Table of Common Interests: Starting a new LJ fad

Q: What do ghosts drive?
Ok, here's the latest trend: The table of common interests.

Trying to find out why people add me to their friends list I examined my "Friend Of" list (I didn't use my "Friends" list, I know why I marked them friends). Below is a table indicating the interests I have in common with the individuals listed. Note the number of people who have put me in their friends list though we have no (stated) interests in common. The phenomenon interests me. Mostly those with zeros marked me in response to my joining a group such as no_pity. Others are simply a mystery.

</p> Also interesting to me is that given the individual in question I can not recall many (in most cases not any) instances of discussing a common interest with that person.

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
