    What about all the nameless paupers/homeless, people that have no certain date of death by us, tribesmen, &c.?

    I was a dragon. If reincarnation is real who can deny that I might have been a dragon? A big one at that, roar!

    Isn't karma supposed to govern who or what you become, based on how nice you were during your life? If so, those people must have been utter bastards.

    I was Jon-Erik Hexum.

    I should probably stop pursuing a military career if my last incarnation died from a firearm accident...

    This guy looks pretty cool. Of course I'm either him, Robert E. Howard (wrote Conan the Destroyer) or Agent Richard T. Cleary, who died of a heart attack while on duty.

    I was someone. And before that, someone. And someone before that. But before that - Washington, Washington.

    I'm unsure if there's a pure recycle when it comes to souls. It's quite likely that in the many years of humans being a species, at least 100 billion people have already died. There aren't that many humans alive right now, and considering the specifics of reincarnation, can I actually be sure I was a human in my last life?

    Wow. Three days later, I would have been Franco. (Who died on 20 November 1975)

    A much more fun game would be for us to try to guess other people's ages. Of course, that only works for those that haven't given away blatant clues such as "I'm at university", or "I was born exactly 49 days after this famous person died."

    Being at university isn't an indication of any specific age over about 18 or 19.

    Technically no, but in practice it's a fairly specific range.

    Wouldn't we technically need to find the date of our conception? Or do Buddhists ascribe that our spirit flies into our open, wailing mouths as we are born?

    I just checked that out, that's a huge discrepancy in the online source I used to find Agent Cleary. I also found the same discrepancy here.

    Because if a guy commits suicide at 30, he totally lived for another 50 years.

    Well. I did enter my birthday date and subtracted 49 days afterwards.

    Gross: Robert E. Howard? Awesome writer.
