Subject: RE: BS: Six Degrees Of Separation
I saw this happening one night in an Irish pub here in San Diego. These two blokes are conversing, and one of them remarks the other sounds Irish, which he admits. The first one allows that he too is Irish and they warm up to the topic. Where in Ireland? Well, from Dublin, of course. No! Really? I'm from Dublin too!! Really?? Amazing!! Then they proceed to discover they are from the same neighborhood in Dublin. To their astonishment, as they narrow it down, it turns out they both were raised on the sme STREET!! And, as it turns out, they had both lived in the same house. Amazing!! They threw their arms around each other and staggered out, friends for ever.

I commented to the bartender it was a pretty wonderful coincidence that two men should discover such close links all the way across to San Diego from Dublin. Such serendipity!   "Aw, hell," he replied. "That's just the Murphy twins, drunk again."
