so two things: all of the names are common ones. and there are ten digits, so they occasionally match up.

mentioning these similarities makes it seem like there were a ton of crazy coincidences, but remember you're only mentioning the ones that sync up. i mean you're taking anything that syncs up in these guy's entire life. of course you're going to find something if you look long enough.
