Google your SSN

Just for grins , I Googled my SSN and got this : -1760!

It just did the math ~ 000-00-0000 ~and gave me what I asked for!

Is your SSN more or less than mine?

Do you have a warrant or are you citing the Patriot Act?

I suspect that googling your SSN could open you up to identity theft issues since the search can be trivially be associated with your IP (and therefore your name/addr).

I'd avoid doing it.

there is no way I'm going to do that..I may own google stock but I don't trust them to protect my information...I think they record searches to feed their servers...

Kind of reminds me a site that "as a service" would check to see if your identity had been stolen. All you had to do is enter your SS#... That sounds safe.... not

In addition to Google having your SSN, any site you get to via a link on the results page can get your SSN. I just wouldn't do it.

Do it on a calculator. I'll bet you get the same answer, and it's safe.

Sorry we're not having more fun with this, MickyD. Some of us see no point to "how big is your's" threads unless we can get a bead on your net worth. BTY, my SS number subtracts to a much bigger negative number than -1760.

Hard to express! How about this: The absolute value of mine is over twice the absolute value of his.

Neat! Mine came to exactly -1000. Surely there is some hidden meaning in a result like that!
