I know i never disappeared because I was dropped on my head at 19 days old. still got the records and photos of my pregnant mother. while its technically possible my parents kidnapped me in that limited time period, after losing a child with out my siblings or relatives knowing... but it seems pretty unlikely

The joke thought experiment also works for "the douchiest thing you will ever do to someone". So, no; wherever you are isn't necessarily great news to those around you.

Dude. I know its dark. But I relate to the ludvig story. My brother passed away over the summer and we were so much alike that people thought it was me since he'd dropped out of school and barely socialized. But I never talked to anyone over the summer and when I came back a bunch of people freaked the hell out and thought they were seeing stuff. One of my friends who had liked me for a while even thought she was going nuts.
