It’s been 253 days since we started this blog!
Actually, probably a little more than that – I was too lazy to actually add up all the days, so I used an online calculation website to do it. Anyway, let’s assume we created the blog around 1am on 10/26/12, which is probably about right. That adds 18 hours and about 30 minutes to the grand total for how long we’ve been running.
I’m not going to do seconds. Minutes are already inaccurate enough, as they’re ticking away while I’m writing this.
So why is this cool? Well, for a few reasons. First of all, it doesn’t contain the digit string, “2-8-5-7,” which appeared in 90% of all my physics calculations this past year. That got freaky. Second of all, it’s cool because there are no patterns. Aside from a repeating 3 on the end of the first decimal and the string, “3-6-5,” (number of days in a year) nothing in any of these numbers is at all significant, notable, or well-known. Much like this blog, most people have likely not seen these exact numbers before (okay, okay, if you view one six-digit integer every day [000000-999999] and you’re currently 35 or older, the chances are fairly good that you’ve seen the number 365,430. In fact, the probability of that is 1.27%. But do most people look at six-digit numbers every day? No. So can we just go by the assumption that most people haven’t seen these numbers before? Okay, thanks.)
Anyway, I guess I’m writing about this blog through random numbers. We don’t really have any significance. We’re not seemingly random, we are in fact random. We aren’t famous, our lives tend not to have great significance, and we’re certainly not well-known.
But the same people who saw the numbers saw the blog, and as long as that keeps being true I’ll keep writing. Obviously, someone’s listening.
As always, thanks for reading.
