New technology now allows us to find out who we were in our most recent past lives!

My most famous past incarnation was as the explorer Vasco da Gama and sadly as a bug a few times too.

    A veritable host and varied plethora of international royalty, nobility and power, interspersed with the odd bee, clam and pigeon. Most recently, apparently, I was Ned Sparks.
    What a come-down....

    (I've just done my husband's; His most famous incarnation was King Richard I, also known as 'The Lionheart'. I daren't tell him, it's bound to go to his head, and I'll never hear the end of it.
    The fact he was a housefly for 4 days will pale into insignificance.....)

    Yeah. And a blade of grass. And a Rock.

    Since when does a Rock have transmutable Consciousness...?!

    According to Shinto .... spirits also live in rocks...
    Besides I've met people who were as thick as a brick ;)

    Amongst other things I was once a tapeworm which is enough to give anyone the shits ....

    Don't worry. They're committed to ignoring us. Reminds me of the short story, "They're Made of Meat".

    Jackie Robinson

    Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson (January 31, 1919 – October 24, 1972) was an American baseball player who became the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball (MLB) in the modern era.

    I always was good at baseball when I was a kid. :)
