Serious Question, You Guys March 26, 2013

Posted by Sobek in News.

Suppose you had this elaborate plan to sneak into LauraW’s house late at night, chloroform her into unconsciousness, and then tattoo something onto her hump so she would always remember you.  What kind of tattoo would be the best thing for that situation?

I wonder if blogs have a natural life span, after which they must adapt (i.e. add lots of co-bloggers who occasionally add content) or die a sad, lingering death.

Seems like life has become quite a bit more intense for a lot of people over the past couple of years, so they have less time for the blogosphere. I know that’s been the case for me for the last six months. I tried to keep regularly posting here for a while, but since the beginning of the year I’ve been floundering.

It’s sad. We need three or four posts a day to wake this place up, but I don’t think we can get three or four a week.

When life sucks, you need good friends and good laughs more, not less.

*sigh*

Tattoo? Hmm… something Dante I think…

I’ll post something on dbs jr. when it seems less depressing and bitchy. I will say that he’s married now. I’ll save the rest for a regular post.

Wow, awesome suggestion Sobek. That would be a GREAT tat for Laura’s hump, only it should be in Sanskrit or something so it looks exotic, and be flanked by butterflies and hummingbirds that appear to be nesting in the bristles.

I’m thinking more of a tatoo of Obama and the kids in Bermuda, having fun, soaking up some sun while all of those other little urchins who spent last summer with bake sales in order to go to Washington DC and visit the White House get stiffed.

But that’s just me.

I’m trying to imagine a situation where a crocodile could ‘sneak’ into my house late at night.

The scraping of claws and scales against linoleum and oak floors would raise the dead. No way, can’t be done. Nice try, sprout.

Sorry guys. Just don’t feel like doing much of anything. Seem to spend a lot of time apologizing though, so that’s some kind of activity I guess.

Good one, Wiser!

11. wiserbud - March 26, 2013

hey, I could have suggested that that be tattooed elsewhere on your person….

12. lauraw - March 26, 2013

Best.
Tramp-stamp.
Ever.

But you dint.

Reticence, it’s so, not like you.

Inorite?

Best.
Tramp-stamp.
Ever.

From what I heard, it is already trademarked by LiLo.

“Sobek wuz here”

The problem with IB is that we have failed to broaden our content in order to appeal to a wider audience. Just look at all the places from which we have received 3 or fewer unique visitors:

Curacao
Timor-Leste
Kiribati
Burundi
Falkland Islands
Montserrat
Samoa
Vatican City
Guinea
Niue
United States Minor Outlying Islands
Republic of the Congo
Turkmenistan

Let’s be honest. Do the good folk of Niuwe want to read about Laura’s hump? No, I submit, they do not.

17. lauraw - March 26, 2013

Agreed.

yeah.

that’s it.

Personally, I think you should pay geoff to create a new chart every day.

Talk about increasing traffic….

Disclaimer: there ain’t much going on over here and there hasn’t been for a while. Sobek is right, it’s kinda played. That’s ok.

Second disclaimer: I have dual loyalties since I can post here and at H2. Treble if you count the blog that actually has this traffic that wiser’s giggling about to himself.

That said, “traffic” isn’t 8 to 12 people tittering each other in comment threads all day like they do on Facebook.

This word you are using, “traffic”. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I picture a couple of tiny little mountain climbers going up the hump.

21. wiserbud - March 27, 2013

This word you are using, “traffic”. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I was, in no way, making a comparison between the kind of “traffic” that H2 gets, which is mainly the same group of 15 meth-addled monkeys pounding on their F5 key like it owes them money.

I was genuinely referring to the type of traffic that geoff is famous for generating with his charts.

I was also trying to get Michael to pay him.

22. daveintexas - March 27, 2013

Goddamn. First reticence, and now you’re being serious?

Who are you and what have you done wiserbud?

wiserbud - March 27, 2013

I’m maturing.

Like a fine wine.
