Truth is Stranger Than Fiction. Period.


HowManyOfMe.com
LogoThere are:
8
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

So what are the chances that I would care for a patient with the same first and last name as me?

Because I DID. About 4 years ago, I was pulled to the antepartum unit for a four-hour stint, and one of the patients in my assignment was... me! Well, same name anyway. Slightly different age, way different skin color. Huh. I wonder what the statistical probability of that happening would be.

This site says that there are ZERO people with my name. They've never heard of Palwick. (There are lots of Susans, of course.)

Wos. Does this mean I don't really exist?

The probability thing is kind of hit and miss

A dear friend of mine is Jr. He and his father both live in the US, and yet, it shows as 0 for his name too

Funny thing, his name, in Canada would be as common as John Smith!

I know for sure there is no one with my name. I think my husband's family is the only one in the USA!

btw, funny eye pic-- thought you hated eyes? LOL. I helped dissect a cow's eye today. blech.

Yeah, I figured the name thing was a little off... just found it funny.

I know, the eye thing. Don't mind looking at them, just can't stand the thought of TOUCHING them!

LOL.
