It's cool when you find out that someone famous has the same hometown as you do, or where you just moved to. You may have been sharing the same general "living space" as someone famous and never even knew it.

Your hometown hospital maybe, not only was your first encounter with the outside world...it could also have been where it's entirely possible that you went to the same coffee shop and ordered a hot mocha latte just like B-Coops (my nickname for Bradley Cooper), assuming he likes coffee. You could have also purchased a pair of shoes from the same shoe store as Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, or Chris Pratt.

Each section of the country has its share of "famous" people, and without looking up any stats or asking google, I bet the Northeast has more than its fair share. Being from the Midwest, the "famous" were few and far between, just like everything else was in the Southeast corner of Kansas. But, I will say, in my time there I spotted a few of the "famous" back there, mostly professional or college athletes, but none lived close to where I actually resided. You had to be in the city, like a rural midwesterner might say, to spot a famous human out in the wild.

As far as bumping into someone famous here in this part of the country, it's a little more possible.

The Jewelry of A Treasure's Trove And Where They Were Found

A Treasure's Trove is a book that offered clues to the location of hidden tokens throughout the United States. The book has ties to Danbury, Connecticut, and Robert Underhill, the founder of Jewelry Designs and maker of most of the jewelry featured. The tokens were hidden from sea to shining sea from Swanny City Park in Moab, Utah to Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania.
