How Many of Me, Revisited

In 2006, I said: reports that there are 376 Patrick Rices in the United States.

I had the notion this morning to check again. The results were…discouraging:

There are 343 people in the U.S. named Patrick Rice.

Thirty-three of my doppelgangers have vanished since 2006: that’s one every 104 days, more or less. If current trends continue, by June 22, 2113 there will be no one left on Earth named Patrick Rice.
