666


June 06, 2006. Feel the burn.

And if you're wondering what city googles "666" the most, it's Lima Peru. Maybe that's why it's appearing red on this CNN map. I found this delicious little tidbit by using Google Trends, which I was alerted to by this article from SFGate.com. I find this article particularly interesting since this is the Chicago suburb that my parents lived in when I was born and where I spent my first two years. Did they get us out of there because of all the sex going on everywhere? Is this why my otherwise totally incompatible parents had sex a minimum of two times in Elmhurst and once shortly after in Pittsfield? What would have happened if I had stayed in Elmhurst? Would I be producing RevCo tracks with Al Jorgensen right now? Wasn't Big Black (Songs About Fucking) from Chicago? Did they reside in Elmhurst perhaps? I know former hockey great Tony Esposito lived around the corner from us. What does this say about him and the sport of hockey itself? Fascinating development indeed. Or as the city of Elmhurst's economic development website's front page advertises: "IDEAL":



The article also points out that my current home of Cambridge MA is ranked # 1 in "Tom Cruise" google searches (I'm not responsible for more than 1/2 of those). I also did a little research of my own and am proud beyond words to report that Cambridge also leads US cities in "douchebag" searches. Boston is # 7. I love this town.

(I was alerted to this article by the Not Safe For Work Fleshbot.com, which also had an interesting post on pornographic crocheting. Art these days. Everybody's gotta have a hook.)

6-6-06. This is fun, but in a make-fun-of-the-superstitious-people kind of way (not just Peruvians!). Of course, there's no such thing as gods, demons, angels, ghosts, et cetera.

I'm inclined to agree. check out freethinker's list of other numbers associated with the Beast here.

I think blogspot is powered by google too. and of course, there's always googlewhacking.

One person found my blog by searching the words "Seinfeld Douchebag Elaine" on google. This fact has been a source of endless amusement.

I once dated a girl named Seinfeld Douchebag Elaine.
