Apparently, just about everyone Dean Esmay knows or is related to hooked up over the Internet. What are the odds of that?

  1. The odds are high when you’re a geek. Dean=geek.
    Actually, Dean knows a lot of people and only a handful met that way.

    My meeting Dean was accidental. I was just learning how to navigate the internet when I came across his post/ad. I’m still not sure why I wrote to him. I think it was because my brother met his girlfriend(now wife) that way.
    Total fluke.
