So… We’ve all Googled ourselves, right? C’mon… Admit it.
I know I have. I found a bunch of stuff – some interesting, some not. I even found another Devin Henkel. If you look at the bottom of page 1, that’s not me grounding out to shortstop. Funny thing is, the only other Devin Henkel in the world appears to live in the same state as I do.
We’ve also Googled people from our past, right? A few to many glasses of hooch and wondering, “Whatever happened to (insert name here)…” You can find out an awful lot about an awful lot of people using Google or sites like Pipl. However, I’ve been trying to dig up info on my best friend from Junior High, Tony Ho. Now, you’ll notice if you follow that link, that Tony Hos are not as rare as Devin Henkels. Even the fact that I know he went to medical school narrows the field much. There are quite a few Dr. Hos in this world.
So, what I’m going to do is test out reverse Googling I’m going to write a paragraph and see if I can’t unearth the real Tony Ho. I guess my assumption is that Tony is curious (or vain, like me) enough to see what the internet is saying about him. The following paragraph is the bait:
If you are Tony Ho who lived in Palatine, IL and then moved to California during high school, Devin Henkel is wondering how things are going. I remember your brother, Fred, and your sister, Karen(?). You came back to Illinois to attend Northwestern and got your pre-med degree there. I’m not sure where you went to medical school. You lived over by Donut Lake and we were convinced there was a UFO at the bottom of the lake. We were going to start a science agency and used to draw pictures of rockets. At Palatine High, we used to eat lunch with Anne, Karen, and Parith.
That’s enough for a test. The information is specific enough without violating anyone’s privacy. Let’s see if you can’t find this, Tony. If you do, sorry my cat ate your praying mantis… Hope you are doing well.
