There Are Stats, Tilly Bud Stats, And Google-Inflated Stats

29 Jan

I never thought there’d come a time when I would be annoyed to have four thousand hits in one day.  That day was yesterday.

A large snowflake was measured on 28 January, 1887; I mentioned it in a post in 2010; Google Doodle celebrated the anniversary of that snowflake yesterday.  

4,225 people came to my blog in search of a Google Doodle snowflake.  4,225 people went away disappointed, without even so much as one – one, mind you, out of 4,225 – ‘Like’ or comment for my large snowflake post.

I’m annoyed.  My stats are all out of sync now.  Google Doodle better watch it; I’m in the mood to take on a conglomerate.

And what kind of multi-billion pound business celebrates the anniversaries of snowflakes anyway?  I’m so irritated, I’m not even going to provide a link to Google, Google Doodle, or any snowflakes.  That’ll teach ’em.

I went to the butcher’s the other day and I bet him fifty quid that he couldn’t reach the meat off the top shelf.

He said, ‘No thanks; the steaks are too high.’
