I’d just like to take a moment to point a little something out that reveals a bit about some of the folks (including us) who stop by here.
The other day, Kate’s birthday (it also happens to be some minor celebration called New Year’s Day or something), Kate was a bit…um… tipsy. Whilst in that condition, and wearing nothing but a lamp shade (she actually was), she travels over to the Bad Astronomy blog and in a heavily trafficked post, comments that she is naked and drunk, and it’s her birthday.
She was acknowledged by exactly one commenter (Kate says Thanks and Hi Irishman!) and got exactly zero clicks on her name from that posting.
Yesterday, I popped into a thread that had two comments on it, and mentioned that something interesting was going on at Majestic Peak Observatory, and I’ve gotten upwards of 70 referrals directly from that comment.
What the hell is wrong with us people? Where are our priorities?
