Ask The Eye Long Lost Twin Or Dead Ringer

July 14, 2014

Dear Eye View

I recently applied for a job as the assistant director at a well-regarded art gallery. In a pre-interview phone call with the director, she told me that my credentials were an excellent match with the position and set up an interview. The minute I walked in the gallery and introduced myself at the reception desk, I started getting weird vibes and worse. Employees, including the director, stepped back when they saw me, or gasped, or fled. I checked my appearance in the bathroom and found nothing amiss. Except for this, the interview itself went fine, from my perspective, but I didn’t get the job. I asked a friend at another gallery if she knew who did get it, and it turned out to be a guy fresh out of college. Because of the gap between his credentials and mine, I decided to write to the director and ask her if she could shed some light on the situation. Surprisingly, she said she’d meet me for coffee to discuss it. She told me that the person who previously held the job looked just like me, was a dead ringer for me, in fact, and in fact was dead. The other employees had pleaded with her not to hire me. I looked him up online and saw pictures that shocked me as well as my younger sister. From his obituary I learned he had died in a car accident three months ago, and he was my age. At first I thought I could make some sort of hiring complaint, but obviously I would never fit in there, to say the least. My concern now is that I think I had a twin. Should I bring this up with my mother? Or find some friends of the dead guy and ask them more about his history? As you can imagine, I’ve been in a real state for the past few weeks. Concerned


Dear Concerned

I understand you have been in a real state the last few weeks. Its time to get a grip.  Maybe you should find a friend of the dead guy to shed some light on your predicament. You may be more of  a dead ringer than you think. Hope this helps.





Meteorite Hits Russia Injuring 700, For The Love Of Harry

February 15, 2013

A hail of meteorite fragments landed in a vast swath of western Siberia Friday, causing injuries to more than 700 people, emergency officials in Russia said. The fragments came down after a boom felt in three regions of Russia and  neighboring Kazakhstan, the Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported. Russia’s national space agency, Roscosmos, confirmed that the strike involved  one large meteorite and not several smaller ones. A small asteroid, known as 2012 DA14, was expected to pass close to Earth  Friday, NASA reported on its website. It was not clear whether the meteorite  event in the Ural Mountains was related.

Meteroite framents strike Russia injuring only 700, for the love of Harry.

Asteroid Now Determined To No Longer Be A Threat To Mankind…. It Got A Little Harry

January 11, 2013

Upon further review, a big scary-sounding asteroid is no longer even a remote threat to smash into Earth in about 20 years, NASA says.

Astronomers got a much better look at the asteroid when it whizzed by Earth on Wednesday from a relative safe 9 million miles away. They recalculated the space rock’s trajectory and determined it wasn’t on a path to hit Earth on April 13, 2036 as once feared possible.

Asteroid no longer a threat to mankind. It got a little harry.
