Small World.....

How is it that the world is so big yet so damn small? I know you are wondering what the hell I'm talking about, Fine let me explain. How is it that there are so many people in the world yet everybody seems to know the same people. Or better yet your information can be relayed back from a person you've never met in your entire life yet knows your entire life story? I'll tell you why the world isn't that damn big to begin with.

-John Belicino has sent you a friend request, You click mutual friends and your like how the hell do John Know Keisha, Thomas and Fred?
-Hey Jordan I would like for you to meet Sasha, Hi Sasha you look awfully familiar oh that's because we took business econ two years ago

Now those are just random situations but how is that in a world with some Billion plus people everybody seems to hang in the same crowds or share the same info. You would think that with that many people it would be hard to run into the same person twice or even have a friend of your be cool with someone from a totally different walk of life.

-What about when your in west bubble f*** and you see someone you know, like what the hell are you doing out here?

-My girlfriends best friend sister sister is also one of my followers, if that doesn't solidify that the world is small

-By far the strangest was going to a party and meeting a fellow blogger who recognized me and was like aren't you J.O fresh and I could only respond Yeah

-I won't even talk about the fact that mostly everybody in this big city has shared the same sexual partners

I just had to post this because I always wondered how can a place as big as America actually be as small as a peanut in terms of circles and encounters.

Its called The 8 Degrees Of Seperation (I think)

But trust me I can be shopping somewhere and with a family member or friend and someone comes up to me on some "Hey im Alicia's Cousin's baby Fathers Aunt" (Or some shit)

And Im Like OH SHIT, Your my cousin

Thats happened to me at work, when i went away for college, when i went on a cruise to the dominica republic.

everybody knows somebody who knows someone who knows you (Even if they dont know they know you) Lol

Weird Huh?

LET ME GIVE MYSELF SOME PROPS AND ANOUNCE THAT " I .. LYRIK INSPIRED THIS BLOG" LOL AHAHA !!! .. I'M NOT GOING 2 LIE .. THE WORLD IS 2 SMALL .. WHAT ARE THE ODDS THAT A DUDE WHOSE BLOG YOU READ DAILY ON THE INTERNET IS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH MY SISTERS BEST FRIEND .. LIKE THATS MAD WEIRD .. I CANT EVEN RECALL HOW MANY TIMES MY MOM HAS RAN INTO SOMEONE WHO KNEW SOMEONE THAT WAS FRIENDS WITH THE GUY WHO SHE USE TO DATE AND IT TURNS OUT HER BEST FRIEND USE 2 DATE HIM 2 .. ITS RIDICULOUS .. MAYBE 'CAUSE ALL BLACK PEOPLE THINK THE SAME .. THATS WHY WE END UP IN THE SAME CIRCLE OR IN THE SAME PREDICAMENT .. OR MAYBE BECAUSE ONCE WE THINK OF SOMETHING [LIKE MOVING TO A FOREIGN PLACE] AND WE THINK WE'RE THE FIRST TO THINK OF THIS .. SOMEONE YOU ALREADY KNOW HAS THOUGHT OF IT AND ACTED UPON IT LEAVING YOU LIKE WTF ?? .. THE WORLD INDEED IS BEYOND SMALL .. ALL THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHY DO WE END UP MEETING THE SAME PEOPLE TWICE OR KNOWING THE SAME PEOPLE .. LMFAOO @ THRU MY LENS .. BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR REAL FOR REAL ..

Luxe said...

Yeah it is a small world, I knew I wasn't the only person who did background checks on people so that I'd know exactly who I was dealing with & if they had anything to do with me!

Tuotierugif >^..^<© said...

"My girlfriends best friend sister sister" I had to laugh after I read that lol

I like this though cause it makes me feel like I will always have someone to turn to ;)

Teems said...

very true, Before you know it it will be 3 degrees of separation.

I have made friends with people from different states who's parents grew up with my parents and they would tell me you look just like this girl so and so's that I knew when I was a kid and I would be like because I am her/his daughter... lol

I have found connections on blogger as well. The social networking brings us even closer!
