Ryan Yu, Where Did You Go?
The internet is proving to be more than just a game with difficult levels and tough Kung-fu type bosses. It has turned out to be a pretty useful tool. In "The Fast And The Furious" Domenic found out everything he thought he needed about Brian Spilner on the internet.
I took a page from his book and, using the all-powerful internet, attempted to find my best friend, Ryan Yu, who moved to Sarnia when we were in grade 10.
I tried using Google Maps, which didn't work, because Ryan isn't an address. I ran into the same error on MapQuest as well. I tried entering my own address, and I was astounded to see that Ryan supposedly lived at my house! I looked around but couldn't find him, so it must have been an error.
A few of my best memories of Ry include watching Ed-209 "malfunction" in Robocop, having Zap It watergun fights in the summer, and learning to skateboard. Ryan was good. I stunk. Giving up was inevitable. Mountain biking was more my thing.
Once in a while I searched for Ryan on Classmates.com, hoping he would post himself. He didn't. So I searched for him.
During my searching I came across the above picture, with Ryan Yu front and centre, giving the thumbs up after a Kendo Championship win in 1999. His Kendo group practised at University of Toronto and I assume that U of T was his choice for an institution for higher learning during the mid 1990's.
So where is Ry now? I dunno. That's why I've enlisted a group of ruthless internet minions to help me in my search.
Go, minions, and bring me news of Ryan's whereabouts!
