Curiouser and curiouser…

Intrigued by your interests on ScienceBlogs, I did an experiment.

I took a look at what you were searching for a year ago, during the month of June 2010 and uncovered some curious things. As in my last post {Inquiring Readers Want to Know: “Why Is My Poop Green?}, I focused on your top 500 keywords (out of 343,309.) Lists such as these could provide endless possibilities of topics for blog posts. There’s simply not enough time – anyone want to help write some of these?

    No such thing as liquid mountaineering. The videos were made by placing a bridge made out of plexiglass or another see-through material under the water, and using a camera angle that did not show the bridge. The guys then ran across the bridge, making it look like they were walking on water.

    Mythbusters recreated this on their show a few months back.
