Dr Fumanchu calling?

One of the amusing things I get to see, is the stats on both my blogs, and get to see how views are going, and other stuff. Until this year, this was always the more popular blog, presumably because some of the ‘kinky’ stuff kept coming up in searches, seemingly for brainwashing helmets, and mind control game shows, given I know which blogs are read the most. Mind, that was comparing about 30 a day on here on a posting day, about 20 otherwise, compared to at best, 15 and 10 on my more personal blog.

Then at the start of this year, the other blog exploded into life, dwarfing this one, even if this pretty much stood still. 100 views per day became the norm, and quite often more, even topping 200 a few times. And for 8 months or so, that streak continued, but then… The other blog stats collapsed, going down to single figure viewing figures for a week or two. Then just over a week ago, ‘normal’ service resumed, and the lowest this week so far, is 150 in a day!

The strange thing I’ve noticed, is that one popular location has appeared out of nowhere, Hong Kong! I’m averaging about 25-35 views per day from that location alone at the moment, and I have no idea why.

Has Doctor Fumanchu finally caught up with my blogs, is realising that I want something ‘delicious’ done to my mind, and body, and is just reading up on me, before offering to take control of me, brainwash me, or turn me into a robot, who knows? No, I dont think it is, given he’s supposedly a fictional character, but it would be so much fun, if true. Hey, if its some other wicked scientist from that area, with sinister designs for me, bring them on!

But yes, I do wonder what happened for those 2 weeks or so, thats for sure?

Right, video time. Well, Hong Kong is part of China nowadays, so this came to mind. A pretty decent live performance, though if anyone wants to go find the original video, fine by me!

Mad about the stats?

Well, some of us are getting ready for the play offs this week. No, I know, baseball play offs are about 6 weeks away, which are main concern for me, but this week, and indeed for about 140 others, the golf play offs start after tonight! Oh, that, well, its 125 players, and 15 rivals in the competition, if you must know!

Yes, the PGA regular season actually finishes today, but our contest season ended last week, after the final major. Somehow, more by luck than judgement, I came 4th, of 51 entries! So yes, therefore I’m in the 16 player play off, though for how many rounds, I have no idea! And like those big soccer tournaments, the play offs are 2 leg affairs, home advantage being the first to pick their 5 players! So, this round, and if qualifying, at least for the next round, I get home advantage in second leg, as the higher seed!

Let me say though, that if anyone thinks this means I have a shrewd knowledge of all things golf, you’d be wrong! Stats, darlings, stats are all I use, and go by. No, I’m not saying what stats, in case one of my opponents tries to sabotage my plan, but expert studying, and stuff like that, no chance!

Even more so, is a soccer contest I do, now that the season has started again. Thats right, a sport I cant even stand, but currently I’m in the top thousand, out of over 100 thousand entries. How, just following the stats! So if you ever wanted evidence that you dont need to know much, to do well at fantasy sports games, look at me! Oh, and soon, guesswork on NFL too, absolutely!

So yes, all those who study intently, good luck to you, I’m eating ice cream by then, lol!

Video time. Bit like my knowledge of soccer, I know nothing about Caro Emerald either. But if she’s good enough for Jools Holland, she’s good enough for me!
