One of the peculiar gifts for RantWoman of Facebook has been contact with the present and past selves of people she went to high school with, in many cases people RantWoman completely did not connect with in school.
One gift of Facebook has been to see who went to kindergarten with each other and when other figures entered the picture. Sixth grade (RantWoman) definitely trumps say 11th grade English and orchestra (a friend of RantWoman's).
But another peculiar gift is obituaries. This one is sad but striking.
