Double whammy

I've got a couple of my namesakes on facebonk too, I wonder why people are keen to find people with their own names? Are they hoping to find their double?

No one in the known universe (© Randy Jackson) has the same name as me, so I'll be saved this experience. Shame, I suppose.

I never got the whole 'you've got my name lets be friends' thing on facebook. What are you ever going to talk about? "Wow, we've got the same name." "Yeah, wow". "Coinsidence?" "Probably."

My friend's ex boyfriend kept trying to add his namesake on facebook, but he wasn't having any of it :-D

If he knew that I'm reading this Saramago book, he'd realise that the last thing I want to do is be friends with him. He's blatantly trying to steal my girlfriend.

Some girl in the US has made me her friend because we share the same first part of my surname, and it is an unusual surname. But now she's joining Pro-life groups and it's just embarrassing having her among my friends... Might have to ditch her!

Do Doppelgangers have to kill each other on meeting still, or has that rule been revoked?

I always thought you just die automatically if you meet your Doppelganger. Hence me pressing the "ignore" button.
