A Facebook App that searches for long shot connections - I
was just going through facebook and clicking on "mutual
friends" and every once in a while there's a real surprise, like,
"you know _____???? what a co-inkydink". So this would be an
app that found the real long shot connections and
every once in a while and said, "did you know that ______
knows _____? What a co-inkydink!"

||coincidence is coinkydink so incidence is inkydink
||My Mamy always said, "Co-inkydink is as co-inkydink does."
||Think you are possibly getting confused between my Mamy and Jimmy Durante He always used to say"Co- hinky-dinky-di Co-hinky-dinky-do." There may be a co-inkylink there somewhere.
||Like it. Here's a goodun: I met a German astro-physicist
in Florianopolis, Brazil, a few years ago. We were both
backpacking and got on well so exchanged details in
case we bumped into each other on the trail. Got a
message from him a few months later, saying he knew
one of my housemates. 3 or 4 years prior, he'd spent a
week with a group of about 6 people in the jungle in
Thailand, one of whom was my mate Date.
||Sometimes it's the next person in line who's the prefect match, like the third wheel which becomes your main form of transportation.
||//That's not a bad one...//
Wow! That qualifies for the co-inkydink long shot Face Book Of Records.
||I am seeking these books on the subject,
How To Win Co-inkydinks And Co-Inkydink People.
The Thirty Nine Co-inkydinks(fiction).
The Co-inkydinks Anonymous Handbook.
A Thousand And One Ways To Use Old Co-inkydinks.
