about 30 years ago i got my tits out for a German TV series and I've been searching for myself in the show on the internet ever since I got it in the mid 90s. i've also been trying to find myself as a 14 year old school girl in an episode of nation wide with frank boff from around 1980. lots of stuff about my seedy past has washed up on google's shores over the years but not my German tits or my night with frank boff. well not yet anyway! :D

In fact just now, after I typed that, I had to search for my name to see if anyone was laughing at me for my obsessive searches. So far, no one is. This makes me want to be more revealing on BCB and not so closed in. What do you guys think of this? Wait a minute - time for a search.

No one's talking about me yet. I feel paranoid.


What a goofball.

I do it every so often just to make sure the ex isn't up to his old tricks. It's darn weird the stuff that it returns sometimes but thank god no nudie pics anymore.


Ooops just realised that you meant our names here, well forget that first part, I don't think I've ever done it here and no ex's here would have nudie pics,


that`s for sure,




that they would ever post,





because I would hunt them down







and seriously hurt them












and their dog.
















Maybe not the dog. I like animals!
















in a nice normal way, not in a wierd way.

Let us know when they do ;)




The last time I did a search for my name here it came up 'I hate Coan'.

Not the first time, either :evil:

I do like your avatar, John.

I'd be really impressed if you could name ten Haley songs without googling though.

We never talk about Haley, and he was rockin' years before Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley or anyone else.

That seems to be the consensus.

Nope, but it's helpful for trying to research what others like for Mix Club.

Seriously, Just when you think you barely know someone you find out you don't know them at all. :?

Considering the amount of folk that voted, "saddos" 11 compared to people that don't search, 12. As of 10:17am this morning.

And I'm the one who always has to win, eh? :lol: :lol:

Of the 25 votes cast so far, 19 either look their own name up rarely or never at all. That's over 66% where I come from - and some of those who did qualified it by saying they were admins (Martha, Prof etc) who needed to look if they'd been asked a question.

Not exactly all small minded vanity projects like your good self, is it?

As per usual you’re trying to change question again. It’s now up to 12 “saddos” compared to 13. You said nothing at the start about parameters or values connected to the voting.

It’s not about winning either, unless you’re really a bored Charlie sheen pretending to work in a post office. I think most people know what this was attempting to do.

As for the vanity thing, your vanity at always trying comically to be right outweighs everyone else’s attempts on here. Searching you name to see if someone is trying to make fun of you isn't vanity. Maybe if you stop mentioning me so much we wouldn't need to do this, balls in your court and you use the "victim" tag again on me hoping it sticks. Oh yeah just because you stick in your much over used laughing smilieS, doesn’t actually make your post funny.

However your complete lack of correct punctuation and failure to post a cogent thought does make you a twat.

Well no, a twat would be someone who struggles to come up with a proper comeback or answer and therefore panics and goes for grammar. All this while still fully understanding what the person…sorry….one as wrote despite the flaws in grammar.
