Hi Toru. I checked that site and there are 146 people in the U.S. that have the same name as me. Wow! As a matter of fact, there was actually a guy with the same name as me at my old university - Penn State. We met once at a party. We were both drunk and it was a rather strange experience. He was a nice guy, though. In a funny way, it was kind of reassuring to find that out. He's a professor now at that same university. And still a nice guy, I'm sure. I just hope the other 144 Stephen Boyers are as nice as we are. Anyway, thanks for the interesting site. See you on November 1st.

Thanks for your comment Stephen. In my life, i met the person with the same name as me. He was a driver of a taxi i got on. Usually the nameplate was hunged down at the back of drivers' seat. When i see the nameplate, i was confused, and thought why my name was hunged down. And i noticed he has the name as mine. I was really surprised. but i could not confess to him i also have the same name as his.
Yeah i also hope he was a nice guy as me.
Anyway, see you on next class. I have not yet tried assigment...
