    You guys aren't gonna believe this... It's too much of a coincidence.

    My nickname is Sparkie, and I run Pawsitronic.com. While randomly playing with a domain name generator, I decided to input PawSpark.com. It was taken, but guess who the Administrator is..

    http://www.betterwhois.com/bwhois.cg...n=pawspark.com

    I know its a different person.. but STRANGE.

    (Thank you mkaufman for informing me about this odd tidbit of info!)

    It's a different person..that registrars name actually is "Luke Wayne" and ours is "Wayne Luke"..plus he lives in a different location (do you think our Wayne would have the address cactuscorner.com! hmm)

    But figure the odds..how everything is so connected..its just too weird.

    Huh. Strange. I find most things like that are just a coincidence.

    The power of coincidence:
    TV hucksters like Uri Geller rely on the power of coincidence for many scams. If he's got some broadcast going with an audience in the UK of, let's say 7.5 million, and says 'I want you all to think about stopping time', the odds are that some people will find that their clock stopped/ fell off the wall/wristwatch packed in/video clock went on the blink etc. etc. If ten people (out of 7.5 million) ring up saying that kind of thing, he can then blather on about how this proves esp and telekinesis does exist. All because of a few gullible chumps.
    Still, the coincidence is striking in this case. It must have been a real 'scratch head in bemusement' moment. I like the Kennedy/Lincoln thread, too.

    It's not wise to see connections everywhere. Some people get paranoid after a while.

    Maybe you're the next victim, Sparkie

    Wow, what a small world! That's actually pretty cool. Maybe it is actually Wayne's domain and he switched his first name and last name to throw people off! Hah, I knew it...
