It’s Been a Funny Day

Things that are weird about the internet: Other people using your screen name.

I just did a Google search and discovered that there are at least two other people, and potentially many more than that, using the name “El Minko”. One is an internet troll with poor spelling and grammar, the resident of an obscure MMORPG message board. The other is a fellow livejournal user, though they went with another name for their blog.

Details on a third, including whether they truly exist, are vague at best. The name does seem to be associated with a Spanish porn star.

I really don’t think I can describe how awkward that is.

In the future, when our brains are hardwired directly into the internet to create a terrifying hive-mind, a central registry system will be created to manage usernames and avoid duplicates. When this happens, I hope to scoop the “El Minko” name before the troll or the porn star does.

Pro-Tip: University means doing and thinking strange things in your spare time.
