If search strings were writing assignments ...

From time to time I have a look at the search strings that have brought readers to this blog. Looking at some of the recent queries, I can't help but wonder what kind of blog this would be if these described my main focus:

sarcastic jokes i do not get it is it a gender thing

percentage of academic job applicants are women

SJSU layoffs

In order to predict whether or not a single-replacement reaction takes place, you need to consult a chart that shows the ____

Sad, weird, and odd: a 1kg spectacled owl attacked, killed, and ate (part of) a defenseless three-toed sloth. Apparently the owl stabbed its talons in the sloth's neck while it was on the way to the ground to defecate, and then pecked its organs out. I wish I was kidding.

objectifying women for a good cause

What are the good causes? So we can be sure to do it ethically and all that.

I'm sure that search (objectifying women for a good cause) had to do with the recent Boobquake event. Check out http://blaghag.com for the story.
