I guess this is kind of a pointless post. Sorry. It is amazing though, how small this world actually is.
For example, I was looking at Howzer's profile and he is Nathan Mantua. THE Nathan Mantua that I cited about 500 times for a paper I wrote last quarter dealing with the effects of the Pacific Decedal Oscillation on salmon runs in Alaska and Washington.
