2000000_1 Congratulations to the blog! Here are last night’s statistics:

Total number of hits: 2,001,100
Average per day: 3335.17
Today: 8044
In the last hour: 508
This week: 39717

I know it’s not Go Fug Yourself, and still I’m very pleased...

Every day there are thousands of visitors who arrive here through the search engines (mostly through Google), because “Grow-a-brain” shows as the first or second result to hundreds of search queries. Generally I assumed that these are people who “stumble” into the site, and who possibly stumble right out again. But the more I thought about it, the more I’ve to come appreciate these visits. I now realize that there are many postings here that truly deserve to be the answers people are looking for when they hit the “I feel Lucky” button. It’s actually pretty humbling. Here are a few examples:

Things to do before you die
Realtors Bloggers
Odd & Crazy
Coppola's The Conversation
Unicorn for sale
Military invasion of Iran
Death & Eternity
Who we’all honorin’ here today?
Alinea restaurant
"You're entering a world of pain". And many more.

So, until the next benchmark, here are a few, free gifts for you: The beautiful Magic carpet and Escape from The Museum of visual poetry by artist Jose Santos

Congratulations! Quite impressive. (And I'm one information junkie that "feels lucky" that I found your blog.)
