    On our honeymoon, as we were entering a restaurant in Duluth, we encountered our church pastor from Robbinsdale. We're all 200 miles away from home, and run into each other. Tres bizarre.

    Anybody else have a similar story? Can involve the net, or not.

    About 8-10 years ago, I was on a Yahoo group, wearing my temperature gauge from wunderground. A guy asks me if I'm from the Grand Rapids area. No, but I was born there. So was he! Who's my family? So I email him, not wanting to give anything to the world at large.

    He was my uncle's best friend in high school.

    I was shooting pool with a guy in Amsterdam one afternoon about 9 years ago.I thought I'd seen him before. He said his name was Tom and he was travelling with his twin brother. I said is his name Mike ? He about fell out. I hadn't seen the guy since 5th grade.

    When my wife and I were driving from Yucca Valley CA to Waldorf Maryland in 2004 we made a little side trip to Branson MO. We got there about 11:30 at night and the only fast food place we saw open was a Taco Bell.

    We go in there and while we're waiting we strike up a convo with the lady behind us in line, turns out she is from Yucca Valley as well!

    Awesome stories, especially the 5th grade dude.

    A deja vu moment was when my sister and I went out for coffee, and she ran into a waitress she used to work with.

    Thirty years ago. The woman was waitressing over 30 years.

    Somebody just grabbed me on Facebook. We were best buddies in 8th grade, and I haven't seen her since 1972.

    I don't care what anybody says - I love Facebook.
