I have been playing around with my site stats, and I thought you might like to know what my most popular pages have been. There are some surprises.
1. Survival, psychopathy, and Smurf porn was the page which first reminded me that there was a stats facility which would give me details of how many hits a page had had and where they came from. In this case the very words 'Smurf porn' had ensured that this post featured on the first page of Google if you mentioned those words. You could have knocked me down with a feather. I hope the Googlers weren't too disappointed with the almost total lack of Smurf porn in the post!
2. Smurf porn! Smurf porn! Smurf porn! Well, it worked once...
3. The 10 best mass protests was actually reproduced directly from an article by Ed Vulliamy, published originally in The Observer.
4. Свобода або Смерть (3) was the last of three articles I wrote about Ukrainian anarchist leader Nestor Makhno. It attracted a number of long and interesting comments.
5. The Five Champions was my attempt at writing a 'mumming play', plus further observations about the blackening the face in English traditional ritual. One of the most difficult aspects of this topic has been persuading American readers to separate it from stage 'blackface' entertainment. The post includes clips to some interesting examples of traditional British sword dancing.
6. Smurf porn: 'Legally Lesbian Smurfs' ... well... okay I had another go, this time satirising mainstream porno. I'm actually surprised this doesn't sit at No.3!
7. Of Anarchism, Lies, and Sports bras. It does exactly what it says on the tin!
8. Brain-teasers. I asked three questions, two of which were (slightly) trick questions and the other was a plea for information on a simply matter of physics.
9. More of Keats and Chapman - one of many!
10. Brain-teasers and guns, where you will find the answers to the brain-teasers in No.8 and a history of gun control in the UK.
Any of these might be worth revisiting, don't you think? :-)
