Someone asked me about this last night, so I may as well introduce a TC discussion about it and see what answers come up: If you don't know me personally, how did you find this site?

I have a strange sort of story actually. I was watching a rerun of Roseanne and thought to myself "Whatever happened to Michael Fishman, the kid who plays DJ?" So I searched the name and he was a past goo. Decided to give it a shot and stuck around to play.

Aaron Fischer got me into the game initially. I just stuck around after that...

I think I was looking for a certain "Dead Pool" game, and came across this.

Anna linked to you a few times, and then I was invited to play WPS3.

I had just finished Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman and searched for it on tne net for further reading. Feynman happened to be the goo that week, and the rest, as they say, is history. Seems a lot of us happened through here purely based on web searches. One of my friends actually stumbled in by googling me, though she only stayed for a few weeks.

Thanks for answering, everybody. I figure most people who come to this site (about one new user a week) come here after searching for a celebrity. That's one of the advantages of having 305 celebrities, each with their own "page" on the site. The other common method is people searching for users' names. I've had several users, including Erik Bates and Andy Hubbartt, rediscover the site by searching for themselves online and discovering their name attached to an old goo that they guessed. That's one reason why I leave those names up (the main reason being that I'm a statistics nut).

The Mice Have Invaded New Territory

The mice have invaded my dreams. Early this morning, half-awake after hearing Kelly's alarm clock wake her up, I dreamed that I was lying in my bed just like I really was, but there was a plastic grocery bag in front of me. Go »
