    Well, what do you know; "Wirhe" returns only 6,240 results, of which only a few are actually sensible. Those that are, what a surprise, are tracks left by me on purpose (my site, forums, profiles). So yeah; my nick is pretty original. Except for those two fakes, one on Suomi24 (some troll) and the second one being some sort of a rock'n'roll junkie. :shake:

    Not surprisingly, I get about 495,000,000 entries found.

    I get 2 million hits for my real name. I'm sure one of the sites really DO refer to me, but there's a lot of them to dig through.

    If I use my nickname / university alias, then I get 4 hits, all of which are directly related to me and me only.

    When I looked for my real name:

    "Re: Adam needs a printer." Yes I do.
    "Adam needs as much help as possible!"
    "After all, Adam needs to eat his carrots."

    Alot of the other "Adam needs" involved children up for adoption, some because their parents didn't want their birth defects. :(

    Pfft...I just got random forum postings of which I wrote. So I tried my real name and I got these:
    • Aaron Needs a Tracheostomy
    • Aaron needs to learn how to count
    • Aaron needs to loose some weight ( :eek: I'm only 170LBS as it is!)
    • Aaron needs to understand that he is not “dumb.”
    • Aaron needs a miracle!
    • Aaron needs a job! (I have one!)
    • Aaron needs some oxycontin. (isn't that a nasty drug of some sort?)
    • Aaron needs to get his motor pulled so Phil can re-build it. (Actually, I need a re-built transmission)
    And for the best two, taken from the same website listed on google:
    • Aaron needs to trust his stuff and pound the strike zone. :love:
    • Aaron needs to get some new boxers. :eek:
    That made me laugh. :lol: :rolling:

    Only three results, all to SP. So I tried my first name (29,900,000 results) and the second link I found was to a post by someone named Jeff who had tried the same thing.

    • "Jeff NEEDS a shoe (not the special ones the doctor insisted he would be wearing for the rest of his life)"
    • "Jeff's support circle addresses his life-long needs"
    • "Jeff needs to come visit his friends in Texas soon"
    • "Jeff needs your help to bring the right priorities to Capitol Hill"
    • "Old Jeff needs your help again"
    • "Jeff needs a very solid, experienced family who can provide him with structure and day-to-day consistency"
    • "Jeff needs to survive, travel and to interact with the world"
    • "Jeff needs to get his game back on track"

    The dragonfly needs to pump fluid through the veins in its wings to uncrumple them.

    If there is a day that the dragonfly needs food, and is not sunny, then it may eat a dead fly or mosquito

    right "apathetic empath needs" (with the quotes) gets nothing; without the quotes only gets about 200 hits, the first and third are about someone ELSE by the nic of 'AE' chatting about or reviewing anime (or something, I'm completely unable to find any actual matches on the sites themselves...)

    The *second* hit is here on BoM "It needs more development .....profile for Apathetic Empath" :)

    The rest get even more fragmented - apathetic... needs... empath... etc.

    "empath needs" (my usual handle; I felt a little bummed out when I signed up here :) ) gets some interesting stuff:

    "Meshuggah - war = Empath needs new pants!" (from a devildriver.com gaming forum)

    "The biggest value of EMPATH's Needs Assessment project was...(burrocratic corporate b/s by some health-care denial organization :rolleyes: I feel dirty... )

    "One of the most important things an empath needs to be while in the field whether it be healing, hunting or just simply exploring, is "light". " (guide to 'field healing' in RPGs from an AoL'er's site)

    Dead link to stuff about an anti-cancer drug (Dog Whisperer Pet Empath Needs... 's removed blog)

    Apparently I share a nic with a 'hardcore dj' - "but Empath needs to return to nation and spin there again" :)

    And getting basically variants of the above (mostly referring to 'healer' classes in MMORPGs)

    as for my REAL name? Heh, I've already done that here

    Two murder victims (I may use that when the bill collectors start bugging me) some atheletes worthy of news articles, a tech industry VP, a Socio PhD, jump rope world champ, etc.etc. :)

    Hey, this was fun! :p
    Tried my name here and got (only) 2240 results:

    - Thor needs another lesson in humility
    - Thor needs to know how far west Greenwich is
    - Thor needs to gather 100 clams
    - Thor needs a human half
    - Thor needs to go to Asgard to have his jaw repaired
    - Thor needs his pies
    - Thor needs help, so he could summon his dad (now that would be fun :D )
    - Thor needs to get rid of hydro first (quite ironic, as i work in a company named Hydro :p )
    - Thor Needs Virgins
    - thor needs to be certain that the exact con-. cept, subject, case, or law, on
    which he/she. is writing has not been written about previously
    - thor needs highlighting (hey, i do! Highlight me!)


    Although i only use that name on the boards, normally i use Valtam. So i tried that one to and found:

    Nilch, nada and nothing :rolleyes:

    As for my own entire name, i actually got 4 results, one in a manchester guestbook, statistics page, an anime forum, (what the?) and local play thankyou list. which was neat, i've never seen that list.

    Besides the SP links only *one* page had the word Susipaisti. It was a Finnish thread about the weirdest kinds of food people had eaten, and the "susi" was just a joke derived from sushi.

    Nobody had actually eaten wolf steak, you see.
