  1. This is funny!...
    Furiously Funky send me a PM:

    I didnt know there were any more nova scotians around these parts
    marty goodlad

    I replied:

    AHHHHH!...I'm from the valley too!
    I live in the kingston greenwood area. where exactly are you?

    He then replied:

    who the heck are you i live on bridge st!!!!!
    kingston by foodland (a local food store if you haven't already guessed:) )

    I then replied:

    OMG!!!!!!...I live on hillcrest AVE right by
    you!!!!!!....AHHHHHH!...this is wierd...

    he then replied:

    i live right across the street at XXXX
    bridge!! i bet i can see your house!

    which is true, I can almost see his house, when I'm in the middle of the road looking down it.

    we haven't picked a time to meet, but we are planning it, and maybe my dad, who isn't on this board, he's not very computer litterate...

    sorry for the long post, but I found this almost unbelievable!

    I live about 10 minutes from TBer Brad Barker, and usually ate lunch with him in HS.

    Also used to live about 15-20 minutes from TBer 4Mal when I was in WA.

    When I move, I'll be in the same town as TBer Jerry J, and in the area of the Portland Or. TBers.

    World is small, and getting smaller...

    No one will admit living close to me, or even that I have been to their house.

    I live about ten minutes away from volumefiend. I drive though his town everytime I need to get on the freeway. It really can be a small world.

    I live about 20 mins away from Brad Johnson. He's the closese that I know of. A few others live in MD... Osama Speares, and Fuzz Bass are the only other ones who come to mind at the moment.

    this was really funny!
    what’s funnier is Nova Scotia has less than one million people (maybe just around 1 million) and the place where we live would have to be like 5k tops. maybe 10 if you count the place right next door (greenwood as said in 74's post) so the odds are just silly! we should have bought lotto tickets

    i think we have a different Foodland than you maybe a coincidence? I used to work there, and i never heard of the Australian branches;)
     
  16. You mean you TB'ers are actually real humans? How rare!
     
  17. hmm, I think I'm the only *active* TB'er fae Glasgae... :)

    Hey man, I was just pickin' on you. It's not that big of a deal, well I guess it depends on how the person feels about it. It's just a good idea to check. Some people don't even want to have their real names posted on the net!
