Continuing the discussion from Sexual Assault Allegations vs Max Temkin (CAH):
This is so off-topic to the original post that I felt it needed a separate thread - is there a German word* for the feeling of almost recognizing someone but realizing that it’s not actually the person you know? Something more precise than doppelgänger?
I bring this up because the friend on Twitter quoted in the original post has the same name, hair color, and almost the same username as a friend of mine on another forum. She even lives in the state where my friend used to live. I had to take a few moments to review what I knew of my friend “No, she’s too old for this to be her… and she lives in California now.”
* There usually is, and I used to have a friend from Bavaria I could ask but I haven’t spoken to him in quite a while.
