Statistical Improbability

I hadn’t written anything new of substance (last post was on new year’s day), and didn’t expect anything magical. Just the regular, measly 300-odd page-views for the day.

Well thank FSM mom wasn’t home, or she’d think Social Science had finally taken its toll over my brain. Of course, this was a one-day occurrence. The Avatar Movie Review post. Probably some people had gone bonkers over the fantastic movie, and wanted to read about it. Of course, it didn’t stop me from tweeting about it.

But it happened again. Yesterday.

This can mean only two things:

1) The world is ending because the Mayans are enraged with me writing giving a bad review about their movie.

2) I’m making it big in the blogging world! Yeah, baby!
