The hit count on my blog has just smashed through the 40,000 barrier in just under 12 months, and although I’ve not researched this properly, I’m pretty sure that makes it the best blog ever written, ever.
Here are some not so interesting facts about the number 40,000:
It comes after the number 39,999
There is a game called Warhammer 40,000
A man took 40000 ecstasy tabs in a nine year span
It comes before the number 40,001
40,000 is a round number
Asteroid 40000 has the provisional designation 1998 HZ87 and was discovered on April 21st 1998 in Socorro
40,000 is the only number to end with four zeros and start with one four
A footprint of early humans found in Mexico was 40,000 years old
40,000+ is the visitor count of popular, intelligent, and witty writer Evanescent
I originally posted my blog on MySpace as a way to rant incoherently about football and everyday things that pissed me off in an attempt to look cleverer than I was. That’s not me anymore – I’ve stopped writing about football.
I’ve moved from just “atheist” to “humanist” to “anti-theist”, before discovering Ayn Rand, and I proudly identify myself as an Objectivist now. Not only has this been of great personal benefit to me, I think it gave my blog a whole new lease of life. I’ve also had the dubious pleasure of having many political and ethical debates as a result.
I haven’t posted much recently as nothing has moved me to write an in-depth article, and I’m also drafting a perennially-planned work of fiction. I’ll release more information about this in the coming months. Needless to say this will make me rich and famous, but I won’t forget you my readers, the little people, for putting me where I am.
