LOL I know it's a bit silly but I just couldn't resist the urge of my curiosity when my friend told me that he googled his name and was surprised of the results he got.. lol well, I did try searching my name on google, and was amazed how my first name was linked to some great businesses and even really succesful individuals like Seth Rogen..:P did this ever came to your mind? like googling your name out? how was it? did you get overwhelming results? or it was a boring thing you did? do share your thoughts..:P

I've done that before and there were lots of hits because I was a competitive athlete and it showed all my race results. Some as far back as 15 years ago.. pretty interesting.

Ohh yes my name is there but it's on wikimapia . My name is there on two of buildings which I constructed while I was working with my dad's construction company . Even my home and other buildings are there on the map and I was very amazed to see even my name there. Thanks for giving me the honor to feel little important. lol http://wikimapia.org/1982983/ (maa umiya palace) http://wikimapia.org/1984448/ (vaishali vihar)

I have done it before, ir was out of boredom mostly. There is nothing much attached to my name that I wasn't already aware of. For instance, a lot of the articles ai have written online are linked, as well as some other sites that I am a part of. It's actually funny to see that someone else has my exact same name, down to the suffix that I have. His middle initial is different, but everything else is the same. Creepy... lol

I have a pretty common name so when I do a search I get pages and pages. It's a great source of entertainment if you have nothing else to do and you might meet a few people with the same name...that's always interesting.

Well. i didn't so after reading this i went to search. i found a lot of companies name with similar names. After that i went to search my mylot username and found lots more interesting stuff. And i even found some game i used to play with the name WanderZ. Probably the best thing to do when you are bored with nothing to do...But don't take my word for it. :X
