Yes you have.

If you say so.

And yet, more than once I have seen an actual, current friend of mine out of context--like they're a parent at my kids' school, and I see them at the grocery store without their kids--and I can't for the life of me figure out how I know them.

That's understandable. The studies I've heard about say that despite the hundreds; or, even thousands of contacts you may have IRL and over social media, humans can process a maximum of only about 150 relationships at a time. People are constantly moving in and out of that group.

Dunbar's number and it turns out to be wildly important to how we get along and stuff

It's also the limit of Cellar members we can truly trust

The unspoken inner circle of which I have now spoken meaning it is no longer unspoken

I'm glad I have a driver's licence to refer to when I can't remember my own name. Either that or wait ten minutes when it pops up while trying to remember something else.

A couple years ago I had a guy walk up to me at a car show and I had no clue. I had given him (charged $1) a '67 Chevy Impala SS convertible a year before that. He was black and I don't interface with that many black guys, and it wasn't like I couldn't remember his name, no connection at all.
Don't lend me money. :headshake

Is the pic Larry David?

Clodfobble 01-19-2020 01:09 PM

Yes it is!!

Gravdigr 01-20-2020 11:16 AM

I put glasses on him, and a bald-ish head, and there he was.

I never was a big fan of this guy, I found him just 'ok'.

Now I find him unrecognizable. Unless you saw the same article I did a few days ago, you might, too.

Who is this?

xoxoxoBruce 05-16-2020 10:27 PM

Reminds me of Drew Carey
