LiveJournal knows all...

Just had a small moment of internet awesome. jinty just wrote a friends-locked post about receiving a piece of mail addressed to someone else, slightly worried that it might evidence identity theft. Said post arrived in my mail program via RSS, I read it, and recognised the name: it's a guy who works on my project in the office next door. I popped next door and asked him some bafflingly specific questions, and yes, he lives on the same street at a similar number, and his girlfriend has just rented some DVDs. From mystery to solution in 13 minutes! I love the internet.

yes, and
what bafflingly specific questions did you actually ask him, I meant to say? Have you got a Blockbusters card, mayhap?

Re: yes, and
"Do you live on [your street]?"
and
"And you've rented some DVDs recently?"
I was tempted to follow those with "Just as I thought..." and then leave. However, I showed some mercy on the poor confused chap and explained why I was asking.
