As a homeowner and inhabitant of the planet, Stephen is really hoping Earth continues to be.Doomer though I am, I'm with Colbert. I may repost this at Crazy Eddie's Motie News on Tuesday, after I post the worksheet for "Treasures of the Earth: Power" that I promised to post three weeks ago, the winners for Dramatic Presentation at the Hugo Awards, and the winners of the Teen Choice Awards.
( Four comments from Kunstler's blog, all mentioning the election. )
Since I posted July's saved comments yesterday, I have today free to do something not related to my blogging and commenting life elsewhere. WXYZ provided me that something yesterday with On Harry Potter's birthday, a reminder: Daniel Radcliffe is a Red Wings fan.
After 28 years of living here, I've learned that Detroit media will celebrate any connection with Detroit.
By the way, if one of the comments below looks familiar, it's because I recycled most of it into The Archdruid and I talk drum corps.
( Six comments from Greer's and Kunstler's blogs with Kustler's mostly about the election. )
Enough meta. Here are the introduction, which got to the first draft stage, and the data.
September 2016 saw 18,069 page views and 66 comments for 30 posts over 30 days. Those stats translate into 602.3 page views per day and per post and 2.2 comments per post and per day. The total, per day, and per post page view numbers were all records for September, as were the comments per post. In addition, the blog passed 700,000 page views early in the month. Since the blog passed 500,000 page views during September of last year, it's on pace for 200,000 page views per year.

"2) Perhaps as a function of No. 1, it ends up in the US House of Representatives. The catch is: members aren’t limited to Trump or HRC. They can vote for whoever they like."
No, that's not exactly true. Here is the relevant passage of the 12th Amendment, which reformed presidential elections.
"The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President."

Just like Emoji Day, National Junk Food Day is a holiday I deem unworthy of mention at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, especially when it's in competition with National Moon Day, which is. That might change next year, so long as the U.S. has a president who likes junk food. Stay tuned and Happy National Junk Food Day!
The blog passed 800,000 page views about 8 AM on 12/7/16. It published its 3000th post on 12/8/16. The month ended with 37 comments and 36,117 page views, the second most of any month behind only October 2016.

The second is Maya Rudolph Struggled Getting into Character as Cartoon Emoji from Late Night with Seth Meyers, which was taped on World Emoji Day. She even mentions that in the video.
As I wrote in the subject line, first-rate voice talent for a second-rate movie. Maybe it will be better than I fear.
There are some holidays I don't plan on blogging at Crazy Eddie's Motie News. World Emoji Day is one of them. Here's what National Day Calendar says about the holiday.

I'll be back tomorrow with the entries I actually posted at my main blog.
Happy Bastille Day! Over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, I wished my readers a drum corps Bastille Day, just as I did last year. However, I have more material saved up than I used this year at the main blog. As I have written multiple times, most recently in Tipsy Bartender recipes for National Mojito Day, "I'm an environmentalist; not only do I recycle, I conserve my resources." In the meantime, Vive La France!
