A six-figure number is probably not great, compared with the big names and their millions of hits, but it's not to be sneered at, either.

Gnomon - time to move on

I remember that a few years ago, the statistics showed huge hits on one particular entry, a collaborative entry which I had been heavily involved with. But then it turned out that most people left the site within 15 seconds of finding this entry.

It was obvious they searched, found it, looked at it, then realised it wasn't what they were looking for. That entry was:

It's easier to turn off the TV than to turn off the significant other who keeps nagging you. smiley - smiley

Why would anybody want to do that, paul? The tv can take your mind of the nagging. Maybe even outshout it into insignificance smiley - whistle

There was a cartoon about a og who was nagged about watching too much TV. So he clicked the remote and turned off the person who was nagging. smiley - smiley

Chauncey Gardner tried turning off annoying people with a TV remote, and they made him President of the USA.
