    So I go up an elevator in Taiwan, and when I step out (on the wrong floor) there's an older white dude standing there. He asks me if I'm there to visit his office, and I realize I have the wrong floor. He asks me where I'm from, so I of course say "Canada."
    "Me too," he says. "Where abooots in Canada?"
    "PEI".
    "Me too, where abouts on PEI?"
    "Murray Harbour"
    "Me too!" He says. He's quite surprised at this point as the town only has a few hundred people.

    But because I was just coming from living in China for a bunch of years, I was quite suspicious. There are 'foreign spies' that get visas and payment to report on other foreigners in China. I was once offered the gig.

    Anyway, he asks me my last name, and when I tell him, he says:
    "Me too."

    He knows my father personally, the exact house where I grew up and my parents still live. I used to stack hay in the barn next to the house he used to live in on PEI. So we decided to sit down and have a cup of coffee.

    Turns out he is actually a cousin somehow of my father's. Before this, we had no knowledge of each other whatsoever. By this time my suspicion had dissolved, and through our fateful meeting, and following meet ups for coffee and conversation, we learned of good stuff from each other. Turned out to be quite life-important. Good ol' Cousin Bob.

    Fate or coincidence? You decide.
