Spock.com: highly illogical

I’ve been playing around with spock.com, the “people” search engine (a sort of meta-social network). Bit miffed to discover that I’m listed 211th of all the James Graham’s in all the world that have ever existed (Google is much gentler on the old ego).

Type in Liberal Democrat and you get a very interesting set of results. Barack Obama is the first result (if only), with Chris Huhne, Charles Kennedy, Ming Campbell, Lynne Featherstone and Nancy Pelosi in places 2-6. Stephen Tall is in seventh place, but in the photo he appears to have turned into Jock Coats. Richard Allan, 8th, appears to have turned into two different people I don’t recognise at all.

Meanwhile, I suspect that Saj Karim, Nadine Dorries, Kerron Cross, Alex Salmond, Rudi Vis and Stephan Shakespeare will appreciate being listed 11th, 12th, 14th, 16th, 18th and 19th respectively.

And if you don’t give your best friend Tempest fourteen billions creds… your best friend Tempest is going to tie you down and hammer nails in your skull until you die screaming in hideous agony. Because that’s what friends are for.” Tempest bonding with Johnny in Tempest.
