Hi! I'm not sure that I understand the English verb phrase "to know people".
Does it always imply "to meet each other, have a talk, conversation, when each knows other"?
Or it could be the case when someone knows about the other, but the other doesn't know someone?
Peter knows much about the artist Jim Carrey, so Peter knows this artist, but Jim Carrey doesn't know something about Peter, so Jim doesn't know Peter.
So, the sentence,"I have known many interesting people and Jim Carrey is one among them" has sense in this case? If yes, it doesn't mean that I don't know them any more? It mean that I knew them before and know still know.
